We have been reading about coding, getting content together for DSS, student teaching, working, figuring out LiketoKnow.It, and learning how to use our fancy shmancy camera. Seriously, we’re just now figuring out how to use aperture, how to shoot in RAW, shutter speed, and what the heck ISO is?! Anyway, there’s whole lot more nonsense that has been taking up our time that we can’t remember right now because we’re border line ADD (not joking). We are finally feeling like our brand is a complete reflection of ourselves and vision, and we hope that inspires other bloggers to be original and authentic to themselves.
4. Don’t take things personally. Even when you think everyone is unicorns and glitter, that one lizard from Monsters Inc. will decide to throw you a curve ball. Not everyone is going to love what you have to say, what color lipstick you’re wearing that day, and/or the energy you put out (even it’s sunshine and Olaf singing in the background). Be confident that you’re putting good into the world even when others beg to differ.
5. Be original. You know the saying “mimicking is the best form of flattery.” Yeah. No. Nothing is more aggravating to see others in this line of business try to replicate your creativity. If you have a love, passion, vision, and drive to become a blogger, then it will show through. Creativity should come from you, not someone else’s Instagram. That being said, building your brand takes time and effort, and it’s more than okay if it doesn’t occur overnight. Promise yourself that you won’t fall to copying someone else’s hard work and posting it as your own.
