How writing a blog post everyday has been so far-
When I started the 30 day blog challenge from Morgan of Construction2Style to write content for my new blog I was nervous.
How would affect my "brand?"
How much work it was going to be?
How I would share without sharing too much?
Do I have TIME for this?
I made a commitment and I want to always follow through no matter the doubts or obstacles.
I also wanted to tell the story behind the pictures. People love the before and after, but there is so much that goes on in the in between. All the after pics are a complication of so many decisions, steered by me, but also by the client's evolving style and realization of how they are going to use the space.
So, now 12 days in I am getting the hang of it (I think). I have loved recounting the process. I have enjoyed remembering the excitement of the clients, the worried texts when something was wrong, and the second guessing as they couldn't see the big picture that I had so clearly in my mind.
-Making a plan for the content for the rest of the month (while binge watching YOU in my pj pants)
Some things I have learned:
1. Morgan is right... batch writing is key. I sit down twice a week and pump them out. I already have the plan for what I am writing each day for the month and I have Hailey emailing clients and getting me the interview questions, but it still is time consuming!
2. I enjoy writing!
3. I have enough content to do 60 or 90 days straight, but I have a 3 post a week plan after this challenge is done. I have it all planned out until May!
4. I have had time to learn and reflect on the projects I have written about. I have 10-20 clients at a time so I am always go, go, go and when it wraps but I am already buried in the next projects.
5. I would like this to SOMEDAY be money generating with brand partnerhsips, ads, or even a podcast...big dreams!
Thank you for joining in and reading! I hope you got an insight into what we do, who we work with, the reality behind making old spaces new, and how awesome are clients are!
