What I learned from my first Blog Conference #BBCDallas

5am at LAX airport. Super tired but excited to start our journey (That's Dinah!)

When I first started blogging, I did it because I loved going to other blogs, reading what they had to say & entering giveaways on their sites. I wanted to do that too because it looked like fun. While it is fun, it’s also A LOT of work. I didn’t know that you can actually make money at this & make it a business. One of the best resources I have used to help me in this journey has been The SITS {Read More}

Post coming!), and there was a question asked about what people used to schedule posts for Facebook (for Twitter I use Hootsuite but have heard that if you use it for Facebook, the amount of people that see your posts is a LOT smaller than if you do it through Facebook itself).

A Spectacled Owl’s New Look!

Lush Creative Luscious Graphic Design

At the end of November, I saw a giveaway over at Lush Creative for a mini blog makeover.  I really liked the sound of it since I liked the theme of my site but I am clueless about how to really personalize it.  I was SO excited when Shauna from Lush Creative emailed to let me know I won!  Basically, my only MUST was there had to be an owl with glasses.  I mean, the title of my blog doesn’t {Read More}
