It’s about planting seeds for a long career…
Blogging is a hot topic. People ask me questions all the time, mainly about how to earn money.
It’s one thing to get some followers on instagram. But if you want to make a career from this (and one with longevity) then it’s useful to make a plan. The bloggers who are big now started 5-10 years ago when things were much easier. Now the rules have changed and it’s harder than ever to cut through the noise and get noticed. I have a personal list of blogging do’s and don’ts – and it’s the don’ts that are most important.
It’s been about 6 years since I went freelance and whilst it has it’s up’s and downs the overall experience has been positive. Previously I was working full time for a salon in London as a colourist. Then I set up a company with my boyfriend in Germany as we were preparing to launch our brand, Intensae nail lacquer. I combined working on the start-up with freelance jobs for a haircare brand to ensure the rent got paid each month. View Post
Oh lordy I have been struggling to blog this week and I’m blaming it on the gloomy weather. The sun disappeared behind a huge blanket of clouds and it’s done nothing but rain. It’s been a busy week with work which is great. On Monday I went to Stuttgart to pick up equipment for a photo shoot and Christian agreed to take some pictures of me for this blog post. Tuesday we drove to the shoot inside a factory located in the southern mountains which still looked beautiful in the insane rain that poured all day long. I also had a couple of opportunities for the blog which you will see in the next couple of months. View Post
