Surf the Web Saturdays – v. 27


I woke up early this morning because I’ll be attending Neely’s It Starts With Blogging course. Even though it’s really early Pacific Time, I’m so excited to get started and learn all that she has to share. You can never touch up on the basics too much, and there’s a lot in this course that I do need to learn like how to pitch brands and growing my social media platforms. Neely also has a couple of other courses that you can take, and I’d super suggest looking into it if you like learning about blogging! I’ll never forgive myself for not getting to meet up with her when I was in Dallas last weekend!

great blog posts

Because I need to get to her class, I can’t stay long here. But I wanted to share a few posts I’ve found this week that I think you’ll love!

Danielle shared 5 Reasons to Visit Lake Chelan in the fall. You may remember that I recently spent a weekend in Lake Chelan and did some solo wine tasting. It was awesome and her post makes me want to go back ASAP!

Fran has a free printable checklist for promoting each of your blog posts, as well as the links to many blogging Facebook groups. I was already a part of some of them so I’m excited to find some new ones, and I think you will be too!

The House of Muses has an incredible post about how to stay creative and actually make the dark winter days work for your creativity this winter. She also has a free printable in this post. I desperately needed this info because now that it’s dark when I wake up and dark when I leave work, I feel constantly tired. Thanks, PNW.

DiLusso Deli wins my favorite pin of the week with their post on how to host an at-home happy hour. I’ll definitely be using these tips for my 30th (ouch) birthday party!

Around WMSB: Don’t miss this post I wrote on the perfect Moving Announcement (or baby, wedding, pet themed) Christmas Cards this season.

Happy Saturday to you all! May it be filled with rest and productivity to accomplish your dreams!

    Thank you for these! They all seem really helpful… I wrote a post yesterday about how the dark winter days make me have to work harder to be happy and such- but using it as more creativity is what I hope to do!

      It’s so interesting to me how much the weather makes a difference. I’ve even considered getting a vitamin D light! Good job working to fight against it!
