In the back of my mind, I knew there had to be a better way. There had to be one piece of software I could use for all of my graphic needs. Something that gave me the flexibility to create designs I could see in my head but couldn’t figure out how to replicate on any of the free software I had used.

When I started blogging in 2014, I really wanted to learn how to create printables. I dabbled in a few different free programs to create pins and printables for my site. Some were okay and others I had a hard time wrapping my mind around, but I pieced it together and made it work as best I could.

How to Think Long-term About a Big Promotion on your Blog

Have a big promotion coming up on your blog? Read this post to learn how to think long-term about it!

As you likely know, it was Amazon Prime Day this past Monday and Tuesday. And because of the affiliate income potential, this is one of a deal blogger’s favorite days each year.

I think this is a really fantastic question, because I sometimes just assume everyone sort of innately knows the answer to this. But that’s not true!

I’ve been blogging for 14 years nearly every single day, so I just sort of know what would make a great blog post or if an idea is something my audience would be interested in.

But when you’re first starting out, it’s easy to second guess yourself and wonder what you should post about.
