So todays post is more of an update on what’s going on with the new blog! (im soooooo excited). Lately I’ve been spending literally all of my free time looking up self-hosted WordPress tips, what plugins to use etc. trying to get prepared for the launch of HerCharisma. I’ve been learning some amazing tips, and I wanted to share some things so you all know what to look forward too!
- Design: I’m having my design customized! I’ve never done this before but the designer I’m using has amazing reviews so I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
- Photography: I always admire other peoples outfit posts but never actually take the time to do my own. I use to feel like if it didn’t look as good as Jacey from Damsel and Dior that I shouldn’t even bother. First rule of blogging” Don’t compare yourself to other bloggers”, because essentially you talk yourself out of even trying. So this week I started looking into getting new photo equipment including a tripod, and camera remote. I’ve been dreaming of purchasing the Canon Rebel, but I may have to save up a little bit more! (PS: If any of you use this camera let me know how you like it)
- Social media: You may have noticed that everything on my Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest have been changed over to HerCharisma!. I wanted to do this now so that you all were familiar with seeing the name, so when the site launched it wouldn’t be a whole bunch of changes at once.
- Organization/Consistency: Between managing a full time job, my commute and personal life, my blog often times get stuck on the back burner and It’s been my biggest struggle to try and juggle it all. However I’m proud to announce I have finally downloaded an editorial calendar, got a new journal, and have really taken the time to understand the content and direction that I want this new blog to go in. I’m still deciding on what specific days I will be posting( right now I try to post 5 days a week), so I may have to cut back a little but we shall see!
As always I will keep you guys up to date with any new changes! I’m currently in the process of getting the design customized so as soon as that’s done and taken care of I will be able to announce an official launch date!
