3 Things I’m Doing Right Now To Improve My Blogging Game
My husband is extremley efficient. One of the major things he’s taught me over the years is to continuously improve upon your craft. He’s a big fan of finding a better solution for almost everything. Although I believe that there isn’t always a better solution, most times there is. I’ve been focusing a lot recently on my blogging strategy, and today I thought I would share 3 things I’m doing right now to improve my blogging game!
- Taking A Course- Right now I’m taking the Pinfinite Growth course, and it’s amazing so far. It not only helps you with your Pinterest strategy, but it also helps you redefine your business goals and helps to make sure you are focusing on the right things. When I first saw the price of the course I was a bit hesitant, but it really felt like an investment in my business, so it made sense.
- Cutting Out The Crap – I actually did this a long time ago when I decided what type of content I wanted to focus on, and it made my vision so much clearer. I decided I wanted to focus on fashion, motherhood, blogging tips/strategy, travel, and some other lifestyle content sprinkled in. Once I defined my focus, and “cut out the crap” that I didn’t want to write about or wasn’t performing well, it made everything so much easier.
- Limiting Scrolling Time– This has been a game changer. I incorporated this strategy about 6 months ago. I was spending too much time mindlessly scrolling through Instagram & Facebook. In my opinion scrolling is a huge time suck, a distraction, and not the best medicine for bloggers. It’s easy to get caught up in the comparison game when scrolling through Instagram and seeing other blogger’s perfect images. Just this action alone can make you feel like you’re not doing good enough. Limiting scrolling time, and focusing on YOU is HUGE. The way I implemented this strategy was by only getting on Instagram to post during the week. If I want to catch up with my friends or blogger buds via social media over the weekend I will allow myself a small amount of time while Noah is napping or when I have down time, but I make the time super limited… I actually find that I don’t even want to scroll on the weekend, so it’s freed up a lot of time for me. Obviously engagement on social media is huge, so I hired an assistant who helps me with this.
I hope these tips can help you out as well! They not only pertain to bloggers, but also to business owners. Anyone out there can focus on tip number 3 to save time, and focus on what’s most important. In my opinion that’s spending time with my family, and not my phone.

And how cute is this cut out sweater!? I saw it online and fell in love! I’m a huge fan of cold shoulder sweaters, and this one takes it to the next level. I love how unique it is! I’ve been wearing these jean leggings a lot on the blog & Instagram lately. They are my current favorites, and they are under $55! I still can’t believe they are from American Eagle. I had no idea they had such awesome distressed denim!
Such great tips! I’ve been wanting to take that Pinterest course, but wasn’t sure if it was worth the money! Let me know what you think! 🙂 xo
It’s amazing so far! It’s been really helpful!
Great post and tips! I need to incorporate some of these into my routine this year.
Enrolling in Pinfinite Growth is on my list for 2017! I have heard amazing things about it. I’m glad you are liking it!
Such great tips! I definitely agree it’s really easy to get distracted by social networks! xx
I’ve heard so many amazing things about that course! Definitely need to look into it! Love those booties btw girl!
You will love it!
I LOVE these tips!!! I definitely want to take a course ASAP and I think that’ll help me ‘cut the crap’ too 😉 I am going to look into this one!! I also love your tip of cutting down on the scrolling time. Especially in today’s emotionally political world, it not only takes my time, but scrolling is affecting me emotionally…I need to STOP!!
I love your tips babe! It’s so hard to separate yourself from other bloggers, you get caught up in loving what they do and you really start comparing yourself. Thanks for sharing! xoxo
Such helpful tips! I agree with finding you niche and sticking to it. Instagram is such a huge time sink and I need to do what you have done!
LOVE the limited scrolling time!! I need to do that!
I’ve always loved American Eagle jeans, they fit so well and are a great price! I’ve been really trying to not scroll as much too. I found that I was starting the comparing game again and not being confident in my own work and that didn’t feel good. So I’m trying to focus more on my own stuff. Thanks for sharing these, I am always trying to learn new things.
I really need to limit my scrolling time too! I get so sucked in sometimes!! Such great goals girl!
