this afternoon was such an informative and fun one! when I first started looking into seriously blogging, I came across the twitter handle (@BlogBrunch), blogbrunch. Every month they host an hour long informative session where you network and connect with other bloggers.

blogbrunch provides you with topics and you sound off with the hashtags on twitter.

I can't tell you how excited I was to partake in it!

here is what I learned:

  • if you are going to do sponsored posts {which, is so new to me and still looking into} make sure that you have more than enough regular content. keep the percentage of sponsored content less than 20%.

  • if you are starting out and want to look into ad hosting, keep your rates low. the suggested range is $5-10 a month starting out.

  • don't be afraid to reach out to other bloggers for help, guest posts or giveaways.

  • make sure you are following the proper FTC guidelines for disclaimers. a wonderful blogger suggested this which I will be digging into and learning about before anything.

  • have fun and be original!

I absolutely loved talking with all of you ladies. so many wonderful ideas and information along with beautiful and fun blogs that are now in my favorites!

can't wait to keep learning!
