Announcing my new online class: Marketing for Creatives

Since I joined the Studio Calico team, I’ve been excited to have the opportunity to share some of my passions on a larger scale. So of course, I jumped at the opportunity to lead a class on marketing for the creative entrepreneur that the Studio Calico community had been asking for awhile.

This class packs in a ton of content in our four weeks together! I hope you’ll join us if you ready to take your creative blog and online presence to the next level!

Whether you’re a beginner or have been at it for a while, I will help you go from hobbyist to professional with the all-new online class Marketing for Creatives. You’ll learn from myself and a few of my experienced creative friends how to create a marketing strategy for your online presence, generate relevant content that keeps readers coming back, promote your brand using major social media outlets and more!



What comes with this class:

  • Four weeks of lessons and videos sharing some of my expert advice from my 10 years of blogging and professional marketing experience
  • Features from some of my friends who are bloggers and creatives who will let you in on their secrets and give you tips and resources to either get started or take your online presence to a new level
  • Weekly assignments and action plans to get it done
  • Live group Q & A chat
  • Access to a class message board and gallery where you can share and learn with me and fellow students
  • Printable blog planner sheets from Hello Forever, including a content calendar, post planner and a monthly check-in sheet to help you track your stats and set goals (preview coming soon!)

Category: Blogging

Hello friends, family and internets!

I have been a very bad blogger. My self-worth is not directly related to the stats on the hits I get for my blog, but there has been a very downward trend over the past year, and I'd like to do something about it.

I participated in a social media and blogging workshop a few weeks back from a guru in that area, and now I'm going to be putting some of the knowledge and some ideas that have been brewing in my head, to good use.

Pardon the dust around here in the next week as I make some changes! What do you have to look forward to? Daily posts – and they won't always be about Colin (though he sure is a good-lookin' kid, so there will still be quite a few for the family). ;)

In some of my pondering on what exactly I want to voice on this blog I came to the realization that I am the following things: a (new) mom, a wife, a Mompreneur, a crafter, a designer, a home-decor-cook-garden-lifestyle lover, of course, a Believer, and a lover of many, many things. And I really have a lot to say on all of those topics. So, I'm going to reach into all of those categories for my blog posts.

So, with that, let's get started!
