October is here and I’m super happy about it. Baggy jumper/ boot combinations and rainy weekends spent indoors are what I live for but that does mean that I’m a little behind on my September favourites. These four are more than worth the wait though, I promise.
Jess is a fellow freelancer based here in Nottingham and her blog is full of great content for creatives. I particularly loved her post about the importance of building a community when you freelance. It’s something I struggle with working full-time as well as freelancing but I’m working on it and she’s pointed me in the direction of some amazing groups and meetups I can get involved in.
Try as I might, I just can’t quite get my head around Pinterest and I know I’m not the only one. It’s something I see a lot of people talking about almost daily on social media. There are plenty of articles out there detailing how we should be using it but they’re a little overcomplicated for me. I want Pinterest 101 and I feel like that’s exactly what this post from Coco’s Tea Party is.
Self-doubt. We all suffer with it to some extent, don’t we? I don’t think I’ve actively tried to do anything about it until I read this post though. I figured it’s something everyone struggles to overcome but this post is full of advice to help you do that. From celebrating your wins to accepting constructive criticism it provides some light at the end of the self-doubt tunnel.
Anna from The Anna Edit has been hands down my favourite blogger since forever. She’s a fellow Nottingham University graduate (whoop) and I genuinely love everything she wears, eats and stands for so when she announced she’s releasing a book in this post, I was obviously straight off to pre-order. As an organisation freak, I’m excited to discover even more ways to get my life in order and share my thoughts on the book here on my blog in the not so distant future.
This post is SO important! Success is paraded around on the internet no matter what platform you scroll through but what about the business ventures that didn’t work out or the content that flopped and lost you a hundred followers? Somehow people aren’t quite as willing to share these little screws ups. That’s exactly what makes this read so refreshing. Katie challenges what success really is, admits to a personal failure of hers and questions why it is we’re so reluctant to talk about them.
