The DIY Playbook’s 3rd Annual Blog Week + a Giveaway
October 23, 2017
Happy “Blog Week”
Happy Monday & welcome to The DIY Playbook’s 3rd (!!) annual BLOG WEEK, where we will be taking a break from all things DIY to chat about some behind-the-scenes blog tips and topics that often don’t get addressed around here.
Ironically blog week is some of our most popular content from years past. I guess it makes sense since we are constantly getting questions in our real lives and messages on social media/email about starting a blog and running this blog. How do you make money? Are you quitting your day jobs? How do I start working with brands? What should I charge when I do work with brands? How’s the fashion component of the DIY Playbook going? … to name a few.
Whether you’re a new blogger or just curious, we thought we would take a break this week to check-in on the business side of blogging. This week we have compiled information on some of these topics into a few posts based on our most frequently asked questions including:
Tuesday: A look at our blog finances, how much money we make, and whether we plan on blogging full-time #whoa
Wednesday: Why it’s important (even though it can be scary) to step in front of the camera as a blogger
Thursday: The tools we use to be as efficient as possible <— An attempt to work smarter, not harder.
Friday: An Introduction to working with brands
Will You Do Us a HUGE Favor First?
Before we get to all of that fun, selfishly we want to start with OUR favorite part of blog week — the survey! Below you will find an anonymous survey that we have created to get to know our audience better so we can understand who you are and what you want to see more (or less of) on the DIY Playbook. One thing this blog has taught us over the past 4.5 years is to have tough skin, so we want you to be honest in your feedback because we know that’s the only way we can improve. So after you get done telling us a little bit about you, we would love to hear your honest feedback about your experience on the DIY Playbook each day. What do you love? What do you hate? What do you want to see more/less of in the future? Heck, how can we be better bloggers?!! We can take it and we can’t wait to hear what you have to say & hopefully adjust on our end to make you love your time here even more!!
We Owe You!
And because we know you are all SO busy, we want to show our appreciation for your time by hosting a giveaway! Please complete the Rafflecopter widget below and you will have the chance to win a $100 Marshall’s gift card. It’s the least we can do to say thank you for being here and thank you for investing your time to help make the DIY Playbook better. Love you guys!!
