Even On Cloudy Days - A Glossier Invisible Shield Review

glossier invisible shield review spf 35.jpg

Do you wear SPF every day? Do you wear it when its cloudy outside?

If you would have asked me those questions a while ago I would've answered no to both questions. I understand that its important to wear SPF everyday and even when its cloudy but, it can be hard to find a good product that works well and won't irritate my skin! Well, enter Glossier's Invisible Shield with SPF 35. This little guy has entered my morning routine and doesn't plan on leaving any time soon! 

 

Packaging: The packaging was a little smaller than what I had envisioned containing only 1 oz of product. But, a little product does go a long way. I love the pop of yellow on the cap and the bright bold letters on the side displaying SPF 35! 

Color and scent: The sunscreen is a clear gel and does not leave an overcast on the skin! The smell is very refreshing but not over powering! 

Application: I apply it every morning with my fingers and love how quickly it absorbs into my skin. It does not leave a greasy residue like some sunscreens tend to do! I use a small pump on my face and then a small pump for my neck and chest area! You have to make sure you cover that area too! 

Price: This little guy is only $25 - you can click HERE for 10% off. 

The Invisible Shield has not irritated my very sensitive skin and has not caused any breakouts! Like I mentioned above, it absorbs quickly so you can apply your makeup on top right away!

How To Make Your Blog Pinterest Ready And Get More Traffic Using SEO Keywords

Hello, my friends!! Today we're going to talk a little bit about SEO, how to make your blog Pinterest friendly (and just about every other platform) and how you can get the most traffic to your blog when you implement these techniques to your posts. Let's get started!

What is SEO? Why is it so important for my blog?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is the process of getting traffic to your blog from search engines such as Google. It basically means that you use specific keywords throughout your blog so that when your audience searches for something your blog will be one of the top choices. This is the number one way to grow your blog organically. 

Using the right keywords throughout your blog posts and titles is a sure way to get your blog noticed by millions of searchers worldwide. For example, if you are a food blogger you might want to add words like 'quick, easy, simple' through out your blog if you are sharing an easy dish to make. Whatever it is you are sharing make sure to add as many keywords as you possibly can without over repeating yourself and sounding like a broken record. 

How and where to add keywords:

Like I mentioned above, add keywords just about anywhere you can. You want to have a catchy title but, you can't forget about your keywords. Think about what your readers are searching for. Head over to your search engine of choice and start searching for blog topics on your niche that will give you an idea of what people are searching for. 

Here's an example:

Now, here's the tip you've been waiting for!

Ok, by now I am sure you all know that you need to use bright color images, catchy titles, and long vertical images on Pinterest right? Well, what about when you share your posts and forget to write a description? Ever noticed that when you share any image onto Pinterest the image name will pop up? Well, the days of 0001111.jpeg are behind you my friend! You are now going to change EVERY image name before uploading to your blog posts.

Do you ever search for 0001111.jpeg? Do you think any of your readers ever do? NO! Of course not! You see, SEO keywords are to be added in EVERY little corner of your blog and blogposts. THIS is how you are going to be found on Pinterest and on any search engine. 

This is also a way to get better descriptions when your readers share your blog posts. Instead of it being blank or having 948384899.jpeg as a description you now have full control of what that description will say. Sometimes we are in such a hurry that we forget to change our pin descriptions so, that means your readers sometimes forget as well (or don't even think about doing so). Now, you have made things easy for them and especially yourself. Your blog will grow organically and tremendously by using SEO keywords properly. 

That is it! A simple tip like that will change the way your blog gets traffic. So, go ahead and rename all of the images on past blog posts and watch your blog grow organically!

How To Explode Your Blog's Revenue In 5 Simple Steps

how to make money blogging .jpg

So, you want to grow your small hobby blog into a business blog? Well, today we are going to talk about the five simple steps you can take to make sure you get the most out of your blog and potentially explode your blog's revenue. Bloggers make money through ads, affiliate links, and sponsorships but, if you want to take your income to the next level you'll want to start creating your own products! 

Email list

First and foremost you will want to create an email list.Why? Because that is going to be the easiest and quickest way you will communicate with your readers. Once you start getting subscribers you will want to talk to your readers by sending frequent emails and start growing trust.

There are many email providers out there and you want to look at your budget and try to chose what's best for you! But, I really recommend ConvertKit because it was made by a blogger for bloggers so it's a service that really understands all of your needs. It is so easy to use and only costs $29/month. If you have just started out you may think that $29/month is a bit much but trust me when it comes to growing your email list you are going to want to invest in it because I know it will pay off in the end!

Just think about Twitter or Instagram crashing, how are you going to connect with your audience? You want to make sure you have a good email provider to send your readers updates without worrying about another website crashing.

Create a product

Start creating your product. This can be an e-course, e-book, workbook, video series, etc... Whatever you create though you will want to share your best content. If you have a passion about something then I recommend you spend some time and try to turn it into something you can sell to your readers. Don't just throw something together and try to sell it because you won't get the results you're looking for! You need to really sit down and think about what it is you want to sell and how you can turn that into either an online product or a tangible product.

Promote

Promote your product to your social media platform of choice. I personally enjoy using Twitter because I can share it with my followers and also promote it on 'retweet' pages getting more eyes on my tweet, therefore, more traffic to my product(s). Choose a couple of platforms and promote, promote, promote!

You can purchase ads but, I suggest self-promoting for a while and if you absolutely need too then move on to paid ads. Focus on promoting on your social media platform(s) of choice and also on your blog! Write blog posts and incorporate your product into your blog.

Share it on Pinterest

Share the heck out of it on Pinterest. Share it on your own profile and also on group boards. This doesn't mean spam Pinterest Group Boards with your product but seriously share it as much as you possibly can. Make sure to use keywords and titles that stand out! Oh, and don't forget about the images you will want to create images that pop! 

Don't be afraid to ask your audience to share your product

Don't be afraid to ask your buyers or audience that share your product to their friends and family. Maybe offer them an affiliate link or a freebie and make sure to thank them if they do so! You can send them emails asking them to share or ask them on social media. Whatever route you choose you need to make sure to be professional and to thank them for sharing your product(s).  

 

 

Well, I hope you're brainstorming right now and are thinking of how you can start making money with your blog today!
