Over the weekend, Leah and I got a rare chance to sit down and do some blog planning IN THE SAME CITY. We took Chris with us to brunch on Friday while EJ was at work and subjected him to re-branding discussion and Bellinis. Sorry, bud.
With LL+CS quickly approaching its first birthday (!), we have decided that it is time to make some changes. More on those later, but I wanted to share what we've been reading lately to get prepared:
Making Mrs. M had an awesome guide to investing in your blog, including what investments are smart and which aren't!
We are just now getting to a level of readership where sponsored posts and guests posts are becoming a reality. You can see our first truly sponsored post here, but I am absolutely loving this advice from Jana of Life Could Be a Dream about Why You Need a Guest Post Policy.
Because we are trying to make some moo-lah here to fund our wine and coffee habits...err, I mean student loans...this oldie but goodie about monetizing from Elisabeth at Bella has been crazy helpful.
Finally, with all of this re-branding, we are thinking about making the Word Press jump. *cue scary suspense music here* Reading through Madison's post, "How to Truncate Blog Posts & Why You Should," on The Wetherills Say I Do has pushed me even further toward making the switch.
Keep an eye out for some fun changes in the next month or so!
