What's been your biggest blogging success?
My biggest blogging success has come from pursuing brands that I knew I would love to work with, and then not only getting them to collaborate with me, but also having them pay me on top of that! Getting to work with sports teams like the Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys were my number one goal when I started blogging, and I accomplished that goal.
What's your best tip for bloggers who want to succeed online?
Go out and get what you want. Don't wait for companies to come knocking on your door.
What's the best way to connect with other bloggers?
My favorite way to connect with other bloggers is over Instagram and Snapchat. A person's instagram page let's you see their most creative side, where a blogger's snapchat allows a real, genuine glimpse into what their life is really like.
What's your best tip for productivity?
The best way for me to be productive is to go out looking for inspiration. If I'm in a graphic design rut for example, I'll log on to Pinterest and just spend and an hour searching the design section until I'm motivated and inspired to make my own.
