Why Blogs Are Still Important in 2017

April 1, 2017

Why Blogs Are Still Important in 2017Hello everyone! I’m so happy it’s the weekend because on Monday, I’m driving to Milan for the Salone del Mobile and to attend other design-related events, cocktail parties, and installations. Not a bad job. This will be my first time visiting Italy so I’m very excited.

Before I hit the road though, I’ve been thinking a lot about blogging and the way content creators are reaching all of you, the loyal audience. I’ve been considering how we work with brands, what we do to get our work out there to expand, or at least become better at what we do. I’ve been thinking about whether blogs are still important.

Why Blogs Are Still Important in 2017 This post is sponsored by Squarespace

I’m asked frequently how I see the future of blogging and if having a blog is relevant with all of the micro blogging platforms and visual content creators out there using platforms like Instagram to grow their brand.

ARE BLOGS STILL IMPORTANT?

Yes.

Here’s why. Blogging has evolved but it has a future just as much as a website and email account both have a future, despite being around forever.

REMEMBER YOUR FIRST EMAIL ACCOUNT?

I created my first email account at Northeastern University in a lab there in 1995 during a marketing class. (Back when marketing classes didn’t even use words like Social Media because none of that existed.)

Do we still use and need email so many years later? Of course. As much? Well, maybe not as much because we can Whatsapp, Snapchat, SMS, or Tweet without sending an email, sure. But email is primarily how we conduct a bulk of our business, especially professionals who have more to say than what can fit into a text message.

That email account was my entry point to the world and I’ll never forget it. When I started blogging in 2006, it was my next big entry point into the online world. It was when I wasn’t just talking to people in email or on forums, but was opening myself up to everyone who potentially visited my site and read my words. It was both exhilarating and terrifying.

Blogging is NO different than having email or a website. It may not be the ONLY way that we can transfer our ideas and opinions to the world, but it’s still how we can present our work in the most personalized and creative way. And the best part is, it’s our own content and we run the show.

A car isn’t the only way we move from point to point. Neither is a train, a boat, bike, a plane or a skateboard. They are all ways to transport ourselves. We had to expect that communicating online would evolve, yet some things don’t need to be reinvented. Like a blog and back to my earlier example, let’s think about the car. It has, and still will continue, to evolve but it doesn’t need to be replaced with a totally new way to move around on land.

Blogs are the same. They are evolving and certainly becoming much more robust, beautiful, user-friendly and savvy but they do not need to be replaced by something totally new because blogs, as a communication channel, work.

YOUR BASE

To me, a blog is the foundation to everything else that you’re doing virtually. You can have Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. but your blog — well that’s YOUR base. Everything links from it. You can be found on search engines. You can use it to showcase your work, tell a story, share videos, podcasts and all sorts of media… It’s robust. You can be super creative with it, from how you format your posts to how you lay out your images, write, or design your blog in general.

Blogging combines your visual content with your voice. It’s where you can communicate with your readers for years and content is archived and can be found again (unlike Facebook content, where you have a great conversation going and a month later, can never find it again).

YOU CAN CREATE A SUBSCRIBER LIST

Also, people enjoy getting emails from brands and people whom they trust, and your blog is where you can still have a subscriber list. These mailing lists are so important because you can reach out personally to people who are asking you to. There are no strange algorithms where only a few people can see your content or worse, it shows up in the wrong order. When you send an email to your mailing list, it reaches your subscribers, period. That is invaluable. By the way, here is a great article sharing how to grow your mailing list that is just brilliant.

REVENUE SOURCE

A blog is also a great space to create content that you can sell. Whether it’s a sponsored or underwritten post, a sponsored video series, e-books you’ve created, other downloadable content for sale, products, services… It’s a terrific space to get it out there and to reach your readers. You can also have your blog link from your website where your portfolio or shop is. It’s better for a reader to get lost on your website than to get lost on Instagram or Facebook, because there, you just lose them to the millions of distractions in their feed.

Your blog is the best way to generate revenue YOUR WAY, because you have total control over how you will present it. You set all of the rules.

LONG FORM CONTENT

Blogs give us the ability to write long form content, like this piece, and I love it! Everything is so quick and fast-paced elsewhere, you don’t really read anymore as a result. We scan. I’ve noticed when I read less, I don’t write as well and I stop learning. Even how I speak changes. My sentences are choppy and short. I’m so busy swiping on my iPhone all day that I sometimes forget how to express myself verbally, how to present clearly how I feel.

Thing is, seeing and scanning content all day isn’t necessarily making us smarter, more emotionally intelligent or creating genuine intimacy or connection between people. Reading does that. Your blog is where you can educate, share, connect and produce more longer form content that reaches others in meaningful ways.

While a picture is said to be worth a thousand words, I can’t really say the content I see on largely visual social platforms of buddha bowls and cute shoes so moving emotionally as a thousand words might be. Let’s face it, a lot of the content we absorb in a day isn’t the stuff made of a thousand words.

Of course, you can find and follow the true photographers creating visual poetry out there and get enormously inspired. However, in all honesty, most of what I’m seeing in my various feeds contain a lot heavily edited glimpses into people’s lives and on sites like Facebook where photos and brief thoughts are posted together, they usually center on the negative – political views and all of the horrible things happening in the world from pollution to crime and racism, and it overwhelms me. I am unfriending or hiding feeds more and more than engaging in meaningful conversations.

I love Instagram and use it multiple times a day in addition to my blog, but “in addition to”. I want the best of both worlds, so I keep my blog while also focusing on my Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and my latest obsession, my LinkedIn account.

When it comes to longer form content, a lot of what is shared on sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Pinterest is linked back to the longer form content on a blog anyway (or a website). Have you noticed this? These sites are linked back somewhere and usually it’s to a website or blog. If you have a blog, you are part of that content still and that is GOOD.

TRUSTWORTHY CONTENT SOURCE

Now more than ever, people are looking for trusted new sources of information. Content providers, through their blogs, have the chance to really meet that need and deliver content in a truthful, trustworthy way that is also fun and can make an impact.

When it comes to a blog, since so many content creators are also using platforms where visual content is king, let’s make blogs the space where educational and inspirational content lives. The space that touches hearts and where hope and guidance can sit. Real discussions on blogs may not take place in the same way as they did before, but on a blog you are still the author. You can write what matters to you. Many people are dying to read something heartfelt from you, I’m sure.

The writers, educators and those looking to go deeper with their audience will stay on board with blogs. Those who want to work more visually, or only visually, will move on to the other platforms suitable to the type of content they want to build. Some use a car, others a bicycle, walk or skateboard to work. In the end, we use what suits us best. The beauty of the internet is that there is something for everyone.

I’m a writer at heart and so using my blog regularly is a form of exercise for me. It helps me to become better at expressing myself. My blog gives me freedom and space to be uniquely me. I can express myself openly and no one can remove a post or edit my work. While other platforms make me better at creating stronger visual content, and I love and use those platforms daily, blogging is THE space where a writer goes to write stuff. That’s ultimately why blogging works for me and will for many years to come. This is why I think blogging is still important: If what you have to say matters, so does your blog, use it and say those things.

What are your thoughts on my words above? I’d love to hear what you think below.

DIY Website in 6 Steps With Squarespace

February 28, 2017

DIY Website in 6 Steps With SquarespaceI’ve been collaborating with Squarespace for years, in fact I remember when they were in beta and we spoke about their exciting new website in 2006. Here I am, 11 years later, and I’m still a fan of their site and what they do. But what exactly DO they do, you may wonder? Well, it’s simple. If you don’t have thousands to spend on a website but you want it to look expensive and gorgeous, you can shop Squarespace for everything from a domain name to a website template and even a logo for your site. It’s easy to pull your entire website together in a day (maybe more if you are a perfectionist like I am). BUT you COULD DIY your own website in 6-8 hours.

Today dear readers, I’m going to walk you through how to create a Squarespace website in 6 Easy Steps. Ready?

1. DOMAIN. Visit Squarespace and if you don’t already have a domain name, search for one to see if what you want is available. You can search at the top of the main page on the site. Need to learn more about domains? Then click here. If the domain you want is not available, they will suggest a list of alternatives. If you don’t need a custom domain name and just want to use the preassigned name from Squarespace or you ALREADY have a domain name and want to use that, no problem because Squarespace now offers domains transfer. Move to the next step.

DIY Website in 6 Steps With Squarespace

2. TEMPLATE. From the main page click on the button far right that says GET STARTED which will bring you to the Choose a Template page. There are many categories along the left sidebar for you to peruse. This step will be where you will spend the most time, because there are many to browse and I’m guessing you will have a few that you won’t be able to decide on in the end. This is where you need to call in a friend OR just close your eyes and pick. Don’t try too hard to have the perfect template right now, as Squarespace puts it, “Pick your template based on how close it is to your ideal website, but don’t worry about an exact match. Your pages, content, fonts, colors, and more can be changed after you sign up.” You may want to write that down so you know what you’re looking for. Big photos, contact page, about page, portfolio, shop, or something else? List it and then look.

3. SIGN UP AND START CREATING. After you find the template (for instance I love the Greenwich and this is one I want to work with for my new website) click on the button in the upper right hand corner when you are viewing the template that says, “Start With This Design”. Then complete the short form and click on “Sign Up + Create Site”. Next you will be asked some questions like, “What is your site for?”, “What is the website about?”, “What are your goals for this site?”, and then you are prompted to fill in the site title.

DIY Website in 6 Steps With Squarespace4. PERSONALIZE. Next, your “new” site will open and this is where you can personalize everything for your own custom website. Along the bottom of the site, you will see a black bar alerting you that you have a free 14 day trial. If you want to actually go beyond that and purchase a package, you can use code DECOR8 for 10% off your first purchase. Okay, so now it’s time to get to work. This is the other step in this 6 step process that will take you the longest but if you are clear as to what you want and work quickly, it may be quite quick. I know what I want so I’m willing to guess this will be a fast step for me. Fast as in, 8 hours max. Trust me, to build and launch a website, that’s lightening speed.

DIY Website in 6 Steps With Squarespace

5. ADD LOGO + IMAGES. Upload or create logos, add your own images to the “gallery” on your site, customize and tweak until you have exactly what you need and like. It’s best to have a folder on your computer that you title “Squarespace” or something so you can drop ALL of the files you put on your Squarespace site in that folder first and then drag and drop. I really like to be organized when working on projects so I have folders for everything.

6. SPELLCHECK, EDIT, GO LIVE. With the design in place and ready to go, edit all of your text, check for spelling errors, and go through the site, page by page, to tweak as needed. Then go live and ask your friends what they think and even share the new site screenshot on your social sites like Instagram. If you do, use hashtag #squarespace so we can see your new site!

SMILE, you did it! Next month, I’ll post again to show you the part two with my shiny new website. Stay tuned!

Take Your Blog & Business to the Next Level e-course

February 18, 2017

I’m excited to announce an e-course like no other that you simply cannot miss… So in case you haven’t enrolled yet, the Blogging Your Way blog boot camp is a must-take! It’s all about taking your blog & business to the next level (or how to start it right if you are brand new). From March 3-20 I’m going to help a small group of you online to build the blog (or Instagram or business) of your dreams, and then how to use it once it has grown… So tell me… Are you in?

Take Your Blog & Business to the Next Level e-course

This class will teach you everything you need to know about profitable BOLD blogging and social media that slays. I’ve been supporting myself financially on my blog since I started in 2006. Yes, that’s ELEVEN YEARS. Talk about business sustainability – I will show you exactly how I did it and how I stay relevant in this ever-changing marketplace year after year. NO SECRETS. Come, learn from me.

Have a blog? Want to start a blog? Have a business you want to promote? Do you need help figuring out how to do something with all of the great fans you’ve amassed? Do you feel stale and in need of inspiration and brand new ways to work online?

This class WILL be a game changer for you.

I will solely teach this class and I will dedicate all of my time and attention for three weeks to ONLY you. This means that you will have direct access daily to talk to me online (except on the weekends) to answer your questions. You can even chat live once weekly with me in our mentor chat and ask any question you’d like and I’ll answer it. One or ten, I’ll answer them all.

This class will be like none before it because we are keeping it small and I’m not scheduling any other work or projects for the full duration so this class is the ONLY thing on my mind which frees me up to shoot above and beyond for my students.

It’s also for all levels but if you are a beginner, please note that we will not teach you HOW to set up a blog. So it’s a good idea to set one up first and then we will teach you what you need to know to get rolling with your blog. And for those of you already blogging, it’s time to up your game!

For more information, click here and SIGN UP because I’m only allowing 50 more students into the class and then that’s it – I’m closing registration. I won’t be doing another class like this until late Fall/early winter this year, so if you want it, come and get it!!!!

Have you ever considered turning your Instagram into a booklet that you can sell in an online shop? Are you just plain curious about how to make your Instagram experience better?

First, meet your teachers. I’ll be involved in the class, naturally. But I’ve invited two shining stars who are professionals at what they do and can really help you.

Next, we have PAULINE EGGE, the author of PETIT PASSPORT and a series of gorgeous travel booklets that she’ll detail in class along with how she monetized her Instagram through the creation of those booklets… Pauline is a photographer and travel writer, a lover of all things pretty and trendy, which she sniffs out as she travels and shares the best of the best on her blog with photos she takes herself – hotels, boutiques, coffee shops… Nothing is out of reach if it brings her joy and is something she knows her readers must absolutely check out. I love Petit Passport, which is why I had to hire her to teach this class with us.

Blog Power e-course – Now Registering

March 16, 2016

Ok so last night, as I spoke before a bunch of mostly tech guys about my pretty, light and bright blog and my all-girl team and how I built my blog from nothing to something quite robust… I felt intimidated, a little nervous and well, quite a fish out of water. I wondered what they thought as I waxed on about my books and showed the pretty covers in my happy slide presentation. I wondered if I was cool enough to present along with others who were there to talk about virtual reality headsets, online insurance portals, travel websites, etc. But like a good girl, I played along and spoke about my work with joy because well, I love what I do. I enjoy spreading a little magic as often and as far as I can. When I throw seeds out there and someone grabs one, grows it, and becomes a successful entrepreneur based off of something I said, that’s my fuel forward. I’m proud of blogging but even more proud that after celebrating my TEN YEAR (!) blog anniversary in January, that I still have passion for this and so many readers popping by regularly to see what we have to show next on decor8. Thanks, guys. I’m honored, flattered, and extremely joyful that I can wake up each day and approach my work with a happy heart. Not all days are sunny, I have some rubbish ones like the rest of us, but all in all my career has made my life better than I had imagined it as a young girl dreaming of my future. I wish I could give everyone with big dreams the courage to go out and make them come true. That is why I started running e-courses exactly 7 years ago this month, to share everything I know, to motivate and to plant seeds of courage. I love to empower others to set their plans into action and to let people know that it is possible to get some, or even all, of what you want. But also the hard reality of it is this: IT IS NOT EASY or OVERNIGHT.

 

Blog Power e-course - Now Registering

After presenting last night, I stepped off stage to a mighty applause. Those guys respected me and were happy I shared my story. Afterwards, they told me so as I collected business cards from men who were so intrigued by my “self made” profession and, that I was a women, was even more interesting to them because the tech world is still largely made up of men. I ended up inspiring a group of people that I never thought I COULD inspire. I only thought fellow bloggers, mostly women, were curious…. But for the first time in many years of speaking about blogging publicly, I spoke before a group of people that I seriously thought would nod off as I spoke. It was quite the opposite. They smiled, they laughed at my corny jokes, they were pleased when I read the titles of my German books in my best German accent, some even whistled. How about that?

When I got home, I thought about the upcoming Blog Power e-course that we just opened for enrollment last night… And how I want to pull 1,000%, my absolute all, into this class like no class before it. I want to do video, more podcasts, try a webcast live, and really TALK to my students and interact in fresh new ways because I need this class as much as my students. Not only was last night a massive lightbulb moment – that people REALLY genuinely are still very interested in blogging, but they want to hear from the success stories and they like knowing that other people are out there making their dreams come true – it’s encouraging – it gives hope and at the end of the day, HOPE is the fire inside that keeps us going, gets us up in the morning, makes us reach a little higher towards the light. HOPE.

A LOT of bloggers are due a little hug right about now, a sign of hope along with a big kick in the pants to wake up and stop feeling so sad about blogging and to appreciate this platform now more than ever. Instagram keeps changing it’s game. Facebook is becomingly increasing more political, depressing, ad driven, a source for finding the depressing news, rants from friends, the next horrible problem… It’s all so bleh. The only things about Facebook that I really like are the Groups and the live videos that you can do if you are a special Facebook member with a blue check near your name. Those are gold and I love the live vids. Pinterest doesn’t really have my attention anymore. Periscope is interesting, but only when you are lucky enough to be awake at the same time as your favorite blogger who happens to be broadcasting live or you catch it before it’s deleted. Snapchat, well, okay that is fine but nothing you can look back on and say, “Look at when I did that!”.

Yet blogs remain.

And they remain the same. No one can come in and change our game (though big companies try) and no one can come in and take away our look and feel, our voice or buy our audience overnight. We run the show. In this sense, blogs are GOLD people. We are IN CONTROL.

It’s time for more blog power.

It’s time to recognize the value we STILL VERY MUCH HAVE as bloggers, as influencers, now more than ever because a blog is still a very powerful, personal, largely independent, massively popular platform. Why not ROCK the hell out of it?

That’s why I decided to title our next three week e-course, BLOG POWER. Because I’m still earning a living from blogging, as are many others, in fact I’m doing better than ever. I have a team of writers now that are doing beautiful work. My readership is growing. I’m seeing more page views now as people are starting to get a little bored again from the other places they’ve been hanging out… And I think that’s a sign that blogs still have clout, are still being read, and some are still very much alive, well and leading the pack.

Blog Power will be lead by me Holly Becker along with Holly Marder from Avenue Lifestyle who is a photographer, stylist and journalist working in the Netherlands, and Irene Hoofs from Bloesem Design which is a blog, a creative studio, shop and workshop and an online gazette. Irene is a real dynamo. We are all working mothers with young children, we all have blogs, and we all are working professionally with clients, on assignments, living as expats in foreign lands, and meeting the challenges of everyday life just like the rest of you.

We know the recipe of how to build an amazing company and earn money doing it, all from our blogs as the base, and we are going to explain how we do it.


Together, we’ll cover:

  • How to find your passions and identify your core skills
  • How to decide how you want to “look” online in two parts: For those new to social media and to all currently branded online looking to change things up.
  • Can you realistically do what you love for a living? We’ll break it down and explore this topic.
  • How do you generate an income when you don’t know what market rates are or even what your work is worth?
  • How to avoid discouragement when growth and engagement isn’t as expected, and then, what to do about it.
  • How to work alone successfully as a freelancer when you only have yourself to learn from and talk to all day…
  • How to stay focused and keep reinventing yourself when you think everyone is already covering what you want to do.
  • The hard stuff: the reality of working for yourself and how to overcome the hurdles and finding success
  • How to balance being a parent while also hoping to start (or keep) your business going
  • How to know which tools to sharpen to become better at what you do
  • Ways to keep your content strong and flowing
  • How to find great stories in everyday life (even if you don’t live in an exciting city!)
  • The future of blogging and social networking in general and what it means for us.
  • Tours of our studios and how we organize things for our small business

… And so much more!

We are hosting this online workshop for only $99 if you register by April 1. After that, the price will be slightly higher, so grab a seat at our special rate. For $99 you cannot afford to miss this class – because we are going to all work very hard with our students to deliver content that will leave you buzzing with motivation, excitement and energy for blogging for months later. It’s going to be a truly powerful three weeks and together, we’re going to show you how to grab hold of your blog power and take what you are doing online – blogging, Instagram, etc. to a whole new level. You don’t have to wonder how the pros are doing it. We’re going to tell you how in only three weeks.

We can’t wait to see you! #bloggingyourway #blogpower
