Yesterday I woke up to the coolest news ever! You know how i made a video post earlier in the month for the LA Blogcademy scholarship? Well, I won!!! I’m so excited because I’ve wanted to attend the Blogcademy for two years now but have never been able to make it happen. I’ve learned so much from studying Gala Darling over the years, she’s a total pro when it comes to blogging and really nailing your personal brand. I first found her when I was toying with the idea of creating this blog and was drawn to her because she spoke about love often. I loved how she painted the picture of friendship through her colorful images with her besties Katt Williams and Shauna Haider.

Since starting my blog I’ve learned so much about what seems to work and what clearly doesn’t. I’d say my greatest frustration has been not having the creative professional team around me to execute some of the visions I have. For instance, I always have photo ideas that would require me in the photos but I don’t have a photographer that I work with that has similar vision or knows how to shoot me. I also have ideas for short videos to build my youtube channel but I don’t have the pro lighting or editing tools and abilities to create the videos I have in my head.
So I’m really looking forward to hearing what they have to say about all of that. I’ve certainly done what I can (or know to do), but it’s time to take the next step.
