Holiday Wishlist 2016

It's December and that means that it is time to share my Christmas Wishlist! I don't know why, but I don't really know what I want, and no matter how hard I try I can't seem to really think of anything, except clothes. Can I just go back to wanting a bunch of toys?

Life Update November 2016

Hey guys!

Wow, it has been a hot minute since I wrote a blog post, and I'm so sorry for that. At the beginning of October, things were really starting to pick up with school, and although I was confident in once a week postings, I was still struggling to come up with quality content. Taking one week off turned into taking two weeks off, and school continued to pick up. I'm glad I've been able to take a break because I've really been able to focus on school, which is what I will continue to do for the next couple of weeks, but after that I will be jumping right back at it!

Blog Traffic Report | September 2016

Hey there! It's already the beginning of October and that means that it's time for another blog traffic report! Every month I share my traffic stats to show what my numbers are, how I use social media to drive traffic to my blog and to share that it's okay to have lower numbers. Many traffic reports show these big numbers and make newer bloggers feel disappointed about their numbers. Remember, it's not always about the numbers. You can have lower numbers but a tight-knit community. Stop comparing, and do you!

Learn to Manage Your Time Management Skills

Hey hey! I want to talk about something that isn't really talked about much in college but is something that you need to learn before you graduate. That my friend is time management. Time management is something that will help you succeed in your academic and professional career. It is also something that you should begin to train yourself on as quickly as possible.

Why You Should Take Advantage of Your School's Health Services

Hey, friends! I want to share with you something that I believe is vastly overlooked when it comes to college life, healthcare. When searching for posts on college when I first began, I rarely saw posts on going to the doctor while away at college. That could partly be because when you first start college, you go back home more often so you see the doctor when you go home. However, what happens when something happens mid-semester? Or, when you don't go back home as often and need to see the doctor for a regular checkup? You'll most likely go and visit your school's health services.

How to Combat Impostor Syndrome

Hey friends! I wanted to talk about something that was brought to my attention by a fellow blogger that I have admired since the beginning of my blogging journey. I'm not going to share her name, but I remember I posted something in a group and she had mentioned that she currently battles "Impostor Syndrome". Now, I was surprised, she's an established college blogger and loves what she does, yet she is afraid of being found out as a fraud. She's not the only one, many, many bloggers face this fear.

Blog Traffic Report | August 2016

Hey, there friends! With another month gone by, it is time for another monthly traffic report! I share my traffic report because I want to share my numbers, and how I use certain social media platforms to drive traffic to my blog. Now, I also want to share that traffic is not the end-all-be-all by any means. You can have lower numbers, but also have a tight-knit community of loyal readers that support you. However, I know that when many are beginning, bloggers are focused on their numbers. I want to share that low numbers does not mean low success!

Build Your Own Blogger Blog Email Course

Here we go, it's finally here! I'm so excited that Build Your Own Blogger Blog is finally here!

Now, that can be the hard part, setting it up. This is where the awesome thing comes in! I have created a free five-day email course called Build Your Own Blogger Blog!

Why You Should Visit Career Services as a Freshman

So, we all know that the main reason people go to college is so that they can land their "dream job/career". Which is true. We go to college so we can learn the skills and knowledge needed to get us on our way {because we do not know everything about our career when we graduate. That's when the real learning begins}. In today's society, it's not enough to have just a Bachelor's degree anymore, employers are looking for more. This is where career services comes in.

How I Use Google and IFTTT to Automate My Social Media

Being a full-time student, part-time worker, and blogger means that my time is stretched in many different directions, and that means that when I'm working on Creatively Lauren, I can only focus on tasks that are really going to help advance my blog and achieve my goals. Let me tell you, scheduling social media posts is NOT one of the things that I have time to spend doing. That is why I learned how to use IFTTT {If This, Then That} and Google Calendar.
