What I've Learned From The Consistent Canva Course

*I was chosen to be a beta tester for Lindsey's e-course "Consistent Canva" course. I took this course beginning to end and all opinions are 100% my own. This post will be updated as new information about the course becomes available. As of right now, you can sign up for early notification and early bird pricing which I 100% recommend! 

Hey hey!

Today, I wanted to share with you why I believe every blogger should take the Consistent Canva e-course from Lindsey of Hazel Haven! So, Canva is a free design software, hosted on canva.com so there is no program for you to download. It is based in Australia {which is something I always forget} and has an amazing team behind them. Although Canva is free, which is all you need for this course, there is also Canva for Work, which is what I use. The price for Canva for Work is $9.95/month paid annually or $12.95/month paid monthly. I love Canva, I even wrote about why you should be using Canva for your blog post graphics. Now, I want to share why you need to take this course!

The Secrets Behind The Success of The Young Hopeful

Happy Wednesday!

Today I'm doing things a little differently on the blog. I wanted to share with you a guest post, which is not something that happens often here on Creatively Lauren. Today, I'm sharing a post written by Hope Young, founder of The Young Hopeful. She crafted this post detailing how she grew her little blog into a major hit in a year! I've watched Hope grow TYH, and even been a part of it, from when it was just a little college blog. I'm so proud of Hope and what she has done with her site. So after y'all read this, you need to go to her site and see what she has to offer! She is awesome, y'all will love her! So let's get to her secrets!!

How to Combat Senioritis

Happy Tuesday!

I hope y'all had a great weekend. It may be the middle of summer but I know that some students will be starting {or finishing} their senior year of college. With that exciting fact, comes the not-so-exciting issue of senioritis. Bleh! Senioritis is something that can get the best of students, but there are ways to combat it, you just have to keep at it for the year!

Blog Traffic Report | June

Happy Wednesday!

We are already halfway through 2016! Can you believe it? Since June is over, it is time to share my blogging statistics from the past month! This month, I will admit I slacked a lot. I feel really bad about it. With the start of the second half of 2016, I'm looking to ramp back into high gear and get things off the ground!

Web Development and Design: Final Update

Happy Wednesday!

I have made it through my six weeks of class and I have come through on the other side! I'm so happy I've made it through, but I'm actually pretty bummed that it's already over! So I wanted to do a final update/check in and show you guys the final product of my web development and design class. I'm so proud of this project, however; I do hope to make it even better than it already is. Beware, this will probably be a long post because of all of the screenshots. I hope you like my site!

Why I Quit My Honors Program

Happy Friday!

Today I wanted to talk about something that I have wanted to share for awhile. At the beginning of the year, if you follow me on Twitter, I was talking about quitting my honors program, but I was on the fence about it. Basically, I didn't know if I wanted to continue to struggle and be miserable, or drop that part of my college experience and be free to be happy. Well, if you read the title of this post, it is clear that I did that latter. I wanted to explain why in case anyone else is feeling the way I felt and doesn't know where to go next.

Why Creativity is Important in Today's Society

Happy Friday!

I hope you have had a wonderful week! This is the first week in a really long time that I'm posting three days a week! It feels so awesome to be on somewhat of a "track" again. This week was pretty good; I really am trying to find a way to get my creative juices flowing. Since I have been having some trouble with my creativity, I figured that I could write a post on why creativity is important in today's society!

Web Development and Design Class Update: Halfway Point

Happy Wednesday!

I'm already halfway done with my web development and design course! Yup, I'm already three weeks in! I'm really enjoying the class, I've definitely learned a lot so far! I've even began to play around in Blogger's custom CSS spot in my template. The only downside is that I'm learning CSS3, the most advanced and up-to-date, so some things I learn in class don't translate well, if at all, to Blogger. Regardless, here is how I have done this first half!

Blog Traffic Report | May

Happy Monday!

I know I haven't been on the blog in a hot minute, last week I was busy with fun and a family visit! I went with Matt and another coworker to Redmond, Washington on our new route. Thursday I flew to L.A. and went to my little brother's high school graduation! Wait, WHAT?! Yup! My little brother is not so little! Then Friday, I flew back to Phoenix and then went to work! So I've been quite exhausted! However, with a new month, it is time for another blog traffic report! So let's get to the good part!
