Build a better blogger: Gift Ideas for the Blogger in your Life6:00:00 AM
If you have a blogger or other creative on your Christmas
list, you may be wondering what on earth to get for them. Let me tell you, no
matter what niche a blogger is in, they have a wish list that will help their
blogs get better over the next year. There are classes, equipment, and food for
the soul that will help them rest. You may wonder if I have experience with
these items...Every single one of these items are either on my Christmas list
or I have used myself!
This photography course is perfect for visual learners. Each lesson is a video! It goes step by step into how to improve your photography. You gain lifetime access to the course content, so you can always go back and review.
If you want to learn how to brainstorm content, this self-paced course is for you. You will generate loads of content ideas. One of my goals is to go back through this course and get ahead in my content next year!
For many bloggers, pinterest drives a huge amount of traffic to their blogs. If you want to learn how to take pinterest to the next level and learn what works and doesn't work for this social media giant, this class is for you!
When you're on the go, no one wants your smart phone to die! A backup battery can fit in your purse or your pocket, and keep your connection with social media.
I made this one for the blog conference I went to this summer. It is an easy sewing project – if you can sew a straight line, you can make this for a blogger (and maybe one for yourself, too!)
Let's face it, photography has become a big part of blogging. Here's a camera lens that will help you get that fun bokeh (that's photography talk for blurry background with a sharp foreground).
I want this case to tote around my camera when I'm on the go. I've found that kit bags are too big. A friend of mine has this case and it is the perfect size. It's on my Christmas list (hint, hint to family members reading this)
My old strap is falling apart, and I don't want to use the nikon one that came with my camera. I think a camera strap adds personality and fun to photography, don't you?
Food for the soul
Everyone needs a break. I have started to enjoy coloring again. My girls love coloring with me, too, and it's a past time that needs little prep!
Sweet Tea Retreats
If the blogger is looking for a retreat where instead of adding to their to-do list, they get stuff done? Sweet Tea Retreats is a new style of retreat for bloggers in the mountains of Georgia that promises just that. I haven't done this one, but I really, really want to! Everything except travel is included, too, which makes this a really good deal!
