Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few frequently asked questions about my blog, my life and my work:
I’m coming to San Francisco soon, do you have any recommendations of places to go and things to eat?
Yes! I have a separate page on this topic right here. Short answer: there is so much awesomeness here.
How do you make an income from blogging?
I mostly make my income from collaborations with brands on campaigns, sponsored posts (you can see examples of my sponsored posts here), publisher program consulting, and brand ambassador work. I also sell banners ads on my site with through Federated Media, and work with affiliate programs through Amazon and RewardStyle.
I’d love to blog as a career as well, how should I get started?
It’s taken me a long time to blog professionally and full time, but I love it and feel so lucky that my hobby has turned into a career. I’d recommend you start by investing in your blog as you would any other business, creating excellent content, make meaningful connections with other bloggers, and distributing/engaging/utilizing social media appropriately.
What kind of camera do you use?
I have a Canon 6D and use primarily a 50 mm 1.2 lens as well as a 24-70. If you’re started out, I’d recommend getting a cheaper body, like a Canon Rebel, and investing in a lens like the 50mm 1.4 which is gorgeous.
Can I feature your tutorial or images on my site?
Of course, just please link back to the instructions (don’t post the full instructions on your site), and only use one or two photos from the tutorial pretty please!
