When I scroll through Pinterest, I feel like I see the same images over and over again with same titles, but different creators. It can be hard to stand out on Pinterest these days. I want to help you stand out and create eye-catching pins to increase your traffic (and hopefully your income!)
When first starting off a blog, you are going to read 1 million different articles about successful blogging and every single one of them is probably going to say that you need to “find your voice”. Now I know that that’s much easier to say than to actually do.
Blogging really is as much about reading as it is about writing. Whether you are reading your peer’s blogs or reading personal development books, your blog is dependent on your ability to stay relevant and motivated.
I love podcasts. I love the idea that I can go for a walk or take a shower and still use that time for personal development.
Every morning, I wake up and put on a podcast and drag myself out of bed. I find that it puts me in an inspired mindset to start my day. Below, I want to share with you some of the podcasts that I am subscribed to and the pros and cons of each.
I am about two months into starting a blog and I am finding that it is not as easy as everyone tries to make it seem.
I think it is because they just want you to press their affiliate link and purchase site hosting while they get a kickback without you knowing what they are getting into.
I don’t want you to fail, and I definitely don’t want to see you make the same mistakes that I did. I thought I had done enough research, but I am here to help you start your blog and knowing exactly what lies ahead.
While making the first few posts for Milwaukee Millennial, I was trying to make everything informative in order to complete my mission of helping young professionals grow and succeed in business. The content came from combining a lot of random things from Pinterest that I chose my favorites from and put them in an educational format, without using a point of view. The fun I thought I was going to have just didn’t happen and it felt more like I was doing a project for work. From now on, I am going to continue sharing successful business tips for millennials, but I am going to do it MY way and share MY experiences.
I will be updating my About section to reflect my vision better, but in short: I am from Illinois and I moved to Milwaukee over three years ago. I fell in love with this city and I truly feel that young professionals could learn from my experiences and mistakes. I have gone from long distance relationships to tinder dates to moving in with my boyfriend. If anything, I want to share some of the hidden gems of Milwaukee and why everyone should consider moving here. Also, I have found that my mission in life is to help others become successful. I am driven by being a catalyst to a better life. Thank you for taking the time to visit the Milwaukee Millennial.
Big achievements are reserved for people who continually set higher standards for themselves and othersDon’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.Anyone who makes you think you can’t be yourself and be successful is selling you a lie – because its not your story. The most valuable thing you can make is a mistake – you can’t learn anything from being perfect. Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. Millennials don’t just want to read the news anymore. They want to know what they can do about it. There is a desire for change. There is a millennial generation that doesn’t like what they’re seeing, but doesn’t quite know what the solution is.The workplace has become a psychological battlefield and the millennials have the upper hand, because they are tech savvy, with every gadget imaginable almost becoming an extension of their bodies. They multitask, talk, walk, listen and type, and text. And their priorities are simple: they come first.The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you’re not good enough. On occasion, they may be correct. But do not do their job for them. Seek any job, ask anyone out, pursue an goal. Don’t take it personally when they say ‘no’ – they may not be smart enough to say ‘yes.’People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing — that’s why we recommend it daily.
