Be A Stellar Blogger! + Giveaway

Win a copy of the best blog planner in town!


Introducing the tartelette 2 in bloom palette – featuring 12 brand new, never-before-seen shades.

Hey lovelies! Ok, ao the year end is almost upon us, and with that, my birthday is coming up and I’m super excited. As I reflect, I see how many pitfalls I had this year, and where I could have been a much better blogger, granted I even had the 2014 Blog Calendar by The Native New Yawker, and I still fell off (mostly due to some really crazy life events this year). But it had me think, what does it take to become a better, no, a stellar! blogger? Is it money? Is it fame? Is it some real 24/7 interaction with readers? While all these things will factor in, one good tip I learned from Yuli, is planning is always a big help!

Tip: Be Organized+Keep everything in a planner

I’ll tell you this, mental and physical organization is crucial ins succeeding. In fact, those in this blogging game will tell you, an Editorial Calendar can be somewhat of a lifesaver. When you jot your ideas down, and truly plan out series, ideas and just keep a safe of what you want to accomplish for your blog, trust me, it’s far easier to achieve it, than just silly bantering it around. For next year, I have big plans for you all my loves. Dreams and visions I’ve wanted to implement here on Afroniquely You for a while, I’m finally taking the steps towards them, and I know you’ll love them. I’ll tell you that it will include a whole lot more beyond just hair and natural community. Point is, stay organized and focused because it will help propel you forward! And this is why friends, I am super duper excited that the newest edition of the Blog Action Planner for 2015 is here!! And guess what? You can win it!!!!!! winning!!

  1. Done and done! My goal is to launch a blog with my best friend in February. I want to get back into writing, and share my experiences of the new year in my new city(Atlanta)! This would be PERFECT!

  2. omg I could so use this!!! I let my blogging slide when I got hooked on social media apps. In 2015, I want to spend more time with my first love-my blog. This tool seems like it would be a major asset in getting posts done more effeciantly!!!!

    • Awh, sorry Kim! You can still enter though, the more the merrier right? And no problem about the tips. I look forward to adding a whole new series here shortly to help fellow bloggers and also help me rekindle my blogging fire. And p.s. I’ve been eyeing Whitney’s Day Designer and also the Simplified Planner or getting a KIKKI Planner – but I’m so indecisive on them lol. Glad you love it.

  3. This was a great post! Thank you for offering this giveaway and breaking the 2015 Blog Action Planner down and what it offers. I read about it on another posts and was wondering if it was worth it. Based on your information it definitely is! One of my 2015 goals is to consistently develop and publish new content. And having a planner specifically for blogging is needed for sure! #BLMGirl

    • Yay Ebony!! Glad it was detailed enough to give you perspective. It’s totally an awesome planner. Her 2014 one was really helpful and it also comes with a bonus secret group on fb (last year was on Google plus) with tons of info being passed around. I’d say well worth it! Please feel free to share this post with others so they can enter to win too, or snag the coupon and get theirs right away!
