In case you missed the news last week, I launched a new venture: The Jojotastic School of Social Media! I’ve been working with a coach for a few months now and she’s helped me to make sense of where I want to take my business. Can you believe I’ve been blogging for over 10 years?? I’ve been feeling like I need more meaning to my days and one thing that I’ve always been passionate about is sharing. Launching a social media class helps me take what I’ve spent all these years learning and share it with small businesses! I’m so excited.

Every time I ask on Instagram for submissions for these Q&A posts, I get questions about my blogging career and how I got to this stage. Sometimes the questions about how I got started, the ins and outs of managing my business, and so forth. I always try to answer every DM, but sometimes I end up answering the same questions over and over! It’s definitely time to answer the questions I get asked the most often in one place. Maybe you’ll even learn more about me and my career path, too!
Two years ago, I started the practice of sharing some of the feedback I have received during my annual reader survey. At the core of my mission for this blog is to always be open, honest, and totally authentic with you. This is why writing this post is sometimes the hardest one I’ll write, but also so valuable. I simply want the blog to be the best possible resource for you! So without further ado, let’s dig into this year’s reader survey results.
It’s that time of the year again… the official 2019 Jojotastic Blog Reader Survey! I think this is my 4th year doing this and every year it’s more helpful than I can even imagine. It’s like a performance review — ha! Plus, I also love sharing the feedback you give me. You can see last year’s feedback here.
If you’re new to my blog, basically I conduct an annual reader survey. This helps me to make the blog even more of a resource for you, improves what I post to social media, and even inspires new topics that I discuss. And I really do take all of your feedback to heart. After receiving all of the results, I always pour over the comments, then adjust my editorial calendar throughout the course of the year based on them. If you submitted a response in the past few years, I hope you’ve noticed that your feedback has been taken into consideration! I really do try my best. And also, thank you so much for taking the time to do this — it really does mean a lot to me and my business.
I’ve been eagerly waiting to share this bloopers post alllll year long! That’s right, today’s post is a behind the scenes peek into all the silliness of running the different facets of my business. If you’re new to the blog, this is a tradition that I started two years ago and it’s just sort of stuck. You can catch up on 2016 and 2017, respectively. Let’s dig in to all the random photos I could dig up from styling, blogging, and general creative business shenanigans, bloopers style.

I am definitely what you would consider a workaholic. I am really, really lucky — I love what I do and I am able to dedicate a lot of time and energy to it. The challenge with working for yourself, though, is the possibility of creative burnout, something I have struggled with in the past. Long hours don’t always equal lots of inspiration. I’ve worked for myself for 4 years, so by now I know what helps me maintain my creativity and stay inspired. One thing that will always inspire me is working in a space that smells great. Today I partnered with Air Wick® to share how fragrance inspires my creativity, especially with their new:
It’s that time of the year again… the official 2018 Jojotastic reader survey! If you’re new to the site, I love asking you guys for feedback every year because it helps me to make the blogger even more of a resource for you, a place you want to visit that inspires you every day. Last year I even shared some of your insights because they were so meaningful and impactful for me. After receiving your survey results, I always review them and make changes throughout the course of the year based on them. If you submitted a response in the past few years, I hope you’ve noticed that your feedback has been taken into consideration! And also, thank you so much for taking the time to do this — it really does mean a lot to me!
