Aside from decor-related questions, I am most frequently asked questions about how I run my blog and small business. I’ve been blogging for over 10 years (wow) and working for myself for about 6. So I really understand how daunting it can feel to start your own business. Today, I partnered with The Hartford to answer your questions about how I run a successful blog, the tools I use, and more about their solutions which can be tailored for your small business.
After launching the Jojotastic School of Social Media a few months ago, I received some resounding feedback: make an online version! Well, I am here today to tell you that I am! I am currently building a 80+ page + video self-led course that will take your through the ins and outs of how I run my social media channels, the tools I use, how to reach analytics, and everything else in between. This will be the definitive guide for social media for small businesses with tips and tricks that I use on a daily basis.
The Jojotastic School of Social Media for Small Businesses — the ONLINE version!
My goal was to launch it in September, but my unexpected hospitalization put that on hold! I still have a little bit of tweaking to do to the curriculum, so in the meantime, sign up here to be the first to find out when it launches!
And if you have any questions in the meantime, let me know by leaving a comment on this post or emailing me. I shared an FAQ post about the in-person version of my social media for small businesses class a while ago, so that is a good place to start, too. This course and topic is something I’m so passionate about and I cannot wait to share allll of my small business + social media secrets with you.
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.
