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:

2018 Reader Survey + giveaway

Help! I'd love your feedback on my blog. 2018 reader survey on #readersurvey #giveaway

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!

the friday edit + my first Q&A video (including my biggest social media regret!)

Featured Video Play Icon

Happy Friday, you guys! With the 5 Questions challenge floating around on Instagram, I got a new idea: what if I shared a Q&A-style video with questions submitted by you?? This is my first time asking you guys if you wanted me to answer anything and I was blown away by how many questions were sent over… so I will definitely be doing another Q&A video soon. Most of you submitted questions about blogging and social media, so this video is definitely geared toward that. Going forward, I plan to change it up with the topics and answer all types of questions, so if you’ve got ’em, send them in!

Some of the questions I answered this week include…

how I maintain my photoshoot props (and find new ones!)

This post is sponsored by eBay. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting content that keeps Jojotastic going.

I have a confession to make: I’m a hoarder. There, I said it. The truth is that my studio is practically overrun with photoshoot props that I simply no longer use. Recently, I decided it was time for some serious decluttering and went through every. single. one. of my props. One of my ultimate styling tips is to sell the pieces on eBay when I’m through with them to help me recoup those expenses and put the money toward new props. eBay also makes it super easy to list the items and then package and ship each piece. And, again, here’s where eBay really comes into play: it’s my ultimate source for finding new photoshoot props!

Keep reading for tips on how to sell on eBay, details of an awesome giveaway, and tips for finding new styling props.
