How To Deal With Frustration

How To Deal With Frustration on Waketon Road

There has been so much conversation this week with my #InstaFam about the changes in the Instagram algorithm. My girl Dana of The Champagne Edit even did a post about how she’s adapted to it. I’ve had several conversations with my blogger friends about the changes. We’ve discussed what our strategy going forward should be. Also what seems to be working for other people. But the number one thing that...

Frequently Asked Questions

I was going through some of my DMs on Instagram the other day and realized I have been asked a lot of great questions. Some of the questions were asked multiple times and others were just topics I wanted to share more of. So I decided to change-up today’s format to answer a few frequently asked questions. Being totally honest, I’m not one of those people who get 500 DMs...

Working with Purpose

Work With Purpose on Waketon Road

One of my goals for 2018 is to work with more of a purpose. What I mean by that is that I want there to be a goal or an intention behind my efforts. This is true for every area of my life, professionally, personally, blogging, etc. I felt like last year I stumbled upon a few successes but didn’t really apply myself in the most effective way. 2017 wasn’t...

Self-Promotion: How To Do It Right

Four ways to make "self-promotion" easier on Waketon Road

If you are anything like me, self-promotion is hard. Why is it that we can be the biggest cheerleaders for our friends and family, but when it comes to ourselves we fall flat? I have always believed that hard work pays off. And while I think that’s true, it doesn’t pay off (at least not quickly) when no one knows about the great things you are doing. My struggle with...

Another weekend has come and gone and here I am on a Sunday night wondering what to write about for a Monday morning blog post. Most of the time when I sit down to write a blog post I know what I want to say already. Or at least have an idea. I also try to not make a habit of writing a post the night before. Last week, for...

How To Not Miss An Opportunity

How To Not Miss An Opportunity on Waketon Road

I have been thinking a lot lately about blogging, social media and all of the things that come along with them. I have shared a few thoughts on the blogging industry and what I’ve learned on the blog before. But recently I have to admit I have fallen slightly out of love with blogging. The struggle to compete in a saturated market and the countless hours spent on social media...

A Few Random Things About Me

A Few Random Things About Me on Waketon Road Blog wearing denim dress

It’s been a while since I did an “About Me” post. You can see my last one here and my standing bio here. After my post on Monday about what I would tell my 18-year-old self, it got me thinking about how I’ve changed and in what ways I’ve stayed the same.  So I felt like this was a great opportunity to share a few more random things about me...
