    The Most Annoying Things Bloggers Do On Instagram

    Like I mentioned in my 2018 resolutions post, one of my major priorities this year is getting to know YOU! So one of the first things that I did was create a poll on Instagram Stories asking what you’d like to see more of this year on APOL. And then I got a little crazy. In the last story I asked you to DM me the most annoying things bloggers do on Instagram.

    I went back and forth about asking this question – to be honest, I was a little scared haha. I ultimately decided that yes, I was opening myself up to criticism, BUT I’ve always wanted this blog to be like having an open and honest conversation with friends. So I did it, and guess what?

    You guys BLEW. ME. AWAY.

    Some of the messages had me laughing hysterically, and others had me rethinking the way I look at blogging and content creation.

    Not only did you 100% confirm that I have the nicest readers and Insta fam ever, you gave me genuine, heartfelt feedback that was more than just superficial. You dug deep, and it was SO good that I decided to dedicate a post with the most popular responses. THANK YOU to every person who took the time to share with me and inspire this post!

    How to Battle Your Inner Introvert + Get Past Blah Days

    You might have read the title of today’s post and been like wait what – isn’t blogging the complete opposite of being an introvert? But the truth is most days, I’d pick staying in with a Lifetime movie over heading out to a social event. (I like to blame this on astrology and my dual Gemini personalities!) In many ways, blogging has helped me overcome my urge to be a homebody. And while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being an introvert, staying home can sometimes keep me in “a funk” (for lack of better words). I’m sharing a few ways to battle your inner introvert to get past those blah days!

    How To Balance Business, Relationships and Travel

    I fully believe that travel is one of the few things you can buy yourself that will make you richer. And, I’ve been beyond blessed this year (and last!) with all of the amazing travel opportunities that have come my way! But traveling once or twice a month has taught me the importance of balance and discipline. I’m constantly looking for insight on how to balance business, relationships and travel, and I thought I’d share a few things I’ve learned this year.

    Plus, I get asked a lot about how much I travel without Jordan. It’s especially hard for me to visit all of these amazing destinations and not share it with him – not to mention being away from home so often. S0, I’m talking about how we are making it work in today’s full post.

    Identifying Your Personal Style + How I Found Mine Through Blogging

    In a recent email interview, I was sent a list of questions including one in particular that really made me stop and think. “How would you describe your personal style in three words?” I mean, it’s a pretty straight-forward question that had me scratching my head. What the heck IS my personal style? Shouldn’t I know the answer to this?  I’m sharing how I came up with my three words and how I found my own personal style through blogging in today’s full post. Keep reading for tips on identifying your personal style too!

    Blogger Q&A | Updated 1.23.17

    I recently realized that my Blogger Q&A section of my blog was WAY outdated and basically impossible to find, so my weekend mission was to get this thing whipped into shape. Some of the answers are truly meant for longer blog posts, so I have a plan to get started on those as well for better clarity. BUT in the meantime, if you have any questions for me pertaining to blogging or general life shoot me an email! I’m hoping to get everything answered for you guys and make this page more visible with easier access once questions/answers are updated and added.
