I hope you had a relaxing and wonderful Christmas and New Years. My husband and I were able to spend time with both our families which is as good as it gets. :)
I’m excited to finally share this shoot with Dallas blogger Lee Cordon. Lee blogs at Do Say Give and shares extremely helpful advice on gift ideas, etiquette and how to do, say and give more graciously.
She’s one of the sweetest people and I’m impressed with how she’s making people’s lives better through her blog.
- Incorporate a prop, gifts or item of clothing that has meaning to you and tell a story or share advice within your style post. For example, during this shoot Lee incorporated beautiful wrapping paper she was planning to use for Christmas and where her readers could find it.
- Think about a place in your area that has meaning to you, or somewhere that’s made a big difference in your life. Share the history behind it if it’s relevant to your audience.
- Give your readers a call to action at the end of your blog post — something they can implement immediately in their lives to make it better. Challenge them to do something differently in their business or life in general. For example, I remember reading another one of Lee’s posts and thinking, “Ok good, I’m not the only person who feels this way!” And then I took her advice and it made my day less stressful.
“I was accepted into rewardStyle! I could not have done it without your beautiful and professional photos on my blog.
Thank you for helping me reach my goal.”
