AUGUST Q&A: CAREER, SELF-CARE AND BLOGGER LIFE

September 1, 2021 in General

Happy hump day, Queens! I don’t know about you wonderful ladies, but I am looking forward to the long weekend. 

This month’s Q&A was amazing, for lack of better words. You guys asked me questions about content creating, Instagram usage, blogging, and therapy/life in general. Although you guys always ask me questions about these topics, the questions were a little different this time around, and I like that. 

Below are the questions and answers. Please note that they are not answered in any order. Let’s dig in, lol.

Question: How do you manage blogging, family, and career? Are you a full-time blogger?

 Answer: Blogging is my second full time job. I work as a Business Analyst for a consulting firm. I have realized that working becomes fun and easy when you’re doing something that you love. If you are good at art and craft, and you make jewelry in your free time, it’s fun, right? You make time for it, right? Well, that is blogging for me. I love this job, I get to connect with lots of incredible women, and on top, I get some of the best DM from you ladies. Therefore, I can do everything that is on my plate, blogging, family, and career. I love all of them equally; therefore, I make time for all of them. You might say it’s easier said than done, but once you start and become disciplined, “NOT MOTIVATED,” you will understand what I mean. 

Question: Do you think we should all be in therapy? If so, are you in therapy or not? Why not? (Please note that this was a question from me to you guys; however, I included it in the Q&A for this month because I enjoyed reading you guys’ responses)

Answer: “Yes, because we all need to vent and heal with an unbiased opinion.” I stand by this response. In my book, we should all be in therapy. Stop discussing your trauma or pains with your family, friends, husbands, or best friend. Trust me, most of those people speak ill behind your back, and the one you think would keep your secret might not. In my opinion, a therapist is licensed and trained to help you unpack those traumas or hurt you need to recover from. 

Question: Do you think we should all be in therapy? If so, are you in therapy or not? Why not? (Please note that this was a question from me to you guys; however, I included it in the Q&A for this month because I enjoyed reading you guys’ responses)

Answer: Yes, everybody needs therapy, even if a person doesn’t have trauma. 

Question: How do you plan your outfits. 

Answer: I start with a theme. Do I want a black and white theme? Vacation? African fashion? Fall fashion? How to? Etc. Once I decide on the theme, I create a mood board on Pinterest and a folder on Instagram. I go about my day looking at feeds and photos. I save those photos that spike my interest. Same for Pinterest. I also shop my closet a lot. Based on the theme of my shoot, I look in my closet for pieces that I can style. If I need to buy new pieces to add on, I do that as well. Next, I write on the note app on my phone the pieces I would like to style from my closet. The night before the shoot, I create what I call a “Final Cut” list. This is when I try on the looks and accessories (See screen below for a final cut list). This process usually takes me two weeks. Remember, I also shoot every two weeks, so it gives me time to create the looks. This final cut list also helps me during my shoot. I also send the list to my photographer to be aware of the number of looks we’re shooting that day. 

Question: Do you think we should all be in therapy? If so, are you in therapy or not? Why not? (Please note that this was a question from me to you guys; however, I included it in the Q&A for this month because I enjoyed reading you guys’ responses)

Answer: “Yes, I do. I have lost so many people to death. Today marks 13 years since I lost my mom”. I am genuinely sorry for your loss, sis. I pray that God heals your broken heart and uses your therapist accordingly to help you heal – Amen.

Question: How do you batch content create?

 Answer: What has worked for me is shooting 8-9 looks at once and creating 4-5 videos. Since I post daily and shoot twice a week, this amount of content will last me for that two weeks, sometimes more. I also re-purpose content and shoot from different angles (shot and full body) to use those same content twice. Lastly, I edit photos and write captions on Sundays. I also create content for an entire week. So, when I am editing and writing captions on Sunday’s they are for the whole week. As for now, I don’t auto-schedule Instagram or the blog post; however, I do plan to do that someday. Right now, I only auto-schedule my Reward Style posts. 

Question: What made you re-post your viral reel?

Answer: I created a blog post on how to identify and dress your body type. Since I am more of a visual learner, I thought it would be a good idea to create a video that helps explain that blog post for visual learners like myself. Luckily for me, I had that video from back in April, so I went ahead and re-purpose that video. As faith could have it, many people liked it. Don’t sleep on your content. Repost them; remember your audience is growing daily. The amount you had six months ago is not the same anymore. If you believe that content from six months ago will benefit your added audience now, re-post them. 

Question: How do you make sure your account reaches many people? 

Answer: Hashtags have not worked for me in a while now, so I can’t speak on it; however, what has worked for me is creating educational, relatable, and eye-catching content that moves people to reshare with their audience. The more people share your work, and others see/engage with it; Instagram also moves it to many people. This is what has worked for me.

Question: How do you stay consistent?

Answer: I promised myself to give blogging my all, and that is what I’m doing. It gets hard at times. Some days I am not motivated to do the work; however, I have become disciplined. I must show up daily. I also love connecting and chatting with you queens, which has also helped me stay consistent. 

That’s it for today, queens, see you next time. 

Xoxo, Mo!
