Adobe Photoshop: So I've used Photoshop before blogging, but I never stuck with it because it was just for class. Now I can't see my life without it and don't mind making a payment every month. I make all my Pinterest images, collages, illustrations (along with Illustrator) and quotes with this awesome program. Now I can confidently show my skills when interviewing for a position. It has stepped up the quality of my images and helped my overall design.
Social Media Management: Maintaining a social media presence across multiple platforms is exhausting for one person. Thankfully there are so many tools to make it easier. I've used Hootsuite, Buffer, Planoly and so much more. A lot of marketing jobs list this as a skill and thanks to blogging, I'm confident while using these services. I've also learned what time is best to post on each platform.
Branding: Your brand is everything you want people to associate with you. My brand is all about creativity and I love inspiring others. I want to attract readers that share this same passion which is why I show this throughout my blog. This sets the tone for what brand and networking opportunities will reach out to me. It took me awhile to figure this out, but now when I post, I genuinely feel connected to my content and readers.What skills have you learned from blogging?
Have a wonderful day!
