In the interest of fresh starts, new resolutions, & living your dreams, I’m starting a new series in this new year geared towards getting after it. Week after week, your favorite bloggers & get it girls will be here dishing on their 9-5 routines. From what they do to pay the rent to how they find the time to do it all. Check back every Friday to find more get it girl inspiration.
What was your major in college? Finance! I am old, social media was not a career path back then.
How was your blog born? I wanted a place where I could be creative and share the things that inspire me.
How do you maintain your online presence while at work during the day? Lots of planning, and scheduling posts + social media in advance. It helps that I work in social media, I’m always on so I can reply to my readers throughout the day.
What is your commuting footwear of choice? My Matt Bernson ballet flats
What’s the one item you can’t live without at the office? Post it notes and gum.
If a fire broke out & you could save only your work laptop or your blog laptop, which would you choose? My laptop is actually the same for both… but it wouldn’t really matter because everything BaubleBar is on our server and everything Stripes & Sequins is on Dropbox. I learned the hard way when I doused my old laptop in water by accident!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? With a family and a career. Things change so fast in both blogging and social media that it is hard to say what will happen next. I hope blogs will still be around in 5 years, but you really never know!
What is your favorite way to unwind? With wine and girlfriends, or with a good book and a mug of Ginger Tea.
What time management tip can you give other women that are managing both a 9-5 job & a blog? Spreadsheets are your friend. I have a google doc for my blog that I keep open at work so that I can add my ideas as they come to me. I know it isn’t for everyone but it helps to find a career that compliments your blog… I learn so much working at BB that I have also been able to apply to my blog.
A huge thank you Grace for kicking off this #9to5 series! For more Grace, check out her blog Stripes & Sequins.
