Being creative through DIY projects and blogging is life-giving for me. I’ve been sharing my projects with you for almost four years, and it doesn’t get old.
How do I get paid to be creative and blog? One of my sources of revenue is sponsored posts. A brand, for example, HP, decides to work with me on a blog post where I do what I do best, craft a project for my readers and share how I did my project on the blog inspired by HP.
But you might wonder how did HP find my blog? The answer: Collectively influencer agency. I’ve been working with Collectively for three years, and Collectively has been an integral part of my blogging career, jumping from blogging for joy to blogging for fun and getting compensated for it ;)
For example, one of my favorite projects brought by Collectively is a campaign with “Diamond Foundry.” Diamond Foundry’s brand challenged my photography skills using my camera to take photos of myself wearing Diamond Foundry’s lovely diamond solitaire necklace. Diamond Foundry also inspired me to put together fashion related blog posts and taking the leap to share my interest for fashion with you.
What goes on behind the scenes of a sponsored blog post? When I work with Collectively, they send me a “Creative Brief” outlining the client’s requirements, social media strategy and payment details.
The creative brief describes the message the brand wants to tell through my DIY work and writing. By far Collectively is the most organized and personal agency I’ve worked with during the past three years.
There is a lot of “work” behind a sponsored blog post, but the important part is that when I work with Collectively, my project doesn’t feel like work at all.
Thank you for reading my blog and supporting the brands that enable me to remain inspired with projects that challenge my creativity.
