how to take a break from blogging (without losing readers)

With the holidays coming up and lots of lovely family time planned, vacations to look forward to, and shopping to do it’s time to start thinking about how to take a break from blogging and how to do it without losing your readers! 1. Schedule new content ahead of time. This is the method I […]

what is your creative space?

Christine Kerr, my lovely instructor over at The Wedding and Events Institute, recently asked me if I’d like to participate in a series she’s doing on her personal blog Scarlet Room. The series involves taking snapshots of “the creative spaces people like yourself work from. This could be an office, a desk tucked away in a […]

13 blogging do’s and don’ts

I often get emails from new bloggers and vendors that I work with asking questions about blogging and I love it! Blogging is clearly a passion of mine and now that Burnett’s Boards is over a year old, and I’ve learned plenty of lessons the hard way – I’d love to share some do’s and […]

And today while you’re reading […]

why I hate the b-word

There is a funny thing that happens to me when asked by random people about what I do for a living. I lie. I lie because I hate telling people that I’m a blogger. Depending on my mood (or how many glasses of wine I’ve had) the lies can get rather extravagant. One time I […]
