Hey guys, I am cheating on this blog post and instead of writing up something unique and amazing for you, I am going to give you a list of some great articles and resources I found this week.
The reason is, I'm super busy this week. My startup just got notice that we've been invited for round 2 of the vetting process to be accepted into Matter VC, a venture capital backed accelerator program. We have to crunch this week and get a lot of stuff done for the 3 presentations we need to give them on November 10!!
But not to worry, I've saved 5 useful and interesting articles for you to read about a variety of topics about design, branding, blogging, and social media!
However, these articles are all great resources that I found super interesting and helpful! I'm always on the lookout for good resources, tips and practical advice myself so I am happy to spread it around when I find it.
Here they are - 5 useful and interesting links for blogging, design and social media!
This article goes over what makes a logo good - the way it impacts the brand story, makes a positive impression in our mind, and why some logos are timeless.
I found this article today and It's very in depth! I just started affiliate marketing with Creative Market and Skillshare, two services I love and use. I've made a little income from them, which is a positive encouragement - but I'm always up for more knowledge!
Here's a great mockup and assets freebie list I found on Medium! I'm always looking for mockups to display designs. This list has a bunch of absolutely gorgeous ones ranging from Iphones and Apple watches to beautiful gradients, phone backgrounds, UI kits - all kinds of things!
This is one I'm really interested in! I love communicating with people and I'm really active on my Facebook groups and in the forums on Creative Market. However, I struggle a lot with getting better engagement on Instagram and here on the blog. Lauren always has the best tips and ideas on her blog.
We are all trying to save money! However, sometimes it's better to spend on a useful tool that makes you life so much easier. I personally have a few I can't do without - ConvetKit being one of them. I've gotten to the point in my business where I need to start looking at a few more of Becky's suggestions as well!
I hope you find these articles as interesting as I did! And let me know in comments if you like this kind of post - I read all kinds of articles and blog posts every week, and I'll be happy to share them with you guys!
