  • Sooo we all agree that even though summer doesn't officially start until June 21, after Memorial Day, it's all the same thing, right? We're curious—any fun trips planned this summer? Our co-founder @victoriamstudio is headed to France in July for a wedding (lucky her!), and co-founder @eembee_ is taking a beach vacay to Florida in June! Share what your summer travel plans are in the comments 🛫 〰️Photo via @ayanagabriellelage, who's making a certain co-founder very excited for Paris. Check out how she's customized our Rania theme at!
  • As anyone who’s ever started a blog knows, it’s nearly impossible to be good at all the skills blogging requires. Writing copy, taking photos, editing photos, creating graphics, managing a website, tweaking code—there’s so much to learn!

Over on our blog, we’re sharing a few considerations and recommendations if you’re thinking about taking a skills class online. Check out the post with the link in our profile!
