What a difference a week can make.
I can't even tell you how much my energy has been restored after last week's blogging break and my head is absolutely spinning (in a good way) with all the amazing content I have in store for you guys. Good things are on their way. I'm feeling especially grateful as I write this post for the astoundingly positive reaction I've received both here in Australia and in the US to this column. We've been so lucky to have such talented and generous ladies here each week sharing their tips and advice and I have so enjoyed getting a glimpse into their creative process. This week is no exception.
Have you ever looked at a blog and immediately wanted to pin everything you see? That's kind of how I feel every time I look at Breanna Rose's blog, I'm Breanna Rose. A visual feast and magnet for any design lover, Breanna shares not only gorgeous images but solid, shareable business advice and support for freelancers. Whenever I need a visual pick me up or sound advice I head over to her blog and have never been disappointed - add her to your reading list, you'll thank me later.
Thanks Breanna for sharing your blog tips (and gorgeous images!) with us....

Best piece of advice to a newbie blogger?
It seems like everybody has a blog nowadays, so it's important to always be yourself and not somebody else. Create your own formula for success, otherwise it's already been done.
If I wasn't blogging I'd be...
Without a lot of great friendships I've created over the past three years. Needless to say, I'm so thankful for the opportunity + relationships the blogging world has created for me.
Behind the scenes of my blog looks like...
A routine. Week by week, I plan everything out and am very repetitive in terms of when I prep everything and how it all gets organized for scheduling.
In 2014 I'm most excited about ...
The launch of my new design studio and later, the release of an online freelancing workshop I'm working hard on with a good friend of mine. It's going to be the biggest year yet!
