Decor8 blog's class so enlightening. I have been instructed by Holly and other fabulous guest teachers such as Jeanette Lunde of Fryd and Design. Without her inspiration, I probably would never have considered and e-magazine (which I now am!). Also, I was already a huge fan of Nicole Bach of Making It Lovely, who showed me how to find balance in work and life and how to grow your blog and possibly make income from it (I hope to one day, thank to my supportive readers!). Katrina Tan of the Pugly Pixel showed so many creative ways to feature photos in more interesting formats. I will definitely start to practice these tips and integrate them into my blog.
Since my blog is largely visually based, I found a great benefit from these photo teachings. I especially enjoyed Holly sharing some of her favorite photo apps for my iPhone that I have already started to use. One of these apps is instagram, which I have been using for a while but not really for my blog. I love the effects that you can do to the photos right off your phone to enhance them.

Bottom line, I loved this class and would recommend it to anyone wanting to blog. It has a great support community as well and I look forword t contiuing to get to know the other bloggers in the class. I will soon be sharing a few new favorite blogs of mine that have come out of the class.
