Budgeting is… not the most fun thing to do. But that doesn’t mean it’s unimportant. In fact, it’s one of the most important things you can do!
So, where the heck are you supposed to start? Let’s walk through every step of the budgeting process. (Oh, and don’t forget to download your free spreadsheet so you can track your budget and spending habits!)

As I’ve discussed before, InDesign has so many awesome tools available to you.
It took me a little bit of time to get used to everything and figure out what tools I use the most often. But how that I know what those tools are, I want them easily accessible!
So, how can we do that? Luckily, it’s super easy!
When I first started blogging, I didn’t understand the need for an email list. My blog was just a hobby, and I didn’t really care if I made any money of it.
Well, I still moderately feel that way (I don’t want to have any ads on my site, for example), but I’ve changed my outlook on email lists.
After all, one of my main goals with my blog is to help make the intimidating aspects of blogging and design easy to digest. If I’m not getting my content out there… I’m not really helping anyone, am I?
I set to work on growing my email list using popups, subscription forms in my sidebar, you name it.
But my email list wasn’t growing.
What’s a girl to do? Easy: content upgrades.

When I first started blogging, I was a bit overwhelmed by all of WordPress’s features.
Pages vs. posts is pretty obvious, but categories and tags… what’s the difference? What do you use them each for?
When I first tried to organize my blog, I was using about seven or eight categories (which is a problem in and of itself) to organize the general topic of each post.
Tags, on the other hand… I was just typing in random keywords into the Tags field. That’s how it’s supposed to work, right?
Well… not exactly.
When it comes to graphic design, quality is super important. Not just the quality of the designs, but the quality of the images themselves.
You want the lines to be nice and crisp, not blown out and pixelated.
So, how the heck do you do that? With vectors!
