My writing career has taken a lot of interesting editorial twists and turns, especially when blogging became the new norm in media. With the change came the opportunity to connect on creative projects with brands I actually use in my everyday farm girl lifestyle — Durango Boots, Carol’s Daughter and Dr. Locs.
Testing and sharing my top products and services like the pictured Shea Moisture shampoo and conditioner (my daughter’s most-popular pick) and e.l.f.’s molten liquid eye shadow and poreless face primer, have opened up collaborative doors with fashion, beauty and hair companies since starting my blogazine four years ago.
It’s a growing trend among beauty and fashion bloggers to work with well-known businesses on marketing initiatives. In turn, professional writers often secure sustainable freelance gigs that are beyond fun to pursue.
