Weekly Roundup - March 2, 2018

It's here! It's here! It's finally here! This weekend is the start of the 2018 Design Bloggers Conference! Are you ready for a fun, information-packed time? Rachel and Flat Dixie sure are! (The real Dixie is SUPER jealous...)

We'll have a LIVE conference recap on our Design+Style Facebook page at 12:15 PM Eastern/9:15 AM Pacific on Wednesday March 7th and we'd love to have YOU as a guest! More info on that will be shared over the weekend in the Design+Style Club.

By the way, don't forget to download your very own Flat Dixie to take with you to Design Bloggers Conference next week and contribute to her Instagram adventures! We have another Design+Style travel mug to give away to one lucky person who takes a picture with Rachel and Flat Dixie and tags Design+Style in the pic. Will it be you?

Our Pro Tip of the Week

Design+Style Pro Tip

Share content that is personal but don't share personal content --Jasmine Star at Social Media Marketing World

Jasmine gave the example of if she showed a photo of her with her mom, she wouldn't just say, "I love my mom" she would say something to the effect of "my mom has always supported me and encouraged me to follow my true north. She inspired me to start my own business."

You are showing a personal side and being authentic and real while still directing it to your business and personal brand.
