  • Hi Marina I saw that you visited my blog so I’m returning the favor and checking out yours! It’s super cute! I really like this post and am definitely going to be doing a lot of these things. You asked for feedback, and being a newer blogger I would definitely just recommend consistency in your posting schedule (I still struggle with this, haha!). Also, content that is helpful to readers (like this post!) typically performs really well — especially if you’re promoting it on Pinterest! Best of luck, and feel free to email me (there’s a form on my site under contact) if you have any specific questions or anything!
