What is behind the desk?
I am going to show you all my favorite, inspiring bloggers & their desks. Sounds silly but you'd be surprised about how many people WANT to see where all the magic happens. Well, I am going to show you. This week I have brought to you super cool, Swifty - Melanie Craft from melaniecraftco.com Melanie and I connected on a Facebook group for Squarespace users. I see Melanie helping other bloggers and Squarespace users like myself.
Who is Melanie?
Melanie is a full time blogger, mom, and wife. Melanie started her blog in 2014 & just went through a HUGE rebrand over the summer. Her site looks amazing at melaniecraftco.com
>> She blogs about building your online presence through Squarespace, social media and blogging. Melanie also host a interview series AKA- #MMCseries - Monday Morning Coffee series - where she bring on other inspiring coaches, bloggers and creatives. She has interviewed some amazing people like Jessica Says, Kayla Hollatz /Host of #createlounge, and Ashley Beaudin of Fireworkpeople.
1. What are three items on your desk you can't go without?
I feel like everything on my desk, I can't go without, but my top three (aside from my computer of course) are definitely my blog binder, my coffee and some pens/highlighters.
2. If I could steal something from your desk to help me with my blog, what would I take?
Definitely my blog binder! I have loads and loads of blog post ideas, income ideas, notes and more. This binder is sacred - my little baby.
3. MAC or PC?
I currently have an HP all in one computer. It's not a bad PC, it does the job. But if I would have had the 1500-2000$ to spend on a better computer, I would have definitely bought a Mac. I think macs are better for web developing (which is kinda what I've been getting into). There are so many more options in an apple computer rather than in a PC.
4. What's the last song you listened to?
My alarm clock is set to T-Swizzle every morning (welcome to New York), so that's the last one I've listened to this morning.
5. Organized? Or Organized Hot Mess?
I'm pretty organized. Sometimes an organized hot mess. It really depends. I may or may not have OCD (at least that's what I'm told) so if things feel out of place or dirty, I freak out. I can't work in an area that's unorganized.
6. What book would you suggest everyone read?
Kory (korywoodard.com) actually had me interested in We Were Liars written by E. Lockhart. I was hooked and read the whole book in 3 days.
7. What your spirit animal?
That's a great question actually. I feel like my spirit animal could be a sloth. They're so laid back (maybe a little lazy...). They eat and sleep, and repeat the same thing all day, everyday. I feel like that could really be my life.
