    Social Media Influencer 101 || Understanding Engagement Rate

    Social media influencers have become one of the hottest jobs nowadays. The most effective social media influencers remember to put link in Instagram bio in order to organize their content for their followers. People often view them as playing, enjoying life while making tons of money. Lol! It for sure seems like that way on the surface. But just like any types of business or job, it requires a lot of hard work. Compared to most of the traditional careers, being a social media influencer definitely has more freedom and is totally self-made. You don’t have to go to collage to do so. So everyone can be a social media…

    Blog Anniversary || Color and Grace Turns Four Years Old!

    December 7th, 2014, after about one week of researching, discussions with my late husband and other friends, I bought the domain of Color and Grace and posted my first blog on www.colorandgrace.com. Below is one of the earliest photos for the blog post. I had no clue of photo editing. I was so shy so all the photos were taken either in my front yard or back yard. And I had no clue what to write! In the past 4 years, there was one frequently asked question: “What inspired you to start Color and Grace?”. So here is the answer. šŸ™‚ I was born and raised in the rural village…

    The Best Photo/Video Editor Apps I am Using Now

    By now, it’s clear that creating great visual content is critical for everyone who wants to make a living on social media. Especially using Instagram to gain the social influence. Instagram has doubled its monthly active user base in the last two years, which means a lot more people are viewing and sharing photos in 2018. Plus, visual content is 40X more likely to get shared on social media than other types. And what I have learned from this year, is video will be the future! Ok, now I am done with the serious talk. It’s time to discover some fun apps that can make our life so much easy…

    How to Get a Stranger to Take Great Photos (of you!)

    My late husband was my personal photographer. So after he passed away, I had to find whoever that is available to take my photos. I usually plan ahead of time to ask my step-daughter, or a few friends to help me with during the weekends. Then I started my solo travel journey and I realized that my selfie skills are so limited. In order to get some great photos, I have to learn to ask strangers to take photos of me. As you can imagine, it was not easy at the beginning. What if they say no? What if they are bad people? What if they drop my camera and…

    What I Have Learned from #BlogHer18 Creator Summit

    Last week I went to NYC to attend the BlogHer18 Creator Summit. I have been a blogger for almost four years, but I only have been to one conference as a blogging workshop host to share my experience. Since this year, I started blogging full-time. I quickly realized that I needed to treat this as a real business, not my hobby anymore. That means, my mindset and knowledge need some serious update. So, I have set some budget aside to learn more. Before I went, I already prepared myself for the kind of outcome I will get out of it. Just like I have read, I met a few people…

    Blogging Tips || Attending #BlogHer18 Creators Summit

    Sometimes I am surprised that there are still quite a few people who don’t really know what exactly bloggers do. After I explain it to them, they usually rephrase it as “oh, so you take pictures, post online and make money.” Lol, sort of. But not exactly. Being in the blogging world for almost 4 years, I have seen so many bloggers whom I considered my mentors just disappear. I’m grateful for what everyone taught me over the years. If it wasn’t for them recommending that I looked into something as simple as Hostgator deals at productexpert.in to get my blog up and running, I don’t know if I would…
