Today on the Planted With Light Podcast, I’m talking with Design blogger & Social Media Marketing expert, Julia Atkinson from Studio Home.

In this episode we talk about how Julia went from ski instructing in Queenstown NZ, to blogging about design. Julia shares how she finds content to post daily, and why she doesn’t get overwhelmed. Julia shares openly how she makes an income as a blogger.

We talk about the power social media, and the reasons she believes you shouldn’t outsource it if you own a small business. I ask Julia if she thinks having a blog as a creative small business owner is still important.

We talk about ignoring copycats, avoiding comparison, the myth of the starving artist, and why she believes it doesn’t have to exist anymore.

This episode is perfect for anyone wanting to improve their blogging and social media presence. If you are a designer or maker wanting to get your product or art noticed by more people, you will love the wisdom Julia has to share.
