If there’s one thing that I’ve learned as a blogger, it’s the value of Pinterest. As far as it goes for me, Pinterest has brought over 50,000 visitors to my blog since I became self-hosted and is my #1 source of traffic. It has made me grow my traffic from 300 to 18,000 monthly pageviews in 9 months. So I think it’s safe to say that it’s pretty important that I invest some time and effort into the platform. In the span of 7 months, I went from 182 Pinterest followers to over 3,000. How did I do that? By making sure my Pinterest profile was the best it could be! The first step to gaining followers on Pinterest is to make sure your profile is optimized.  So, want to get hundreds of followers every week? Here’s how to set your Pinterest profile for success!

When I started blogging, I was a bit all over the place. I didn’t really know what I was doing or where to go for more information. Heck, that’s still the case now, even after almost two years of blogging (!!!). There are a lot of things I wish I had known before I started blogging, and one of those things is what blogging mistakes I was making. I would have saved so much time if I had known these things when I first started!

Struggling to get through the end of the semester? Click through to find how to finish the semester strong!

Midterms are over. We’re already heading into finals. Suddenly, it all seems like it’s too much and we won’t be able to handle it. Oftentimes, the second half of the semester is the hardest. Why? Because we don’t have any motivation left. We gave all we got to midterms, and now we feel like we have no energy whatsoever to get through the end of the semester. I know what it’s like. Summer or winter break seems like lifetimes away, and we already dread the pile of work we have to do before it’s all over. It’s easy to lose sight of your goals when there are a million things to stress over. But it’s important to keep your head above the water and finishing it all with a bang. Here’s how you can finish the semester strong!

Can you believe this is already my 100th post on A Wanderer’s Adventures?! I sure can’t! I can’t believe I’ve had this little corner of Internet for almost two years. I can’t believe I’ve made it this far! I’ve tried several times to have a blog before, but I never kept it as long and invested in it as much as I did with one. Who would have thought that almost two years later, I would be writing this post? If you had asked me at the very beginning, I would have told you that of course, I would be a super famous blogger (let’s laugh at that for a minute) by now, but deep down, I knew I would probably give this up in a couple of weeks. You have no idea how glad I am that I didn’t give up! A Wanderer’s Adventures has allowed me to make friends with people from all over the world, to express myself in a creative and fun way, and to help thousands of students and young women. I would never have been able to achieve that had I not continued working hard on this blog.

To celebrate my 100th post, I thought I would do a little blogging recap of some of my favorite and best blog posts.  View Post

I don’t like to think about it too much, but eventually, college is going to come to an end. It might be a year away for me, but I know a lot of college bloggers (and college students in general) are graduating this year. I don’t know about you, but just the thought of having to do into the adult world is kind of scary. Hell, I’m going through it right now (even if I’m still a college student), and I can tell you, this is not easy.

With graduation comes living on your own. People don’t tell you this very often, but it takes a lot of things to furnish your first apartment. And there are a lot of big purchases that you have to plan ahead, otherwise, you’ll end up broke in no time. So what are the biggest purchases you’ll have to make after graduation? Let’s take a look.  View Post
