My Blog Writing.

Writing blog content is where I first got my "big break" in the marketing world! Here are a few blog posts from the Threadless Blog, Creative Resources blog for Threadless Artist Shops, and for Shedd Aquarium: three resources that required three very different voices and content strategies under one umbrella. 

A few blog highlights: 

  •  With me in the driver's seat as the content manager, the Threadless Blog was mentioned as an example of great business blogging in this article.
     

  • The Threadless blog averaged 22,527 monthly views in 2018.
     

  • In 2016, I helped grow the new Threadless Creative Resources blog by 88% using SEO tactics, an email newsletter, and stellar content.
     

  • I grew the Threadless Creative Resources Blog, a marketing, business, and inspiration resource for artists, from the ground up.

"Designs We Wish Were Also B-Movies"

For: the Threadless blog

Creating content for the Threadless blog was a fine line between fun, sharable content and content that displayed buy-worthy designs. This is a great example of a piece that got the foot in the door with a fun topic while using designs we were selling as the visual piece.

"How to Use SEO to Get More Customers"

In addition to this blog serving a helpful SEO guide for artists building their online store, it was also designed with our own blog's SEO in mind.

"Find Your Typography Style with '36DaysOfType'"

"Gift Art That Lifts & Inspires This Holiday Season"
