The Lace & Lilacs Podcast ♥ Episode Two
(Apologies for the subpar audio recording. We were experiencing technical difficulties, but should have everything under control by next week. Thank you for your understanding!)
episode two synopsis
Blogging has been such an adventure for us both since we began, and while we now have a decent grasp of the industry, there are a few things that we definitely would have benefited from knowing before we started. In today’s episode we’ll be discussing all the facts we wish had been readily available to us when we first launched our sites.

Love your tips on finding your voice and blogging for the love of it. Those are so great for any blogger, new or established! Sometimes we can lose our way, so it’s good to take time to reflect on why we started :).
Thanks so much, Laura! I’m glad you enjoyed this… I was a little bit unsure about this podcast, because of both the audio quality and the topic, so it’s great to hear nice things. <3
Dangg, it’s commendable how you draft most posts at least a month in advance! I’m always behind and usually draft them the night before, earliest a week in advance 😛 / “If I wasn’t being paid, would I still recommend this?” Love that! That’s my gauge as well. Actually I don’t get paid for anything so I’m not sure what I’m using this gauge for, but I very consciously have this explicit mindset haha / Thanks for sharing the link about writing emails! Sooo helpful. I’m guilty of excessive use of exclamation marks… / Bloglovin’ is my fave!! So obsessed -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
Hahah, thanks Audrey! I’m a total control freak and HAVE to draft posts in advance. Sometimes I almost wish I could be more relaxed about it, honestly. And I’m so glad you liked the paid/recommend tip! It’s def a good mindset to have just in case a paid opportunity ever comes along. I tend to stay away from them myself, unless they’re really worth the $, just because I feel that they cheapen my site. Which, again, is why that question comes in handy!
And isn’t that writing e-mails link fab?! It’s such an excellent resource! And yep, Bloglovin’ forever! <3
Yaay! I was so happy with this episode – even with the technical difficulties! Can’t wait to record the next one!
I’m so excited for the next episode! Chat soon xx
Abby you have such a lovely voice and gaahhh that accent :’) LOVE your voice! (was that creepy? Sorry, haha :p) Anddd I loved this topic, it was so helpful, especially considering I’d been having consistency problems lately O:) So thank youuu xx
Hahah, not creepy AT ALL. Thank you so much! Of course, I don’t really think I have an accent… are you sure you didn’t mean Lucy Claire? Her accent is AMAZING. I’m so jealous.
And I’m glad you found the topic helpful! If there are ever any questions you’d like answered in the podcast or if there’s a topic you’d like to see featured, shoot me an e-mail or leave a comment here. We want to give our listeners the info they need! <3 xoxo
Omg I love how you talk about the doubt of being a teen blogger!!! I mean I’m a teen too and school is basically my life so then my blog takes up the rest of the time so half of the time I just talk about school :/
Also, I can’t believe you draft so many posts above hand because I seriously have none and do everything the minute before!! Ofc, this results in a bunch of stress during the weekend, but eh.
This topic is absolutely wonderful and such valuable advice! It’s basically unreal how many hours people put into blogs and how much time people think it takes! Anywho, loving the topic (and your blog!!!) so yeah! :DDDD
Thanks so much, Anne!
Yeah… being a teen blogger is difficult, isn’t it? Your site is amazing though; you’re doing so well!
And yep… I draft all my posts in advance hahah. It’s just what works for me! I’m a bit of a control freak. 🙂
I’m so glad you liked this topic. If you have any questions you’d like answered on the show in the future feel free to send them to me! xoxo
