The case for mobile optimization is clear. Over half of all internet traffic is mobile. As early as 2012, a Google Survey found that 61 percent of users would leave a site if it wasn’t mobile friendly, and early last year Google announced it would further lower the rank of sites that were not optimized for mobile devices.

Since everyone is talking about their New Year goals and resolutions, I decided to focus on priorities first… and this year my priority number 1 is TIME!
We often get all taken by our work and the amount of tasks that need to be done, forget about taking breaks, checking in with ourselves, catching up with our beloved ones… That often leads to feeling overworked, overwhelmed, overburnt and all other not positive over word that we often use. This happens because we spread ourselves too thin: we try to do everything by ourselves, we are afraid to ask for a help or advice, we not always accept one, or we think we cannot afford it, and instead we spend too much of what’s actually priceless. And yes, that is TIME.
In this post I’ll be pointing out a few things that you should now stop doing and focus on what you’re great at instead! While if you need any help or advice or just opinion regarding your branding or web design – do not hesitate to get in touch with my anytime! (more…)

I’m not going to say that Christmas is just around a corner, because it’s not there yet… well, it kind of is, but there’s another block to walk through, and then yeah.. right there, that corner!
Anyways, since it’s coming, and we all know how quickly Christmas can come – I decided to be quicker this time as well! I spent some time thinking about this year of 2016, how special it was, how much I’ve grown and how by business has grown as well. I feel so much bigger than I was before. I’m proud of myself, the steps I’ve taken, the challenges I’ve embraced and how strong I’ve stayed through all the darkest times. I never gave up, and I’m still fighting. And that’s the pure beauty of life – it will never be easy, but it will be damn interesting and fun! And that’s how I choose to look at it: fun, interesting, challenging and spectacular. I guess that really inspired me to be more grateful for everything and everyone. So here comes some very special Blogger’s & Entrepreneur’s gift guide for Christmas + free printable gift tags!
Look, I know, I totally get it… It can be so hard at first. That happened to me as well… But let me tell you something – everything’s easier than it might look at first. I don’t mean to say that blogging is easy, or that it will be super easy for you. But there are certain things which require some patience and little peace of mind, and these are the keys to success!
I know that starting your new blog is something very exciting, and there patience isn’t the best friend.
When I started my own blog, I’ve built it in one day, because I was going nuts about the thought that it can take longer. I wanted everything to be done and ready as soon as possible, and oh boy – I was wrong.
I’m not saying that this is impossible, – what I mean to say is that you should give more of a thought and be more specific and clear about the actual idea of your blog. You do really need to make some big decisions, which can later do wonders! And sometimes the later doesn’t really mean a year, or two. Sometimes it can take a month, or even less to drive quite a big traffic to your blog, build a community around it, and get some first followers and readers. But that happens only if you start it in a right away, and if you know where to begin from. (more…)
