Are Bloggers Who Make Money Blogging Sell-Outs?

I haven't been able to just sit down and write out some thoughts for a while, but something has been on my mind lately and after I read Can Full-time Bloggers Live Off of Rainbows + Hugs? by Holly last night, it struck a chord with me and I wanted to share it.

In it, she talks about how she's been criticized for making money with her blog and making it more like a business than a hobby. She shares a comment from a reader who is fed up with her "selling, selling and more selling" as well as a reply from her husband which contains a ton of great points. I wanted to chime in on this as well because I too have received the same types of comments in the past along the lines of "you're always talking about money/trying to sell something" or my favourite, "why do you include affiliate links in your posts? Do you really need the money that badly?" (yes, that was an actual comment).

Messy Waves for Short or Medium Length Hair : Tutorial!

Hello lovelies! It's been quite a while since I did a hair tutorial, but since you have asked me (a bunch of times) how I do my hair now that it's shorter, I thought I might as well throw this together for you.  Really, the only thing that has changed is the size of the barrel I use. This has been my go-to style ever since I made the chop and the best part is, it's really easy and quick. I created a video tutorial so you can see exactly how I do it, as well as a photo demonstration below.

TECH TUES: Create an App Icon for Your Blog

Did you know that this blog has its own app icon that can be placed right on your iPhone's home screen for quick and easy access to the site? Well, it does, and yours can too. Creating a unique app icon for your website in today's age of smartphones is definitely something that should be taken advantage of. If not for you, but for your visitors especially! The bookmarking feature on your iPhone might not get enough recognition, but it sure does make things 100x easier and quicker to get to your favourite sites.
