Welcome to 2018 Minty! 2017 was definitely one of the best years both for MintSwift and for me personally. I was able to achieve most of my personal and business goals, overcome a lot of issues and make a lot of changes for MintSwift, the biggest was: changing up my services, updating my portfolio and website, deleting my email list and stopping being an online course creator and the best part – working with amazing female entrepreneurs on their brands & websites.
Similar to my last year’s post (about my blog posts from 2016), in this post, I’m going to share the round up of all posts I’ve written in 2017 on Branding, Design, WordPress, Business & Blogging. You can find all of my posts, from 2016, 2017 and 2018 in blog archives. Let’s dive in, shall we?!
MY BLOG POSTS FROM 2017 ON BRANDING, DESIGN, WORDPRESS, BUSINESS & BLOGGING
In 2017, I shared seven blog posts about my design process behind the brand design (Nicole Stewart, Get Styled with Jessica, Hints of Life, Garden of Beauty, Kingston Crafts) or brand & website design package (Oh My Foodie, Busy Veggie Family). I published one of my most popular posts about the differences between branding and brand identity, along with why branding is more than just a logo, 5 types of logos, why you need logo variations.
Last year, I definitely talk more about branding, design, WordPress here on the blog (especially, after I deleted my email list and stopped being online course creator, so I focused more on the client’s work). In the design category, you can find posts about my new brand & website design services, 7 things to consider before hiring a brand designer, why I don’t design moodboards for my clients and 10 ways to find your style preferences before hiring a brand & web designer.
Also, I shared six blog posts about my design processes; 3 for brand design process (how my brand design process looks like, an inside look at my brand design package design process & deliverables, how I design brand in 2 weeks) and 3 for brand & website design package which you can find below under WordPress category.
In 2017, I started my WordPress 101 blog series, in which you can find posts like how to create a page in WordPress, how to start a WordPress blog & website in 10 minutes or less, how to write a blog post in WordPress and how to add Google Analytics to WordPress.
As I’ve mentioned, I shared three in-depth posts about how my brand & website design process looks like, an inside look at my brand & website design package design process & deliverables, how I design brand & website in 4 weeks.
I started off 2017 with the 8 blog & business lessons I’ve learned in 2016, then shared things I would do differently in my first year of business (I shared it in March when my business anniversary is).
In August, I shared probably one of the most venerable and honest posts (for which I received so many unexpected and encouraging comments here on the blog and on Instagram) – the post was about 8 reasons why I deleted my email list along with free resources library & Pinterest course and why I stopped being an online course creator.
WHAT’S COMING IN 2018 FOR MINTSWIFT?
The beginning of 2018 is super busy with client work, so I didn’t have a lot of time to plan, but I know one thing for sure – As I’ve mentioned before, my main focus is my lovely clients for brand design or brand & website design. I’ll continue to share my work, learn new things, and get out of my comfort zone and so on. For the blog, I plan to change the categories a bit so there’ll we still six categories, but I’ll have: Design, Branding, WordPress, Portfolio, Blog & Business, Tech Tutorials.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for following my journey in 2017, for encouraging me and for every kind comment about my designs. In case you didn’t see the archives, make sure to click the bottom below to read all of my posts.
