In the blogging world, competition can get real. I mean, it's not gladiator level serious. No one is dressed in metal skirts fighting in front of a riled mob. Yet, with the over abundance of information sprawled out all over the internet, getting your message across without sounding redundant, cliche or bland in comparison can be challenging. It's like everyone wants to be a guru now-a-days.
That being said, there is a big BUT to all of this. Blogging is a form of storytelling and expression. Ultimately, each blogger is either providing you with info, value or an experience. And Millennial Nomaad is all about sharing experiences. So here comes the BUT... Every writer, artist, entrepreneur, etc wants to be recognized. But, if you are worried about some healthy competition than that means you are doubting your value. In honor of sharing knowledge, sharing passion & building a community of understanding, I have selected a few fellow bloggers & entrepreneurs who have created their own niche with a unique dash of charm. I've always believed that if you provide good content (backed with good marketing) your audience will find you. And if what you provide further resonates in an authentic way, then your audience will support you.
As creative artists, sometimes we need guidance with practical living & strategic planning. (It's okay to ask for help!) Hope you enjoy this selection from some brilliant minds providing you with just that. Let me know what you think & share any insight in the comments below!
Nikki Novo is a seasoned writer having been the creator of Refinery's Miami chapter, as well as a published author. (Check out her book --> Will I Be Alone Forever: And Other Love Questions You Wish a Psychic Would Answer) I met her while at a South Florida Bloggers Networking event in Miami. I love how she simplifies ancient words of wisdom into direct and practical advice to help you lead an authentic life. She's like the go-to friend and/or cool aunt that every girl would want.
Shayda is sassy and glamorous, but don't let the polished photo shoots fool you. In addition to some healthy living tips, product reviews & glam photography, she has plenty of real and intimate advice on mindful living. Having recently received a dual Masters degree in Marriage, Couples & Family + Mental Health counseling, she's an exciting mix of compassionate meets assertive, beauty meets soul, and businesswoman all around. Shayda is all about balancing the good life + boss life.
Meet Antoinette, a.k.a The Young Professionalist. Based out of Philadelphia, she is a force to be reckoned with. We all know many millennials are turning away from the corporate world. But, Antoinette is here to help our generation improve our professional relationship in the corporate field, while encouraging companies to better appeal to millennial job seekers. In her own words, she is all about "bridging the gap between millennials and older generations to create awesome young professionals and future CEOS!" If you are a creative mind, yet are still interested in the corporate lifestyle, Antoinette is an example of how you can live the best of both worlds.
Spearheaded by founder Kate Gremillon & co-founder Tallia Deljou + their team, Mavenly is something we all wish we had about 5 years ago. (That's when I was a little freshie entering the candy store of knowledge called college.) Maybe having these mentors would have better guided my career decision making. But then again, I've always been the type to kind of just follow my intuition & figure it out from there. Nonetheless, Mavenly is a powerhouse of some incredible women & intelligent go-getters. I love their emphasis on building a community of lady bosses + a network of peer-to-peer support.
