Don’t stress! It’s just a Blog

Blog Doctor @kirst_enj

Blogging is a lonely job, you are a one-man editorial staff. Now and then you some need help from others, don’t be afraid to ask. As a blog doctor I will try to answer a lot of questions that (advanced) bloggers deal with. How can I blog more? How much money can I ask from a potential advertiser? How do I get more followers on Instagram? Do I really need Facebook? Is WordPress still the best? if you want me to answer your question, mention @kirst_enj on social with the hashtag #MTBquestion

Kirsten Jassies is our Meet the Blogger expert and blog coach and is often referred to as the ‘blog mother’ or ‘Instagram queen’. She is very passionate about blogging and social media and helps people with personal branding online. She is a teacher at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and gives workshops and presentations on Instagram marketing and social influencers. She wrote a book about Instagram and also publishes often on the Dutch online marketing platform Frankwatching.

CREATION
Make your own Zine!
By Claudi Kessels & Valesca van Waveren
Illustrative designers Claudi Kessels en Valesca van Waveren will guide you in making your own Zine in only 45 minutes. Zines are self-published, small-circulation, often nonprofit books, papers, or websites. They usually deal with topics too controversial or niche for mainstream media, presented in an unpolished layout and unusual design. You can be an author, editor, art director, and publisher of a zine, all at the same time, and that’s part of what makes them so awesome. You will make a cool cover, bind your zine, and fill it with nice content. You will get all the ingrediënts you need to make a really cool zine.

‘Het PapierAtelier’ allows the online world of the Happymakersblog.com to come alive with various paper and illustration workshops.

Everything you always wanted to know about colour forecasting
And the story behind the colour of the year 2016
by Heleen van Gent - head of the colour and design studio of AkzoNobel 
Every year Flexa - part of AkzoNobel - announces worldwide the colour of the year  (#KvhJ2016). Did you know they choose this colour two years ahead of time?

But how do you pick one single colour, when there are ten thousands of colours to choose from? Social, economic and design trends around the world play a role. The colour team collaborates with a select panel of independent architect, design and fashion experts to forecast the colour developments. Heleen van Gent will give a sneak peek of the world behind the process and she gives further information on the trends for 2016. There will be enough opportunity to ask her anything about the ColourFutrues. And what is your colour for 2016?
