Finding Your Signature Color: Starting in Your Closet

Coco Chanel said it best. You pick out clothing based on what color looks good on you. You know what color makes your eyes pop and what color washes you out. Why shouldn’t it be the same for picking out paint color for your home?

Join Alt Winter 2016 sponsor Sherwin-Williams on Twitter this Wednesday January 13th at 9AM PT/12PM ET/5PM GMT to chat about color. 

Alt Chat Wednesday: Making Your Original Photography Stand Out from the Crowd

What grabs your attention as you frantically thumb through your feed of favorite blogs and social media? Eye catching visuals. Maybe a splash of color used strategically. A pattern. A luxurious fabric. Whatever it is you can bet the “it” was intentional. 

Here are four ways to make your visual branding stand out from the crowd, along with tips for where to find those crave worthy props and get imagery if you’re not a photographer. 

    Alt Chat Wednesday: Setting Goals for 2016

    Goal setting is a great time for reflection and for changing direction if your current plans aren’t feeling right. And, now is the perfect time to start thinking about your goals for 2016. Here are eight steps to help you set a strong foundation for success whether you’ve been working on your creative endeavor or blog for a while or just starting.

    Using Twitter Chats to Connect with Others in the Alt Community

    Over the next three weeks, we want to get to know you better! We’re starting on Twitter this week December 16, 2015 with Blogger Fashion: Getting Creative with Your Outfits when You Work from Home. And then we’ll close out December with your accomplishments and proudest 2015 moments (December 23, 2015) followed by your upcoming goals and plans for 2016 (December 30, 2015). We can’t wait!

    All #AltChat Twitter chats start at 9AM PT/12PM ET/5PM GMT and last an hour. They’re super casual, so don’t feel bad if you can only join for a few minutes or jump into the conversation later.

    How Does it Work: Facebook Groups

    Facebook groups are a great place to connect with others with similar interests. Many conferences, including Alt Winter 2016, have private Facebook groups for their attendees. Attendees can arrange pre-conference meet ups, shared hotel accommodations, and more. 

    If you’re new to Facebook Groups, they can be a little overwhelming. These tips will have you networking and collaborating with fellow group members in no time at all!

    Alt Chat Wednesday: The Art of Content Curation

    Curation is nothing new. And it’s definitely not scary. Every museum has an art curator. They’re responsible for your experience, from finding the artists to showcase to setting the context for selected artists and the chosen pieces. 

    Online we’re all curators. Want to discover great sources to share from? Or tools for streamlining your curation? Join Flipboard—another of our amazing Alt Winter 2016 sponsors–and the Alt Community for #AltChat on Twitter December 9th at 9AM PT/12PM ET/5PM GMT for answers to these questions and more!
