All about Holly:

I moved to Phoenix (where it is a million degrees all the time) because I love my boyfriend.

I love math and data as well as art and food.

I’m mostly vegetarian – I don’t like most meat.

I stopped blogging for nearly a year because I lost interest.  Oops.  Back now!

I love a challenge.  I started The Scary Adventure where I make things that are scary to me so that I always have a challenge.

I enjoy coding and learning more about coding.  Coming up with fancy social media icons is how I like to spend my weekend.  That’s why I’ve offered my services to help you.

I love photoshop.  I wish I knew how to use it better.

I’m working full-time and going to school part-time.  And managing this blog.

I’m on Pinterest way more than I should be.

I have pets.  Two kitties and a puppy.

I don’t have any kids.

I love food.  Mac and cheese being my favorite.

I eat out a lot.  I like to try new restaurants.

I love animals.  My favorite day  in the past year was at the zoo.

I once found a turtle the size of my thumb.  I showed the pictures to my whole office.

I found you through your mac and cheese picture on Six Sisters Stuff. It drew me in. Mac and cheese is one of my favorite comfort foods too! I’m also in Arizona! Your photos are lovely, by the way.

You have a really great blog! I enjoyed looking around! :)

I do have a question though. How do you get your media kit up on your “Pages” menu to directly open the PDF? I am trying to do that with my blog and can’t seem to do it. I would greatly appreciate, if you could help me out!

Sandi :)

Hi, Sandi! Thank you for those kind words. :)

For the media kit, I uploaded the PDF to my wordpress media library. Then I copied the link to the pdf and added that link to my menu. Let me know if this helps or if you have more questions. I can send screenshots via email if you have more questions.

Thanks for getting back to me Holly!! I did upload the pdf but how do I copy the link into the pdf and then add it to the menu? That is what I don’t understand.

Sandi :)

Hello, Sandi! From the dashboard, you click on “Media,” and then click “Edit” underneath the media kit PDF that you uploaded. On this page, off to the right hand side you will see “File URL” and you can highlight this and use this as the link. I hope that makes sense. I’ll post a picture if you’d like to show you more clearly. Sometimes words are just not enough. :)

Thank you Holly but I still can’t get it. I understand the part where i have to highlight and copy the file url but then where do I paste it? I tried putting it as a new page, in the title but that doesn’t work. Even when I put it as a link inside the page that still doesn’t work. Yes please post a picture…thanks so much! :)

Hi Sandi! I just emailed you.
