BethBryan.com is a home, garden, DIY and interior design blog that features a considerable amount of do-it-yourself home projects that appeals to the weekend warrior audience. Also included in the content are travel tips, party decorating ideas, holiday decor, gardening ideas, photography tricks and anecdotes from motherhood.
Readership began to skyrocket after this tutorial on taking a glowing Christmas tree photo went viral on Pinterest in November of 2011. The next few years would see the rise of online visual influencers, and Beth has stayed at the top of her niche.
In 2016, Beth created The Lazy Girl’s Guide to LightroomTM, an e-course designed to teach her fellow bloggers how to use Adobe Lightroom to easily edit their photos and improve their photography. She currently has over 750 students enrolled in her course, with 225 students in a private facebook group to discuss improving blog photography.
The blog demographic consists primarily of well-educated American and Canadian women between the ages of 30-65 years of age who own their own homes and enjoy decorating and design projects. Most are married with children under 18 years of age.
