Cora Harrington. Founder of \u00a0The Lingerie Addict,\u00a0the world's largest lingerie blog. American Women.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT LED YOU TO START WORKING IN DIGITAL\/MEDIA PUBLISHING?\r\n\r\nI\u2019m one of the people who \u201ctripped and fell\u201d into my current career. I started my website, The Lingerie Addict, as a hobby over 9 years ago. When it began to bring in more income than my day job, I made the switch to running it full time.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?\r\n\r\nThe first thing I do when I wake up is check-in on social media just to make sure there haven\u2019t been any \u201cfires\u201d overnight that need putting out. After that, I\u2019ll check my email for the same reason; I don\u2019t want to miss anything urgent if it\u2019s come in while I\u2019ve been asleep.\r\n\r\nIf there aren\u2019t any crises, I\u2019ll usually knock out the easy emails first thing, so I can get them out of the way and clear my inbox. I save inquiries that take more time and energy for later in the day.\r\n\r\nAt the moment, I\u2019m in the midst of writing a book, so most of my day consists of working on that, but I\u2019ll also spend some managing my team and social platforms - catching up with my Assistant Editor, doing final edits and revisions on my columnists\u2019 articles, and scheduling posts on social media.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT\u2019S YOUR WORK SETUP LOOK LIKE?\r\n\r\nI work out of a home office, and it\u2019s a bit like a combination editor\u2019s closet\/fashion library in here (with my desk and laptop tucked into a corner).\r\n\r\nAs for apps and tools, I love DropBox for file sharing, MeetEdgar for evergreen content scheduling, HootSuite for Twitter, and Tailwind for Pinterest. I also use a Facebook group to communicate with the team.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT DO YOU DO OR GO TO GET INSPIRED?\r\n\r\nI\u2019m lucky in that I find what I do to be inspiring in and of itself, but I also believe that part of doing your job means working even if you don\u2019t feel inspired. Completing tasks, checking things off my to-do list, knowing I\u2019m working towards my goals...that\u2019s inspiring to be, even if it\u2019s not terribly glamorous.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT\u2019S YOUR FAVORITE PIECE OF WRITING OR QUOTE?\r\n\r\n\u201cPerformance, productivity, and results,\u201d something my father told me all the time growing up.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWHAT IS THE PASSIONATE PROBLEM YOU ARE TACKLING AT THE MOMENT?\r\n\r\nMy book. It is slowly but surely consuming my entire life.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nIS THERE A PRODUCT, SOLUTION OR TOOL THAT MAKES YOU THINK IT IS A GOOD DESIGN FOR YOUR DIGITAL PUBLISHING EFFORTS?\r\n\r\nMeet Edgar is one of the best tools around right now, especially for publishers with rich archives. It\u2019s the essence of \u201cset it and forget it,\u201d something we can always use more of.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nANY ADVICE FOR AMBITIOUS DIGITAL PUBLISHING AND MEDIA PROFESSIONALS JUST STARTING OUT?\r\n\r\nConsistency is key. So many people lose out, not because their ideas are bad or because they were incapable of doing the work, but because they gave up or had to stop. Ambition can take you a long way, but showing up consistently day after day and getting the job done will take you further.
