Mental health has always been a hot topic on the internet and generally in life. But due to the recent coronavirus pandemic it has become even more talked about, and rightly so. People are suffering even more than before, and people are finding it really difficult to get the help they need. The usual facilities or help lines are closed and people have been left jobless, even homeless with mental health problems. Yes we are currently experiencing a global pandemic of COVID, but I think we are also on the brink of a mental health pandemic too.Read more
As bloggers we all have blogging habits. Things we do everyday that revolve around our blogs. Whether it’s having WordPress open when doing work or checking stats from the second you wake. There are many other things that you can probably think of when it comes to your blog. And whether we admit it or not, we have all formed an addiction to blogging and there are habits that come with our addiction.
Sometimes habits can be formed without us even realising it, whether they are good habits or bad. I think it’s important to acknowledge these habits and recognise that some of them are not needed and are more annoying than anything else.Read more
With a new year comes alot of uncertainty, and I’m here to remind you that it’s okay to not have it all figured out. There seems to be this pressure in life that you have to know your next steps. When in reality you didn’t even know your steps before, they kinda just happened.
Do you ever feel like you’re just blowing in the wind of life, without any sort of direction? I’ve felt like that before. And contrary to belief, it’s okay to feel that way. Alot of the steps I’ve faced in life have just happened, not because I planned them out.Read more
When it comes to blogging I have made my fair share of blogging mistakes, but honestly I think we all have. Sometimes I don’t even know if I’d call them mistakes. Because I learnt something from each of them. Let’s rebrand mistakes as ‘lessons learnt’. It sounds alot better.
I’ve posted alot of content this year, and along the way have had many lessons learnt moments. And for todays blog I’ll be going through some of them. I want to do this so that you can learn from the blogging mistakes that I’ve made. And so you can make sure you don’t make the same mistakes I did. Its so easy to fall into bad habits, and it’s easy to make mistakes without even realising.Read more
When you first start out as a blogger there are so many blogging questions in your mind, because there is so much to learn. I remember feeling so overwhelmed when I really started to take my blog seriously. I kept seeing words like SEO and media kits being thrown around and I had no clue what it all meant.
Most things are overwhelming when you first start them, which is why I want to create this knowledge hub. So that it’s a place to go when bloggers have questions and they’re struggling to find the answers to.Read more

If you follow me on my Instagram, you will know I have shared my media kit before. When I asked my followers if they knew what a media kit was, alot of people said no. And when I look back to when I re-started my blog in July, I had no idea either. I remember finding a post about media kits at the time, and found it was so helpful to have a post that broke it down for me and explained in detail what it was.
A media kit is a portfolio type document that represents you and your blog. It’s something you use to sell yourself to brands. It’s important that your media kit is professional and sleek. And It should have all of the relevant information a brand might need to know about your site.
Be sure to keep reading as there is a freebie at the end of this post that I know you will be interested in!Read more

No matter the time of year or season, we are always striving to create good content for our websites.
