According to statistics, one in three marriages end in divorce due to affairs started on social media. 210 million people are estimated to suffer from internet and social media addictions, and 71% of people sleep with or next to their mobile phone [kinda weird if you think about it!]. Believe me too, these were not the craziest statistics I found when researching this topic.Read more
Before I came back to blogging in 2020 I had no idea I could build a brand from my blog. It wasn’t even something that I had considered. I always knew blogging to be something you could do as a hobby and a place to read recipes and other fun things like that. At the time I didn’t realise that so many people make really successful businesses from it. I know that being at the stage where you make money from blogging can take a while, but I didn’t even consider it to be an option for me.Read more
After such an interesting year spent indoors and a year feeling less healthier than we were, I’m almost certain that I am not the only one who gained a few pounds. If you were part of the lucky few who challenged themselves to a healthier lifestyle, good on you. Unfortunately, I cannot relate. My lockdown started off great, and then it wasn’t. I could give you every excuse about why it all went south, but that won’t help anyone. Instead, I would just like everyone who is in a similar situation to know that it’s okay. We had our slip up but now it’s time to get healthier.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
We have many different influences in life, it could be faith/religion, close circle of friends or the media. Influence comes in many ways, shapes and forms and can be both positive and negative. There are many different things in life that have an influence on who you are and how you choose to behave and think. We also [sometimes without knowing it] have influence on others, our actions and words have influence on almost everyone we come into contact with. Originally I wanted to write this post about social media influencers, but thought lets go a step further and discuss influence as the big picture.Read more
Every blogger wants to know the secret of how to grow your blog. We are always looking out for new tips and tricks and things we can implement into our own blogging strategies and schedules. As bloggers we are constantly trying to think of new ways to engage our audiences and publish interesting content. It can be so tiring coming up with new ideas and trying to figure out a schedule.
If you’ve been following me for a while you know one of the main things I want to do for my readers is provide you with as much insight and help into blogging as I can. I’ve said this many times but blogging is about community and about helping one another. I always like to reiterate that were all on the same team, which is why I love helping others with the knowledge I have.Read more
One of the most important things about blogging is your blog audience. Without your audience your blog won’t get to where you want it to go. You essentially rely on strangers to read and interact with your content in order for your blog to be grow and flourish. It’s a weird concept if you think about it too much. As a blogger you rely heavily on your blog audience to interact and share your content, but with that its up to us (as bloggers) to try to understand our audiences a little better.Read more
We all have things we are addicted to in life. But one thing us bloggers have in common is that we are all probably addicted blogging. Whether we realise it or not. Well, hate to say it folks, you probably are! Don’t worry though, this is a safe space for you to admit it. We’re all here for you! The first step to overcoming it is to admit it!
Blogging addiction is real and very present in alot of bloggers lives. Now there are worse things to be addicted to [obviously] but that doesn’t mean its a good addiction to have. If its interrupting your life and having more of a negative impact on your mood then its time I’d say to re-evaluate what you’re doing.Read more
