I know alot of people don’t like Instagram much, and I know why. Just like many other social media platforms, they have changed their algorithm, and it’s made it even harder for creators for their work to be seen. I started my blog instagram page in September, previous to starting it I was using my own personal Instagram. It didn’t take me long to realise this was a bad idea. I think for me it’s important to have some sort of separation from personal and blog, which is the main reason why I started the separate account.
A lot of people don’t realise the work that goes into running a blog full time, there’s so much more to it than just writing and posting content. Theres the interaction side of it, and making sure that you are supporting other people as much as they are supporting you. Theres the upkeep, making sure that all of the links are working on your site, and making sure you are staying ontop of post ideas and emails and sticking to your blogging schedule. I could go on and on.
Since starting my Instagram account I have personally seen many benefits of having the account for my blog, and today I’ll be going through those benefits today.
I regularly speak on the types of people you should surround yourself with and how it has such an impact on who you are as a person. I saw something on Facebook not to long ago, and it wasn’t even when I was seeking blogging inspiration. A lesson here to be had that inspiration can come at the most random moments. As I was saying, I saw a post that listed 5 types of people you should surround yourself with and I was like, this would be a perfect blog topic. So here we are.
It can be so hard balancing the things that come with life, some things we choose to do and some things we have to do. When I restarted my blog this year I didn’t realise that it would be like a full time job and I already have a full time job. I know some fellow blogging friends of mine have families and kids they have to look after too, so I cant even image running a blog and having to juggle all of that.
I often get asked how I post so much and how I manage to balance everything to stay afloat. So this is why this post is here! I want to share what I personally do to keep onto of my blog whilst having a full time job and other commitments. It’s not easy, but I hope these tips can help to take some weight off of your shoulders.
Were still in quite a weird time right now, and making the most out of life probably looks a-lot different than if I was writing this a year ago. But none-the-less I think its still so important that we make the most out of life. Not to get morbid here, but we don’t know when our time will be up. We don’t know when we will die, so why do we always put these off for a later time or not appreciate the time we do have here enough?
I’m writing today’s post as a reminder to you and to me too. That we must do all we can to appreciate and love the life we are in now. Tomorrow is not guaranteed, so live your life today. Here are my top 10 pieces of life advice that I follow, that allow me to make the most out of life.
Everyday I feel like I learn something new about blogging, do you feel that too? There is so much to learn and understand, from SEO (search engine optimisation) to blog themes, to back links… I could be here all day listing it all. Something I’ve been learning recently though is that a website is such a huge representation of the person/company behind it, and it made me realise how important it is to maintain a good website thats representative of you and your brand. Custom digital content can help so much with creating that professional and sleek web page that a lot of us desire and want for our own sites.
So let’s get started on learning how custom digital content can help enhance your website!
This year I’ve really been trying to live a cleaner life. Now by that I mean trying to stay away from modern medicine and being more aware of the things I put on my body and the things I eat too. Thankfully this is easier now as there are so many different products and alternative things we can use to make ourselves feel better. Today we will be discussing essential oils and I’ll be sharing the benefits I’ve been noticing in my life since making the switch.

We have all been there before, when you have a lot of stuff going on but you know its your blog posting day. You have nothing prepared and so you know you need to put something together quickly. You do it, but don’t really want to. Blogging feels like a chore rather than a hobby or job. I get it, I’ve been there before. There are some things we can do to combat this feeling and thats what we’ll be discussing today! And I hope they can be of some help to you.
Relatable blog content can be defined as any content that the reader can relate to. Thats what I try to do with my own blogging content. I try to make sure that it’s a real life issue that people are going through, or that it’s something I would like to learn myself if I am providing tips and advice. I think it’s important as a writer to believe in what you are saying. How can I expect my readers to relate to something when I don’t even relate to it myself?
