Having an email list is one of the most important things you need to do if you have a blog. I didn’t realise this when I first started blogging and it wasn’t until a few months ago that I decided to create one. Having an email list means you have a number of people you can directly market to. I know you have your blog for this, but there’s something about emails that make it that little bit more personal.Read more
Blog Post Ideas To Help Increase Traffic
Olivia, how do I increase traffic to my website? Well Anonymous 12625, I honestly have no idea. And that is usually how my conversations with people go, because I actually really don’t know.
There are so many variables as to how you grow your website and increase traffic. Thats why I wanted to create the 30 day blogging strategy so much. It has so many tips and tricks for you to use and actually makes you put in the hard work to achieve your goals. Growing your blog is not black and white and actually takes so much work. Its not as easy as me sharing a secret and your blog then growing at a fast pace. Sometimes grow is slow and not noticeable at first, and thats just the way it goes.Read more

How I Gained 2k Blog Followers in 4 Months
Running a blog is hard work, but with hard work comes results. I gained 2k blog followers in 4 months, and today I’m going to share my strategy on how I achieved it. I truly did not expect to gain 2k followers in 4 months, I had no idea this would happen.

If you are here because you think I’m going to give you some secret code that gives you those followers overnight, you are looking in the wrong place. This happened from hard work and dedication and nothing more. It wont happen overnight and it didn’t for me. The tips I share are the things I did to make this happen. It’s up to you to put in the hard work to see the results.Read more
How I Balance Blogging Around a Full Schedule
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.Read more
Blogging Q&A: You Ask, I Answer
I would never consider myself established or a subject matter expert on blogging, but I do get DM’s and questions about blogging, especially from newbies. As many of you already know my blogging story, I wont bore you with a repeat. But I would have found it so helpful if a fellow blogger at the time had an open discussion with their readers and answered as many blogging questions as they could. So I thought I’d give it a try today.
As I have already said, I’m by no means an expert at this. But I really want to help new and or established bloggers, with any helpful advice I can give.Read more
Blogging Advice I’ve Learnt Whilst Blogging
Before I started a blog I didn’t really look or research what goes into it and didn’t seek much blogging advice. I just saw others doing it and thought “I want to do this too!”. Of course if you are considering starting a blog or have just started one, I’d recommend doing the opposite of what I did. Its always good to research anything before you do it, especially when it involves the internet.
Blogging advice can vary, what I think works for me and my blog might not be the same case for you or another blogger. We don’t all have the same audiences, we don’t all have the same opinions and preferences in style and colours. Everybody has different thoughts and processes they follow.
Today I wanted to share the blogging advice I have learnt whilst blogging, in hopes it helps you on your blogging journey too!Read more
