When I first started my blog, I never knew that I would ever gain 4 thousand blog followers let alone do it in under a year. If you have been around since Olivia Lucie Blake started in July 2020, you’d have seen how hard I worked and how fast my blog really took off. I came back to blogging with no expectations. And truly, I believe thats how things work out. If you go into something with no expectations you can’t be let down if they are not met.Read more
If you were to ask any blogger that the main concern they have of their blog, 9 times out of ten they’d reply something to do with there blog stats. And I probably would too. Bloggers worry about anything and everything to do with their blogs. Sometimes we tend to worry too much. As a blogger I know that alot of our ‘success’ comes down to how many followers we have, or how many likes, views and comments our posts get. And when these numbers get low, it’s easy for us to become discouraged.Read more
As bloggers I feel like there is always one thing on our minds, and its how to grow your blog following. In our minds, more followers and more engagement means more success. But friend, It’s not always the case. You can have blogs that have thousands of followers and hardly any engagement and vice versa. It’s probably something alot of bloggers really struggle with. Actually, I know it’s something bloggers struggle with. Because I have been there myself. Blogs go through different periods of time where engagement and followers are high, and then there are months when they are low.Read more
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. But I was thinking back to when I came back to blogging in July of this year (2020) and how I would have really appreciated a post like this. As some sort of motivation and guidance.
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
I didn’t even know how to start this post. Because I was not quite prepared for me to hit this milestone so quickly. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for choosing to follow me. I restarted this blog at the beginning of July with 160 followers and no idea what I was doing (still don’t) and here I am on the 28th July hitting 1,000 followers. I never once thought this would happen and so soon.
I am still learning and making mistakes and still will. Theres always so much to learn with anything, especially blogging. Thank you for sticking with me. I hope that this can continue, and I hope this community of people can build up into an army of positive, self confident, kind humans. 💕
Special thanks to those that are constantly supporting, liking and commenting words of encouragement. You know who you are. And special thanks to those who have featured on my blog by doing guest posts. They really are so enjoyable and I love getting to know each of you through the process.
Thanks so much!

So why should blogging be any different? Today I hope to share some tips on how you can perfect your own blogging schedule and how that will help you see the results you want from your blog.Read more
Reading lifeofwhines blogging journey posts, it inspired me to start writing about my own blogging journey. August 10th 2015 was the date this blog was born, originally diademofbeauty and now olivialucieblake.
I can’t exactly remember the reason behind wanting to start a blog, it kind of just happened. Back then I wanted to share tips and tricks on beauty and makeup. I always struggled reading blogs and seeing nothing but perfect hair, nails and skin and wanted to show the world that the perfection they were seeing didn’t exist.Read more
