Blogging Advice I’ve Learnt Whilst Blogging

Blogging Advice I’ve Learnt Whilst Blogging

Before I started a blog I didn’t really look or research what goes into it. 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!

Lets Learn About Essential Oils

Lets Learn About Essential Oils

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.

How I’m Learning To Be More Grateful In Life

How I’m Learning To Be More Grateful In Life

It can be really hard when you suffer from a mental illness to see the brighter side of life. Your thoughts consume you and you feel hopeless. Whenever I feel this way, I try to remind myself of the good I have in this world. I remind myself of the things that bring me and joy and make me happy. I do this exercise as a reminder to my brain that things are better than I think they are.

I read a book that a therapist wrote a few years ago when I was at my lowest mentally, and it gave this really good learning technique. It was saying out loud to yourself that you acknowledge your feelings. This triggers something in your brain so that you recognise that it is just thoughts, it’s not real or present. Doing this exercise and saying out loud the good things you have in life can help in the same way. It’s like you’re talking to a friend or a family member, reminding them everything will be okay. But instead you are talking to yourself.

My Thoughts on Blogging

My Thoughts on Blogging

I’ve been wanting to write some sort of blogging post like this for a while but never felt I knew enough to give any advice on the matter. Then I realised, I probably wont ever get to a point where I feel like I know enough knowledge to share it. So thought I would share the advice I have now, in hopes it might help new (or old) bloggers out there.

Please know, I am no means and expert at blogging. I mess up and make mistakes just like everyone else. I probably don’t do a lot of things right with my blogs, but were all learning. I just want to share the little knowledge I have.

[Guest Post]

Hello everyone it’s me, Shayla from thedailyshayla.com. If you don’t know anything about me, I’m a 22 year old mother from the UK with a lot to say (hey that rhymes!).
I am so happy to be collaborating with Olivia on my first guest post! We have come together and created an awesome list of 10 things we have learnt in our twenties!

Here are the 5 things I have learnt in my twenties…all 2 loooooong years of them!

4 Tips That Will Teach You To Stop Hating Mondays

4 Tips That Will Teach You To Stop Hating Mondays

It’s a known fact that most people in the world hate Mondays. Monday signifies the end of the weekend, the start of a new working week, and 5 more days till the weekend. This alone can be a really daunting fact to some people and can be a really scary feeling. Have you ever heard of the saying Monday blues? Typically when you say someone has the “blues” it’s referring to them feeling sad, or upset or just not themselves. Monday blues is the same thing, except its referred to as a feeling you get of being “blue” because its Monday.

How I Survived a Seven Day Digital Detox And What I Learnt From It

How I Survived a Seven Day Digital Detox And What I Learnt From It

[Guest Post]

Answer this before you read on – When did you first check your phone today?

Hi! My name is Pranjali Jain, from Dainty Palms. I write about mental health and lifestyle- trying to inspire others and myself to be the best possible version of ourselves. Today I am going to share my experience and the importance of digital detox with y’all. Thank you, Olivia, for the opportunity to bring this forward!

A week ago, I did a seven-day long digital detox, wherein I shut my social media handles and my blog for a break. The pressure of posting anything, replying, and being active was too much to handle. And I think I am not the only one to face this. So, if your answer to the question was close to “within an hour of waking up”, you probably need a digital detox.

Lessons I’ve Learnt From My Friends

Lessons I’ve Learnt From My Friends

I did a blog post recently that was called ‘5 Lessons I’ve Learnt From My Parents‘ and I thought it would be a great idea to do the same post but based around things I’ve learnt from my friends. I’m so lucky to have been blessed with so many amazing friends throughout my life. Some just for a season and some for the long haul. I’m grateful for the lessons learnt in all of those friendships. My friends play such a huge role in my life so why not pass on the lessons and knowledge that I have learnt from them onto the world.
