It’s a very common thing to hit a blog wall, and it can happen alot if we aren’t careful. Sometimes we just get to a point where we can’t do it anymore. I’ve felt this over the last few months. I have noticed my motivation and desire to blog has been overshadowed by other things going on in my personal life. Its taken my attention away from blogging and made me feel like putting less effort into my blogs.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
It’s 2021 and you’ve decided you want to make money from blogging, but you don’t know how. You’ve tried your hardest to reach out to brands but none of them have got back to you (this happens to all of us) and you’re about to give up. Then you see this post on your reader and its like a light at the end of the tunnel!
If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know that I try to share as much information and guidance as I can when it comes to blogging. Now I’m no expert, but I have made my own fair share of blogging mistakes to at least steer you in the right direction instead of the wrong. I know how difficult it can be to make money from blogging. I know first hand.Read more
When it comes to blogging I have made my fair share of blogging mistakes, but honestly I think we all have. Sometimes I don’t even know if I’d call them mistakes. Because I learnt something from each of them. Let’s rebrand mistakes as ‘lessons learnt’. It sounds alot better.
I’ve posted alot of content this year, and along the way have had many lessons learnt moments. And for todays blog I’ll be going through some of them. I want to do this so that you can learn from the blogging mistakes that I’ve made. And so you can make sure you don’t make the same mistakes I did. Its so easy to fall into bad habits, and it’s easy to make mistakes without even realising.Read more
When you first start out as a blogger there are so many blogging questions in your mind, because there is so much to learn. I remember feeling so overwhelmed when I really started to take my blog seriously. I kept seeing words like SEO and media kits being thrown around and I had no clue what it all meant.
Most things are overwhelming when you first start them, which is why I want to create this knowledge hub. So that it’s a place to go when bloggers have questions and they’re struggling to find the answers to.Read more
I think we can all agree that Holiday stress is a real thing. The Holidays can be so stressful, there’s so much to do and buy and make and you only have a limited amount of time. So many people put pressure on themselves at Christmas, they think they have to go big or go home, and thats just not true. Its always good to remember the reason for the season, and remind yourselves that not everything has to be perfect.
Not only is there stress at Christmas but I think there’s alot of expectation too. We put this expectation on ourselves and sometimes without even knowing it, we put it on others too. Today I will be sharing some tips on how you can create yourself a stress free Christmas! I hope you leave this post feeling more positive and relaxed about the festive season! So Let’s get into the tips!Read more
At one point we were all a new blogger, struggling to navigate the site we just signed up to and trying to figure out what to even write about. We have all been there, and it really can be a struggle sometimes. Before I was a blogger I’d come across so many beautiful and professional looking sites whilst trying to find one of my favourite cookie recipes. I’d be in awe of the sleek designs and professional imagery I saw. I wondered how much time and effort was put into creating and maintaining a site like that.
We assume that people who have professional looking sites are long standing bloggers and have been in the business for a while, but thats not always true. I have blogging friends who have beautiful looking sites who just posted their first blog a month ago. It’s really all down to the time and effort the individual puts into their website.Read more
