Things To Look Out For in the Blogging World

This big ol’ blogging world can be a tough one to navigate at times. Even with 6 years (6 YEARS CAN YOU ADAM AND EVE IT?!) of experience under my belt; writing little book reviews as a side hobby at first, owning a business which required working with a lot of bloggers, then blogging as […]

2019 Q&A: Blogging Dreams, My Perfect Day & How I Relax

Sometimes it’s the really simple posts which you crave to write. And that’s me right now. I can’t be arsed going off on a big ol’ tangent about anything. I can’t be bothered critiquing a book or ranting about the blogging community (I mean… not that there’s anything to rant about because it’s practically perfect […]

My Most Viewed Posts of 2018

Last year, I wrote about my most popular posts from January 2018 compared to the ones I enjoyed writing the most – a brilliant idea straight up stolen from the lovely Sophie from Glowsteady.

How and where to find blogging opportunities

#AD I’ve had this blog post idea jotted down on the notes on my phone for months but I’ve kept taking it off and putting it back over and over again because I’ve been completely unsure whether it’d be useful or if I’d just be repeating myself and a huge waste of time. But I […]

Things To Consider When Creating a Blogging Resource *

#AD Back in October last year, I created and released by very first blogging resource, my Beginner’s Guide to Blogging eBook. I worked incredibly hard on this for a month but I didn’t realise quite how much I’d have to do and consider when it came to creating it. I knew I’d have to write […]

Things to consider before taking on a blogging challenge

If you’ve been in the blogging world for any amount of time, it’s likely that you’ve stumbled across someone talking about or taking part in blogmas or blogtober, a month-long blogging challenge that requires you to post every day for a month (obviously). I’m not quite sure of the technicalities of each one (like if […]

Blogging Goals for 2019 [ft. Yankee Candle]

#GIFTED I guess before I start, I’d better say… Happy New Year! I really enjoyed those 7 weeks of 2018 and truly cannot believe that we’re here, once more, saying hello to a brand new year. It’s funny, you’d think nobody understood how time worked with how shocked and appalled we all are at how […]

2018 Reflections: Personal highlights, blogging, notable movies & more!

Another year, another yearly reflections post. Can you honestly believe that we’re done with 2018 already? This has without a doubt been the quickest year I have ever experienced. It feels like Christmas 2017 was only a month ago, Easter was last week and Summer ended only a mere few days ago. But just like […]

Growing your blog as a business

I’ve had the idea for this post sitting in the notes on my phone for literally months now but haven’t taken the plunge (plunge… isn’t that a brilliant word) to actually sit down and write it yet. Partly because there’s a lot of information involved and I’m a bit overwhelmed at where to start and […]

Staying organised as a blogger

I’m going to start this post with a bit of self-praise, which is something I never, ever do. But the thing I like the most about myself is how organised I am, my organisational skills and my ability to stick to deadlines, work ahead of schedule and generally just never get in a flap about […]

6 ways to make yourself more attractive to brands

Working with brands has become a huge part of being a blogger. Brands are recognizing that bloggers have a lot of authority and power over sales and marketing and a shining review from a blogger can go an awful long way. I’m not ashamed to say that working with some kick-ass brands is one of […]

Q&A; Blogging, dreams, books & travel!

Good morning folks. It’s been a hot minute since I did a Q&A around here where the questions came from actual people on Twitter (as opposed to my Random Question Generator Q&A) and my blog followers have grown quite considerably since then. So if you’re new around here, first of all, hi! I’m so glad […]

Your one-stop-shop for blogging advice

Each and every month when I check my stats on my WordPress app, sitting at the top of my “most views” posts during that month are always blogging-related posts. These tend to be advice style posts and occasionally blogging related discussions but you can bet your bottom dollar that posts about blogging are almost always […]

The follow for follow mentality in blogging

I want to talk about something. Something which has become more and more prominent in the blogging world over the last few years. At least for me anyway – it’s probably been like this for far longer but perhaps I haven’t been paying attention. It’s something I see almost on a daily basis; on Twitter […]

Behind the blogging mask

We’re all aware of the fact that social media doesn’t always necessarily give us an accurate portrayal into someone’s life. We’ve all been that person to swoon and lust after someone else’s Instagram only to be reminded by some wise Pinterest quote that we’re only seeing their highlight reel – not their every day. It […]
