10 Things Bloggers Do Besides Writing Blog Posts

  • April 9, 2018

You might have noticed that I haven’t blogged as much lately – I’ve gone from churning out 3 posts a week at the start of the year to just about managing to publish one post a week lately. That’s not because I’ve been really busy with exciting stuff, unfortunately, nor is it because I’ve been slacking. I’ve been spending my ‘blogging time’ by doing some blog maintenance, general tidying up, >>

My Must Have Blogging Apps

  • January 27, 2017

When I started blogging I quickly realised that it’s bloody time consuming! There’s no such thing as a “quick blog post” and thinking of ideas for posts can take up a lot of time. Between work, school runs, and general life I’m not in front of my laptop until the evenings so if I have any ideas during the day I need to be able to make a note of them. These are >>

Helpful Tips For New Bloggers

  • January 9, 2017

I don’t think anyone really knows how much work is involved in blogging until they start a blog themselves. You might think it’s just a case of writing a post and pressing publish, but there’s so much more to it than that!

Why all bloggers should use Google Analytics

If you’re not using Google Analytics for your blog then you definitely should be. All bloggers should use Google Analytics. I’ve been quite surprised at how many bloggers I’ve spoken to who aren’t using Google Analytics – many of who I consider as much more experienced and successful bloggers than little me. Without the stats you can get from Google Analytics you really are missing out on a whole lot of valuable >>

Happy Blog Birthday To Me!

  • August 15, 2016

I’ve just realised that I’ve been blogging for a year. Happy blog birthday to me! I started my blog because I had freelance clients asking me for advice on blogging so thought I’d better practice what I was preaching. I’ve enjoyed blogging a lot more than I thought I would and I’m quite pleased with how it has gone. I’m nowhere near as successful as many other blogs I read >>

10 Tips On Being An Organised Blogger

  • June 9, 2016

To say blogging is time-consuming is an understatement – it can easily fill up your spare time if you let it. Unless you’re lucky enough to be a professional blogger you’ll most likely have to fit blogging around a job or taking care of the kids, and sometimes managing to be an organised blogger just doesn’t happen. As I work every day and only really have evenings to write, I have to get >>

10 Free Websites To Source Images For Your Blog

  • April 26, 2016

I don’t know about you but I spend more time trying to find decent images for some of my blog posts than actually writing the articles in the first place! I try to use my own photos where I can, but for some subjects, it’s just not possible. You need to be very careful when sourcing images to use on your own website. Taking photos from other people’s sites (and even >>
