  • May 15, 2017

It’s that time of the year again. The blogging award nominations are open and bloggers across social media are asking for your votes. I’m not going to ask for your votes though, mainly because I know I’d never win! Here’s why I won’t win an award for blogging: I’m not funny I’m not sweary I don’t take enough selfies I don’t have loads of blogging friends I don’t write about >>

  • 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.

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.

  • March 31, 2016

I’ve been blogging for 7 months now, and in this short time, I’ve learnt an incredible amount.

I don’t think that “non-bloggers” appreciate how much work goes into it, I certainly didn’t before I started. I >>
