Blogging Everything They Don’t Tell You:
Blogging seems to be lurking at every corner these days, with at least one or two people you know spouting knowledge about health, sharing recipes or traveling around the world. Eventually, you might be tempted to start your own blog and to see what the world of blogging has to offer. But before you do, let’s talk through some of the things no one tells you when you start blogging.
Well August was over pretty darn fast wasn’t it? Here we are at the start of September, one of my favourite months. Plus it’s only 16 weeks until Christmas!!!
August was a pretty good month for me income wise. I have read that a lot of bloggers find the Summer months slower and I can honestly say I didn’t find this the case for me.
I have been busy planning my Halloween posts for October and also planning what I intend to do with my Christmas Gift Guide this year. Last year I did a kid’s and a women’s and found it a lot of hard work. This year I’m just planning the kid’s gift guide and I have to say I have some lovely bits already to review ready to go in.
TIP: You can never plan too early so get those request’s out!
Not only does mobile technology have a massive effect on the way that we interact with each other, but also so is social media affecting how we exchange ideas and communicate with each other. As such, it is essential that both of these technologies embrace together and allow us to keep up with our interactions while we are on the go. With so much business taking place on mobile devices, it is entirely natural to embrace your social media and have links to these in your email signature.
Here is my Income and Stats Report for July 2017
I have been thinking for a long long while about posting my income report, I wasn’t sure if it would be welcome. I’m not one to brag either, TBH I don’t have a lot to brag about. I work hard to earn the few pounds I make on here. You see as well as running my blog I work nearly full time in my day job as well, so I try and use my time (the little time I have) effectively.
I learned a lot from Aby’s Project Productivity course on how to bulk tasks in one job lot. For example I plan what posts I have going out in the week and make sure I do all the photos for the reviews and what not in one go.
All of us bloggers want a beautiful blog that carefully reflects our personality, one of the best ways to tailor the look and design of your website is to be an expert in code so that you can carefully tweak its appearance. However, there is one downside to this – we don’t all have the time to learn everything about coding!
Thankfully, all is not lost, and you can still create a pretty blog.
People may have expected blogs to have dropped in popularity in favour of YouTube commentaries, but the truth is that we’re reading blogs more than ever. Of course, if you’re looking to start your own blog, or want to improve one you’ve already started, then you need to think about why people are still visiting blogs so regularly. Well, it’s the same reason that most people read anything; because they want to be informed.
