Income and Stats Report for September 2017

I apologise for being a few days late with last month’s income report. I’ve had so much work on it’s been nigh on impossible to keep up. Plus last week baby girl was really ill. The worst she has ever been. She had some horrendous virus that caused a high temperature and vomiting then a horrid rash came out. I had to take time off from my day job at short notice which isn’t the best. I don’t get paid if I don’t go in.  Luckily when baby girl was napping I cracked on with some blog work to cover my loss in wages.

Anyway here we are at my Income and Stats report for September 2017.

(If you never caught up with last month’s you can find that one here)

Need More Blog Views? Become an Expert

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.

How To Stay In Contact With Your Overseas Family and Friends

In this day and age, we often have friends spread all the way across the world. Whether your old best friend from high school moved to the other side of the country or your internet friend’s always lived five thousand miles away, it can be hard to stay in contact when you all have your own families and busy lives to get on with.

It’s not only friends that are spread around the world, but family as well.

My older sister lives in Canada and with the 8 hour time difference it can be hard to keep in touch. But we love to Facetime and text as often as we can.

Here are some tips to help you stay in contact with the people you care about the most…

Keep In Closer Contact With Loved Ones In The New Year

A good support network is crucial regardless of what stage of life you’re at. For children, spending time with family teaches them key socialisation which they need to succeed in the world, as well as comfort and stability. For adults, friends and relatives can offer advice and assistance during hard times; these are the people you will both laugh with and cry with. For older adults and seniors, friends and family might be their only contact with the outside world. The people in your life are far more important than money or possessions, so make the time to maintain connections with them. We all lead busy lives, but try to find the time where you can. If you know you’ve not made as much effort as you should make 2017 a year to change that!

A brand new year is the perfect time to reflect and make changes, and what better change than to spend more time with the people that matter most.

Family Gatherings

Birthdays and Christmases are the perfect excuse to get everyone together. Whenever there’s a special occasion, you could host a get-together and invite all of your loved ones. Celebrations are so much more special when you’re surrounded by your favourite people! It’s at times like these we tend to think about the people who are no longer with us. For those who have passed away, you could light a candle in their honor and say a few words about them to keep their memory alive. If there are family members you have lost contact with, you could consider using a family tracing service to get back in touch. If there are a lot of children in the family, you could put together days for them, hire a bouncy castle and some inflatables when the weather is nice or host an Easter egg hunt at Easter for example.
