I’ve been feeling a bit “meh” of late, so when I was recently tagged by the lovely Lyndsay over at Fizzy Peaches to write a 10 things that me happy post, I figured it would be good for me to take time out to remember there are still things out there that make me happy and make me smile 🙂
I’m not by any means an expert and I’m only really going by the things I’ve learnt since I started, but a few of my friends have started blogging recently and asked for tips, so here’s my guide on starting a blog!
You know sometimes when you’re sitting with your regular friends, you start talking about blogging and they just don’t get it? And although I love my friends, I’ve come to realise that there are so many awesome reasons to have other bloggers as friends. So I thought I’d share my list about why I think bloggers make the best friends (apart from a few of my closest non-blogger friends of course!)
Last month I wrote a post about my Twitter pet peeves (you can catch up here if you’ve not read it yet). It seemed to be a really popular post and loads of you were in agreement (luckily, else I could have been banished from Twitter forever!! #overexaggeration.)
A few people mentioned that there were loads of irritating things about Instagram as well, so I thought I’d do a post about that!
Last year I wrote a pretty popular post about why I’m unlikely to follow you on Twitter. I honestly didn’t think it would turn into my most read post; but there we go! If you wanna have a nosey, you can read it here.
So this is kind of a continuation, except now that I’ve been avidly using Twitter for the last year and a half, here are some of my Twitter pet peeves.
I thought I’d get this one in early because last year I left it quite late, and I didn’t write my blog goals until November, oops!
If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, it’s basically just a list of blog-related goals that I want to achieve in 2017. Then at the end of the year, I look back at this list and see how I’ve got on! 🙂
So it’s the end of the year and if you follow me on here, you’ll know that a while ago I wrote a post with a list of blog goals I wanted to achieve by the end of 2016. Well, how did I get on?
Rather than doing a December favourites, I thought I’d do a general round-up of my year and share some of the lovely things that happened to me in 2016 (most of them blog-related!) 🙂
Even though there are quite a few posts out there regarding no-follow links, I still see loads of people posting on blogging forums asking what they are, how to use them, why you should use them and what happens if you don’t.
So I’m going to explain it in my own Holly style of writing and hope to hell I make some sort of sense! You might want to go and make a cuppa before I start…
Since I started going to blog meets and events at the beginning of this year, I’ve accumulated about 6 drawers full of goodies! I always mean to get around to trying everything, but life and being
forgetful lazy gets in the way. So I thought if I made blog posts out of it, I’d probably actually make an effort to try out some of the bits and let you know what they’re like!
