A Chatty Catch-Up | February

Oh jeez, where to start with February??  Well, I spent the first two weeks of it off work, feeling incredibly dizzy and sick!!  I was in bed for most of the mornings with the TV on quietly as a distraction, then had a quick shower and flumped on the sofa with a blanket for the afternoons; Dog Rescuers with Alan Davies has become one of my new favourite shows!!

A Chatty Catch-Up | October

If you follow me on social media and regularly read my blog, you’ll know that things went a little quiet last month. I decided to take some down-time from blogging to concentrate on some real-life projects I’d been neglecting. Every weekend is usually spent taking blog photos, editing them and proof-reading blog posts for the next week, so it was lovely not to have to worry about any of that for a while.

YouTubers You Need To Follow

I find there’s something quite comforting about watching vlogs, getting a snapshot into someone’s life and seeing how different or similar it is to mine; I think they’re my favourite kind of video tbh. As I’ve recently found some fab new Youtube accounts to watch, I thought I’d do a post on my current faves.

No-Follow Links Explained

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…

My Blog Goals 2016

I can’t believe it’s been well over a year since I started blogging, it seems like only yesterday I was writing my first blog post. So many exciting things have already happened in that time (making awesome new friends, going to amazing events, even being nominated for an award!) but I really wanted to write down a list of personal goals to work towards for the end of the year (which is now ridiculously close) and see how many of them happen! I’ll write an update in January 🙂

If you didn’t know, seriously where have you been because I put it absolutely everywhere, I was shortlisted for the Social Media Hero Award at the recent Thirty Plus awards! I decided I was going to head up there for the ceremony, and who better to take with me for moral support and all the craic but fellow thirty plus blogger, Aine. Yeah. Her. Again.

Blogging | One Year On

I can’t believe how fast a year has gone. I wrote my first, and pretty shit if I’m being completely honest, blog post on 6th August 2015. You can read it here if you really feel the need to 😛 When I started I didn’t really have any idea what I was going to write about, how my blog would evolve or that I’d keep writing posts so regularly.

Big Blogger Expo 2016

Two weeks ago I met up with the brilliant Aine (Honestly Aine) in London and we made our way to the Danubis Hotel in Regent’s Park for the Big Blogger Expo 2016. (Although we obviously stopped at 221B Baker Street too, because it would be rude not to!)

The Big Blogger Expo was set up by Lauren from Blonde Vision (who also runs Ldnmeetup) and it’s a great way to network with brands and bloggers.
