Movie of your life tag

Earlier this month I was tagged by Lianne from Mrs Mummy Harris in the ‘Movie of your life’ tag. As an avid movie fan I was keen to take part! So here goes… 1. Who would play you in the movie and why? I’d love for someone like Jennifer Aniston to play me in the movie. Originally I thought about Angelina Jolie, as I really admire her as well as her work ethic and outlook on life, but in reality, I think Jennifer would be a much better match as she comes across more of a free spirit and as… [Read More]

Tips to Help Bloggers Overcome Writers Block

I’ve been blogging for almost five years and up until now I’ve been fairly lucky in terms of thinking of things to write about. I’ve never suffered from writers block. I always manage to think up things to write about. Sometimes it might just come to me when I’m drifting off to sleep, walking to work or even whilst I’m mid-conversation with someone. When I get an idea I tend to jot it down on the notepad of my phone as soon as possible so that I don’t forget it. I have a terrible memory! Aside from writing reviews and… [Read More]

A day in the life of a blogger

Blogging means different things to different people. To some it’s a hobby that they enjoy doing once in a while, whereas to others it’s a business that can earn them some nice money. To me, it’s a bit of both. I work two days a week and then for the remaining three days of the working week whilst our twins are in school, I blog. Some people struggle to understand what this means and how I can spend three days sat in front of a laptop writing, but it’s a lot more than that. As such, I thought I’d write… [Read More]

Moving from Blogger to WordPress

Badge

I started blogging back in 2012. When I decided that I wanted to start blogging, I didn’t really do much research. I just typed ‘start a blog’ into Google one day and the ‘Blogger’ platform came up at the top of the list so that’s the one I chose to go with. Blogger was easy to use and didn’t require much technical knowledge. I dabbled into creating my own blog design, header, badge and social media icons using Pic Monkey, over the years, I got better at this. I learnt about HTML, follow and no-follow links, back links and SEO,… [Read More]
