Blogging B*tches

I love a good rant. Who doesn’t? However, as a blogger, I find it fascinating when bloggers call other bloggers out. This doesn’t just apply to female bloggers. Oh no! Male bloggers are just as bad and just as bitchy as us ladies, if not more so at times! Yes, that’s right, I’m calling time! Time on the bitchiness! If you’re a blogger, social media influencer, online celebrity, whatever you want to call yourself, as nowadays bloggers call themselves all sorts to try and get ahead. “So you’re a professional blogger….ok then…moving on swiftly…” We love a moan! The bitchier,… [Read More]

Snooping and Spying on other People’s lives

We all love a bit of celebrity gossip. So much so that we’ll actually invest in it by buying magazines with enticing titles that lure us into the world of snooping. I think us Brits are a fairly nosey nation. Who doesn’t want to know about their neighbours money problems or why next doors son was seen sneaking out of the house at 1am? We’re also a nation of two-facedness – is that even a word? I’m not sure, but it’s the one I’m going to use! As I said above, we love a bit of celebrity gossip. In fact… [Read More]

SEO for bloggers

As a blogger I’ve heard the term SEO bandied around quite a lot. On twitter, various Facebook blogging groups and forums. If you’re a new blogger it can be quite intimidating trying to keep up with keywords, SEO and monetisation, but it’s really quite simple. SEO is an abbreviation of Search Engine Optimisation, which is basically the process of affecting the visibility of a website or web page in a search engines unpaid results (also known as organic results).  The idea is to get to the top of the first page of google without having to pay for it. If you’re at… [Read More]

A Bloggers Child

As a blogger my children benefit from certain aspects of my blog. Days out, reviews and various experiences are all a part of what being a blogger is all about. Something I often struggle with though is where to draw the line when it comes to products I’ve been gifted in return for a review. In particular toys. We love getting toys to review. Trying out the newest and latest products is lots of fun and it means we learn all about them and get to share them here with you, our readers. The thing is though I often wonder… [Read More]

Bloggers – You need to read this! Interview with a PR/Digital Marketing Manager

Bethanie is a PR/Digital Marketing Manager in a creative search agency. She’s also a blogger and she lives in Newcastle. Interview What is your ideal blogger and what makes a blogger stand out and get noticed? An ideal blogger for me is someone who has a combination of what I believe are ‘good’ qualities.  The first is an up to date blog with a good balance of natural and sponsored content (same goes with banner ads). The second is being friendly, and time-aware. Third is passion for it – if I send you an email offering something for review, I’d… [Read More]

Bloggers Secret Santa

Last Christmas I sat and watched as lots of bloggers took part in a bloggers Secret Santa. It looked like fun, so this year I decided i organise one for some of the bloggers in my Facebook group. Mine arrived a while ago and it’s just been staring at me ever since! I’ve been very tempted to open it, but I’ve waited until the other bloggers received theirs too. The idea was to look at the blog of the person you’d been given and try to buy them something you think they’d like. Our budget was £10. I don’t know… [Read More]
