4 months in the blogging world...

Here we are four months along in this blogging journey. I can honestly say that the 'novelty' isn't wearing off and in fact I am enjoying it more and more. It helps to have a bit more of a clue of what I am doing. Though, the more I learn about blogging the more there is I need to do towards this space! 

I am currently trying to get my head around SEO and sponsorship and disclosures. Disclosures came up in a #FBLChat on Twitter last week and I realised that I have very little knowledge about what it involves. If anyone happens to have a dummies guide to this then please leave a link in the comments!

As you may have noticed I invested in a new layout from pipdig which I am loving! It was really simple to install and apart from the issues with image sizes which could be completely down to me I haven't had any problems since I changed it! I would definitely recommend their services!

My blogging schedule is still a total work in progress! Mostly because what I do every day seems to be very much a seesaw depending on events that tend to be out of my control, but... I think I am getting there! I created a planner for myself which is definitely helping and I no longer discover I have the wrong notebook to hand! My day job has become a lot busier too so I have less time to ponder ideas! Hopefully from next week I will post 3 times a week - Monday, Wednesday & Friday... once I've got that sorted I will try to post more often.

Last month I reached 100 followers on Bloglovin' which I am really 'chuffed' about! Thank you so much to everyone who follows me! Thank you to everyone who comments as well! I love hearing from the people who are reading this small corner of the internet.

Top of my to do list:

1. Participate in a bloggers chat at least once a week (I seem to have kept missing them this month)

2. Update my 'About Me' page! Loads of people have been talking about this recently so while advice is fresh in my mind it seems a good moment to do it. Hopefully I will have it finalised by the end of the week! Watch this space!

3. Investigate a Favicon (the icon in the browsers address bar)

So, that's me and my blogging journey so far...  Please feel free to leave any comments on my corner of the internet.




  1. Great post! I'm also new to the blogging world so this post is also really helpful for me. This is my blog address: http://theridetohappiness.blogspot.co.uk/ :)

    1. I'm really glad it was helpful for you! Will check out your blog now :) x

  2. I've been blogging for about a year now and I'm feeling similarly. It's amazing and in so many ways, the blog (and me) has grown and improved so much in the past year, but there's still so so much that I need to work on. Currently trying to tackle the (long overdue) project of getting a self hosted domain.

    Any recommendations on ways to connect with other bloggers? That's another thing I've been trying to do more of! :)

    1. Checking out your blog now :).

      I try and be involved with twitter chats as much as possible to connect with other bloggers... I really want to go to a bloggers meet up but I haven't found one in my area to go to yet! I would really like to connect more. I find its so difficult to explain blogging to people who don't understand it. x


Thank you for commenting, I will reply asap :)
