Have you ever been asked why do you blog? Or why do you enjoy blogging so much? When I first started thinking about blogging and when I first started writing on my blog, I did it because I love writing. As I have continued to blog I have found more reasons why I love blogging.
Many bloggers are not blogging full-time and are working another job. I am one of these bloggers. I work as well as I running my blog, so I know first hand how hard it can be to balance life, work and run a blog.
Whether you are new to blogging or have been blogging for a while, it can be difficult to grow your blog and it does take a lot of hard work. Unfortunately, there is not a hidden secret to building a business overnight.
Success does not come overnight, there is no shortcut unfortunately. When I first started blogging I had the goal of collaborating with some stationery brands, for me working with brands I saw leading to a successful blog. A couple of years later and I am now being invited to events and working with some well known brands.
For a lot of bloggers being able to work with brands they love is a goal they would like to achieve. If you are new to blogging or haven’t worked with brands before it can be daunting and you can be left confused as to what your first step should be.
I have been extremely fortunate to work with some incredible brands and I am more than grateful. However, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been turned down or had e-mails ignored before. It unfortunately comes with the territory.
Do you ever look at other bloggers and wonder how they can get so much engagement on their blog posts? Do you want more engagement on your blog? I am sharing 4 reasons why you are not growing an engaged audience.

There is no right or wrong way of blogging, it is an individual journey, however there are certain blogging mishaps you will want to avoid making. I have been blogging for over 2 years and have seen these be visible within the blogging community. I thought I would shed some light on these mishaps, if you are new to blogging you are definitely going to want to avoid making these mistakes. There is still so much I am learning from my blogging journey and looking forward to learning more.
When I first started blogging up until about three months ago, I would blog whenever I had the inspiration and it would lack so much consistency with the days and times I was posting. Three months ago I decided to put a strict schedule in place for my blog and it has helped me stay organised. Having a schedule also means I can plan my blog content ahead of time. This way of working has been so helpful for me, it has been stress-free and I have been enjoying blogging so much more. I haven’t had the blind panic of what to post and what to write about, which is sometimes what used to happen ha ha!
I have been blogging for just over 2 years and I have learned so much about blogging but also about myself. When I first started I didn’t really know very much and just did as much research as I could. In keeping with helpful blogging posts this month, I am going to share some tips that I have found the most effective for growing my blog.
When I first started blogging and up until a few months ago, I didn’t have a strict schedule. Looking back I cringe at how badly I was running my blog. I would just post when I had content, which if you are trying to grow your audience is not the way to go about it.
