Have you been thinking of starting a YouTube channel? Or perhaps you’ve already picked up your camera. Jules from The Giggles Family is starting the conversation on staying safe on YouTube. So many bloggers are adding to their creative bow by turning their hand to making YouTube videos. Before you start sharing your life on […]
We all know about hackers. They are a bane of a blogger’s life. A long time ago, a hacker managed to get into one of my blogs and completely destroy it. It was horrible. There was nothing I could do except scrap everything and start again. So security of your blog is paramount if you don’t […]
Adam Kirkup and his wife Sarah blog at www.fourfortheroad.co.uk. They use Canva, the free online design tool, to make all their graphics. In this guest post, Adam talks about how to use Canva and why he loves it to make blog graphics. Adam says, “I’m not being paid by Canva. I just think it’s a […]
Well, we have all had a nice two week’s holiday from the stress and strain of school runs, after school play dates and lessons and, for many of us, a two week holiday from blogging and social media. It is difficult to balance the daily challenges of our children being at home during a holiday […]
Welcome back to the third instalment of the Embrace Happy Blogger Challenge. It’s Week Three and hopefully you have learned to Block the Stats, have done a thorough Spring clean of your social media accounts and really looked at who you follow? You should be feeling a bit lighter and brighter so now is the […]
Can you read your blog properly on your smartphone? What do you see when you look at it? Do your posts show as linked headlines, or is the whole blog squeezed into the tiny space your screen offers? If it’s the former, your blog is using a mobile-friendly theme. If it’s the latter, you’re going to […]
Important question: Is your site mobile-optimised? This is no longer simply a nice feature to have. Starting this month, it could be key to your blog getting seen. On April 21 Google is updating its algorithm, making mobile-friendliness a more important factor in search results. It’s unclear exactly how what its repercussions will be, but […]
Hopefully after last week’s challenge, Block the Stats, you are feeling slightly more free from constraints. Blogging these days is an uphill battle to be read, noticed, shared and respected. Back in 2009 there were a few hundred British Lifestyle/Parent Blogs, now there are thousands. And with that rise in the amount of blogs, the […]
You’ve been blogging for a) a couple of months; b) too many years to count; c) 3 years, 8 months, 42 weeks and 17 days and you’re beginning to feel a bit lost. All bloggers experience this feeling at some point in their blogging career so feel secure in the fact that you are not […]
At the weekend, I did something that I found really scary. I am the Queen of Self Doubt, but hell, sometimes it’s good to put yourself out there. “Feel the fear and do it anyway” to quote Susan Jeffers. I spoke at a blogging conference about working with brands. Now, I am no expert at […]
I’ve just published my first ever book. It’s called A modern father (…and dad blogger) and it focuses on my life as a stay at home dad. As the title suggests, however, I couldn’t resist writing just a little about being a dad blogger. Getting the book into print has taken over my life and […]
This is a very controversial subject. I know I shall probably be stepping on a lot of people’s toes. But I don’t care. I’ve always maintained that good spelling and grammar is essential in communication tactics, and blogging is certainly part of that activity! Now I’m not going to give you a lesson in how […]
Hello January and hello new bloggers. January is traditionally the month of ‘taking up new things’ resolutions and fresh starts. If you’ve started a blog; hello and welcome to the world of blogging. How are you finding it? It can be a little overwhelming at first, technically and simply by the sheer numbers of blogs […]
If you sell digital products, and you haven’t heard about #VATMOSS (or #VATMESS as some are calling it), then you are either so incredibly busy you haven’t had time to come up for air, or you’ve been holidaying somewhere in deepest, darkest Africa. If the answer is that you haven’t, it’s definitely time you caught up! […]
You all know that a blog contains posts. That’s what it’s mainly for. And magically they appear on your blog’s first page in all their glory! But, what if you wanted to treat your blog as a website, and have a front page that was different from the post listings page? (This will only be […]
