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 […]
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.

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.

It all kicked off with Oreos. Several popular vloggers were sent biscuits and, working with Oreo, challenged their viewers to an Oreo lick race. The resulting content has prompted the Advertising Standards Agency to respond. The ASA has put out a statement reiterating that online content advertising or promoting a product or service needs to […]
We all like to be liked. It’s in our human psyche to feel wanted and accepted. And this has no exception when it comes to blogging.
