Thoughts on blogging trends and technologies

A few weeks ago I hosted the #lbloggers chat because I wanted to talk about blogging trends and technologies. I've always been a bit of an 'old-school' blogger because I like to stick to basic posts with words and photos. I am working on upping my game with photography but I have no interest in… Continue reading Thoughts on blogging trends and technologies

I hosted the #lbloggers chat last week and it inspired the lovely Gwennan to write a post. I've got a… Continue reading Saturday Share #105

The #lbloggers chat: Full-time blogging vs hobby blogging with @TinkerbellJayne

Last week's chat was hosted by Tink Jayne, who was shortlisted for Best Lifestyle Blog at the Cosmo Blog Awards this year. So a great chat was guaranteed! I loved reading people's origin stories.

The #lbloggers chat: Writer’s block with @SpottedSunshine

Contrary to what some might believe, bloggers are writers and we all experience writer's block from time to time. As a former film blogger, I used to hit a bit of a wall from time to time but as a lifestyle blogger, there's always something to write about. Of course, if if you're too focussed… Continue reading The #lbloggers chat: Writer’s block with @SpottedSunshine

The #lbloggers chat: Making the most of social media with @BeckyBedbug

Last week's #lbloggers chat was hosted by one of my favourite bloggers: Becky, from Becky Bedbug. And it was on a topic that has been on my mind recently: social media. It's something that we all use and therefore think we know a lot about it but we're not using it to its full potential.… Continue reading The #lbloggers chat: Making the most of social media with @BeckyBedbug

The #lbloggers chat: Growing your blog with @allisonleighann

Following last week's more conversational, getting-to-know-you chat, this week's chat gave bloggers the chance to share tips on growing your blog. There were, of course, the usual 'I'm not in this for the views', 'bloggers shouldn't want to make money' and 'blog about what you love and the rest will fall into place' but 99%… Continue reading The #lbloggers chat: Growing your blog with @allisonleighann

The #lbloggers chat: The golden rules of blogging with @Lisaheartslife

This week's #lbloggers chat, hosted by @Lisaheartslife, was about the golden rules of blogging. It was a chat which sparked quite the debate - and early on too - with bloggers quickly falling into one of two camps: 1. there are no rules - your blog is your own to do with as you wish… Continue reading The #lbloggers chat: The golden rules of blogging with @Lisaheartslife
