Powerfully Unique Ways To Monetise A Reputable Blog

Are you a leader in your sector? Does your blog generate traffic on a daily basis? There are lots of men and women who can answer yes to both questions. Unfortunately, it doesn’t guarantee success from a monetary point of view. Although it won’t appear that way, some of your favourite blogs will struggle to make ends meet.

I’m A Blogger: Does That Mean If I Mention A Brand Etc I Should Be Paid NO!

The world of blogging and vlogging entered a new low over the last couple of weeks in my humble opinion. Of course, I’m talking about the Irish hotel owner versus the vlogger. What it highlighted for me was how the nature of the blogging and vlogging world has changed since I first started three years ago. I’m not going to comment on that particular situation because I’m sure enough has already been said, and quite honestly there appears to me to be fault on both sides, but hey ho! What fantastic exposure both have received from what was a ridiculous… [Read More]

3 Rules for Bloggers to Live By

Blogging is something that we have all grown used to but when you think about it, the process is pretty weird. For lots of people, blogging is about sharing thoughts on their personal lives and families, for others blogging is about sharing tips and tricks or showing expertise and for most, blogging falls somewhere in between.

I’m In Awe Of Full-Time Bloggers

I have total admiration for anybody that decides to blog full-time to earn their living and make it their sole income. It’s a very brave move and one that I’m not sure I would take. However, there were times last year when I could have been tempted to make that leap, but for a few reasons I didn’t. 2017 was definitely an eye opener for me. The opportunities that have come my way have certainly made me at times think that I could do this for a full-time living. Around March of 2017 the opportunities started to arrive in my… [Read More]

Where Has The Blog Love Gone?

2017 was the year that I saw a dramatic change in the world of blogging. There seemed to be a considerable rise in having a go at each other on social media. For the life of me I don’t understand why? Blogging, I have always thought, was a community we were all proud to be a part of. To support and help each other, but 2017 seemed to change where it was the norm to jump on people if they made a mistake or wrote something that was considered controversial. What actually amazes me is that this can all be… [Read More]

My Favourite Bloggers Of 2017

During the course of a year I read a lot of blog posts. Part of the reason for this is because I run a linky with my wife, Emily, who blogs at Twin Mummy And Daddy. It never ceases to amaze me how many people blog, and the linky so often is a great way to find new and exciting bloggers. This post is all about five particular bloggers that I normally read everything they write. So, without waiting anymore, here are my five favourite bloggers of 2017 and they are in no particular order. 1. Five Little Doves, written… [Read More]

Blogging Gave Me My Voice

It’s been an interesting journey on my blog over the last three years, but one thing I have learnt about myself is that its given me my voice. This is something I have struggled with all my life, through a lack of self confidence. I have always been very socially awkward, when I am on a one to one basis with other people. I have always felt comfortable, but put me with a large group of people and I mean usually more than three other people and panic and anxiety sets in very quickly. It all comes very difficult for… [Read More]

What A Year 2017

I have been writing my blog for three years and one month, and this year something changed that I still find difficult to get my head around. It has gone from what was purely a hobby, into a small, but relatively profitable business. I have to admit that even in my wildest dreams I never expected to earning a penny from my blog let alone some of the fantastic opportunities that I have received because of my blog this year. This year when it started, I didn’t really have any goals or ambitions for my blog, which in all honesty… [Read More]
