How I started blogging 

I had been fired from my job, or as I like to call it, “the mutual break up”, and I realised I did not want to go into another mind-numbing job. I wanted to do something for myself that would make me feel better by letting me connect with others and express myself. I started writing some stuff, got on WordPress, made an Instagram and Twitter and here I am. 

Two pieces of advice

  • Don’t let it stress you out. As much as you may love it, having yourself glued to your phone/laptop screen may cause your brain to fry a little. I’m letting you know that it’s okay to take some time to yourself, go recharge and then come back to creating an amazing blog with great content. 
  • I feel like such a newb for this one but… Pinterest is like the best?! So I’ve had one for years but I never used it, and I’ve only just started using it for blogging. It’s a great way to find inspiration.

    Congrats on your nomination and thanks for sharing your advice! How do you find Pinterest compares to other social media platforms (like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) in terms of connecting with other bloggers and driving traffic to your site? I always hear such great things about using Pinterest for blogging, so I am super curious.

    Thank you so much for the nomination lovely! xx I love the advice. I agree but it’s so hard to do at the same time! I feel like I must be on my phone and on my blog all the time since I started blogging. I can’t wait to write this up! 🙂

  3. So what actually is your job ? Are you a freelance writer ? I’m impressed with the ‘get up and go’ attitude. I think technology these days does make many more dreams possible – which is an amazing thing.
