I accidentally developed a Youtube obsession. It all started when I decided to waste a bit of time during these never ending lockdowns. What started as a time waster, has turned into a favourite part of my day. It sounds silly but I just love getting into bed in the evening and watching some of my favourite youtubers.
Recently I’ve been watching a lot of videos about vintage fashion, cottagecore, books and home decor. I do love other types of content too and I will watch all sorts, but those are the most common for me to watch recently.
Anyway, here are some of the youtubers that I’ve been watching recently..
Twitter is probably my all time favourite social media. Instagram is great, don’t get me wrong. But on Twitter, I can tweet random rubbish and there’s no pressure to make it perfect like I sometimes feel with Instagram.
My One of my favourite things about Twitter is how quickly it moves. I love that one second I can tweet about a film and the next second I can tweet about travel. There’s not really much pressure to niche down on Twitter and I just love that. If you’ve been to my blog before then you’ve probably noticed that finding a niche isn’t my strong point.
So yeah, Twitter is fun, good for growing your online brand and it’s a fab way to make some new friends too. But… what do you tweet about when you feel like you have nothing to say?
Ah, social media. My favourite way to waste hours of my day.
Back at the start of 2020 (which feels like a lifetime ago), I shared my 2020 social media strategies. I’m not really sure if they helped me all that much during the year, but that’s not going to stop me from sharing my social media plans for 2021.
Social media is becoming very overwhelming these days. There’s topics that are becoming more actively spoken about and those topics can be rather triggering. Some people might need to take a social media break and some people feel completely fine to carry on using their accounts as normal. All reactions are valid and you’ve got to do what’s best for you.
Personally, social media is my life. I don’t have many friends or family so social media is how I talk to people and see what is happening in the world. If I take that away from myself then I would probably feel completely lost. That’s what I decided to be more mindful of my social media uses.
Whether you find social media triggering or you just want to be more aware of your social media usage, mindfulness practises are important for anyone online.
Instagram is such a huge online platform so it only makes sense to make the most of it when you’re trying to grow your online life. Instagram stories just keep on getting better so there’s no time to wait when it comes to using them.
Whether you use Instagram for fun, or you use it to grow a business, there’s so much you can do on Instagram stories so I thought that I would show you just a few ideas that I have.
I really don’t know why but starting my day with a photo of my ‘waking up’ view is super satisfying. You might not think the same but that’s what is so wonderful about Instagram stories. You can post whatever you want.
I also find that I’m way more active on Instagram stories that day if I upload pretty much as soon as I wake up.
Easter Eggs are starting to fill the shop shelves. At first, people were confused as why they were arriving so early and I was too. Now, I’m just enjoying that fact that the creme eggs are back!
If you’re a blogger, you might want to write a few Easter themed blog posts this year. I plan on writing a few myself which is where this list came from.
I was just planning all my future blog posts and I made a huge list of blog post ideas for each event or holiday that came up. Since Easter is on it’s way, I thought I would share my post ideas just incase you wish to write about any of these too.
If you’re a blogger then you might be able to understand what blogger block is like. You’re in the mood to write a post but what do you write about?!
Blogger block doesn’t care whether you’re a new blogging, older blogger or a part time blogger. It also doesn’t care what genre your write. If you’re a writer of any kind, you are likely to face-to-face with blogger block at some point.
There’s no way that you can stop blogger block but you can prepare yourself for when it hits by having some post ideas jotted down.
Twitter is one of the biggest social media platforms. There are 330 million monthly active users and 145 million daily active users on Twitter. With so many users, it’s pretty easy to see why businesses and brands can benefit from using the platform.
When you’re just a small blogger, the biggest question is how can you get some of those 330 million users to notice your account and engage with you.
Most bloggers head into Twitter with such enthusiasm which is great. The problem only comes when you seem to be pumping out a lot of content and no one seems to be noticing.
Building a following on any social media platform can take time and a lot of work. There are definitely strategies that can help you increase your Twitter engagement, leading to more clicks, increased brand awareness, and more conversions.
