Halloween is nearly here which can only mean one thing… it’s time to read some spooky books!
Obviously Halloween means other exciting things too like scary movies, lots of sweets and trick or treating, but the best part of it all is books, so let’s focus on that.
I’m an absolute wuss. This doesn’t change when it comes to the books I read either. But when Halloween comes around, I’m always inclined to pick up something that’s a little bit more on the creepy side than my usual book choices.
But that doesn’t mean I’m going to dive head first into the horror section.
This post will only have one true horror book. I could have gone wild and added more, but that’s just not my thing. I like a spooky book that will put me in the Halloween mood, not a book that will give me nightmares for the next year.
So, if you’re into extremely scary books, this probably isn’t the post for you and I’m sure another blogger will have written a great post more suitable for you. But if you’re into mildly creepy books, then read on..
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.
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.
I think we all have an inbuilt desire to be productive. We have goals and we hope to reach them as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, if you’re not born into a super rich family or you don’t have all the luck in the world, then you’ll probably have to work for your goals.
If you’re anything like me, then as soon as you’ve found a new goal or dream and you’ve settled on it, then you’ll want to get working on it right away. You’ll be making a list of everything that needs to get done. You’ll be thinking of ways to make it all perfect. Sound familiar? It probably does and that’s because we have all been there.
I think the problem is that we all want to be seen as ‘being productive’. We want to be known as the one who ‘get’s stuff done’. There’s a problem with this mindset though; When do we rest and reset if we are always being productive?!
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.
