Preparing To Blog

When I started blogging 7 years years ago, yes that long ago. I was blogging on Blogspot and found the platform difficult to navigate unless I used my computer. I even gave Tumblr a go, as well as a hosted blog on my old website. They all have their merits but didn’t work for me at the time.
Fast forward to 2018 and I blog from WordPress. I miagrated my content over from Blogspot. What I did notice was I getting some great blogging ideas and they would languish in my drafts. This includes going to photography meet ups and involvement with Instagram challenges. When I last looked there was 35!

So I am going to look through and see what can be published and delete the rest. These posts won’t be posted on my front page, but I will refer back to them throughout the year.

Now, so this doesn’t continue to happen do you have any tips, tricks or suggestions to help plan my blog posts better? I do have a Pinterest board with blogging tips, but I find there is a lot advice based in the US. There’s nothing wrong with this at all, I am asking with the hope bloggers and readers will reach out.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

2015 Goodbye, 2016 Hi

Where did you go 2015?  Reflecting on a year of ups and downs.

One main thing was going into hospital for another laparoscopy.  I have recovered really well but still in pain so will be looking for answers in 2016.  This might involve more dietary changes and drinking more water is one of them.

2015 gave me the opportunity to eat at some lovely places and there is still some content to be loaded.

My word for 2016 is consistency, rather than setting resolutions. I want to gain more consistency over all aspects of my life, this includes my blogging.

So thank you for reading my ramblings and keep your eyes peeled for more.
