Happy Friday no.12...



Happy Friday everyone, how has your week been? This month is proving to be full of wonderful exciting things, and even though the sun has left us for now, here in a grey wet Blackburn, I have a REALLY good feeling about all the things to come this Summer! So before I fall into the usual weather/time flying by so fast blog hole, here is what has been making me happy in the last fortnight!

How to share the love as a blogger & why it's important...


I tend to stay away from 'how to' posts about blogging. Both in terms of writing them and in reading them. Why? Because, in all honesty, the technical parts of blogging, aren't why I'm here. Yes I would like lots of people reading my posts, but at the end of the day blogging is a hobby. A hobby that has taught me a certain amount of skills, including social media, photo editing, and to some extent analytics, but I have a full time career and freelance work too. 

Blogging is my happy place. My place to read and write and connect with other like minded people like you. It isn't a place I want to use as a gravy jug for adding 'extra shoulds' to my plate. When I have the time I like to delve in a little deeper, spruce up my design, improve, of course I do, but generally on a day to day basis, I come to the blog world to unwind in some way. To read and write and connect, not to look at statistics and look up definitions of terms I have no idea about. That's why I avoid 'how to' posts, because it would be easy to spend my blogging hour each day, reading up from all the experts, and leave feeling overwhelmed and like I'm not a proper blogger.

10 Sunday Loves no.2



Happy Sunday everyone! How are you? I'm having a super chilled out weekend... maybe a little too chilled out, in that despite having 48 hours all to my little self, I'm yet to do any of the things I said I would. Oh well there's still time!

I can't believe how quickly a month has passed since I posted my first 'Sunday Loves' post! But before I get into jabbering on too much about how quickly everything is going lately I'll just get on and share the products, shows, magazines and clothes I've been loving and coveting lately! OH and of course some of my favourite blog posts from you guys too!
