Blogger Fitness Challenge, Summer 2017

The main aspect of blogging that I am still here for is the community. So, when I sat down and thought about the fact that my blogging might be cutting down on my exercise/ fitness time, I figured that there may be other bloggers who feel the same way. I could have simply written this down in a notebook but I figured that I would share this if anyone else is interested!

 Making Blogging Connections

Everyone starts blogging for different reasons. Some start to be an influencer, some to make money, some to promote a service or a product, and some to update friends and family. I started (and continue) blogging for the community; I love meeting new people across the globe and getting a peek into what they do and how they think! Yes, you can always buy followers or sign up for services that use your account to like and follow other accounts, but I don’t personally understand the draw. Today, I’m going to be sharing my tips and advice on making blogging connections and widening your sphere!

Quick Question, 9 May 2017

Hello hello, it’s that time again! The Quick Question- I’m gonna get to know you, you are gonna get to know me, and hopefully we all have a little fun. Sometimes blogging can be a little distancing, because I’m writing it but I’ve no idea how you are reading and interpreting it. The little things are what make life what it is, and this little thing is more important than some people might think…

Mystery Blogger Award

This post is due to Charlotte and her lovely nomination for the Mystery Blogger Award! I particularly love this award given my fascination with mysteries- I’m hoping that I can still maintain an air of mystery throughout my life. (“Was she a professional cookie maker? Do dogs seek her out? Can she really cartwheel through the snow?” These are all questions I hope people will ask about me.)

Top Instagram Posts, April 2017

Now that I am spending a decent amount of time and effort on Instagram and I’m slowly connecting with people, I thought I would do a monthly round up of the most popular posts on my Instagram account! Although most of the pictures I post are related to the blog post of that day, I will try to give a little more background into the image itself. This was supposed to be the top five pictures but of course there was a three way tie in the fourth spot, so you get six! And if you would like to connect on Instagram, please leave your Instagram handle in the comments!

Rant: Blogging Pet Peeves

I’m going to burn in blogger hell for this post, but it’s finally time I get it out there. My gripes with several blogging practices are certainly in the minority, as countless bloggers do all of these things- huge bloggers who will have more new followers in week than I will ever have in my life- but they turn me off of blogs pretty quickly. So. if you aren’t interested in hearing blogging gripes, feel free to take a day off and check back in tomorrow! If you are, read on…

Quick Question, 25 April 2017

This week’s Quick Question is all about what we do- blogging, to carry on from my post yesterday! I find that a lot of people don’t often discuss blogging. I’m not sure if it’s too meta or if people simply don’t like writing about blogging itself, but I do think it’s pretty interesting. This is a question that I hadn’t considered until a few days ago:

4 Things I Have Learned From Blogging

I’ve been blogging for over two years now. I know that I’m fairly small and insignificant in the world of blogging, but if nothing else I’ve learned a few things along the way. I don’t proclaim to be some sort of blogging guru- I certainly make mistakes regularly- but I hope that today’s post is helpful in looking at your own blog in some way! These are the big lessons that I have learned from blogging…
