14 Posts You Need To Read This Month

Let me just start off by saying, I have saved a lot of blog posts this month. Many of these I've tweeted about throughout this month, because they've just been too good to save for this one piece of content. But today, I've collected them all in one place for you. Some of them you'll probably have already read, but some you won't. So make a brew, get some biscuits, sit back and get ready to immerse yourself in the written word for a while.

14 Posts You Need To Read This Month

2015 has started with a huge bang. Seriously. I started the year with a Bloglovin clear out and I'm so glad I did. The bloggers and businesses I follow have brought some amazing ideas to the table this month, from personal to skills and everything in between. 

You'll notice on Twitter that I share a lot of content that I enjoy reading or that inspires me. But I love putting it all together for you in one place where you can just take your time to read through all the great ideas that are out there.

Do You Have Brand Values? If Not Why Not?

"A question that doesn't have a definite answer is a question worth exploring."

Did you know a source found by Social Triggers says there are more than 164 million blogs? 

I know right. What a figure.

164 million. To put it into context, there are around 64.1 million people living in the UK right now. So currently, there are more than twice as many blogs in the world compared to people in the UK.

That’s a big figure. 

Huge.

If you’re reading this, you may have a blog or you may not. If you do, I’m guessing that like me, you’re one of the 164 million. 

So in other words we’re all really little fish in a very big pond. It’s no wonder we always ask ourselves the question: “Why do we blog?”

My Blogging Tools

Blogging is an amazing world that I’m so privileged and lucky to be able to say I’m a part of.  I’m coming up to my one year anniversary for my blog and even though I’m still very much a newbie, there are so many things I’ve learnt. It’s a world you enter where there are endless possibilities. I've never really talked about my blogging tools but I'd like to share them with you.

Really, all you need to get started is a love for writing and creating content, enthusiasm and something you believe in

Planning

Everyone in the blogging world is aware that planning is crucial in terms of creating and maintaining your blog presence. But this is a lot easier said than done.

I start off by writing everything down in my notebook. I used to have a list of post ideas on my iPad, but I found it easier to get them down in writing first and then write them up in more detail on EvernoteThis little app is an absolute life saver. My next step is to get a notebook for each topic I post about.

Once I’ve got the basis of some ideas, I transfer them onto the relevant note on Evernote, whether that’s Fashion, Beauty, Inspiration, Lifestyle or Food – see the pattern? This allows me to keep track of the posts I’ve got for different topics and write down exactly what I need to do for each of them. Plus you can add tick boxes next to each point and cross off things as you go along.
