See you in a Month!

For those who missed it, I recently wrote a post about how I need a break to focus on my health and wellbeing. So I'm taking a month-long hiatus throughout May. There will still be some posts appearing on my blog, these will be my guest posts on Wednesdays. All these posts are scheduled so I really am taking a break. All comments after today will be responded to in June when I'm back.

What the New Facebook and Instagram Changes Mean For You

Facebook has once again made some changes that are rolling out in 2019 with the main change being they want to focus heavily on building relationships and interactions.  This means if you want your Facebook Page's posts to be viewed by more people you need to really build those connections and avoid some pitfalls.  Receiving …

A Revelation & An Announcement

If you've been visiting this blog over the last few weeks, you'll see I've been wrestling with some issues.  Things in my life have been getting overwhelming and I had been focusing too much on what I consider "busy work" as a way to cope. Normally in this situation, I do a reset and things get back on track.  However, not this time.  Because technically, this time was different in many ways. 

Why I Really Need to do a Life Audit

Okay, so last Friday I talked about doing a reset.  That's where you clear your metaphorical chessboard and start again.    I've heard from several writer friends both in the comments and in emails, how they are starting to feel overwhelmed, bogged down and generally not in a great place.  So, it definitely seems like I'm not the only one feeling it. If the reset is where you have a toddler-sized temper tantrum and fling all the chess pieces off the board, then the Life Audit is where you put them all back on again.  Neatly.  Organised.  So you have control again.

How to Use Social Media for Your Marketing

It's Monday Marketing time, people!   Today I thought I'd talk (more) about social media. Last year, I did a series on Social Media but I think discussing it specifically for Marketing is important. Not all social media is the same.  Ones such as Twitter and Snapchat are fast-paced social media platforms. LinkedIn is more business-oriented, designed more for making professional connections.  Instagram is obviously a more visual platform, whereas Facebook... well, Facebook has changed a lot. It used to be where everyone hung out (except me, I was a late (and grudging) comer to the platform). In fact, it's a shocker I'm even ON social media.  I hate it, but it has its uses.  Like Taxes.

Why it’s Super Important to do a Reset Sometimes

How often do you feel there just aren't enough hours in the day?  We cram our days full of chores, work, errands, family, projects not to mention sleeping, eating, etc and if we're lucky we managed to find some time to chill or do fun activities. Well, recently I've felt like all I do is work.  Housework, business work, paperwork, blog work, marketing work... and it's been getting me down. When that happens, I usually try and step back and take stock.  So here's me...stock taking.

8 Weird And Wonderful Bad Habits I Have

No guest post today so I thought I would give you a little post about me.  After so many people enjoyed my post "I am Bad at Being an Adult" I decided to write this. As well as being a pretty rubbish adult, despite being in the middle of my third decade... I have some annoying habits to go with that bad adulting. Maybe you will read some of these and realise you do them too...and that I'm not just alone in my crazy.
