Where to find other bloggers

When you first start blogging it can almost feel alien to you. As you feel quite lonely, because maybe your friends don’t get the whole blogging thing. Let me tell you there’s plenty that do.

Don’t know where to look for them?

Here’s where I found some of mine and how you can find yours and be friends for life.

❤️ Pinterest
❤️ Instagram
❤️ Twitter chats
❤️ Using hashtags on social media
❤️ Groups on Facebook
❤️ Follow other blogs
❤️ Comment on other blogs

You need to try spark up a conversation, be brave and be the one to break the ice.

If someone is asking for help with their blog and you know the answer. Reach out and offer an olive branch.

When you have built up a little bit of a bond feature them on your blog or social media to show you really value their friendship. Also do a shout out or follow Friday and tell everyone why they should follow such an awesome individual.

If they take the time to read your blog and comment then you should in return do the same. Get into the habit of reading blogs every night.
If you live near a certain blogger suggest meeting up at an event near you. If you live in bigger cities you’ll more than likely get event invites.

Ask to join a Pinterest group which helps promote your post and make sure you participate.

Share on your Instagram stories some of your bloggers feed photos or quotes that you like. I’ll help others find them too.
Make yourself available to your blogger friends if they should ever need you and you’ll be a friend they’ll never want to lose.

Fierce Female Friday Week 2

This is Hannah who is a mental health nurse by trade, beginning to branch out as a mental health and wellbeing coach.

She’s a mum of 2 and step mum of 4, ages range from 2-18. So home life can be extremely busy,but all good fun.

So let’s get to know Hannah

and what makes her a fierce female

What makes you feel powerful?

I always feel stronger after meditating and finding my inner strength, allowing all the stresses around me melt away. I also look at myself in the mirror and tell myself I am awesome

What 3 strong women do you look up to?

Michelle Obama is an inspiration. I loved reading her autobiography. She is such a down to earth woman who is humbled by all the amazing opportunities that have opened up for her.

Sarah Steckler founder of Mindful Productivity because she is again really down to earth and open about her own struggles through life.

My mum because she has so much confidence in herself. We may not always see eye to eye but her inner strength and conviction is something I aspire to achieve in myself

What advice would you give to someone needing to find their inner fierceness?

I try to remind myself of all the positive things people tell me about myself. And remind myself that if I were to call others all the horrible things I call myself, no one would like me! I highly recommend meditation to help calm the mind and then focus on the positive messages in their life

Please feel free to go follow Hannah on her socials and her blog

It’s OK you can look away

Gone are the days where people simply sat down at a desk or a, table and wrote in a book… I mean I still do it but things started to consume our lives….and get in the way.

Making sure your phone is fully charged so you can scroll through the whole of Instagram liking pics of peoples lives instead of creating your own life.

Having your ego boosted by how many likes /loves and whatever Emoji you have. Sure it can make you happy temporarily but is it that important to you. Personally I just share and if I get comments and likes then I do it’s not a goal I aim for like some do.

Sometimes it even gets in the way of relationships. Do you ever think would you be able to spend a week say with your significant other with no social media interaction. You love them more I’d hope to put it aside for the time you spend with them.

Social media isn’t going anywhere soon so do yourself a favour and look away for a bit. Don’t consume this thing we call life by obsessing over someone else’s.

LISTEN UP: DON’T LET SOCIAL MEDIA DIM YOUR LIGHT

I am a few days behind putting up my podcast episode on here but hey, better late than never.

It is all about social media and how some people use it wrongly and how to go about it the right way and also how I use it for the greater good.

I did touch on this in a previous blog post here  if you fancy a read

My Monthly Favourites For December

First of all i want to congratulate myself.

I’ve actually managed to stick to a whole year of writing my monthly favourites…small accomplishments and all that.

Anyways lets get on with this months faves.

FAVOURITE SONG

Play by Jax Jones and Years and years. It’s one I’ve very recently discovered and i absolutely love it.

FAVOURITE FOOD

These were things I’d never tried before but without a doubt I’d have it again and again – obviously had sprouts before but not with anything added to them. Stollen is a German cake i think with marzipan, fruit and other yummy things and looks a bit like fruit loaf but it’s so much more fancier.

FAVOURITE APPS

I Really enjoy my instagram stories and it’s good to try stand out. I think last month i done pocket video which can be used anywhere on social. But these 3 are especially for Instagram. Worth downloading to have a play around.

FAVOURITE QUOTE

The quote speaks for itself and doesn’t really need any explanation.

So December is nearly over and it’s been one hell of a month. Roll on the new year i say.

I do hope you all still aren’t eating turkey sandwiches.

(Got to be a long standing Christmas joke)

TTFN – ta ta for now for all who were thinking what on earth does that mean
