December Blog Semi Hiatus

I made a deal with myself; if I was still behind with things at the end of November I would need to take a break and get back on top of things. After a week filled with migraines again for the first time in forever, I’m feeling that even more now. I just feel like more things are getting added to my list and so this month I’m taking a semi-hiatus from my blog. What does that mean exactly? I’m still going to be blogging but the big stuff, the monthly series listed here won’t be getting done. That includes the weekly transmog sets. I’mRead More →

October Monthly Update

Now, how would I describe October? Two things spring to mind; always behind and lergy. The month started off well enough and I had a nice peaceful simple birthday (just what I had in mind) and continued my annual birthday tradition of having some form of illness, usually something flu-like. I’ll let you read on to find out more about how my October went 🙂 I used to do a monthly goals post each month before I swapped to these round up posts this year.

Geeking By in September

September proved to be a wild month (quite literally in the case of Storm Ali!), it was unpredictable, filled with challenges and nothing went as it was supposed to go. Nevertheless I got through it and here’s my monthly recap for you all 🙂 Blogging & Projects As I already mentioned I’ve been working on the Unique Bloggers group for the last few months, so that was a big part of my work load this month 🙂 It is both terrifying and exciting at the same time but I’m still so happy that I made the move to do it. I’ve been continuing to workRead More →

Guest Posts

As I get back into the swing of things and get September’s posts scheduled I’d like to also get some guests posts happening for September and the next following months, including the run up to Christmas. So I’ve had a little bit of a brainstorm and here are some ideas for content that I’d like to see on the blog but I don’t really have time to implement myself.   About Guest Posting A guest post is as simple as it sounds; you write a post as a guest for someone else’s blog. You don’t necessarily need to have an active blog of your ownRead More →

Blog Promo Links - Blog Tags & Surveys

Last month I featured facebook groups which are a pretty standard and well known tool for promoting your blog. This month I wanted to highlight one that is of a completely different vein. Blog tags, also known as surveys and questionnaires, are a method that also help you develop new content for your blog while promoting it. So how do they work? Pretty simple! Each tag works around the same idea an activity, usually a set of questions that the blogger needs to answer.  Once you’ve answered your questions you then nominate other bloggers to do it. How does this benefit me? Usually each bloggerRead More →
