    Being Productive When It Feels You Don’t Have Much Time* || Life Lately

    February 13, 2019 FrannyMac

    Do you ever wake up some days with big plans of getting so much stuff done, but by the end of the day,  you’ve not gotten even a fraction of your to-do list ticked off and you feel totally deflated and like you’ve had the most unproductive day ever? ‘Cos same. More than I’d like to admit. But, there’s something I was once told that stuck with me we all have the same 24 hours each day. (Yeah, even Beyonce!)…

    In some ways, being able to make an income from blogging is an absolute dream come true. (And something I certainly didn’t think I’d do when I started sharing my rambles online!) Spending my evenings writing about what I’ve been up to, still makes me as happy as when I started and my heart still lights up when someone compliments my little slice of the internet. But, benefits aside, turning your blog into a business is far from easy. In fact,…

    Can You Turn Your Blog Into A Thriving Business?* || Blogging

    When I started my blog I had no idea that it would be such a big part of my life. I mean, if I’m honest, it started as a move from Tumblr to somewhere I could post the photos I took without annoying my Facebook friends. (I mean, there’s only so many times I can post photo albums of my adventures…). And, I was, and still am a little bit surprised that people actually come to my page and read…

    As a blogger, I’m pretty much always thinking about what I want to post next and what people would find interesting to read from me. And, admittedly, I used to overshare a lot. I know, I know, “how can you overshare on a blog where you mostly talk about your lipstick collection and your adventures around London?”. Well, I’ll tell you how. I once got an email in my blog inbox that made me feel sick to my stomach. Someone I…

    Safety and security go hand in hand when it comes to your blog. You need to do everything in your power to ensure your blog is secure and that you’re as safe as you can be from legal issues and other matters that might damage your website or your reputation. It’s one of the more serious sides to blogging and you can’t afford to ignore it completely. I know that more than most as back in July my blog was…

    March 14, 2018 FrannyMac

    Let’s be honest, no matter how long you’ve been blogging for, we all have moments where it feels like all our inspiration to write and create dries up. I’ve been lucky recently and in getting myself a little more organised, I’ve managed to get back towards to a regular posting schedule. Aside from this, I also realised what I can do for a quick boost of inspiration. So I thought I’d share six of the things I do when I’m…

    December 11, 2017 FrannyMac

    I know that at this time of year almost every blogger has some kind of 2017 in review post. This isn’t going to be the first, and it’s certainly not going to be the last. In fact, it’s not even the last post I’m doing on this. I’ve hopefully (if the Christmas break was productive enough) a few posts including favorite bloggers from the year, looking back on the year’s highlights and of course an update on the aims goals I posted…

    September 1, 2017 FrannyMac

    If you asked any blogger if they’d had a moment where they considered deleting everything and throwing the towel in, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who hadn’t. And, I hate to admit it but I had this moment over the past month or so. Everything with work and life seemed to be bogging me down and I would pull out my laptop and notepad but despite coming up with some post names I just couldn’t write anything that I…

    6 Tricks For Managing To Blog With A Full Time Job || Blogging Tips

    July 29, 2016 FrannyMac

    As I may have mentioned before, I work full time as a business account manager. Aside from my 40 hour working weeks, I also have a 50 minute commute each way to get to work. To say it keeps me busy would be an understatement. This means that whenever my friends hear about my blog, one of the first questions they ask is “but how do you find the time?!“. So I thought I’d share my tips for managing to post…
