Do let me know if there is anything in particular that you want me to post about or anything you can’t get your head round and I will put it on my list!!

5 WordPress Plugins All Bloggers Need

This is pretty useless if you aren’t on WordPress, though saying that, I am sure that other hosts will have their own versions of plugins so that you can swap and change things to personalise your page. Just take each concept and find a way to action it on your own site.

These plugins will make your blogging life easier whilst boosting your SEO and most important of all, keeping the reader interested!

How To Lower Your Bounce Rate In 5 Simple Steps

Ah, the pesky bounce rate. I managed to ace mine purely by fluke, I don’t know if it’s just that I have well and truly found my niche – of course that helps. But I do know that I have made some changes based on what I had read about getting followers not improving your bounce rate. Though looking back, I suppose the two go hand in hand.

With these small steps my bounce rate has fallen from around 60% to less than 1% . . honestly sometimes I think theres a technical glitch for it to be so low but I can see in real time on Google Analytics that people stay on my blog for a while, the key is to keep them interested!

5 Steps To A Killer Blog Title

Blog titles and photos are two of the most important aspects to your post. Sure the writing has to be good because thats what keeps people interested and coming back to see what you’ve got to say. But lets face it, people do judge a book by it’s cover and your internet cover is the first image on your post and the title, if it ain’t catchy they ain’t reading it!

Blogging Tips // Getting Started

This is an old post I did a fair while ago so please don’t judge. I thought I would still add it in though as these are the steps I went through when setting up my blog and some of the key points for a newbie blogger that I felt at the time were very useful!

Blogging Tips // Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me

This is a post I did recently and feel quite strongly about. Some bloggers are super helpful, kind and sharing when it comes to blogging tips . . take me for example. Whereas in my experience, there are others that will tell you the generic blogging tips “be yourself, stay true, do it for the love of it, use keywords” all of the general stuff that is oh so obvious. These bloggers don’t like sharing their tips, obviously they are helpful pieces of information but they’re not insightful in any way, shape or form.

So here are the tips I wish someone had told me earlier on, they may not be mind blowing but they’re the things I think will help!

    As a relatively new blogger (coming up to my first blog birthday!) I love these kinds of blogging tips posts as they always teach me something I didn’t know, or answer a question I didn’t even know I had! Saved this to come back in the future! x http://www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    Fab idea of a round up. Think I’d not read your instagram ones, so just caught up, as I’m really trying to focus on my pictures and following there at the moment! 🙂

      Ah glad you liked it hun! Those instagram ones are old but I think they’r still relevant! For me tagging brands in my pictures and using their hashtags is a great way to get reposted, reposts definitely get me the most followers!

    Thank you so much for sharing this! This is the most helpful post I’ve seen since I started blogging just a month ago. I’m grateful to you for sharing so many wonderful tips and for making a newbie’s life easier 🙂 I do have one (possibly silly) question for you though! How do you sign off your name like that at the end of each post? I’ve been trying to come up with a way for my blog posts but have been unsuccessful so far. Thank you once again!
