    What Self-Hosting Means For You

    Self-Hosting And How This Will Effect You I just wanted to confirm that I will be self-hosting from here onwards. I contacted WP on multiple occasions asking them to unblock me but they completely ignored me and encouraged me to leave so that’s exactly what I will be doing. To be honest I no longer want to be on a platform that does not really care about its users. Here’s a great article on the basics of self-hosting: https://ellesunpopularopinions.com/the-basics-of-understanding-self-hosting/ I have received multiple emails and messages about the situation and what it will mean for my audience/followers. That’s why I wanted to post this as soon as possible to explain…

    5 Things I've Learnt From Blogging

    This post is in collaboration with Elle from ellesunpopularopinions. If that blog name doesn’t draw you in and make you want to follow her blog then I don’t know what will!

    Advice For New Bloggers #2

    Advice For New Blogger Continued A while ago I wrote a post with advice for new bloggers and that post was strictly to help them stay careful, safe and to better understand blogging. You can read that post by clicking here.  I think when it comes to blogging there are some things you can only pick up on once you have been blogging for a while and since I have been picking up on some stuff over the years I like sharing it with everyone- especially newer bloggers. A lot of times people seem to have this notion that doing stuff on the internet is easier than traditional work or…

    Advice For New Bloggers

    Advice For New Bloggers A few weeks ago a new blogger reached out to me and shared her story with me about the problems she faced as a new blogger. She suggested that since I write advice posts for bloggers all the time that I should write one for new bloggers so that they can avoid what she went through. I thought this was a really good idea because when I started out with blogging there was a lot of things that I wish someone had told me. Unlike most of my advice posts, this one is not specifically aimed at growing your blog, gaining followers, or increasing your traffic.…

    My Blogging Journey #5

    My Blogging Journey And Why I Decided To Share It I would recommend reading part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4 of my blogging journey before reading this one because you may feel a bit lost without reading those. However, they are quite long so I would totally understand if you want to skip reading the others and just read this one. Just a heads up- this post is slightly longer compared to my usual posts because I try to give a lot more details on my blogging journey and I just have quite a bit to say because I have to condense everything that happened in an entire year…
