It’s not often that I blog about blogging and I am certainly no expert in it, but I have been working on increasing my organic blog traffic and I have actually had some really good results from doing so which I thought was well worth a share in order to help others. You see, I have wasted years ignoring SEO and relying on social media but all that does is make you work harder for it. If you only use a social media platform to gain views they are usually short-lived, you have to constantly promote your posts and if for whatever reason, your page gets removed or hacked, you have nothing to fall back on. Having a website that can draw in organic blog traffic is far more beneficial to you and you will soon discover that it is more worthwhile to work smarter over harder. So how do you increase organic blog traffic? Continue reading “How I Increased My Organic Blog Traffic By Almost 400% In 6 Months”

It’s time to think about what will happen as the economy grows more uncertain with the looming issue of Brexit (whether you voted for it or not, there’s no denying that it will have long term economic repercussions including the possibility of a recession). But perhaps most importantly of all, it means doing your part to ensure that your business leads the charge for sustainability and ecological awareness. Given that our PM couldn’t be bothered to even turn up to a debate on climate change, it’s up to the UK’s businesses and entrepreneurs to show how much they care about a sustainable business future.

There are so many aspects of my job which I love; working from home, being my own boss, making online connections. But one area that can really affect all bloggers is the loneliness and lack of colleagues to chat to or bounce ideas off of. This is precisely why, when a meeting or conference comes up, most of us jump at the chance to attend. A conference gives a blogger the chance to learn new skills, to listen to experts, to chat to new friends and to make valuable contacts with PR’s.
This is the first year that I have made it to any event or conference (I’ve been blogging for 3 years) and now I have stepped out of my comfort zone, I am always eager for that next big day. Continue reading “Attending The Maven Connex Conference at De Vere Hotel Tortworth”

What if you found a midway meetup point for a blogger workday? Would this help with your productivity? Continue reading “Would a Blogger Workday Meetup Help With Your Productivity?”
