And Your Name Is?


It’s been a while since I’ve taken part inDr. Tanya’s“Blogging Insights Series.” Notwithstanding my absence over the past few months, this topic seemed like it was a good one to jump back onto the bandwagon with.

The topic Dr. Tanya is tackling this time is “Your User Name”when blogging.

She’s given us a bit of look at it like this:

The name that you blog under is the calling card which introduces you to bloggers and readers across the globe. Some bloggers use their first name and some use their full name. Others prefer to keep their identity unknown, blogging under a cool made up name.

As such, we have three questions to ponder:

Do you use your own name for blogging?

If you use a pseudonym, what are your reasons for this and what led you to choose that particular name?

Is there an interesting story…

The Worst Things About Blogging


After spending a couple of years of my life blogging I’ve come to learn a lot about it.
There’s so much I love about blogging, but I also find a few things to hate at times, for a while I found that I had a love-hate relationship with blogging.

Not been able to switch off
I find it really hard to switch off, not just from blogging but in general. Once I have an idea I have to jot it down there and then, otherwise I worry about forgetting it. A lot of the time I have to remind myself that it isn’t my full time job, but I often work on my blog when I’m home from my actual job and on weekends, so it’s difficult to give my brain a break.

How To Update Your Blog Content

New Lune

One of the best ways to improve your blog is to update your content. What I mean by updating your content is updating your blog posts and pages, especially if you had written them a long time ago. You might be wondering what to update if you don’t really know where to start, well I’m here to help you! I personally wouldn’t recommend to update or edit a blog post if you feel happy about it.

4 Things You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty As A Blogger

New Lune

Creating a blog was probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in life. Like any other things, there are both pros and cons but I personally think the pros outweigh the negatives. I remember when I first started blogging, I used to feel guilty because I wasn’t working on my blog as much as I would have loved to. Now, I feel guilty for other things. I think it’s the same case for every blogger. We always emphasise on the things we didn’t pay attention or didn’t achieve than we forget to see how far we’ve come.

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 4 things that you shouldn’t feel guilty as a blogger. There are definitely a few exceptions for instance if you copy another blogger’s content or are disrespectful online towards other people but I wouldn’t consider those people as bloggers…

Care for a journey through the galaxy?

It’s been a while since I haven’t written some blogging tips, and I wanted to write about blog-hopping for some time. I wrote, in some previous posts, how blog-hopping is helping me blog. I think this is an essential part of blogging we often forget, unfortunately. So I wanted to try to cast a light on blog-hopping, and maybe inspire some fellow bloggers to do the same.

Crafting a Title

Does the title accurately convey what is in the post while grabbing the readers eye?
