easy as A - B - C

*not to be confused with my long drawn out A - B - C series.*

Have you noticed that Thursday and Friday seem to be my blog weekend days? 

Saturday I come back to life and Sunday there is always a lot of activity here and on facebook etc. Maybe it has something to do with the culmination of a week of work and my brain just can't handle tap tap tapping away anymore. 

Which makes me realise that blogging, especially if it's your 2nd job/part-time interest alongside a full time job, can be a little challenging.

Recently I had a few great ladies contact me with different questions about blogging. I am going to be honest; I have been blogging for a while but have a relatively small (but loyal) readership and I generally write what I like so I feel in no way qualified to give blog advice. 

So I went in search of some tips and tricks of the trade (basically browsing all my favourite blogs for help with the whole blogging thing). 

My first stop was Jenni at Story of my Life; I love the way she blogs and her style because it's almost like your sitting at her kitchen table with a cup of coffee and a cookie, everytime you read her posts. And she has been blogging for a while and has a strong readership so know's what she is talking about. She has shared her wisdom here.

And then there is one of my all time favourite blogs, A Beautiful Mess. This is fantastic reading and the co-authors, Elsie and Emma always have great content. They regularly share their wisdom with the readers. My favourites are here, here and here.

    1. Indeed blogging can be a full time job. Sometimes I find it tough to fit it round my actual full time job :P
