  1. The Essentials For Working From Home

    Posted on

    For many of us, working from home is a blessing; you get to avoid the hustle and bustle of a busy office, don’t get stuck in traffic and you have one of the easiest commutes ever.  It’s also incredibly flexible and makes working around having young children a lot easier in most instances.  It’s not without its downfalls and certainly doesn’t suit everyone.  For me, I wouldn’t change it for the world and hope I can continue to work from home for the foreseeable future.

  4. How to successfully launch and manage a new blog

    Posted on

    With over 6 million blog posts published daily from the existing 1.9 billion websites, launching a new one to success takes deliberate effort. The numbers aren’t meant to scare you though. They’re just to prepare you for the hard work that running one involves. 

    Most successful bloggers have put in thousands of hours to get their websites to rank highly and generate decent revenue. You can make it too. But you must get the basics right. This article outlines a list of some of the must-dos for a successful blog:

  5. 6 handy tax tips for bloggers

    Posted on

    It’s coming up to that time of year again… no, not Christmas, but the other time of year that all self-employed people start freaking out about… tax return time! 

    OK, not everyone freaks out as some of us do our tax returns as soon as we can, like in April as soon as the new tax year starts! 

    I’ve always wondered why people put it off until the very last minute...?  I love to get mine out of the way as soon as possible.  If you are prepared then you can do this too and stop all the panicking in January!

    The only thing I do freak out about is remembering to pay my bill.  I have several alarms at the ready near the end of January.  I always have the money saved ready to pay it and simply need to log in to my HMRC self-assessment online account to make my payment. 

    The first year I paid self-employment tax I did actually pay it right away, as soon as I completed my tax return.  But the payment just sat there in my tax account doing nothing.  They don't actually clear the tax balance due until it reaches the tax payment deadline. So since then I thought it better to earn interest on my tax savings until the actual due date!

  6. Where to find free stock photos for your blog

    Posted on

    If you’re a beginner blogger then you might be wondering how all the blogs that you read have such amazing photography.  Whilst many bloggers take it upon themselves to learn photography skills and invest in a ‘proper’ camera as I like to call them, there are also those of us who make do with our smart phones and a bunch of websites that offer free stock photos!

    If photography isn’t your thing, or you simply don’t have the time to invest in creating your own images, then finding free images with no copyright is a great way to keep your blog’s imagery looking professional.

    There are lots of mistakes that new bloggers make when it comes to finding images on the internet and I am to answer some of these questions in this blog post, such as whether all Google images are copyright free and where you can find free stock images to use on your blog.

  7. Exactly what to do after publishing a blog post

    Posted on

    Unless you are a supreme master of SEO, you’ll soon discover that there’s a lot more to running a successful blog than simply writing a blog post and hitting the publish button.  In 2013 there were apparently 152 million blogs on the internet and I can only imagine that number has risen exponentially over the past few years as blogging seems more popular than ever, both as a hobby and now a reputable career choice.

    Simply hitting enter once you’ve written a blog post isn’t going to cut it.  If you want eyes on your blog, then you need to shout about it from the rooftops and market yourself as best you can.  Here are the ways I market each blog post after hitting publish.

  8. Things bloggers wish they knew before starting a blog

    New bloggers, learn from our mistakes!

    My story of how I started blogging is very different to most. Many people set up a blog with the aim of being a blogger, or nowadays bloggers even start out with a business plan. 

    In recent years it has become totally possible to monetize a blog or website and it’s now my main source of income! 

    I never started this way though. I originally had an online store with a blog.  I didn’t use the blog at first.  But, eventually, to create more content for my website and with the aim of generating more sales and traffic in my online store, I started blogging. It was a business blog at first, but then I fell in love with blogging and it quickly took over. 

    Now I have a blog that makes money with a small store on the side!  The tables have turned.  I never set out to be a blogger.  It happened because of my ecommerce business.  So I made many mistakes along the way.

    What I wish I knew when I started my blog!

    Here are some of the things I wish I’d known or done differently when starting my blog:
