SEO Tips for Bloggers

A few months ago, I wrote a quick tweet with 10 very easy steps to help bloggers improve their website’s SEO performance. Safe to say it did rather well, with many of you asking me to go into more detail on the various steps as well as cover off some more complex details that require explanation. So, today I want to run through these 10 SEO tips for bloggers with more information and advice included, help translate some of the jargon you may here on a day-to-day basis and what to avoid as you begin to grow your SEO practices for the site.

Note: It’s important to remember that good SEO takes time and is a long-term strategy. It can take months or even years to get right so be patient with it. Your hard work will pay off. View Post

Good Guys vs Nice Guys

“Nice guys finish last” is a common trope heard from men complaining that many people they desire go for “bad boys” or men who don’t treat their partners properly. However, one of the main issues with this attitude is the suggestion that a man is only being a “nice guy” for his own gain – usually romantic. What this phrase is actually trying to do is to encourage empathy for men who attempt to be nice for personal gain, whilst condemning the recipient of this “nice” behaviour for not appreciating it. Today I want to talk about why you shouldn’t be a nice guy, should instead aspire to be a good guy and why ensuring there is a clear distinction between each of these is important. View Post

Summer Grooming Routine 1

With July in full swing and the temperature sitting in the mid-twenties, Summer is officially at its peak and people everywhere are enjoying the sun. However, your skin is likely not such a big fan of summer and now, more than ever, you need to be looking after it while the mercury levels are still high. Summer presents some fairly large problems for your skin; sun damage, sweat, sun cream/lotions, air conditioning and everyday pollution can all irritate and harm your skin.

So, I’ve put together my daily summer grooming routine with some products that I’ve been using for years and a few I’ve only recently come across. View Post

 

Breaking Up With Instagram

Hey…so, I’m really glad we could talk about this as it’s been weighing on my mind for a while. Instagram, you and I have had a great run together. Sure, my profile didn’t have tens of thousands of followers but we’ve shared some great moments over the past few years. Remember that first post we did? Or our first story? Yeah, they were good times but I think it’s time we talked about us because I feel like you’re taking me for granted a little bit and, ultimately, I just can’t carry on feeling like you’ve put me on the back burner after all these years of hard work. So, I wanted to go over why I think it might be best if we go our separate ways… View Post
