What’s Next for Even Angels Fall?

As the year comes to a close, I have been thinking about how I want to adapt and update Even Angels Fall as we go into 2020, not only a new year but a new decade. Since starting back in an office job alongside writing the blog, I have struggled a little to juggle everything. I have been writing 4 blog posts a week most weeks for the past year,...

What I’ve Learnt From 9 Months as a Self Employed Blogger

I have been blogging in total for almost eight years but I only took the leap and registered as self employed back at the start of this year. It was something I had wanted to do for a while but never felt that I was ‘good’ enough to dedicate myself entirely to my blog. In the end, I kind of fell into it after deciding it would be too expensive...

What I’ve Learnt About SEO Through Blogging

5 Reasons I Love Having Friends Who Blog 

When I first started blogging back in 2011, I was part of a big online group with lots of other girls who had also recently set up blogs. It was lovely to feel such a sense of community and I must admit, I struggled a bit when it came to setting up this blog in 2015 as I didn’t really know anybody else who was blogging at the time.

Tips for Going Self Employed as a Blogger

See, although I have been blogging now for over seven years, it wasn’t until the...

The Bournemouth Blogger May Meet-Up

Last November I took over my local blogging network, the Bournemouth Bloggers. Since then, I have been working hard to bring as many local venues and businesses together with us influencers (personally hate the word, but some of the members work purely on YouTube or Instragram, so strictly not all Bloggers). I have been really enjoying it and, through running the network, I have made some amazing friends. As well...

Why Instastories is Making Me Fall Back in Love with Instagram

Instagram. The social media platform us bloggers all love to hate. Just when we thought the Facebook algorithm was bad enough, Instagram went one better, with posts we actually want to see being shunted right down the feed and pictures showing up from days ago. What happened to it being instant?  And then, when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, the platform decided to start randomly ‘shadow banning’ users...
