5 Tips For Using Instagram to Promote Your Blog

My blog-life would be a walk in the park if Instagram allowed us to add click-able links into the captions of our posts. Sadly, this is not the case. How are we supposed to use Instagram to promote our blog? It’s a question which I’ve asked myself an awful lot in the past. Well, until I brainstormed and brainstormed. I’ll admit Instagram is always going to be one hard nut to crack but hopefully my tips may help you on your way!

5 Tips For Using Instagram to Promote Your Blog

Instagram to promote your blog

1) Use blogger hashtags regularly 

This goes without saying but which ones are going to be best for you? Don’t use any old blogger hashtags. Use ones in your niche, in your city/town or blogging community hashtags. I use #LivBloggers for example because I’m a Liverpool blogger. I’ve found that it really connects me with bloggers who are actually interested in my posts and interact. I could browse through that hashtag all day! For the time being stay away from using “#BeautyBloggers” it’s banned on Instagram and your post will not show up. I swear by the #TheGirlGang hashtag.

Guest Post: 10 Simple ways to get past writers block

10 Simple ways to get past writers block

Ideas have been floating in and out of my mind for days about what to write. To be honest, every idea I had sucked! No emotions, no helpful tips, no passion. I had writers block. So I referred back to the list I made in my book. That list consisted of all the ways that usually help me to get past my writers block. Then I realised that it would be the perfect time to share it with you.
We all know how frustrating it is when you so desperately want to post regularly but there’s nothing that you feel passionate about writing. I know I certainly don’t enjoy posting because I feel like I have to. I am never proud of posts that stem from my writers block.
Past writers block
So as sharing is caring, here you go;

1. Forget about your readers. 

I know how daunting it is to think about your readers whilst you’re writing a post. It’s a scary thought. Whether you have 2 readers or 50k. So forget they exist for a minute and just start writing down every thought you have. Don’t think about whether your readers will like it or not. Don’t be afraid to have a good rant. There will always be people who don’t agree with you, but you’re not writing for them. You’re writing for you. Writing is emotion. Let it out.

The One With Blogger Love

In case you didn’t already know it’s Friday!!! This means a weekend of nothing but Game of Thrones and junk food. Which I’m pretty excited about that to be honest with you. The past few weeks have been a little wild. I’m looking forward to the chilled, lazy weekend ahead.

The One With The Blogger Love

I’m feeling full of love at the moment for the world of blogging. Bloggers are pretty damn inspiring. I literally have SO much respect for each and every blogger. I wanted to share some blogs which I read religiously and really look up to.

Personally, I believe we should all live by this motto –
“Supporting others success won’t ever dampen yours.”

Inspiration Post: The Perfect Summer Bathroom

House + Love = Home.

I don’t know about you but personally I feel most relaxed in a long hot bath – with plenty of bubbles and a few candles. That’s the perfect kind of bathroom for me but aside from that I like a sleek, bright and fresh looking bathroom. Light walls, gleaming silver accessories and spotlights.
