The five reasons you aren't getting blog engagement

You’re not engaging yourself  One of the best ways to start seeing an increase in engagement on your blog is to start engaging with others. Drop comments on other people’s posts and leave your blog link as an invitation to comment back. I’m far more likely to comment on someone’s blog if they have taken the time to comment on mine. It’s the “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” kind of philosophy. You have to log in toRead More

10 Tips for visiting Madrid!

Buy water from the local supermarkets – I found the hotel and cafes to be very over priced, I was charged €6 for a litre bottle that was only €0.70 in the local shop! If you’re going in summer bring lots and lots of sun cream. I saw so many very burnt people as I stood spraying myself with factor 50. The green man means you’re safe to cross, red man or amber means death. The local drivers will stopRead More

See a penny pick it up…

June 21, 2017 Lifestyle

Today was the first day of my internship. An internship that I so hope will turn into my career. I awoke with butterflies in my stomach, so eager to make a good impression and fearful that I wouldn’t live up to all that my employers had hoped for.
