Well, it finally happened. I sat down to write this weeks post in my regular Sunday blogging series and… nothing.

It’s not that I don’t have anything left to say about blogging, I hasten to add. I have a list of possible topics that I normally turn to every week (If I haven’t been hit by the inspiration stick, that is), but this time I looked at the list and none of the topics really excited me, so rather than force myself to sit down and churn out a post that even I’m not that interested in, I thought I’d take the opportunity to:

a)  Take a bit of a breather. Because taking a break every now and then is one of my top tips for bloggers, seriously. (Ooh, look! I DID manage to write something blog-tippy after all!) I dunno about you, but anytime I take a holiday, I always come home bursting with ideas, and plans – not just for the blog, but for the house, and, well, LIFE, basically. Terry HATES the weeks following any holiday we take, because he knows that’s when I’m going to decide I want to start ripping down walls, or building extensions with my bare hands or something. Luckily the motivation I have for blogging is normally a little less extreme…

b) Find out what you actually want me to write about in this series. Because I’ve answered a few questions I’ve had along the way, but for the most part I’ve been just making it up as I go along, and it occurred to me that there might be some really obvious questions that I’m missing because I have my blogger goggles on.

Anyway, this is your chance to ask me anything – about blogging, ideally, but feel free to throw in any other questions too, if you feel like it. I’m not promising I’ll be able to answer every single one –  I prefer to write about the kind of things I feel I can offer some kind of personal insight/perspective on, rather than stuff I’d just have to Google, if that makes sense? – but if I can help, I’ll do my very best. Oh, and if you’re not sure what I’ve already written about, here’s a list, just for you!

[P.S. The strawberries have absolutely nothing to do with this post, by the way. They were damn tasty, though.]

    1. That’s one of those “I would have to Google it” ones, unfortunately : I’ve never really paid much attention to domain authority or done anything to try to increase it…My understanding is that it’s all about getting high quality backlinks to your site, but as I said, that’s just from Googling it: I don’t have any personal insight on that one, I’m afraid!

  1. I’m addicted to posts with pros and cons about website layout. I can’t remember if I read a post about your layout pet peeves, if so please send me the link. I’d love to reread it. 🙂

    1. I just try to remember to read them over a couple a times before I publish them (then rely on my mum to email me if she spots something I’ve missed!)… I think the only thing approaching a “tip” would be to always preview the post on your blog (I don’t know how other platforms work, but with WordPress there’s a “preview” button which lets you see what it’ll look like when it’s published) rather than just proofreading it in the dashboard – for some reason that makes the mistakes easier to spot for me, and it also lets you see any issues with the formatting etc!

  2. My blog is in its early days and I want to make sure I have all the right WordPress Plugins installed. Which ones do you use/recommend? Thanks A x
