THERE are millions of blogs out there. Millions. Millions of people sharing their stories, giving intimate glimpses of their lives and hoping to be noticed. It’s hard to get your blog out there. It takes time, effort, resilience, creativity and bags of determination. But if you’re not careful, a couple of bad moves (or one if you’re unlucky) and all that hard work of yours can go to pot. Attracting people
STARTED your Christmas shopping yet?! Nope? Me neither! But fret not my beauties! We’ve still got a good few weeks to go and, kind soul that I am (*winks*), I’ve decided to do my bit for the festive season and share some gift ideas with you all, which will hopefully make life a little easier or perhaps get you out of a gifting pickle.
