Building My Blog – July 2016

Welcome to my 25th monthly blog update, all about what I got up to behind the scenes of Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen in July 2016.

Apologies that the post is a bit late this month. One of the reason I blog is that it is something I can fit around the boys and the summer holidays have meant that the balance between blogging and spending time with my family has shifted. We’ve been having a great summer with Daniel’s 6th birthday (keep an eye out for his cake over the next few days), a trip down to London and lots of days out, but it has meant that I’ve not had as much time on here as I usually do.

As you know (if you’re a regular reader) I’ve been slowly moving towards earning money from my blog so as the blog building has been a bit quiet, I thought I’d share some tips for getting started with sponsored posts instead.

Building My Blog – June 2016

Welcome to my 24th monthly blog update, all about what I got up to behind the scenes of Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen in June 2016.

24th update? Yes, that means I’ve now been blogging for a whole 2 years! In some ways I still feel like a complete newbie, but I’m struggling to remember a time before I spent all day long thinking about cooking, photography and social media. I remember after having children wondering what on earth I did to fill my time before they arrived and it’s very much the same feeling I have about blogging.

This month I’m going to be talking about being a loser, my thoughts on Food Blogger Pro and switching from Lightroom to Photoshop for my photo editing.
