5 Questions to ask yourself when you want to start a blog

My blogging journey began end of 2012, beginning of 2013, so not even that long ago. I had stumbled upon several beautiful food blogs in search of certain recipes. Before that I had heard of the term 'blog' but never really submerged myself into the subject. When I came across these food blogs however I began to realize how nice it would …

Setting boundaries in my business - Part II

A couple of weeks ago I wrote part I of this blog post in which I shared what I have learned so far from having my own little business and how to balance it with my private life and my own goals and wishes. I knew that I was going to write a second post on this subject soon because at the time I wrote it I felt like I was on a cross road with my …

Freebie Fridays #47 - The First Free Blogger Template

In my last post on Wednesday I wrote about starting a new project called 'Share The Blog Love' in which I share free downloadable Blogger templates from time to time.

Excited to announce this new project! - Share The Blog Love

Hi everyone! I skipped my usual post on Monday due to lack of time, but I'm back today with a message that will probably make up for that skipped post ;-)
For a long time I've been thinking about starting some kind of project to help out people who want to start a blog, but don't have the funds for a designer layout. Of course Blogger…

Freebie Fridays #46 - Patterned Labels

This week I've been talking about using labels in Blogger blogs and what they do, so I thought it would be a fun idea to close off this week with a set of 3 digital labels for this episode of Freebie Fridays. Of course these labels are completely different from the ones used in Blogger ;-)
This set of 3 labels are .PNG files with a transparen…

Blogger's Label & Category Gadget

In my previous post I talked about how you can create a page on your menu bar that links to all the posts of a certain label. If you are struggling with the definition of pages and labels, I suggest you read that post first before diving into this one.
As I already wrote in that last post, the option to create a page for one particular label in t…

How to create pages and link them to labels in Blogger

It might be no surprise that I really like Blogger as my blogging platform since both this business blog and my personal blog run on it. But for a Blogger newbie some of the gadgets that Blogger offers can be really confusing. One thing that keeps showing up in my contact with clients is the difference between pages and labels. What are they and …

Freebie Fridays #45 - Media Sheets for Blogs

Since I had quite a busy week I decided to go for the easy route again on this episode of Freebie Fridays and use a design that I already made a while back. Up until recently I offered so called Media Kits for blogs and websites in my Etsy shop. A media kit is basically a resume of your website's/blog's statistics with some other interest…

Setting boundaries in your business - Part I

I think the most difficult thing I get faced with now that I have my own little business is setting boundaries. Boundaries to the time I spent weekly on my business, boundaries to the services I'm offering and boundaries to clients that tend to demand way too much from me. I've never been good at telling people 'no', but it gets b…
