Gosh, doesn’t that look
delicious. I don’t even have a sweet tooth but daaaaaamn! So instead of putting on approximately 27 stone in meringue consumption alone, I’ll just busy myself with things like this…
Do your readers care about fashion week? This article was so interesting and talks about something I’ve been thinking about for a long time regarding wedding bloggers at wedding industry events.
♥ Don’t worry about what other people say. They’re not always right.
♥ Things I learnt from being a waitress (& part 2)
♥ Create a blogging posse – but this is not just for bloggers. Anyone running their own small business should do the same!
♥ We teach people how to treat us – what to do if your clients won’t pay up!
♥ Darren Rowse of Problogger fame just published a really interesting and useful article about the 3 essential components to his online publishing business
“Blogging is for showing expertise (CONTENT), Social Media is for interaction (CONVERSATION) and Email is for CONVERSION” –
Should I work for free?
♥ What makes a great portfolio site?
♥ The Lara Jade vs Joey L photography tutorial DVD is currently on sale with a whopping 35% off! (ps I’ve watched this and its great. If you’re interested in getting into fashion photography it’s a must see).
♥ The one thing I wish someone would have told me when I started blogging
“When you first start out blogging, you’re hungry. You’re excited. You have a million ideas. But nobody talks about how you’ll feel five years in. Five years is a long time out and once you’ve gone on that long, you’re in the minority because a sizable portion of your peers will have given up by then. After five years, ideas don’t always come in as quickly. The inspiration doesn’t always hit as swiftly. Or, it comes in waves. For instance, I hadn’t introduced a new column in close to a year and now in the last two weeks, I’ve launched two. Move fast when you’re inspired!” –
This video is three years old but its still pretty interesting. I feel that wedding blogs are currently at the stage fashion blogs were when this was made… (although an
article published just this month by the same journalist had a much less optimistic view of said fashion bloggers, although the rebuttal by The Manrepeller is awesome!)

Business Bites: Working Like a Machine…
July 5, 2013
My feet have not touched the ground since I got home on Wednesday night... I literally feel like an old machine cranking back up to full speed... I'll get there but it might take me a few days! I'm not going to lie though, I'm feeling quite overwhelmed and a little stressed out about everything I have on right now, but it's all good, I'm just taking each day hour at a time! Sheesh maybe I need to write a blog post titled 'How to get shit done in no time at all...'
Business Bites: Get Over It and Get It Done

Late one night this week, as I was battling the jet lag and working on blog posts way past 3am, I was simultaneously having an email conversation with Paul Jarvis: web designer, writer and all round awesome dude, If you haven't obsessed over Paul's work yet by the way, where have you been?

Business Bites: Giving Up Guilt
October 11, 2013
It's the same old song and dance. I got to Australia for our final leg of The Blogcademy 2013 tour in a little under two weeks (cue major freak out!) and so I'm spending most of my waking hours desperately trying to get as much blog content written and scheduled for while I'm away. This is no mean feat when you have at least two blog posts per day for three and a half weeks to do (not to mention the blog posts before I go as well!) ARGH.

August 2, 2013
Considering I don't have a sweet tooth at all, I sure do pin a lot of pretty sweet treats... hum, I wonder what that says about my psyche? I hope you've all had a brilliant and productive week. I'm really looking forward to this weekend because I'm going out - not once but twice! Sheesh, what a party animal. Now excuse me I better go and grab a quick disco nap before the chaos commences!
