As you most probably know I make no income from my passion projects. I gave up trying to make a career out of writing a long time ago be it freelancing or my own stuff. With this in mind on a recent review I realised I was spending too much on my passion projects, especiallyContinue reading “Budgeting for your passion projects”
I thought I’d revisit this one after coming into taking another little social media break. I truly believe if you want to blog more then come off social media. I don’t mean delete your account, I mean delete the apps on your phone and replace them with your blogging platform app. Anything you were goingContinue reading “How to blog more”
I’ve been away for a while but I’m trying to get back in the habit of using iA Writer for my blogging. The WordPress app (for me) has gotten to the point that it’s slowing me down and forcing me to use their block editor. My only concern is how I easily publish to WordPressContinue reading “Using iA Writer again”
I’ve always seen my blog as somewhere I can share my passions, not one thing but across multiple interests. What I’m finding is I got little to no feedback or views on non tech content. I’m not saying this is a bad thing as it’s given me somewhere to get stuff off my chest asContinue reading “Figuring out what to write about”
I’ve put pressure on myself in the past to post something everyday but if you’re not reliant on income from your blog then it’s perfectly fine to post as and when you have something to say. For me I’m on a break from social media at the moment so this is my only outlet. I’veContinue reading “It’s ok not to post daily”

I’ve gotten drawn back into the habit of having Tweetbot on my home screen and checking my social feed as a habit. I need to work on this and turn it into time for creating or just zoning out. For the month of November I’m going to be off social media, for me that’s Twitter.Continue reading “No social media November”
I’ve made a change to the blog today and moved to a darker theme. Hoping this new theme doesn’t blow people’s eyes out in the middle of the night, plus its good to have a change every now and again.
I’m done with trying to help me pay for hosting the blog via Wordads. Tested them again over the last few days and so many negative or sketchy ads on my site. Back to no ads and a good feeling.
If you’re following me on social you’ll know I’m trying to pull back but I’ve discovered that it’s how I get the majority of feedback on my writing these days. I’m lucky that I do still get comments on my blog but do suffer with spam comments I need to manage. The amount of spamContinue reading “How I’m getting feedback on my writing”
