When To Take A Break
18th December 2014|BeautyFashionLifestylePhotographyTechUncategorised

When To Take A Break

When To Take  A Break

Sometimes in life you just have to take a break and step back in order for you to go forwards and thats exactly what i did don’t ask me why i just felt i should take time out from all things social and blogging as i felt i wasn’t giving my best and I’m all about giving all you can and not giving half arsed attempts at anything.
For me thats what i felt i was doing i’d lost the motivation for writing and if you know me and follow me all over social media you know i love it and i interact all the time well even that wasn’t interesting me i just don’t know why so thats why i decided id just take some time out and get perspective and my GOD it helps bring you back into the right frame of mind i had a notebook and pen and just used that for thoughts instead of using my phone or computer even though i took time out for about a week for me it was long enough now it might take you longer but id recommend it to anyone who’s been feeling lost or confused in terms of the content they make online weather it be youtube or blog .

it might be hard at first for you too just stop but it will be the best thing you do the signs for needing a break are simple

  1. Lack of motivation
  2. Lack of sleep
  3. Constantly feeling that the content you create isn’t good enough
  4. Loss of interest
  5. Stress
  6. No interest in food
  7. And generally just feeling down

Now those are just a few signs but everyone is different and you might have different ways of coping with lack of motivation but for me a break was needed and i encourage everyone too do the same even if you just take a  weekend or  two you will feel a lot better limit the time you spend creating content as its far far far to easy to get overwhelmed and swamped you don’t need content up everyday by doing that theres a chance you will be rushing and it won’t be the best content you can create.

Ive also found that support helped & there has been a quite few lovely bloggers that helped me out over on twitter and i appreciate the support you AWESOME People have given me you know who you are (ps blog post featuring you lovely people coming soon :P) I’m overwhelmed with the support I’ve got i never knew people cared that much about me and my blog/youtube channel but you do so that means a lot

Anyway i think I’ve rambled enough now just remember if you feel you need a break take it it doesn’t matter how long you take make sure its long enough that you are recomposed and ready and raring to go.

As always much love you people are amazing

How To Email PR Agencies/Request Review Products

How To Email PR Agencies/Request Review Products

How To Email PR Agencies/Request Review Products

So I’m seeing lots of people that are wanting the pleasure to be able to receive products from companies for review either on there blog or youtube channels and the majority of these people seem to be messaging in the wrong way or tweeting in the wrong way so I’m here on hand with some useful tips that will hopefully help you with the way you contact PR Agencies or request from companies direct.
Just as a disclaimer before you read this post I’m not claiming that I’m and expert I’m just sharing common sense tips that hopefully will help.

  1. Give details on the views that your Blog/YouTube Channel or both gets on a daily and monthly basis ( Screenshots of googleanalytics are useful)
  2. Keep the email brief but give enough information so that you can get across who you are & what you do
  3. Explain that by going with your review request what you can offer them that maybe someone else can’t and also try be unique what separates you from everyone else
  4. Tell them all of your social credentials and where they can find you online just so they have some idea of the following you have i.e. twitter/youtube/bloglovin/facebook/instagram.
  5. Let them know what you plan on doing with the product after the review if they want it back then promise to return it or see if they wouldn’t mind you keeping it for yourself or even for a giveaway video or post

What do I blog & vlog about ?

What do I blog & vlog about ?

What do I blog & vlog about ?

So I’ve been wondering for sometime what I should be blogging & blog about I think my main problem is I want to try and please everyone but I think I want my blog & youtube channel to be my place on the internet that can I post what I like when I like.

What content can you expect from my blog & YouTube channel?
Tech Content
My Photography Work/Photography Related Content
Men’s Fashion
Men’s Beauty & Hair ( possibly )
Random Vlogs
Lifestyle Stuff
Current events & news stories that interest or annoy me

I think we get the gist that I’m posting about what ever I like and I do hope that some of these subjects interest you I’m going to try and cater for everyone and i don’t really know where this posting is now going as i seem like I’m rambling on but what i really wanted to say is that ti have no set agenda with my blog and no set schedule so there maybe times when there are no post and times when there are 50 a day.
This is a personal blog I’m just a one man band and I’m not a brand with tonnes of cash that I’m plowing into my blogging/vlogging for me this is a hobby and want to thank everyone who is supporting me with this.
