TV and Netflix downtime is pretty tough

It can be a real nightmare when our TV breaks. Especially if you rely on it to entertain the kids when you are busy cooking or cleaning. But, thankfully, most TV issues can be easy to fix yourself. If your box isn’t picking up a very good signal, you might just need to move the aerial.

Try it on a different side of your property to see if it picks up a better signal there. If you have a Sky Box, the problem could be at their end, so give them a quick call. Still have a problem? Then you might need to call out a handyman who deals with TV Repair.

Doors swell, squeak and jam

Is one of your doors particularly difficult to open or close? You may need to sort out the door frame, as these can often need replacing. This might sound like a difficult task, but it is remarkably simple to do.

Simply take off the door and then remove the trim and the jamb. You can then ensure the door sits correctly in the frame. Still sound pretty difficult? No problem – just call your local carpenter or joiner.

Fresco dining = bugs in your house

The summer is prime time for pest and rodent infestations. There are many ways you can prevent this, though. You just need to store leftover food in the fridge out of the way, and also make sure you regularly clean your kitchen. However, if […]

Write for your niche

If you have a small existing audience in place, you first need to think about how you will keep hold of them. They will form the basis of your future audience as it begins to grow. So, don’t be tempted to chase after new readers because this might cause you to lose the ones you have.

It’s all about getting that balance right. Offer readers what they want and expect from your blog. If you keep doing this, then people should keep coming back for as long as the quality of the content remains high.

Know which posts are popular

It’s simple to track the popularity of your posts. The ones that get the most views, likes and retweets are the ones that are most popular. You need to take note of which ones are most popular. And then you can start to think about why those posts are more popular than others.

There is usually an underlying reason for a particularly post’s popularity. When you understand what makes those posts popular, you can repeat the formula more often to gain more visits.

Start guest posting

It can be difficult when you are figuring out how to promote your travel blog. You probably can’t afford advertising, and growing your social media following can be a long process. One thing that you should definitely do is use guest posts.

These guests posts will be posted on other, more established blogs. They prove to people that you are a good writer and give you access to a bigger audience. After people have read your post, they might want to check out your […]

Hey there! I’m Sam, a lover of Scandinavian homeware, floppy eared bunnies and pepperoni pizza. It’s probably easiest to re-wind a little, to tell you about who I am and about my little blog!

During university I was lucky enough to take part in a study abroad exchange for a semester in Queensland, Australia studying psychology and marketing at Griffith University, Gold Coast.
