I’m taking part in the Tiny Forest Blog’s It’s all about me link up party. This is my first ever link up. So without further ado…here we go.1. How do you stay motivated?
Before starting my blog I did a lot of research into blogging and how you become successful at blogging. During that time I subscribed to a number of newsletters on a wide range of topics, such as SEO, promoting those posts, increasing your blog readership and using social media.
As a result I get a number of emails daily or weekly with new ideas or techniques to try out in doing all of the above or just an inspirational little story. So if I’m not motivated to write, I might follow a technique for promoting one of my existing posts, or try out new hashtags to use on social media. I also browse through Pinterest just to get the creative juices flowing again and to always keep moving forward.
Some of my favourite newsletters are from Jon Youshaei from everyvowel.com, Brian Dean from backlinko.com and Carrie Green from Female Entrepreneur Association
2. What’s your favorite “cheat day” food?
Ermm…I know this is bad but I really love the instant noodles that come in a cup. There is a brand called Mamee Chef that does a flavour called Lontong that is outstanding. The Curry Laksa flavour is also very good. It’s instant gratification.
3. What’s one thing you do for your mental health?
Looking after my dogs and making sure they are happy. I might be written off as the girl who is overly fond of dogs but you should never underestimate how much a pet contributes to staying on an even keel. I think a lot of it has to do with being responsible for another being and the unconditional love you get in return for it.
4. How do you relax?
I love watching TV shows. I’m currently catching up on early seasons of Hawaii FiveO
5. How do you spend your ideal lazy Sunday?
Reading a good book or catching up on TV shows with my sister.
