Happy Summer everyone! The sun is out (for now at least), I have a tan (for now at least) and it’s time to relax and enjoy the long days, warm nights and all the fun and games summer time brings. For this months Oh My Blog series, we’re finding out what bloggers from all across the country have to say about holidays. Be them in the UK or abroad, it’s the season to kick back and relax. So what does Jo from the wonderful Pickle & Poppet get up to before the kids head back to school?
I caught up with her to ask fifteen burning questions about her summer holidays.
Whether you are bored with Facebook or are looking for another platform other than Twitter to promote your blogging business, there are plenty of other options available to you. In today’s guide, we’re going to go through a few of the other popular platforms bloggers and the general public might benefit from outside of the mainstream channels that most people use.
Let’s take a closer look.
The idea of your blog being secure is probably not one you have given much time to. After all, for most bloggers it’s primarily a hobby, something that you do for pleasure. When you’re doing something for little more than the sake of enjoying it, why would you want to spend time thinking about such dull things?
Of course, for the professional bloggers (or those aspiring to be professional bloggers), there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration. If your blog is your little corner of the internet – basically, your home online – then security is something you need to think about. After all, you wouldn’t leave the door wide open to your real life home, would you? So why should your digital one be any different?
If you’re already a blogger, you will know that although blogging can be a lot of fun, and even quite lucrative for many, it can also be scary and upsetting at times. When you’re putting yourself out there, there are always going to be people who disagree with you and go out of their way to upset you and make you feel like throwing in the towel completely.
Although you should never let these cowardly trolls who hide behind online anonymity stop you from doing the thing you love, it’s sensible to do what you can to protect yourself and stay safe as a blogger.
