Bloggers – Three Posts You Need To Read

Three must read blog posts


Over the last few weeks, amid the many blog posts I’ve read or scanned through, three have really stood out and so I thought I would share them with you today – sharing the love if you like.

Lydia Elise Millen –  How To Really Grow A Social Media Following  – The truth, lies And How To Spot The Fakes

Now and then I stumble upon a blog post which appears to be waving a flag – I’m here – read me! A post where scanning through it just isn’t an option. I want to read it word for word, like a good book I can’t put down. One of my favourite bloggers is Lydia Elise Millen as we share a mutual love of fashion, and all things beautiful. Fashion isn’t often the focus of my content, however, there’s an on-going love affair with dressing well and looking good which isn’t about to leave me anytime soon.

Stepping away from fashion and beauty for a moment, Lydia’s latest post covers the subject of social media and how to grow your following, organically. This is a well-loved subject within the blogosphere and one which many will relate to. If this is a subject close to your heart, why not head over to LydiaEliseMillen and have read. You’ll be glad you did!

Devoted To Pink – Bloggers – let’s Stand Up To Bullying

Ultimate #Girlboss Leah Flavell is another inspirational UK blogger who covers varied beauty and lifestyle subjects over on her blog Devoted To Pink. Recently, Leah teamed up with BullyingUK and posted on the topic of bullying, mainly to highlight its prevalence in the world of blogging. This post stood out to me as whilst recently scrolling through my Twitter feed I noticed a comment thread where a blogger appeared to have her own opinion on another’s content – I was amazed to see just how many other bloggers had jumped on the bandwagon, joining in with a barrage of hateful comments.

I imagine the majority of us have experienced some form of bullying during our childhood, but when the perpetrators are grown women –  it becomes all the more unacceptable somehow. However, In the main, the blogging community is supportive, friendly and encouraging, but there will always be those with jealousy issues or for whatever reason may develop a disliking to a fellow blogger. Leah’s post covers where to go for help and what to do should you witness bullying online. It’s a wonderfully informative post and well worth a read. Find it here – Devotedtopink

I’m always on the lookout for blogging tips and advice and when it comes to “blogger help” posts, I’m all over them. This is a favourite subject of mine and I’ve learnt so much from reading up on various help posts written by bloggers. Lindsay’s post on improving your DA (domain authority) score is a great read. I’m always checking my own score and seeing what I can do to Improve it. My PA (page authority) is always higher than my DA but I want to try and level them up a bit.

    Ohhhh I love this post! I love Lydia and to be honest I hardly read her posts because I usually watch her videos on YouTube. I must read that particular post and like you I enjoy reading blogging tips and advice. Devotedtopink is super useful too and I really need to sort my DA score out, it’s sooo hard to increase. XHL
