SAHD, SAHM, single mum, working mum, gay dad, gay mum, LBGT mums and dads, single dads, stepdad, stepmum, divorced dad, divorced mum. This list is endless when describing what sort of mum or dad you are, although I have very rarely seen the term 'working dad'.

Ok, so I'll be the first to admit this... I'm not quite where I wanted to be in my career. Yes, I've worked in PR for years for some of the big corpor...

If you regularly share business, blog or personal content via social media, you could be making your approach a lot easier by using a scheduling tool. Before I get stuck into the reasons why, I just wanted to go over what social media schedulers do.

When I was 22 I lost my brother. He developed cancer of the spinal fluid which eventually spread to his brain and succumbed to his illness in late 2006 - from the first headaches to his last breath, the illness took ten months to take him away.

If you're currently studying for a doctorate, I would really recommend joining the community of PhD bloggers out there. You might find that it makes you feel that bit less lonely at your laptop.

No one wants to be caught out abroad. Tourist scams can affect anyone. At best, they're annoying, but at worst they can be dangerous.

Five Years Of Blogging

Beth Britton

To fulfill this aim, I could only ever have begun a blog about dementia. A very 'uncool' topic maybe, but much like my dad's 19 years with dementia, blogging about dementia has taught me a lot. It's also been an amazing therapy. But why?

Four Essential Steps Towards Getting Your Business Noticed Online

Your business isn't going to run itself, and if you want to be noticed in a competitive space, you must put the work in. For instance, the fancy website that you paid good money to have designed isn't going to be enough on its own to get your business noticed.

Society And Tattoos

So, why are people made to feel like they have done wrong? Why should they second guess their choices in getting tattooed? How does a person's artwork on their skin, deem them different to the 'norm' of society?

If you cannot handle a woman being seen in public because it hurts your feelings to see her happy, remove yourself, it is absolutely not her duty to hide herself away. She owes you nothing.

I'm Back! A Little Explanation For My Relative Silence!

So you'll probably all have noticed that I haven't been around for a while; or perhaps you hadn't noticed but now I come to mention it... but I'm going to indulge myself and pretend that you had all most definitely noticed my absence, even if you hadn't missed my ramblings.

Fashion Helped Me Cope With The Death Of My Mother

banner I like who I am. I am my mother's daughter and I see flashes of her every time I look at my photographs. Yes I have inherited a wobble of the upper arm but I'm also blessed with strong, poker straight, natural coloured hair; trouble free skin and good teeth. I've learned that good posture, the art of bothering and wearing the right colours transform me. Some would say these are tricks of the eye - I would agree.

Hello, I Am A Digital Immigrant

I genuinely think the world was a softer place where there was less threat of a child catching a glimpse of breaking news that would scar their growing brain cells. Of course Maggie Thatcher must have made a damning speech in parliament and the Berlin Wall came down within my news era, but I was never subjected to it with the same brutality that a child could be today.

Every day I edit and publish blog posts written by people affected by cancer. Writing a post can be an incredible emotional relief, a way for people to share their story, raise awareness of what they've been through, and connect with others.

I write to keep those that care about us updated about Tink's progress (or not, as the case may be!). I write to share the funny things she does, the little things that amaze me or worry me. She's awesome and I want the world to know!

I Am No Longer Just A Mummy. I Am A Blogger

Yes I have learnt a wealth of things about website creation, website hosting, domains, SEO, readability, passive voice (the bane of my life!), blog promotion, social media, scheduling and the thing every blogger stresses about, the almighty DA. These are things I didn't even know about before I became a blogger.

In this sense, blogging can be purposeful by helping to raise people's awareness of the psychological, emotional and physical effects of cancer. Bloggers can lay out their thoughts and feelings honestly and sincerely.

Super Sleepers- An Urban Legend?

We have been so blessed with both of our boys being super sleepers, although I did have my fair share of sleepless nights with my eldest boy Maximus, especially around teething time and when he was feeling poorly. Admittedly, Max was sleeping through from about 12 weeks but he still had a bottle and his nappy changed during the night.

How will Rocco feel about me letting the world see him in fancy dress outfits, covered in ice cream, looking super cute in a santa baby grow? On Insta I try and be more arty, it doesn't work, the extent of me being creative is turning the image into black and white.

Unless you've been underneath an Instagram rock lately you would have seen the ever growing group of females, mostly all Mum's, taking over your feed and flooding you with their Kick-Ass vlogs, blogs and books. And, it certainly is impressive.

When Is A Blog No Longer A Blog?

A blog by definition is an online diary of one person's views or ramblings on a subject of their choice which of course could be parenting, cooking, beauty or indeed any subject they wish to choose to write about and share on the Internet.
