How To Go on a Blogging Hiatus Without Abandoning Your Readers


Hello ladies!

We are back again with more blogging tips! This time we are focusing on how to take a break from blogging without just abandoning it altogether. From time to time, we'll all need a break because life can get overwhelming, but it can be confusing with for your followers if you abruptly stop posting with little explanation. What you don't want is for your readers to think you have totally quit the game when in reality you only went to rest a little.

Like all responsible adults, it's polite to let the neighbours know and to inform your family if you'll be out of town for a little while, and I am going to share some tips with you on how to do that with blogging.

The Eroticnoire Book Club: Review


When was the last time you took a tentative step into something that scares you a little? How many times have you tried something a little unconventional just for the excitement of it? Well, yesterday, I wandered into the sensational world of erotic fiction. I attended the launch of the Eroticnoire Book Club in London's Warren Street. Admittedly it wasn't my first foray into erotica. but when it comes to sharing that interest with a room full of strangers, it was definitely my first! I might not have picked up a single book from the 50 Shades series, I do have an impressive  Zane collection.

31 Life Lessons in 31 years


Tomorrow (Friday) is my birthday! whoop whoop! Despite my happiness, I must admit that I'm feeling a little more reflective than excited. This is quite in contrast to last year when I  welcomed my new age with much care-freeness and enthusiasm, and declared to the whole world that I was going to be 'fun and flirty at thirty'.

A  year really can make a difference and with more life experience, my thoughts are a little more profound this time around.

31 is a bit of an odd number to mark out for a post like this, however, that will be my age for the next year, so without much further ado, here are 31 life lessons I learned in 31 years.

Seven Reasons Why Reading Is Good For Your Mind


Hey ladies!

The earlier ascent of the sun each morning, followed by later sunsets is a good indication that we are approaching high summer. And as much as that precious vitamin D is putting most of us in better spirits, there are still many for whom the approach of summer makes little difference. Come rain or shine they have to fight a daily battle with their minds and emotions.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and I'm really glad that a whole month has been set aside to remind people of the need for us to develop more of an understanding of mental health issues. I thought this post could provide a sound backdrop to speak about the benefits that reading, be it a book or magazine has on the mind.

This Is How You Become a Freelancer


Hello ladies!

So, the word on the street is that you want to be a freelancer. On a blog post I wrote a while ago about how I got into copywriting, one of you lovely readers asked in the comments section,"how do you suggest starting to do freelance writing? What is the process of submitting articles?". I couldn't really answer directly, because there are several ways to eat your gari (grated cassava), abi? 

I started to think about the methods I have used or even considered, and thought I'd share some of these with you. This blog post offers some very practical tips so you may want to note down 2-3 actions you will take immediately to get you on your way to your freelancing dream.
