Five Tips For Writing An Attention-Grabbing Headline

Do you select a heading before writing your blog post or article, or do you write your body of text first?

Whilst your preference is entirely up to you, I usually opt for the latter - choosing a title upon completion of writing my blog post. I much like the thought of my writing having the freedom to go as far afield as it needs to without the confines of a title forcing me to stay 'on topic'. But in reality, that is not always feasible. Besides, for many, the structure that a predetermined heading offers holds more appeal

Find out what she had to say when we caught up with her!

Top Tips for Getting The Most Out Of Your Networking Events

Today as I left for work I noticed a remarkable turn in the weather. As I wound my scarf around my neck to make it as airtight as possible, my mind wandered to the influx of festive parties and dinner invitations that are to come.Although the primary function of these events is to enjoy the festivities of the season, and perhaps celebrate all the hard work that has gone into the year, they also serve as great networking opportunities. Networking can be a daunting affair and up until I attended the Black British Bloggers mixer earlier this year, I had sworn off them entirely.
