Surprises you NEVER saw coming!

We've all seen it, in fact most of us have been it...those doe-eyed newbie bloggers, fresh and eager, with their gleaming mac-book air (purchased for a bargain on Shpock or Ebay) ready to take the world by storm with their voice- we LOVE them...seriously, the Digital Influencer Industry has more inspiration, motivation and just general enthusiasm than any other industry we've seen.

Where were we?

Oh yeah,

So you start your blogging journey...and, just like with any good post-Christmas diet- it starts off well, but...hold on, what's this?

Knowing Your Numbers

It’s a hot topic worldwide, not just in the UK but ‘qualifying’ your results seem to be on every Brand, Agency and PR’s mind at the moment- proving that a digital influencer not only has the reach, but that their engagement is high is the first requirement when looking for Digital Content Creators to partner with brands now.

#Bloghour - Knowing Your Numbers

Your Blogger Business

Last week during #BlogHour we touched on the topic of becoming a full time blogger and the different blog labels. When does the label change and when are you defined from being a hobbyist to commercial blogger. More importantly, is a label needed at all?


Your Journey as a Blogger

Every bloggers journey is different.

Many bloggers create their web, text and social media platforms as their own diary, rather than the intention of turning into a 'celebrity influencer'. Every year the awards likes to set an inspirational theme and with the planning for 2018 very much underway, we want to hear what you would like to see the awards bring in 2018.


Wisdom and Defiance across the blogosphere

The events that have hit the UK in recent weeks will have impacted our community in different ways and for different reasons. 

Community is the one thing that not only pulls the British country together but also makes us stronger. The blogosphere is part of that community and upholds a powerful voice in tackling extreminism. This evening's #BlogHour will be about discussing wisdom and defiance in the best British way possible, over a cup of tea (it is only Tuesday afterall).


Cyber in the Blogosphere

You arrived at your desk this morning, switched on your laptop/ desktop and the security alert appeared that your system has not been backed up recently. The notice that has reminded you for the past two weeks because you have been too busy  and side tracked to develop your most recent post or respond to the string of emails that are pilling up in your inbox.


International Interaction | #BlogHour

Out of nowhere, May is here and we are already thinking about what is in store for content creators for the remainder of 2017.

Developing creative content daily and weekly is a task in itself, so where do you find your inspiration? Tonight during #BlogHour at 9pm we will discuss thinking outside of the box and venturing outside of the UK to help grow your content community further. Check out tonight's questions below:

Q1. Do you follow any blogs or vlogs that are not based in the UK? If so, how does their content differ? #BlogHour


Your Blog Campaign | #BlogHour

It was the UK Blog Awards 2017 on Friday and Director, Gemma Newton shared her views on the industry and how bloggers can have a stronger power of influence than the biggest media houses. One thing she did discuss was that digital has provided bloggers (and everyone else) with a voice, which can provide and drive opportunity to change perceptions and be recognised as a thought leader through campaigning with an authentic voice. Gemma encouraged the audience to not follow the crowd, but create your own by thinking outside of the box.


Pre UK Blog Awards 2017 and Your Community #BlogHour

The UK Blog Awards 2017 event is approaching this Friday with the days now down to single fingures on the countdown and we cannot wait for the community to come together to network, learn from each other, encourage and innovate.

Whether you chose to enter yourself into the awards process (why should you not be proud of your own achievements) or were lucky enough to be nominated or event if the awards 'are not your thing', that's fine too. One thing we do have in common is community and enjoying the 'good' of this ever changing industry.
