Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – My two current favourite apps

On Thursday I think it was it could might as well be on Friday last week I had two awesome apps for my iPad (by the way I’m not being sponsored for this) called “MindNode” and “TabletJournal” they are so awesome I fell upon them whilst looking through the whole App Store and I thought why not give them both a go to see what they are like.

Oh my word they are so good you could barely imagine; the reason for this is because it has unleashed my short stories that I’ve been struggling to write for a very long time without any prompts, not saying my daily challenges or any other stories that I’ve written in the past needed the apps but for me personally I found that they’ve woken up an old part of me that I use to do all those years ago. 

I use to do mind maps and everything in journals pieces of paper and so on. Also answer questions that I would write about to get me thinking of what story I wanted to write about. This was when I had word on my old laptop before it dyed on me for being so old; to which I had to buy a new laptop which was Apple Mac Pro I think it was then I sold it, which is annoying but I do hope I get a new one soon and do things again that I want to use it for. 

However my iPad has worked its wonders for now for over a year so it’s all good I like it. Mindnode is basically an app that you can create a mind map of what you want to do whether it’s for blogs, stories, business ideas and etc it’s so handy that you can create lots of different colours with it and many more ways to be creative with it that can help you.

TabletJournal app is like a normal like journal but on a app; you can use it for anything to be honest, I’m just going to use it for my short stories because I find it easier to answer my questions that I have planned out on Mindnode and be able to expand how I want to do but also to know the outline of the story before I write it completely. I use to do this sort of thing years ago to fill in the gaps with questions and colour code them so I know which ones are which. I am so ocd when it comes colour coding and organisations with my blogs and stories. 

You may find it with my pictures there’s certain things that I do with my pictures where I have to have the right sort of pictures for certain categories to the best of my ability. Presentation for me is important for me whether it’s for myself or for you guys. 

Star Light Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – Organisation goes out of the window over the weekend

So basically as you can tell todays blog post have arrived rather late today (2.7.18) due to things happening that I wish not to speak of right now or might not ever but I’m on the mends slowly. However my apologies for that. I literally had my whole weekend planned to organise myself what I wanted to write all in my head; especially for today’s blog post for Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging, this was meant to be about being organised on what you want to write and what ideas you may have in the near future. 

You could say I can still write about it you know. I actually could I just need to stop beating myself up about what happened over the weekend. Which is true. I need to stop and take control again. After falling asleep for a bit to regroup my thoughts and what I want to write about this. I’m not going to change the opening or the title it’s staying as it because knowing me I’ll be ending up saying the same thing to the original piece that I started. 

How to be organise your blog? 

In this side heading you will find in this blog on how to be organised in what you would like to write. This also works with blogging on YouTube than having hit and miss or dropping a load of blogs each day because you feel like you have to and so on. Also it works in normal life as well because I prefer to schedule myself monjority of the time so I know what I’m doing.

To be able to organise your blog you need to know wether your going to have set categories for you blog post like I do or not. I find for myself having set categories for each blog post helps me when I know which ones I’m writing for and then in the titles for example for this one as you can tell I put Star Life Categories – Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – Organisation goes out of the window over the weekend. Sometimes I put the date on sometimes I don’t it depends on how I feel but normally when it’s like Everyday Online Diary Entries or Online Diary Entries I tend to because it will give that feel factor of it’s actually a diary entry. 

I now and then write them for most post but not all the time; you even may notice that I’ve started to write dates in the post like this one because I know in a few days or weeks or months or years to come people will revisit and think oh this was written but it will still have the same effect in the future like the present time. This is because you still want people to read your old past post even they are reading your present; trust me pin pointing my old post and my new post has become so much easier doing the whole categories with the titles, the dates and so fourth and the reason behind it is that when I come to writing up my stats I know where to put them without getting so confused. 

How do you schedule what you want to write?

When it comes to scheduling what you want to write is sometimes hard you may find you just want to upload everything but this may not be a great idea because I’ve made a few mistakes doing that. The reason for it is because you’ll find that it will get missed or not be picked up by your readers as it might be too much for them. 

Sometimes you may find that you write a blog and think this isn’t what I wanted I’m not ready to post them yet. That’s when you find a neat button when you about to upload the post it may say immediate post with the date and time I know WordPress  does because I schedule my blogs all the time. You can set it on a different date and time when you want it; I know that WordPress as about four categories, publish, drafts, schedule and bin. You can always check your schedule what’s going out soon so you can remember and scheduling is also comes under organisation because if you forget a day to post for some odd reason something has happened on the day. You wouldn’t have to worry it be a nice surprise when you look up your stats and be like “oh yeah I remember writing that and schedule that for today. I don’t have to feel so bad about not posting anything” 

It is a common thing to forget or something happens like for example my weekend I know I published over the weekend even when things happened. It’s one of those things I beat myself up about it wether I have or not but at the end of the day I tell myself it’s okay you’ll bounce back. You have your full team of stags behind you and they aren’t leaving you behind. 

Everyday Online Diary Entries: (28.6.18) Thursday – Do you use maths everyday?

Do I use maths everyday? If I can help not really me and maths don’t get on its all to do with dyslexia and etc so I try not if I can. I just generally panic when I see numbers and I gave no matter the time or my energy or brain power to focus it on school or college no matter how many times I took the exam at college until my final year that I manage to pass it. I didn’t bother attending the rest of the lessons as they were doing level 2 numeracy and I just couldn’t be bothered because I was getting frustrated with it all.

The only thing I use maths in is my stats I like to keep a record of how much progress that I have over the weeks and months. Yeah it will take me an hour or so but I have a system of doing it and I’m revisiting my system for next month so that it will work swimmingly because sometimes it gets confusing along side the blog posts when I’ve been creating them. As I’ve been labelling them in away that helps me more what I’m looking at and most importantly my readers (you guys) know that there are more blog post out there of mine and along side old ones to which you guys are now starting to find.

It’s like saying I’m clearing out my blog site but I’m not really at the same time. I know that my blogs probably looking a bit busy or not I don’t know. I just write them, schedule them, post and hope for the best. However it’s making me feel the positive coming through as I’ve been getting the same amount of views each day. I like that a lot.

Star Light Categories: (18.6.18) Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging – How many blogs do you blog a day?

Word up guys! I hope you’re having the bless sunny day today (18.6.18) want to say a quick thank you for continuing to read my blogs yesterday (17.6.18) as I had become very ill over the weekend which wasn’t good. I am now on a slow but on the right tracks to get myself back onto the open road again. Along with my stag and you guys coming to the rescue with full force of your stats. Thank you if you are one of those people on here or on my instagram. We can do this together and stand strong. 

Onwards and upwards this is the second attempt of this writing this blog as I was on a role last week. Not 100% why I couldn’t finish it all off but I think I fell asleep whilst writing it. 

I genuinely try and write 2-3 blogs a day for the following day no matter what happens. I just believe that I can push out 3 as my limit but 4 is pure luck. I like the consistent within my blogs as much as I can. Knowing your limit of what you can blog and knowing when they are ready to go out. 

I like the fact that I do 2-3 blogs knowing the success of blogging three blogs out I know how to keep my readers entertained. Also keeps myself writing for you guys and myself to keep ourselves busy and not let our negativity get the better of us. 

Everyday Post: (10.6.8) Sunday – Revisiting Old Blog Posts Catergories

‘“Fine day Sunday. Best day of the weekend why is that Dudley?” Asked Uncle Vernon Dudley shrugged as he took a biscuit from Harry “Theres no post on Sundays” replied Harry offering Uncle Vernon a biscuit “right you are Harry. Ha no post on Sundays ha. Not one single bloody letter not one” excited Uncle Vernon.’

I am afraid to inform you that we are not in the muggle world of not having any post coming through our letter boxes on a Sunday nor are we in the world of wizardry world of the land of Harry Potter. You may ask why? Where are we? The land that you are walking on is the land of the Kennedy’s the most powerful family that ever lived; not the ex presidents of America don’t get me wrong they were amazing in their time of running.

Ah here we are. I have become so pleased that you guys have become extremely excited and finding out more of my other old diary entries. As you could see I’ve changed a fair bit on the whole presenting it with new pictures; new post to go with it, and many more.

I just gives me the pleasure that door has become widely open with flooding arms like an old pal that hasn’t forgotten after all this time. Reinventing old categories like Everyday Online Diary Entries has become more of an eye opener for me because when I first started it I didn’t know what to expect or would it take off like it would have done now.

I am now I’m revisiting some of my old categories and creating new ones for that category as you have now seen one of the new ones Everyday Evening Post. I am currently working on bringing back one of you guys favourite category that I haven’t done for a long time since February 2018. Watch this space with that one but it is in now going to be part of the support of Life On The Open Road Project. So watch out for that one.

Keep an out for the new updated and cool categories coming out over the coming weeks. Remember to subscribe and follow to my blog to be able to stay in touch of what’s coming up or just subscribe as you will get on going emails what’s just been posted.

Now let’s get you guys back home in the comfort of where you left wether it was you’re living room, outside, bedroom, bathroom or where ever you are. Remember you can’t tell anyone where the secret cave is.

Peace and love

Everyday Topics: (7.6.18) Thursday’s Topics: I could shoot myself in the foot with this one.

Okay guys I could shoot myself in the foot with this one here; yet this is my opinion and I respect other people’s opinions too, everyone has opinions neither of us are right or wrong. It’s brought to my attention in the last couple of days that I’ve been watching a few people’s videos to which I’m leaving out because I actually like their content. However what goes behind the scenes doesn’t bother me what so ever because at the end of the day it’s not my business nor do I really want to know what’s going on. I’m one of those people who like to pry on other people’s problems or anything. I just hate the whole attention, attention seeking and play off the whole who has more fan base or subscribers whatever they want to cool it.

I just enjoy the videos that they make at the end of the day; if they make me laugh, make me be on edge, make me want to come back for more then that’s great because at the end of the day I respect them for who they are and don’t really need to share their whole life stories like other people seem to do like it’s a home diary. For example: Big Brother Style. Some people like to do it, some people like to do other things that are different and have their own twist to it all. Yeah I write diary entries but I don’t tell you guys my life story in them; I literally choose what I want to share, what content I want to write about and plan it to make sense.

I don’t understand one thing people who say “I made you big” “no I made you big” and so on and so forth. I don’t actually care how they do it to be honest because at the end of the day fame doesn’t really bother me; you may find how much people think I did this on my own, it took me years to do and etc but yet if someone helped you along the way wouldn’t you be grateful that they helped you to get onto the platform?

Instead of being grateful or anything they just split off from you and cause conflict between all the friends that you both know. It’s just silly and childish at the end of the day. Unless your one of those people who fake making their videos; harass other YouTubers because they like them thinking that you’re going out with them, spreading lies that people stole you’re ideas and everything else. Also making it on the news saying you’re homeless and making a YouTube video saying “today is my last day in my home. I am now homeless” oh come on firstly use your brain and common sense.

First off all if you were made homeless you wouldn’t be still making videos; you wouldn’t have you’re camera to make videos still, and most importantly you wouldn’t have anywhere to edit or upload you’re video or videos. Secondly if you’re account has been cancelled or what ever it is that they do; you can’t make another YouTube account under the same name because they will find out, and shut that one down as well. Thirdly I can tell someone is lying, a fake and everything else years of experience with people in the real world. Acting like you’re all hard paying other people to do the work for you to make you look good because they are terrified of you as you might do something to them. Oh please just get over yourself man.

People take years to get where they are; things don’t happen over night trust me I’ve been doing blogging since the end of November 2015, it’s taken me this far to where I am with 1,317 subscribers I think I last checked and at the end of the day I’m doing the blogging and the writing for myself because I love writing and I want to become a writer. I also like to show people who have confidence issues, low self esteem and many more that they can do things if they put their minds to it and stick at it. Trust me I’ve been through a lot in my life. I’ve taken on so many challenges in my life away from the world of today.

I always say to anyone who is reading this or someone says to me I can’t do this. I stick to this saying for Life On The Open Road Project “be yourself, love yourself, don’t let negativity people bring you down and most importantly don’t let your own negativity mind bring you down” I believe that people can do things if they put their mind to it changing what they think about themselves take chances that you want to do with your life. Just make the right decisions and not the wrong ones.

I know I’m quite straight forward in this blog than I normally am but I just wanted to put it out there that you make a decision wether a youtubers or any other blogger you come across tries to win you over or make you think the other person is wrong. Just don’t let them manipulate you in any other way because at the end of the day it’s you’re mind who you want to watch, read or be friends with if your a blogger reading this or a new blogger just about to start out. Just be you and that’s all that matters don’t let people change of who you are or what you should do with your life or your content.

I just want what’s best for you at the end of the day that’s all. Just be you and stay true to yourself no matter what the out come is. Try their idea if it doesn’t work it doesn’t work because at the end of the day you have to find away what works for you. Apologies if this became a rant but I just wanted to get this sort of topic out there in one peace.

Love you all. You are you that’s what all that matters.

Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging: Consistence of blogging

Word up people! How we are all doing today? Another glorious sunny warm day for a Bank Holiday Weekend yes the UK gets two in one month and then a week of Half Term that’s if you work in a school or transport you get these nice holidays. I did plan a Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging Sunday  (27.5.18) I didn’t really like it so Monday of all days (28.5.18) I decided to write a bit of a better one that makes sense to me. 

The fact that the heat doesn’t help nor my room or my iPad getting warm I just want to sleep yes I didn’t get to sleep until gone 3 am last night once again thank you ever so much mental health. I’m fighting to stay awake to get this blog up and running as soon as possible and make some sense of it all. My bad guys I fell asleep due to the heat haha. 

So much of me being so consistent of being blogging; that’s right consistent of blogging is where you have to have some sort game plan of what you want for the week, knowing what content you want to talk about by planning something or know roughly what you want to write about or talking about. 

Being consistent of blogging is always a good thing by coming up with new content to draw your readers, viewers and new readers/views. Always go back to what your original ideas but create a different way you never done it before. However there are lots of things that bloggers could possibly discuss, disagree or even biker about something that’s not true. 

Most of them will agree on some areas of this consistency of blogging is practice, practice, practices don’t give up because if blogging extremely important that’s if you want to succeed online for yourself which is a good reason and the motivation for your success is doing it for yourself no one else. There is several good reasons for having an outlook when it comes to blogging; you will find dedicated bloggers out there who are much closer to success than I dedicated ones, there is absolutely no denying that and you wonder why you think blogging is so important.

You starting to question why is blogging so important to me? As I mentioned at the top I’m quite bad at being consistent of blogging recently however you guys know that I come back with some better content and know what to expect when I apologise if I haven’t posted anything for awhile. Yet I’ve been quite consistent over recent weeks; however blogging can be a consistent basis that makes a huge difference, you may find some people is a consistent by daily blogging while for others once a week that normally does the trick. Honestly it doesn’t make that much of a difference you are the boss at the end of the day as long as you set up an expected schedule you can stick to it. Decision of being realistic by posting, scheduling you know you can hit the consistently and be charge of what you want from there.

Loyalty of being online can be attention that could span over so many generations; while plenty of bloggers are being successful with a once a week, some can get away with a couple posts a month and you won’t find any blogger out there who go silent for several months on end that they can pick up where they have left off. A long absence can mean lose the following that’s just the way it is at the end of the day. I know it sounds harsh sand critical about the consistent of blogging but that’s how life is at the end of the day. I’ve had that done to me a few times but like I said I always apologise and keep my followers updated. That shows the loyalty of what’s happening they respect that because they know that they can look at the other blog posts that I’ve written before. 

Main keywords in that stand out to you and also when your writing your blogs you can try to involve combination of words that may never been used before use it in your blogs. The more post, the more exciting words you find and use you will find that readers come to your blogs more often and knowing you’re regulars. Having regular readers along with the words that draw them in makes them want to come again and wanting more from you.

Authority can help make you a stronger and better blogger which doesn’t happen overnight. The more that the authority that you produce due to the quality of the content post after post for dozens to hundreds of posts. It will take a wide variety of your time to build up the vault of good content to which the constant blogging and adding content is and you can trust what you need in order to rise to the top of any niche you create. 

Google likes fresh content and many other search engines love fresh content for a variety of reasons. Aside from all the keywords that help with your new content having the consistent updates means that you’re site will be crawled on a regular basis and visitors who will become readers that will spend more time reading the city tent and staying on the page. 

By having low bounce rate and a longer average visit time per visit on your site. Google likes to see visitors who will take some time to stay on the page and they hate seeing people show up then immediately leave. By taking fresh content that will help by taking care of both of those issues in one sweep swoop. 

I wasn’t expecting to write a long Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging but with the research that I have found and changing it into my own words it helps me to understand and to know what to expect what to write and know for the next time I need to do to improve. Adding fresh high quality content on a consistent basis should be you’re number one importance especially for all bloggers and new bloggers. Blogging consistently will also help you find your voice, your tone and overall will improve your overall writing. Nothing beats repetition as a blogger.

Friday Online Diary Entries: Being a blogger one massive thing you shouldn’t do!

No matter what you do in your blogs weather you post them or you don’t post them either they are too personal or not. You have the actions that might come back to you; I have had that in the past when I first lashed out when being emotional, things got too much and posted up on social media. Worst mistake ever made. Still get reminded what I done wether it was aimed at me or not but you know you shouldn’t of done it in the first place.

Wether my blog stories are true or not but you know I write warnings and put by them (Story Based) next to them so you know it is actually a story not real life. Today of all days I’ve been a bit of a reck and not thinking straight at all I’ve stupidly wrote a story based on how I was feeling in a story. However it got too personal due to all the hate, anger, upset and every emotion that I was feeling into the story that made it feel like it was real.

I then started to get good reviews knowing that it was a story but stupidly after realising what I done after I sent it to a friend that I shouldn’t of posted it. I took it down hence why it isn’t up anymore; I’m sorry for anyone who has ready it already, if you have not to worries you haven’t missed much and I know it’s just a story but my actions are stupid if it got out of hand.

Think carefully what you do wether you’re too upset or needing to write it all down somewhere. Do it in a journal not as a blog because you never know who will gain access it by hacking into your system. Just be safe than sorry.

Just remember kindness is free sprinkle that stuff everywhere around you. Be kind to yourself. Love yourself. Remember your only human at the end of the day. Be positive within yourself than being negative towards yourself.

Give a like if you think I should create a google hangout for you guys and you guys can have a chat with me and we can be a positive arrows all the way. What do you think? Smash that comment button if you think it’s a good idea to do so.

Remember be positive, be motivated and be you. Stay safe everybody. Love you all.

Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging: How to be unique with you’re own pictures?

Love to get inspired by creating your own pictures wether it’s colouring in apps or taking photos on your phone or your camera? You have come to the right place. I wasn’t so sure what I was going to write until I started to play around with some colouring apps that I’ve download; yes some you have to pay for, yes it involves money but however the great things about these colour in apps you get to share it with other people who use the same app and you can also save the pictures onto your iPad. 

I literally love saving my pictures because I know they are so cool and it’s shows me triumph that I’ve done the colouring how I want it to be like. Also it goes to show that someone who has mental health can easily calm themselves down or distract themselves from the things that are worrying them. Believe me I’ve done so many that I’ve got to put my iPad down before it gets over heated. 

The fact that I can also use the pictures for my blog categories just to be unique and different. Plus I get to show them off as well at the same time haha. I tend to leave the apps name on the pictures because it’s down to them who made them and I coloured them; so part their work, part my work so the credit also goes to them at the end of the day as well. 

Two other options are using your phone or camera to take awesome pictures if you like photography and use them for your categories. Just as it adds more of your own personal touch to it like making it your own and making your website as you’re own too. 

I use an app called Canva app to create around the pictures that I want and make them see sense in away that it stands out and draw you guys in. I like to hope that it inspires you to get your creativity out within yourself because at the end of the day it’s you that you should be proud off for be creative and proud off yourself. Go on give it ago be creative with yourself and make things look cool.

Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging: Blogging Bucket List

This week was a bit of a struggle to be honest to think on what to write; I know most weeks I say this but this time it was because I didn’t know what to write, normally as you know I’ve done things throughout the week that might be a good idea for a Hustle and Bustle Advice of Blogging and pay off in along run. 

I was looking through ideas on Pinterest to see what I could do for ideas; most of them would say how to create a blog, how I made x amount of money in one day, a week, a month, a year? To be quite honest I haven’t seen any other blog post from the other people on Pinterest but the same old same old things. Which is quite annoying really because everyone says the same thing and do the same thing. Why can’t you come up with your own original things than copying everyone else’s because at the end of the day it’s your work your hobby at the end of the day not other peoples or your readers. Your readers want to see something new and something different. 

Sorry that was a bit of rant but quite glad that I got out there to be honest. I just hate it where people just rub it into peoples faces of oh look how much I made in x amount of days. Does that make sound jealous? I hope not because I don’t want to do it for money I want to do it for fun and if I get paid for it then that’s great but at the end of the day I enjoy writing than anything else. So let’s get my blog bucket list up and shared with you. 

Blog Bucket List: 

  • Making writing become more regularly 
  • Blog more things that are different but still write stories as well
  • If it takes lizzysweeklyblogs take off and starts paying for itself then that’s great. If it does it does but if it doesn’t it doesn’t. Doesn’t matter at the end of the day. 
  • Get lizzysweeklyblogs merch up and ready again. 

Should be more of than this on the blog bucket list but as the heat was so bad along with the iPad burning up and etc it’s a bit harder to think than normal. Hence why I’ve just managed to post this up at this late hour. (7.5.18) if you have any ideas to let me know down in the comments below.
