Bloggers: Do you get ‘comment guilt’?

Bloggers: Do you get ‘comment guilt’?

As a blogger, I absolutely adore getting comments! There’s no better feeling than knowing that someone has connected with something you’ve written enough to take the time to respond and start a conversation with you, and I really do appreciate every single comment that I get. That’s why sometimes I feel bad because it seems to take me so long… Read more »

It’s my second Blogiversary!

It’s my second Blogiversary!

I can’t believe it! Another year has gone by, and Boats Against The Current turns two today! When I started out blogging I was kind of doubtful as to whether or not I’d actually manage to stick with it (I’m a bit of a serial hobbyist!), so I’m pretty pleased that two years later I’m still going. I started this… Read more »

5 Little Things I’ve Done To Boost My Blog

5 Little Things I’ve Done To Boost My Blog

With my second blogoversary drawing ever closer, I recently decided to really try and step up my blogging (probably because it’s about that time of year when my hosting fees are due – it makes me want to get my money’s worth!).

After all, how is a person supposed to find their place in the blogging world when there are so many other blogs, and nothing is original anymore? The many blog advice posts… Read more »

5 Things I’ve Missed About Blogging

5 Things I’ve Missed About Blogging

Recently, I’ve been pretty disconnected from the blogosphere: my new home hasn’t got any Wi-Fi set up yet, and thanks to my rapidly dwindling phone data I haven’t even been able to browse Twitter or Bloglovin much. In some ways having this enforced break has been quite nice, as it has definitely relieved the pressure over a period that is… Read more »

A Short Absence

A Short Absence

So, you may have noticed things have become a little sporadic around here in regards to posting (and answering comments in a timely manner!). The reason for that is that I have been pretty busy moving house this past week, and now I’m in my new flat it’s looking like we’re not going to have any Wi-Fi set up for… Read more »

Do you tell people about your blog?

Do you tell people about your blog?

Back when I first started my blog, I didn’t tell anyone about it. I set it up, started posting and never breathed a word of it to anyone else, and I really don’t know why. Oddly it just felt too weird thinking of people I knew reading it, even though they are likely to be the only people you can… Read more »

The Best of 2015

The end of 2015 is quickly creeping up on us, so I thought I’d take the time to reflect over the past 12 months of blogging and do a quick round up of some of my favourite books I’ve read this year, and some of my favourite posts I’ve written (plus a few blogs I’ve loved reading this year!). I’ll… Read more »
