Just want to apologise because I didn’t post much in May, I was stuck with what to write, also I had a huge pile of college work. Let’s make June an amazing month.
Anyway, let’s get into my May Favourites.
If you haven’t seen it, go straight onto you Netflix, like NOW….
Go on, I’m waiting…. Have you logged in yet?
Right, so you should have said yes. Now stop reading this and watch Girlboss then carry on reading this post. Or read the rest of this post then watch Girlboss…. 🙂
I think that Brit Robertson is the perfect actress for this role. I absolutely love her work and the roles she plays, especially this one. I love the story behind it and the whole flipping show.
Go n watch it!!
Basically, it creates anything you want, posters, Instagram posts, Facebook posts, business cards, anything!
I use it for my Instagram posts and my Pinterest posts, by adding an image in the background then some text on top, but they are thousands of templates to choose from. My favourite is the Photo Collage.
The best thing is, its free!!!!! And super easy to use.
Here are some examples of my posts using Canva
This album is so peaceful and relaxing, and it is great to have in the background while doing work. I have tried other Youtube playlists but they’re not as good as this. Give it a try. Click here to hear the playlist.
Whenever I write a blog post, I schedule it for days or weeks in advance. I then go to Buffer and schedule my tweets, Instagrams, and status’ for those days too. So for the days where I’m busy, can’t use my phone or I forget that my blog post went live, Buffer does it all for me. Plus you can add the hashtags with it too, along with videos or images.
Unfortunately, it can’t post directly to your Instagram because there is a bigger process when uploading to Instagram, ya know selecting filters and stuff. But what it does is sets you a reminder, you then go to Buffer and it will copy your status and direct you to Instagram, you then paste the status and post as usual. So there still isn’t a lot of work involved.
You can select any day or time you want in the day, and this is handy if you have some viewers from different countries. So Buffer can tweet at 3 am (UK) while you’re asleep, but your viewers in the US can see it. If that makes sense.
It is amazing! Complete life saver…
If you’re a blogger like me and you’ve just started. You are probably struggling to get decent traffic every day. Sign up for an Instagram account, only for your blog though. Make full use of the hashtags, upload decent pictures. They don’t have to always be your images, but it would be nice if you could create your own.
Instagram gets me a lot of views a day on my blog, just make sure you use the appropriate hashtags, click here to get some ideas. Also comment back, follow back and add your blog link in the bio.
