Food // Bloggers Brunch, LIV Food Market

If you’re a Bold Street regular or someone who likes to eat healthier and discover new brands to add to the weekly shop, I’m sure you’re well acquainted with the LIV Food Market, located just opposite Liverpool Central. Since it opened its doors just under a year ago, the one-stop health food shop has quite rightly built up quite a reputation in the city. Doubling up a venue to stop for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a leisurely drink between shops and a health superstore, it’s well worth a visit. I attended their Bloggers Brunch recently and wanted to chat you through my three favourite things about the brand…. ONE The food, obvs. The cafe section of the store has a very homely decor and it’s very easy to get comfy on one of the many sofas and indulge in a dish or two from the menu. We were treated to small bites from the breakfast menu. Every blogger fave made an appearance – avo on homemade, on the premises sourdough, peanut butter and banana on toast, …

Life // Forget Instagram, Don’t Neglect Your Blog

Lately, I’ve noticed lots of conversations focusing on the blogging industry and how it will continue to grow and expand in the coming month and looking at the long game; the coming years. For me, I’m very much immersed into this world; through my day job as a PR & Outreach Executive and as a blogger who’s been typing out words onto the internet for eight years now. So, what’s the future of blogging? Well, 10 years ago this wasn’t a career. Now, it is. Not only is it a full-time job for the creators and influencers who share engaging, funny, relevant content across a variety of platforms, but those of us on the other side. The in-house and agency-led outreach teams, who work with brands to pitch, create, navigate campaigns. Sourcing bloggers, negotiating gifting and payment and meeting deadlines are hard work. I, in particular, work within an SEO-led agency. So my outreach campaigns rely on backlinks, supporting the SEO value of any one of clients across our portfolio. So sadly, Instagram followers and …

Life // Do You Need a Blogging ‘Niche’?

Sit down and blog posts are sometimes few and far between but they’re honestly, my fave posts to write. I love bloggers who share their lives and use their online space as a diary and forum to vent or share updates on their daily lives. I think I struggle with my content. This blog has had so many slight changes – lifestyle blog, food blog, dedicated Liverpool food blog & now, well it’s a bit of everything. I don’t attend as many restaurant reviews as I was doing a year, two years ago and so my content has switched. But after blogging for a whopping 7 years, my domain authority has steadily grown and I get to work with amazing brands – which is truly fab, but I wonder how I got here! My fave collaborations to take part in a recipe related. I do still love to blog about food and since I’m very much a homebird these days, I do love creating recipe content. So to be recognised by brands for this is …

Being a blogger is all fun and games until you realise this industry is now a serious business and you find yourself hustling with brands to make money and keep everything above board! My day job is in blogger outreach so I understand both sides of the spectrum, so I’ve compiled a fun helpful tips kinda post, focusing on the 5 things to remember when you want to take your blog to the next level! Spelling is everything It’s so easy to forget about spelling and grammar when you’re not really posting for a reason, other than to share your opinions on a new lipstick or a recipe you love. But when you’re collaborating with a brand or part of a bigger campaign, it’s good to remember to check your spelling and grammar. Whilst some of your readers might not care so much, brands and PR’s do, so don’t forget to double check brand names and ensure your post looks and sounds its best!
