  • The "WHY" Behind The Blog

    As some of you may already know I have been blogging for 7 -years now and I love it I find blogging so much fun and I have many more years to come. The one question I get asked the most as a blogger is “What is it that got you into blogging” or “Why did you decide to start blogging” well I’ve only told you all the little bits I have never told you the full response to why I wanted to start blogging. Once I was reading a few blogs and thought about making my own blog after a few weeks or so of me wanting to make a blog, I went over to my best friend's house Amy Lee to see what she thought about the idea. After a few hours of us talking about it and so on I then decided that once I got home I would make Jack Deyes Lifestyle / jackdeyes.com and I’m so glad I did. I got home and went on to Google and looked up all kinds of different blog subjects and after hours and hours of searching Google and so on I came across lifestyle. Once I picked my topic and so on I then planned my blog and the name and I then planned some blog posts that sadly are no longer available due to problems I had with moving from WordPress. The one reason why I decided to start blogging was that I was reading loads of blogs anyway and it also looked like loads of fun. I also made my blog because I wanted something to do instead of just sitting in my room all day playing games on my X-Box and well not really doing anything. I wanted to do something that I knew I would enjoy and I knew that I would enjoy it for a long time well I’m so glad I decided to blog. The more I blog the more I love it and I’m not saying that blogging is always easy and to run a blog and all the rest of it but at the end of the day if blogging was as easy as people think then to me it won’t be fun….right? I come across new bloggers every day and every single blog looks amazing in its own way I love how every blog is different. I’ve said this so many times before but if you want to start blogging then go for it because it's so much fun and you get to know so many other amazing bloggers. -

  • My Advice To New Bloggers

    Welcome to another blog post; this week's blog post is based on "My Advice to New Bloggers", so to all the new bloggers out there, welcome to the blogging community, and I hope you find this blog post helpful. Before we get into this blog post, I just wanted to share my blogging journey with you, so you get to know my blogging background and a little bit more about the blog. I got into blogging after reading a few blog posts on topics like lifestyle, tec, baking, and so many more. After reading all the different blogs, I decided to make my blog and have the subject just about lifestyle. After that, I found a blogging group called Southampton Bloggers, which was amazing because I got to meet some other fabulous bloggers. I also got to attend some fantastic events and did some PR work. I've also had the chance to work with one of my favourite bloggers, and she is Anna Newton, "The Anna Edit" I come across Anna after finding her Apple PodCast called "At Home With". Being able to work and team up with her was terrific. After having my blog for six years, I moved it from WordPress to Wix. When I started blogging, I used WordPress for a good few years and the reason why is because that was the most popular one at the time. WordPress wasn't bad, but you were very limited to what you could do, and if you had to contact WordPress support for something, they would always ask for a reason and put their prices up. My brother then mentioned Wix to what I looked into; they seemed to be way better than WordPress. The customer service is way better, you're free to do whatever you want to the blog, and they are cheaper than WordPress. . That is a rough background of my blog, and hopefully, you found some of that interesting. My Advice To New Bloggers Hosting Site A hosting site is a website that runs your blog, and every hosting site has different plans, price features and so forth. Before you go with anyone, look at prices, what they can offer you and most importantly, their feedback. Domaine & Blog Name The domain and blog name are the most important things for your blog because it's the thing that your blog readers will remember when they are looking for your blog, and the domain will be the thing you will put in your social media bio/website link on your social media pages. When you think of a name for the domain, you need to think of something that your readers will remember and something easy to spell-like your name, for example. (Please note the Domain you want me not avlible to have due to another blog/website already owning that Domain) Blogging Topics When it comes to blogging topics, there are so many to choose from, and the best bit about it is that you can have more than one, and there are millions to pick from, such as Lifestyle Review Days out Travel Technology Finance Probity Stock Photes & Your Photes Are you maybe thinking about what are stock photos? They are photos like the one below, and stock photos are photos that you or anyone else has permission to use, and you could see this photo and many others on millions of websites and blogs. I don't have a problem with bloggers using stock photos the only time I get annoyed about it is when bloggers use them for every blog post they do. I highly recommend you use the images that you have taken and only use stock photos now and then, or even better, try and not use them at all if you can Social Media The best way to gain blog followers/readers is by having social media, which doesn't mean you have to be on every social media platform. The two that I'd recommend you get are Twitter and Instagram because, in my eyes, they are the two best platforms for bloggers. Overnight You're not going to get millions of followers/readers and views overnight, and it's going to take time, effort and cooperation to get a high number on your blog; for some bloggers, this has taken them years and years to get where they are today. My main advice on this would be to focus on your blog, not the numbers. The Device You Blog On When I started blogging, I was blogging off an old Amazon Fire tablet; it wasn't the best, and the app I used to run my blog was minimal and wasn't that easy to run. I then got an iPad which made it a little easier, but still, the app was limited. I then got a MacBook, and doing things on my blog and making blog posts became more manageable, and I'd highly recommend any bogger to use a laptop.

  • Apple HomePod Mini & HomeKit Review

    HomePod Mini A few months ago I went into the Apple Store in Southampton and had a look at their HomePod Minis. Now I was a little unsure about the HomePod Mini as I'm used to having an Alexa. The Alexas are great but there are a few things I didn't like about them. The first one was if you have Apple Music as I do then Alexa isn't all that good at finding the song and let alone playing the right one. You had to make sure the apps or whatever they were called was kept updated and if they had any bugs then they wouldn't work or run the routine and so on. The reason why I moved over to the HomePod Mini is that well most of the stuff in my life is part of the Apple Ecosystem. To me, the Apple Ecosystem is amazing because for example if I'm playing something from Apple TV on my iPhone 12 and then stop playing it and go and watch it on my iPad Mini or Apple TV boxes then then it will just carry on from where I left off on my iPhone. I love the HomePod Mini because unlike Alexa I can make phone calls, receive and send text messages to my contacts. Also when I"m working late at night my iPhone will tell my HomePod when I'm near my house and will turn my lights on. This is also the same if I go out and leave anything playing on the HomePod Mini or leave the lights on or the plugs it will automatically turn them off. If I"m playing some music on my phone while walking home I can go up into my room put my phone near the HomePod and it will move the auto from the phone to the HomePod and back again. I can also ask Sir to set me a reminder and instead of it just saying 2 times like Alexa Sir will say it and send a notification to your Apple devices. Unlike Alexa, the HomePod Mini has amazing room-filling sound and music just sounds amazing. HomePod Mini also has a private and secure feature added to it so Siri will recognise your voice and will keep your info private and secure so when you ask Siri to send a text message to one of your contacts or call someone it will only do that when it hears your voice and know if someone comes in and asks Siri to text someone in your contact Siri won't do it. To anyone who has AirTags, you can now ask Sir on HomePod Mini to find your keys or anything you may have an AirTag attached to. Like other things that Apple has released like AirPods, iPhone, iPad, AirTags and much more setting up the HomePod Mini is so easy it takes seconds to do. You can also get the HomePod Mini in 5 different colours HomeKit Just like the HomePod Mini, anything that works with HomeKit is also made simple all you have to do is get your (iPhone, open up the HomeKit app, tap on the + , and then tap on Add Accessory) and then get your smart home light, plug or other smart home accessories and scan the QR code and within seconds it's connected. Unlike Alexa or Google, it's all in one place no need for 3rd party apps. To anyone who's a part of the Apple Ecosystem like me, I'd highly recommend you get the HomePod Mini.

    From The Owner I started making hand-embroidered bags during the first lockdown and listing them on Depop, it was a new hobby that I was thoroughly enjoying. ​ This then developed to me creating a website and investing in an embroidery machine, which is now like my right arm. ​ Fast forward to 2021 and I now make embroidered tote bags, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and art prints. ​ I would love for you to join me on this exciting journey!
