  • My Birthday Wish List | 2022

    Every year on my blog I do a blog post called "My Birthday Wish List" now not only does this give my family and friends a chance to find out what I'd like for my birthday but it is also something you all like reading... Apple Now in case, you didn't notice I love everything Apple and it's getting to the point where I've turned into one of the people who have almost everything Apple. One thing I'd love based on Apple is an Apple Gift Card. I know this may seem like an odd gift but for someone like myself who has got almost everything related to Apple, a Gift Card is probably the next best thing. Smart Tech I love everything smart tech and being able to make your home smart and being able to run things from your home or via smart home assist. Anything that I can add to it would be great. Plus the more you add to the Apple HomeKit then the smarter your hub gets. Costa When it's this time of year shops in the U.K. like to bring the Chrismas stuff out 2-3 months before Chrismas which for me is great because some shops have Costs gifts out for sale and anyone who knows me well or follows me on social media will know how much I love Costa and coffee. Blogging One thing I love the most is blogging so being able to get anything blogging-related from planning to books is perfect and will help so much get back on track with blogging.

  • 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.
