How to Get 50 New REAL Pinterest Followers Every Day

Before I begin I'd just like to let you all know that this is NOT a sponsored post or an ad. It's just a simple method that I have found to boost your Pinterest following really easily!

For a couple of weeks now I have developed a new approach to Pinterest all in an effort to social media network more effectively in less time and using less effort. If you're a blogger, trying hard to get a good following on all the different social media platforms you'll completely sympathise with just how much time and effort goes in to cultivating all the social media platforms and how FAR too much of our time is spent juggling all the SM channels rather than actually blogging!

How to get 50 real new Pinterest followers a day

Okay, so I actually have a bunch of awesome ways to develop a great and highly active Pinterest following which I plan on sharing with you in the future so make sure to follow along with this blog whichever way best suits you. But this post is all about 1 simple yet highly effective way to boost engagement and grow your following by hundreds in just a couple of weeks. Since I've started this method I have been gaining over 50 new followers per day and that number is growing daily as well.

6 Ways Tech is Changing Our Health for the Better

As a blogger technology is my friend, I've always been loyal to a fault with friends and a glass half full kind of person so when the entire rest of the world continues to use technology to within an inch of its life yet spout on about how it's responsible for all the evils of this world, including all our ever increasing health issues, I'm here to say SHUT UP! I'm standing up for our good pal Tech and asking the media to please stop the tech bashing.

So, to help everyone remember just how awesome tech is and how tech can help us, I have 6 ways tech is changing out health for the better. Why 6? Because 6 is my favourite number and I'm getting sick of Top 5 and Top 10 posts. Bring on the number 6!

Who is this person?

 I was tagged a little while ago by my awesome online buddy Nadya on instagram to share 20 unknown things about me. I figured I'd be a good blogger for once and make a post about it. It's going to be really hard to come up with things but hopefully it won't be too boring and it will bring all of us bloggy pals that little bit closer!

1. Sonia's latest post at Life, Love and Hiccups got me thinking about my favourite reads. My all time favourite book is the Thorn Birds, the real issue with that is I don't really know why it is. All my other favourite books make sense and match certain likes and areas of my personality. I normally hate books that are set in the same place and time as me. The time is slightly off, I wasn't exactly born in the 30's or anything but the norm for me is 17 or 1800's so it's way off but I am from New South Wales originally. The characters personality traits aren't a bit like mine, I should actually hate them. But I don't.

Playing in the Garden with Spot

It's been far too long since I shared my last photos of Spotty on here with you all. If you missed my last post then you may not be aware that I recently homed and fell in love with this little Kelpie x Smithfield puppy. You also might not be aware that even though his name is Spot, he recently lost the spot that he was named after. It's currently just two tiny little white hairs on the back of his neck! 

Warning to anyone with a slow internet speed, this is a super cute photo heavy post.

free copyright free images for bloggers

As a professional content writer part of my job is scouring the web for the best FREE copyright free images to use in my articles. While I probably use them more than the average blogger and I know we all strive to create our own images and take amazing photos ourselves, sometimes you need a little help whether it's a beautiful photographic image, a background, vector image or blog buttons and social media icons.

In no particular order, here is my top 10 list of Copyright free FREE image sources for bloggers.

It's All About the Wrapping at Inky Co.

 I am a wrapping fanatic as I'm certain a lot of you are too! I'm always buying little bits of ribbon, string and twine and recycling things to create beautiful wrapping. Well this time, after many many moons of feeling awful about buying cheap wrapping paper which is of course completely un-environmentally-friendly, I decided that it was about time to buy some that wouldn't make me feel so guilty and here's what I found:

Vintage Stacked Tea Cups and Saucers

It's been so long since I shared some vintage finds with you all...  these gorgeous stacked vintage teacups and saucers come courtesy of my thrifty brother and sister in law. They're always trawling the antique shops for my presents... Gotta love that! The glass rose is also from my brother, he got each of his girls a different colour. One for me, one for each of my sisters, our Mummy, his wife and his super cute little baby girl. How sweet is that!?

Indoor Garden

Indoor kitchen garden, lavender, chilli, succulent, curry, tin, thyme, rosemary
As some of you are aware, Andi and I have been experimenting with indoor gardening (as well as outdoor gardening). Check out this post about our hanging indoor kitchen planters. So far we’ve been having a lot of luck especially with succulents. Andi planted some in a Keen’s Curry tin. We also have a chilli plant, some lavender, rosemary, thyme and mint in the kitchen.
