Bloggers I Love – Part 1 | Beauty In Beta

Howdy lovlies,

I hope you’re well?

There’s been a lot of rubbish negativity going round the blogosphere recently, and it’s making me sad! So I thought I’d put together a little post of bloggers that literally make me smile and I love, like a lot, and you should definitely go and read!

Of course there are so many bloggers I love, but I’ve just picked 10 for now out of my list, and I’m going to do another post soon. 🙂

 

Joanna Loves

Jo was one of the first bloggers that I met and she is flipping amazing.Seriously look at the pictures below, she’s absolutely gorgeous. She does amazing OOTD’s and make up looks. Also head on over to her blog if you like finding new products to try as she’s always got favourites and wishlists and other fab things like that. She’s definitely my woman crush.

Sarah Speaks

Sarah is another one of those people who I immediately clicked with as soon as I started speaking to her, we have so much in common. Her and her dog Billy are two of my favourite people in the world. I’m always over on her blog because I always love her posts and her photography. Her OOTD’s are always super cute, and she’s also fab at nails, so I love seeing her creativity. Head on over to her blog now, or else!

Surely Char

Char could probably end up making me buy anything if I’m honest! I trust her recommendations wholeheartedly, and I know if she says something is good, then it most definitely is! I’ve bought so many amazing products because of her. Couple that with the fact she’s flipping amazing, and hilarious, then you get an awesome blog. Head on over to her blog for the best beauty and skincare reviews!

Bethany Worrall

Beth, my name twin is just the best. I always love her OOTD’s and her tweets always are guaranteed to make me laugh. She also always recommends the best products and her wishlists always make me want to buy more things. Everyone needs a bit of Beth in their life, so definitely head on over to her blog now!

MothLoves

Monica is the queen of the OOTD. Seriously, you need to go and check them out. Before any event we go to, I always run my outfit by her to get her opinion, as she always knows what goes best with what. She knows everything there is to know about fashion, so if you dig that, then definitely head on over to Monica’s blog!

WhatSheDid

Bethany is the creator of one of my favourite sets of posts so far this year. I’m always waiting for her 100 looks in 100 day posts, as they’re always so creative and amazing. There’s a selection of them below, but you need to go and check them all out as there’s about 46 more already! Honestly, amazing.

EatReadGlam

Rosie is another blogger that I immediately clicked with, and her blog pretty much does what it says on the tin. Food, books and beauty. Three of my favourite things! I love her blog because I love her writing style and the way she presents things, so hers is definitely one you need to add to your reading list!

My Potl

Ok, I’m going to put this out there, I want Laurie as my best buddy. Honestly, she’s one of the most hilarious people I’ve ever met and her blog, is equally hilarious. The premise of her blog started as being set up on blind dates by different family members and friends, but it’s evolved to so much more than that. This is one my favourite relationship blogs out there, which you definitely need to check out.

Lilliesandlove

Penny is just lovely, plain and simple. I love her drive and dermination and her kindness. She’s had numerous articles published and is one of my favourite lifestyle bloggers. Check out her blog for fab recommendations, great writing and a bit of beauty, pets and fashion thrown in for good measure.

Scarphelia

Katie from Scarphelia is so flipping cool, I honestly feel like the most awkward weirdo when I’m standing next to her. Her blog is one of my absolute favourites. She really makes you think which I love, and I’m in awe of her awesome projects, which you need to go and read about. She’s also gorgeous, so beware of inevitable jealously!

So there we go, 10 of my favourite bloggers! Who are your favourite bloggers?

Lots of love and squishes,

Google Analytics For Bloggers | Beauty In Beta

Howdy lovlies,

I hope you are all well this lovely Tuesday? Well, on my last SEO post I did a little poll on what you’d like to have a post on next, and the majority said Google Analytics, so here we go! Sorry it’s taken so long to get this out. 🙂

Obviously I’m no expert, but I use Google Analytics daily for clients at work, so I thought I’d put together a little post on what exactly GA is, and how to get it on your site.
I’m going to talk a bit about how to apply this to your blog, and how to get yourself set up. Unfortunately this only applies to those who have a Blogger blog or a self hosted WordPress, as I’m not familiar with any others! You’re unable to use GA on a WordPress.com site (one hosted through WordPress), so you’ll have to stick to the stats tab of their blog, sorry!

Some Love For A Newbie Blog?| Beauty In Beta

Howdy lovlies,

I hope you are all well?

Well, it’s only awards season in the blogosphere and it’s so flipping exciting! I was having a look at the categories for the Cosmo Blog Awards, and was thinking to myself, there’s no way I can compete with all the amazing beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogs out there

But I thought, you never know things unless you try, so as my little space on the internet here is only still a baby (6 months old), I thought that I’d maybe give the ‘Best Newcomer’ category a go.

So, if you like my random ramblings, or are feeling especially generous, then please do pop on over to this link below, it takes just two seconds and I’d be so grateful!

CLICK MEEEEEE

That’s it really! I’m not going to keep harping on about this, but please do let me know if you give me a cheeky little vote, I’d love to say thanks!

SEO Tips For Blogging (Pt 2 – On Page SEO) | Beauty In Beta

Howdy lovlies,
Hope you’re well? Thanks so much for the lovely responses to my last post, part 1 of SEO Tips For Blogging. Was a bit nervous about it, as it’s so different than anything I’ve done on here before!
Now that I’ve started to put everything down, I’ve  realised there’s going to have to be more than two parts to this! In this post, I’m going to talk about On Page SEO, mainly SEO copywriting (which is my speciality, and what I trained in), then in the next post I’m going to talk about Off Page SEO (alt tags, optimising URLs, link building, social media etc).
seotips
When you’re writing your posts, you’re thinking about the reader, right? Well yes, that’s true, but you want it to get noticed too? And to get noticed, you need it to be searchable, and this is where SEO Copywriting comes in. When you start to adjust your posts to make them SEO friendly, this is calling optimising it.

 

Without doing this optimising of posts, even a site which has the best design and best pictures in the world, would struggle to get noticed. Content covers all areas in your blog, anywhere where there is writing is available to be optimised. Getting the right balance with this can drastically increase your page views, readership and engagement.
In this post I’m going to give you some tips of how to achieve this! Continue reading
