HOW MOVING TO A CO-WORKING SPACE INCREASED MY PRODUCTIVITY

Word up! Things have gone from 0-60 around here lately. What with No Bull Blog School, the blog, styling work and various other things a gwan I needed to find somewhere outside of my flat to really crack on and get productive. I've always loved the idea of shared workspaces but couldn't really understand why people who work for themselves would pay to go and work somewhere else when you could just roll out of bed and pick up your laptop.

So I decided to try it. AND THEN IT HAPPENED.

A BLOG IS FOR LIFE, NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS

I just realised my 2 year blogging anniversary just passed without me even realising! Like many other bloggers, I started blogging in January. It's a great time to start as your head is full of ideas after the break from working life. But blogging isn't just a fad or a toy that can be picked up and down when you fancy it - it takes a bit of effort and strategy to really make waves in the blogging world. I know because I blogged very averagely for about 6 months before I really upped the ante and started to see success after putting into place a strategy I had observed from loads of successful bloggers already making a living doing it. Anyway, the reason I'm saying all this is because now I'm sharing what I've learnt, and here's how you can get involved.

THE NUMBER ONE REASON MOST BLOGS FAIL

I see blogs that arrive and then disappear or lay abandoned ALL the time. It's really a shame because honestly, blogging isn't and shouldn't be hard, but it can seem that way when you don't know the very specific reasons that can lead to blogging failure. Fundamentally I believe there is one very distinct reason that blogs don't succeed, and once you know what it is, it's actually pretty easy to rectify. So what is it?
