      Heyy! Funny you say that, I’ve just started writing one about reaching out to brands, not sure when it’ll be up but if you have any questions in the mean time please do email me or message me on my twitter or Instagram☺ they really are!! I definitely need to get into the swing of doing them again I’ve been so busy! X

        I agree with Julia’s comment, and I a post on reaching out to brands sounds like such a helpful idea. Hopefully some brand will want to work with me, if I continue on reaching out- at least one has got to like what I’m promoting, right? I haven’t gone self hosed, and I kind of don’t plan to, just as I find blogging a nice “escape” for me and my personal thoughts, so I don’t think it would benefit me much. Having a good cohesive blog theme really has helped me! x

    I love this post! Super useful, i really need to go self hosted! Just have not got round to doing it at all, & now i need to wait for pay day! Definitely agree with networking, 100% the best way to gain traffic and followers xxx

    I definitely agree with all of these and think reaching out to brands is a great idea. Some people think it’s cheeky but I think if you’re polite and honest then there’s no harm in asking. X

    These are really helpful, one thing that I need to work on is purchasing a domain and attending blogging events. I’m more of a homebody so this will definitely help push me out of my comfort zone.

    Great tips em! I love attending blogger events! I honestly wish I could attend more but they’re always in London! Living in the midlands can be difficult to get to there!

    This was very interesting to read as I’m still 1 month into blogging and haven’t made my mind about going self-hosted. When do you think it’s the best time to do it?

    • emibeccamarven says

      I guess there isn’t really a best time, some do it instantly, some wait. I did it about 4 months in when I knew this was going to be a constant thing for me and I wanted to take it quite seriously (and when I had the money aha!) so really play it by your own ear, there’s no right or wrong time! x

    I’m glad that I have already done some of them! I’m not really sure how to go about reaching out to brands though. I don’t know if it’s because I am new but I feel a bit awkward about it haha
