Hello everyone! I’ve finally started to blog again and it feels goooood! There’s a change in the scenery, because I’ve updated the layout. I love minimalistic looks and I think this one fits the blog perfectly. In the meantime I’m designing a logo that looks just right – a bit of a struggle because I’m never quite satisfied with how it looks. I’ll keep you updated! Now in today’s post I’ve thought of 5 ways to make your blog stand out. You ready? 🙂
When I moved to WordPress back in the beginning of December 2015, my traffic went way down to 600 unique visitors a month. I was close to a breakdown because I had the feeling that so many people decided to quit reading my blog because I was no longer on Blogger / Blogspot. I immediately regret that I made the move, whilst at the same time I loved all the things WordPress had to offer. During this low point I decided to maintain my blog strategy and keep on blogging like nothing happened.
Now, at the end of January 2016, my unique visitors are up to 3000+. I rarely keep track of my stats, but I was curious if there was any change after moving to WordPress two months ago. Can you imagine my (positive) shock when I opened up Google Analytics? This post is a little case study about how I quintupled my blog traffic (and how you can too)!
Hello everyone! It’s hard to believe that June is almost over already. In only two days I’ll have my results, exciiiiting! June wasn’t really a special month to me, mostly because my boyfriend and sister still had there exams going on, and my best friend had her internship. I was faced with some kind of black hole – one that spontaneously (and always) pops up once I have finished all the work.
When I moved from Blogger to WordPress a few months ago, I mainly made the switch because of the millions of opportunities a self-hosted WordPress website had to offer. Now that we’re a few months further, I would like to share my most-used WordPress plugins!
If you’d have told me a year ago that I would love sweet potato waffles today, I would have laughed really hard. In my opinion, potatoes are for baking, mashing or frying. Same goes for the sweeter version of regular potatoes. However, creating healthy alternatives for sweets and desserts brings me a lot of joy, that’s why I did some internet research on ‘healthy waffles’. After reading a few recipes I decided to create my own. I’ve used oatmeal as flour and a sweet potato instead of refined sugar.
Mixing the ingredients and creating a batter wasn’t the problem, but baking definitely was… The first waffle looked like a scrambled egg. For some reason I had decided that baking them for 2 minutes was long enough and besides, I was ready to taste my new creation 🙂 Making these waffles was a real case of trial-and-error. Anyway… Fortunately I love the outcome!
