I am often asked, how and why I decided to start a blog, what advice I would give to new bloggers and how on earth I managed to amass over 7000 subscribers in less than 4 years! So you’re thinking about starting a blog, fashion, beauty, tech or whatever that may be but you have absolutely no idea where to start, right? Guess what—neither did I. I was totally and utterly clueless. When I conceptualized and started this blog a few years ago, I had no idea how to start a blog or how to be a blogger. Heck, I could hardly spell HTML, let alone build a blog. Nah, this is not a “put you down” or “glory, glory me” post, its…good news: it’s easier than you think. I have learned a ton of lessons (and still am daily) during my 4 years of blogging and running my…

At its core, resistance to change is a label we apply to people who seem unwilling to accept a change. But for the most part, it isn’t the change itself that people resist. People resist change because they believe they will lose something of value, or fear they will not be able to adapt to the new ways. The first step is for individuals, companies or even societies to be able to acknowledge the benefits of change and why or how they desire it to happen. This is one of the main reasons why Disruptor companies often struggle to “break” the market or make an immediate impact through their marketing channels despite hefty budgets being spent. It is incredibly fun to be the disruptor, but it isn’t easy. There will be plenty of cynics and trolls. So, what should marketers do when they are marketing a disruptive product or service? I have worked with several technology companies…

Pinterest is an amazing tool to use in order to get your blog posts, products, brand or simply your own face out there. It’s a really unique social media platform, as unlike Twitter or Facebook, 80% of the content is recycled. A ‘Chicken Thai Curry’ recipe can be re-pinned 10,000 times and then another 100,000 times – this is what makes it such a good platform for business owners! Nothing is ever ‘old’ on the site. Be Organised To start with, your account needs to be very organised. Your profile needs to stand out to people when they click on it. Try to organise your boards into niches – so no ‘House’ boards with a post from every single room – no way! Create ‘Kitchen’, ‘Bedroom’, ‘Bathroom’ .. You get the idea. People love to binge-pin from those very specific boards and it can also make for your profile to look very professional and polished.  Note: These are examples.…

Instagram’s new ‘Ask Me A Question’ feature is exciting and new. By now, you have likely seen lots of your friends sharing 50 stories, filled with silly questions and inside jokes from friends.

The saying goes, ‘If you can’t say anything nice, then you shouldn’t say anything at all.’ Since social media came into our lives, it has created the easiest way to say something nasty directly to a person. Social media is filled with persons who hide behind their screens to troll strangers, celebrities, companies and organizations. Most of the social media giants operate as hosts rather than publishers as such they are exempt from being liable for user-generated content if they act to remove content when notified. Facebook, Twitter and other social media giants are obligated to remove illegal content when they are informed of its presence on their platforms. Once a user reports a piece of content, it is reviewed by a human and removed once it is found to violate the terms and conditions of the platform. Beyond the human review, several of these social media platforms have an…

Instagram’s feed will now show users recommended posts – a change that earlier this month was spotted while in testing, and has since quietly gone live.

In the past, you had to go to Explore section to check recommended content. Moreover, you could choose to see which posts your friends had been liking in the Following section and so forth. This new feature however is slightly different and now also available for both Android and iOS as well. However, it…
