Only five days to Christmas and the count down begins. The Christmas tree is up and twinkling with lights and decorations. The presents are all wrapped and sitting snugly under the tree, waiting to be shared and opened. The festive spirit is already spreading with Carols on the radio and Christmas movies showing on the TV channels and finally we have snow. Christmas does not feel complete unless it snows and I am pleased to say that not only is it snowing in my blog , did you even notice??? (I simply love the snowy template) but we are also four inches deep in white fluffy snow in the UK too. The temperatures are freezing and roads are iced up so what better way to spend the day than to snuggle up with a hot cup of tea in front of the television, but unfortunately the television has been hijacked by the sports channel!! Need I say more ?? I am sure you can guess by who and why!!!
So having a few hours to spare I have time to update my Blogs; angels~ thoughts and simply.food and surf the net. I am pleased to say that my cookery blog launched in October 2008 is well and truly established now. I am having tremendous fun updating it on a regular basis, but more so I am enjoying playing with my camera to try and capture professional looking pictures to accompany the recipes. I am considering taking photographic classes in the New Year at night school to help me improve. I hope santa brings me a new updated camera!!!
Blogging is most certainly interesting but promoting the blog is the key to the success of any blog. Not having any prior knowledge in computing or blogging, I have learnt the hard way ie self taught about using keywords, tags, meta tags, link sharing and of course html coding too. This is all thanks to google uncle!!!
Many times during these sessions, I have had many a disasters where I have accidentally deleted a code and messed up things, but it certainly has been a learning curve that I am enjoying. Also bloggerati has provided a wonderful platform for making new blogger friends who have always stepped in to help me when I am stuck with my coding. I am truely thankful to them. Thanks guys -you know who you are!!!
Today I created a business page on facebook, another platform to promote my blog, please do come and support me by becoming a fan. To become a fan click here
On another note angels~thoughts is soon going to celebrate it’s 2nd birthday. I never realised that I would get this far with blogging, something that started as a bit of casual time pass has certainly become an obsession, in a good way of course!! 🙂
