Life Update: Back from Hiatus

 This isn’t Tumblr…

Hello Fitspo’s. I apologise for being away for so long, but there’s just been a lot going on. Some of it I will talk about and some I shall be leaving out as it’s a bit too personal for me to share, but the important thing is that I am back and ready to get back in the blogging game!

Switching domains

newlogo

I have been toying with the idea of moving over to WordPress for a while now as it’s clearly the best place for engagement with my readers and blogs which I love to read, but until recently I haven’t really understood how it works! I’ve just been on Tumblr for so long that I never thought to explore other options and learn what works best, but luckily I’m slowly getting there. I will still be using Tumblr, but only to share direct links.

Side Project: LaceySocial

As I’ve been working freelance in social media, I decided that it may be a good idea to start a new blog for bloggers to utilise social media platforms to the best of their ability. I’m only one post in, but it seems to be a success! I’ll be writing a new one up this week, but if you haven’t checked out the first one yet, I urge you to do so after reading this.

Freelance work and networking

As mentioned, I’ve been doing part time freelance work to keep my CV up to date, but as I’m doing it alongside a basic part time job, it’s taken over most of my time. I have also been heading to many events with other bloggers and have joined a little blog squad! You may have seen this on my Instagram and it’s been really fun, but it’s left very little time for me to sit with my laptop and get writing.

Northern Blog Awards

Yaaassss! I went to the Northern Blog Awards with my Blogger friends and it was a wonderful evening. I honestly felt like a princess for one night and it was probably the best opportunity I have had to get to know other bloggers and see some brilliant writers get recognition for their work. I may write a longer post about it, but I’ll leave some photos here just in case I end up not doing so.

 

MacMillan Coffee Afternoon

Finally, I am working on my first event! It’s to raise money for MacMillan,  but it’s also an opportunity for bloggers to sit down with a bit of cake and talk all things blog. I’m really excited for it and will be posting more information soon, but if you think you may be interested then leave a comment with your email address and you’ll be the first to know of all updates!

So… I think I’ve talked enough for now. I’ll be back soon on the new and improved LaceyFitspo!

  1. What’s McMillian? What kind of organization is it and what does it do? Also, Northern Blog Awards seem awesome! Hopefully, someday there will be some kind of writing conference/award thing near where I live too. Glad for you that you got to go.

    1. It was great! MacMillan is a cancer charity where people train to be volunteer nurses, and each year they hold a coffee morning to raise money, so we’re doing a coffee afternoon so that bloggers can come after work ☺ the North Blog Awards was actually the first awards for bloggers in my area this year! But we hope it will become an annual thing xx

    1. Thanks! Tumblr is I guess a combo of WordPress and twitter. You can create your own posts, but also “reblog” from others. I’ve been using it so long that I could hack my way around it for writing, but not so much for engagement!
