Six Things To Remember When You First Start Blogging

The other day, a blog post flashed up on my Twitter timeline. It was by Rebecca from Rebecca Reviews and it was titled: 1 Month Blog-versary (And My Tips For Other Newbies). It was a really useful post and whilst reading I thought, wasn’t Rebecca was one of the first people I followed when I started out on Twitter. Then I thought, yes hang on, it must be coming up to my one month blog-versary too! Sure enough, I checked and I had shared my very first post (Study Tips from an Open University Student) on 18th October 2017 which means I’ve also been doing this thing for a whole month too.

Feeling inspired by Rebecca’s thoughtful tips, I wanted to share my own ideas and suggestions for other newbie bloggers and recap on my first month of hellobexa.

Snapshots From The Seaside: A Day In Bournemouth

The beach isn’t just for the summertime, ya know. If you are looking for a nice little day out in the colder months that won’t break the bank, then hop on the train (or drive, or however you get around) to Bournemouth. We are lucky enough to live just a short journey away from the beach, so on a sunny day at the end of October, I grabbed my camera and Shaun, and off we went to the seaside.

Zante Travel Diaries

Tuesday 19th September 2017

Shaun and I woke up bright and early ready for our Zante adventure. I did a Yoga with Adrienne called Ocean Flow which was perfect for the holiday mood. We got ready, did our final checks and left to get our train. There was a bit of concern as as couldn’t find our flight on the Gatwick live departures website but we decided to sort that out once we reached the airport. Whether we were travelling with Easy Jet or Norwegian Air – we were going to Zante.
