Meet the blogger – Jack Deyes

In case you missed it, back in December I posted my first meet the blogger segment with SarahTradeMark.
In this ‘Meet the blogger’ I am talking about the wonderful Jack Deyes. Jack is a lifestyle blogger who is very passionate about the blogging community.

My favourite post from Jack…

Jack has written an open post on his own experiences with autism. ‘I have autism’. Jack really goes into detail about his autism, and how it affects him on a day to day basis. I feel that anyone who reads this post will gain more of an understanding of autism.

If you would like to follow Jack on Social Media he is on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Here are the questions I asked blogger Jack

What Made You Start blogging?

I started my blog because I wanted something that I would see my self doing for a long time. Down to me reading loads of blogs like I do today blogging seemed like the perfect thing to do

What advice would you give to the new bloggers out there?

Keep up the outstanding work on your blog and blog posts. The work you are putting in is absolutely incredible. Make sure you make your blog you’re own and don’t let anyone tell you how you should be running your blog. After all, you made your blog for you and should continue to be that way. Also sometimes you may feel like giving up but don’t give up because your blog is amazing and so are and I believe you. When you feel lost in the blogging community or something towards your blog talk to a blogger because at the end of the day you’re apart of this blogging community and we all help and support one another and that includes you.

Where do you see your blog in 5 years time?

I hope to see it continue to grow and have even more fun posts on there for people to read. 

I really appreciate Jack taking part in my Meeting the bloggers’ segment.

7 must have apps for bloggers

Generally,  we spend so much time using our mobile phones. Phones are not just phones anymore, they are more like mini personal assistants. As a blogger, if we are not tied to the computer the chances are we’re steaming from the iPad or phone, or maybe that is just me?  Whether it is checking social media, reading through a million emails,  which I as a person can be quite bad at doing, It is probable that it is blog related in some form. There are millions of apps out there afterall. 

I have learnt so much from blogging lately I share more here

So what apps are best for blogging? Well, these are my top 7 personal preference, these apps I connect to me promoting and building my blog. 

apps

Canava

This had to be my first mention because Canava has literally become my favourite app for making blog graphics and logos! I also find it useful for some of my other hobbies (I’ve recently been using Canava to make labels for penpaling) Canava is great and has a wide range of stock photos that you can use and include on your blog, and there is a free version. It is definitely worth checking this one out.

Twitter

Have I mentioned how much I have fallen in love with Twitter recently? I use this a lot more then I do Facebook, and I have met so many friends and learnt so much through the blogging community just by being on twitter. not only the massive community and support that being on twitter has given me though. Twitter is great for promoting your work.

BlogLovin

I am still a new user to Blog Lovin! but I am loving this more and more every day!

Pinterest

I am often saying ‘Pinterest is life’ I am constantly inspired by others. I am able to share my own pins promoting my ideas with links to my blog. Its a social platform heaven. I would suggest to any new blogger to take a look into Pinterest in a heartbeat.

WordPress

Depending on your blogger platform you should definitely have your blogging app installed to your devices. This will keep you up to date with your blog constantly. It does not really need a big explanation for being a top app.

OneNote

When I do not have one of my many note books to score down my thoughts and blog ideas for later, I’m using OneNote? Now Why would someone who owns a million notebooks need a digital one?
I have One Note installed on all devices, I keep digital back ups of most of my notes, and I always try to use One Note when Im out somewhere where I don’t have access to a pen and paper, After all you never know when your gonna have a brain wave. If you are not a massive stationary fan, then you definitely need to consider OneNote for blog planning.

Hoote Suite

Finally Hoote Suite, This is a great app for scheduling content to multiple social media accounts. I’m also a fan of the calendar view that this app had to show when your posts are scheduled for!

What apps do you use to keep your blog on its toes?
