Keep in touch with Social Media (3 min read)

Social media, robot, society

Social Media (what I use)

The upper two social media platforms are the ones I really use. I don’t have twitter because in my opinion it’s almost the same as Instagram, it’s just that I like to see pictures instead of text and I just love how you can scroll through someone’s feed. I don’t use snapchat because really what’s that about… Almost every blogger has an Instagram! it’s also a great platform if you want to start a small business!

Facebook is something I haven’t been using a lot lately, I only have Facebook to post photos and sometimes share a video of cats… or dogs… oh and music. I also have my family on Facebook. Some live in other countries so it’s nice to be able to keep in touch with them.

I recently made a Bloglovin’ account and linked my blog to the account of Bloglovin’. So if you have a Bloglovin’ account too then there’s a follow button on my page on the right side. I still have to figure out how it works though.

Gaining followers

There is only one way to get more followers and that is to be active yourself, not only in posting but especially in reading in the Reader of WordPress. Comment, like, have conversations, follow blogs, it doesn’t matter as long as you’re active. People love it when they get likes or comments, I mean don’t you? I love it when people comment and give likes, that’s why I started blogging in the first place. I scroll through the Reader and I give likes and comment a lot, this way you’ll get more followers. Sometimes if you have the same subject blog/post you can comment on their post and with some typing tactic you could lead them to read your blog or follow.

for example:

commenting on someone else’s post:
me: Your photos are so awesome!
him/her: thank you, I appreciate that! 🙂
me: I have been there too, I took a lot of photos which I also posted on my blog 🙂
him/her: cool, I’ll check that out ^^

Read a post or not? What attracts you? (1 min read)

breakfast, read a post, food, party, decoration

To read a post…

or not to read?

Tell me, what do you look at if you scroll through the blog? Is it the title that makes you want to read? or is it the featured photo that makes you curious and want to read a post? I’d like to know how you guys look at posts before you actually read them.

I personally get curious if I see an awesome photo (which you set as the featured photo for your post). I try my best to upload quality pictures for you guys. I also like “the more photos, the more fun it is to read the story“. This is also why I like Instagram so much! I love to scroll through feeds and watch pictures. You can find me 24/7 on IG (ok ok not really 24/7 I like to get some sleep too)

Let me know how you guys look at posts before you click on them 🙂

*the photo in this post: We did this on mother’s day for breakfast and millions of photos were taken that day haha

Cheers! and follow my blog and here on IG, I’ll follow back of course!

Saal Digital NL review

Saal Digital NL

Saal Digital review.

Nederlands (Dutch) scroll down for the english version

In deze review heb ik het over een fotoboek dat gemaakt is door Saal Digital. Deze mocht ik testen naar aanleiding van mijn aanmelding hiervoor. Het eerste gedeelte is over het boek zelf. Het tweede gedeelte is over de software.

Deel 1.

Ik heb op een Zondag mijn boek besteld. Donderdag is mijn boek binnen gekomen van 19x19cm. Dit is naar mijn mening een uitstekende levertijd, niks om over te klagen. De eerste indruk is dat het een super mooi boek is.

De voorkant is met een glans/lamineer laag zoals ik dat ook bij mijn andere boeken heb. De binnenpagina’s zijn op een soort stevig Ice White/Pearl papier geprint en deze heb ik mat gelaten (dus geen glans laag erover) zodat ik het kan vergelijken met mijn andere boeken. De foto’s zien er scherp uit. Dit papier heeft een soort structuur erin waardoor de foto in het zonlicht wat korrelig lijkt, dit komt door de structuur van het papier! Dit heb ik ook met mijn andere boeken! Dit is dus geen minpunt maar dit is meer mijn kijk op de print aangezien ik zelf bij een grafisch bedrijf werk, dus ik zal er misschien met andere ogen naar kijken (misschien kijk ik wel iets te precies).

Happy New Year! 2017

cosmos, firework

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! xoxo

I know we are already a week into 2017 but It’s not too late to wish everyone a Happy New Year and best wishes (I think)! May all your goals and dreams be fulfilled (or at least a step closer). Bless all of you and thank you for sticking around and reading even though I don’t really have a posting schedule lol.

I have some pictures of NYE below. It was a quiet one this year, the mist wasn’t really helping either so we couldn’t see the firework very clear around midnight.

I have a few more things coming up in the next weeks. About how my performance went for the good cause “3FM serious request” and how we spend our Christmas at home with the family, you can expect this… end of 2017… haha joke 🙂

Also 3 music tips below the photos to start the new year 🙂 I love “can’t help falling in love” (Elvis Presley), this is the version sung by Haley Reinhart, I flippin’ love this version!!
