Blogging Talk 3- The Blogger Programme...

Hi Guys,

Today I've got another instalment of 'Blogging Talk'! It feels so great to have a recurring series! If you want to read the other posts you can find no.1 here and no.2 here! This time I will be talking (or writing?) about The Blogger Programme.

For those of you who don't know, the Blogger Programme is a website which helps brands connect with bloggers. It has a lot of brands (some small and some larger) who all want to find a blogger partner. This appealed to me because I think it would be interesting to join up with a brand to enhance both mine and their following. Also, I would love the opportunity to try new things! 

My initial thought was of the safety. As I don't own a P.O Box, items would be sent directly to my door and I was worried about who could get my address. Well, the only people who have access to your address are the brands that you would like to work with and approve. This was great for me as it meant I had nothing to worry about which just added to the enjoyment.

My second thought stemmed from a Youtube comment. It was on a video by Just Jodes (the link is to her blog) that included an unboxing from the blogger programme. Somebody said that to get any benefit from the Blogger Programme you need to have a high number of followers. This was immediately a concern because when I became a member I had only 14 followers.

The comment was not true. Yes, some brands do require a certain amount of followers (over different networks) to work with them but there are brands which you can apply to work with who chose their representative based on their blog;not the amount of followers. If you are still concerned: it's also a great way to get your blog noticed by other bloggers!

I hope you learnt something new about the Blogger Programme! If you enjoyed this post then please follow my Google + to help me reach 20 followers by the end of the month. I only need 2 more! Check out some of my other posts and don't forget to read again on Wednesday!

Thank you for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
