Blog Promo Links - Blog Tags & Surveys

Last month I featured facebook groups which are a pretty standard and well known tool for promoting your blog. This month I wanted to highlight one that is of a completely different vein. Blog tags, also known as surveys and questionnaires, are a method that also help you develop new content for your blog while promoting it. So how do they work? Pretty simple! Each tag works around the same idea an activity, usually a set of questions that the blogger needs to answer.  Once you’ve answered your questions you then nominate other bloggers to do it.1 How does this benefit me? Usually each bloggerRead More →

The Geeky Girl Tag

I love surveys, memes, challenges – anything that asks me to answer things that I haven’t thought up myself. I’ll often repost those ‘ask me…’ graphics on twitter and instagram to see what people come up with. So when I saw this geeky girl tag answered by Kitten at The Howling Wolfheart I had to jump in! The tag is originally by Cassie at ZombieGoddess Beauty and she has also done a Gamer Tag too! 1. What is your must-have tech gadget? Once upon a time I would have said it was my PC, however, after a year of having my tablet it wins thisRead More →

Geek Blogs Unite - Between The Pages Theme

There’s no formal FF5 prompts this month so I’ll be filling in with a few old ones and some other topics. This week it’s time for another theme over at Geek Blogs Unite and this time it’s Between the Pages.

If you’ve not heard about the new series, the protagonist is one of the Potential Slayers who was chosen in the final episode of the show. I’ve only read one of White’sRead More →

If you’ve been following me on social media then you’ve probably seen all this, but I wanted to document it all here too. You’ll also find April’s prompt at the end of the post. Enjoy!   Current Game I’m currently playing Guild Wars 2 with my fiancé. I’ve played most of it including the Heart of Thorns expansion, and this is his first time playing it.

Screenshot Challenge

A while back I had the idea of doing an instagram challenge for video games. That idea then evolved into this; the Screenshot Challenge. The idea of this challenge is to join in the weekly twitter and instagram tag #screenshotsunday and making things a bit more interesting by having a weekly prompt. Starting from March 2017 I’ll be posting a set of prompts/challenges for each sunday. They will be purposefully open or vague so you can interpret them as you wish. There are only two rules; follow the prompt and post on a sunday (as much as you can, if you’re a bit late don’tRead More →
