Rank #1: S2 E8: Growing your Instagram Following with All That is She

Podcast cover
Read more

This week I chat with the amazing Dominique of All That is She. 

Dominique is the maven behind the incredible #allthatisthree and #objectsforoutfits hashtag series on Instagram and has grown her following from 0 to 466k in less than four years! She now has an amazing lifestyle blog where she shares Instagram tips, style posts, and general musings

We chatted about finding your feet on Instagram, experimenting without stressing about your grid and remembering not to worry too much about the scaremongering and rules! 

We also dug into overcoming creative blocks and really embracing your own life -- even if you don't like flowers, slow living or coffee table books about Kinfolk (can someone tell me what the f@ck that book is about anyway?!) This is essentially where I got serious giggles and couldn't stop laughing.....

Rank #5: S1 E16: How to Avoiding Comparison with Jessica Rose Williams

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to EPISODE 16. These past few weeks have seen me burnout, want to give up before starting afresh with a new, kick ass plan. Thanks to lots of people (including myself!) but also thanks to Jessica. When I recorded this episode I was feeling really low, overwhelmed and lost. I struck up an Insta-friendship with Jessica who, perhaps without even realising, transformed me.

Anyway, all that's to say this is a great episode and one that's a little bit close to my heart! Hope you love it, and if you do: PLEASE leave a review on iTunes. It helps other people find the podcast and stops my ego from shrivelling up and dying ;)

SUBSCRIBE TO THE PODCAST

Jessica is a minimalist lifestyle blogger and coach living in Sheffield, and despite only starting her blog a few short months ago (her blog is the same age as my baby!) she’s garnering big numbers and fab engagement, due in no small part to her authentic presence and quality content. 

We chatted about minimalism, and the myths that surround it, why and how she finally started her blog and why content will always be king. 

If you’re thinking about starting a blog but you feel completely overwhelmed -- this one’s for you.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks episode. Do let me know by commenting on this post, emailing or Tweeting me or messaging me on Instagram.

Rank #7: S1 E8: How To Successfully Blog Part-Time With Sophie Cliff

Podcast cover
Read more

The week I recorded this (mid-July) my baby had a growth spurt.....yep, that's right. And she was a little more chatty and grizzly than usual so from now on expect to hear lots of her in the background! I hope you don't mind, but like Sophie said to me at the end of our chat -- I am a working mum, so hearing a baby gurgle, hiccup and snuffle while you hear me multitask is my reality. But, obvs, hope you don't mind it too much ;) 

SUBSCRIBE TO THE PODCAST

I chat to the ever lovely Sophie Cliff, who runs the eponymous blog SophieCliff.com. She’s an award nominated blogger, and covers all things travel, lifestyle and musings on her daily life with her musician hubby Sam and cute cat Lola. Sophie is one of the nicest ladies around, and manages to blog daily despite having a full-time job! 

We talked about starting out in blogging, growing a super engaged audience without caring about the rules and how she manages to create so much content while holding down a day job.

If you’re a part time blogger wondering how to make a success without losing your day job -- this one is for you.

This week I chat with returning guest Jessica Rose Williams all about minimalism, and how her blog is doing one year on.

Jessica is super transparent and keen to share all her knowledge and stumbling blocks along the way -- from Instagrammer to newbie blogger to where she is today with her awesome capsule wardrobe masterclasses and ebooks.  We both had a crazy honest chat about numbers, why and if they matter and what it feels like not to sell out

If you need a gentle reminder that you don't have to pretend you are smashing it to be successful, this one's for you.

This week I chat with the wonderful Carolyn of The Slow Traveler. It's another giggle fest as we had a natter about Instagram, slow travel (including India tangents.....) and how and why Carolyn decided to do a degree in photography. 

FULL DISCLOSURE: We recorded this episode before Carolyn hacked her own Instagram account, so that's the reason we didn't chat about it! 

Carolyn was so honest, generous and funny and I felt super inspired after chatting with her. 

If you are feeling a bit 'meh' about Instagram, this is the episode for you.

Rank #13: S2 E16: How to Stay Sane Online with Sas Petherick

Podcast cover
Read more

It's a bit of a different one today as Sas inadvertently gives me an hour of therapy! 

If you don't know Sas, she is one of the most awesome humans around. I discovered her through Sara Tasker's podcast, Hashtag Authentic and quickly became enamored with her dulcet Kiwi tones and awesome podcast Courage and Spice. 

She's a self-doubt expert, coach, and mentor for women who want to transcend their self-doubt and cultivate self-belief instead. I can't emphasise enough how incredibly empowering Sas is and tell you gently that you NEED her in your life. 

I went on one of Sas' retreats Write Yourself Home and it was a real turning point for me in my self-doubt journey. So, in this episode, we discuss something that I'm more than a little preoccupied with - feedback. Good, bad......we are all bombarded with it and especially so when you've chosen a life and career online. 

If you need to hear an episode that will make you feel everything's okay, this one is for you. In fact, whoever you are and whatever you need - this one's for you!
