I have been getting some questions on my Social Media (Instagram and Twitter) about the photography tools that I use, love and recommend. I thought I would write a quick post for you guys to that you can have a complete list of all the photography equipment I use to shoot, edit and process photos for my blog and social media accounts. If you are looking to invest in the right equipment for taking photos for your blog, here’s a round-up of everything you would need. (In my humble opinion)  Hope you’ll find this useful! View Post

Why You Should Start a Blog

A lot of people think about starting a blog but don’t know if it is actually something they want to pursue. They either feel like they have nothing to blog about, that their life is not interesting enough, that no one is interested in their hobbies or they are just plain scared of what other people will think of them.  In this blog post, I will tell you why these insecurities are rubbish and why you should just do it. I will tell you my story and what blogging has done personally for me.  View Post

Step-By-Step Guide On How To Start A Travel Blog

If you are thinking about starting a blog and think that it is too difficult then I have some good news for you. You can literally start a blog today! Underneath I will show you exactly which steps I took in order for me to start this blog.  1. FIND A NAME  Your very first step into the blogging world should be picking a name. When thinking of a name for your blog you need to take a few things into consideration. Firstly, you want the name to be memorable. It should define what your blog is about and who you are as a person. (You should always blog about things that you love, as it will reflect in your writing and therefore elevate your blog)   Keep in mind that your name should not be too limiting. For example, you can name your blog “The golden retriever’’. That will limit yourself on what you can blog about. People who will look for your site will only expect content about Golden Retrievers. This can be fine if it that is your only goal. But you are limiting yourself to branch out. What if you decide to adopt another dog and that is a German Sheppard? You don’t want to create a separate blog for that dog? I know this is a bit short-sighted, but you understand what I mean right?  You, therefore, need a name that allows for growth and expansion. People change and therefore your blogging needs will chance as well. Make sure you allow for your blog to chance with you. Don’t limit your blog’s growth by setting a time (“Travelling in your twenties”) or geographical limit (“Anna in Australia”) Now, some bloggers will also tell you to think about SEO factors when picking your blog name. In a nutshell, SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization” and refers to activities that improve your ranking on Google and other search engines.   What it means is that you should add keywords that rank high on google to your blog name. The best keywords for your niche can be found here.  For example, to have a higher SEO for my blog I should have added: Bondi to basic travel blog Bondi to basic solo traveler Bondi to basic female traveler I personally don’t really care for these names and couldn’t really make it work.  Your blog name shouldn’t sound like a generic website but it should sound like YOU. Because your writing and your life is the reason why people decide to hang around. How I came up with name ‘Bondi to Basic’: I was brainstorming on a name for either a vlog or blog for quite a while. I didn’t want to have a blog with my name on it, but I did want it to be a clean and simple name. I like the double letter names, so one of the options that I had was:  “Bondi to Bahrain’. But I have never been to Bahrain and I don’t know if I ever will. So I figured that was… View Post
