If you’re blogging in a popular niche like health, wellness, fitness, DIY, finance, tech, design, photography, blogging (insert any other popular topic here), the truth is you need a game plan to make your blog stand out.

You can’t simply publish the same types of posts and cover the same topics as everyone else and expect to see results.

1. Know What Makes You Unique

If there are hundreds or thousands of other bloggers publishing content on the same topics as your blog, it's critical that you take a unique angle or approach.
What is it about you that makes your blog different from all the others?
If your blog isn’t different, unique, or special in some way, it probably won't make a strong enough impression on first-time visitors.
The people visiting your blog likely visit several other blogs in your niche as well.
If yours feels like “just another blog”, readers aren't likely to latch on to it and keep coming back.
In order for your blog to be successful over the long term, you'll need to be able to develop a loyal base of readers that truly care about the content that you publish.
One of the best ways to grow a loyal audience is to know what makes you (and your blog) unique, and then make that obvious to your visitors as well.

2. Build Your Network

One of the most important, and often overlooked, factors in blogging success is networking.
Every successful blogger is well connected to other bloggers and influential people in their niche.
Of course, having a successful blog makes it much easier to build a network, but many successful bloggers reached success because they prioritized networking from the start.
There are several different ways bloggers can benefit from a strong network, including:
  1. Guest post opportunities
  2. Social media shares that lead to traffic and new readers
  3. Links from other blogs and websites
  4. Opportunities for interviews and podcast appearances
  5. Promotion of your products and product launches
  6. Opportunities to promote other people’s products as an affiliate
  7. Testimonials for your blog, product, or service

3. Don't Rely on Other Blogs for Content Ideas

Every blogger needs ideas for new content.
Most bloggers turn to other blogs when they’re looking for ideas.
This can involve browsing other blogs or checking Pinterest boards to see what topics you could write about.
The problem with this approach is that you will only be covering the same topics as every other blogger in your niche.
It’s a lot easier to stand out from the crowd if you write some posts on subjects that nobody else is writing about, or if you at least take a unique approach or stance on a topic that others are covering.
This doesn’t mean that you can’t write about some of the same topics that other blogs in your niche are covering or that all of your articles have to focus on totally new ideas.
But at least some of your articles should feel fresh even to visitors that have already read countless articles on other blogs in your niche.

4. Don't Try to Be Everywhere

When you’re trying to establish a blog and grow your audience, one of the biggest challenges you’ll face is deciding how to use your time.
No matter how much time you have to work on your blog it will never be enough to get everything done.
Your blogging tasks will include writing and publishing your blog content, working on the design and layout of your blog, managing your social media profiles, growing your email list and staying in touch with your subscribers, leaving comments on other blogs, responding to comments on your own posts, possibly writing guest posts to be published at other blogs, and more.
If you try to do everything and try to be everywhere you’re likely to wind up spinning your wheels and not making much progress.
Instead, try focusing your time in a few specific areas.

5. Have Patience

I’ve been blogging full-time for 10 years now and one of the most common mistakes I see is bloggers giving up to soon.
Blogging can be a great way to make money, but it takes time, effort, and patience.
You can’t give up because you’re not seeing results right away.
While there are a few rare blogs that have risen to popularity very quickly, they are the minority.
Most successful blogs took time to grow.
It often takes a year or more before you really start to see results with your blog, especially if it’s your first blog.
In my opinion, it’s important to set out with a long-term focus, and this is especially important if you’re in a crowded niche.

It is no secret that I am a bit of an organizational nerd, and I love changing up my space and the way I organize and display my belongings. I am also a little bit of a memory hoarder, from tickets to trinkets I have a whole lot of ‘special' bits and bobs collected from my life and travels.
I have been meaning to expand my shelving game in my house for a long time, and I have decided that now is the time to do it. After having had a little look around, both in stores and online, I have concluded that by making my own shelves I can not only save some money but also make my shelves exactly how I want them.

Practical & Pretty Shelving Ideas

1. Wine Box Shelves

These Wine Box Shelves are so adaptable, which is something I am a big fan of. You could make your collection of boxes as big or as small as you wanted, filling a significant portion of a wall or just a tiny corner.
You could use them practically, for tableware or books for example, or as a purely decorative piece, filling the boxes with vases, photo frames or special keepsakes. This specific example is sat on the floor as it was intended to cover something on the wall, but you would very easily mount these wine boxes onto the wall if you wanted them to be suspended.

2. Copper Pipe Shelves

Because of how small and easy to mount these are, you could use them anywhere in the house, whether it's as a place to display a small succulent in a living room or a handy place to pop your keys just inside your front door. You could use any color piping and coasters, I think the copper is effective though and gives off that very in-fashion industrial vibe.


Not only can you place wooden planks across the pegs to create shelves, but you can also use the pegs to hang coats, bags, jewelry, you name it.
I think the perfect place to put this would be in the entrance way to a house. By having it here, it is not only an easy place to hang a coat as you enter the house, or a handy place to keep keys and wallets, but a great place to have a little reed diffuser or candle. This DIY delivers in appearance and practicality, which is just perfect, and although it might take a little while to make it, it is something that you will be able to keep and use daily for years to come.

4. Honeycomb Shelves

One thing I had previously found rather impractical about honeycomb style shelving was that you could not put much on it, but this specific DIY totally solves that problem by having a shelf across the middle of the hexagon. Of course, you wouldn't have to do this if you didn't want to, just as easily as you could add more shelves, or mix and match like they have in this example. Again, very customizable, which gets a big thumbs up from me.


I have seen things like this in sweet little cottages we have stayed in on holidays in the countryside, but never considered taking it and using it to create a feature in a room with a more modern interior design.
The mix of the wood and the metal detaining is incredibly stylish, and there are very few steps involved when it comes to putting them together. These would work well in any space, especially because you can choose the size of wood you use. I like the idea of having a few of these clustered together, maybe in the living area displaying bright bottles and jars.


Yes, very true and being a lifestyle blogger I have come to understand the power of EXPRESSION in words. Though not very major but yeah, expressing oneself does gives a different perspective to our daily routine lifestyle.

Express it whenever you feel it or whenever you think you want to, don't keep your words or feelings struggling to reach out of the walls of your brain. Expressing in a defined way for anything is correct,i don't understand why people have stopped themselves from praising  someone's achievement or mentoring someones wrong.

We all like to hear kind words when we struggle hard. Using frequent positive communication is not only going to build the wall of affection but also removing the gap of miscommunication. Both praise and correction are necessary but I believe the more the former,the more is the love.

In this season of love...
I would request people to express your 
Affection      Love           Respect        Gratitude        Happiness
to the ones whom they feel for.

1. Start it with your parents and children,express your thankfulness to them this V-Day

2. Go along thank your best friends and friends this season.

3. Continue your expression to your loved ones.

4. Extend your heartfelt thanks to your mentors and guides this week.

5. And most importantly,lean back for a minute and thank the almighty for whatever you are.

Apply these general praises to specific activities, behaviors and accomplishments:
1. I appreciate it so much when you…
2. You were very brave to do that.
3. You are really improving at…
4. It’s OK. We all make mistakes.
5. Thank you for…
6. You made a good decision.
7. Being your mom makes me happy.
8. You worked really hard on that!
9. You are very good at…
10. What do you think about…?
11. You handled that very well.
12. I forgive you for…
13. Now you’re getting the hang of it!
14. You are an excellent helper.
15. That’s your best effort yet!
16. You really used your imagination on that project.
17. Have a terrific day!
18. I trust you.
19. I am proud of you for doing your best.
20. Your efforts are paying off.
21. You mean so much to me.
22. That was so kind of you!
23. You figured it out!
24. I can tell you’ve been practicing.
25. You could really help me with this.
26. You are a good friend to…
27. Good thinking!
28. I love you.

But don’t overdo it

So this season of LOVE....Express IT,,,If you Feel IT....

this is all about how to make CHOCOLATE BOXES to gift the handmade chocolates....

1. How to Make a Chocolate Box


Chocolate boxes are a fun, delicious way to package a gift such as jewelry, candy, and other items. A chocolate box is a new take on a box of chocolates. You can fill it with chocolate truffles or your recipients' favorite candies, toffee, or caramels. Learn how to make one with this photo tutorial.

2. Gather Your Ingredients and Melt Your Coating


Gather your ingredients. To make one large (5-inch) or three small (2-inch) boxes, you will need:

  •      -12 ounces chocolate candy coating or tempered chocolate
  • -Ruler
  • -Any decorations or candy to finish the box, like a --chocolate monogram or filigree

Candy coating is recommended as opposed to real chocolate. Although it doesn't taste as good, it is much easier to work with and remains firm even at warm room temperature. If you do want to use real chocolate, make sure that you temper it so that it does not soften when it gets warm.
Begin by melting the candy coating in the microwave until it is smooth and entirely free of lumps.

3.  Pour the Coating Onto A Baking Sheet
Pour the melted coating or tempered chocolate onto a baking sheet that's been lined with parchment paper, waxed paper, or aluminum foil. Use a knife or a spatula to spread the coating into a thin, even layer, between 1/4-1/8 inch thick. If you're using a baking sheet approximately 10x15 inches, it should cover most of the sheet.

4.  Partially Set the Coating
Gently tap the sheet against the counter several times to even out the thickness of the chocolate and bring any air bubbles to the surface. Refrigerate the tray to set the coating for 4-5 minutes. You want it to be partially set but not cool and hard.

5.  Measure and Score the Chocolate                                           
While the coating is still somewhat malleable, take your ruler and a knife and begin to score lines in the coating. It's best to do this while it's still soft because if you wait until it's hard, it's more likely to crack or break.
The exact measurements you make are up to you. If you want to make small boxes for holding jewelry, candies, or other small tokens, you'll want to make a series of 2-inch or 3-inch squares, five squares total for a box without a lid, six squares if you want the lid.
If you want to make a large box, suitable for holding several dozen truffles or other large gifts, it's best to make a 5-inch base and four sides that measure 5 by 3.5 inches. You can always re-melt and re-measure if you make any mistakes.
Once the coating has been cut to the desired sizes, return the tray to the refrigerator until the coating is entirely set and hardened.

6.  Start Assembling Your Box


Break apart the chocolate squares on the scored lines, and set all the pieces of your box aside. Take the scraps of coating remaining and re-melt them in the microwave. Place the bottom of your box on a piece of parchment, and use your paintbrush to dab the melted coating all along one side of the bottom.

7. Add A Wall to your Chocolate Box


Add the walls and any decorations that you like. Here i have used basic stensil design,you can use anything that you want...a bow or candies as on ginger bread cakes or we call also use nuts to just stick on  the walls of the chocolate box

8.  Your Chocolate Box is Now Finished
