Top five tips you would give to new bloggers?

Try and have at least part of  a small number of blog posts prepared at a time, there is nothing worse than a blank page when you’re under pressure

List, lists, lists- if you always write down what you have to do you will never end up flustered! 

If you have a bit of time free go looking for some fun memes for your blog, there’s some great ones out there!

Don’t get too worried about what other people are doing, just put your head down, work hard and enjoy!

Remember that you’re blogging for fun!

About Bernadette


Bernadette Maycock (writing as B. R. Maycock) participates in a closed Facebook group called Image, Write, Inspire (IWI), led by the award-winning author Carmel Harrington (Beyond Grace’s Rainbow, The Life You Left) Bernadette has just started a book review blog (https://brmaycock.wordpress.com/) that is in complete infancy, reviewing books that are ‘the lighter side of heavy TBR lists,’ in particular chick lit (her first love!) and women’s fiction.

She lives in Co. Westmeath, Ireland with her brilliantly out there husband, Keith, and four amazing children- Paul, Conor, Aidan and Brian. She can be found on twitter most days as @brmaycock.

Here’’s the book description of Bernadette’s latest book Snowday and I just love the cover.

Book description


Sometimes hot cocoa just isn’t enough to keep you warm in the snow…

Eloise is too busy juggling the chaos of three kids, an ever present ex-husband and a demanding boss to even remember the last time dating crossed her mind.

But as soft snow falls silently all around, romance twinkles with the flakes.

After being single for so long, Eloise suddenly has a lot of choices. Too many choices. Will anyone be worthy of melting the guard around her heart to let love in?

A fun-filled, festive read for fans of Christie Barlow, Fiona Gibson and Colleen Coleman

My thanks to Bernadette for taking time out of her busy schedule to answer my #TopFiveThursday questions, it’s much appreciated.
