The Blogging Pod is a podcast for bloggers, by me Giles, an active blogger who's also trying to grow a successful blog. I give blogging tips and advice on running successful blogs that I've learnt first hand by experimenting and making mistakes.
In this podcast you'll get honest advice about the reality of blogging. This podcast is different to other blogging podcasts as I'm right in the middle of growing my blog.
I'm not a keynote speaker, I don't have a team of content writers, I'm not selling any products, I'm just like you. Trying to create a successful blog alongside life and a day job, and learning plenty along the way.
I'm also a professional digital marketer, so I'll also be sharing all sorts of other useful blogging knowledge I've acquired, such as SEO, usability, content marketing, plugins, social media etc.
I talk about blogging learnings I’m picking up along the way, outside of what I’ve learned from the pro’s, that aren't discussed as much by top level of bloggers. So join me on my blogging journey, and let's become the next pro bloggers together.
