A Mother’s Day Gift Guide

I wrote a Mother’s Day Gift Guide post some days ago, where I shared gift ideas for our mothers. Well, I have some more gifts to share, so for those who are still wondering what to give for Mother’s Day, here are some more ideas for you.

 

ChloBo Serenity Hoop Earrings

This ChloBo brand is one British brand that screams QUALITY! This jewellery right here, like all their others, is a little beauty.

 

This Serenity Hoop Earrings in rose gold-plated on 925 sterling silver, would make a lovely Mother’s Day Gift. I love the fact that it comes in rose gold. The studded texture of the petite earrings also makes it stand out.

 

 

The Didi Faith Cross charm believed to ward off evil and protect, also complement the earrings beautiful. I like this piece a lot, I think it would make a fabulous gift to any jewellery loving woman, and the price tag is quite average at £55. ChloBo also offers free delivery on all UK Mainland orders, so get in there.

 

Mum By My Side Personalised Light Box

This Mum By My Side Personalised Light Box by Find Me A Gift, would make an excellent Mother’s Day Gift. It is so unique, and look be a lovely home decor for the interior lovers as well.

 

 

I love the fact that this light box gift can be personalised to suit various tastes. There are 5 lovely schemes to choose from – Chocolate (which I choose), Duck Egg, Monochrome, Pinks and Sunshine. You can also select the gender of the child, and include a personalised message in a maximum of 100 characters.

This cool gift currently retails at £39.99 only!

 

Spa Day

A good spa day is always an amazing gift. I know I need a spa session desperately, and I know many mothers would too. So if you are still thinking of the best Mother’s Day Gift to get, give her a gift of Spa, her mood would thank you for it!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is on Sunday, March 26, and  I know many of us struggle with gift ideas for mothers on Mother’s Day. Sometimes we are also left feeling overwhelmed and even more confused with the many gift options available, so I am going to keep this short and sweet.

Henry London Shoreditch Mesh Strap Watch with Trio Dial

I am a sucker for anything Rose Gold. I think it is a very pretty shade, and I am naturally drawn to it. I guess that explains my forever growing collection of Rose Gold items.

This elegant Shoreditch watch from Henry London, available on the AMARA Website, is a great gift idea for Mother’s Day. It features a Milanese mesh strap and luxurious rose gold casing merging effortlessly into a domed lens. The dial boasts soft rose-pink tones with a trio of sub-dials to depict the time in 24 hours and time the seconds.

You can also add a personalised message at the back of the watch.

This beautiful watch currently retails for £165.

 

Elie Beaumont Personalised Stone Leather Watch

Still on watches, I love the attention to detail with this Elie Beaumont Personalised Stone Leather Watch. The luxury packaging is superb as you can see, and the watch itself is a classic modern beauty.

The stunning watch available on the PrezzyBox website, features a thick stone coloured leather strap made from genuine quality leather with a large 38mm cream dial, and rose gold detailing, to give it that beautiful finish I love so much.

You can also include a personalised message at the back of this modern vintage watch by Elie Beaumont.

It currently retails at £54.95.

 

Perkins and Morley Wild Wood Cushions

Here is another fab gift idea for Mother’s Day; Perkins and Morley Wild Wood Cushions are great for Mothers who have a quirky sense of humour, and love their wildlife. It is also great for Mums that love updating their home decor.

I adore the beautiful and colourful designs!

This is the Wild Wood Rabbit Cushion

This is the Wild Wood Squirrel Cushion

They would make a great present this Mother’s Day. They are available from £29.99.

How to Improve your Domain Authority

As a full-time blogger, my domain authority is very important to me, and I know it is the same for many bloggers. As a Blogger and Blogger Outreach Consultant, I know many brands tend to work with bloggers that have a minimum domain authority of at least 20, so improving and maintaining a good domain authority score is very important if you plan to make money from your blog.

 


 

A blog’s domain authority is set by Moz Open Site Explorer, and it is simply a score that shows how your website is really doing. It works by crawling the web to find sites that link back to your site; it then measures the value of these links and generates a number based on the results.

Before you can have a valid domain authority, you need to have your own domain. So yourblogname.com, co.uk or net, but not .wordpress, or blogspot, if that makes any sense. Many new bloggers tend to think they have a domain authority with a free WordPress/Blogger blog, but they don’t, as their blog is piggybacking on the host platform, which explains the very high domain scores. However, blogs with a vanity domain (that is a blog with a domain name but hosted on WordPress/Blogger) do have a valid domain authority, so you don’t need to be self-hosted to have a domain authority. I see this question come up a lot online, so I thought to clarify this bit before going further.

So how do you improve your domain authority? I have blogged for over 4 years now on Fashion and Style Police, and at the moment, I have a domain authority of 33. I going to mention things that I believe has helped me.

 

Regularly Posting Quality Content

I blog almost every day and I think my blogging regularly has helped improve and maintain my domain authority. But the key is to post regular quality content and not just churn out post after post that have no depth.

Posting regular quality content would get you views, comments, likes, link backs, and shares, which all help your domain authority massively.

 

Using SEO Properly

Using SEO properly means your blog posts would appear on search engines, which makes it more likely to get views, comments, shares, and the likes. What use is a great post or blog if no one can find it? Good use of SEO increases the number of eyeballs on your blog, which will eventually increase your domain authority.

 

 

Build a Social Following

A blog’s social following does have an impact on its domain authority. If you have a decent following on social media with engaged followers, you will see an increase in your blog views, comments, shares, and the likes, which eventually helps the overall domain authority of your blog. I wrote a little more about this in my book – How to Cash in as a Blogger, so go have a read and please leave a review on Amazon once you are done. I need them reviews like I need air!

 

Commenting on Other Blogs

Commenting on other blogs does have a massive impact on the domain authority of your blog because it links back to your blog, if you leave your blog link details in the website box. However, I would advise you don’t leave your blog link under your comment except the blogger is happy with this. I personally don’t like it because I have to deal with broken links every now and again, and these links are usually the main culprits. Leaving your website link in the allocated section should do the work fine, and also make sure your comment is a decent amount of words, I would say at least 10 words if possible.

 

 

 

Writing at Least 300 Words Posts

The minimum word count of a blog post should be at least 300 words. I know sometimes it may be hard to write-up a post up to 300 words especially for Giveaway posts but that should be your ideal target. Research and experience has shown me that longer posts help improve the domain authority of a blog. And these posts also rank high on Google so it is a win-win.
