Where to find sponsored posts and blogging collaborations

I have been running Fashion and Style Police since October 2012. It took me ages to figure out how to make a living from my blog. I still remember my first paid blogging collaboration. It happened when my blog was 4 months old and it was a whooping £25! Now that was snack money even back in 2012 but I still remember being very excited that a brand wanted to work with me. If you are wondering where to find sponsored posts and blogging collaborations you are reading the right post. I will be sharing 5 places to find paid blog collaborations so you can start making some money off your blog. We are all experiencing all sorts of things at the moment and with the whole working from home scenario, you now have the time to work even more on your blogs.

Where to find sponsored posts and blogging collaborations
Get Blogged

I have been working with Get Blogged for some months now and I really like how they operate. It is a great platform to find paid blogging gigs. There are sponsored posts opportunities for every type of blogs, even new blogs with a low domain authority. You need a domain authority of at least 10 to apply for jobs and the higher your domain authority is, the more opportunities for your blog and the more money you get. They also pay quickly and the briefs are always detailed and straightforward. I enjoy working with Get Blogged a lot. Register your blog and see for yourself.

Getfluence

I started working with Getfluence this year. It is another great platform to find well paid blogging collaborations. For this platform, you get contacted once an advertiser is interested in your blog. The payment is usually processed within 10 days once the blog post is live, and the blogging briefs are also very straightforward. It is always a pleasure working with Getfluence. You can register your blog and try the platform for yourself.

Bloggers Required

I have used Bloggers Required for years to find paid blogging jobs. I have worked with hundreds of brands through the platform. It is always a great spot to start looking for sponsored blog posts. There are loads of sponsored ads and you just register interest for the ads that work with your blog.

Twitter

Twitter is always a great platform to find paid blogging jobs. You can search for collaborations using #prrequest #journorequest #bloggerrequest and so on. You can also search for SEOs and PRs and give them a follow. If there is an email on their bio, sending a quick introductory email is another great way to get their eyeballs on your blog.

Facebook Groups

I find Facebook groups very useful for finding sponsored posts requests. Some great groups are “UK Influencer Opportunities” and “Blogger Opportunities”.

I hope you find this post useful and start making some money off your blog. If you are interested in growing your blog to the point where brands want to work with you, do contact me via email – fashionandstylepolice@gmail.com and take advantage of my blog coaching service.

Thanks for reading. Have a great day.

 

 

 

 

Tips for coping in the heatwave

Coping in the heatwave has been hard. It has been very warm this week here in Cheshire, England. The weather has been so sunny and humid. It has been a struggle to stay comfortable indoors especially at nighttime. I don’t cope well in extremely warm temperatures. When it gets too warm, I struggle to stay on top of everything. The heat makes it ten times harder to concentrate but I have found some tips that have helped me cope better in the heatwave.

Tips for coping in the heatwave
Drink more water

I find myself drinking more water when it is warm, which is good. Drinking water regularly keeps me cool and hydrated. It also does wonders for my skin, leaving it clean and clear. You should also drink little cups of water here and there even when you don’t feel thirsty. This will replace all the fluids you are losing from sweat. Try to stick to drinking just water as much as possible.

Keep the blinds and curtains closed during the day

This helps keep the heat out, leaving your house cool, which helps you sleep better. Leaving the blinds and curtains down during the day is the oldest trick to deal with the heatwave.

Take regular cool showers

I take cool showers during the heatwave at least twice a day. This cools me down, gets rid of the sweat, and allows me to sleep better. The kids really enjoy cool showers too when it gets really warm. Try not to get the water too cold though so your body doesn’t react negatively. At the end of the day, you should be sticking to temperatures you are comfortable with.

Replace your duvet with a thinner fabric

When it gets really warm, I get rid of my duvet and use a thinner fabric as a cover up. It helps me sleep better.

Run your wrists under a cold tap

Running cold water on your wrists will lower your body temperature.

Wear light, loose clothing

Wearing light, loose clothing will keep you comfy when the weather gets really warm. In a heatwave, the last thing you want is to have to do with tight clothing soiled in sweat.

Spritz your face with water

This is one of my favourite things to do when the weather gets unbearable warm. Spritzing my face with cool water keeps my body temperature low. I like to keep my little bottle in the fridge so the water is cool for when I need it.

How are you coping in the heatwave? I can’t wait until it is all over and normal weather comes back. Please share your tips for coping in the heatwave.

 

 

Top 6 Cheap Smartphone Upgrades

*Collaborative post.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with technology these days, particularly with smartphones. The technology in our phones is amazing, and it has completely revolutionized how we live our lives. We are more connected than ever and have constant access to information. 

However, with such rapid advancements in such technology, the prices of phones have skyrocketed. It’s quite common for your brand new £1,000 phone to become old news within a few months.

Luckily, if you’re not a tech junkie or obsessed with having the latest and greatest smartphone, there are plenty of accessories and apps out there that can take your current phone to the next level. What’s more, many of these upgrades are either cheap or completely free. 

Here are six cheap smartphone accessories and apps that will give your smartphone a well-needed boost.

A battery case

Unfortunately, one of the most common issues that smartphones face is battery life. Depending on charging habits and overall use, the extent of this problem can vary. 

However, there is a practical and cool solution to this – a battery case. This smartphone case comes with a built-in battery, giving you extra juice if you run out of charge. 

If your budget allows it, you can opt for a wireless charger, but the wired cheaper versions can be just as good.

Translating app

Travelling to non-English speaking countries will never be the same once you download a translating app, like Google Translate. These apps use your camera to translate language in real-time.

Clip-on camera lens

If you fancy yourself as an amateur photographer but can’t afford the high spec camera smartphones, a clip-on camera lens could be the upgrade you’ve been waiting for. 

These lenses provide a variety of options like a fisheye lens, a microlens, and a wide-angle lens, giving more depth and angles to your photos and videos. Other features may include extended zoom, colour filters, and additional lenses.

Tracking app

A lot of smartphones come equipped with tracking software that allows you to locate your phone if it’s stolen or misplaced. Alternatively, a host of free tracking apps can help protect your phone and information from theft. 

Some allow your phone to be accessed remotely, preventing thieves from using it if it’s stolen. Others give location and information data for potential scam calls and texts. Be sure to check out the best option for you.

Waterproof case

If you haven’t got the latest and greatest smartphone on the market, your phone isn’t likely to be waterproof. To keep up with the latest trend, invest in a waterproof case. It gives added protection to your phone and allows you to take photos and videos underwater. 

These cases are surprisingly affordable and are available for many phone models.

Document scanner

If you’re a student or someone who works in an office, you will undoubtedly marvel at the handiness of a document scanner app. Eliminating the need for a printer and scanner, you can use your camera to create a scanned PDF file that can be swiftly attached to an e-mail.
