img_1181As many of you know I enjoy blogging for many reasons, it gives me an outlet for when I am stressed or don’t feel too good. I spend most of my time indoors on my own which is ok as I then get to do things my own way and at my own pace depending how I am feeling that day.

I have been doing some product reviews this year which has been really good and a bit different to all the book reviews I do, I am still doing those in fact I have read even more this year so far. I think books are getting better and better and raising the bar a lot which I guess is good but I really like to promote the new authors as well.

I have looked into the taking of photos a bit more and am really loving the flat lay type of pictures like this.


This was my first attempt, simple but I think it captures what I was aiming for, a good bottle of wine for two. I have now compiled a list of things I need for these shots, like ribbon, lights (I have these) small china trinkets, wallpaper samples, artificial flowers, tiles, feathers, cactus’ so next time I go out I will be looking for these bits to aid my photography, I even have a nice wooden crate for these things to go in….I need to paint it though, roll on Spring. The other thing I need to learn how to do and it is probably very simple, is putting lots of things on a page on their own, like this.

They seem to always have a white background but how do you get rid of the back ground so you just have the item?

I think I will get one of the round reflectors of light as they are very reasonable on Ebay.

A lot of bloggers use the Olympus pen camera but when I looked for one there are so many different models I wasn’t sure where to start. It would be good to be able to upload a photo to my blog straight away.

So it is onwards and upwards with my blog, I will be doing a new web page next month, I am looking for a design I like at the moment. I will stay with WordPress as I think they are very good. Is there anyone in Kent that uses WordPress as I have a couple of queries please?

If you have any product reviews then please get in touch. K
