An alternative way to fix blurry popular post images on Blogger
I’ve had a couple of questions recently about why the popular post images on Blogger are suddenly appearing blurry. I previously posted a fix to this issue here by automatically changing the S value which controls the quality, but it seems that Blogger has changed how it hosts images and no longer uses the S value but a W and H value instead.

7 blogs to visit for Monthly Traffic Stats + Income Reports
I’m seeing more and more monthly stats and income reports show up on my blog feed lately and find the transparency so refreshing, interesting and helpful. So much so that I wanted to share them with you all. Monthly reports are where bloggers shares their traffic and stats for the month, information about any income earned within that month, their goals or tactics and give their opinion and reasonings on the report.

The Instagram Algorithm Update – What’s Happening to Instagram?

Are you a blogger who receives free products for reviews? Google publish “best practice” guidelines.
Over the weekend Google shared the best practices for bloggers who receive free products for review consideration. These guidelines have cleared up some confusion and should be followed to avoid being penalised (removed from the search results). In my previous post about NoFollow links, I said that product reviews was a grey area but it was better to make these links NoFollow as that seemed to be what Google meant. Now, with these clearer guidelines, they have made it very clear what they want bloggers to do. Not sure what DoFollow and NoFollow Links are? Read the difference between them
