Hello!

Welcome to Bonjour, Blogger! – the UK’s leading independent blogger guide.

Established in May 2013, Bonjour, Blogger! was set up from a need of more UK specific advice regarding blogging and all topics relating to it like monetisation and regulation. It aims to help inform and educate bloggers in ways to develop and improve their website in a clear and easy to understand style.

I’m Hayley and I’ve been blogging since 2000 –when we didn’t even call it a blog! I started my first blog to talk about what I got up to at school that day, and taught myself how to create my own website.

Here’s what one of my early blogs looked like
(My very first blog was a pink background with red text and was super image heavy. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately!), archive.org hasn’t saved the images so it doesn’t look like much now)

One of the things Bonjour, Blogger! likes to promote is the idea of community over competition – we can all grow better if we work together to help each other up. Some of the ways that we encourage helping each other out are by helping others in our Facebook group for bloggers and influencers and with our blogger opportunities page. If you see anything on there that isn’t suitable for you but your friend would be good at, send it over to them! If you read a post on here that’s really useful, we’d love it if you shared it with your audience.

We’re here for you to network with other bloggers, learn new tips and tricks and develop your own site. We don’t just share new knowledge but relevant news and reviews so you can keep up to date with the hottest trends and technology without getting bogged down in jargon.

We’re always looking for people who love blogging and social media and have something to share with the community. If you have any comments or suggestions on what you’d like to see more of, please do get in touch!!
