  1. Great post! You have some awesome tips here, thank you!!

  2. I’ve looked on moz for my score.... but help me! I’m confused

  3. I am currently in the process of doing all of this but my god does it take a while!! I actually quite like most blog admin but some bits do get boring like broken link checking, I really hope to get over 20 with my DA soon :)

    1. Broken link checking is the worst! I'm still trying to work out where some of mine are haha! Me too that's one of my goals for this year!! Xx

  4. Great post - I will definitely have to start doing some of these :)

  5. These are some fab ideas!! Reminded me of some things I really need to be doing on my blog xx

  6. This was a very helpful post! Thank you for all the tips!

  7. I often forget to do that, but I think it's so important to have a check-up on your blog every now and then. It makes such a difference! I'm in the middle of planning very exciting changes!

  11. This post is amazing, I've actually been making improvements to my blog over the past few months and considering using Tailwind too. X

    1. Yay I'm so glad you like it! It's such a good sense of achievement when you can tick off each improvement! 😊 Xx

  12. This is a really useful list! I'm slowly working my way through some of these things but it's so much more time-consuming than people think. I've made myself a shiny new media kit and I'm now in the process of ticking off a list of brands to contact. Hopefully I'll get something fab from it! x

    1. Yes Alice! I'm sure you will your blog is amazing and any brand would be lucky to work with you! I need to make a media kit maybe I should add it to the list! Xx

  13. All of these are on my to do list actually and I really hope that I get them all done this January! Broken links are such a pain to check and fix but it can really help your blog once they're fixed. I'm actually going self-hosted and moving to Wordpress which is so exciting :)x
