  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any more tips to improve home lighitng? I’m also planning to start my own home improvement blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Kudos thanks hamptonbay

    1. Thanks so much.
      As for home lighting, I have no idea. (Most of my pictures are taken outside.) I honestly don't know what I am doing most of the time, just figuring things out as I go.
      I think professionalism is key. (Says the girl who doesn't even have a proper camera.) If you cut corners in the beginning they come back to bite you later. A paid option might not be the worst idea if you know what you want. I would suggest joining some facebook groups for bloggers. There are more knowledgeable people there who can probably help you more than I can.
      All the best.

Sharon Waugh

Sharon is a writer, cruise ship entertainment host and freelance unicorn wrangler. She is currently taking a break from her seafaring adventures to explore some more landlocked locations from her homebase in Johannesburg, South Africa. She likes to photograph a plastic lawn flamingo 'Rodrigo' on her travels because it seemed like a good idea ten years ago and 53 countries later, it’s probably too late to turn back now.

 Sharon greatly dislikes reading 'travel blogs' by people who are just rephrasing press releases or composing lists like '15 ways to travel the world for cheap', specifically formulated for SEO, with absolutely no evidence that the writers have ever left their bedrooms. (This is not one of those blogs.) Sharon also dislikes bigotry and referring to herself in first person, apparently.
