Pinterest Group Board Etiquette

A look at the etiquette of pinning to group board and the etiquette for running group boards. Very informative!
By now, loads of bloggers and social media managers are well aware of the benefits gained from promoting content on Pinterest.

If you still need convincing on just how great Pinterest is, do a quick Google News search. You'll find articles about the power of Pinterest and how it is beginning to rival even Google and present itself as an alternative, visual search engine.

When used correctly, one particular aspect of Pinterest has the power to catapult your pageviews exponentially. That aspect is the group board.

With this tutorial, I'd like to look at the benefits of group boards and discuss group board etiquette from the point of view of the pinners as well as board owners.

Peanut Butter & Nutella Single Serve Mug Cookie

Yield 1

Peanut Butter & Nutella Single Serve Mug Cookie 

Remember those Crunchy Peanut Butter & Nutella cookies I shared a few weeks ago? Before those were born, I created this personal-sized baby. It had been a rough day: we'd had tantrums over absolutely everything. Including the fact that we were having tantrums! When Callum finally gave in and collapsed on the sofa in exhaustion from all the shouting and crying and put himself to sleep, I escaped into the kitchen, in need of something indulgent. You know how they say "necessity is the mother of invention?" Yup, totally.

I'll admit it was almost blind fury and desperation--I was just chucking things into my favorite blue mug and stirring like a mad woman. I even forgot to write this recipe down! (It's a good thing I've made it about 2312598 times since!) I whacked it in the microwave and about 5 minutes later (after it cooled) I leaned up against the kitchen counter and dug in, sipping on a cold glass of almond milk between forkfuls.

So when I say this recipe is perfect for when you need a hit of peanut butter and Nutella, you know what I mean. I always need a hit on those screamy, I-am-a-2-year-old-hear-me-roar days. Not that I'm encouraging emotional eating or anything like that, but when do you find yourself in the throes of a problem only the holy union of chocolate and peanut butter can fix?

The Truth About: Pregnancy Triggered Coeliac Disease and Gluten Intolerance

A personal account of pregnancy-triggered Coeliac Disease & Gluten Intolerance. A look at the symptoms of the disease, diagnosis and the stages of acceptance.

She shares her experience with being diagnosed with Coleiac Disease after her pregnancy triggered a gluten intolerance.

After months of speculation, I finally confirmed that I have Coeliac (also spelled Celiac) Disease, which is an intolerance to wheat gluten. I thought it was only fitting that I shared my story here since this is after all a food blog. I'm no expert on living a gluten-free lifestyle, since I'm relatively new to the entire diet. 

But what I have noticed is that there's not much information surrounding things that trigger a gluten intolerance. My Coeliac Disease was triggered by pregnancy and I wasn't even aware that that was a possible outcome of being pregnant! 

I'll share my experience with Coeliac Disease from symptoms to acceptance and lifestyle changes. I'll address the future of Anyonita Nibbles and what impact my diagnosis will have on this food blog.

Saucy Oven Baby Back Ribs Recipe

Enjoy flavorful and tender baby back ribs even if you don't have the outdoor space for a barbecue grill!
With these easy-to-make tender baby back ribs, you can have barbecue ribs any time! | Anyonita Nibbles
Yield 2 racks of ribs

Saucy Oven Baby Back Ribs Recipe 

These baby back ribs are coated with an easy four-ingredient dry rub and slow cooked and basted with barbecue sauce before serving. Growing up in the south in America, I had my fair share of ribs. In the south, we do ribs. Barbecue isn't just a thing you have when the weather's sunny and the days are long. Barbecue is its own food group down south, with entire towns centering their whole identity around it. Living in a country that doesn't share this culture and that has generally fewer days where a barbecue is even possible because of the buckets of rain and bitter cold, means that I miss the smell of smoke wafting in the air!

My Dream Foodie Shortbreak: A Culinary Weekend in Paris #ParisFoodTrip UK

We loaded up the car with suitcases, a super long pregnancy pillow, lots of drinks and comfy shoes. At my feet was a basket of snacks, a guidebook to France with dozens of highlighted pages with their corners turned down: we were going to spend 10 days driving around Northern France and Paris!

And ... we were driving from Manchester to Dover, catching a ferry and then finishing our drive across the Channel. And ... I was six months pregnant.

Why Google Analytics is not as Accurate as You Think

The truth about the inaccuracies on Google Analytics and why you should trust your own stats from Anyonita Nibbles
When I first started trying to earn money through my blog, the one piece of advice that kept cropping up was: "Get Google Analytics". Even now, when you inquire about working with a company or brand, their PR rep usually sends through an email asking for a screenshot of your Google Analytics dashboard. 

There seems to be this unspoken rule in blogging and with online businesses that traffic to your site is inconclusive unless it was pulled from the shiny platform of Google Analytics. Well, that's not exactly true. Google Analytics may actually keep one of the most inaccurate records of blog traffic.

I usually get an email each month from a new blogger or a blogger trying to increase their traffic that says something along the lines of "Why is my Google Analytics so much lower than my Blogger or Wordpress?" Well, I'm going to show you why and I'm going to give you proof of why this is a fact and not just an opinion.
