The Blogger Interview

IMG_7748

Thankyou to the fab Emma at The Joy of Five and Morna at Awesome Austerity for tagging me in The Blogger Interview!

How did you get into blogging?

I was entering some competitions on a couple of blogs and stopped for a read – I though, hey, I could do this!It went from there really!I read lots of other blogs before finally taking the jump.I had absolutely no idea what I was doing to start with and it’s a learning curve.

I did enjoy writing stories when I was a lot younger  and can be just as much fun now.Some days I really struggle for inspiration and others I lie in bed and think of a post in seconds.

What advice would you give another blogger who is just starting out?

Be prepared for it to take over.I love it and hope to get bigger and better as time goes on but there is a lot of work involved which you don’t realise when you start.With 3 kids and a part time job I feel as though I’m always doing something and have to stop myself constantly looking at phone!

How has your blog changed since you started writing it?

When I started it was pure crap in all honesty!I wanted to write awesome posts that would get me taken seriously however it didn’t quite work out that way and I’ve ended up writing pretty juvenile posts but hey,it’s good fun!

What would be your dream campaign?

For me I would really like to work with Hotter, I adore their shoes and would love to blog for them or for my kids some kind of toy testing.How cool would it be for me them to try out new toys for review?!

Do you have a plan for your blog?

I just go from day to day with it at the moment.It would be nice to one day get to the stage where it was a full time job.I’d also love to run a linky but I’m not brave enough to go down that road yet.Plus I actually have to come up with an idea first!Harder than it seems.

What do you think about ratings?

I think everyone worries about them to some extent and who wants to think their latest post that blood, sweat and tears has gone into will be published and read by 1 person in Outer Mongolia!I sometimes watch the flutter of Tots 100 tweets when it’s updated and think I must be crap cos I’m barely inside the top 1000 never mind 100 but then remember I do it for myself so stuff it.

I now nominate Sandy at Mommy’s Little Princesses and Rachel at Mummy In Training apologies if you’ve already been nominated ladies!Anyone else who fancies it can join in too 🙂
