Hey there friends! I was tagged by Emirati Mama for this blogging interview. The purpose is to discover why and how bloggers blog so here goes nothing!
How did you get into blogging?
Well, I started keeping a journal when I was pregnant. I basically wrote about how my pregnancy was going or letters to my son. After he was born, it was quite difficult to find the time to sit down and write by hand. I’m a pretty fast typer and after discovering some really great mommy blogs on instagram I just thought I’d start my own and see how it went!
What advice would you give to another blogger starting out?
I’m still really new to blogging (March) so I’m still figuring it all out! I researched blogs for about five months before I actually decided to go ahead and start one. I would suggest starting out with a free blog something like wordpress.com or blogspot.com this way if you decide you’re not really feeling the whole blog thing, you don’t have to worry that you spent money on something you aren’t really interested in or worry about how to get a refund. Also, never hesitate to reach out to other bloggers for support! I’ve emailed several fellow bloggers and have always had a very positive response! 🙂
How has your blog changed since you started writing it?
Overall, I don’t think the content has really changed. I still blog about my son and my day to day activities but I tend to play around with the look of my blog. I still don’t feel like I’m 100% sold on the theme of it. When I have the time, I’m usually trying out different themes to see which I like best.
What would be your dream campaign?
Well, at the moment I don’t have one. I’m still getting the hang of blogging here so maybe that’s the next step for me?
What advice would you give to PR’s wanting to approach you for a campaign?
I’m the type of person who needs a lot of information before doing something. I like to know all the facts before I can give my honest opinion on something. I’m very open to any new opportunities that may come my way but before I get involved, I need to make sure I’m supporting something that I truly believe in. What person would I be if I didn’t really care for what I sponsored or endorsed? I’m always interested in learning more about this side of the blogging world.
Do you have a plan for your blog?
Just to continue to blog for now! It’s very therapeutic for me to write down my rambling thoughts so that’s where I’m at at this current moment!
What do you think about rankings?
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t care at all about them. There are some days where I look at rankings and statistics and think “Great. No one is reading today…” but then I remind myself that I didn’t start blogging for other people. I started my blog for me and me alone and at the end of the day, that’s all that matters!
