As you may know from Twitter or if you are part of the same Facebook groups as me, I am starting my own blogger showcase. It’s called Blogger Love and in this post, I’ll tell you all about it!
About Blogger Love
You may have seen last week, I was featured in a blogger showcase which is what inspired me to start my own. I was already thinking about starting something similar myself. I think it’s really important for bloggers to support each other. That’s how I came up with the name Blogger Love. Bloggers need to love and help each other which is what I aim to do with this showcase.
I’m hoping that Blogger Love will become a regular feature on my blog and I already have a waiting list up until March. Every Friday there will be a new Blogger Love post featuring a different blogger who will answer a set of questions. This is so that their existing readers can get to know them and hopefully they will get some new readers.
I thought today, just for fun, I would answer the questions myself so that you can all get to know me a little and so that you kind of get an idea of what Blogger Love will be like.
Tell us a bit about you and your blog.
My name is Em and I blog about everything I’m interested in. I have a degree in Event Management and I’m currently in the process of trying to do something with that degree!
Why did you start blogging?
I’ve already written an entire post on this which you can read here.
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
My favourite thing is definitely having my own little space where I can just be me. Where I can talk about whatever I’m interested in. I also love that I’ve met a few really lovely people through blogging and I’m hoping to make more friends in 2018!
What’s your least favourite thing about blogging?
The photography side of it. I’m really not very good at it but it’s something I said I wanted to improve on this year so if you have any tips, I’d love to hear them!
Tell us about your favourite blog post.
My favourite blog post is probably My Mental Health Story because it took a lot for me to firstly, sit there and write it and then I was terrified about pressing that publish button but I’m so glad I did! Every comment I’ve read relating to that post has been so positive and encouraging and I know it’s helped at least one person which is all I wanted to do. It also opened up a line of communication with one of my best friends who had been feeling the same way but neither of us spoke about it so we didn’t know. Now, if either of us is feeling down, we know we can speak to each other and know how the other is feeling.
Describe your blog in three words.
Pink, me and (hopefully) improving.
What do you do when you’re not blogging?
As of next Thursday, not a lot! I’m currently working 4 days a week in Citizens Advice but next week that will be coming to an end. It was just a 16-week placement but it has flown by and I have loved it! I guess, until I find a new job, when I’m not blogging I will be binge-watching some TV! I’m currently on The Crown but I’m finding it tricky to get into.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
What would be your perfect day?
Having the Harry Potter studio tour all to myself and take as long as I wanted in there! I’d also love to get to choose as many things as I wanted from the gift shop! It’s so expensive.
What’s your top tip for getting traffic to your blog?
That is something I’m trying to figure out! Why do you think I made it one of the questions?😂
