Welcome to another edition of Blogger Love! Today, the blogger I will be spotlighting is Hatty from Holme and Away which you can read find here. I ask everyone who wants to be featured in Blogger Love to answer a few questions so that we can get to know them and their blog so, let’s all get to know Hatty together!
Tell us a bit about you and your blog.
I’m Hatty, and I live in Cumbria, right on the edge of the Lake District. It is such a beautiful place with so much to offer. My blog is called Holme & Away, and it is, in the most basic terms, a blog which aims to tell the stories of the people and places I encounter around me and on my travels.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging when I was living in France and needed a way to remember everything I was doing and seeing; and I’ve had the blogging bug ever since!
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
My favourite thing about blogging is that it gives you the freedom to be creative, and it has allowed me personally to meet a wide range of people and have some great experiences too!
What’s your least favourite thing about blogging?
It’s hard to have a least favourite thing, but the part that most frustrates me is that it is not my full-time job, and so I can’t give it 100% all the time. It makes it difficult to create something that could be great if I had the time.
Tell us about your favourite blog post.
My favourite blog post is the one I wrote about the Palace of Versailles. It was my last post I wrote about my time in France, and reading it always brings back so many great memories for me. I hope it’s at least slightly interesting to my readers too, but for me it’s a bit of a nostalgia trip!
Describe your blog in three words.
History, Places and People.
What do you do when you’re not blogging?
When I’m not blogging, and working, I can be found with friends in a little café, or out walking with my Dad. There’s so much to do near to my house I’m never at loss of things to do.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Ooh.. that’s a hard one! I’d have to say crème brûlée.
What would be your perfect day?
I think my perfect day would be one where I woke up nice and early, and then took a plane to anywhere for my next adventure!
What’s your top tip for getting traffic to your blog?
My top tip for traffic is to network as much as you can. Get on Facebook groups, and Twitter chats etc. and get talking to both bloggers and new readers. Get yourself seen!
