It’s Friday so that means it’s time for another blogger to be featured in my Blogger Love showcase! Today, I will be featuring Melanie from Fraser’s Fun House which you can read 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 and I’m excited for you all to get to know Melanie a little better!
Tell us a bit about you and your blog.
I started Fraser’s Fun House at the end of October 2017 and being only a couple of months old I have so far been writing about things I know and enjoy. On my blog you’ll find a mix of kids stuff, days out, show reviews, Christmas, books, reviews and much more.
Why did you start blogging?
I was given the opportunity in 2017 to write for the online lifestyle magazine The Socialite UK. When I joined them my confidence was at an all-time low due to anxiety and depression, however over time writing for them gave me the courage and confidence to start my own blog alongside what I do for them- and I haven’t looked back!
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
I have always been passionate about writing and blogging allows me to write as often as I like with no restriction on topic. Since I have been blogging it has become my ‘me time’ which is something I had been lacking- we all need some time to do things we enjoy.
What’s your least favourite thing about blogging?
The only downside I have found so far whilst blogging that I just don’t have as much time to devote to it as I would like! Also I find my prime time for inspiration seems to be just as I’m falling asleep meaning I then lay awake for ages planning posts in my head!
Tell us about your favourite blog post.
My favourite post to date has to be my A to Z All About Me as it’s the first time I have really had the opportunity to let my readers in and tell them a bit more about me. (Read it here)
Describe your blog in three words.
Eclectic, personal, fun.
What do you do when you’re not blogging?
I am currently a Stay At Home Mum and I have three children (4,13 & 15yrs). When I’m not blogging I’m usually found picking up after everyone and making a desperate attempt to clean and tidy the house despite it often being a fruitless task!
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I have answered this question a few times in my life and I’m sure I have probably given different answers depending on my mood! For this post though it has to be chocolate- although I’m not sure I would survive very long on chocolate alone and my waistline wouldn’t thank me!
What would be your perfect day?
If I had a day just to myself I would grab a book and spend the day in bed reading- with plenty of snacks to keep me going- then would have an uninterrupted bubble bath to finish the day off!
What’s your top tip for getting traffic to your blog?
I have found the blogging community a great way to make friends and in turn, this helps to promote posts through taking part in blog shares and reading and sharing other’s posts. I find personally that Twitter is the most effective social media platform to share my blog.
