Happy Friday! In today’s edition of Blogger Love, I will be featuring Cristina, a lifestyle and travel blogger from Criddle Me This 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 so I’m excited for you all to get to know Cristina a little better!
Tell us a bit about you and your blog.
My name is Cristina and I’m a travel and lifestyle blogger from Devon but now living in London. I like to blog about my trips, new experiences, my thoughts and all the lovely things I find which I think you might find a bit lovely too.
Why did you start blogging?
I began my career as a print journalist, working for national newspapers in the UK. When I moved to broadcast, I wanted to continue writing and work on light and fun posts, my day job is news and can get a little serious sometimes!
It’s also a journal of sorts, where I can store my memories, but I hope others enjoy them too.
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
I like going out and experiencing new places and things, then trying to recreate those moments in writing.
What’s your least favourite thing about blogging?
I hate how sometimes the things you work really hard don’t get the most engagement. Sometimes I find it’s when they don’t meet stereotypical ‘blogger’ moulds.
Tell us about your favourite blog post.
Describe your blog in three words.
Fun, colourful and positive
What do you do when you’re not blogging?
I’m a television producer, covering the news. That’s what I spend the majority of my time doing! It’s hard work and long hours, but I love it and wouldn’t change it for the world. When I’m not working, I like to travel, go for food and drink with friends or just lay in bed and binge-watch series.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Chicken Nuggets. Next.
What would be your perfect day?
My perfect day would be waking up in a luxury hotel somewhere exotic, sunny and beautiful. The rest of the day would be spent exploring, sampling food and drink, swimming in the sea and sunbathing. I’d finish off with a warm bath and candles!
What’s your top tip for getting traffic to your blog?
Twitter is a huge driver of traffic for me. I schedule posts to go out around 4/5 times a day on there and tag RT accounts. I try to engage as much as possible with other Twitter users too, and not limit myself to just blog accounts!
I hope you all enjoyed getting to know Cristina through those questions. Don’t forget to check out her blog here. If you want to follow Cristina on social media, you can do so on Instagram and Twitter.
