What is your blog about?
My blog is a UK lifestyle blog which features me and my little family and what we get up to, mostly in monthly roundups. My two children are currently 11 months and three years old so they’re regularly featured on my blog! I am also passionate about natural beauty, vegetarian healthy plant based food, small businesses, fabulous clothes, home and garden (we’ve been doing up our first home for two years nearly,) plus growing veg! This all features on my lovely blog!

Is this your first blog?

When did you start your current blog?
2013 :)

What made you do it?
Originally as a business blog, but then I decided to write about different things and my lifestyle blogging hobby was born! Now I love my blog and it’s a blog in it’s own right.

What was your first blog post about?
Something really silly about how I thought some Angel Cakes were delicious! It’s not there any more. I had a huge clear out of old blog posts once and ones I don’t agree with anymore as I’ve changed so much as a person since my blog began.

What do you think is the most useful tool to you as a blogger?
Twitter. I love the blog hashtags and find great posts to read in these as well as being able to share my own blog posts and reach a wider audience.

Do people in your real life know about your blog? If yes, has your blog helped you career wise? If no, why? Do you purposefully keep it a secret?
I work for myself so I guess in a way it helps my business if it gets more traffic to my website. I’m not sure if my writing is good enough to ever be paid to write, but who knows, one day perhaps!

What has been the one thing (blog post, project, etc) that you have been really proud of?
I was very proud of my ‘Made By Steffie B’ blog post because the photos I took are the best I’ve ever taken. I’m proud of my whole blog now though. Especially since having a ‘clear out’ and now blogging about only things which are important to me.

Where do you see your blog in a year?
Probably in the same place! I’m happy with it and want to continue on this great journey. Though a few more readers would always be nice!

What do you wish you knew when starting your blog?
To write about what I’m passionate about, rather than writing to try and fit in with being ‘a blogger’.

What do you wish you know more about now?

How do you keep motivated to post?
By experiencing new things all the time and enjoying blogging so much I just want to do it all the time! Blogging is motivation enough!
