About my blog:
My blog is pretty new, and it focuses on travel and lifestyle. I talk about my own adventures and experiences, often delving deeper into the truth behind the breathtaking Instagram posts of travel bloggers. It also includes travel tips and travel guides.
My main blogging category is:
How and why did you get into blogging:
For several years I have worked as a freelance blogger and content writer, working with a variety of businesses. Whilst I enjoy this, I realised that the only way to write about what I really love and want to talk about was to start my own blog. I love to share my experiences and inspire others to take some of the trips that I have taken. I like to both inform and entertain readers. Furthermore, it’s a record for myself, for me to look back on.
Where do you get your writing inspiration from?
My writing is largely inspired by the things that I get up to in my free time, as this is what I write about. I am also influenced by other bloggers and what they are writing about.
If you could offer some words of encouragement to a newbie or frustrated blogger, what would they be?
Don’t stress about how many followers you have or how many people are reading your blog. Commit to writing regularly, but write for yourself, and the rest will come. Engage with other bloggers out there, as there is a large and very supportive community of us out there.
What has changed most about blogging culture/the blogging industry since you started?
I’m pretty new to blogging, but one thing I have noticed is that these days many people only want to blog as a way to make money through sponsored posts etc. I find this sad – before the days of influencer marketing, people wrote blogs purely because they enjoyed it.
What daily tools and platforms do you use in your blogging routine, for research, promotion, sharing and other:
I use WordPress for my blog and promote through a variety of social channels: Twitter, Pinterest and Bloglovin. I love to use Canva to create graphics – it makes it so easy! I also use MailChimp for an easy way to send beautiful emails.
Tell us about your greatest blogging achievement to date?
As my blog is still new this may seem like a small achievement, however, another more established blogger recently named me in her favourite seven bloggers this year, noting that the way I write is beautiful. I was so pleased.
Where do you hope blogging will take you in the future?
As my blog grows, I hope to continue to grow my audience and inspire others to take the trips I have taken, and give them the information that they need. I simply want to make a difference to the lives of others, and to become the go-to place for travel advice and information.
