How and why did you get into blogging:
I am a web designer by trade but have always had a passion for money saving and deals. I am addicted to websites like MSE and Hotukdeals and have always wanted to do something similar but was limited with time.

I actually started Daily Deals UK from my sick bed! I found out I was pregnant for twins in August 2016 and was very ill with obstetric cholestasis during the pregnancy which left me pretty much hospitalised and bed bound for 8 months. It was in this time of boredom that I decided to make my dream a reality. With my web design experience, I thought how hard can it be, right?

Where do you get your writing inspiration from?
As a mum of 5 kids, I am always on the lookout for ways to save money and buy things cheaper so I basically live and breathe money saving. From the food shopping to special occasions and clothes when you have a large family spending is inevitable but shopping savvy is key.

If you could offer some words of encouragement to a newbie or frustrated blogger, what would they be?
Keep at it! Try and post unique content that is easier to rank, there are so many bloggers out there these days that generic posts are 10 a penny. Find a niche that you really enjoy and writing will never get tedious.

What has changed most about blogging culture/the blogging industry since you started?
The competition. There are thousands of amazing blogs out there as many more parents pursue their dreams of working from home. Mainly due to the astronomical costs of childcare people are forced to find online work and blogging can be extremely lucrative so it’s an attractive option.

What daily tools and platforms do you use in your blogging routine, for research, promotion, sharing and other:
My website is Joomla based so I’m totally out of the WordPress clique!
I use Gimp for all my images which is a great free image manipulation software.

Tell us about your greatest blogging achievement to date?
My greatest (personal) achievement was designing the website from scratch, I had to learn how to code in CSS and Javascript which was no mean feat all whilst looking after newborn twins and 3 other children as well as running my web design and SEO company. I have worked day and night for months on end and it’s finally starting to pay off.

Where do you hope blogging will take you in the future?
I want to earn enough money so that my partner doesn’t have to work out in the cold any more, and we as a family can be financially stable for life doing something I absolutely LOVE!
