Jen B

My blog:

About my blog:
Mine is a lifestyle and family blog which is my little space to talk about all of the things I love from my family to fashion and from travel to tech!
I’m a fairly new blogger and currently enjoying watching my blog grow!

My main blogging category is:
Lifestyle

How and why did you get into blogging:
I have worked in fashion and Marketing for many years and started to get involved with working with lots of influencers and bloggers. I was totally inspired by them to start my own blog. I love writing and love to have my own little space to write about all of the things I love!

One of the things that have really surprised me us just how complex it can begin to get started but I’ve loved every second and watching my blog gain followers each day is beyond exciting!

Where do you get your writing inspiration from?
Literally from everywhere and everything I do! I also spend many hours reading other peoples blogs, browsing websites and reading newspapers and magazines which all provide inspiration and ideas. With a lifestyle blog, I can easily one day be talking about my latest favourite fashion pieces and the next day be writing about a recent holiday or family day out!
Inspiration is everywhere and I often have to take a step back to absorb it!

If you could offer some words of encouragement to a newbie or frustrated blogger, what would they be?
I recently read this quote on social media which really stood out for me ‘If you get knocked back 7 times, stand up 8 times’. This really resonated with me as some days can be frustrating and things don’t always move as quickly as you want them to but if you can carry on, it will pay off!

What has changed most about blogging culture/the blogging industry since you started?
I’m very new to blogging so still learning as much as I possibly can! My recommendation would be to spend time reading other peoples blogs, link up through social media and enjoy it!

What daily tools and platforms do you use in your blogging routine, for research, promotion, sharing and other:
I blog is a word press and hosted by Siteground. My domain and email are both hosted with Go Daddy. For royalty free images, I use UnSplash and for sharing and promotion, I use twitter, facebook and Instagram.

Tell us about your greatest blogging achievement to date?
I am still small-scale compared to some of the other blogs I have seen so my biggest achievement so far is just growing the number of visitors to my site. I check stats incessantly each day and to see those numbers rise daily gives the most amazing sense of achievement!

Where do you hope blogging will take you in the future?
I hope that my blog will continue to grow and it is my dream to start to work with some big brands. Through my social channels, I have already had a paid partnership with Waitrose and Morphy Richards, so Id like to see this grow on my blog too!

I also hope to just keep enjoying it as much as I do today!
