Interviewing Bloggers

Ever since I have been blogging I’ve tried to think of different ways I can connect to bloggers in different ways. I love finding out about different bloggers and exploring different blogs. In my opinion the blogging community is always coming up with different ideas to connect us all together which makes us very strong as a group. I have joined loads of different twitter chats & Instagram pods which has allowed me to meet fabulous bloggers around the world who are just like me.

I have seen before bloggers interview different bloggers which is a great way to find out about each other and the true inspiration behind their own blog. So I decided I would give this ago and interview 3 different bloggers I’ve found through different social media platforms. In this blog I am interviewing 3 girls called, Harriet | @HarrietDayBlog, @Coffeewithkays & @Francesca_nels!

 1.  Tell the readers a brief description about yourself and your blog?

I’m currently 1hXKCKsSr8 years old and a student in London. My blog is mainly a lifestyle blog where I post about general issues with touches of beauty and fashion. Through my blog I aim to promote positivity and allow others to gain confidence.

2.  What inspired you to start blogging?

I’ve always loved reading blogs and when I stated uni I had a little more time on my hands so thought why not give it a go.

3.  Has blogging influenced your life in anyway, if so how?

I think it’s really helped improve my writing. I was never the best at English but I’ve seen a real improvement in my essays since starting blogging. On a little more negative note I often find myself wanting to buy more things because of blogging oooops!

4.  What is your biggest blog achievement?

I don’t really have a specific achievement with my blog, the things that make me feel the best are the comments. I love a genuine long comment where someone has really read my post and enjoyed it.

5.  Where do you to be in 5 years time with your blog or possible a future goal? 

Oh gosh, I haven’t really thought about this. Blogging for me is a little hobby and as much as I love progressing it hasn’t really crossed my mind where I want to go with it. I would hope that I’ll be still blogging and maybe a few more brand collaborations under my belt.

6.  Where do you find inspiration/ideas for your blog posts?

Being a lifestyle blog a lot of my ideas just come from my feelings. Often I review products or give my opinion on certain things. However sometimes I don’t have enough. If I don’t have anything springing to mind I’ll often take a look on bloglovin to see if I can get inspiration from any posts I read!

7.  Do you have any favourite bloggers or any bloggers that really inspire you?

I love Poppy Deyes from www.poppydeyes.com her blog is so me and I really love her fashion posts. Another blogger I love is Maria from www.mariaj.co.uk her posts and photos are insane and I would love my blog to look like hers one day!

1. Tell the readers a brief description about yourself and your blog?

Hi! My name is Kayleigh-Anne, I’m 22, I’m a first year university student. I’ve been blogging for almost a year now, I love to blog about anything from fashion and beauty to advice and food!

2. What inspired you to start blogging?

I had a diary for years and during a clear out I stumbled across my old diaries and I flicked through reading them thinking how great it would have been to share these with the world. My diary entries would be product reviews and deep meaningful life lesson talks and it almost felt like I was giving advice to the reader even though the reader would only ever be me, so I wanted to change that and I decided to essential share my new “diary” with the world in the form of a blog!

3. Has blogging influenced your life in anyway, if so how?

I’ve got to know some really wonderful people through blogging, it’s great to be a part of a community in which everyone is so supportive and positive towards you. I feel like if I’m ever having a bad day I can turn to my blog or my blogging friends and both will cheer me up. It’s also been so therapeutic to be able to express my feelings into a blog post, I’ve also got to work with some brands and that’s been incredible too!

4. What is your biggest blog achievement?

Honestly I think the achievement for me is that I’ve managed to get so much out of this blog. I was once voted as blogger of the month by a website which blew me away however after an interview with them and waiting a long time for the announcement to go up it never happened which kind of sucked. I think personally the thing I’m most proud of is when I made a blog post about DIY Christmas cookie decorations and it hit 3000 reads in about 2 days, it felt surreal! You can read that here: www.coffeewithkays.co.uk/2016/12/16/diy-christmas-cookie-decorations/

5. Where do you want to in 5 years time with your blog or a possible future goal?

I think it’s pretty much every bloggers dream to be able to support themselves with their blog and make a career from it. I would of course love for that to happen! Time can only tell, Coffee With Kays also has a SUPER EXCITING secret project in the making which you’ll find out more about in a few weeks time so keep your eyes peeled on my blog for that!

6. What do you find frustrating about blogging?

I think the expectations in the blogging world has become a very big thing, everyone seems to need to have incredible photography skills, bright beautiful Instagram pages and the most incredible imaginative content to be able to call themselves bloggers when really if you got an internet connection & a passion for putting thoughts and feelings into a post, you can do it, you can blog about whatever you want to, you don’t need an incredible camera, brilliant lighting and the latest collection of beauty products. Make it what you want to and just go for it.

7. Where do you find inspiration/ideas for your blog posts?

They literally just pop into my head, I see something and think I can make a blog about it, or something happens to me and it makes me want to type away! I love-inspiring myself with other people’s blogs too though!

8. Do you have any bloggers that love and read religiously? If so name them and their blogs.
I love love love poppy deyes, she makes blogging about the simplest of things so interesting with her words and photos, I love it. I also religiously follow Leanne Haycock (www.leannehycck.co.uk), she’s a good friend of mine and her blog is just so incredible!

1.  Tell the readers brief description about yourself and your blog?
Hey, I’m Francesca and I blog over at mylifeinrosetintedglasses.com where you’ll find an array of beauty and lifestyle posts. I’m 25 a wife and a mum of two!!
2.  What inspired you to start blogging?
Well I love writing and always have so I wanted to explore that and give myself something to keep me writing, you know let that part of me flourish! Being a mum I don’t get a lot of time to myself so its really important to me that whilst the kids are young I’m working towards something  and even better when that something is what I love doing!! Mylifeinrosetintedglasses was born and although it can be tough finding the time to write sometimes it has become a big part of me that I’m not giving up on!
3.  Has blogging influenced your life in anyway, if so how?
I’d say yes! After having my kids friendships deteriorated (you’ll be surprised how much this happens to people), I became someone that I didn’t recognise anymore, I let myself go, continued to put on weight, grew anxious and afraid of social situations so I’d stay locked in the house with my confidence slowly shrinking away! Blogging gave me a little kick up the butt, I’m much more confident now, I’ve pushed myself to do things I haven’t done in a long time, I’ve made tons of lovely friends and now I feel a part of something bigger. I’m not a recluse anymore haha and I’m learning more about myself too, to top it all off I’m just having so much fun!
4.  What is your biggest blog achievement?
When I first started out in Jan 2016 I didn’t have much of a vision for my blog I just knew I wanted to do it! In the February I thought about combining loads of my passions into the blog like makeup and beauty, I wrote a post about Younique makeup (I know so many people can’t stand the way its sold and commissioned but I really adore some of the products) so I wrote a piece about the company and my fave products and it went viral!!! I woke up to over 140k shares and a crazy amount of views! Thats my fave achievement to date!
5.  Where do you want to be in 5 years time with your blog or possible future goal?
To be honest I just want to continue blogging and growing a bigger audience! I’d like to hope that more people read my blog regularly and eventually I’d love to make a little bit of cash from it!! I think every blogger would love to make blogging their full time job and really thats the dream!
6.  Where do you find inspiration/ideas for your blog posts?
I write about everything I’m interested in topic wise so when I get an idea come to mind and I’ll write a note of it so I don’t forget. Ultimately I love writing content that I’d enjoy reading and also content that helps those in need of it! I have a huge list of ideas for post on my laptop and when I find the time I pick one and write it!!
7.  Do you have any favourite bloggers or any bloggers that really inspire you?
Recently I’ve been really into dorkface, shes such an awesome lass and her content is always really enjoyable with lush bright photos! I also love reading Vix Meldrew’s blog. Her sheer honesty and creative content always gets me giggling and keeps me entertained she really knows how to lure you into her blog and its fantastic!
 
 
Hope you all have enjoyed reading this post as much as I’ve enjoyed finding out about different bloggers! I would love to here what you think and I would love to get to know more bloggers, send me a message so I can get to know you as well!
