My eleven answers are:
1.) When did you start blogging?
I started blogging back in June of this year after I took the plunge to start vlogging over on my YouTube channel. I always loved English at school so thought I would give it ago. Thinking no one would really want to read what I have to say.
2.) Why did you start your blog?
I started because it went side by side with my YouTube channel as mentioned above. Also there is a little bit of a sad side to my blog too. I had my third baby 8 months ago who is totally scrumptious and someone I totally adore. However sadly it wasn’t like this from the beginning. We had a really rocky start due to me battling and going through Post Natal Depression and Post Natal Anxiety. So me writing my blog gave me something to focus on especially through the dark days. I’ve covered mental health on it too a lot since I began as its so important to talk when you aren’t feeling right and nothing to feel ashamed about. I really hope my little blog can make someone else out there seek help and see that they aren’t alone.
3.) What do you do for your day job?
I have just gone back to my day job after finishing my maternity leave were I work at a private swimming pool as a Pool Side Assistant. Assisting the swimming instructor during lessons and sorting out all the admin.
4.) What would your dream job be?
When I was younger my dream job was to be a Vet, Teacher or at one point a Air Hostess. Since starting up my Channel and blog while juggling motherhood and my normal everyday job. My dream job would now been able to do blogging and vlogging full time from home so I am able to spend as much time as possible with my 3 gorgeous children and husband full time every evening been able to all eat dinner together would just be fantastic. fingers crossed maybe one day this will be reality.
5.) Who is your favorite author? and why?
I love reading a variety of authors I’ve always got my nose in a book especially at bedtime and its really hard to pick one favorite so I will mention three. My first would have to be Beatrix Potter as I grew up reading her little books and they were probably the first to spark my interest in books. My second would have to be J. K Rowling as she created Harry Potter which came to me at a time in my life when things were pretty tough due to my parents separating and I loved getting lost in the magical world of Hogwarts to take my mind off what was going off in my life. Lastly I will have to say Stephanie Meyer as when I read Twilight it really ignited my passion for reading again as it came into my life when I hadn’t read for a while and I fell in love with the written word and reading became part of my daily routine again. So I may have been greedy there with three amazing authors I certainly could have gone for more.
6.) Where do you see you and your blog in the future?
I would love to see my blog go from strength to strength. I love how its grown so far in such a short space of time but I would love to see it grow even bigger and hopefully make writing my full time job along with my vlogging and YouTube work.
7.) What is your favorite Horror film? Im not one to really handle Horror movies very well although as a Teenager and to impress Mr Hible during our early dating days I would pretend I could handle watching them then be terrified for days. Scream is probably the one I’ve watched the most over the years.
8.) Who is your favorite Blogger?
I enjoy reading lots of different blogs and since blogging myself I’ve come across even more great content than ever before. My absolute favorite would have to be Susie Jverrill over at Milo and Me and the Unmumsy Mum are two of the inspirations behind me starting my own blog.
9.) Where is your favorite city to visit?
One of my favorite cities to visit would have to be Manchester as its one of the first places me and Mr Hible ever went to stay overnight and we have visited Manchester quite a lot over the years. Going to the Trafford Center shopping, taking our daughter to see the Man City Ladies, visiting the set of Coronation Street to more recently going to see Take That at the Manchester Arena. The city holds a lot of special memories.
10.) How do you motivate yourself?
Since having depression especially motivation has been something slightly lacking. However I’ve learnt it is really important to keep yourself motivated no matter how small the task. I make myself leave the house at least one a day for fresh air as it really helps lift my mood. With my blogging and Vlogging knowing I have deadlines and a schedule keeps me motivated to get content out there.
11.) What will your new year resolution be if any?
To keep working hard and trying to be the best mum I can be, Making new memories and dreams come true for my three children.
