Well lucky old me – i have been nommed 3 times – yes 3 times!! For the amazing, incredibly prestigious, all singing, all dancing, supercallifragetlistic (sp?!) ‘Blog Your Heart Out Award’.
‘What do you win’ i hear you cry?
Um Nothing. But that’s beside the point. It’s the recognition that counts. apparently.
Anyway being the lazy arse that i am i don’t really get around to doing these sort of things but soon as 3 (did i mention that?) amazing bloggers had been so kind to put me forward then i figured hey, pull your finger out and get with the programme!
First a bit o love for my mentionee’s – the lovely Kerrie ‘i don’t know how she does it’ McGiveron at Wife, Mum, Student Bum, the controversial Donna ‘chip hater’ Wishart at Redhead Babyled and the ever expanding Colette ‘3 under 5 are you mental?’ B at We’re Going On An Adventure. Thank you kindly ladies :)
So anyway, get to the point! I have to answer five questions and then pick five more people to pass the accolade onto. Here goes:-
Who/What encouraged you to start blogging?
I’ve worked in the advertising industry since i finished Uni (many years ago) and more recently my roles have focused around social media. I oversee the management of social media channels for various brands and am also very involved in identifying and developing relationships with relevant bloggers. Part of the reason i decided to blog to see how it worked from the other side.
The other reason was as a personal record for my littlies and myself that we can look back on when we are all older – although not sure about this one anymore as i seem to spend most of my time whinging about them, they are not that bad honest!
How did you choose what topics to blog about?
I don’t really have a particular theme but i always try to write honestly. Parenting can be hard and when I’m having a bad day it helps to write it all down and read all of the ‘me too’ comments. I also like to blog about things that get on my wick – smug, judgey, twatish parents for one!
Tell us something that people don’t know about you
I love rabbits, have broken 5 bones and was a runner up in Brighton’s ‘Miss Palace Pier’ when i was 11.
What three words best describe your style?
Passionate, bossy, real.
What do you like to do when your not blogging?
Drink gin – although i do that when I’m blogging too ;)
Thanks for reading! The Lovely, friendly, helpful, funny, super sassy bloggers i would like to answer the questions are: –
