How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
I’ve been blogging now for almost 5 years. I started blogging because I wanted a distraction from the day job and I enjoyed writing about travel so much.
What do you wish you had known before you started?
To think about the name of the blog more – what would people naturally google to find the information I provide
What one tip would you give to a new blogger?
Comparison is the thief of joy.
What is the most surprising thing you have learned since you started blogging?
What an industry it is, I literally had no idea. It’s been fascinating to see it develop and change over the last 5 years.
What is the best thing about blogging?
Friends and amazing holidays.
What new skills have you learned since you started blogging?
To write in a different style. With a legal background my writing style was quite formal and it is much less so now. I’ve also learned to share a lot. If you share knowledge good things come back to you.
What is the most unusual thing you have done/received because of blogging?
The whole family being filmed by the LTA and having a house full of camera crew at 6am on a Saturday morning.
What has been your proudest blogging achievement so far?
Winning my very first award for Best Family Travel Blog. I didn’t believe it would happen.
What is your blogging goal for the next year?
To develop the website to produce a much more passive income, at the moment the majority of my income comes from PR campaigns.
What will you be doing in 5 years time?
I don’t know and that’s one of the most exciting things.
Will we see you at a BlogOn event this year?
Yes you will
If Yes, What do you hope to learn more about at BlogOn?
SEO – always more about SEO
