Meet The Blogger – Anne
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?
I am Anne a retired nurse from Bristol. I am married with five grown up children, two grandchildren and a cat.
WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
It sounds odd but I started by mystery shopping after I retired I then realised that the reports I was writing were very similar to a lot of blog posts I was reading so I thought I would try to see if I could do it.
HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?
I started out intending to write a travel blog but found my most popular posts were about my home town so I have been writing more about my local area.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
I have not got any funny stories that I can think of.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
I tried to get into my site and got the message this site is not secure. Luckily my host provider was able to solve the problem.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW BLOGGER STARTING OUT?
Decide why you want to blog and who you want to write for and then just start. If you want a get rich scheme there are easier ways of earning money.
WHAT SURPRISED YOU ABOUT BLOGGING THAT YOU DID NOT REALISE BEFORE YOU STARTED?
I was surprised how many granny bloggers there are. I belong to a very active granny blogger facebook group and am constantly suprisedo at the range of interests and subjects covered. I also did not understand the importance of social media.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
I belong to a walk in the past history group and I like visiting local attractions and finding out more about their history I also love travelling at home and abroad.
IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?
I have most of what I need so I would probably pass most of my winnings on to my children.
WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?
I like the Glasgow gallivanter because she can make Scottish museums sound interesting.
