TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?

Hello I’m Denise. I’m a family and lifestyle blogger based in Suffolk in the UK. I am a planner who loves stationary and making lists. I am married and have three daughters, three fur-babies and a grandson. I love having P.J days and I am a chocoholic! I am quite girly and I love a good pampering session. I am just an average woman trying my best for myself and my family.

WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?

I started blogging in 2013 when I was in recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and I needed a creative outlet to help me get back on my feet and hopefully help and inspire others too.

HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?

Yes, it was much more focused on parenting when I first started but has moved into lots more topics as has my life!

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

When I was entering a blogging competition and took pictures of myself hugging my fridge-freezer! Years later I had my photos running as a slide show and when we had friends over it suddenly changed to one of those pictures. The look on my friends faces were a picture, they must have thought that I was bonkers!

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

There has not really been any bad things that have happened due to blogging, I think that it can be hard and I have gone through low periods where I have gotten too hung up on stats and comparing myself to other more successful bloggers but I think that is quite common in all things, not just blogging. Especially now that social media is so popular.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW BLOGGER STARTING OUT?

If you have a passion for writing and really want to express your creativity through blogging then go for it! It is highly competitive and not a get rich quick scheme or a way to be given free products. However, if you are committed to work and craft your blog then you could end up with a really rewarding career.

WHAT SURPRISED YOU ABOUT BLOGGING THAT YOU DID NOT REALISE BEFORE YOU STARTED?

How addictive it would be and how much joy it would give me. I seriously love working on my blog and connecting with people on social media. I can not imagine my life without my blog now!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

Well, I home educate my daughter and run my blog so I do not have very much spare time! I love paper crafting although I am not very good at it! I like to read and I love watching movies. I have three dogs and enjoy spending time with them, taking them on walks and entering them into fun dog shows. I play darts for a local ladies team and I enjoy playing board games and have lots of game nights with the family. I use to be a member of a local amateur dramatics society but then life got in the way but I really enjoyed the time I spent with them. I love baking and eating what I bake! Most of all I just love spending time with my family.

IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?

The first thing I would do would be to book a holiday to our favourite hotel in Spain and take the whole family there.

WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?

Abby More – she has taught me so much about building a brand and she has been a real inspiration and given me hope that one day my blog could be my main job. I think she is great.
