Following on in my Meet The Blogger series, today I am introducing you to Donna who blogs over at Savvy Mum UK.
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?
Hi my name is Donna and I am a money saving and Family blogger at SavvymumUK
WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I’ve always been a keen money saver and I knew lots money saving techniques. It was frustrating that more people were not using money saving techniques themselves so I wanted a platform that I could use to share them to the wider world. I also still had so much to learn from other people so it’s been a two way thing.
HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?
Yes, I actually write in it now! haha. I liked the idea of having a blog and i had written my static informative posts but after that I was stumped for a while. As we all know, a blog requires continuous work and written posts and this is something I didn’t do for a long time. Now that I have slowly started to incorporate family life into my blog I now have something else to write about.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
I don’t think i’ve had any funny moments. I do have to laugh at the brands that want you to advertise them for free.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
Hmmm, Just self doubt and constantly wondering if i’m worth it and if my blog is any good.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW BLOGGER STARTING OUT?
Just go for it. There is no right or wrong way of doing it. Everyone has a difference of opinion on what they think a blogger should and shouldn’t be doing but do what you enjoy. It’s no fun if you don’t enjoy what you do.
WHAT SURPRISED YOU ABOUT BLOGGING THAT YOU DID NOT REALISE BEFORE YOU STARTED?
How much I am worth.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
Spare time? gosh, what is that….I can never switch off and it’s something I really need to learn to do. I need to enjoy time with my family more and put work to bed.
IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?
I would take my family to Disneyland in Florida. I was lucky enough to go 3 times as a child and it’s a dream of mine to take my children just the once whilst they are young enough (although my eldest is already 14)
WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?
I have a lot of respect for many bloggers but my niche is quite tight and we all work hard. I don’t read many other blogs other than those who I can relate to so It would have to be Emma Drew, Katy Kicker and Di Coke.
