TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?
Hi, I’m Ella from typicalmummy.co.uk I’m a mum of 2 from Staffordshire and I blog about family travel, days out and lifestyle. I’m also a part-time Drama teacher and examiner, a mental-health warrior and a poly-glandular auto-immune fighter.
WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I started off on Instagram as I love photography and liked the idea of having a space to record our family adventures – a bit like an online family photo album. Then my wonderful friend Katy who blogs at “Otis and Us” encouraged me to get a website too and so “Typical Mummy” was born.
HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?
Not really. It’s always been my little place on the internet to record and share our family adventures.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
I’m not sure there has been a “funniest” moment. There have been lots of happy ones though!
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
I haven’t had any bad moments so far…touch wood!!
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW BLOGGER STARTING OUT?
Just enjoy it! Be honest and be you. And try to get your head around SEO asap!
WHAT SURPRISED YOU ABOUT BLOGGING THAT YOU DID NOT REALISE BEFORE YOU STARTED?
Just how much work goes into it and how much time you have to spend on it. It’s not just a case of typing up a quick post and editing a few photos every now and then, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. I don’t think many people realise that!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
Spend as much time with family and friends as possible!
IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?
Ooooh….go on an amazing holiday!
WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?
One of my best friends, the afore-mentioned Katy from “Otis and Us” who introduced me to the wonderful world of blogging!
