Meet The Blogger - Emma

Following on in my Meet The Blogger series, today I am introducing you to Emma who blogs over at Bee Money Savvy

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?

Hi I’m Emma, the one-woman team that created Bee Money Savvy. I developed beemoneysavvy.com in 2017 to pass on my financial wisdom to those seeking financial freedom. Using my website I provide practical ways to earn extra income. Improve budgeting skills and take the necessary steps towards living a debt free life!

WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?

Growing up I saw my parents barely getting by with their finances and fall into debt following some bad financial advice. Watching my parents trying to provide for their family while living from pay cheque to pay cheque made me very money-conscious. When I left school I promised myself that I would help my parents get out of debt. Finding smart ways to save money and earn extra on the side allowed me to help pay off all my parents debt (including their mortgage). I now want to help more people to achieve their own version of financial freedom!

HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?

When I first started my blog it was very much geared towards finding the best deals and free stuff. But over the past few months I’ve started writing more posts about being an ‘ethical consumer’. I think that it’s important to remember the responsibility you have when you start building your readership. And how you can leave a positive impact on them within your niche.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

[sorry I can’t think of anything haha]

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

I had an interview and photo-shoot for quite a big name company last year which at the time was a big deal for me and my blog. A month after the interview and photos were published on their website I still hadn’t been paid my agreed fee. I got in touch with the person that commissioned the work, and the company directly but I was either ignored or passed on to someone else. It took 3 months, a lot of inquiries, and even the threat of court before I managed to get my payment. Missing and late payments are frustrating as a small blogger as you lose time working on your blog when you have to be constantly chasing up payments

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

If you want your blog to succeed you need to value yourself and your work! Practice your writing, do your research, network, and look for great opportunities where your skill is valued (and you’re paid fairly).

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

A lot of bloggers are surprising willing to help. I really didn’t know what I was doing with the techie side of my blog when I started beemoneysavvy.com but the blogging community is so quick to help!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

When I’m not blogging, side-hustling, or mystery shopping, I like to stay active, eat food, and watch dog videos. I’m currently having some kind of quarter-life crisis so I’m attempting to do 25 new things in my 25th year on earth.

IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?

I would buy myself a flat. I’m currently property hunting and definitely underestimated how hard it would be. While I would love to treat myself to a nice holiday and a fancy car I’d rather have the practical things sorted first!

WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?

It has to be Emma Drew. She’s THE top money blogger in the UK but still takes the time to support smaller bloggers and empower her followers. She is the blogger I inspire to be!

    I kinda relate on the lottery part, haha! It’s really nice to have your own space and try to become more independent. Nice to meet you, Emma! 😊

    Another great interview! I love these interviews and learning more about other bloggers. I must check out Emma Drew too!

    Thank you am glad you are enjoying the series, I read Emmas Blog when I was first starting, but so many people talk about her highly x

    I like her advice to new bloggers to value themselves and their work. It is sad that some bloggers work for free to “get their foot in the door.” That is not a good practice. Creating good content takes time and effort and you should be reciprocated for that.

    It is very good advice, unfortunately when starting out you do not realise what you are worth and working for free. The one good thing in the Blogging community is that everyone supports each other and new bloggers starting out should join in with the communities for the support
