Meet The Blogger – Katie

Following on in my Meet The Blogger series, today I am introducing you to Katie who blogs over at Just Katie.

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?

Hi, I’m Katie, a lifestyle blogger based in Leeds in the UK. I’m a cat lover and can’t walk into Primark without buying something! I talk about all things beauty, fashion, lifestyle, food/fitness and travel on my blog!

WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?

I started blogging back in 2014 when I was on my placement year at University in Manchester and I didn’t know anyone there! Having followed blogs for years I decided one evening to give it a go and utilise the long evenings and I’ve not looked back since. I’ve been blogging throughout my degree and now whilst I work full-time as an Events Manager!

HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?

Yes, my content has improved a lot and my photography too. I’ve made so many friends through this industry too which helps to inspire me with my blog everyday!

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

Probably being contacted by a company and asked if I’d like to review a spiralizer. I was honestly so shocked I couldn’t believe it, I thought it was the most random thing ever.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

Trying not to compare myself and my blog to others!

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

Do it because you enjoy it and write content that you’d like to read. I will never forget one piece of adviser a blogger told me; ” Don’t compare you content to others, feel inspired and write content that will help your readers”.

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

How many different niches there are within the blogging industry!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

I love to go out and eat food with my boyfriend and friends. Shop in Primark (I go at least once a week!) and also go to the gym!

IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?

Buy our dream home

WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?

  1. Thanks Katie. I completely agree that we shouldn’t compare our content to others. We need to feel inspired and write content that will help our readers. Everyone has a voice– that’s the difference.

  2. I also remember that day when I got my first invitation as a blogger back in 2010. Being recognized as a blogger when you just started is such an amazing feeling. Let’s keep on writing!

  3. Lovely to meet new blogger. My content and photography have improved since I started blogging too. There is still room for improvement.

    1. There is always room for improvement no matter how much we learn and improve, I think if we did not think that things would get boring and it would show

  4. Being real and avoiding the urge to compare yourself and your blog with others is a good practice. It is a fact that the competition is stiff but if you just remain true to yourself and follow your passion (just like Katie), you will definitely find success!
