TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?
Hi am Laura . I am a full time blogger from the Scottish Highlands. I run three sites. my main one is missljbeauty.com. I also have mtblm which is fitness and mountain biking and lastly a new venture spillinglifetea which is lifestyle based.
WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I was suffering from depression and anxiety. I needed an outlet for my creative side and I love to right. Even though I was told I would never do anything creative as I have dyslexia. I excelled at English at school and was the first person in Scotland to take spoken English higher.
HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?
Yes I started with a beauty focus. As I have grown I am more fitness and lifestyle focused.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
Trying to explain my job to an elderly lady. A lot of people pay you for talking online.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
When the Moz DA algorithm changed and took my score with it.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW BLOGGER STARTING OUT?
Be yourself. You are worth it and do what makes you happy.
WHAT SURPRISED YOU ABOUT BLOGGING THAT YOU DID NOT REALISE BEFORE YOU STARTED?
I could make this my job. I am a full time blogger.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
mountain bike. When ever I can be in the mountains I will be.
IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?
Tell my husband to hand his notice in. Then buy a huge house I can fill with rescue dogs.
WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?
Don’t hate on me but I don’t have one. I blog for me and I am happy doing that.
