Meet The Blogger – Tiney

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

Tiney

TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?

Hey I’m Tiney from GrowingClan

WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?

After our first miscarriage, I went online looking for others and struggled to find people and I wanted to share my journey through motherhood to Baby bear but was unsure but with Daddy bears support (him basically setting it all up for me) I took the leap and started.

HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?

It has become a lot more about secondary infertility stuff as we have gotten deeper into our TTC journey.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

I have to say meeting other bloggers has been so much fun.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?

Having my blog crash and we couldn’t figure out what had happened or if I had lost everything (before I backed everything up).

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

Just take the plunge, believe in yourself and stay true to what you want to write about.

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

The affect it can have on other. I never actually thought I would have helped so many people already who are going through either a loss or TTC.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?

I don’t get much spare time with the boys, house, now my job but when I do I love to attend my local Zumba class or just run myself a hot bath with a glass of wine and just relax.

IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?

Pay off our mortgage and buy another property for my parents to live in. They rent in Essex so would love them to not have to worry about rent and to be closer to us.

WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?

If I had to pick one, I love Emma from emmareed.net. She is so talented and her instagram stories always have me in stitches and Ofcourse she has the cutest 2 boys.

    As someone who recently jumped back into blogging, I found her interview very informative! I did exactly what she advised about starting out in blogging, and I really enjoy it!

      As someone who has struggled with TTC I think Tiney is so brave sharing about loss and TTC struggles. It’s amazing that a blog can be an outlet for hard times and be helpful to those in the same situation.
