Interview a Blogger, Lady Writes | Blog Series

Hello Again!!

Thanks for coming back to the Interview a Blogger series. Today's blogger is the lovely Chloe from Lady Writes!! Let's get to know her better!

1. Tell us something about yourself and your blog?

Well not everyone knows this but Lady Writes started last year as an anonymous dating blog - not the lifestyle blog that it is now! I wanted to document my hilarious dates as I slowly re-entered the dating world and it was a lot of fun (you can still find some of my 'rate a date' type posts in the archives!) But I quickly realised I didn't want to be limited to just one topic, so I relaunched and Lady Writes, as it is now, was born.

2. How did you get into blogging? Did someone else inspire you?

I started blogging 5 years ago and had a blog for the first three years of my sons life, but it was more geared in the mummy-blog arena but for various reasons I gave it up and took a break for a year. My day job as been specialised in Digital Marketing and Social Media for the last six years too, so that's another reason I got in to it personally as well as professionally.

3. What does blogging mean to you and why?

As a single mummy, childcare can be difficult at times so I don't get to just go out for a drink or meal with my friends whenever I like. Blogging has allowed me to meet some amazing friends who I can chat to on Twitter etc and interact with while I'm at home. So it's given me a virtual social life too which means so much! Plus it's my little corner of the internet, I invest my time heavily in it and I'm proud of it so it means the absolute world to me.

4. I personally have almost stopped blogging so, What keeps you motivated?

I think it's more that I love to write - that keeps me motivated. Plus I'm a right chatterbox so I've always got something to say! I think we all struggle with blogging-motivation at times, but when I get like that I just don't force myself to write - even if it means the blog goes a few days without a new post. Forcing it makes me less motivated.

5. Name some (one,two or three) of your favourite bloggers and tell us why they’re your favourite?

 I can't list only two or three! I have so many that I love to read and I'm always finding interesting posts through Twitter that take me to amazing new bloggers as well - so my list is always growing. I can't limit it to a couple!

6. What do you do when you’re not blogging?

Between working, blogging, doing my mummy-thing I've got family locally who I'm close to and friends I adore so I love to spend time with them. I'm also massively into scrapbooking and planners so I'll quite often spend hours doing that too.

7. What are you most proud of when it comes to your blog?

 I'm proud that people like it. I love to know that I write things people want to read, so every piece of feedback or interaction makes me so proud. I'm also really proud to be up for a UK Blog Award this year too!

8. Everyone has a favourite and a least favourite post, what are yours?

My favourite post - ahh man thats tough! I really enjoyed writing my 'If I Was Prime Minister' post and 'Facts About Me' and then recently I wrote 'The single Girls Guide to Netflix & Chill' which was one of my most successful I guess my favourites are the fun ones! My least favourite? Hmmm now that would be telling!

9. As I’m mainly a beauty blogger I feel like I have to ask at least one beauty question so: If you could only use one kind of beauty product what would it be and why?

Foundation, without a doubt. Foundation is the base for all other make-up, without it, what's the point? But please don't make me only ever wear just one item!

10. What would you say to someone who aspires to become a blogger?

Do it! Get into it, start somewhere and see where you end up - the journey is the fun bit!
Thanks to Chloe for taking part, I absolutely love your answers and you can tell that you love writing because you're so good at it!!

Come back next Saturday to see who the next blogger is.
