Why do you write about money?
I love to share ways mums can make money from home around caring for their children.
I never even knew it was possible when I had my first child and there are so many opportunities for mums to have a more flexible career and raise their children at the same time. The choice isn’t just to be a SAHM or a full time go out to work mum.
There are lots of other ways to earn to and I want to share what I do and also what other bloggers do. I hope it will inspire those who are considering starting a blog or business and give them the motivation to go for it!
How did you start blogging?
It was originally a business blog alongside my online fashion boutique! It was never meant to be a blog.
I was trying to find a way to get more traffic to my store and kept reading the same advice – start a blog! It quite quickly changed into a lifestyle blog and now it has taken over!
I absolutely love blogging so I’m pleased I randomly found my passion through my first business idea.
What’s your most popular post and why?
My most popular post from my money section is Nutriseed Review and £5 Off Discount Code, because everyone must love a great discount voucher! I
t’s for my favourite wholefood ingredients company online so it’s amazing to know lots of other people are enjoying healthy treats and getting a discount too.
What’s your favourite post you’ve written, and why?
One of my recent favourites is the 3 things having children has taught me to appreciate as without my children I’d never have been inspired to make my own money or start my own business. They definitely gave me the confidence to do so.
If I’d not have had them I expect I’d still be in my old job and miserable!
What’s your number one money tip?
If you’re self employed try paying yourself a ‘wage’ once per month.
I find it much easier to manage my money this way and use a spreadsheet to work out our household income and outgoings every month. When we used my income as and when it came in, we found it just disappeared, probably on a lot of treats or extra unnecessary food shopping, and we never really felt like I had a proper wage.
What’s your top blogging tip?
I have three blogging mottoes!
- Be inspired, but do not copy
- Admire others, but never compare
- Blog about what YOU want to
