Mum blogger – an interview with Katrina

Today I meet mum blogger Katrina who shares the highs and lows of her blogging to date.

Mum Blogger


Why did you start to blog?

I started to blog when I had my son as a way to vent and moan and also boast and brag without bothering my friends daily who probably didn’t care.

How did you feel when you started blogging?

I felt proud of my son and my achievements of being a mother and wanted to shout about it.

How do you feel about blogging today?
I love blogging but I sometimes feel I need a rocket up my bum to get motivated.
What is your proudest achievement related to blogging?
Working with amazing brands that I could never of dreamed of working with.
What is the most exciting event you have attended as a blogger?
I haven’t attended any yet it’s a goal for 2018 though!
Do you monetize your blog and, if so, how?
I do have it linked to Adsense but have never made any money for the placements of the ads,
What do you find most challenging about blogging?
Being consistent with uploads is hard to do.
What surprised you most about blogging?
The amazing people you meet along the way. If someone would of told me this whole new network of friends and people I would have done it sooner.
How do you balance blogging and family life?
I only blog when my son is asleep to keep the family time sacred.
What would lead to you giving up blogging?
If people stopped reading my content. That would be heartbreaking and make me think what’s the point.
What is your top tip for a new or inexperienced blogger?
Go with your gut. If you want to post something do it. Everyone has opinions and blogging allows us to share ours.
Is there anything else you would like to share?

That I’m grateful for Kate and the work she does for the blogging world and Facebook groups she really opens up doors and opportunities.

  1. There are some lovely bloggers out there. I find the constant uploading a bit difficult too, that and the self promotion I find that a bit tricky but am getting better… good luck with the conferences next year, I am yet to make one too. Thank you for joining us at #familyfun and have a lovely Christmas xx

  2. Great interview and sentiments that so many bloggers will recognise. I had no idea what I was doing when I started, and certainly didn’t know how many supportive people I would meet along the way but I didn’t realise how time consuming it can be either. This is a great piece to have shared on #MMLInky – thanks Katrina & Kate x

  3. I have learned that marketing and promoting your blog is more important that writing new posts. I have scheduled post days, and then there are days I only market and build my social media accounts.
