We were blessed to have a few minutes with Becky recently as she took part in the following Q&A.
Q: What are your favorite topics to blog about??
A: My favorite topics to blog about are positive parenting, travel with kids, recipes, quotes, fashion & reviews. Cuddle Fairy’s motto is: positivity around every corner & that’s what my blog is all about!
Q: How long have you had your blog?
A: I started Cuddle Fairy five months ago.
Q: What’s the most interesting reader interaction you’ve ever had?
A: I had a reader leave a very personal comment on one of my posts. I was humbled by her comment & also proud that my words had meant something to someone.
Q: What prompted you to get started with blogging?
A: I was late to join social media. Last year I opened a Facebook account & then a Twitter account. I really enjoy engaging with people from all over the world on Twitter. I was sharing positive quotes & that’s what made me think of starting a blog. Then, Cuddle Fairy was born!
Q: What do you like most about blogging?
A: I love interacting with people all over the world. I have made some amazing friends through blogging & get to communicate with other bloggers, brands & new people everyday.
Q: What advice would you give to an aspiring blogger?
A: Don’t be shy about putting yourself out there into the blogging community. Follow bloggers on Twitter, join linky parties & blogging groups. Other bloggers have been so helpful & I’m always happy to pass advice onto others. So if you need any help, just ask someone. It’s an amazing community.
Q: Which post have you had the most fun writing?
A: My Updated Wardrobe. I fell into the habit of wearing hoodies & tracksuit trousers around the house. I have been wanting to go shopping for new clothes but kept waiting to lose weight or for this or that to happen. I ended up stumbling onto some amazing sales a couple weeks ago & started trying on clothes. Everything fit - it was a miracle. I bought new tops & cardigans to go with leggings. I’m still comfortable during the day but look & feel much better. I was really thrilled with the response my post received & happy to know I wasn’t the only mom who got stuck in a fashion rut.
Q: What is the biggest challenge to being a blogger?
A: Balancing blogging & family life. I could easily sit & blog all day. When I say blog I mean write, comment on other blogs, reply to comments on my blog & hop between my social media platforms. Or, I could easily spend the whole day with the family. I mostly blog when the kids are at school or asleep. I keep the weekends for playing with the kids. I’m working on making a blogging schedule now.
Q: Who are some of your blogging inspirations?
To name a few, I have so many amazing bloggers that inspire me!
Q: Final Thoughts
A: I’m a wife & stay at home mom to 3 kiddies. Starting my blog has changed my life! I had little to no adult interaction day to day before blogging. Now, I have a voice outside of being mom, a creative outlet, interactions with new people everyday, made new friends & I look forward to the new opportunities that come each day.
