Tell us a bit about yourself and your blog
Hello! My name is Laura and my blog is Em & Me. I’m a first time mum to my baby girl Emily. I blog all about first time motherhood, play based learning and our family days out.
How long have you been blogging?
I’ve been blogging since March 2017 on this blog but over the years I’ve had a few different ones. This is the one that I’ve stuck at and enjoyed the most.
What or who inspired you to create your blog?
Since I became pregnant I knew I wanted to blog. As I mentioned, I’ve had a few over the years but never really found my ‘niche’. It took me a while to pluck up the courage (a year) but I thought of a name, got writing and here I am!
What’s your favourite thing about running your blog?
My favourite thing has got to be all the friends I’ve made. I know that’s a little cliché but Amy of Becoming Mumsy (www.becomingmumsy.com) and Maisie of Love, Maisie (lovemaisie.com) have become some of my closest friends and we talk every single day. They are my absolute rocks and I don’t think I could get through the day without them. That’s definitely my favourite thing!
How do you stay motivated?
I think that because there’s always something new to write about, I don’t lose motivation that often. But when I feel like I’m losing it, I do some blog admin or read other blogs. There’s always something to be getting on with if you don’t feel like writing. I particularly love making pins!
What’s been the most challenging part of your blogging journey to date?
I think the biggest challenge was just getting the courage to start! Other than that I can’t really think of anything.
Tell us about your favourite blog post
My favourite blog post so far has to be either my breastfeeding journey or my posts about play based learning. My breastfeeding journey took a lot for me to publish because I spoke about some of the difficulties I faced however my activity based posts are some of the most fun. I love watching my girl learn and play and creative messy play is our favourite!
Describe your blog in four words
All things baby, play, motherhood and life!
What are your future hopes and dreams for your blog?
I think I would just like to continue writing and make something of it. There are some brands I would really like to work with so I hope that happens!
