A Q&A Blogger Tag

Helena from Queen of Collage gave me a question and answer blogger tag the other day.  I don’t normally do these kind of tags but I really liked her questions so I figured why not!  It’s only a bit of fun after all.  I first met Helena through a variety of link ups and we have both always been drawn to a similar blog subject.  Geocaching to name drop one thing!

Let’s get on and answer Helena’s questions and my answers:

What made you start blogging?

Blogging is something I’ve done since 2002 but it’s not something that I’ve stuck with. Two Tiny Hands was One back in August but I didn’t get addicted to blogging until last February this year.   It’s given me a new lease of life and a like-minded virtual friendship circle I could never have imagined. I can’t wait to meet them and their kids one day.

Do you think that becoming a mum has changed you?

Yes definitely. Being a Mum is something I always wanted and I’m beyond happy having achieved it.  I love my little family and my son.  I think it’s great!  I have always been fairly relaxed in life and I think that I am still quite relaxed about things now.  So in that sense I’ve not changed!

How many children have you got?

I have the one child who we affectionately call the Robot on this blog.  If you search hard enough there are two blogs I’ve written that have his real name in!! No clues, sorry!

My Inspiration

Where do you get your inspiration from?

A few places really. Real life is the top answer. I like to write about our adventures as a family so quite a lot is about our trips and holidays. The other is from my fellow bloggers and friends. Not plagiarism I might add, stealing other people work is naughty!  The parenting blogger world is full of talented individuals that can have many different takes on things.  There is always some crossover of topics.

When do you like to write your posts?

Whenever I get the chance!!  Dave is really understanding and knows which parts of the blogging week are difficult so let’s me go into my blog world for the evening sometimes!

Are you organised or creatively messy?

Organised. Got to be. I run a linky on my blog and get involved in a variety of other blogging challenges.  The other is #FamilyFun who I host with Sarah from TammyMum.com, this is for everyone.  We always like to have new bloggers come and join us.  I’d love to see you!

Do you like to dunk your biscuits in your tea?

Got to dunk!  Just to the optimum amount of time so that the biscuit doesn’t fall off into the tea.

What is your favourite piece of music?

Good question!  One I find impossible to answer.  Once upon a time in my older youth I’d have said Savage Garden – To the Moon and Back.  Now my music taste has changed so much that I often just surf the radio channels and listen to whatever is on.

What is your favourite destination and have you been there?

Favourite destination is a biggy!  To be honest as long as my family is with me everywhere is a favourite destination. Cheesy I know!  The most favourite place I’ve been with them though is up to Scotland and on to the Islands along the west coast.  They are beautiful and I really hope that we will explore Scotland for many more years to come.

Will you be having a handmade Christmas (ie. make the Christmas decor and hampers) or not?

Not quite decorations or hampers but I certainly won’t be having a crazy shop bought Christmas either.  We like to keep it simple and keep it cheap.  I make a mean mince-pie (not evil mean) so I’ve been known to hand these out as presents in the past.


Thank you Helena for these great questions… Now it’s my turn.

I’m going to tag…

  2. I love these types of posts, always a lovely way to learn a little more about the blogger. I used to love Savage Garden in my youth. But much like you I tend to just listen to what is on the radio. I started my blog in August 2015 but I didn’t really get in to it properly until earlier this year. I wish the bug had hit me sooner because now I can’t get enough of it. It took me a while to feel confident with my ‘voice’ though so perhaps I needed to ease myself into it.

  3. I love reading blogger tags like this, it’s such a great way to learn a bit more! I have blogged on and off since 2013 but I restarted a blog in May this year and really caught the bug hard! I love it! Before it was just a private blog and I never got involved in any communities! #fortheloveofBLOG

  4. These things are always nice to learn more about people. Reassuring to know you have been blogging a long time and have only really got the bug more recently. I see to have gone a bit off the boil on mine and hoping to find the time/motivation to get back on it! #fortheloveofBLOG

      It’s on the list of places to back to next year. I’ll have to fit Glasgow or at least close by onto our adgenda without Dave realising! lol… Not that he’d mind of course!

  6. I love reading posts like this, it’s so nice to know more about the person behind the blog. I’m very envious of your trips and adventures. I have no idea if my mince pies are any good or not as I don’t ever eat them (can’t stand them).
    Lovely to ‘meet’ you and will definitely join in Family Fun at some point.
