Saturday Spotlight - Q&A // Emily And Indiana

Q1: A bit about yourself and children?

Hey I'm Emily. I'm 21 and a first time mummy to a cheeky monkey called Indiana who is 10 months old. She was born on the 26th November 2013 weighing 8lbs 4oz and has turned our world upside down, in a good way of course! We live in Kent with my fiance, and Indiana's daddy Jack.

Q2: A bit about your blog?

I blog at I write about all things baby, lifestyle and will soon be adding a wedding series to the blog, which is so exciting!

Q3: When and why did you start blogging?

I started blogging back in February to document Indiana's progress and my life as a mummy. It was initially an add on to my YouTube Channel which I started when I was pregnant with Indiana. I now run them side by side as a way of preserving memories and as a space to write down my thoughts about life as a first time mummy.

Q4: What do you like writing about? Maybe your top 5 favourite things to write about?

Obviously I love writing about being a mummy the most. Indiana is my inspiration and I love writing her updates, outfit posts and things like that. I also love writing about days out, and giving reviews on things I think will help those who read my blog.

Q5: Where do you get your inspiration for posts from?

Daily life gives me most of my inspiration. Spending my days with Indie gives me loads of ideas to share with you about her. I also find that sometimes I can just be in bed trying to get to sleep when an idea will just pop into my head (I always note them down now, otherwise I just forget in the morning haha).

Q6: What was your first blog post about?

My first blog post was a little introduction to my blog and a little hello from me. My first proper post was my labour and delivery story!

Q7: What do you find toughest about blogging?

Finding time to sit down and do it! I'm working part time, being a mummy, editing for Youtube and writing blog posts, so I'm pretty busy haha.

Q8: What do you look for in someone else's blog?

I love reading other blogs, mummy blogs are my favourite. I'm more drawn to posts with good quality pictures and a writing style that's chatty and personal. I always find I follow a blog if a post has made me laugh too!

Q9: What advice would you give to your fellow bloggers?

Don't worry if you don't have time to blog! I'd much rather read a post that's had some time and thought put into it, than something that's been thrown together. You can really tell the difference I think.

Q10: Recommend three other blogs you're currently loving?

I love far too many but if I had to choose I'd pick: Loved By MummyLamb & Bear and The Knott Bump & Us

Q11: What is your favourite thing about blogging?

I love writing down the things to preserve the memories. But my favourite thing about blogging is being about to be part of the community. Everyone is so lovely, and there's always someone there whether you need a chat, or want some support.

Q12: Where can we find you?
