Interview with a blogger...KT INNES♡

Wednesday, 11 October 2017

Hi guys! This is the second week of my Interview a Blogger series and today I'm interviewing the lovely Katie who has such a unique writing style that makes you want to read more!

Tell me and my readers a bit about your blog and what makes you different?

Hi there! My blog, Life With Ktkinnes, started out as a place for me to feel like I was talking and someone somewhere was listening. From that, it's grown to be a whole mix of things I love, recipes and tips, reviews, and some very rambly posts where I just chat away to everyone. Some have described me as a "diary-style" blogger, which I find rather cool and different, especially when I've never heard of anyone else's blog being described this way!

How did you first get into blogging?

I was lying in bed one night, reading about ways to make money alongside discovering new hobbies. Now before anyone jumps down my throat, I found it a bit ridiculous that people would start blogging just to get free stuff or make money, but it did make me realise that blogging would introduce me to a new world of people willing to be my friend! Let's just say I haven't been disappointed.

What do you do outside of blogging?

Outside blogging, I love to cook, clean, sing, read, and watch TV.  If I don't have my phone/laptop on me, I'll either be cooking, eating, or discovering a whole new world through yet another book! Apart from all that, I also love spending time with my friends, and now that I'm finished university I am looking for a job! Not as easy as it seems...

What bloggers inspire you?

One blogger who really inspires me is Jordanne from www.thelifeofaglasgowgirl.co.uk . Jordanne juggles blogging with raising her son, keeping the house together, and has just started a full time course in college - and I have no idea how she manages it! Her posts are amazing, and I love waking up to see a new post has gone live.

How do you motivate yourself to blog?

I join in Twitter chats for my inspiration, then plonk myself down on the sofa or at my desk, flick on a film or the next episode of whatever I am currently addicted to, and just find the words flowing. I'm not one of those people who need silence to blog/work. In fact, the more noise the better! An example of this would be I am answering these questions while watching The West Wing and listening to the podcast The West Wing Weekly!

What is your greatest achievement in regards to blogging?

I think my greatest achievement in regards to blogging is the fact I'm still here. We all love to see our numbers increasing whether it's followers, views, subscribers or whatever, but it takes a lot of determination to keep going when these numbers don't rise as frequently as they once did. That's why I'm proud to still be blogging, 3 and a half years after I started. Am I allowed another? Last year, I held my first giveaway on my blog. It was a Christmas themed one to go along with my blogmas posts, and next thing I knew someone had linked to my giveaway on the money saving expert website! I actually was so proud of myself at that moment.

I absolutely love Katie's blog and I know you will too. You can also find her other social media here: Blog - www.lifewithktkinnes.com
