I have an exciting new series for you called All about the Blogger! Each month I am going to introduce you to a fellow blogger so you can enjoy reading some of the other fab blogs out there. Click the links at the bottom of this guest post to explore their blog and social media accounts.
I'm Madeline and my blog is This Glorious Life. It's a family lifestyle blog with a side of psychology, and I write about all sorts of things related to parenting and family life and how we can use psychology to our advantage to get the most out of life.
Q1. How would your best friend describe you? (not sure then ask them)
Stubborn and silly. And hopefully kind.
Q2. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
Aside from the community that is generally so supportive and helpful, I love how it's pushed me to be more intentional and consistent with taking photos of my family, and making sure I'm in enough photos too.
Q3. If you could change anything about blogging, what would it be?
The games some people play to build their social media following. I really don't like it when someone follows you, just to get you to follow them back, only to unfollow you again a few days later. I know how hard it is to grow a decent following on social media but this tactic just feels mean to me.
Q4. If you were invited to a Blogger’s Cocktail Party, which three bloggers would you invite and why?
This is such a hard question to answer! There are so many amazing bloggers that I would love to actually meet in person, and have a few cocktails with. Katy from Hot Pink Wellingtons, Lucy from Mrs H's Favourite Things and Bridget from Bridie by the sea would definitely be on my list though as they just seem so lovely and it would be lovely to properly chat with them in real life
Q5. What is the best blogging tip you have been given?
To spend at least as much time promoting your content as you do writing it in the first place. It's something I'm still working on to be honest, but it's great advice showing the point that blogging isn't just a case of 'if you build it they will come', you have to shout a bit and let people know you're there.
Q6. When you aren’t blogging, where is your favourite place to visit for a day out?
I love a simple day out at the beach, either Swansea bay or one of the gorgeous beaches on Gower.
Q7. Tell us about your guilty pleasure. It could be food, drink, a TV programme or your favourite band.
I don't really have any guilty pleasures, I'm quite happy to admit that I'm really not very cool! I love watching things I should probably now be too grown up to enjoy, like Dawson's Creek and Buffy, and I'm still a big fan of America's next top model.
Q8. If you knew you were going to be marooned on a desert island and could take 3 luxury items with you, what would they be?
Coffee, a book (maybe the Time Traveller's Wife) and a toothbrush.
Q9. What was the last good book you read?
I'm really behind the crowd but I'm reading A Game of Thrones at the moment, and really enjoying it.
Q10. Describe your perfect date night?
It would be really laid back. Food and a few drinks out somewhere not too fancy, then head to the beach for a stroll and maybe a fire if it's chilly out!
