Meet Clare From Freddies Mummy UK #AllAboutTheBlogger
Hi my name is Clare and I blog over at Freddies Mummy UK. My niche would be parenting, travel and lifestyle. But basically I blog about our lives and things that impact us as a family. I am a relatively new blogger only starting in October 2017, and only concentrating on it since January 2018 when I went self hosted. I live with my husband and my 8 year old son in a small village in Leicestershire.
Q1. How would your best friend describe you?
She would describe me as a bad influence (we often get a little tipsy, which apparently is my fault!!!).
Q2. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
I can work to my own schedule (within reason) and I get to be there for my family.
Q3. If you could change anything about blogging, what would it be?
Peoples perception, this is the hardest thing for me. I often lie about what I do to avoid funny looks.
Q4. If you were invited to a Blogger’s Cocktail Party, which three bloggers would you invite and why?
I am still new to the blogging world so don’t actually have any “friends” but from those I have interacted with, Lynn James from Mrs Mummy Penny as we have similar backgrounds before blogging and she is really switched on. To be honest everyone I have come across in the blogging world is lovely, so anyone and everyone who likes a drink!!!
Q5. What is the best blogging tip you have been given?
Focus on Pinterest. I have never used it personally but I get most of my social media traffic from there now.
Q6. When you aren’t blogging, where is your favourite place to visit for a day out?
Oh God I am always blogging at the minute! But I love visiting London for the theatre.
Q7. Tell us about your guilty pleasure. It could be food, drink, a TV programme or your favourite band.
I love watching box sets, currently watching Billions and I love it!
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?
Oh God this is hard, but it would have to be mascara and my Giorgio Armani foundation plus my phone (so I could take loads of amazing photos and contact the outside world!)
Q9. What was the last good book you read?
Confession time, I don’t actually read books. I just don’t have time (I know rubbish excuse)
Q10. Describe your perfect date night?
Going to the theatre or opera with my lovely hubby.
