Bearded Backchat with Tammy from Being a Butterfly
Bearded Backchat is a chance for me to interview PR people and fellow bloggers. This week it’s Tammy from Being a Butterfly. Tammy is fairly new to blogging, and I think needs some love from fellow bloggers in order to get writing again! This interview took place a couple of months ago not long after Tammy was starting a blog.
Who are you?
What is your “day job”?
I have my own bookkeeping business, I am a Younique and Magnetix Presenter, but ultimately I want to be a blogger
What is your blog called and where can we find it?
Being a Butterfly and it’s at http://beingabutterfly.co.uk/
What’s your blog about?
It’s about motivation people, showing them that they are amazing and they can be whoever they want to be.
Why did you start blogging?
I want to motivate the world and share my motivation and positivity with everyone who wants it. I want to show people that life is great, that they are great but it is also what you make it.
Why do you still blog?
Because I love it, I love reading the comments from people who have read my blog and I love seeing how many people I have reached and hopefully given them something that can help them shine and be amazing.
How has blogging changed since you started?
I only started a few weeks ago, so it hasn’t changed much!
Would you count your blog as a job or something fun to do in your spare time?
At the moment it is something fun, HOWEVER I am determined to make it my full-time job because I love blogging.
Where do you get the inspiration to write a blog post?
My life, me friends, my son and my family.
If you could recommend three other blogs to read, what three would you recommend and why?
Oh gosh, I can’t decide on just three, there are so many out there that are amazing. What I don’t like is when you read a blog think, you’ve been paid to write that or recommend that, and that puts me off.
Blogging has got to be from the heart, your audience is liking for your opinion not what you are being paid to write.
What is the single best thing that has come about as a result of your blog?
The feedback, it means I have made a difference
What would be your perfect blog post?
I would love to meet Tony Robinson and write a blog about how motivational he is.
What can you recommend to other bloggers to increase the traffic to their sites?
Be consistent, share you page as much as you can.
Which brands do you enjoy working with?
I don’t work with brands, I just work on feeling and emotions.
Everyone has that one company that they have always wanted to work with but have never quite been able to. Who is yours?
What is your own personal favourite post on your site?
This was the easiest blog I have ever written, it took 15 minutes and I received amazing feedback. I really felt it touched people and gave them something.
Whose blog would you love to be featured on or write a guest post for?
Anyone motivational, Maxine Harley and Psychologies Magazine.
Lastly, if you were to interview another blogger, what question would you ask that I haven’t asked here?…
what’s the one piece of advice you wish you received when you first started out as a blogger?
… And what is your answer to that question?
Because let’s face it, if you have a good question, you’ll probably have a good answer!
Thanks for taking part!
