Five Among Friends: Get to Know Me.

Welcome to a new feature, Five Among Friends, where myself & some of my closest blogging friends will be linking up for a a series of Q & A's once every month.

We'd love to see your answers to the questions too - Just post your Q & A on your blog and then put your link in the Linky below and we'll be sure to check them out! Don't forget to check out other peoples answers too!

This week's theme is Getting To Know You.....

This week's questions were written by Hayley at Sparkles & Stretchmarks....

The Questions

1) Describe yourself in 5 words

Kind-hearted, affectionate, introvert, over-analyser & crazy (in a good kinda way ;)..)

2) Why did you decide to start blogging?

I would watch other people on youTube (Shaytards, The Sacconne Jolys' etc etc) and admire the fact that they were documenting their life through the Internet. I was attracted to the thought of in a years time you could look back at what you we're doing the same day a year later. I tried to start making videos but it wasn't for me. I then noticed some of these youTubers had blogs and realised that I was much better at writing a blog then making videos.. and the rest is history. 

3) How did you choose the name of your blog and why?

I choose Bump to Baby because I was pregnant with Ethan when I started it. I suppose I thought my blog was primarily going to stay about parenting but it's branched out into so much more than that. It doesn't really fall into a category even though you'd kind of expect it from it's blog title. I liked to blog about anything and everything. :)

4) Tell us something about yourself that you think might surprise us!

I use to be adamant that I never wanted to be a Mum. Thank God I changed my mind!
Oh and here's a bonus answer for you... I suffer with anxiety.. but I'm working on it!

5) What is your favourite and least favourite thing about blogging?

I love so much about blogging
.. I can't just name one thing. I love writing something personal and then getting comments from other people who've read it and enjoyed what I've wrote. I love taking photographs and learning how to use my camera. I love finding other blogs that I fall in love with reading and then make friends with the writers. I love documenting my life. I love working with brands and being lucky enough to have the opportunity to review some lovely things. I love so much about writing a blog.

My least favourite thing is probably when I get writers block! Or when I get frustrated with HTML and spend hours trying to do something and it just doesn't happen.

  4. I love your blog name! Even though you blog about other things, its so fitting - and you could always add" and beyond!" as a tagline when he gets older lol!

    I`ve never heard of the Shaytards, you turned me on to the Saccone Jolys and now I`m hooked so I need to look the Shaytards up! :D

  5. It is so frustrating when you can't think of what to write! Even though your blog is about more, I think Your title is great :)
