Blog Love #1
I have been blogging a while now, and I adore it- it is my creative outlet- I love documenting the life of my little girl, I have a passion for writing and taking photos, and I love the fact that I am learning and being inspired by lots of other blogs. There are so many different types out there- funny ones, cute ones, photography ones, silly ones- I read so many now and they are all so different.
With that in mind, I have decided to start a new feature on my blog called 'Blog Love.' Blog Love is exactly what it means, I have decided to dedicate a post a fortnight to one of my favourite bloggers or a new blogger whose blog I have started reading and love. After all one massive part of blogging is reading and learning from others, and sharing the love. Hopefully after reading the post and seeing the little interview I have compiled, it might make you hop on over and take a read yourself.
So without further ado I bring you to my first 'Blog Love' and this time it is the turn of.....
The owner of the rather lovely 'Dear Beautiful Boy' is Lucy and she has been blogging for seven months. She certainly writes one of my favourite blogs of all time. I found Lucy's blog because she started commenting on my posts- I clicked on one of her comments and was soon completely addicted to her lovely little space on the web. Dear Beautiful Boy chronicles the life of her absolutely gorgeous son. (and also Mad's future husband!) What strikes me most about Dear Beautiful Boy is how beautiful it is- not only is Lucy a very good photographer, she also writes in such a lovely and almost poetic way.
I have been lucky to meet Lucy a few times now, with more times planned in the future, and I can safely say she is now a 'real life' friend as well as a 'blog friend.' I can assure you that she is just as lovely in real life as she is on her blog- which is of course refreshing to see.
Here is a little bit more about her...
Tell us a little about your blog-
My blog started off as a record of everything that my baby was getting up too. But since then, its grown a lot. So while I still dedicate a lot of posts to him, there is a lot more talk about my life in general; my relationship, my home life and my love of photography.
What do you love about blogging?
I love that it is something that is all mine. You can't undervalue that when you are a new mummy and everything revolves around your baby. I love that it gives me a creative outlet and has ignited a passion for writing and for taking photographs which I thought I had lost at college. I also love the community of lovely people that it has introduced me to, those people keep me sane some days when all I've done all day is change nappies and listen to baby talk.
What blogs are you loving at the moment?
I love Dear Baby blog which I only found quite recently but adore. I love Holding On To The Little Things, it's just so full of prettiness. I'm rather loving Harper's Happenings too.I also love Young House Love which I've followed for years. And A Beach Cottage, which I've also been following for years and which makes me want to move to the beach.
What inspires you?
What doesn't inspire me? Music, books, art, photography, life, love, family. But more specifically, blogs inspire me all the time. And Pinterest!
What five things couldn't you live without?
My beautiful boy, my husband, my little black cat, my little grey cat and my camera.
What is your best post?
If you have a spare minute and haven't visited Dear Beautiful Boy before, take a look, I am sure you will love it as much as I do.
In the meantime if you think I haven't read your blog before- let me know and I will be sure to check out. Who knows who I will feature next? After all blogging is all about sharing the love!
