#MeetTheFamily…Mummy in a tutu

#MeetTheFamily…Mummy in a tutu

Hello there and welcome to the latest instalment of my series #MeetTheFamily. It is a spin off from our linky #FamilyFun. You may know that #FamilyFun is a linky where you can link up any blog post with the idea of it being a fun linky where you share your posts, comments and love with your blogging family. This post is all about getting to know our blogging family a bit better. So without further ado I will introduce you to this weeks member:

Mummy in a Tutu 

Mummy in a Tutu is the brain child of the truly amazing Katie. Words cannot express the gratitude I have toward this lovely lady, she has been a major part in my blogging journey so far and I owe her so much. I first met Katie when she wrote a tongue and cheek post Wanted: Blogger seeks personal tribe. We got talking together with a few other lovely ladies and what started off as a few bloggers chatting about blogging has turned into a whole Tribe with over 100 members. Katie has become more than a fellow blogger and is now a friend to me. She write a popular, emotive and gripping blog that I urge you to check out.  So Katie over to you…

Katie (mummy in a tut) and Alyssa

  1.  Tell us a little bit about yourself, who you are, your blog and what we can expect from your blog?
    Okay, my name is Katie and I write the Parenting, Lifestyle and Food Blog, “Mummy in a Tutu” as well as play the role of mummy to my gorgeous little bubba, Alyssa. My blog talks about anything and everything I experience from heartbreak to milestone moments in my life as a mum and as just me. There are also a few reviews thrown in for good measure and I also run two linkies – #ablogginggoodtime on a Thursday and #FoodieFriday on a Sunday… just joking it is what it says on the tin and on a Friday.
  1. When your not blogging, how do you fill your time – are you a working parent, SAHP, WAHP? When your not working what do you like to do for fun?
    I am a WAHM and blogging is my career – I am very fortunate and this has only happened in the last few months. In my downtime (ha ha ha every mummy ever just laughed then) I enjoy having a coffee with friends or watching a good series like GBBO or I am a little addicted to the TV channel TLC and enjoy the mostly American shenanigans on there!
  1. How long have you been blogging and what is your favourite and least favourite thing about it?
    I have been blogging for 10 months now and my favourite thing about it has to be the comments I receive – to know that I am not alone and someone else is going through or has gone through the same thing but also to know that I am helping other people too. The worst thing is also the comments but a different type – no matter who you are you will never please everyone and there will always be trolls!
  1. If you could pass on a piece of advice to a newbie blogger what would it be?
    Decide what your blog is for and then stick to that for a while – if it is for you then make it for you and don’t go chasing stats. If it is as an option to turn it into a professional piece then go hard or go home because there are hundreds of thousands of blogs out there!
  1. If money were no issue, and you could tick one thing off your bucket list what would it be and why?
    It would be to go and spend a few weeks in America in varying places – I am desperate to visit New York and LA . It is just one of those things I so desperately want to do – if money was really no object id probably end up moving there… I like to coupon!
  1. Can you share some love and tell us what blogs you are enjoying at the moment and that you would recommend?
    Okay, blogs I absolutely adore (apart from Two Tiny Hands and TammyMum Obviously) have to be Adventures with J – I love seeing what J has been up to and like the heartfelt way in which Laura writes.
    Babies, Biscuits and Booze – this blog is so down to earth and more often than not has such a funny charm to it.
    Diary of An Imperfect Mum – Catie is my blogging bestie and I adore her blog. It pulls at every heart string I have and I think she is a gorgeous writer.
    Finally, The Parenting Jungle – some of the things this lady shares are so brave and I can almost hear a cry for help or affection coming from beneath her posts at time that make me want to keep returning to let her know someone is listening.

    What a lovely idea! And I love Katie too! I agree with her about writing about what you like. Otherwise, you write rubbish… #FamilyFun

    Ahhh love this. Katie is such a fab and supportive blogger. Great choices of blogs from Katie too :-) #FamilyFun

    Hellooo Katie! You should definitely visit NY if you get a chance, not that I’m biased (okay, I’m totally biased). #familyfun

    I really needed to read the part about sticking with it and being true to the fell of your blog today. I have recently had some work turned down and am starting to feel that discouragement… I just need to figure out how to make enough to feed my local shopping market addiction.

    Really enjoy this post and getting to know my ‘friends’, you may not have known that but you are my friends. Lol. Just like Katie I love TLC. Some of the things they come up with filming is beyond me. Thanks for another great post! #familyfun

    Yay hi Katie ❤️ Thank you so much for mentioning me as a fave blogger, I am blushing at your kind words. I think it’s wonderful how you’ve made blogging into a career and you inspire us all. I did chuckle at you wanting to move to America because you love to coupon 😂 #FamilyFun xx

    Oh you made me cry Katie. Sarah is right we all adore you and you do so much for everyone. Our amazing tribal leader. Love u ❤️ #FamilyFun

    I love these ‘meet…’ series post, it gives you a real insight into what’s behind the screen. It’s great advice to know exactly who you’re blogging for and what about.

    You’ve done such a great job in such a short time, congrats. As a new blogger you give me hope :) #FamilyFun

    I enjoyed learning more about Katie as I really enjoy her blog. She is a fantastic writer and has created an amazing blog! #FamilyFun

  11. September 28, 2016 / 8:26 pm

    Ahh what a sweet post and how lovely do you both sound! I started my blog 7 months ago but have only really taken it seriously for a couple of months. It’s mostly to help other parents of disabled children to not feel so alone so I try to reach out to as many families like ours as possible.
    Love your answers, I look forward to reading your blogs more often ladies xx

  12. September 28, 2016 / 8:46 pm

    Yay, hello Katie! Fab answers. I didn’t know about couponing, either that it was a thing or that Katie does it. I will have to get some tips! #FamilyFun

    Another great instalment. I’m in a state of shock that Katie has only been blogging 10 months, her blog is so amazing you’d think she’s been doing it for years! There a couple of her fav blogs I’ve not heard of so off to check them out now x

  14. September 29, 2016 / 2:39 pm

    I love reading these kind of posts! I definitely thought Katie had been blogging for longer than that – to have such a good blog after such a relatively short time is pretty impressive! I’d love to go to New York too, especially at Christmas. Don’t think it’s going to happen this year though! #familyfun

    I love this post and its great to get to know people better:)


  16. September 30, 2016 / 4:17 pm

    I read some of her posts on her blog she is really good:)

  17. October 1, 2016 / 8:23 pm

    What a lovely series. I also have a lot of respect for Katie and consider her friend. She is so incredibly hard working and inspirational. Love the advice for new bloggers. Spot on x #familyfun

    This is a brilliant interview. I’m surprised that she hasn’t been blogging longer. #FAMILYFUN
