Post Comment Love 22nd - 24th February

It's Post Comment Love time - yes, it's Friday again! Join Stephanie and me for another week of our little linky where we welcome all bloggers all topics and enjoy reading about your week.

We're almost at the end of half term week so I've had the boys at home this week. Or rather I've had BP at home all week and LP has been off at his sports club for 3 days then at home. It's always eerily quiet when LP goes out for the day - he's the noisy one I guess!

It's the Hubby's birthday today too so we'll be celebrating together a little later. Cake is on the cards - yay! Birthdays aren't a huge deal when you're older are they, but it's nice to try and get a little celebration in there. We may even go for a meal - we'll see.

As I've got the boys at home and it's Hubby's birthday I'm making it a short update today. Enjoy your weekend. 

Do you have a fun weekend planned?

Blogger Showcase Gemma from Hemingway Sisters

Who are you? 

I am Gemma, a mum of 4 from Yorkshire. I love writing about parenting, finances, work, employment, business, property, parties anything that takes my fancy really. I started blogging in August 2018 and have just kept writing. 

How did you discover blogs/blogging?

I discovered blogging purely by accident, I have always liked writing and putting down my thoughts and I was reading something one day and came across blogging and then came across an event that was happening about a month later so I paid the fee and signed up to the event and went there and haven't looked back. 

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging just because I want to share my thoughts, ideas and things I have learnt, because I love a challenge and enjoy the fact people are reading my things and am enjoying the community that is the blogging community. 

What do you find most challenging?

The challenging bits sometimes are creating posts that are long enough, some times I have ideas but there isn't enough words to make a decent length blog post so I wish I had more to say sometimes. I also struggle with inspiration sometimes so I do tend to write in advance to save me from writers block. I find planning for occasions really helpful. 

What is your favourite topic to write about?

My favourite topic is definitely finance, I love finance and anything about money however I have found there is only so much can be written about this so I ran out of things pretty quickly. Next year I am focusing on my diet and also a lot of home renovations so I can write about other things that are happening in my life. 

Are you blogging for fun or do you have goals?

I think it is a good idea to have goals so to continue building my following, creating more of a brand feel and just keep pushing towards growing, meeting new people and networking however I don't want to really make money from my blog. 

Have you ever attended a blogging conference and if so, what did you think?

I attended my first blogging conference a month after I started blogging and it was great, the people were so friendly and nice and I got quite a few opportunities and contacts from it. 

What are your 3 best posts?

My 3 best posts are my Xmas Gift guide because it took a while and it was my first big one, my other is a post about the importance of reading because I think reading with kids is so important for their learning and my 3rd will be published 1st January and it is basically a 101 guide of what I have learnt in blogging in the 6 months I have been doing it. I love the reflective type posts. 

Describe yourself in three words!

If I described myself in 3 words I would say ambitious, chocolatey and misunderstood. 

Are you a tea and biscuits or coffee and cake person?

I love tea and cake and have never even tried coffee but I love a Victoria sponge any day with a cup of tea. 

What's your idea of a perfect night out?

A perfect night out would be a meal with the husband, something traditional and home made, then a delicious dessert and then possibly the theatre with a few drinks afterwards and a boogie. 

Your perfect night in?

Perfect night in would be a board game, a movie, a dance, some chocolate and cuddles. Oh and a massage because I love massages. 

What would your best friend/OH/mum or kids say is your best quality?

My other half would describe me as frustrating but amazing, my mum would say I am resourceful, my kids would describe me as the best I imagine and hope. 

That's all from me,
