How long have you been blogging?

This particular blog has been since late 2011. Overall, I’ve been blogging since 2007 so I’m a bit of a dinosaur in the blogging world!

Why did you decide to start your blog?

I was in a dull desk job and needed a creative outlet. I used to doodle at my desk on post its.

What do you hope to achieve for your blog in 2017?

I hope to expand into video and show my face a bit more.

What is your favourite social media channel & why?

Instagram. I’m such a visual person and I love scrolling through my home feed. Other people’s work is so inspiring! I especially love the introduction of Instagram stories – it’s great getting to peek into other people’s worlds.

Who is your blogging inspiration?

Early on in my blogging journey I discovered A Beautiful Mess who have really shown where hard work and fun content can take you. I loved it so much when I found it that I went right back to their first post and read the entire thing.

What is the one piece of advice you’d give other bloggers & aspiring bloggers?

Write what you love – otherwise, what’s the point?

Fun/Random fact about you:

Nomad Seeks Home gets it’s name from the fact that I’ve lived in 25 homes. I’m 29!
