Meet The Blogger! (Part 1)

Happy Monday Everyone!

As we mentioned last week, we are starting a ‘Meet The Blogger’ series beginning from today. We were contacted by a few of you last week and we sent the questions/details out in the middle of last week, we haven’t recieved the answers back from those bloggers yet so we thought instead of leaving it till next week, we’d go ahead as planned and I thought I would introduce myself being the creator behind the bloggers post twitter account!

Don’t forget to email for more info at Caledoniankblog@yahoo.co.uk if you would like to take part in the ‘Meet The Blogger’ series and feature on our blog/twitter.

So here goes….

Joanne Gahan Donnelly

 

1) Hello Blogger, Could you tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog?

Hi, I’m Joanne but everyone calls me ‘Jo’. My blog is focused on Beauty and lifestyle but I also like to add random things when it takes my fancy. I don’t have any rules when it comes to my blog. I see it as a hobby.

2) How long have you been a blogger and what inspired you to become one?
I’ve been a blogger for about 2 years now, it’s only been in the last year that I have started to blog more. I enjoy reading other blogs and I’m obsessed with Cosmetics and finding bargains when I’m out shopping and writing about them.
3) Would you describe yourself as a Full or Part Time Blogger?
Part Time Blogger.
4) Which is your Favourite post you have done to date? (please include link)
It’s hard to pick one but one of my most recent posts which I enjoyed doing was the Review of the Thornton’s Chocolate heart box which I also had a Giveaway for:
5) Which Social Media Platform is you Favourite?
Twitter!
6) Do your family/friends know about your blog?, if answered yes..what do they think about it?
My partner and some of my friends know about it and they like the idea, they know what I’m like when it comes to cosmetics and shopping. They also know that I enjoy writing.
7) Do you include your blog on your CV/Resume?
I have included details briefly, I think it shows that you’re self motivated and able to create something using your own ideas and hardwork.
8) What do you do when you’re not blogging?
I run TheBloggersPost page, I like to tweet in my spare time and I also work in PR. I enjoy spending time with my partner, two cats ‘MJ and Freddie Mercury’, friends and family
9) Do you have any Favourite Bloggers?
There are quite a few blogs I enjoy reading especially seeing/reading the posts on TheBloggersPost everyday, it would be impossible for me to list them all and I’d be worried about leaving anyone out.
10) What are your goals for the future with your blog?
I plan to carry on and see where it goes. I enjoy working with various brands and getting to know other bloggers and following their blogs but I don’t have plans right now to be a full time blogger.
You can find me on: Twitter | Blog | IG | Google+
So there you go! Now it’s your turn….If you would like to feature in Next Week’s ‘Meet the Blogger’, pop us an email.

10k Lush Giveaway!!!

Hi Guys!

If you folllow us on Twitter you may know that we hit 10k this week and as that is quite a milestone we thought it was only right that we say Thank you to our followers and hard working loyal bloggers by having another little cheeky Giveaway.

We asked you in a poll what you would prefer our 10k Giveaway to include….everyone said ‘Lush’. so we decided after some phonecalls etc that we would have a Giveaway for 2 winners.

1st prize will be a £40 Lush Gift Card and the 2nd prize will be a ‘Relax’ Gift Box.

At the moment we still have our Debenhams £50 E-Gift Card Giveaway still running (we weren’t expecting to hit 10k so fast)..

So, don’t forget to enter the Debenhams Giveaway if you haven’t already done so! It’s like Christmas all over again lol!!

Ok, so all you have to do is look out for the Comp tweet (same as always with our Giveaways) and RT (must be following too)

The Lush Comp ends on Sunday 7th February! and the Debenhams Comp ends Sunday 17th January.

So, Good Luck! and we pick the names at random so anyone can be in with a chance, some bloggers have won in the past and recently some non-bloggers have won so you never can tell.

Also, as we are just starting this blog, feel free to follow us and we’ll follow you back (our aim is to follow as many bloggers as humanly possible)

Ok, well there’s the deets and we Thank you for reading and being a fabulous follower/blogger/person!

All the best for 2016!!

x Jo & Lynn

so this is a working progress and we are still putting our ideas together so hope you’ll also join us on here..
