Blog showcase: Suitcase and Sandals

One of my new year's blogging resolutions is to share the love a little bit and showcase some of the best blogs I have come across this month. I got in touch with Hannah via a Twitter chat and took a peek around her blog Suitcase and Sandals, and soon loved the varied content. (She was also the very first person to leave me comment, so I will love her forever anyway). Suitcase and Sandals is a true lifestyle blog, covering practically every topic under the sun, depending on what has happened lately in Hannah's life. Posts include reviews of books, films and beauty products, thoughtful ideas and ways to feel just a little bit more awesome. One of the things I love about this blog is that you never know what will pop up, but it is always something interesting, and I know it will be something that is relateable.

So, let's go ahead and meet Hannah, who was kind enough to think about and answer the questions I posed...

1. What inspired you to start your blog?

I had been reading blogs for a while, and have always enjoyed writing so decided to take the plunge in 2014 after a visit to Barcelona!

2. What do you hope readers will come away with?

I just hope that they enjoy what they have read. Quite a lot of my posts are things I do when I'm stressed, or to relax, or to make my life easier so if any of those help someone too I'd be happy!

3. What is your blogging process? For example do you have a schedule?  Do your posts start with pictures or images?

Since entering full time work in July, I've not really stuck to a schedule because I am just so busy and tired all the time. I've been trying to post once a week (and failing quite a lot in the run up to Christmas!!!). I usually include an image, but always start with some text introducing the post.

4. What are your favourite posts and why?

Lifestyle posts. I love all types of post really, but the ones I especially enjoy are ones like my break free from worrying post, and ones about what I do to make myself feel better in general!

5. What has blogging brought to your life?

Lots - I love chatting to other like minded people, and I enjoy reading others blogs too. It gives me a sense of purpose in my free time. It's also been great for looking back on things I've done in the past to remind me of the great things that have happened or how I've done things in the past!

6. What would be your top advice to new bloggers?

Just be you. Write about the things you want to write about, and just enjoy it. Don't compare yourself to others. It's easy to do, but everyone brings something unique to the blogosphere, so just do your thing and have fun!

So go ahead and check out Suitcase and Sandals...and don't forget to leave a comment!
