Spotlight Saturday #17
Hey guys! Welcome back to my Spotlight Saturday series. ❤ This week, I’m getting to interview a lovely blogger I know who has an absolutely fantastic blog! She writes about all of the different occasions and events that go on in her hometown of Hull, England – please welcome Amelia, the writer from Amelia in Hull!
Hi guys!! I’m so honoured that I get to be interviewed by the amazing Maggie for Spotlight Saturday!! It’s such a good series idea and I can’t wait to answer all the questions for the interview.
Thank you for accepting the invitation! I’m looking forward to doing this with you. 🙂 The first question I’d like to ask you is: what inspired you to start Amelia in Hull?
I’ve always loved to write from a very young age so my parents encouraged me to write a blog where I could write a post every single week about Hull being City of Culture 2017. Also, I wanted to be able to show people how amazing my home city Hull is.
Aww that is so cool! I’ve never thought about blogging about the area where I live, but I’m sure that it would get me so much more interested in its history and current events! So, what are some of the main topics you like to write posts for on your blog?
I do quite a lot of reviews on events or independent cafes I’ve been to in the area in and around Hull. I do some travel posts as well and some history of Hull posts about famous people from Hull or interesting history events that occurred in Hull.
That’s great! Oh, I love your historical posts; they’re my personal favorite of yours. 🙂 What are two different posts that you enjoyed writing recently?
Those are great ones! Sometimes, it’s the posts that take more time to write that are the most fun.. 🙂 My next question for you is, what have you learned about blogging during your time on WordPress? (Any helpful tips or tricks?)
I’ve learnt that you should focus on your own blog and what works for you instead of falling into the trap of constantly comparing yourself to other people. Also you can’t expect to get loads of followers all at once when you first start blogging; you’ll gradually gain followers over time as your blog progresses and grows.
You need to focus on writing about things you’re passionate about.
Great tips, Amelia! Thank you so much for letting me interview you; I’ve really enjoyed this. 🙂 Is there anything more you’d like to say to my readers before we go?
