Please introduce yourself and your blog
Hi *waves*! I’m Rebecca (aka Becster) of becster.com I’ve been blogging on and off for years… I think my first blog started about 15 years ago but this current version of the blog has been going since August 2013. I haven’t got a focus niche but if you want to put me in a specific box then I guess I’d be lifestyle/parenting. I blog about pretty much anything that comes to mind… and inspiration can come from anywhere. For example I published a post about what I’d put in a Time Capsule after watching an episode of Peppa Pig. Who knew?! My favourite topics are family days out for example seeing Thomas the Tank Engine or my Photo Days posts.
What is your favourite thing about blogging?
The community! I love the interaction between bloggers be it on Twitter, Facebook or simply by commenting on each other’s blogs. I’ve made some great online friends via blogging and I’m hoping to meet some of these great people soon!
What is your least favourite thing about blogging?
Sometimes it can be a bit stressful to try and keep up there with numbers etc. I’m guilty of putting pressure on myself to try and improve stats and comparing to others when really, I ought to focus on enjoying the blogging!
What have you learnt from blogging? Has it shaped any of your goals for the future?
I never know how to answer this question! I’ve improved my photography skills (I hope so at least!) and as for shaping goals… I don’t have goals other than have a happy life – blogging may or may not help that!
What advice would you give to new bloggers? Is there anything you would do differently if you were to start again?
I wish I’d have known about Twitter chats before now. Even though this blog has been going since August 2013, I didn’t start Twitter chats until March 2015. I now host the 1pm #ltbloggers chat every Wednesday and I’m currently looking for chat topics! So any suggestions give me a Tweet!
Do you have any favourite blogs that you read?
I read so many blogs that I feel like I shouldn’t single any out! But if I have to then today I’m stalking Sian at Cakey Dreamer because she’s into the same sort of thing as me – food, fitness and Disney!
