Meet The Bloggers - Lucy From The Parent Game

Meet The Bloggers is a new series where I get to interview some of my favourite bloggers and get to highlight new bloggers too. If you would like to be included please give me a shout on social media. Today, it's my friend Lucy Dorrington from The Parent Game blog.

Can you tell my readers about yourself and your blog.

I started blogging in 2012, because I enjoy writing and it seemed like a fun idea. I couldn't find many blogs to read that focussed on older children and those of student age, so thought it might be nice to talk about ideas and issues surrounding those ages, as opposed to babies and toddlers.

What inspired you to start blogging?

A good friend of mine had been blogging for a long time, just for fun and seemed to get so much enjoyment out of it, I thought I might as well have a go. Once you get over the initial 'what if someone actually reads it' nerves, it's really fun!

What do you love writing about the most?

That's a difficult one. I love writing, so, in some ways, the more challenging the better. Like, when someone says to me; 'I can't find an interesting angle on this really boring review, can you have a go?', for example! I also love a really good rant now and again, too. That's always fun, especially if it's about a subject I'm really passionate about!

Tell me about your proudest blogging achievement.

Probably that it's lasted nearly four years! When you see something tiny grow from one little piece of writing into something that strangers tell me they actually read, that's pretty amazing. I could bore you with various stats and whatnot, but the fact that people actually read it is a really big thing for me!

What is your favourite blog post of 2015 and why?

That would have to be 'Our Year in Pictures'. The best thing about having a blog is that it gives you an amazing diary of all the fun times you have together as a family. This is particularly important to me, as I have problems with my short term memory due to illness. I love looking back on our adventures together, so that was a really fun post to write.

Do you have any specific goals for 2016?

I would like to make more of our Youtube channel. Luke, who has just turned ten, loves starring in our videos, but I think I need to step up and do more myself. It's too easy being behind the camera all the time!

Tell me have you read Lucy's blog?
