So I saw this great linky on one of my favourite lifestyle blogs that I follow – bump to baby and I thought I’d have a go at answering the questions myself!

http://www.sparklesandstretchmarks.comThe link is called five among friends and the gist of it is that every month a lovely group of bloggers (listed below) will link up a series of Q&A’s. Other people can join in too, hence my post, and add the link with their answer to the linky.

It’s a great way to share posts and meet new bloggers as everyone will check out each others answers and learn a little bit about their favourite bloggers!

So the questions this week were written by Hayley at Sparkles & Stretchmarks and the topic is ‘Getting to know you’, here it goes ….


1) Describe yourself in 5 words

Crafty, creative, content, inspired & of course pregnant!


2) Why did you decide to start blogging?
I wanted a great way to document my pregnancy journey as well as my passions for all things creative and crafty!
3) How did you choose the name of your blog and why?
Lilypod is my sister Heidi’s nickname from my dad – ‘Heidi-Lilypod’ ; and Sweetpea is mine from my Nan. We initially planned a kind of Kardashian sisters enterprise with the name but I decided a blog would be a better place to start! haha She will of course get royalties when I become rich and famous!


4) Tell us something about yourself that you think might surprise us!

I’m 7 months pregnant and engaged and yet me and my fiancé Pete have only been together for 8 months, talk about moving fast huh!?


5) What is your favourite and least favourite thing about blogging?

My favourite thing is all the inspiration and support I’ve gained from other bloggers. I also love that I get a way to express my creative side and make use of my creative writer job title (even if I’m not being paid for it).

My least favourite thing has to be the frustration of having so many posts to write and not enough time to write them all! My draft posts are becoming a bit excessive!


So those are my answers, why don’t you give it a go?

Don’t forget to check out the other girls answers, I’ve found a great new set of blogs to follow from this (when am I going to have time to finish my posts!?)
Alex – Bump To Baby
Jessica – Our Baby Blog
Kerry – Lived With Love
