How long have you been blogging?
Why did you decide to start your blog?
What do you hope to achieve for your blog in 2017?
We re-launched the blog earlier this year with a brand new website and our aim was to make it look more professional and help us to grow our audience. We've always primarily used GS as a hobby and creative outlet, so we've been less bothered about follower numbers, but we'd love to grow these a bit more in 2017.
What is your favourite social media channel & why?
We love Instagram - it's just perfect for our imagery, it's where #foodporn was born! We also love how Insta Stories now lets you post less-than-perfect content to give followers a behind the scenes look at things, as well as joining us in the moment. We're both quite camera shy so I can't imagine we'll make the leap to YouTube and vlogging anytime soon, but never say never!
Who is your blogging inspiration?
We love following smaller, local bloggers to get ideas for things to do and places to eat in our home towns of Manchester and Harrogate. But we also take style and interiors inspo from bigger names like RVK Loves, Blossoming Birds and Lobster & Swan.
What is the one piece of advice you’d give other bloggers & aspiring bloggers?
Think about your reasons for blogging and stick to them - don't be tempted to sell out just to increase follower numbers and get freebies. If blogging ever feels like a chore we just don't do it - we wait until we're in the mood to write and edit. This means our content can be a bit haphazard (we're working on that!) but hopefully means the posts we do write are honest and written with passion.
Fun/Random fact about you:
One of us is a doctor. And one of us has never eaten meat and refused to do so since birth!
