How long have you been blogging?
For around 5 years! I began blogging when I was just 15!
Why did you decide to start your blog?
I originally blogging when I was 15 due to my passion for writing/poetry however I never really had an actually 'niche' . It wasn't until I got into health and fitness that I started to find my way with blogging, I created a health & fitness blog but again this still wasn't exactly what I wanted to do. It still felt like something was missing. I was very close to giving up blogging all together. It wasn't until I created HappilyHolli that I began to find my way. I had lots of factors which came together to create a space where I could talk about health, fitness, balance, self love, create recipes and so much more. I'd just got out of a relapse with my eating disorder and turned to Veganism. I was trying out lots of healthy, plant based recipes and found a love that I wanted to share with everyone else. I love photography, writing and media so it all fitted together! I also found my way with fitness and what exercises/workouts I enjoyed along with my passion for self love and balance. I've also found myself posting more mental health posts/chats which have helped people all around the world! I've had messages from girls saying I've even saved their lives which I have to say is incredibly overwhelming. My blog has become a space and community, where people can grow through health & happiness and never feel judged or alone!
What do you hope to achieve for your content in 2018?
I want HappilyHolli to keep growing! I've got so many ideas to keep her growing further. I want to keep creating more recipes (a recipe Ebook is in the thoughts!!), along with a few new additions such as a monthly newsletter! I'm currently studying for my Personal Training qualification so I'm hoping to go along with online coaching also! I'm excited to hopefully keep inspiring helping as many people as I can! I want to try and encourage people things can get better, and you can truly find a happier place in life with what you do, eat and how you see yourself.
What is your favourite social media channel & why?
Instagram has always been my number 1! I love anything visual and love how you can create a certain look through photography, along with connecting with so many like minded people!
What is your favourite tool or app that helps in your content creation?
I use the app VCSO cam to help edit photos which is something so simple but something I've always loved.
Who is your blogging/vlogging/content inspiration?
I've always had 2 main inspirations over social media! The first being Carly Rowena who I've followed and loved for as long as I can remember! Carly has always reflected exactly what I wanted to do, she's down the earth, I love what she promotes and love the content she gives. If I were to have a older sister, I'd 100% want it to be Carly! And the second is Zanna Van Dijk, who I've adored since she started her Instagram account as simply a hobby! I've followed Zanna's journey since day one, and watching her grow with herself and brand inspires me so much.
What is the one piece of advice you’d give other bloggers & aspiring bloggers?
Fun/Random fact about you:
I wrestle! It's something no one really knows about me! I started wrestling at the start of the year, which began as a one off thing but turns out I bloody love it! Haha!
