Hi guys! I have decided to do an Interview with a blogger series every Wednesday, and I hope you'll be able to join me! This is so fun and I hope you enjoy reading the answers!
- Tell me and my readers a bit about your blog and what makes you different?
My blog, Little Things With Jassy, is based in Helsinki, Finland and it's a work in progress. As I'm on a journey to improve my English, it's also a place where I share my thoughts about pretty much everything. Parenthood, being a new mum, beauty product reviews and stuff about my life in general. What makes me different? I'm being 100% myself, without trying to please anyone as life is too short trying to please everyone all the time. My reviews are sometimes brutally honest, especially if I didn't like the product at all and I've also shared some pretty personal stuff there. I'm living through honesty!
An extremely honest post that Jasmine's done is this one about her breast reduction surgery!
2. How did you first get into blogging?
I started my first blog, back in 7th grade. I wrote in Finnish but the way I wrote didn't quite match with Finns. I got a lot of hate. Later on, when I started putting Little Things With Jassy together I started in Finnish, slowly transitioning it Finnish/English and now I'm writing completely in English. I don't know how I got into blogging, I just started it for some reason. I saw an ad for Blogger when surfing on the Internet with our old computer and that's how it started.
3. What do you do outside of blogging?
My life outside of blogging includes lots of baby cuddles and family time. I have a 7-month-old son in the house so he's keeping me a bit busy during the daytime. When my husband comes home from work I get some me-time for studying and blogging.
4. What bloggers inspire you?
There are so many! I love blogging community because there's so much diversity and so many things to get inspired from. Just to mention a few who are popping to my head right now are Caitylis (caitylis.co.uk), Rhianna (rhiannaolivia.com) & Jemma (dorkface.co.uk).
5. How do you motivate yourself to blog?
I make lists. A lot of lists. I live through lists. Marking stuff done is by far the most satisfying thing on Earth haha! Though I haven't needed a lot of motivation to blog as I treat it as my hobby and I try not to stress about it that much.
6. What is your greatest achievement in regards to blogging?
My greatest achievement must be the fact that I switched my language from Finnish to English. It's the best thing I've ever done for my blog.
Thank you for reading!! Hope to see you next Wednesday for another interview.
