It's A Blogger's Life with Kate from Pouting In Heels

It's A Blogger's Life with Kate from Pouting In HeelsWelcome to the It's A Blogger's Life interview series.
As you may have seen, I posted a list of some of my favourite blogs at the start of the month, and what it is I love about them. Check it out here, you will definitely find some amazing new blogs to follow if you missed it first time around. I asked some of the amazing bloggers if they would be willing to take part in this series and introduce themselves to you and share a little of their blogging wisdom.
I was so happy at the responses I got to my request - it really does go to show the strength of the blogging community and how bloggers help each other out.
Thank you to everyone who responded, and thanks to each and every one of you on that list for consistently publishing beautiful and inspiring posts that keep me coming back for more.
Anyway, enough from me, over to the interview.

Today we have Kate from Pouting In Heels.

1. Tell us a little about yourself
Hello! I'm Kate, a professional blogger and mum to one, my daughter Elsie. Besides blogging, I also work as a freelance journalist, PR and copywriter.
I run two blogs – Pouting In Heels (lifestyle & parenting) and To Dream Of Dresses (a style blog with soul). You can also catch me writing for The Huffington Post occasionally too.
I'm an ordinary, working mum, just trying my very best to create an extraordinary and fulfilling life!
2. Why did you start blogging?
I got into blogging originally when I left full time employment to go freelance and started blogging about my freelancing journey.
I soon realised that people really enjoyed my posts and so a short while after, I decided to set up a 'proper' blog 'Pouting In Heels' (away from my professional site) to talk about everything that is important to a modern woman and I've never looked back

3. What is your blog about?
Pouting In Heels is a lifestyle and parenting blog so as you'd expect it covers everything from motherhood to beauty, however I'm also incredibly passionate about helping women to feel better about themselves and each other.
This is what I really try to do on the blog, though writing honest pieces about being a modern woman and everything that this entails.

4. What are the long term goals for your blog?
To increase my audience, to help / inspire more women to feel good about themselves and to look at extending the Pouting In Heels brand with books, podcasts and quite possibly, even a shop!

5. Any tips for bloggers?
Every blogger is different and offers something unique, but if I could give only one piece of advice, it would have to be this: keep things real and always be authentic.
Don't fake it. Don't pretend to be something you're not. Find your voice and own it with pride, and people will come.
6. Describe yourself in 3 words
Erm... passionate, caring and freedom-loving! (Is that four?!)

7. What are your top 3 blogging essentials?
A brain full of creative ideas, time (!) and my trusty and fabulous Macbook Air.

8. What would be your dream blogging assignment and why?
I've had some fabulous blogging assignments already but my dream one would be to collaborate with a brand which is also passionate about helping women and improving their lives.
So for example, working with a beauty brand like Dove or a charity like Refuge would be perfect for me. (I really hope they're listening! ;-) )

9. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose and why?
Such a tough question but it would probably have to be Rome, just because it's my favourite city in the world. I love everything that it has to offer, but particularly the ancient history and the food.

10. Where can we find you?
Pouting in Heels, my parent and lifestyle blog, To Dream of Dresses, a style blog with soul, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and my YouTube channel.
