The Lifestyle Blogger Tag

The Lifestyle Blogger Tag cover

So I love a good old tag, and havent done one since this one. I recently came across the lifestyle blogger tag so just knew I had to do it. It’s a bit of fun and I hope you get to find out a little bit more about me and my blog.

How did you come up with your blog’s name?

I knew I somehow wanted my own name as part of my blog’s name. I remember, back in the day, when ASOS first began. It was all about creating outfits that were cheaper copies of what celebs were wearing. ASOS stood for As Seen on Screen. Therefore I thought I would go for As Seen on Jean! I love ASOS and wanted to share things that might have been seen on me too and I would recommend. It just seemed to fit! I love that it rhymes too.

Who is your favorite lifestyle blogger?

There are so many great lifestyle bloggers out there! I read a few blogs before starting my own, but have discovered some amazing ones over the past year. One great blog is that of my fellow brummie, The Ting Thing. I also love a range of other blogs too, including Kathy’s beauty and fashion blog  – Blogs of a Shopaholic and Tash’s mummy blog Toddler Groups and Tantrums.

Where do you get your inspirations for posts from?

I’m very lucky to receive some incredible products from awesome brands. Therefore these often provide the inspiration. Sometimes they are independent posts, and sometimes they are part of a ‘tips’ style post including a combination of different aspects. Other posts are influenced by my life and what is happening, others are just random thoughts that go through my head! For example, as a class teacher I received lots of wonderful gifts at the end of the academic year. So I thought, why not create a blog post from it, as inspiration for people wanting to know what to buy teachers!

What was your first blog post about?

My first one was a ‘what’s this blog going to be about’ type post. The next one was called Autumn Feels in which I discuss all the things I enjoy about Autumn. It’s mad to believe that I posted these posts pretty much a year ago!

What are you favorite things to write about?

I love all the posts I write about! However I’m a big fan of my monthly faves posts because it’s a great way to reflect on the month I’ve had. My most recent faves post, September Faves, can be found here.

What advice would you give to a lifestyle blogger who’s just starting out?

To just write about things you’re interested in and think about how they can be helpful to your readers. Have fun with your blog and just roll with it!

Is there anything you wish you could change about your blog?

Sometimes I wonder if I should have more of a niche. However I feel my niche is review/tips/chatter. Not sure what other angle I could go with. I would love to know what my readers think re niche so please let me know in the comments!

Recommend 2 fellow lifestyle bloggers. Who would you tag next?

I would tag Ting, Kathy and Tash, plus anyone else who fancies joining in!
So this was the tag! Short and sweet! Do you enjoy doing tags? Feel free to do this one if you fancy it. Let me know if you do and I will come and check it out!

Until next time…

Jean xoxo

    I love hearing bloggers stories I think it’s great that you have a more general blog concept. Mine is more narrow and that can be a challenge at times.

    It’s always fun to get to know a fellow blogger and learn more about how they manage their blog. I definitely appreciate the tips along the way even if you were just answering the questions! I enjoyed reading the interview!

    The way that I came up with my blog’s name is that I’m a mother who teaches full-time in the Bronx. If that doesn’t make me a tough cookie, I don’t know what would.
