#BloggersinWales Linky – An Interview with Inspire Create Educate
27th May 2018
After launching the first #BloggersinWales Monthly linky last month. The time has come for another. This month, I’m introducing you to the lovely Lauren from Inspire Create Educate.
Tell me a bit about you and your blog.
I’m mother of three, fiancee of one and lover of all things caffeinated! I help busy parents lead more eco-friendly lives so they can care for our planet and keep up with the pace of modern life. I write vegan recipes, zero waste/plastic free tips, and mindfulness practices on the blog.
I was born here and have lived in South East Wales my entire life.
Are you a Welsh speaker?
Sadly not – I was great at it in school and can understand some written Welsh, but I’m really out of practice! I have to get back into using Duolingo at some point.
What is your favourite thing about Wales?
I think there’s a culture of friendliness that just isn’t like anything anywhere else in the world. We look out for each other, and that’s a beautiful thing.
What is your least favourite thing about Wales?
I don’t think I have a least favourite thing! People trying (and failing) to imitate Welsh accents, maybe?
Do you have a special place in Wales?
Newport – it’s where I was born, I spent some of my childhood here and now I live here as an adult. I have always had a connection with Casnewydd and I don’t care what anyone says: I love it. This is my city!
What is your most special blogging memory? It doesn’t have to be Wales related.
I don’t have a “most special” memory, just a small collection of moments I realised that yes, I *can* do this! Nice comments left on the blog, acquaintances asking after my blog and saying they’d enjoyed a post, nice comments from PRs and getting my first paying client.
Thank you so much, Lauren, it’s been great getting to know you.
