Behind The Scenes Of A Blogger Tag

It's been a while since I last got tagged in a post like this so I was really happy to see one of my blogging faves Louisa had nominated me to take part in the #BehindTheScenesOfABloggerTag. It was one I'd never heard of before so feel free to take part if you want to answers the questions too.

Who inspired you to create a blog and publish blog posts?
There wasn't anyone in particular really. I'd read a few beauty blogs in the past but never thought it was something I would do. Then I left uni and had pretty much nothing to do! I'd just started experiencing anxiety, couldn't find a job and just needed something to fill my time, and this was the thing I decided to go for.

How long have you been blogging for now?
It's been over 4 years now! I never expected when I published my first shocking post that it would be something I'd carry on with for more than a few months let alone years later.

Have you had any other blogging websites?
Not that I can remember.

Where do you see yourself and your blog in 5 years time?
I honestly have no idea. Whenever I try to come up with some sort of rough plan, it just doesn't work out. I'd like to think we'll have moved house and have a much longed for dog, it would be nice to finally have overcome my anxiety too, but I'm sure I'll still be blogging through it all. I never expected to one day be able to go self-employed with my blog and whilst it's not 'full time' I'd love for it to be one day so who knows really.

What message are you trying to get across with your blog?
I don't think I have a message really with my blog. It's just always been a place for me to talk about whatever I want and get my feelings out. If people take something from my blog or leave feeling happy then that's lovely but I definitely don't actively aim to spread any sort of message with it, it's just for me really.

Do people from school, college, uni or work find your blog?
As far as I'm aware most family know about it, friends and people I went to school with tend to see tweets or Insta stories I post so they'll know of it but to be honest I don't think most people care! I still think blogging is something people don't understand so I don't really receive much support or acknowledgement from a lot that do know. It used to bother me the thought of people I knew, from wherever, finding my blog but it's only improved over the years and I'm proud of it, so I'm really not fussed anymore.

What does your username mean?
It all comes from the film 'Love and Other Drugs'. I had no idea what to name my blog and George and I both came up with a few ideas and then as we were watching that film at the time, he came up with Food and Other Loves. At the time I was just starting a blog to post recipes so I thought it was brilliant, I still do. I couldn't imagine it as anything else now!

Who are your favourite bloggers?
I have so many, I feel like I'm going to miss so many out. Chloe from I'm Just A Girl for all the travel inspo and advice, Hannah from Luxury Blush for fab beauty reviews, Jenny from Jenny In Neverland for an abundance of book reviews and Jordanne from The Life of A Glasgow Girl for a collection of amazing posts. Honestly there are loads though, I couldn't possibly list them all!

My nominations:
All the 4 bloggers I've just mentioned! Feel free to copy the questions if you want to have a go too though.
