My New Guest Series

For a long time now I have wanted to start a guest series on my blog, basically where I make up some questions and then another bloggers answers them and I share the answers on this little blog of mine. I thought that it would be a great way for my readers to find new blogs to read and also lets face it we are all a little bit noisy and it would be a great way at finding out more about people. 

Ages ago I had the idea of setting up a feature all about others bloggers family lives, a way to find out where they live and what their family life is like. I thought that it would work as my blog is obviously called Newcastle Family Life and it would be nice too see what other bloggers lives around the country are like too. I have been putting off setting this series up for ages as

1.) I was not sure what questions to ask. 
2.) I don't have a little logo/badge like most series do and 
3.) I was terrified nobody would take part. 


Anyway I have decided that enough is enough and I am just going to get on with things and so I am launching OTHER BLOGGERS FAMILY LIVES.  I have written out some questions that will hopefully just tell us a little bit about you and your family, where you live, what your favourite family activity to do where you live is and if you have any exciting plans for the year ahead. I am hoping that it will be a weekly feature but if not enough people are interested it will be fortnightly or monthly on a Wednesday. 

If any bloggers are reading this and want to take part (please do) I would love to feature you. I will send you over some questions, simply reply to them when you can and include either a photo or your blogs logo, to include in the feature. I will of course include a link back to your blog which is good for your DA (mine is 26 so its average) and your social media channels. I will share via my own social media channels too and it will hopefully let others find out a little more about you and your blog. 

If you would like to take part then please just email me Lindsay at newcastlefamilylife@gmail.com and I can give you some more details and send the questions over. I am keeping my fingers tightly crossed that someone wants to take part so that this is not a total flop.

  3. Good luck with your series I hope that it goes well, fantastic way of giving other bloggers exposure. Is it specifically consigned to parent bloggers or could it be open to anyone because I would be happy to take part?

    1. Thank you so much Ana, No it is not just for parent bloggers at all and anyone can take part. I have only called it other bloggers family lives to tie in with my blog name, the questions can work for anyone. I would love you to take part xx

    3. Just e-mail me on the e-mail address above and I will then send the questions over to you. When you get the chance just send them back to me with your blog link, social media links and a photo. I then schedule the post into the next available slot. I am hoping to run it every Wednesday and feature a different blogger each week so I have a few already scheduled with the first one going live in the morning xx
