So this is my second post in the get to know.. series and I’m excited to announce that it’s with the creative genius behind Billie Geena. I met her a while ago at a book club for bloggers and have loved her blog for some time now so I was thrilled when she told me she would like to be a part of this series.
Who are you and what do you blog about?
I’m Billie from Billiegeena.co.uk and I’m a lifestyle and beauty blogger. I mainly do lifestyle but my shopping habits needed an excuse.
Where did the name of your blog come from?
Billie Geena is my name, it’s half my grandads name and half Geena Davis. Not a very creative one from me!
What do you like to do in your free time other than blogging?
I tend to see friends in my free time or binge watch Crazy Ex Girlfriend on Netflix.
Do you have any regrets with your blog since you first started it? Anything you wish you’d done differently?
I wish I never went with my old hosts and just paid the extra money I have had to now. It would have been so much easier for me, but it’s all sorted now.
Have you ever received any negative feedback from your blog and if so, how did you react?
I’ve been very lucky and I haven’t really had any negative feedback over the 3 years that I’ve been blogging. Obviously it’s not all been rainbows and sunshine but I just take things and move on.
Do you have long term plans for your blog or do you just take it as it comes?
I just take my blog as it comes, I’d love it to one day become a full time thing but it comes with hard work. I work full time so I don’t always find time to work on my blog.
Where do you get the ideas for your blog posts?
I get really inspired by Instagram and seeing people’s beauty posts or by having a nosey at other blogs.
What’s the most exciting opportunity you’ve had from blogging?
I get incredibly excited every time I get offered to review a restaurant, the best one I ever received was to review the botanist, it was like a fairy tale!
