Interview with South African Mom Blogger - Robynn-Lisa Osborne
Emma Kate started this blog series to showcase what great mothers we have out there and to show support between fellow mothers. The series showcases how these ladies became mom bloggers and what inspired them to start this journey in their lives. The interviews may even inspire another fellow mom to start their own blog.
Today I would like to introduce Mom Blogger - Robynn-Lisa Osborne who started Love-a-Little
How long ago did you start your blog?
Literally just the other day
Why did you decide to start a mom blog?
I absolutely love language and creative writing and being a mom. And the idea of incorporating all my favourite things gives me joy.
What was it like in the beginning?
It's still early days so I'm pretty excited but it is time consuming
How did you come up with the name for your blog?
My kids are little… hence the name. But it's also about showing love and compassion to others, be it people, small businesses, ourselves.
Robynn-Lisa Osborne and Family
What is unique about your blog?
I am just out here trying to do what works for me. I'm passionate about my family and compassionate about others. I live my the phrase, "aspire to inspire". So that is my primary goal
How do you market your blog and what has been the most successful way of marketing?
I'm still figuring all this out. So I basically try brands and things that interest me and I write about these things. I then ask the brands for permission to post about my experience, hoping to help them and others. And I just take it from there.
How many hours a day do you spend on your blog?
Currently not enough, I'm hoping to get into a routine soon.
Can you describe/ outline your typical Day?
It's all about the kids as I'm home with a 3 year old and a 9 month old. So everything from cooking and cleaning to entertaining and playing. The day starts at around 6 and I usually put the kids to bed from 7:30 pm, after which I do admin or have some "me" time.
Has being a mom blogger affected your family life at all?
I think doing it purely out of love for writing and sharing a journey, makes it pleasurable. It's increased my knowledge of local brands, things to do with kids, more fun outings and things to do. So it's definitely had a positive impact.
Do you have any advice for a fellow mom wanting to start their own blog?
Just do it! But you should have a passion for some aspect: be it the creative side, pictures, writing, sharing info, finding a mom community. You shouldn't be motivated by free things or getting attention.
