Every since I started blogging, I've met a lot of bloggers. There are so many wonderful blogs out, but with this big blogging community not a lot of people know some blogs exist. So I have decided to start a series on my blog called Blogger Interviews. I will be interviewing bloggers who inspire me, who are new to blogging, and just because I think this will be a fun experience!
So here's my first interview. I think this one is perfect to start off my series! Jemma blogs at dorkface.co.uk She is one of my favorite bloggers out here. Not only is she a great blogger, but she is a nice person as well. So keep reading, if you want to know a little more about her!

4. Where do you see your blog in the next year?
Hopefully it will have continued to grow, maybe even reached 3000 followers?! Who knows. I'd love it if my blog is was an inspiring place for people to visit.
5. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

To be yourself! Everyone's quirks and unique traits are very welcomed in the blogging world, and it makes you more relatable! Also never underestimate the power of helping someone and being nice - it could make a huge difference.

Positives - Staying creative, finding purpose, making new friends, discovering a whole community, going to events, inspiring others.

I'm already in the process! :)
9. Are you influenced by other bloggers?
Of course! There's a whole world of people out there and bloggers help me get to know different races, ages, genders, cultures and hobbies! It opens my eyes and always inspires me :)
10. Has blogging changed you? (Have you made any friends or experienced new things)
Definitely! I am SO different to who I was just over a year ago. I am so much more positive, determined and brave! I've made close blogging friends, I've changed my career and I've found my purpose. I am so much happier now, and a very positive person. I never used to be like this :)
