#TravelTuesday Guest Blog

I am often on the scout for new blogs to read on different topics. I find most bloggers refreshing in that they are not scared to share an opinion and this often brings a whole range of different ideas and impressions to their writing.

I also get asked where to find bloggers to follow, so I have decided to try and feature some in the attempt to introduce people to different influences.

This weeks blogger is: Cindy Alfino from 3 kids 2 dogs and 1 old house

1. Who are you and where are you from?

Hello there!  I’m Cindy Alfino although I guess I’m most commonly called Mom.  My family and I live in the overly sunny and rainless Cape Town.  We’re born and bred Cape Townians but soon we’ll be setting off on a year long adventure around South Africa in our Campervan.  More on that here:  http://www.3kids2dogsand1oldhouse.co.za/2018/01/30/packing-bags-travel-campervan/

 

2. What made you want to start blogging and how long have you been doing it? 

I’ve been blogging since 2010 when we welcomed our second little girl into the World.  It was a bit of a shock as we’d only just had our first – they are a year and 2 weeks apart.  I was desperate to record our memories and my diaries were failing me, so the blog was born.  It was the best way to have all our pictures, stories and adventures all in one place.

 

3. What does your blog focus on?

We do a lot of general life stuff – food, skin care, DIY, home decor, fashion and a little bit of travel, but all with a parenting focus.  Mostly because, well, we’re parents and being the Mom of 3 often affects the way we look at or do things. It’s about to take a hard travel focus though, as we set off in July on a tour around South Africa, Lestho, Swaziland, Mozambique and Namibia.

 

4. What tips can you give people to grow their blog audience?

Be you.  Talk about things that you love in a way that you feel is comfortable to you and like minded people will join in.  It’s easy to get lost in a land of numbers but it’s about sharing stories, relating to others and connecting.  Or for me anyway.

6. What exciting project do you have in the pipeline for your blog?

Definitely our trip up SA.  It’s going to be a huge adventure for our little family that hasn’t really ever ventured further than Paternoster.  Aside for the travel excitement, I’m also stoked to see how our family relationships grow over this time.  I’m sure we’re going to have many funny stories to tell along the way.

 

7. What is the funniest experience you have had with your blog?

Sadly I actually can’t think of one.  We’ve had a hell of a lot of laughs along the way but none of them are springing to mind!
