Blog Spotlight with Kate Davis-Holmes, editor of The Naked Mum blog

Mums fear nothing and bare all in today's Blog Spotlight. Founder and editor Kate Davis-Holmes gives us an insight into her blogging career. 

Tell us about The Naked Mum Blog

Naked Mum is a blog with a philosophy around encouraging mums to value themselves more and to be proactive about changing their lives for the better. 

How do you source content for your blog?

I write a lot of it myself.  I also have a feature once a month where a mum gets naked (think Calendar Girls!) and tells her story.  Once a week, I feature charities and good causes of interest to mums and families.  I also like to do reviews and accept sponsored posts.

Do you like to write reviews? How many people read your reviews?

I love writing reviews.  I have a strong following who check out my reviews (almost 4000 followers on Twitter and around 5500 pageviews per month and growing.

How did you build a following for your blog?

I built a following by using social media and both blogging and mum networks. I have a reputation for being honest and supporting others so there is a great deal of trust in my blog.  I was nominated for a Brilliance in Blogging Award last year (I am ineligible this year as I do social media freelancing for BritMums who run the awards).  I am on the list of the top ten outstanding bloggers in the MAD awards run by Tots100.  I write for the BritMums website so people sometimes find me via that route.

Are you a PR friendly blog?

Yes. I love working with PRs.

How best do you like to be approached by PRs?

Via email initially and with some indication that they have an awareness of what I write about.

Marmite: Love or hate?

Marmite is like my blog – you either love it or hate it.  I hate Marmite but I hope you love my blog and get naked!
