Meet The Blogger Behind The Blog - Ranting Gran

Welcome to today's guest post as part of our Meet The Blogger series, today we have Yvette. Please read all about her and get to know her, you will find links in the post of how to follow her and her adventures in blogging.

What is your blog called?

How long have you been blogging?
7 months self-hosted but I did about 6 moths on Blogspot prior to that

What is your blog niche?
I don’t really have a niche I just blog about whatever I feel like at the time, I did start out with the plan of a marketing niche as that’s what I have a degree in, but I am a little bi polar so never stick to plans

Why do you blog?
I don’t really like going out to socialize so I enjoy feeling part of the big blogger community, where I can interact as little or often as I want

What made you start blogging?
When I was in uni I needed to keep a blog about the buyer behaviour process as part of an assignment, I enjoyed it so much I decided to start blogging regularly.

How long did you have your blog before you started to tell people that you had it?
Months, I used my blogspot as more of a personal diary than anything else, I had the self-hosted one for a while before I shared, I still feel very odd sharing with people I know.

Who is your most famous Twitter follower?
I did have Peter Andre for a while as he gave me some merchandise for a charity I was working with, but that was before I blogged and he doesn’t seem to be on there any more

Buffer or Hootsuite?
Neither still a blogging pup, seems like every day there’s new things to use

What is your best blogging achievement?
A friend shared one of my very tongue in cheek posts about domestic abuse and a lady messaged me to say her friend had been staying with her for a few weeks after being beaten by her husband but she was just about to return to the very apologetic pig, but after reading my post she decided not to go back and is now doing quite well making a new life for herself.

Have you ever had a fail with a blog post like not noticing a typo?
Yes lots, I tend to type then post without reading, so had lots of typos L

Have you ever sent the wrong email to a PR, or misread it and sent the wrong reply?
This is another thing I do all the time, I speed read things then reply and after realise the reply isn’t suitable. Just the other day I was puzzled as to how you respond to a mail that said “thank you love you too” luckily it said “thank you love, you too” lol.

Where can the readers find you?

Where's the weirdest place you have blogged from?
Still a blogging pup so not really done much blogging from weird places, I suppose a wigwam is the weirdest.

Have you ever met any celebrities through your blog?
Not through the blog, but I have met Usher, Labyrinth, Nicole Scherzinger, Fleur East, Amanda Holden, Michael Macintyre, The Hoff, Kelly Hoppam, probably more but can't think of any.

Where do you see your blog in 1 years time?
In a position to answer all your questions lol

Where do you see your blog in 10 years time?
It would be nice to be in a position to advise and help other people

What is the favourite blog post that you have ever written?
I don’t really like my own posts but I suppose it would be either the first post about me and one of my usual odd and very surreal experiences or the post that encouraged the lady to leave her abusive partner, lots of people don’t really get this post, but people who have had to live with sociopaths tell me it’s a description of that person, and writing it helped me release lots of tension after my daughters failed court case.
