What inspired you to start blogging?
Myself and my boyfriend started blogging when we were travelling, mainly to tell our friends and family how we were getting on and put up our photos. I really enjoyed it and decided to start Tales from a Teapot. I write about my crafty pursuits, green living and everyday adventures. I like taking pictures and telling visual stories.
How did you come up with the name of your blog?
Tales from a teapot is meant to represent all the stories told over a a steaming pot of tea.
What is your favorite blog that you like to read?
There are many. I have recently started using Blog Lovin as well as the WordPress Reader to keep track of them. I love Her Library Adventures, Whole Larder Love and One Sheepish Girl, as well as the blogs in the blog roll at the bottom of the page (although this need to be updated, I have discovered more lovelies since).
Tell us about your dream job.
I want to work in something I care about such as environment, sustainability, international development, poverty alleviation or gender equality. I am currently interning with Re-dress an amazing organisation looking at human rights and environmental impact in the fashion industry. I am working on their social media so don’t forget to like their facebook page!
Is your glass half full or half empty?
Mainly half full, although I have moments of despair when I think about the unsustainable path we are following at the moment and the massive and growing inequalities that exist.
If you could go anywhere for a week’s holiday where would it be?
After travelling the world I am looking to stay close to home for the next while. I love County Clare and want to visit soon. I also want to West Cork on a cycling holiday.
What food can you absolutely not eat?
I am avoiding fish at the moment because of the problems with overfishing.
Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
How much time do you spend blogging?
It depends. I try and post twice a week and it takes about three hours or more to get a post together.
Do you watch TV – if so what are some of your favourite TV shows?
I don’t really watch TV. I hate soaps but am trying to watch an Irish language soap a couple of times a week to improve my Irish. I do watch films and box sets and am watching New Girl with one of my sisters and West Wing with my boyfriend.
This was really difficult and there were other blogs I also wanted to include, but I stuck to the ten rule! My Sunshine Awards go to:
