@younglondonist share their story & tips

Interview by KATHRYN CANE

Q1: How did you become a creator?

I worked in Journalism and Marketing, and after having a child I wanted to do something for myself, something that would fit in with my priorities, my interests and my child. So was born – an online magazine for young people and their families either living in or visiting London.

Q2: What inspires your posts?

London and everything it has to offer for families, from adventure playgrounds and forest schools to museums and art galleries, pop-ups and libraries. Also my toddler – I love how he gives me a new perspective on pretty much everything. And of course other parents.

Q3: What has been your biggest challenge as a creator?

Finding time to do everything. Instagram takes a lot of time, as does attending events, building relationships and also juggling family life.

Q4: And your biggest achievement?

We have made it to the first year. I have built some amazing relationships, met some wonderful people and been to some brilliant things. Most of which I would not have been able to do without

Q5: What would be your advice to anyone wanting to become a creator?

Just do it. Learn as you go along. And stick to something you love – it’s easier to create around a subject you are familiar with.

Q6: Your fave Instagram filter?

Oslo? Not sure really, I chop and change a lot.

Q7: Your fave Instagrammers?

A lot of the parenting folk like @dresslikeamum and @father_of_daughters but also @themotherloadhq and @tinytableofficial and @mothersmeetings.

Q8: Which camera/lighting techniques do you use?

I just try to get the best possible picture in the situation. Natural light is always best though.

Q9: What’s your hashtag strategy?

I don’t have a strategy as such – I just try to use 30 hashtags, and to chop and change them around a little bit. I wish I had more time to look into this really!

Q10: The best thing about being a creator is…

Working from home. Working around family. Doing what you love.
