Who Is Naomi?? Read about Our FEATURED VILLAGER

Janey Loree ~ “Who is Naomi? Tell us more about Diary From England!”

Naomi ~ “I’m a British born secretary and aspiring writer, currently working on my first book. I have lived in England all my life. My hobbies include writing, travel and dancing. Diary from England is an online journal covering the latest news, updates and information on life in England. A wide range of diverse and interesting topics are covered to attract a wide readership. I also have useful information and links on my blog for anyone planning to visit England in the future. I only set up my blog in January last year but I have already attracted a lot of interest. Some readers are people who hail from England originally and like to read news from their homeland. Others are just curious to hear what goes on in another country of the world apart from their own! A lot of people have e-mailed me to say how much they enjoy their visits to Diary From England, which is great. After losing my dad to cancer, I have also recently set up a charity initiative so that anybody who enjoys their visit to Diary from England can show their appreciation by making a donation to a cancer charity. It could save a life.”

Janey Loree ~ “What prompted you to start blogging in the first place?”

Naomi ~ “I saw a few blogs when I was surfing and thought it would be good to start one myself. I thought it would be good to have a little space on the worldwide web and somewhere to practise my writing skills. I always think life is for living and I always try to live my life to the full and enjoy every day. I enjoy meeting new people and trying new things. Setting up my blog, "Diary from England" was a challenge and a whole new adventure for me. Its been a lot of fun and I'm learning new things every day. I'm also building up a good readership of many people from all over the world which is great!”

Janey Loree ~ “When do you do your blog reading?”

Naomi ~ “I don’t have that much spare time as I hold down a full-time job and am working on a book as well! But when I do, (usually at weekends), I do most of my blog reading at Blog Village. It’s a great community of good quality blogs covering a wide variety of topics.”

Janey Loree ~ “Where did you hear about BLOG VILLAGE?”

Naomi ~ “I saw the Blog Village banner on a number of blogs I looked at, so I went over to have a look and decided to join myself. I really enjoy being a member of Blog Village. It’s a nice community of friendly people over there. I have made a few cyberfriends whilst being a member.”

Janey Loree ~ “Why do you blog? Is your blog personal, business, etc?”

Naomi ~ “My blog is personal. I use it as my little soapbox on all the latest happenings in England! I’ve always loved writing and I’m in my element when I’m writing posts for my blog. Writing on my blog gives me a real buzz. I find it very relaxing and a good way to unwind after a busy day at work.”

Janey Loree ~ “How often do you post and how many blogs do you maintain?”

Naomi ~ “I try to post two or three times a week and just maintain the one blog:- Come over and visit me soon! Thanks for taking the time and trouble to interview me Janey.”

You are most welcome Naomi. Since I first interviewed Naomi, (back in January) I have developed a cyber friendship with her. Her blog is filled with great posts about health issues, the Queen, the English Bobby, English news as well as taking the time to post a couple of articles that helped me out with research for a couple of our paperdolls! I am even more partial to Diary From England now that Naomi is our International Correspondent from England!! Drop by and tell her that you read her interview on the BLOG VILLAGE News!!!

If you would like to be interviewed email me at Keep in mind that there are several interviews ahead of you so your interview will not be posted right away. At this point in time, look forward to interviews from Janie over at Colloquium, Lynda at Pilates & Reiki in Paradise, Granimore at Funeralis, and Bill at Recovery Addiction Basics.

Great to have Naomi as the Featured Villager.

I have been a frequent visitor to "Diary from England" for quite a while now. Originally visited due to England being the land of my birth but afterwards because I so enjoy her posts.

I look forward to your future interviews Janey.

I enjoy Janey Loree's interviews, too, Jackie. I started reading Naomi's blog because my mother's people were from England. I like being able to get her take on things in the news, instead of depending on our news in the US.

Like I said in the interview, I am partial to Naomi and her Diary From England!!! I found myself checking out Naomi's blog for her take on the Queen's visit to the United States!!! Her posts are very well written and we need to encourage her to let us peek at some of her writings... :)

Hi Naomi,
Glad to see you are a featured member as you have a great blog. Thanks for voting for me recently and the nice comment. Yes, my ranking is rather dismal. I meant to vote for myself right now and somehow ranked myself 0. LOL I will have to be more careful next time. Take care
