Kate Baxter

PR & Blogger - Be More Hive

Kate Baxter started her blog Fabric of my Life back in 2009 and has been listed as one of The Times Online’s Top 50 Design Blogs in the World and described by The Telegraph as “one of the most successful interior Pinners”.

Not only that but she’s done it all as a sideline business to her day job in agency PR, developing and implementing communication strategies for independent design brands.

Straddling both sides of the industry, Kate has a multi-faceted skill-set that allows her to approach every campaign with a creative, big-picture perspective whether working with a small start-up business or an established industry player.

A born-and-bred Londoner, Kate recently relocated to the vibrant Northern city of Manchester, home to her lifelong love, Manchester United football club. Well on her way to becoming an honorary Mancunian, she spends her weekends exploring the city and its surroundings to hunt down all the best coffee spots, or enjoying the creature comforts of her new apartment.

Kate co-founded Be More Hive with Jess Sims with the intention of taking the brand / blogger conversation into a non-customer facing environment. Be More Hive will be rolling out education and discussion to improve the relationships in our industry.

At Blogtacular you can join Kate and Jess for a workshop on defining your blog’s persona to attract brands.

  • There have been a lot of posts about the press release from the CMA this week. Lots of them about ‘new’ influencer posting rules, some of them inaccurate or misleading. Have you heard something that worries you? We’re always happy to share knowledge and point you in the right direction so please ask if you need clarification. 
You know we’re big supporters of following the rules and clearly disclosing at the beginning of posts - it’s the only way to cement our reputation as an industry committed to transparency. But, as with all rules getting to grips with them isn’t always plain sailing. Our podcast episode 36 is a masterclass from the ASA themselves in how to keep your ads, gifts and products clear online. #blogtacular
