I always like connecting with you guys, and getting to know more about you, so today I thought it was about time I answered any questions you guys might have about me, my life, or this blog! So in order to collect your questions, I gathered questions from Twitter and Tumblr, and I’m answering them today! I’ve organised all of the questions into categories below.
Which of your posts is your favourite?
I have different favourites for different reasons. Such as I prefer how some look over others, but I enjoyed writing other ones more. But I think an all-rounder for me is The Truth Behind Being A Journalism Student.
What are your personal favourite methods/platforms for gaining and keeping a loyal blog following?
I obviously signed up for Bloglovin’ shortly after creating my blog, but I don’t really have any particular methods for this. I share my content on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and occasionally Instagram. For me, discovering new blogs means I simply scroll through the WordPress tags from time to time and comment on and ‘like’ new blogs, so I’m consistently meeting new blogs and bloggers.
What do you find toughest about blogging?
Like all creative things, you go through bouts of seemingly unending inspiration and motivation, only to then be stopped in your tracks by a lack of inspiration. I do really enjoy every aspect of it, but that can leave me feeling a bit down on occasion. I also sometimes struggle with my personal life affecting how I feel, and therefore what I spend my time doing, but lately this blog has been a nice escape and has given me purpose.
What is your blogging set up?
Luckily, I have an entire post showing you my writing set up! My camera set up varies from post to post though, depending on the style of post, I may need a tripod, and even an extra pair of hands. Most of the time it is just me and the camera, repeatedly taking pictures from slightly differing angles.
If you could re-live a memory as many times as you wanted at the touch of a button, what memory would you choose?
I’m so lucky to have so many memories that I would absolutely love to relive, but if I had to choose just one, it would be tied between either my 18th birthday, or the day we went to go and get Sawyer and Milo.
What has been your favourite dyed hair colour?
Dark brown with purple ends. I adored that style, length and colour! It’s just a big commitment because it requires re-dyeing roughly every 3-4 weeks so it’s not very practical or economic.
Have you ever read a book/seen a film that changed how you see things in life?
Bee Movie. I mean seriously. But also About Time. It just made me realise that sometimes during the day you need to step back and appreciate even the smallest things that might normally annoy you, because without them, we wouldn’t be living. We’d just be rushing through life, existing.
Favourite flavour ice cream?
If you could be any celebrity for one day, who would you be?
If you could invite 4 famous people to a dinner party, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Michael Jackson, Derren Brown, Katy Perry and the creator of the chicken nugget. MJ just to share my appreciation and love for him. DB because I could talk for hours about literally anything with him. KP because she’s a gem and an all around lovely gal, and the creator of the chicken nugget to thank them, duh.
What super power would you have and what would you do with it?
I would have the superpower to be able to actually read minds. It’d take a lot of the challenge and time out of it currently.
And that’s it for this Q&A! Thank you to those of you that sent me questions, I really enjoyed answering these and putting this post together, so if you guys have any other questions for me, you can send them to me at any time either via Twitter, or my Tumblr.
