Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Spotlight Saturday! I’m so happy to get to share these interviews with you guys, as they’re a joy to write, and the people I’m having the opportunity to interview are pretty awesome! If you ever have any questions for the blogger I’ve featured, feel free to ask them in the comments below; they’d be happy to talk to you!
So, this series is a way for me to spread the word about the wonderful bloggers out there. With short, fun interviews that I do with them, we give you a chance to get to know them and their blogs a little better. Even if you’re already following them, I’m sure that it would still be nice to read! You can get more of a feel for who they are and what their blogs are all about.

Spotlight Saturday #3
Hi everyone! Thank you for coming by this week’s Spotlight Saturday. I have someone very special to introduce to you today – she’s a lovely newlywed, a daily blogger, and an early childhood teacher! Please welcome Angela from lifeofangela!!!
Hello fellow readers of Maggie’s blog! Thank you for asking me to take part, I’m so excited to get into this!
You’re very welcome! I’m happy to get to interview you today. So first off, tell us a little bit about yourself. What are some of your interests and hobbies?
Okay, let’s see. Interests and hobbies. I watch a lot of TV shows. I can binge watch them in very few sittings. I also love to play games, mostly on my PC. Sims is my favourite. I also enjoy doing crafts. Like cross stitch, jigsaw puzzles, and I really enjoy colouring books. Blogging has been my favourite hobby as of late. I’ve also always been into photography a bit. I’m no professional, but lately I’ve been really focusing on trying to take the best photo I can. I only have my phone at the moment, but I would love to invest in a proper camera one day.
Those are all awesome! I love photography, as well. I’m looking forward to the day I can afford a DSLR! Now, I’d like to know some more about your blog. What are your favorite things to post about, and what are you looking forward to posting in the future?
I love posting about anything and everything, really. But let me try to narrow it down. My favourite things to post about are of my travels, personal life, and those tags/awards. I love sharing my experience of where I’ve been, and that I get to look through all my pictures and memories, and write it all down in a blog post. Same with taking about my personal life. I love sharing tidbits of my life with Rory, and with my family. Last of all, I also love sitting down and answering questions about myself, does that sound weird? It’s like my own way of getting to know myself better, I think about my answers for a long time, then I just ramble out my answer. It’s a lot of fun. As for the future, I am excited to post about future travels. I really want to visit Milford Sound in the South Island at some point this year. As well as whatever is in store for Rory and I in the future, like possibly buying a house in the next year. That would be really cool.
That’s wonderful! I love all the focuses of your blog; getting to read a variety of posts from the same blogger is great, because then fellow blog readers can get to know you better! So, I know that you’ve been running lifeofangela for a couple of months now. What have you loved about getting to meet other bloggers all across WordPress?
It’s only been two months since I started daily blogging. At first I didn’t really know how this platform worked. I got a few likes on my first post, so I followed them to their blog and saw what they posted. That’s how I first discovered how amazing other blogs are. Each one is so unique and different. Some have themes, some are like me and just share their thoughts. Then I discovered tags and the Daily Post and thing snowballed from there. I still love finding and discovering blogs. I love looking at the pictures and reading stories from people around the world. I feel like we can be more open about ourselves here. There’s that sense of security and safety about doing all this from the comfort of your home or wherever you blog from.
I feel the same way – and I absolutely love getting to connect with people all around the world. 🙂 So, out of all the posts you’ve written so far, what are a few of your favorites?
I have quite a few favourite posts. Trip of a Lifetime is one. It’s the beginning of my Peru Adventures series. That is still my favourite trip I have ever done. Our Wedding is another favourite for obvious reasons! Honeymooning through Food is another good one, because all the food we had was amazing! The last one I’ll say is I’m Getting My First Tattoo (Part 2). I was really excited and happy with it!
Those all sound exciting! I’ll have to look into those posts for myself. My last question before we finish up this interview is this: what are two reasons why you’d like for people to come follow lifeofangela today?
Two reasons. Okay, First, I update daily (sometimes more than once if I’m really excited about something), so there’s always something new for you to read. It’s often a surprise, because I don’t plan these things out most of the time, but I hope they’re enjoyable to read! They’re also on a range of topics since I have never-ending interests haha. Second, I really love finding new blogs to read and support. Every like, comment or even follow I get, I will probably follow you back to your own blog and have a look around XD At first, I went through tags to discover new blogs, but over the past few weeks, I’ve been in a lucky position that new people keep finding my stuff, so now I’m constantly finding new people and blogs! It takes me ages every day to read all of them, but I’m having so much fun doing it!
I also love catching up on all the new posts my favorite bloggers publish – including yours! Thank you for letting me interview you today; I very much enjoyed writing it and learning more about you. Is there anything you’d like to tell my readers before we go?
Just that I hope everyone is having a good morning, noon or night or whenever you’re reading this 😀
Same here! Thanks for reading, everyone. I hope that your day is going great. 🙂
Thank you all so much for reading! It would make both of us very happy if you could visit her blog for yourself. She is a very sweet daily blogger, and she would love to talk to you in the comments sections of her posts!
Have an awesome Saturday, everyone!
