Hi guys! How is your Saturday going so far? I’m off to some different stores today, and maybe the library, as well (I’m always going there it seems, ahaa). I probably won’t get books to do a library book sale haul again any time soon, but hey, you never know, and that post was really fun to write, hehe.
Anyway, back to the focus of this post! The girl I interviewed for today’s spotlight is such a sweetheart – it brought me joy to interview her! I hope you have fun reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it! ❤
Welcome to this week’s Spotlight Saturday, everyone! Thanks for dropping by. Today, I’m interviewing a very sweet girl whom I recently met in the blogging world – I’m so glad that we found each other’s blogs! Please welcome Jirah from Jirah Merizz!
Ahh thank you so much for thinking about featuring me in your Spotlight Saturdays! I really love this series and I’m so glad to be a part of it. Thank you so much, Maggie! You’re so lovely!
Aw, you’re welcome! I’m looking forward to interviewing you today. First, I’d like to know a bit more about you! Tell us about yourself.
Thank you so much and hi everyone! I am Jirah Merizz and I blog about variant topics– it could be a little bit about life, beauty, books, Christianity and adventures.
That sounds so cool, Jirah! Your Christianity posts are my personal favorite 🙂 So, out of all the posts you’ve written so far, do you have a few that you love the most? Why are they your favorites?
Awh thank you! I adore your Christianity posts too and your calling! So far, my favourite post that I’ve ever written is my “Yesterday’s Outfit” and “My Favourite Bible Verses“. I really love my “Yesterday’s Outfit” post because it was the first time I’ve posted an outfit in my blog and I’m glad I gained courage to post that. “My Favourite Bible Verses” is my absolute favourite too because it was so fun editing those typographies– I also gained Christian friends by it which makes me so happy. ❤
The outfit post is such a great one! And I love all the Bible verses you shared on that other post, as well 🙂 My next question is, what inspires you to blog?
Since I came back from a very good youth camp which talked about God, then I’ll definitely say that God’s love inspires me to blog and to do everything in my every day life. Of course, my family also inspires me and the other thing that really inspires me is that I want to share my life with other bloggers and readers out there. We all have an amazing life and it’s our thought that matters. ❤ My co-bloggers are a huge inspiration to me as well.
Those are all great inspirations! I am definitely motivated to blog from all of them, as well. My next question is, if you could give three pieces of advice to an aspiring blogger, or to someone who has just recently joined the blogging world, what would they be?
- First of all, you should blog about what you really love. Don’t blog about beauty because you think it gets the most views and that’s the same about books, life and any other category. Blog about it because you’re passionate about it.
- My second advice would be find a perfect time to publish your post. You can arrange a schedule but honestly, just write when you feel like you wanted to write and share something. Do not procrastinate (though it’s my thing aha) because if you did, it will be shown in the post.
- The third one– if you want to gain more traffic and audiences, spend a lot of time searching for new bloggers. There are so many bloggers out there and they can help you. If you want to gain like 10 followers in a particular day, then search up to 30 blogs because not everyone you follow will follow you back. 🙂 And don’t ever say that “please follow back” because bloggers definitely don’t like it.
Great advice, Jirah! Thank you for sharing them with us. Next, I’d like to know: what are your favorite things to do when you’re not blogging?
So when I’m not blogging, I’m either journalling, reading a book or I’m outside. I spend a lot of time blogging and I can literally spend time in WordPress all day but I gotta rest my eyes though. Aha. And oh, I’m also learning Italian when I’m not blogging. 🙂
That’s great. Oh I love doing all of those things, too! Well, except learning Italian, haha. Hopefully one day! Thank you so much for letting me interview you, Jirah. Is there anything else you’d like to tell my readers before we go?
Hi to everyone who reads Maggie’s blog! I want to let you all know that you are amazing and whatever you’re going through right now, you can surpass it all. Always trust the Lord in everything and He will make your paths straight! Maggie has such an amazing blog and she’s really lovely, so thank you so much, Maggie, for interviewing me.
Thank you all so much for reading! It would make both of us very happy if your could visit her blog for yourself. She writes about different adventures she goes on, as well as her faith, style, and other interests!
