Hi guys! I hope that you’re all having a beautiful weekend. (: I have a fun interview to share with you today! This is the first one that I’ve done in a few weeks, and I had a great time interviewing this amazing blogger! I hope you all enjoy! ❤
Spotlight Saturday #17
Hey everyone! Thank you for coming by this week’s Spotlight Saturday. 🙂 Today, I have the opportunity to write an interview with a lovely blogger that I have known for a short while. She shares posts on her travels, doodles she had drawn, and other little lifestyle posts, as well! I am happy to introduce to all of you the writer behind the blog Oxria!
Hi everyone! I hope you’re all well! Thank you so much for offering me this great opportunity, Maggie! I love your Spotlight Saturday series and it makes me so happy to be part of it! I never thought I’d be interviewed one day, which is why I’m really excited to answer your questions!
You’re welcome! I’m so happy about interviewing you. xx These spotlight posts are always so much fun! My first question for you is, why did you decide to start Oxria?
To be completely honest: I was bored, haha. I had nothing exciting going on, and I thought blogging would be a fun thing to do. I also liked the idea of having an online diary where I could share my memories, experiences and doodles with others. So I decided to create Oxria – a place where I could do all these things. And it was one of the best decisions ever. Blogging is a part of my life now, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
Hahaha I began my blog for much the same reason! Blogging is a great boredom buster. 🙂 I’m so happy that you joined the blogging world! The next thing I’d like to know is, what are some of your favorite things to write posts about?
Aw, thank you! I’m glad that I joined the blogging world too. It’s such a happy place!
I blog about many things: art, travel, fashion, beauty, lifestyle… and I really enjoy writing about all of them. My favourite ones though, are the travel-diaries, as I love the fact that I can always go back, read the post and relive the experience, and the fashion related posts, because I really enjoy putting cute outfits together. 😀
You’re welcome! It certainly is. 🙂 Those all sound great! I love reading (and writing) travel posts, as well; they’re a great way to transport back to a particular time and place! Fashion posts (especially yours!!) are a lot of fun, as well. Can you share a few posts with us that you enjoyed writing recently?
Aww I loved those, as well! I still need to check out the last one you mentioned, though. It sounds wonderful! Also, I was wondering, how did you come up with your blog name – Oxria? I love how unique it is!
Thank you :)!
Oxria is a nickname I created one or two years ago, out of boredom, by combining my first and middle name. And when I decided to start the blog, I thought it would be the best name for it. (Speaking of blog names, I also love yours!!)
Thank you so much! And you’re welcome. ❤ haha I love that! I’ve never thought about combining my names. I don’t think they’d make a cool combination like yours do, though, lol! My next question for you is, do you have any blogging advice you’d like to share with other bloggers?
Aw, I’m sure they would though, haha! ❤ and hmm… advice…
I’m not a pro at blogging, in fact I still consider myself a beginner when it comes to it, but if I had to share some advice with other beginner bloggers, it would be: be yourself (as cliché as it may sound), because being different is a good thing and your personality may be the reason why people choose to follow you, and have fun – write about anything you like and make friends with other bloggers! I think these two things are very important if you want blogging to be a fun activity! 🙂
” … being different is a good thing and your personality may be the reason why people choose to follow you.”
Awesome advice! Authenticity is so important as a blogger, as is writing about what you love! xx The next thing I’d like to ask you is, what are your plans and goals for Oxria in the future? (Posts you’d like to write, milestones you want to reach, etc.)
Ooh, this is a big question.
I don’t really plan things when it comes to blogging, but I do have some things I want to achieve. For instance, I want to write more travel-diaries, lookbooks and lifestyle posts in the future – because they’re my favourite ones to write, and they’re really fun :). Another goal for the future would be doing giveaways, to thank my followers for being awesome (+ I really enjoy buying gifts for others, haha).
It’s always fun to keep up with series / types of posts that we have fun doing! Our readers enjoy it, and we love writing it, as well. 🙂 Aw giveaways sounds great! I have yet to do one myself, but I still love the idea. Thank you so much for letting me interview you, Oxria! This has been so much fun. Is there anything else you’d like to say to my readers before we go?
Thank you for having me on your blog! I still can’t believe you gave me this amazing opportunity! ❤
I’d like to thank your readers for taking time to read this interview. I hope you guys got to know who this “Oxria” is a little better, haha. If you want to, feel free to check out my blog and see if you like it. I’d love to know what you think of it! Thanks again Maggie and I hope you all have a great day! 😀
Thank you so much for reading this Spotlight Saturday, guys! Oxria is such a fun blogger, and I highly recommend that you check out her blog! She writes posts on her travels, shares fashion lookbooks, and snippets of her beautiful doodles!
