Hello! Happy Saturday to you 🙂 In my most recent blogging updates post (which you can go read here!), I shared that I’ll be doing Spotlight Saturday interviews every other weekend throughout the summer! It has been so much fun to continue learning more about other bloggers, because each one’s writing journey is so unique. I hope you enjoy today’s interview – this blogger, who I met pretty recently, always shares wonderful posts and is so sweet!
Spotlight Saturday #20
Introducing: the lovely …
1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
I started blogging because I’ve always been one of those people that scours the internet for anything and everything, I loved reading lifestyle post’s and short but sweet informative post’s so eventually I thought “how cool would it be if I started writing these?” and so one night I opened up WordPress on my laptop, made an account and it has become one of my absolute favorite things to do!
2. What are your hobbies and interests?
My hobbies include of course blogging, swimming, bullet journaling, and reading. I’m interested in a lot of things, but marine biology, makeup, and room decor/interior design are definitely my top 3.
3. What do you love writing posts about?
I love writing post’s about things that I feel interested people, most people post about what they like and what they would want to read–which I do, but I LOVE making post’s specifically for other people, which is why I make such diverse post’s, I want a blog that can interest everyone, not just myself. Whenever I see encouraging and positive comments on my post’s it always brings a smile to my face.
4. What’s a post that you enjoyed writing recently?
A post I recently enjoyed writing about would probably be my “summer recipes” post, I’ve never done a recipe post before so It was super fun to research and put together, I wanted to put recipes that anyone at any age could make, that wouldn’t be a handful or super expensive. I’ve enjoyed trying out those recipes and seeing others try them out as well, I can’t wait to put more post’s like this together!
5. What are a few of your biggest blogging goals
for the future?
A few blogging goals for the future I have are: I’d like to become self-hosted, I just recently hit 4k views so of course, I’d love to hit 5k, I would love to reach 500 followers before the end of this year (we’re so close!) and I hope to continue to grow and evolve my content!
6. Do you have any advice for new bloggers?
Please share it!
The advice I would give new bloggers would be to INTERACT!!! It is so important to not only put in work with your blog but also in the blogging community! The more love you give to other bloggers, the more love you get in return! Another piece of advice I’d give, is original, I know that’s hard since there is almost everything already done in the blogging community, but switch things up to make everything your own!
7. What are some post ideas
you’re excited to share soon?
Some post ideas I’m excited to share is a few traveling posts, and more mental awareness and life hack posts!
