Spotlight Saturday – Kelsey from kelseywritess

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!

Happy reading!

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!


Thank you so much for reading! If you’d like to go check out Kelsey’s blog for yourself, just click here. I love seeing her posts pop up in my Reader – she writes frequently, which is awesome! Let me know in the comments below:

Spotlight Saturday – Brad from Total Bradness

Hi there, and Happy June to you! I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend. ❤ I have a very exciting post to share with you today! While thinking through how I’d like to blog throughout June, as well as the whole of the summer, I have decided on two different things. The first one is that I will still be blogging every other day in June, and the second one is very exciting: I’m doing Spotlight Saturday posts again! The last one I did before today was in December (featuring Gracie, go check her out!), and I absolutely miss doing them now. That’s why I’ll be doing one every other Saturday throughout the summer! (And maybe into the fall, as well!)

I’m very happy to share this week’s spotlight with you. It features an absolutely amazing blogger that I’m so happy to have met on WordPress! I hope you enjoy!

Spotlight Saturday #19

Introducing: the awesome
Brad from Total Bradness!

Hello, everyone! My name is Brad and I am a homeschooled inspirational lifestyle blogger that lives in Southwestern Ontario, Canada! I have my own blog called ‘Total Bradness!’ I post about me and my life, but also recommend amazing products and take you around the world where you can learn all about things you never knew about!

Discover places on earth you didn’t know existed, animals you’ve never heard of, and take quizzes to see how well you know me! I try to make sure my blog is fun, interesting, and fascinating!

Every Friday, you’re guaranteed to learn something new! #FascinatingFriday! I love interacting with and helping people and hope to be a Real Estate Agent when I am older! I have 5 brothers and 1 sister and am blessed to have so many siblings!

One day, I hope to build my dream log home on the lake with an indoor pool! I love trampoline, volleyball, hockey, biking, swimming, blogging, drones, Adventures in Odyssey, photography, and hanging out with my family! I hope you enjoy this post I did with Maggie!


1. Why does blogging make you happy?

Thank you for asking, Maggie! Blogging has made me happy because it has allowed me to meet incredible people and make awesome friends as well as to share things that I find interesting and fascinating! I love interacting with people and getting to know their interests and love when someone finds my post helpful or interesting.

2. What are your blogging goals?

My goals as a blogger are to inspire, encourage, and help others! I love finding simple ways to make life better and more enjoyable! I really like to show people things that I find really fascinating and extraordinary and that I think others would enjoy seeing as well!

3. Which blogging niche do you identify with?

Probably an inspirational lifestyle blog. I love posting inspirational quotes, recommending products that people will really love and probably have no idea exist, show people cool things and places around the world, but also posting about things going on in my life that people would find interesting and exciting!

4. Which post of yours is your personal favourite?
Tell us about it!

Ooh, that is such a hard question!! I really liked doing my post on a house for sale for $250,000,000! The home is a 41,000 sqft luxury estate in California that has 17 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, 3 gourmet kitchens, five bars, a massage studio/wellness spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, 85-foot glass tile infinity swimming pool, 40-seat 4K Dolby Atmos Theater, four-lane bowling alley/lounge, sprawling auto gallery with cars valued at more than $30 million, private golf course, seven-person full time staff, over 100 curated art installations, an outdoor hydraulic pop-up theater, two fully-stocked champagne/wine cellars, massive assorted candy wall and the most advanced home tech system in the country. CRAZINESS! It was one of my most enjoyable posts, and it left people in awe!

5. If you could change one thing about your blog, what would you want to be different?

I would love to have my own official domain! I hope to get that eventually. 😊

6. Do you have any posts coming up that you’re excited to share? What are they?

YOU BET!!! I am going on a vacation in June to a lakefront cottage, and am going to do a post or two about the trip! You’ll get a tour of the cottage! But, EVEN BETTER, I am flying to Florida in July!! I will be flying for the first time in my life and am going to make some cool posts about the trip! You’ll get a tour of my trip including cool places I stopped at and some awesome photography! I am stopping at the worlds largest airport in Atlanta, Georgia! My posts on that trip I’m super excited to do! This will also give me a wonderful opportunity to recommend things to people, which I love doing! I could introduce some travel life hacks and tips for flying, and essentials you should bring on a vacation! I really enjoy helping people and making their life more fun, interesting, and enjoyable!

7. Why are you blogging?

Great question! I started blogging because I wanted to meet new people and make new friends, but also because I wanted to share with people interesting things and places around the world, offer lifestyle tips and life hacks, and recommend amazing products and services that people don’t know about! I love interacting with and getting to know my followers! I will often have a lot more comments than likes on my posts because I enjoy hearing from and interacting with people and getting their opinions on my posts! I get to know them and get them involved in my blog so that it is not just me making up posts and hitting publish, but I create the posts with the ideas and interests of my followers in mind! Without having a lot of friends, blogging has introduced me to some amazing people and has given me the chance I wanted to help and inspire others! I never plan on stopping blogging.


Thank you so much for doing this with me, Brad! You did an amazing job with your answers! 🙂 If you guys would like to check out Brad’s blog for yourself, I definitely think you should! It’s an amazing site full of a huge variety of content. My favorite posts of his are the Fascinating Fridays and I Wonder Wednesdays! They’re always interesting and very fun to read!

Have a great weekend!

Spotlight Saturday – Gracie from Through the Eyes of Gracie

Spotlight Saturday – Gracie from Through the Eyes of Gracie

Hey guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful weekend. x Today, I’m happy to share with you today a new interview that I recently wrote with one of the nicest bloggers I know! I hope you all enjoy!

~~~~

Spotlight Saturday #18

Hey everyone! Thank you for coming by this Spotlight Saturday post. ❤ This week, I have gotten to interview a lovely blogger that I met last month. She writes about her life, such as photography, crafts, and her other hobbies! Please welcome Gracie from Through the Eyes of Gracie!

Hello everyone!! I am very excited to be a part of Maggie’s lovely blog!! This should be super fun!

Yes, definitely! I can’t wait to get started (: Let’s begin with this first question: Why did you decide to start your blog, Through the Eyes of Gracie?

Good question, haha. Well, over a year ago I found my friend Sophie’s blog and thought it would be fun to start a blog, and post crafts so I started Craft Time I posted occasionally, but not very often. Then this past August I started posting more often. But mostly photography and everyday life, so I decided to change my blog name a month or so ago, and that is where I am at now. 🙂

That’s awesome! I love it when friends and family inspire us to try something new. 🙂 Blogging is such a wonderful experience! My next question for you is, what are your favorite kinds of posts to write? And can you share some posts you shared recently that fall under those categories?

My favorite posts to write are DIY, photography, tags, and life…wow, haha. That is basically my blog summed up, haha. I just really enjoy blogging, no matter what it is. 🙂

Hehe same!! I love writing a variety of posts, as well. Those are all great posts that you’ve shared! Your ‘Thankful For Photography Challenge’ was a lot of fun to follow along with. ❤ Here’s my next question: what inspires and motives you to blog?

Thanks! I am not sure, I would probably have to say, my followers. I have many awesome followers, and they are all so encouraging in what I am blogging about! ❤

You’re welcome! And that’s wonderful 🙂 Followers are such an encouragement. ❤ Do you have any blogging advice you’d like to share with other bloggers?

Yes. It is kinda common advice but, DO NOT get discouraged if you don’t have a ton of followers, it will happen! Also …

” … even if you don’t have lots of followers, post like you do, because one day you will, and then you will already have great posts for them to read!”

That’s really good advice! It’s discouraging for most bloggers at first, but if you’re consistent in posting and reaching out to bloggers, they will come! ❤ Now that we know a good amount about your blog, tell us about yourself! What are some of your hobbies and interests? Why do you love them?

I am really into photography, blogging (obviously), violin, and crafting. I love photography because it helps you capture the beauty of God’s creations! I’ve kinda already told why I like blogging. I have wanted to play the violin for years, then a few years ago my Dad’s parents found a violin at GoodWill!! I was so excited, I did not get lesson until a year or so after that. I have been playing for about a year and a half now. 🙂 As you can probably tell, I am a very artist-y girl, I love being creative and expressing that!

Ooh those all sound amazing! What a wonderful way to begin playing the violin. I love surprise finds at thrift stores! It always makes my day! ❤ Aw I’m the same way! Being artistic and creative is so much fun. Here’s my next question for you: Why are you thankful for blogging?

I am thankful for blogging because it allows me to shows others DIYs, photography, and encourage other blogger and readers. But, most importantly, show the love of Jesus Christ.

Amen! Those are all beautiful reasons to enjoy blogging. Thank you so much for letting me interview you, Gracie! I really enjoyed this. 🙂 xx

Thank you. That was so much fun!!

Spotlight Saturday #17

Hey guys! Welcome back to my Spotlight Saturday series. ❤ This week, I’m getting to interview a lovely blogger I know who has an absolutely fantastic blog! She writes about all of the different occasions and events that go on in her hometown of Hull, England – please welcome Amelia, the writer from Amelia in Hull!

Hi guys!! I’m so honoured that I get to be interviewed by the amazing Maggie for Spotlight Saturday!! It’s such a good series idea and I can’t wait to answer all the questions for the interview.

Thank you for accepting the invitation! I’m looking forward to doing this with you. 🙂 The first question I’d like to ask you is: what inspired you to start Amelia in Hull?

I’ve always loved to write from a very young age so my parents encouraged me to write a blog where I could write a post every single week about Hull being City of Culture 2017. Also, I wanted to be able to show people how amazing my home city Hull is.

Aww that is so cool! I’ve never thought about blogging about the area where I live, but I’m sure that it would get me so much more interested in its history and current events! So, what are some of the main topics you like to write posts for on your blog?

I do quite a lot of reviews on events or independent cafes I’ve been to in the area in and around Hull. I do some travel posts as well and some history of Hull posts about famous people from Hull or interesting history events that occurred in Hull.

That’s great! Oh, I love your historical posts; they’re my personal favorite of yours. 🙂 What are two different posts that you enjoyed writing recently?

Awww thank you so much!! I would have to say ‘One day Maybe’ Event post and ‘Turner Prize’ event because although these posts took a little longer to write, I really enjoyed writing about them.

Those are great ones! Sometimes, it’s the posts that take more time to write that are the most fun.. 🙂 My next question for you is, what have you learned about blogging during your time on WordPress? (Any helpful tips or tricks?)

I’ve learnt that you should focus on your own blog and what works for you instead of falling into the trap of constantly comparing yourself to other people. Also you can’t expect to get loads of followers all at once when you first start blogging; you’ll gradually gain followers over time as your blog progresses and grows.

You need to focus on writing about things you’re passionate about. 

Great tips, Amelia! Thank you so much for letting me interview you; I’ve really enjoyed this. 🙂 Is there anything more you’d like to say to my readers before we go?

Thank you Maggie for this great opportunity to be interviewed for your spotlight Saturday series and thank you to your readers for reading this interview!! If you like the sound of it, please feel free to check out my blog!!


Thank you so much for reading, guys!! We really enjoyed writing this interview. If you would like to check out Amelia’s blog for yourself, where she writes about her wonderful hometown of Hull, you can click the button below!

Happy Saturday!

Spotlight Saturday – Oxria

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 #16

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!

doodle by Oxria!

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?

Sure!

Some of my favourite ones that I’ve recently written are the Black Sea travel diary, the Bullet Journal one and my latest post, Summer vs fall wardrobe. They were all really fun to write! 😊

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!

Happy Saturday, everyone! Let me know in the comments below:

Spotlight Saturday #14

Hey everyone! Thank you for coming by this week’s spotlight(: For this Saturday, I had the wonderful chance to interview a very sweet blogger whom I’ve had the pleasure of knowing for most of the time I’ve had this blog! She writes all about fashion, her travels, and other inspiration … please welcome Maha from Be-you-tiful!

Hello everyone! Hope all of you are having an amazing day! So honored to be featured on your Spotlight Saturday series and be interviewed by a wonderful blogger like you! This is such a great idea and thank you very much for this opportunity! Can’t wait to get started 🙂

I’m excited for this, too! Alright, so the first thing I’d like to know is, what is your blog Be-you-tiful all about? What gave you the idea for it, and what are you wanting to accomplish by writing posts on it?

I named my blog Be-you-tiful because I’m a girl who believes in always being yourself which is where I got the idea from. I always follow this principle throughout my life and the quote “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”

I always try every year to become a better version of myself. I’m an avid learner and a creative thinker and I’m always on the run to coming out of my comfort zone, and learning new things in life as much as I can. My goal in life right now is to accomplish my dreams, leverage my skills and showcase all my talents as much as possible.

For the past few years, I’ve been discovering myself and who I really am and have realized that I have so many hidden talents that I wasn’t even aware of! I’ve been working on many hobbies such as nature photography, drawing, dancing, nail art, poetry and hopefully more in the future haha 🙂

By writing posts, I would really like to connect with everyone and create many innovative ideas/tips to portray to the world and inspire many people out there!

That is so beautiful, girl!! I love your yearly motto; it’s fantastic! Inspirational blogs/bloggers are honestly my favorite, because not only do they encourage everyone they meet, but they’re also constantly motivating themselves to do the best they can. ❤ Pursuing our passions is something I find so beautiful; I’m happy that you’re doing that with yours! The next thing I’d like to ask you is, what are three favorite posts of yours and why do you like them?

Aw, thank you so much Maggie! That really means a lot to me and am glad I can be an inspiration to every out there!

Well, I would say that my 3 fave posts would be the India & Spain Trip Part 2: Madrid post. I believe many of you enjoyed that post and I actually loved writing about it since Madrid is such a beautiful place which brought back some memories. I was glad I was able to share my pics and experience with you all! Ahh, there so many that I love haha!

I enjoy doing my OOTD posts especially the pink dress for my birthday because everything worked out perfectly and was able to match my purse and accessories with my dress so well!

Last but not least, a third one would be my nature photography: summer flowers! This was one of my fave because I’m so glad I got the chance to come across these amazing flowers and be able to take quick photo of them! These flowers are just so beautiful which made me really happy and gave me positive vibes. 

You’re welcome!! xx ooh those posts are fantastic! Good choices! I enjoyed all of those(: My next question for you is: can you share a few blogging tips you’ve learned with us? What are some lessons you’ve learned, and maybe something new bloggers should know?

Thanks girl! Glad you enjoyed them 🙂

Some blogging tips would be to just write about topics that interest you or that you have a passion for since that would really reflect in your posts. Blogging is such a great way to brush up your skills especially writing which would definitely help in the future. Be genuine and honest and really try to express your thoughts since a lot of bloggers can all relate to each other.

Engage and be encouraging to one another because one small act of kindness can really impact someone and make their lives much brighter!

Write posts that would inspire other bloggers and that everyone can learn from. Everyone is unique and has their own style of writing. Instead of competing and comparing yourselves with others, compete with yourselves to grow as an individual. Blogging is not about how much followers you have or how many likes you got on your post (even thought it def feels great lol)

Prove to everyone out there that you are one of a kind and utilize all the strengths and improve on the weaknesses to be a better version of yourself each day! Most importantly, just always be yourself and love yourself which will definitely make you and your blog beautiful 🙂

Use your blogging skills to learn new topics out there, explore who you really are, work hard to achieve your goals, and be an inspiration to everyone!

Aww that is all fantastic advice!! ❤ You’re such a huge inspiration to bloggers – especially me! So, I’d like to know: when you’re not blogging, what can one find you usually doing? For example, what are things you do most (if not every) day?

Aw thanks girl, it really means a lot to me!

I love listening to music whether its Pop, Hip Pop, or even Bollywood. Love dancing to rhythm of the music and enjoying myself, especially in times of stress. I enjoy watching tv shows, shopping on weekends, spending time with family (movie night) and just working on my hobbies, as you know like drawing, photography, DIY nail art, etc. I love reading but haven’t gotten the time to read a good novel due to the hectic schedule of grad school.

I love music, as well! All of your hobbies/daily activities sound awesome(: I’ve really enjoyed getting to interview you, Maha! Thank you for doing this with me. Is there anything else you’d like to tell my readers before we go?

Thank you very much girl for this wonderful opportunity! I also had a great time participating in this lovely interview and so grateful for being part of your Spotlight Series! Def a nice experience 🙂 Thank you to all the people who took the time to read this and if you would like to know more about me, feel free to stop by my blog, take a look at my About Me section, and explore my posts if you’re interested 🙂 Thanks once again Maggie and love you all ❤


This interview was so much fun to write! Special thanks to Maha for doing it for me (: She was fantastic! I highly recommend that you guys go follow Be-you-tiful. It is one of my all-time favorite blogs! And let us know in the comments below:

Spotlight Saturday #13

Hi there, everyone! Thank you for coming by this week’s Spotlight Saturday. Today, I’m getting to interview a very sweet blogging friend whom I’ve loved talking to ever since I came across her blog! Please welcome Apoorva from Elle Online!

Hello everyone! I’m really happy to be part of this week’s Spotlight Saturday series! Thank you Maggie! I’ve always been reading her spotlight Saturday series, and I never knew I would be interviewed once!! It’s such fun and amazing to interact with Maggie and she’s been one of my bestest blogging buddies ever!

Aww you are so sweet, Apoorva! I’m happy that I get to interview you today. So first, I’d love for you to tell us some about yourself. What are your hobbies and interests?

Thank you Maggie! My interests are in fashion, beauty, travel, photography, nature, adventure!

My hobbies include drawing designs that just come in my mind! Traveling, reading books or novels, blogging, playing throw ball, cycling, collecting Barbie dolls and many more!

I’m a light hearted, always into fun kinda person! I am actually shy-natured, but I’m overcoming it after I started blogging because it urges it to be myself and make amazing friends like you, Maggie! I love to play pranks and enjoy with my bestie in school or with my sis at home! I love animals!

Since I was like 4 or 5 years old I’ve been in the company of kittens and cats! Most of my childhood pics contain one or two cats at least! I also owned a dog once!! But now I don’t! I really miss him (he’s still alive, but he’s not with my family any more!) Now I guess that’s enough about me, or else I’ll take the whole time, just blabbing! Carry on Maggie…

That all sounds so awesome! Thank you for telling us more about yourself. (Aww kittens are the best!!) My next question for you is, why did you decide to start your blog Elle Online?

your welcome!! Ah, now that’s one long story!!! I did want to do a post on it and I will soon I guess!

Back in my hols, I was reading many books everyday, and for once I hooked up on the book that my favorite you tuber; Zoella had written! And there started my journey of wanting to start blogging! It’s a book in which the main character: Penny starts a blog of her own. The book itself is named after her blog: Girl Online and yess, that’s why I’ve named it Elle online!!!

I enjoyed the whole 3 book series and in every page I’ve just indulged in the book as if I were Penny!! I really loved Zoe’s book and I wish she writes more! After I read the book I was like, ‘yes, I wanna have my own blog and write what I want and make amazing friends!’ Blogging has made me feel less shy and made me want to open out to people!!!

I’m so glad that you’re having fun with blogging! The story behind your blog is awesome; I love where you got the name for it. 😀 My next question is: What do you love to write blog posts about?

Thank you! I love to write blog posts about beauty, fashion, travel, about an experience that I’ve had, something new that has happened to me, and about books that I currently am obsessed with! I like to include all sorts of topics that catch my eye!

You’re welcome! Ahh I love all those types of posts(: Travel diaries have always been my favorite! Next, I would love to know: do you have any blogging tips for my readers?

Yes they are amazing!

The tips that I have learnt and gained as I started blogging is that we bloggers are like people who undergo many challenges. Sometimes it’s through frustration, jealousy, loss of readers, lack of followers and it goes on. It’s always better to feel concerned with what you have, and with what you have learnt! Doesn’t matter if you have 10 followers, at least there are 10 amazing people reading your posts, right?

As participants in the daily blogging challenges, we’ve gotta be sportive! Don’t care if your friend’s header image is better, or if her content seems better. You are unique, build your own path! And always appreciate the goodness in other blogger’s post too! That’s just what most blogger’s go through everyday, so I wanted to highlight this tip. I remember, Maggie you did a post highlighting this topic and I found it amazing! You guys should read that post, go check it out!!

Aww thanks, girl! And you have some awesome tips! It’s so important to be content with however many followers we have, whether big or small amounts. ❤ I have had so much fun interviewing you, Apoorva! Thank you for doing this with me! Do you have anything else you’d like to say to my readers before we go?

Thank you so much, Maggie !!! I’ve also enjoyed a lot since you started interviewing me!!! You’re the best!! I want to say thank you to all of the amazing people who have been reading it! I hope I made a smile appear on your face, and check out my blog if you wish so and want to see more of me!!
