Bloggers Questionnaire

988

When did you start your blog?
I first started blogging on 22nd October 2010, but have only in the last 18 months have i started really focusing on my blog and caring about it. Now it's like my little baby!

 Have you had any other online presence before?
 Nope, this is my first blog, and i now have youtube channel too, and pinterest which i don't use too much of unfortunately. But i've used twitter and Facebook for as long as i can remember.

 Why did you start your blog? 
I'd just come out of hospital after having a serious operation on my leg, and then my Grandma passed away and i kind of needed a distraction. I'd read a few blogs in the past, so i thought why the heck don't i start one.

 When did you become serious about starting a blog?
 I reckon the last 18 months or so i've really started taking my blog seriously and i'm enjoying it so much. Like i said in the first question, my blog is my baby.

 What was your first post?
My first post was a little and short post, this is what it read"'i've learnt recently that it's pretty easy to keep people happy. learn to smile constantly, and don't complain. - it's that simple. and the people who you don't manage to please, tend to be the ones that are never satisfied."

 What is the most rewarding thing to you about blogging?
 I love getting to know the whole blogging community and connecting with other bloggers. Little comments on my blog can seriously brighten up my day, and when people say they like my blog, or the read it regularly just makes me feel so elated. Working with companies and being invited to events/parties is always a plus too.

 What is the most discouraging thing that happens to you?
I've had  a few people comment on my weight calling me fat, or saying that they don't like my blog. I just think, keep your opinions to yourself and why read or even check my blog if you don't like it!

 What's your lasting motivation/inspiration?
I started this blog the day my Grandma died so this blog is like dedicated to her memory. I'm so motivated to make it something she'd be proud of.

Do you hope to gain anything out of blogging?
I'd like to become a fashion journalist or something in a similar field to do with fashion, so i'm hoping that this may open windows for that. I'd love for blogging to be my fulltime job!

What do you like about blogging?
I just love writing and taking photos of what im wearing and doing reviews. I also look forward to what people think of my outfits and reviews, and getting positive or negative feedback is always welcome as i'd love to improve my blog as much as possible

Have you got a favourite blog?
I don't have a favourite blog, each blog has it's own individuality about it, and that's what appeals to me, and i suppose different things appeal to different people. But you can find some of my favourites on my blogroll.

Is there anything you'd recommend for newbie bloggers?
Just be yourself. Blog about what interests you and don't just follow the trend. People like reading posts that aren't so samey so don't feel like you have to copy other bloggers. Individuality is key.

  1. Your answers to the Bloggers' Questionnaire are very interesting and enlightening. It would be nice if you do get a good quality job in fashion journalism and/or the fashion world. I love your outfit posts. In addition to your answers here I also love your 11 second long YouTube video titled: Become a blogger today! on your YouTube channel Courtney Melville - YouTube.
