The Sunshine Blogger Award

First off, I want to thank Hannah over at https://madewithlove99.wordpress.com/ for nominating me for this award. It’s always fun to get to know other bloggers.

So, for those of you who don’t know, the rules of the award are;

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers and ask them 11 different questions
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post and/or on your blog site

 

The questions that were asked of me;

How did you decide on what topic(s) you wanted your blog to be about?

That just came naturally. I couldn’t write about things I don’t enjoy or want to complain about. 

Is there anything about blogging you don’t enjoy?

I hate the scheduling part of it. I just can’t force myself to write and post on specific days and I hate writing in advance. 

Do you have to juggle blogging with other things e.g. a job and, if so, how difficult is this for you?

I’m on medical leave because of my GAD right now but eventually I will have to go back to my full time job. So far, it’s been pretty easy 🙂 (that’s probably why I don’t feel like I have to schedule anything)

Aside from twitter, what other forms of social media do you use to promote your blog?

I use Instagram and Pinterest. I have to admit, I’m still struggling to understand the point of Pinterest but some bloggers seem to make it work. Feel free to join me on those platforms, by the way. 

Has there ever been a time when you considered walking away from blogging?

I’ve been blogging for barely three months, so no 🙂

What sort of reaction do you get from people when you tell them you’re a blogger?

I don’t tell people I’m a blogger because so far it’s been a hobby more than anything. Also, my full time job is teacher, so I tell people I’m a teacher. 

Is there a blogger who has inspired you in anyway?

There’s definitely a French beauty blogger I look up to (monblogdefille.com) because she left her job when she was 35 or something and decided to start a blog and make a living out of it. 

More recently, I’d have to say that Ruth (from ruthinrevolt.com) because manages to create a sense of community and makes you feel like you are important and a part of it. 

Do you have favourite blogger?

There are some people I love reading, but I wouldn’t say I have a favourite blogger. 

What would make you hit that “follow” button on someone’s blog?

I like beauty content in general, so I follow a lot of beauty blogs, but I will follow people who make me laugh. 

When did you decide you would start blogging?

Three months ago, when my anxiety became overwhelming.

What do you love most about blogging?

I love the community. I love writing, taking pictures, interacting on social media. 

 

Here are the people I’d like to nominate:

Ruth

Bearded Igor

Sophia

Yesmoreblogs

Elrincondelhygge

Ana

The Dubai Sisters 🙂

Melissa

 

The questions I was asked were pretty cool so I’d like you to answer them too 🙂 Love you all!

  1. This was very useful. I was nominated for this award a few months ago when I was brand new to blogging. I’d never heard of it and had no idea what to do. I thanked the person who nominated me, not because it was a rule but out of politeness. I had no idea there were further steps! In the unlikely event that I’m ever nominated again, I’ll know what to do because of your post 🙂

  2. Blogging is a bit like journaling, it’s so wonderful how it can feel pretty therapeutic. Also, very confused that Twitter is being used to promote blogs.
    Thanks for the nom, I am letting you know I will do it next month as I want to write on a couple of things this month and I don’t want to write for 4 days a week. Congrats on the award!
