I hope you’re having the best time ever and that you’re safe at home in these super uncertain times. I was going to post a rant today but I didn’t really know what to do lol
But then I remembered that the other day I got nominated by the amazing Thony @ markanthonyswall.wordpress.com for the Hustler Blogger Award!!! Thank you so much Thony, this means a lot!!!! 🥰🥰🥰
So here we go!!!!!
The Hustler Blogger Award:
- Make Sure to include the banner in your award post. You can make it the featured photo or you can just attach it along the blog post. (check)
- Be sure to give the creator (the amazing markanthonyswall.wordpress.com) pingback on your post, so he’ll be able to read them. (check)
- You can nominate numerous bloggers of your choice, but make sure it isn’t less than 5 people.
- Answer the questions.
- The person who’s being nominated, and who’s about to nominate can add one more question of his/her choice to his/her nominees.
Why did you start a blog?
I started this blog because ever since I was little and started going on my computer to google random things and play games I thought the idea of having this online place of your own where you post whatever you want and design it and have people visit it was super exciting!!!! 😄 And I still do think so!!!
What/who inspired you to do it?
Ummm there were a couple of spanish bloggers *yeah, I’m spanish in case u didn’t know* who I discovered because they had the same crush as me *Cameron Boyce, rest in peace 🖤*. I’m sorry I’m not linking their blogs, but I don’t remember their URLs, this was 7 years ago. I guess they inspired me in most part, especially because I remember their blogs were really pretty 😍😍
What motivates you to keep pushing and creating content and make your site alive?
Omg that’s such a good question.
Well, you know, whenever you see someone successful, whether it’s in the internet world or the entertainment industry or just wherever, that person made their dreams come true, and most times they were people just like you and me, so I guess that you can really become successful at something if you always remain constant in what you do.
Also I love doing this, I have more than enough time to stay active and it makes me feel productive and really good about myself. 🤪
Who are your fave bloggers? And how do they urge you to grow as well?
I really don’t have favorite bloggers, I love a lot of people’s blogs, either because the content is really good or because their aesthetic is really cool. Also I’ve met a lot of bloggers in all these years I’ve been in the blogging community, you know?
And yeah, they definitely inspire me and influence my style of writing, as well as they motivate me to keep going, obvs.
What lesson/s have you learned through your experience?
A lot. I’ve learnt, for instance, that even if someone gets a lot of interaction (that is comments, likes, follws…) and they have a lot of followers… if they’re not constant and they leave their blog abandoned, their game is weak. It took me a lot of time to really believe that, but with years I’ve really seen that.
Has blogging brought impact to you as a person? If yes, what are these?
Definitely. I’ve made a lot of friends, some are now very close to me, even some bloggers who aren’t even bloggers anymore, but our friendship is still there.
Also because blogging is one of the things that I’m most proud of myself for doing and I’ve been doing it for 6 years now. Some people practice football; others do cycling; others play the trumpet; or the bagpipe, why
tf not; others sing, speak 4 languages… My thing is blogging, this thing I do that fulfills me.
*maybe I shouldn’t have compared blogging to those things, but you get the point, it’s this thing I do outside of school that makes me proud*
Not everyone is confident enough to start a blog. What advice can you give ’em?
I don’t think anyone needs much confidence to have a blog really. Maybe at first it’s kinda weird cause you don’t know how you want to talk to your readers or you’re not sure what you want to do on your blog, but with time you become used to it and end up figuring it out. Just post about whatever you like, keep going and you’ll be fine.
Give 3 facts about you as a blogger (strengths or flaws)
- I don’t read as many blog posts as I’d like to *this is a flaw*
- I’ve been posting every week since I was 11, no hiatuses *strength*
- My blog is usually pretty colorful, I like posting colorful pictures cause I have the mind of a little kid 😂 *let’s call this a strength*
Drop down your blog post which you are most proud of (together with the link so we can read it)
Oh my freaking god I have no idea. Cause there’re posts that I’m really proud of because of what they are about, others have been my most liked, others have been my most commented.
Well, I don’t have a post that I’m most proud of, but I’ll share this one cause I like it a lot:
I hope you guys enjoy, I’m pretty proud of that one because of what it says < 3
