May Blogger Interview!!

Hey Guys!!

So before the month ends as I get back into the scheme of things I would like to get my blogger interview for May up! This is my way of connecting with more bloggers, having them answer my questions but sharing them with my wonderful readers so you can all get to know many other bloggers in the blogesphere that gets larger by the day!

2016-02-15-(3)-1

Last month I interview the lovely Fran from FrannyMac. This months interview we have the wonderful Anne from Annesmiles a sports lover who’s motivation I envy! I wish I had the motivation to workout regularly and keep fit and healthy! She has a lovely lifestyle blog full of not just informative fitness posts but healthy recipes too so if you are trying to get fit for summer I am pretty sure you can find some great advice from Anne’s blog I know I will be heading there more often! Keep reading to find out more about this wonderful blogger!

1. Introduce yourself! 

I’m Anne, a 21-year-old blogger and sports-science student from Denmark.

2. Tell me a bit about your blog?

At it’s core, my blog is about health; physical as well as mental, so besides workouts and recipes, I write a lot different lifestyle posts. Overall I try to make it my positive little slice of the internet and be both informative and entertaining (some people would claim I’m a little silly sometimes)

3. Are you self hosted/do you hope to be?

Actually, I went self hosted at the start of May! I love how much freedom it gives, and there’s some super helpful plugins.

4. Have you ever purchased a blog design? If Yes would you recommend purchasing a blog design from a company & how did you find the process of installing it onto your blog?

I have in fact purchased the design I’m using right now (I think it was about $25). One of the bonuses of purchasing a design (if you find a proper designer) is that you get access to the designer’s support forum! I found invaluable help and advice about installation and customization.

5. What is your favourite area, beauty, fashion or lifestyle and why?

Lifestyle, without a doubt! I think it’s easier to make lifestyle posts personal, and that’s what I enjoy writing and reading the most.

6. How long have you blogged for?

Well… Annesmiles.com is actually not my first blog – I’ve been blogging there for over around 9 months, but I first entered the blogging world nearly 5 years ago (wauw, that’s a lot longer than I expected)

7. What is your best blogging memory?

It’s difficult to boil my experience down to one moment. I’ve never been to a blogger event or meet up, but a memory that stands out to me is when I first opened up about my depression and anxiety. I hadn’t been blogging very long, and I was very overwhelmed by all the support and stories from people in a similar situation.

8. Where do you hope to go with your blog in the future?

That’s such a tough question! I don’t even know what I want to be when I grow up (and I’m kinda grown up already). I do hope that my blog continues to grow, and as my education in sports science & health is closely related to what I blog about, it would be interesting if I could combine it somehow, but so far it’s just a silly idea.

9. What is your favourite time of the year to blog in and why?

So far it’s been around Christmas. Over the holidays I finally had time to blog, and I started putting more effort into my posts.

10. Who are your top 3 favourite bloggers/ 3 bloggers who inspire you?

It’s tough to pick just 3, because I’m inspired by so many talented bloggers in different ways.

But a few of them are:

  1. Forever Amber: Because her writing style and personality is amazing, and I love to read her post regardless of the topic.
  2. Pumps & Iron: Because I strive to make my blog as awesome as Nicole’s
  3. A Million Miles: For posting the most beautiful, mouthwatering food images and recipes.

Thank you too the amazing Anne for answering my questions! It was lovely to get to know you better and I wish you the best of luck with your blog and hope you achieve everything you aspire too, I am already inspired by some of your posts! Anne has a glorious blog so be sure to check it out here  and I will also leave her social media links below!

April Blogger Interview!!

Hey Guys!!

It’s that time of the month for another interview with another spectacular blogger! This is my way of connecting with more bloggers, having them answer my questions but sharing them with my wonderful readers so you can all get to know many other bloggers in the blogesphere that gets larger by the day!

img_8308

Last month I interview the lovely Nicola from Pink-Confetti. This months interview we have the wonderful Fran from FrannyMac  a part time saleswoman and a full time makeup addict! She has such a cute blog with intriguing content so be sure to check it out after you have read this post!

1. Introduce yourself! 

I’m Fran, a twenty something blogger from London with a lipstick collection larger than I’d like to admit. I’m normally found with my phone, camera or a glass of prosecco in hand!

2. Tell me a bit about your blog?
My blog features a mix of beauty, lifestyle and things to do in London with the odd fashion and travel post thrown in for good measure!
3. Are you self hosted/do you hope to be?

I went .com last year and I’m looking to go self hosted in 2016 but getting my head round WordPress compared to blogger makes my head spin a little.

4. Have you ever purchased a blog design? If Yes would you recommend purchasing a blog design from a company & how did you find the process of installing it onto your blog?

I originally coded my own on the old school blogger template using a bit of knowledge from tumblr themes, but when I moved to having widgets I just found it easier to buy one! I am a bit of a nerd so I found the installation fairly easy, the bit I found difficult was tweaking it afterward! There are some excellent and talented designers out there that do some awesome premade templates as well as custom work, Etsy is a great place to start.

5. What is your favourite area, beauty, fashion or lifestyle and why?

Really it depends on my mood, however I think lifestyle is definitely the easiest to write about because I can just talk about what I’ve been up to and how much I enjoyed it!

6. How long have you blogged for?
I’ve had a blog for a good few years. I originally used tumblr (although that was mostly just pictures of cute animals..) and moved to Blogger around 2 years ago. However, I’ve only taken blogging seriously for around a year!
7. What is your best blogging memory?
There’s seriously so many!
My top ones include;
Going to my first meet up and discovering that everyone was absolutely lovely.
The #BubblesBathStore event where I was brave enough to wear swimwear in public.
Golfing by the Thames with Monarch Airlines & learning all about SEO, Pinterest and approaching brands at the #BigBloggerConference. Although that’s the tip of the iceberg, 2015 was such an amazing year for my blog!
8. Where do you hope to go with your blog in the future?

I really don’t know, I just hope to progress as much as I did last year and see where it leads…

9. What is your favourite time of the year to blog in and why?

Summer! As lame as it sounds, the natural light is a god send for photos and there’s so much more going on around the city that I can use for inspiration!

10. Who are your top 3 favourite bloggers/ 3 bloggers who inspire you?
I have so many favourite bloggers that I can’t narrow it down to three! However, 3 that inspire me are;
Leah at http://www.rosalilium.com/ – Her photos and beauty knowledge are second to non!
Lauren at http://www.blondevision.co.uk/ – Actually not sure how she manages to run her blog, multiple companies AND organize blog meets on the side. I wish I could be half as organised as her!
Fee at http://www.makeupsavvy.co.uk/ – Seriously, not only is her content amazing her photography is spot on! I hope one day mine will be as flawless!

Thank you too the tremendous Fran for answering my questions! It was lovely to get to know you better and I wish you the best of luck with your blog and hope you achieve everything you aspire too, it sounds like you have already made some wonderful memories within the blogesphere! Fran has a beautiful blog so be sure to check it out here  and I will also leave her social media links below!

Hey Guys!!

It’s that time of the month for another interview with another spectacular blogger! This is my way of connecting with more bloggers, having them answer my questions but sharing them with my wonderful readers so you can all get to know many other bloggers in the blogesphere that gets larger by the day!

Last month I interview the lovely Amy from HookedOnTheMusic. This months interview I have interviewed Nicola from Pink-Confetti who writes a lot of lifstyle blog posts! She has amazing content and a gorgeous blog layout with lots of pink of course so be sure to check out her blog and carry on reading to find out more about her in her answers to my questions!

1. Introduce yourself! 

Hello! I’m Nicola, I’m 27 and I live in London! And I’m a blogger over at www.pink-confetti.co.uk 🙂

2. Tell me a bit about your blog?

It’s very much a lifestyle blog – I’ve tried to fit into some sort of niche before but it just doesn’t work for me! I write about life, things that I’ve been doing, places that I’ve been eating at, wishlists, and random anecdotes. Lifestyle, food and fashion posts are my most frequent topics though!

3. Are you self hosted/do you hope to be?

I am indeed.

4. Have you ever purchased a blog design? If Yes would you recommend purchasing a blog design from a company & how did you find the process of installing it onto your blog?
I had my design custom made. I’m pleased I did, as I gave all the information I wanted and got exactly what I wanted from it! I also had it installed for me but it’s been easy enough to edit.

5. What is your favourite area, beauty, fashion or lifestyle and why?

Lifestyle! They are just my favourite posts to both read and write as I like variety and getting to know a blogger. I do the occasional fashion post and enjoy reading them. Beauty I rarely care about!

6. How long have you blogged for?

My current blog was started in 2014. I blogged on and off before that!

7. What is your best blogging memory?

Can’t choose just one! Meeting some now real life friends and getting to work with one of my favourite brands 🙂

8. Where do you hope to go with your blog in the future?
Of course I’d like my blog to get bigger and I’d love to work with more brands. As I’m big into travel, I’d particularly love to work with some travel brands.

9. What is your favourite time of the year to blog in and why?
I don’t have one! Whenever I have time I suppose!

10. Who are your top 3 favourite bloggers/ 3 bloggers who inspire you?
I can’t answer that one as it changes all the time and I have SO many that I couldn’t possibly narrow it down! But if you’re really interested in my favourites, I do a weekly favourites post on my blog where you’ll be able to see all my loves each week 🙂

Thank you too the wonderful Nicola for answering my questions! It was lovely to get to know you better and I wish you the best of luck with your blog and hope you get to travel the world! I Hope those reading enjoyed this insight into Nicola and her blog, She has very engaging and intersting so be sure to check out her blog here I will also leave her social media links below!

February Blogger Interview!

img_6299

Hey Guys!!

Welcome to the second post in my blogging series of blogger interviews! This is my way of connecting with more bloggers, having them answer my questions but sharing them with my wonderful readers so you can all get to know these great bloggers who I have connected with!

Last month I interview the lovely Shona Harding. This months interview I have interviewed Amy from HookedOnTheMusic who writes about mainly music album/gig reviews and lifestyle posts! She has some lovely content and a beautiful blog layout so be sure to check out her blog and carry on reading to find out more about her in her answers to my questions!

1. Introduce yourself! 

Hi I’m Amy, I write a music blog called Hooked On The Music. I’m 20 years old and studying Popular Music Journalism, a course I really enjoy.

2. Tell me a bit about your blog?

It’s a UK-based Music blog, with news and reviews of the latest releases. I also have a Featured Artist every Wednesday, where I shout out a new artist and say why their music should be listened to now.

3. Are you self hosted/do you hope to be?

I’m not currently, and I don’t know if I want to be – this is only a hobby and I don’t think I’ll take it that seriously to be self-hosted, but who knows

4. Have you ever purchased a blog design? If Yes would you recommend purchasing a blog design from a company & how did you find the process of installing it onto your blog?
I have. I bought the current design of my blog and would definitely recommend it, as it’s easy to install and the customer service is brilliant. I found installing it really easy, as the company provided a manual on how to install it.
5. What is your favourite area, beauty, fashion or lifestyle and why?

Lifestyle probably, as I’m nosy and want to see what people have been doing with their day.

6. How long have you blogged for?

I started up my blog in August 2012, so just over 3 years ago. But it’s only in the last 6 months that I’ve taken it really seriously and posted more than ever.

7. What is your best blogging memory?

Probably hearing that my review of Butserfest, a festival I attended and spoke about on my blog, was printed out and put up in the offices of the council that organised it, so everyone who was involved could see it.

8. Where do you hope to go with your blog in the future?
I hope to get the opportunity to meet new bloggers, review a lot of new albums and feature more new artists.
9. What is your favourite time of the year to blog in and why?
I haven’t been seriously blogging for that long, so I would have to say the Winter time because of Blogmas, festive posts and lots of Christmas songs to write about!
10. Who are your top 3 favourite bloggers/ 3 bloggers who inspire you?

Thank you too the lovely Amy for answering my questions! It was lovely to get to know you better and I wish you the best of luck with your blog and the course you are currently studying! I will definitely be looking into purchasing a blog design as yours looks lovely I Hope those reading enjoyed this insight into Amy and her blog, She is very lovely so be sure to check out her blog here I will also leave her social media links below!
