I decided to take part in the Me, Myself, and I link up this week. I really liked the questions and it’s a chance to get to know me and you better. If you’d like to take part you can create a pingback to the original post so your answers will “link”.
Now onto the questions:
1. Where/How do you get your ideas for blog posts?
I get ideas from everything and everywhere, I check magazines, Twitter, Facebook, and other bloggers. I do admit that I need to be more organized with my editorial calendar so I tend to fall behind with drafts. Hey I’m trying.
2. What’s the one piece of advice you would give to new bloggers just starting out?
Since I’m a new blogger, I’m not sure how much weight my advice would carry anyway. But I suggest to be relate-able. Don’t think that because of your niche that you have to sound like someone you aren’t. It’s really annoying to me to read posts that are so pretentious and trying so hard . CUT IT OUT, YOU”RE OBNOXIOUS! Write like you are speaking to your friends and family, I mean unless you consistently use paragraph long metaphors to speak to your friends. And take time away from your blog, don’t force yourself to write if you aren’t in the mood, it’s supposed to an enjoyable endeavor.
3. How would your closest friends describe you?
I got the sweetest compliment from a friend last week , she called me her sunshine! I blushed! That was the best!
4. What’s the best place you’ve ever visited and why?
I haven’t gone many places, unfortunately. But the best trip I’ve ever taken was a Caribbean cruise many years ago. Cruise life is the best way to travel in my opinion.
5. What has been your biggest challenge so far?
Self doubt is always a big struggle, allowing the negative voices to take place in mind is such an awful thing to do. Replace negative self talk with positive words, talk to yourself like you would your best friend who needs a shoulder to cry on.
Hope you enjoyed this different kind of post. What about you guys? Would you like to join in and answer these questions?
Until our next rendezvous..
