1] Blog Name
2] What is your blog’s specific genre?
Umm I would think “Personal”. It’s mainly just thoughts, rants, and experiences.
3] How old is your Blog?
I started WordPress Jan 1st 2018 so my blog is only a year old.
4] Why did you feel the need to start an actual blog?
I have always been that kid that wrote in her Diary and as I got older I wanted other people to see what I was writing. My favorite thing is going back and finding something that I wrote years ago, just to see how much I’ve grown.
5] What age were you when you first started to write?
The furthest back I can remember is when I was writing a book at eight years old.
6] Was it a natural process or did something or someone inspires you to put your first thoughts to paper?
It was a natural process. It is weird because I didn’t get into reading till a few months ago. Now it just seems like when I read I later want to write as well.
7] Would you say that your creativity flows easily or do you need to be motivated by an event or a moment in your life to trigger it?
I need a trigger for sure, something to look, hear, or read.
8] How frequent or prolific are you with your writing and blogging?
Sadly I think I go too long without a post making it online. Maybe every other week one post makes it.
9] Is it just WordPress that your writing is displayed or other platforms as well?
WordPress and Blogger.com only. Writing is fun for me and I don’t do it enough yet to link to other networks.
10] Do you use social media to advertise and market your blog? If so which ones and how effective is it/are they?
No thinking about it but haven’t created anything special yet.
11] Writers block we all get it at one point or another – if you do suffer from it, how do you tackle the problem?
Don’t judge but I type a random word or words into Google and scroll till I find something to talk about. It’s like being on Facebook and being on one person’s page then before you know it you are 8 pages away from where you originally started. HAHA or is that just me?
12] Which is your preferred writing/creative style?
13] What is the best thing about blogging in your eyes?
Going back and seeing my page growing with all my completed work.
14] What prompts you to write about a topic on the day that you post?
I am so random it’s unreal. I could be walking, see a puppy and be like l’m going to talk about my puppy. Note to self I should post about my fur baby!
15] What advice would you award new bloggers to help and encourage them promote their blog and engage with their audience?
Everyone here is a writer in way or another and likes to talk so talk. Respond back to your reads, challenge them in a playful way that makes them want to come back.
16] Do you have an overall blogging strategy or simply write because you enjoy writing?
17] Do you feel it is important to have an engaging audience to the content that you write?
Yes, because I want to become a better writer. Sometimes I lose track of what I was saying or the point I was making.
18] If no one ever commented on your blog would this concern you, and if so how would you rectify the situation?
I found that if I go comment on other people’s post then they are more likely to engage with me as well. When I go without commenting on anyone’s new post after a while no one comments on anything for me. It has concerned me before when I was using blogger.com so I switched to a host with me traffic. There has to be at least one person in the world that we connect with while writing. All it takes is one.
19] How long from start to finish would/can your content take you to complete?
I can complete an entry in a hour at the fastest. It really depends on how creative or how big I’m trying to make a project. I started the 7 deadliest sins almost 2 years ago and still haven’t finished.
20] Which do you think are your best 3 posts to date?

21] Finally, what advice would you offer new writers to the blogging community?
Do not do it for the “likes”, write what you enjoy so It doesn’t become work.
