1] Blog Name
2] What is your blog’s specific genre?
3] How old is your Blog?
About 1 month old or so
4] Why did you feel the need to start an actual blog?
I felt the need to share my journey with those who suffer with Invisible Illnesses and have no support. I also wanted to bring insight to my daily life & struggles as well as enlighten people that are searching for information to find it in my blog on Invisible Illnesses.
5] What age were you when you first started to write?
10 years old. I wanted to write novels or get into journalism
6] Was it a natural process or did something or someone inspire you to put your first thoughts to paper?
It was a natural process. I’ve always love to write. I made a great secretary in my life, I was an insurance agent but my boss loved my customer service skills as well & myself taught computer skills, so I got to be his secretary on top of being an agent.
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?
It used to flow naturally, but since an unfortunate incident happened in 2010 which caused me to lose the use of my hands & cause my mind to wander & be a bit catatonic, it’s been harder to focus. So now my hands are back, but unfortunately my depression & fibromyalgia amongst other Invisible Illnesses plaque me & triggers my inspiration to write.
8] How frequent or prolific are you with your writing and blogging?
It’s a bit too soon to say but I think I am blogging a couple times a week.

Just WORDPRESS & I’m trying to start a Vlog on YouTube.
10] Do you use social media to advertise and market your blog? If so which ones and how effective is it/are they?
I use Facebook & Instagram, but I can’t tell yet if working.
11] Writers block we all get it at one point or another – if you do suffer from it, how do you tackle the problem?
I’ve been blessed with the gift of gab. Depression, pain, it does not matter, if I feel I need to blog, I’ll do it.
12] Which is your preferred writing/creative style?
I like to freestyle. Blog about whatever is on my mind & or what happens in my day. A part of my life is poured into my blog.
13] What is the best thing about blogging in your eyes?
The people who read your blog & make comments. Also, to read others & gain encouragement & I learn from it.

It varies, something that happened in my day. Also, when I feel like blogging about why I feel I have PTSD or depression & my fibromyalgia & nerve damage.
15] What advice would you award new bloggers to help and encourage them promote their blog and engage with their audience?
I wish I knew, I’m still trying to learn. I can only say be honest.
16] Do you have an overall blogging strategy or simply write because you enjoy writing?
I enjoy writing. I just feel feel its cathartic.
17] Do you feel it is important to have an engaging audience to the content that you write?
Yes. I’m hoping to build my audience.
18] If no one ever commented on your blog would this concern you, and if so how would you rectify the situation?
If no one commented, I would just continue because it brings me a sense of peace. I just hope if anyone reads it, they gain a good look at how these Invisible Illnesses can affect your lives.
