1] Blog Name
I really don’t have a blog name as of now I merely go by my own name.
2] What is your blog’s specific genre?
My blog is about life in general and our daily activities with a musical twist.
3] How old is your Blog?
My blog is only 7 days old.
4] Why did you feel the need to start an actual blog?
I missed out on a lot of things when I was growing up, especially writing so I’m here to read as much as I can, get to know you guys and become a good writer and in a way I can express how I feel about certain topics.
5] What age were you when you first started to write?
I just start writing this year. 28 years old.
6] Was it a natural process or did something or someone inspire you to put your first thoughts to paper?
It’s kind of funny how I got myself into writing. I just start taking some online classes to improve my writing skills, but how I really got into writing is watching a TV Show called Californiacation and the main actor of the show is David Duchovnyis known as Hank Moody. He truly did inspire me to start writing and in a few ways my early life was kind of similar to Hank Moody’s life style.
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 do have to have a reason to write something down it does not come easily to me, that’s why I’m motivated to find an interesting topic and I’m always thinking about new ideas.
8] How frequent or prolific are you with your writing and blogging?
Just starting to blog and writing a few days ago and I’m thinking to post a new blog every Friday at least once a week.
9] Is it just WordPress that your writing is displayed or other platforms as well?
As of right now the only platform that I’m using is WordPress.
10] Do you use social media to advertise and market your blog? If so which ones and how effective is it/are they?
I haven’t really advertised my blog on any of my social media pages because I’m new and trying to get the hang of it before I announce to the word that I’m blogging. I don’t think I’m ready for that 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?
As a kid growing up I always had issues putting my own thoughts on paper. For example, I knew what to write but couldn’t word it properly and the majority of the time I had this issue where my mind was blank. As of now I don’t think about it whatever comes to my mind, I write and I start editing it and that has really helped me out.
12] Which is your preferred writing/creative style?
To me Creative writing is really just any writing that goes outside the bounds of normal professional, journalistic, academic, or technical forms of literature and right now I’m trying to discover my writing style.
13] What is the best thing about blogging in your eyes?
The best thing about blogging is that as a reader or writer we put our own thoughts and opinions and learning from one another.
14] What prompts you to write about a topic on the day that you post?
Life itself prompts all of my writing for example, whenever I see something that pisses me off such as fake people or people who usually want to damage our Society through their word of actions or at times something that really makes me happy!
15] What advice would you award new bloggers to help and encourage them promote their blog and engage with their audience?
I’m a newbie myself, my advice is to read every single blog that your community posts and engage with them as much as possible in addition to that reposting a blog that already has a lot of followers, likes and comments will definitely get your traffic going. As of now I’m trying to discover how I can repost other people’s blogs or posts.
16] Do you have an overall blogging strategy or simply write because you enjoy writing?
As of right now I simply just write because I truly enjoy it.
17] Do you feel it is important to have an engaging audience to the content that you write?
Absolutely, without an engaging audience, how will you improve yourself? So it’s crucial to know who your audience is and how they can get involved with your posts.
18] If no one ever commented on your blog would this concern you, and if so how would you rectify the situation?
Personally, it wouldn’t concern me because I’m fairly new to blogging, however, if I’m engaging with others and my blog is not getting the attention that it deserves than I know that I’m doing something wrong and I would ask for feedback and change my strategy.
19] How long from start to finish would/can your content take you to complete?
Anywhere from an hour to two.
