A Litte Bit About Why I Blog

I had to do a mock interview for my writing & publishing class. I thought I would share it with my readers, who may want to get to know me bit better:

Why did you choose to write in your particular field or genre?  

I have always wanted to blog, but I didn’t want my blog to be just another fashion/style site. I wanted to write about what matters most to me, empowering and inspiring people—but most importantly, women. There are many pressures facing women today, these are mostly focused around superficial concepts facilitated by our culture and the media. I wanted to bring awareness to inner-beauty and inspire my readers to become the best version of themselves. I saw a gap, and I wanted to fill it with great things.

How long have you been writing?

I began my blog in February of 2016, still new to the blogging field, I am open to learning new things. I curate all my own content and photography; I find it important to focus on quality rather than quantity. I began writing at a very early age; finding a deep love for putting words together in any form.

What cultural value do you see in writing?

Writing has become a platform for many to express their opinions and ideas. I think writing in our culture has reached a great height; we are very lucky to have the freedom to create any content we desire. Blogging is an interesting platform in itself, because anyone can inspire using their own unique story and voice.

What were your goals and intentions for this blog?  

It’s not about followers, it is about getting an important message across to women and young female adults. My intentions have always been to reach out to those who are interested in something more than a superficial existence. It can be challenging to go against the grain of culture, but with help, anyone can find purpose beyond material things.

What inspires you?  

Strong women inspire me, especially those who dare(d) to be great. I am also inspired by other blogger/writers who don’t apologize for being different, they aren’t afraid to tell their story—as hard as it may be.

Are you a full-time or part-time blogger?  How does that affect your writing?

I blog part-time and enjoy it as a peripheral hobby. I work full-time in marketing and I am also a full-time student. Blogging without the promise of income allows me to write what I want. I don’t have to worry about writing sponsored content, or anything contrived. I am at the helm, and it feels wonderful. My husband said something similar about photography, “once it becomes your livelihood, the dynamic can change.” I never want to lose the enjoyment of either photography or blogging.

How do you find or make time to write?

With working and going to school full-time, finding time to write can be challenging! I allow myself an hour each day to write—it doesn’t have to be a masterpiece. There isn’t any pressure. If it is complete rubbish, I just send that post right to the trash can!

    YES! Women empowerment; I love how you’re such a strong supporter because it is hard for women to speak up and be who they are in a world full of men. Its nice that a good portion of bloggers are in fact women and we can all support and encourage one another even if its just through a simple blog post. One blog post can go such a long way. So happy to have found such a wonderful blog/blogger to follow xo

    xo, JJ

      JJ, you are such a sweetheart! I look forward to all your comments, thank you.

      I agree about building up others. A lot of women are competitive, but there is plenty of greatness to go around! I am so lucky to have found some phenomenal female writers on this platform.

      XO,
