So without further to-do here are the questions I was asked and my answers.
If you were magically given the abilities to do any job in the world, what would it be? The ability to actually write a novel as epic as what I imagine in my mind. The stories dance around taunting me up there but I can never do them justice on the page. I have wanted to be an author almost my entire life.
A weird little habit that you have? Off the top of my head I can’t think of one so I asked King and he said (and please don’t judge me on this) “what about when you open a tin of beans and sip the extra juice off the top before pouring it into the pan, that’s pretty weird.” yeah thanks Hun though wish you could have thought of something else 😂
Do you believe in ghosts? When my dad died I did and then every time a loved one has passed away after this I have for a day or two fearing their ghost will visit me but in general, no.
Where do you get your ideas for blog posts? My mind? Sorry less sarcastic answer now 😊 ideas don’t tend to really come from anywhere in particular at the minute they just pop to mind and I put them on a mind map app I’ve got the ideas usually pop up while I’m walking the dog but they aren’t usually inspired by something.
How long does it take you to write a post? About a week – 6 days and 23 hours to procrastinate and an hour of actual writing (with the hour being spread out through the week not just sitting down for an hour straight)
What’s your pet peeve? People who have their phone on speaker but still hold it up to their ear! I can’t explain why it annoys me so much it just does!
What sort of blogs do you follow yourself? Because my blog is a little bit of everything I follow a little bit of everything. If you write with passion and you have a good attitude towards others in the community I follow but I think you can tell when people are in it for the wrong reason like freebies.
How long have you been blogging? Mid April 2018 – so basically a month.
How has the ‘journey’ been so far? Crazy I’ve made some really great chums so far and it’s been so nice to have a safe place to go to be honest. I didn’t want to get weighed down with not having many followers or views and that has been getting to me a little the past week or so and I’ve had moments where I’ve not felt quite good enough but I know I’m doing the best I can and giving as much time as I can around my 9 to 5.
Has Anything Surprised You About Blogging? Not really in all honesty, I think because I’ve had 2 blogs before and one of them was a pretty fair size in terms of followers and interaction I feel pretty comfortable with it especially since this is so much more relaxed for me because it’s not a niche it’s everything.
What would your perfect day be like? I’d wake up and not have to “what’s the point” battle that plagues every morning. Glass of fresh apple juice and a warmed up pain au chocolate while reading a good book – and I’d be able to read it with out the dark cloud interrupting and distracting – I would have a driving lesson that went 100% well instead of the patchy lessons I tend to have. Me and King would then go to the Bronte village for the day and walk along the moors to the falls and when we got back we’d sit in the Villette Cafe and have cream scones and a pot of tea. When we got home we’d get some snacks, order a pizza get the big jedi dressing gown up (because it covers us both) and watch a film (Deadpool is our favourite) till we inevitably nod off (before the end, always!)
I wasn’t sure who to nominate because I didn’t know who’d done it already. If I’ve nominated you and you’ve already done it I’m sorry.
My Questions – some may seem frivolous but I think you can tell a lot about a person from their answers to frivolous questions:
- What pushed you to start your blog?
- Favourite animal and why?
- What’s your advice for new blogs – 1 do and 1 don’t
- What top 3 things would you tell your teenage self?
- What’s your Favourite TV show
- Which TV show can’t you stand
- What’s the best chocolate bar?
- Dinner or Tea – what do you call your evening meal (there is only one correct answer lol)?
- How do you practice self care?
