Blog URL Emily Writes
What is your blog about?
Lifestyle, beauty, books, recipes, mental health, tips…anything and everything I want to write about – but to label my blog I’d say lifestyle
Is this your first blog?
I’ve used tumblr, and a blog years ago that I just posted pictures on – nothing serious at all
When did you start your current blog?
My first post was April 2014, however I really got into blogging in January although I didn’t start promoting my blog at all until May/June time and since then I’ve done a lot more.
What made you do it?
I like reading blogs, and I like writing so I thought I’d give it a go and I love it!
What was your first blog post about?
It was an awkward ‘hello and welcome’ post that was only a small paragraph long.
What do you think is the most useful tool to you as a blogger?
Apart from Blogger – without it I wouldn’t have a blog! – I’d say Twitter. It’s so easy to share my blog, and meet other bloggers in the community on Twitter.
Do people in your real life know about your blog? If yes, has your blog helped you career wise?
Yes they do. I’m a university student at the moment, so it hasn’t helped yet. But I like to think that in the future it will, I think that blogging shows good time management, as well as creativity.
What has been the one thing (blog post, project, etc) that you have been really proud of?
I’m really proud of the mental health posts I’ve written, I’ve had messages and tweets from people saying that those posts have really inspired them which fills me with glee!
Where do you see your blog in a year?
Hopefully with a wider following and continuing to gain readers, but still following the general lifestyle theme. As I learn more I think it’ll look more polished as well.
What do you wish you knew when starting your blog?
How much hard work it is! I really didn’t think that it would take so much time, but it’s so rewarding to see people read the posts that have taken such a long time.
What do you wish you know more about now?
HTML and SEO, I still don’t understand either of those and I really wish I did.
How do you keep motivated to post?
I love writing. It’s as simple as that. Even without anyone reading my blog I think I’d still post because keeping my blog going and wring and photographing for my blog just makes me so happy.
Anything else you’d like to add?
I hope you enjoy having a look at my blog!
