Hmm… I’m starting to think that this post should really be called behind the post which is a lot like a behind the scenes instead it’s more appropriate for a blogger. Be sure to let me know what you think as I have no idea on what to call it. I’ve been wanting to do a get to know me sort of post for a while now when I came across the idea of doing a post all about my blog by focusing on the stuff that I don’t really talk about in my posts. I have created a perfect little tag post to inform our reader’s the important information about the details of our blog. Please correct me if there is an existing tag like this already created. So, let’s begin…
I have created a short Behind the scenes of a blogger video from my latest post that I published which is A Simple Transition From Summer To Autumn. It took me some time to get ready and take the relevant photos that I wanted to add with the post to give it that extra touch. I left the camera rolling to give you an idea of what it’s like for me to film and take photos of myself… IT’S VERY DIFFICULT!!
This tag has 4 simple requirements:
- Thank the person who has tagged you to do this challenge by mentioning them in your post.

What Inspired you to create a blog and publish blog posts?
I have been greatly inspired by fellow bloggers such as Zoe Sugg and Poppy Deyes who I absolutely adore. I enjoy reading their posts as well as following them on social media and YouTube. It was when I stopped making YouTube videos with my friend when I realised how much I love creating posts and content for people to enjoy for themselves. I love how everyone can make their blog their own and unique just like a diary full of memorable dates with thoughts and feelings which I love to look back on.
How long have you been blogging for?
I have been blogging on this blog/website for 4 months now, since April, with WordPress.
Have you had any other blogging websites?
Yes, I first created a blog using Blogger in June 2017 which only had about 7 posts on. I didn’t have a clue about what I wanted to blog/post about. It was all a bit random and a bit mish-mash. I knew for a while though that blogging is what interested me and I wanted to try it for myself. I slowly began to publish less frequently due to studying at Winchester university which is why by October I had stopped blogging. It was when I was close to finishing my first year in April when I decided that I wanted to start blogging again and this time by really pushing myself to create a website that I love.
I started off by creating a website using Wix.com as it was recommended to me as one of the best hosts for blogs and photography websites which if you know me sounds absolutely perfect. When my website was up and running on Wix, I received numerous messages about how it was either not loading, crashing and my photographs were very blurry. This really upset me which is why I spent days trying to fix it and do everything I could to make sure everything was working properly. Unfortunately, it only appeared to work and flow properly on my desktop when I was signed in.
My next option which to be honest would have been my last attempt was trying WordPress. WordPress is absolutely incredible. I would never use another website for my blog ever again!!!! WordPress is easy to navigate, creates perfect blogs, you can use it for free and everything runs smoothly; even high-quality photographs and videos. I wish I was introduced to WordPress from last year as I believe that I would have kept it up and running throughout my time at university.
Where do you see yourself and your blog in 5 years time?
I would be very proud of myself if in 5 years time I had graduated from university pursuing my dream job as a Drama Teacher. I see my blog still being up and running with a lot more useful content and regular readers. I would love to make it a more of an educational blog filled with resources to help others pursue their dreams. If a lot more comes out of my blog, then I would be thrilled and over the moon.
What message are you trying to get across within your blog posts?
I think it’s pretty clear to state that every blog post I publish is very different, if not random. I write posts that interest me on that particular day. Some days I could talk forever about fashion or travel or just completely about myself. I like how my posts aren’t predictable as their not always about the same topic. However, I do think it’s important that every post has a start, middle and an end which gives the reader a purpose and understanding for them reading that post.
Do people from school, college, uni or work find your blog?
Yes, some people from university found my blog and others found out about it through social media. I’m not ashamed of blogging, nor am I shy to tell people. If I am very passionate and interested regarding something then I will get that across to my friends and family. The comments I have received so far on my blog and about my blog have been very positive which keeps me motivated and happy to share what I love doing.
What does your username mean?
My username is BryoniBurnsBlog.com which is quite straightforward if you know me. Bryoni is my first name and Burns is my second name. I decided to name is Bryoni Burns Blog as it would be the first one up there in the search engine if people were to type my name in and/or search for the blog if they wanted to find it. I couldn’t really think of something interesting or unique which is why I just stuck with my name. I have been thinking about whether or not to change it. Let me know if you have any ideas.
Who are your favourite bloggers?
WOW! This is going to be a long list as I have a lot of bloggers who interest me and inspire me to blog about what I love. I don’t want to list too many so I will narrow it down a little bit. It’s amazing how every blogger is so different in their own little way. It’s great how we can all do the same kind of posts, but yet they are all completely different. I love blogging so much and I love reading all your blog posts. I am sorry that I can’t tag everyone who I love reading.
Here are my nominations:
I hope you enjoyed reading this post to get to know a little bit more about me and my blog. I am looking forward to reading your BEHIND THE SCENES OF A BLOGGER post. Just have fun with it like I did and make it your own. If I didn’t tag you and you want to do this then go ahead and do it. Everyone remember to tag BehindTheScenesOfABlogger so I can find them easily and have a little read.
