Welcome to my brand new ‘Meet the Blogger’ series. During this special series, I will be introducing new bloggers every Friday by creating a little profile about them. I am looking forward to this very much, as there are so many great bloggers out there and I think it is a great way for us to engage and interact with one another. If you would like to participate in this series, just give me a little message either on my social media or via email, so that I can send you the relevant documents. What’s a better way to start this series off than by myself answering these questions, so you can find out a little bit about me.
Q1. Introduce yourself, why did you start blogging?
Hey there, my name is Bryoni and I am 21-years-old. I am a full-time university student who loves blogging, photography, travelling and fashion. I started this little blog in April 2018 which was only 6 months ago. I wanted to create a space for all my random outbursts, my travel diaries, my top picks and my favourite fashion statements. Ever since my friend and I stopped making YouTube videos together, I realised that I just loved engaging and interacting with people all over the world, that have similar interests as me. I love being a part of the blogging community because it is so supportive and welcoming which makes me happy and motivated to blog about my life.
Q2. How did you come up with your blog name?
Let’s be honest… it’s not very creative. It is just my name with blog.com on the end LOL! I might change it in the future, but I am not sure what to. Give me some suggestions in the comments below of what you think I should change my blog name too.
Q3. What type of content do you generally post on your blog?
I post everything and anything. LITERALLY! Whatever is on my mind or things that I want to share, then I just will share it. It is generally a lifestyle blog about everything I am interested in. I share anything from beauty, fashion, travel and photography. I am not sure if I will ever just focus on one thing because my mind is normally all over the place. I love working on different things and keeping myself busy. Let me know what posts you think I should write about.
4. What are your main struggles as a blogger?
My main struggle is definitely fitting it time to actually write my blog posts. I wish there were more hours in a day. I work part-time and I am studying full-time too. It is difficult having to work out time to plan, write, take photos and publish a post. I feel like I am managing it ok at the moment as I am strongly motivated and very much dedicated. Posts are always published every Wednesday and Sunday at 6pm.
Q5. What are your favourite tools for blogging?
Of course, WORDPRESS…. without that I would not have a blog. I 100% recommend using WordPress if you are wanting to become a blogger or even to create a website. It is so easy to use, great for themes and just generally a pleasure to work with. Everyone who is taking part in this series will agree that Google Docs. is also wonderful. It is perfect for saving your drafts, as well as if you are sharing files with other bloggers. It is very easy to use and saves a lot of time.
Q6. What is your favourite social media site for interacting with your readers?
Definitely Twitter! It is a great way to share your posts with readers as well as access posts of other bloggers. I love following bloggers and supporting each other too. I also find that Twitter is amazing for creating polls which are great, especially for getting your readers to interact with you. I often do polls about what types of posts people would like to see or just to get opinions across.
Q7. What is your favourite post that you have written? and why?
Hmm… This is a tricky one. I haven’t actually thought about this before. I don’t even know. Ok, I haven’t been able to decide on just one so I have chosen two. This is because they are both completely different and I loved writing them for different reasons. The first one is: Why I became a Vegetarian? and the second one is: 10 Things You Must Do When Visiting Budapest. I loved writing about why I became a vegetarian as a lot of you were asking me questions about it and when I created a poll on Twitter, it had the most votes. I really enjoyed talking about this subject matter as I feel like it is important to express our views and opinions. I also loved writing about my little holiday to Budapest with my friends. It was just so wonderful and I had the best time ever. I absolutely love my friends so much. It is definitely a holiday that I will always remember forever, probably because we legit got locked in the escape room LOL.
Q8. What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about becoming a blogger?
JUST GO FOR IT!!! If you have a couple ideas or topics that you want to discuss then great. Just dive straight in and start writing. I had always thought about blogging but was so nervous to do it which is why it took me a long time to start. If you need any help or guidance, you can always ask me and if I don’t know the right answer, I will try to point you in the right direction. The blogging community is always so friendly that whenever I have ever had a problem, there is always someone to help. If you decide to create a blog after this, then please let me know as I would love to include you in my series as well as check out your blog.
That’s about it from me. If you would like to participate, please contact me either by social media or via email. I look forward to hearing from you. The moment I have been waiting for… let’s get this series started!
