I thought this would be a great way to support other bloggers out there finding their way through the industry. Also helpful for individuals who are not sure whether you begin blogging or not because it can be difficult. I have partnered up with a few bloggers and asked them some questions that may help you all out. Here’s the first of my few interview answers to come!

- Tell me a little about yourself and your blog?

I hope to have my own design business in the future, I hope to inspire others to really go for their dreams despite the obstacles in the way.
- What are your overall thoughts on the blogging industry?
I think it’s brilliant, collaborating with other, being able to share all the things I love with others and just have a record of it for myself, It’s a great purpose to go out in the world and do all the things I love
- How do you keep yourself organized and motivated when blogging?
I plan my blogs ahead, I plan week by week so that I don’t end up getting myself so stressed I can’t handle everything there is to do. And as for motivation, I don’t specifically go out and search for motivation because I absolutely love doing what I’m doing and Im costly exciting to write my next post.
- Are you working as a full time blogger? If not, do you plan to?
I am not a full time blogger and who knows where time may take me? I’d like to think so some time in the future.
- How do you stay inspired to post, do you have a little mantra?
I am inspired everyday by the people and the environments which surround me. there are so many things I love doing and I want to do. Im usually thinking of blog posts months ahead!
- Any advice for bloggers out there, or individuals wanting to start?
The only advise I would give would be to DO IT! do it without the intentions of anything coming of it but because you love it !!!
