It’s Christmas tomorrow! *cue excitement and cheer* I had a post all written up but somehow my WordPress app decided to give it an error and lose it during a refresh =.= *annoyed look*
Anyway, seeing as it’s the festive season I will not allow this to bring my joy down. Even though I’ve given up on re-writing the post about what my plans are for Christmas (I guess I’ll just show you lot at a later date instead) or a tutorial on my Christmas nails (see my instagram pic), I haven’t throw the Christmas Eve post away. Instead I’ve noticed many bloggers have been tagged to write this ‘Confessions of a Blogger’ post so I thought I’d answer the questions myself!
When did you first start blogging and why?
I started blogging around 2000/2001 since I started a written diary, but never kept it up to date with my life events. I wanted somewhere accessible that I can easily show friends and family or someone to find when I’m gone or wanted to know more about me (slightly morbid but hey!).
Have you had any past online presence?
Yes, prior to Kekidoll.com I had kept numerous online blogs on various free domains. I was very active on Gaia, a forum with a large creative, anime and gaming community.
When did you become serious about your blog?
I had been blogging on and off and usually just reposted a lot of q&a posts before. It was only since 2011 when I decided to get my own domain that represented myself to blog on a constant basis about my life. I think I blog a lot more now that I’ve moved out to London.
What was your first blog post?
I actually don’t remember! It might have been a “hello world” post about my new blog :)
What have been your biggest challenges blogging?
Finding things to blog about and making it interesting.
What is the most rewarding thing about blogging?
Finding new blogs via comments and able to keep going for so long.
What is the most discouraging thing about blogging?
Not getting comments as often but numbers ain’t all that. Its the comments that having meaning that matter.
What is your lasting inspiration or motivation?
Blogging about interesting things I’ve done or eaten in London.
What is your blogging dirty little secret?
I don’t believe I have one.
What is your current goal as a blogger?
Blog regularly and to review a lot more items.
Have you learned or become passionate about anything through blogging that caught you by surprise?
That I like nail art and to try different designs. It can be a challenge to do!
I hope you enjoyed this. If you want to answer these questions then feel free. I tag you!
