By far, the thing I receive the most questions about is blogging. Given the fact that I love blogging and am always curious to learn more about other people’s blogging processes, I am always happy to answer them. So, today I thought it would be fun to ask you to ask me anything you could think of that was related to blogging!
Presenting my blogging Q&A!
How did you come up with the name of your blog?
I honestly can’t remember how exactly I came up with my blog name, but I can tell you it took me a long time. In fact, it was one of the biggest obstacles I faced when I decided to start a blog. Eventually, I decided to sit down and think about what I wanted my blog to be about, which I realized was anything and everything I had on my mind. Currently, Lately came to me during that brainstorming session.
What made you start your blog?
Blogging was always been something I had been curious about. I love writing and fashion, so in the back of my mind, a little voice was always saying “hey, maybe I should start a blog.” I decided to turn that thought into action in August of 2016. It was without a doubt one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
Where do you see yourself a year from now?
(Hopefully) self-hosted. Although I’m not sure it will happen, it’s good to aim high, right?
How do you stay motivated to keep blogging?
I don’t always. Motivation is one of those things that comes and goes as it pleases. No matter how much you love blogging, you’re bound to fall into a rut at some point or another. I like to always have a couple of blog posts prewritten just in case this happens. It helps me make sure I never run out of things to post.
What’s your best piece of blogging advice?
I wrote a post a while back all about my best blogging advice. But if I were to summarize it, I would say be authentic, be engaging, and don’t be consumed in your numbers. Blogging is about more than the amount of people reading; it’s about passion, creativity, and hard work.
How long have you been blogging?
Believe it or not, I’ve been blogging for about two and a half years! The fact that it’s been that long is so wild!
Where do you get the inspiration for your blog?
For me, inspiration comes from all sorts of places. The inspiration behind my essay-style posts typically comes from personal experiences while most of my fashion and beauty content is inspired by Pinterest and fashion magazines.
How do you edit your blog photos?
I did a post about this over a year ago, but my editing techniques haven’t really changed.
What are your favorite blogging apps?
I did a post about this, too (sorry for all the links).
What’s your favorite post you’ve written?
If I had to pick, I would say that my favorite post I’ve written is the one about comparing yourself to other people online. I wanted to write that post for a really long time, so I was really happy when it finally came to fruition. Plus, it was interesting to read the comments and hear about the experiences that other people have had with self-doubt and comparisons.
Anyway, those are some of the most frequently asked questions I’ve received about blogging! If you any questions that I didn’t answer, feel free to ask and I’ll respond in the comments! Also, if you have questions for me about things outside of blogging, feel free to ask those as well.
