3 Things about me I graduated with a 2:1 BA honours in Performing Arts from Northumbria university back in 2013. I have done performing arts my whole life until the last 4 years. “Working Full Time” malarkey got in the way and I need to save to buy my dream home! With a bit of travelling along my way oops!
2. I love to sing! I’ve sung all my life I do home recording sometimes mainly covers I dabble writing my own songs but I’ve not done anything professional in over 4 years. I really miss singing I just don’t have time as I work full time.
3. I enjoy baking cakes. I am a secret too baker haha, so people tell me, my cakes are unreal! I have baked my friends children’s birthday cakes before.
Below are the 5 questions Helen chose her nominations to answer so here I go:
1. What is your reason “WHY?” for blogging?
Why did I start blogging? Suppose I’ve always wanted to just get most of my thoughts out. I like to help people. I am very much for making this world a more positive place to live with a lot of laughs along the way. I don’t believe we’ve got any seats for little Miss and Mr negative. So Ta Ta 👋🏻 I also suffer from anxiety. I went through a pretty rough patch last year and since I’ve put my foot down, full blogging speed ahead it’s actually kept my anxiety at bay. I’m sure it will appear from time to time but blogging has saved my sanity.
2. If you could only choose one social media platform to use to promote your blog, which one would it be and why?Twitter has been blog changing for me. before I was sharing on my facebook and instagram. I decided to started sharing on my twitter as I barely used it. now its a daily part of my routine and facebook has taken a couple of times a week.
3. If you could go back to when you were writing your 1st blog post – what piece of advice on writing blogs, would you give yourself?
ng> ng> ng> ng>Hmmm…..my first blog If I actually posted it. I started writing my first blog and I’ve actually only ever kept it as private.I was scared to post. Advice, don’t be scared to post. You are You and no-one else so whatever you write will be apart of YOU. Never self-doubt your own strength. (It’s about a 3 week holiday my partner and I went on to America.)
4. What is the best app you use for your blogs media? (creating images, logos, banners, pins etc) I don’t actually have any apps for my blog so I need some advice on these. but for my instagram used Whitagram. this is perfect for creating the perfect white border for your photos. You can also edit them which is great. My friend Claudia told me about this app and I’ve never looked back.
5. (funny or weird question) If you had to choose a holiday destination that best summed up your blog, where would it be and why? Vegas favourite place to go and my blog is whatever I want it to be. nothing is wrong. As they say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. whatever I write on my blog stays on my blog.
