Help I'm a Blogger! (Meme)

posted in: General Post, Personal | 0

A good friend of mine and fellow blogger recently realised, after over a year in the blogging game, that she is in fact a blogger. Alison runs Dragon’s and Fairy Dust, a fab blog full of reviews and other stuff. Anyway, following her realisation she started a meme and tagged me – so now I need to answer her questions…

What is your blog about?

I always describe Splodz Blogz as my “everything blog”. It is about any subject I am interested in at the time of writing – including photography, travel, outdoors, gadgets, food, fashion and of course bunnies.  I write reviews of products I’ve been able to test out but it’s not just a review blog, it’s also about my journey through life – life is all about the journey after all.

When and how did you start blogging?

Splodz Blogz started on 7th January 2010 after I wanted a way to share what was my latest personal challenge – a year in photos. It wasn’t my first blog, though, I have used blogs before to follow challenges such as my ride on a Harley Davidson from John O Groats to Land’s End to raise money for charity. Since I started posting a single photo each day Splodz Blogz has come a long way.

What was your first post?

That was titled, funnily enough, “The First Post” and was followed swiftly by my first set of Year in Photos pictures.

The First Post

Does blogging affect your life and if so how?

Yes. Blogging is absolutely a part of my life now. It has slowly but surely taken over the majority of my ‘spare time’. I am a hobby-blogger so this is what I do to relax, for enjoyment. The reviews take the most time – my other half knows that anything that gets delivered can’t be opened or used until I’ve had chance to take photographs. I like to give things a proper try before writing about them, and so sometimes there can be a pile of stuff in the spare room waiting to be looked at. It’s all good though – I write because I like it, and if for some reason I don’t feel like writing one weekend then I don’t. Blogging very rarely provides me with deadlines, or stresses, it’s just what I do because I want to.  So yes, taken over a bit, but in a good way.

What do you love most about blogging?

I love the fact that blogging has opened doors for me. People read and comment on what I write. Companies have enough faith in my writing to send me things to try out. I hope the doors continue to be opened via this outlet.

So there you are… I hope you’ve found something out!

In order to continue this meme for Alison I need to tag some other blogs that I like to read:

I look forward to reading about how you started blogging soon!
