3rd Blogiversary: Q&A

Three year blogging anniversary tag, including a question and answer post

This August marks the third anniversary for my blog. My first blog post was published on 20th August 2015, but I spent all of July and August researching about blogging and all other things related. I am very proud of my blog. My blog is a very special place for me because it allows me to write about things I am passionate about. I have soo many ideas that I still want to put in action, but they require a lot of time and commitment. I have finally been able to get a blogging schedule which works for me. I thought this year, I would do a q&a all about blogging. 

1. What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve? 

Spam comments and automated direct messages. 

2. What do you do when you have writers block? 

I take time off. There are times where my head is filled with ideas and I can't stop the flow, and other days I have a block. So, I just take a step back. Go for a walk, unwind, and look at inspirational and motivational speeches/posts/videos. The best thing for me is to relax because personally, stressing out isn’t going to help me. 

3. What’s your ‘must have’ app for blogging? 

Word document. I cannot rave enough about it. The app on the phone is quick and easy for when I’m outside and just feel like writing. When I’m on my laptop, the documents on my phone can be transferred to my laptop quickly and easily. The updated word even has a ‘dictate’ which basically allows word to write what I’m speaking!! How crazy. I have been looking and wanting something like this for the last 6 months so, I love it! It’s definitely one of my top must have apps. 

4. What’s your favourite social media platform? 

Twitter. I just find Twitter to be the easiest social media platform to maintain. 

5. If you could create an app what would it be? 

I would love a blogging app which has everything blogging related in it. A section to schedule blog posts and social media. A section for blogging and how to improve your blog. A section for photography. A section for blogging opportunities, and all other things related to blogging. I would love to create an app like that. But, if someone else knows an app like this or is going to make one then please leave a link to the app in the comments section. 

6. What do you wish you could do more of? 

Communicating with other bloggers and my community. 

7. What’s the most helpful thing you have learned about blogging? 

I haven’t learned this, but I have found a blogging schedule which works for me, and it’s the most helpful thing ever! I feel relieved when I don’t have time to write because I know something is going up on my blog so I don’t need to worry. 

8. What’s the one tip you could tell others who are new to blogging? 

Don’t be scared, anyone can blog and don’t take notice of what other people say. It’s your blog so take pride in it. If you ever need help, feel free to send me a message! 

9. List the best thing about blogging 

It’s my blog so I can talk about anything. I love how there are soo many different individuals out there, writing about different things! There is something for everyone and I love that! 

10. List the worst thing about blogging 

Not having enough time for blogging, because life happens. 

11. What is something you would like to improve on for next year? 

Connecting more with my community and reading other blogs. I miss interacting with my favourites and other blogs I enjoy reading. I really truly miss it and would love to improve on it during the next year. 

12. What’s your blogging aim for the year ahead 

To create more blog posts which I enjoy writing and interact more with others! 

13. If you had more time for blogging what would you do? 

Write and interact more with others. 

14. What’s the highlight of your blogging journey? 

Being invited to be a part of the Empowered Muslim Women Summit with other inspirational women. It was outside of my comfort zone, but I loved it! I really enjoyed the experience. 

I really want to thank you all for reading my blog. If you weren’t reading my blog, then I wouldn’t keep writing and I’m very thankful. This is one of my favourite hobbies which allows me to escape and dive right into writing about things that I am passionate about. Thank you so much! 

Thanks for reading! 
Until next time, take care and keep smiling.
