It is an honour to say that this blog has been nominated for the Liebster Award. This is an award that is given by bloggers to other bloggers. It is a show of appreciation and a way to encourage new and upcoming bloggers. This type of award only exists on the internet and is being used by the blogging community to invigorate and help bloggers to get more recognition.
In honour of this nomination a big thanks is to be given to Mary and her awe-inspiring blog https://maryo-signature.com/. Mary’s blog gives you inspiration, a sense of security and all in all an urge to want to read more. All of this and more is attained from visiting her blog. Below are my answers to the questions given by Mary:
Give us a little insight into your blog?
Spntaneoustravells.com is about the adventures and experiences of working all week as an Au pair and going out every weekend on day trips. On a weekly basis posts will be posted about the weekend trips.
Why did you start blogging and how long for now?
Blogging has been something that has always been in the back of the mind. Reading and writing is something that is loved and done on a daily basis so it made sense to start a blog so that others could enjoy what life brings this way. So instead of keeping a personal journal (as done in the past) it dawned that others should be able to experience everything that is done and places that are travelled alongside. Spontaneoustravells.com is new and has only been up and running since 3rd March 2017.
What has been the most challenging aspect of blogging for you?
The most challenging aspect of blogging would have to be wrapping your head around the whole social media side. It’s a challenge to get people into your blog, to gather followers etc. To understand how it fully works gets your mind into a muddle 80% of the time. Maybe this because this is all new and in due course it’ll all make sense but until then it’s the most challenging aspect of blogging.
How do you motivate yourself when you feel discouraged?
Motivation is to some extent is found hard, for some it’s easy but in this case hard. To help get motivated usually the chocolate comes out and the music goes on and whatever comes to mind gets jotted down on a piece of paper. Once the first sentence is formed the rest just flows naturally. The chocolate is highly recommended; tastes so good!
What do you enjoy most about blogging?
The most enjoyable thing about blogging has got to be writing the posts the way that they are written. There is something captivating about the way that the blog posts are written; it really gets you in the mood to write more.
If you could make one wish what would it be?
There’s nothing really to wish for, everything that is needed is in front of you. Suppose the one wish that could be made is for travelling to become easier; but in saying that it wouldn’t be as stupendous as it is now as then everyone could do it. It would become the norm.
What advice would you give to people who are trying to start blogging?
Advice that would have to be given would be to make sure that you do as much research as possible into the social media side of things; for example, how to boost your blog, which social networking site works best for yourself and so forth.
Again a big thanks to Mary and my nominees for the Liebster award are:
