I’ve realized that other than in my About Me section and my occasional posts about my thoughts and tips, I don’t get very personal here!
So, I’m going to do a brief Q&A and share a little more about me and the reason why I’m on this adventure called blogging! Let’s begin!
Question: Why did you start a blog?
Answer: I started my blog as a creative outlet following my newfound love for connecting with people via social media. It all started last spring when, at the encouragement of many friends, I started an Instagram account (now my @xoxosocialgal account) that featured local restaurants, social scenes and events. I’ve always been a social butterfly and was posting much of this on my personal account until I got the idea to start the account solely focused on sharing my love of all things social with my following. Flash forward to now, a little over a year later, and I’ve started a blog to continue connecting with people regarding social scenes, lifestyle moments and more!
Question: What do you like most about blogging?
Answer: As I mentioned, I really enjoy connecting with people and blogging has expanded that greatly! I’ve been able to use my blog as a way to express myself while also connecting with people from around the world! I also like the ownership that a blog brings. I can choose what I want to post and talk about and make it completely my own. Another amazing thing about blogging for me is that it’s something completely outside my comfort zone! I’ve never done this before and have been learning more about this process than I ever thought possible! Blogging has already taught me new skills that I would not have learned elsewhere and as someone who loves to learn, that is a huge plus!
Question: What other hobbies do you like outside of blogging and being a foodie?
Answer: It’s no secret that I love events, eating out, social scenes, etc. but I also enjoy staying in and binge watching a good show, catching a movie and cuddling up with my fiancé and/or my dog! Additionally, I volunteer a lot, serve the community in a variety of ways and sit on a few boards whose missions move me! My love for my community keeps me very busy both with my blogging and in my community service work!
Question: What are your goals for your blog/what do you hope to do with it?
Answer: My goal for the blog right now is pretty simple and that’s to provide quality content which I am really just getting started with. I read that many bloggers pre-load content in before launching but I was just so excited that I launched first then began to add my content which I am still exploring! I hope to continue to add content across my niches as well as find topics that both interest readers and excite me as a writer! Additionally at some point, I would like to eventually see if I could make a profit off blogging like so many do! First I want to continue learning as much as I can about this process then hopefully start becoming an affiliate partner and collaborating with great businesses and organizations! Time will tell if that can happen but for now, I am going to keep working hard and enjoying this blogging endeavor I am on!
That’s all for now! Thanks for reading my quick Q&A and if you have any questions for me, feel free to comment below and I will answer them!
