When did you start blogging?
I first started blogging during my third year of university back in 2013. At the time I was studying English and one of my modules was to create a blog on a biography I had read. I enjoyed doing it so much that after university I decided to get serious and took it up as a hobby.
Why did you start blogging?
I wanted to blog because it was a great way to record memories as I enjoy going on lots of trips and adventures. I see it as a little personal diary for me to look back on as well as a platform to share my thoughts.
Where do you get inspiration for your posts from?
Mostly I like to blog about where I’ve been or what I’ve been up to lately. I like to read lots of different blogs frequently and then try to project my own ideas from this in order to make my content have a little unique twist.
What is your favourite place that you have visited?
This is a really difficult question, there’re so many! So far I’d have to say Rome. The city is incredible and there’s so much to see and do, plus visiting sights such as the colosseum or Vatican City is just mind-blowing!
What is your favourite part about blogging?
I love taking pictures and coming up with ideas for blog posts. When you visit somewhere off of the beaten track, or you have an idea for a post that you’ve not really seen floating around the internet before, you feel yourself become inspired and you can’t wait to hit publish. Blogging gives me an opportunity to be as creative and innovative as I like.
