I was nominated for the Blog Tour Award by Mirror The Love (if you haven’t checked out her blog, it’s a phenomenal beauty blog that focuses on cruelty-free products!) Thank you!
- Pass the tour on up to four other bloggers.
- Give your nominees the rules and a specific Monday to post
- Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do.
- Compose a one-time post on a specific Monday (date given from your nominator).
a. How does my work differ from others in my genre?
Since I am relatively new to blogging, my work differs because it is a bit sporadic and diverse. I am still working on figuring out what specific posts I want to put up, and what my readers want to see/read. Right now, it is definitely leaning toward “travel”; I finally got around to putting up posts from my adventures in Europe last summer. However, I also write about hauls, reviews, products, and Milwaukee too.
b. How does my writing/creative process work?
I write all of my content from WordPress, so when I think of a new idea, I start a “draft” for it. Then, when I feel the urge to write about that particular topic, then I open that draft and work on it. There are many times where I will work on multiple posts at once, and then just post as they come out. Since I am a 7-12 art teacher, I recently finished up school, moved, and got a dog… so my posts have been few and far between; but now that things are settling down, posts should pick back up soon!
c. Why do I write?
I write because I need to feel creative and I need to put my work out there. Going through college being a fine artist, I made things daily… I got my hands dirty, I got creative… but now that I have graduated and have a job, I find myself making things I HAVE to make, instead of things I WANT to make. I also spend a lot of time helping others on THEIR art projects… I just needed something of my own. Something to work on. Something to put out there. Something with an end result. *Spoiler* Now that it’s summer, I should be doing more DIY’s and art related posts, but more on that soon!
d. What am I working on at the moment?
First and foremost, I am working on personal matters that I have been putting off since I have been at school, but I am also working on getting more creative content on the blog, creating more art, and setting up an Etsy store. Once I accomplish something on any of these fronts, I will be sure to share with you all!

Thank you so much for reading; at first the questions seemed pretty daunting, but it was actually really fun to reflect and really think about my process. I hope you all have the same thoughts, and I can’t wait to read what you all have written!
