The Blog Tour Award

blog2

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!

The Rules:

  1. Pass the tour on up to four other bloggers.
  2. Give your nominees the rules and a specific Monday to post
  3. Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do.
  4. 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!

I nominate:

Love from Al x – This blog is full of great beauty, fashion and travel tips and it is absolutely GORGEOUS

Four Camels and a Coffee to go – This blog is written by a woman who just moved to Egypt, I love following her story!

Amanda Rose Beauty – A beauty blog with tons of reviews – I also love the way it’s written… almost like a lab report

Style Domimation – A beautifully professional blog with great pictures and great content.

Monday to post – July 6th (if you can!)

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!

One thought on “The Blog Tour Award

  1. Yay! So glad you did this – and thank you for your lovely words about my blog! I’m the same way with writing drafts here. I find it easier than on word docs because they’re all in one place. I’m so excited that you’ll have more DIY and art posts for the summer and can’t wait to read them!! xx
