In today’s post, I am going to be doing the Lifestyle Blogger Tag and I was kindly tagged by my friend Connor. Please make sure to go and check out his blog. There’s a few questions that I will answer that are based around blogging and my experience on it.
When did you start blogging and what made you start?
I first started blogging around late April in 2016 and only uploaded my first post and then never managed to continue or update because of finals but I recently got back into it since September 2016. I started blogging because I wanted to try it out and knew my interests would be found in blogging because it’s a platform where I could be creative and write about things that I enjoy.
How did you come up with your blog name?
I came up with the name ‘possiblysami’ from my Instagram username. This was just something random and I guess that pretty much explains me and what I’m like haha. It’s nothing too personal, just something that I kept as my instagram username.
Who is your favourite lifestyle blogger?
This is a tricky question since there’s so many wonderful and creative lifestyle bloggers out there but people like Zoella, Niomi Smart, Angelika and Emily definitely have to be my favourites! There’s so many people I could mention who are amazing lifestyle bloggers but we’d be here all day.
Where do you get inspiration for your posts from?
I think I mainly get my inspiration for my posts from other bloggers because they create amazing content and also youtubers. It depends, but if I’m feeling inspired by a book, song, makeup product or whatever, I will feel like writing a blog post.
What was your first blog post about?
My first blog post was actually introducing myself and telling my audience who I am and what I was going to blog about.
What are your favourite things to write about?
I think my favourite things to write about are things that I’ve been enjoying recently or an experience that I wanted to share with everyone. I usually write and share my personal favourites.
What advice would you give to a lifestyle blogger who is just starting out?
My advice would be to experiment and be creative in what you produce. But if you’re just at that starting process, try not to rush into anything too much and try and get a firm idea of what it is that you want to do and be able to achieve.
Is there anything you wish you could change about your blog?
I definitely would prefer to go self hosted as it entitles me to do so much more with my blog and I can make it more personal and really get to experiment with my layout, content and so on.
Recommend 2 lifestyle bloggers
I would definitely recommend Emily, Harriet, Connor, Angelika, Becca, Enigma, Terri, Jade and Tyler. There are so many more amazing lifestyle bloggers out there but these are a few of my personal favourites.
I hope you all enjoyed this tag and I would like to tag anyone out there who is a lifestyle blogger! If you do happen to do this tag, please make sure to send me your links so I can read them. Have a happy day and count your blessings!
Love always, Sami x
