Todays post is similar to the one I did 3 weeks back which is a blogger Q+A but this time, with one of my best friend who is also a fellow blogger called ‘A wanderlust being’. She has had a blog for quite a while now and has some great content. She has also started a YouTube channel which is coming along nicely and i will put the blog and YouTube channel links at the end.
What’s your blog name?
The name of my blog is ‘A Wanderlust Being’.
what made you choose that specific blog name?
I had been pondering over what to name my blog for, I think, almost a year before I created my blog. I wanted something that was unique, kept my name anonymous from the title and also something that summed up what the theme to my blog would be.
How often do you post on your blog?
Honestly not often enough. I don’t think I’ll ever decide to set myself a publish date because I don’t want the pressure of having to get something published once a week or so just for the sake of it. I want to create entertaining and helpful blog posts which is why my posts are few and far between. I do hope to up my publishing game as soon as possible though.
What website do you use for your blog?
Blogger is my platform of choice! I think the only reason I chose it was because another blogger and a friend of mine uses Blogger too. I didn’t really look into the benefits of other platforms. Despite this I do like the layout of Blogger and I find it easy to navigate and use.
Do you prefer blogger or vlogging?
I prefer blogging to be completely honest. I do have a YouTube channel of the same name as my blog however there are very few videos uploaded. I’ve tried vlogging a few times but I’m too self-conscious to be talking to a camera in public. I also prefer behind behind the camera filming.
Is blogging something you want to do in the future?
Professionally no. I would love to keep this up far into the future as a hobby and share my latest adventures and interests but as for my future career I want to go into the business of film rather than blogging.
Does your blog have a specific theme?
It doesn’t at the moment. When first creating my blog I wanted to publish mostly about travelling, hence the blog title. This is still my plan however I would like to interlace cosplaying, photography, cinematography and anything else that takes my fancy along the way!
What advice would you give beginner bloggers?
Despite my blog being almost 2 and a half years old, I still consider myself a beginner blogger. I do suggest that people thinking of starting or having just started a blog should enjoy their blog. Be creative, unique and true to yourself.
Who are your blogging inspirations?
My biggest blogging inspiration is my friend Katie who is the creator of the blog Fun size Beauty (http://funsizeblogger.blogspot.co.uk) . I have been reading her blog posts from the beginning and I have to point out I am her biggest fan, ha-ha! Two other bloggers I take inspiration from are the blog Welsh Girl Problems and Holly the creator of Witch Cake, both of who I have had the honour of meeting once at a blogger’s meet up. I want to take inspiration from WGP and celebrate more local and Welsh things. I find Holly’s writing and posts to be fresh and straight forward in a way and I want to take inspiration from her to be able to talk about things that I love or feel passionate about despite what I think others may think about it.
What is the best blog post you have written?
Due to the fact I have been organising my blog and deleting a few posts I’m not happy with on my blog, I think my most popular blog post at the moment is my most recent Halloween Playlist. The blog post I’m most proud of myself though has to be Getting Back Into the Swing of Things. I really enjoyed writing that one and although I’m sure I could improve on a lot I think it’s one of my best written pieces.
