PERSONAL | The Tell Me More Tag

I thought it would be nice to do a more personal post today or a post 'about me' as I haven't done one in a while now! I spotted this tag on I'm Just A Girl's blog, although the tag was originally created here.

I haven't actually been tagged to take part - so I won't be tagging anyone - but it's always fun to answer a quiz, no? I used to be addicted to the Myspace quizzes...

Formidable Joy | Formidable Joy Blog | Personal | The Tell Me More Tag

WHAT'S YOUR REAL REASON FOR BLOGGING?Well I actually first started blogging as a way to have something to coincide with my dissertation at university, which was to create a print magazine. But I'd been reading blogs for a while before that and considering starting one; I was just too scared I guess because I didn't think I had it in me. Now, my main reason for blogging is, well, I'm not sure really. Currently, I feel like I do it more for me than anyone else; I enjoy writing and growing my blog, but of course I want people to read my content too.

BEST THING ABOUT BLOGGING?
There are a few things. The community, how helpful it is to write and get your feelings out and just having something to look back over, to see all your memories from the past few years etc. I also enjoy the opportunities I get and the fact that I have something to call my own.

WORST THING ABOUT BLOGGING?
I'd definitely say the pressure. It's so easy to compare your blog to others and feel like it's not good enough. I can't tell you how many times I've read news about a big blogger and wondered what the point of my own blog is. But, I enjoy it and I do it for me.

PROUDEST MOMENT SO FAR?
My relaunch at the start of 2016 and realizing I'd been running a blog for five years at that point. It's crazy that I've kept it up all that time, despite setbacks such as irregular posting, running out of content ideas and not being entirely successful. 

WHAT ARE YOUR ULTIMATE BLOGGING GOALS? DON'T BE SHY!
Haha. It's hard to specify really, as obviously I'd like to be more successful but how can you define success? I'd love to be a bigger blogger so that I can grow my audience and work on more opportunities, but I wouldn't want to be on the level of Zoella fame. I'd love to be the first blogger to take part in Strictly Come Dancing, haha! I'd also like to publish my own book but not related to my blog, if that makes sense.

IF YOU RELEASED A BOOK, WHAT GENRE WOULD IT BE?

IF YOU RELEASED PRODUCTS, WHAT WOULD THEY BE? HOMEWARE, BEAUTY, OR SOMETHING UNEXPECTED?
Hmm, maybe homeware? I'm really into homeware lately but I don't think I'd be very good at designing it.

WHAT WOULD YOU NAME THE PRODUCTS AND WHY?
No idea. I'm terrible with names. I'd probably team up with my sister and release products with her and make her come up with the name, haha.

WHAT HAS BLOGGING TAUGHT YOU?
To concentrate on yourself/your own blog - focusing on others is rarely ever a good thing, unless it just helps challenge you and inspire you. It's taught me about both the good and bad side of the internet and I've learned tons of skills related to HTML, social media, SEO etc, as well as working with brands.

SUM UP YOUR BLOG IN THREE WORDS?
Edgy (sometimes!) I hope - I like to believe I focus on different posts sometimes. Honest, and down to earth. Yes, I'm aware that down to earth is actually three words, but you get my point..

So there we go. The 'Tell Me More Tag', all about my blog! If you'd like to take part yourself, please do leave me a comment so I can come read!
