Tell us a bit about yourself and your blog
My name is Mariah, I am 27 from Melbourne, Australia. My blog is a little bit of everything to be honest I don’t try and just post to one niche i.e beauty etc I try and do all kinds of different types of posts because I like to mix it up for myself and my readers. I am not just into one thing so why should my posts just be based on one topic.
How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for 2 years this July
What or who inspired you to create your blog?
To be honest it all started whilst I was watching an episode of sex & the city, I have always liked to write but have never really had an outlet to do it as I am not the best writer so after watching an episode of sex & the city I created an email address & started my blog and that was that
What’s your favourite thing about running your blog?
My favourite thing would be the freedom to write about whatever I want and when I want to as well. You’re your own boss which I quite like.
How do you stay motivated?
It is hard sometimes to stay motivated & it’s something that I do struggle with but I try to always set aside time each week to work on my blog & I just put on some music and just work away so I don’t get distracted. I also find being apart of blogger support pods also helps to keep me motivated.
What’s been the most challenging part of your blogging journey to date?
I think at the start I underestimated what it takes and the time it takes to do blog posts & to be a blogger. Its not just the actual writing post part but you then also have to promote your posts on various social media which all takes time.
As I work full time I really want to work hard this year to keep the balance between work/private & blogging life so I can keep up to date with all as I find that very challenging.
Tell us about your favourite blog post
My favourite blog post to date would be the post about my miscarriage as hard as a topic as that was to talk about it really helped me so much to that date I had never spoke about my miscarriage openly and at that stage not many people knew that I had even had a miscarriage whereas now I have no issue with talking about it openly and honestly with my friends and family and posting about it to my blog really helped me heal from that experience
Describe your blog in four words
Random, fun, honest & raw
What are your future hopes and dreams for your blog?
I do hope that one day my blog can be what I do full time when I have kids & that I can continue to grow my followers and readers. I hope that my blog can a be a place that people can go to, to escape or get advice from.
