Tell us a little about you (the person behind the blog).
My name is Mindy and I am currently going to be a junior is high school. I live in a small unknown town, but it is my dream one day to be able to study and live in the Big Apple aka New York! I love the city life and of course all the shopping that can be done there! Although I seem quite into looking pretty on my blog, in real life I am also super active. Sports wise, I do cross country, tennis, and I used to do gymnastics as well. I run 5-6 days a week during the summer, do tennis 4 times a week and practice gymnastics daily. As you can see, sports are my life. (well during the summer at least!)
Tell us about your blog.
I recently just started my blog (on Friday the 13th of July!) and it’s mainly focused on fashion, daily outfits, makeup, product reviews. There will also be days where I write about other stuff as well or whatever I feel since I am just getting started and learning my way. If my blog every does take off, I would love to be able to use it to make a difference!
What inspired you to first start writing your blog?
I have read many blogs before deciding to start my own. The thought has always been in the back of my mind and I have had a few previous blogs, but I gave up on them. I chose to restart my blog since I would love to be able to document my life and share ideas with others. I love discovering new products and fashion trends so I decided, why not write about them!
How has blogging affected your life?
Blogging has made me more aware of things. It’s hard to explain, but when I read something I like on someones blog and I notice it in real life, I get excited. Although I just started, I feel like blogging would be able to make me a better writer and help me voice my opinions better. I’m not the best at writing and getting my thoughts through via words, so I am hoping blogging could help me with that.
What has been the biggest challenge you have faced with your blog?
That has definitely got to be finding the time to blog! I am quite busy sometimes and it takes time to blog. I have to think about post, take pictures, and write the actual post. When I get comments, I always like to reply back to it so it consumes a lot of my time some days. I think in the end though, it will be rewarding so I keep at it!
What advice would you give to new bloggers?
I would tell them to keep at it! Blogging takes time and there will be times when you want to give up, but don’t! I would tell new bloggers to write about something they like since then it will be more enjoyable. For me, I try to reply to every comment I get since I feel that if a person has time to read and comment my blog, I should at least be able to write a reply to them. Doing this also keeps readers coming back =)
