Virtual Blog Tour

Virtual Blog Tour - Why I Blog

(Pssst! You can find me over at The Blog Baton today on Instagram! Come follow along!)

Last week, Carly from Carly Blogs Here emailed me about participating in the Virtual Blog Tour! It sounded so fun, and I love hearing about other bloggers, why they blog, and the process behind it! Carly has one of my favorite blogs to read, so when she wanted to include me I immediately said yes! Head her way so you don't miss out on some awesome posts! 

Now for the questions!

---> What am I currently working on?

I have learned so much about social media, but I still have so much to learn! My blog doesn't have a twitter yet, which will probably be changing in the very near future! I am always searching pinterest for tips on blogger and how they use their social media!

---> How does my work differ from other in this genre?

I think one thing that sets me apart is the variety of things I post. My blog started out more as a DIY blog and has evolved to also include beauty and fashion. I like to be honest and true to my readers, and I also like to include things that are real world to most people. This includes DIY's, how to recycle past outfits and pieces, and how to make outfits fit into everyday routines. 

---> Why do I write what I do?

This question was easy! I write what I do because I love and enjoy it! The minute I stop enjoying blogging, I won't do it anymore. But I can genuinely say that I love writing and working on posts, and hitting the publish button feels so good!

---> How does my writing process work?

I have a calender that I use to plan my posts, and I begin by going through each month and filling in the days that I am positive I know what I will post about. For instance, on Wednesday's I always do an OOTD post. So I automatically fill those in, etc. Then, as I work through each month I post about topics that interest me, that were inspired by things in my life, and ideas from readers and commenters! Some of my posts are planned way in advance, and others are more spur of the moment!

I wanted to keep this train rolling, so I chose 2 wonderful bloggers who I will be participating with in a giveaway soon! Check out their Virtual Blog Tour coming up soon! Kylie is one of my favorite outfit and fashion bloggers - she always looks so put together! And Sally has an awesome youtube channel! Be sure to check them out! Links are below!
