3 Years of Blogging and Q&A!

3y

Can you believe it? Because I can’t! 3 YEARS! When I started this blog, I was just keen on keeping it longer than a couple of months and now I can’t imagine my life without it. I met some of the greatest people through Life and Other Disasters and I am so very grateful for the support and constant encouragement. I’ve mentioned it before, but YOU are what makes this experience so much fun!

As I’ve mentioned in my May wrap-up, we’ve only recently breached the 600+ Follower milestone and Marie and Donna were kind enough to provide some questions for the Q&A which I will answer happily. If you missed your chance and still have questions (everything is fair game), you can ask in the comments and I will answer there!

Marie:

  • “I think you’ve mentioned it before, but what kind of studies did you do/ if you did?”

I studied film, TV and media production and graduated last year in July. Now I have a Bachelor of Arts in Business, which nobody knows what to do with including me. I don’t intend to go on and get a Masters degree, but maybe someday – Who knows? My studies sound quite like the creative thing, but we were mostly about numbers and statistics and how to get the funding for projects.

  • “If you could read one genre, and only one for the rest of your life, what would it be?”

TOUGH ONE! I think I want to go with Fantasy, because even though I love contemporaries, I feel like I would miss the magical element that comes with whole new worlds.

  • “What’s the best thing about book blogging? (ONE THING. It can’t be me. I wish it was, hahahahaha. Sorry, such a narcissistic moment there, I’ll shut up now, haha). 😀”

Hahaha, I was really tempted to say you, but I can say the closest thing to it – the community. I am blogging for myself, but it wouldn’t be as much fun if there were no one to talk to about it all.

  • “What’s the most important thing you learned in all those years of blogging?”

The most important thing I learned is that blogging is supposed to be fun and not an obligation. You can have a strict posting schedule and even post every day, but as soon as you just post something for the sake of posting and not because you want to genuinely share something or talk to others about a topic, the real spirit is gone. The element of fun should remain and it’s not going to be the end of the world if you ever decide to take a break or hiatus. People mostly seem genuinely happy to have you back in fresh spirits at the end of the day.

Donna:

  • “How many pairs of socks do you own?”

It’s probably well over 40 (sorry, I stopped counting somewhere along 30 …) and I am so bad with throwing socks with holes or socks that are simply worn out away that I don’t even wear half of them. There’s one of the biggest drawers in my closet dedicated to them … well, what can you do? I am bad at clothes-related stuff.

So, I want to conclude this with another THANK YOU! Here’s to many more years to come and don’t forget to ask any sort of questions that remain on your mind!

  1. Congrats!! 🎉🎈🎊 Three years sound like a terribly long time but time just flies when you’re having fun 😀 Here’s to three more years!
    I stopped counting so fast that I’m surprised you made it to 30, haha! Old and worn-out socks are cluttering up the back of my drawers, I always keep them “just in case”.

  2. HUGE congratulations again, and thank you for answering my questions! 😀 It sounds so, so cool to study all about media production, and I get that there are much more technical details about it than we imagine. I do think of it about something really creative, but I guess that’s the image we all wanna have ahah :). Maybe you’ll want to do a Masters’ degree someday, who knows 🙂 For now, you’re mostly planning on working and everything, no ? 🙂
    I definitely agree, the community makes it all worth it, and I love it! ❤ You're right about the pressure, it's hard sometimes and I feel like I have to produce content, yet when I'm not inspired, I try and take a step back, even just for a few hours, or a day, and afterwards the inspiration comes back. I feel like I have so many inspiration right now though, so I'm happy 🙂
    SO MANY SOCKS haha 😛 I love that you own so many socks, I do too, ahah, I'm kind of having a little collection of animal socks… No shame. Kind of wearing koala socks at work at times, and you know, if it shows…whatever, hahahaha 😛

  3. Congratulations on 3 years! That is such a huge achievement 😀 I definitely agree with your point about blogging. It should be fun! I think it’s great that we’re all here because we want to be, and we can engage in sincere, passionate conversations about books 😀

  4. Wow! That’s seriously incredible! Happy Blogiversary! ❤ 😀

    I definitely agree with you on not being able to imagine my life without blogging. I have been doing it for nearly a year now and it was the best decision ever! The people in this community are simply wonderful! 🙂

    • I really cannot tell you. It’s a process and you cannot expect for them to start following you over night. It’s mostly a mix of being engaged on other blogs, making friends on multiple platforms, but not really asking for followers. Your content should speak for itself.

  5. hahaha love the fact that there was a sock question and that you have 30-40 pairs of them! My weird fact is that I’m a reformed sock thief- I used to steal my brother’s socks when I was younger. I don’t even know why. Just thought I’d share that :p Congrats on 3 years of blogging!! That’s incredible!! I can’t imagine getting to that point- it’s amazing that you have!! Well done!!

  6. I thought I was the only one that struggled with throwing away those worn out full of holes socks. The effort of sorting through them is too great so I always end up buying more and leaving the rest to sit at the bottom of the overstuffed sock draw haha.
    I definitely agree that blogging should always be fun and not an obligation. The minute I feel like blogging has become like a reluctant chore is the moment I step away and re-consider things.
    Congrats on the three years!! 😀 😀 😀
