Why I Write - A Virtual Blog Tour

No comments:
Last week, the beautiful and hilarious Tami from Friday Morning Buzz shared all about what and why she writes for her blog, and invited me to participate in this virtual blog tour answering the same set of questions. If you've been living under a rock and aren't familiar with Tami:
Tami is a 26-year-old news anchor turned PR professional who lives in South Florida. Her blog, Friday Morning Buzz, is a random collection of rants and raves, funny anecdotes, endless dog stories, and pretending to have it together at her Monday thru Friday 9-5. 
 Thanks so much to Tami for tagging me! Now let's just get into it shall we?

What am I working on?
Long days and a new spiffy camera have got me sharing more outfit posts recently, but expect to see some new DIY content coming down the pipeline in the near future! I’m in the process of redecorating and looking forward to sharing some of the ways I am keeping my budget down. If there is anything that you would like to see in particular, don't hesitate to let me know!


 How does my work differ from others in the genre? 

In terms of fashion and beauty everyone comes to the table with their own wants and needs - different hair, skin, body types, etc - so I think it's necessary to read about more than one perspective on the something to see if it would work for you. In my opinion you can never have enough inspiration! I also studied media and graphic/web design so half the fun of putting together posts for me is the design aspect. Does that even answer the question?


Why do I write what I do?

The simple cliche answer: because I want to! I created this little space on the internet to be an outlet for my creativity and passions. I used to be a dancer and fell in love with the beauty industry at a very young age because of how amazing it could make you feel before you stepped out on the stage. Most of my friends in real life don’t share this particular passion so it has been wonderful being able to interact with a community of you who do!


How does my writing process work?

I’ll let you in on a little secret: I am a naturally disorganized person. I set myself a goal this year of working on follow through, and let me tell you – blogging has definitely been a big part of that. If I think up an idea when I’m near a computer, I will create a draft post with notes on what to fill in later. When I’m on the go I use the Notability app on my phone. I also have an editorial calendar that I was inspired to create by a post I read a month or two ago that is full of potential post ideas based on significant dates in the coming year. It’s really been an amazing resource!


I try to get any photography and graphic design done in advance when I have access to my equipment/programs and natural light, but I tend to work the best under pressure so most of my writing happens the day before or the day of posting. I’m proud to say I’ve been able to keep up with posting 3 days a week for quite a while now! That's pretty big for me.

Next stops on this virtual blog tour:
