Liebster Blog Award11:16 AM
I suffer from something called new blogger syndrome, its where you think no one actually reads your blog, but over the last 3 months that I have been blogging I have been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award several times thus curing this illness. I'd like to say sorry to everyone who nominated me for my lack of response, its been a busy 3 months. The following have been so kind:
I believe there are others so if there is just let me know and I will add you to the list! The Liebster award is a nomination based award bloggers give to other up and coming bloggers with 200 followers are less. Its a great way to drive traffic to these new blogs and I am so honored that people like my blog this much. Considering I am 1 follower away from the 200 I thought I would finally participate, and nominate 11 more bloggers.
So since so many amazing people nominated me I thought I would mix and match their questions so i answer a few from everyone.
It was actually a long process, at first it was going to be FlashBang Photography, but someone already had a company with that name so I settled on Flash[Frame], which I like so much more.
2. When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time?
I blog, typical i know. I don't get much free time between FIT, my internship and now work, so whenever I can find some time I put up a post, as you can see I have had 0 free time in the past 2 weeks.
3. What does your perfect day involve?
Sleeping in (I never get the chance to do this), seeing my boyfriend maybe getting a good cup of coffee at Joes and just napping all day.
4.What is the last book you read?
Reflected in you by Sylvia Day, it was a very interesting book if you know what I mean.
5.What inspires you to blog?
All the other blogs I read, they make me want to blog myself. Also the city, I have only ever seen a few New York City blogs and I think I have a very unique view of this city, so why not write down about my life in one of the best cities in the world.
6.What advice would you give to anyone that wants to start a blog?
Starting SUCKS. You wont gain readers overnight, or even within a month, you need make your blog stand out compared to all of the other blogs out there so whether its taking amazing photos or injecting your unique personality into your posts you need to find something to stop passers and turn them into readers.
7. What is the best gift that you have ever gotten?
There are so many and all of them are from my boyfriend; my Sam Edelman Lorrisa Pumps, also two years ago my boyfriend got my first Coheed and Cambria concert signed ticket and cd cover professionally framed.
8. Favorite food?
Pickles. Im obsessed.
Do shoes count? If they do then its my Sam Edelman Lorrisa black suede peep toe pumps.
11. If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?
21, not too old but its the first year that people start taking me seriously.
What did you want to be when you grew up, when you were little?
Many things: singer (I stopped when I realized I sound like a dying animal when I sing), teacher, doctor, and a fashion designer ( I cant draw). Eventually I had to choose, so I chose merchandising.
14. What song do you currently have on repeat?
The Hard Sell- Coheed and Cambria
15 Are you happy?
I havent always been, but right now i couldn't be happier.
