I am now in Texas, so here’s a go at the Texas Women Bloggers “Getting to Know You Link Party #2”
1. If you make money with your blog, how do you do it?
I do not make money with my blog. I would like to do so one day with fashionable (& reader friendly) ads. Whether or not it happens, OWNG will still be having a party at this URL lol.
2. How do you increase your blog readership?
I believe in getting to know different people with similar interests and letting them know about my blog. Blogger business cards come in very hand for this. I also give them to random people after we’ve had conversations, because I like to have random conversations with new people. And I give them out a blogging conferences, because that’s normal, right? Haha.
3. If you aren’t originally from Texas, what brought you here?
I am Texas Born, Arkansas Raised, and have returned to Texas in search of employment opportunities because I recently graduated from the University of Arkansas.
4. If someone were to hand you $10,000 (no strings attached), what would you do with it?
It would definitely go towards my education, and a few outfits. I plan to be a professional architect and to go to grad school to get my Master of Architecture degree. Grad school will be no walk in the park lol, but being able to easily fund it, and look good while doing it, would make life a little easier. And hey, what’s a little $10,000 to grad school? In the words of Jay Z… NOTHING! *as we bow our heads and pray*
5. If you were a color, what color would you be?
I would be the grass under your feet, the first little blooms of spring, or even the clover on a leprechaun’s jacket. Green is my most favoritest color EVER! So color me lush and luxuriously green. Feel the green. Beeeeee the green. I am one with green!
6. What are your blogging strengths? Weaknesses?
I believe my weakness lies in not narrowing down the several subjects that I touch on OWNG in order to better serve a target audience. I love all aspects of design, I’m a sustainability advocate, I love fashion, I want to share a photo of every meal from every restaurant that I go to… Love, love, love, love, OVERLOAD! I’ve narrowed my focus down and am trying to stick to regularly posting in all areas that are listed beneath my banner (scroll up, scroll up). It is hard when I just want to share all the things!!! But is that reaaaaally so bad?
I believe my blogging strength is being transparent – my blog represents my quirky, southern, artsy-fartsy, spacey, design-all self 100%. I love when readers comment and interact with me because they can relate to and like what I post about. I know I enjoy that about other bloggers, and I hope that the readers that visit my blog love that about OWNG. I also hope I can give at least one good laugh between my oh so funny comments and stories here and there (but I’m a horrible joke teller) and my amazing presentation of gifs.
Until next time, my darlings, Ci Vediamo!!!
