I was tagged by Jenn over at A Little Bit Of Girl Geekery. xoxo
ABOUT YOUR BLOG (Please be specific in your answers, so we can all learn something!):
- How long have you been blogging? 6 months, I started the last week of June 2013
- Are there any bloggers who helped you out/encouraged you when you first started your blog?
I had a handful of ladies who always commented on my posts, which really kept me going through the first month or so until I got the hang of it!
- What Social Media has given you the most traffic to your blog? Is there a platform that you don’t use? My stats show Pinterest has sent me the most social media traffic, Pinterest counts right >:)
- How often do you post? Do you have a regular schedule? I try to stick to my Tuesday Thursday Sunday, but sometimes I get busy and can’t post on those days. Or I get these tags, which I write-up and usually post the day I get them, or shortly after.
- Where do you blog? On my dual screen desktop. Wooo fancy pants, writing blog posts and watching Twitter on the other screen. 😛
- What camera do you use? What photo editing software do you use? Nikon D3100, I love my camera.. I only wish I could use a wireless remote with it. No Nikon had a brain fart on my model.
- How did you come up with your blog name? It is my first initial and last name spelled backwards. A.Boswell. Yeah I suck with names and often go with reverse words.
- Do you do any regular “series” posts on your blog? I do a Fun Sunday, where my husband or son can pick a color combo or general idea. Or I just do whatever and post it. I’m also working on a half face series to show what makeup actually does.
- What draws you to a blog? The content, I want to read about things that I like. The person writing has to have some personality.
- What turns you off of a blog? People who post things for the traffic the search terms bring. People who post sales ads from their emails, people who post FOTD posts, with no pictures…. what?
- How many blogs do you subscribe to? Are they all beauty related? A lot I think, not all beauty. Some food, writing blogs, life blogs.
- When do you generally read blogs? Whenever I’m sitting at my computer.
- What is your favorite type of post, and why? I like reviews, empties, and FOTD posts.
- What is your least favorite type of post, and why? See #10, probably the people who post things that are popular for search term hits. Example: Naked 3 just dropped, I had a blurb about it in a post about something else, some people typed up whole posts, stole pictures from blogs who had the palette long before the announcement. Launched a whole post full of search terms, and like 12 words. I typed up a whole post about MAC launching a Maleficent collection to go with the movie, but it’s a whole real post.
NOW ABOUT YOU!! (If any are any you prefer not to answer, just skip!):
- Where do you live? Tell us a bit about your city! I live in a small boring town in NC, thankfully I am 1-2 hours from all major cities in this state.
- What about your home? We rent a giant house from a church. It used to be their parsonage and we think a funeral home based on the length of the rooms (our living room is long and skinny, perfect for chairs and a casket in the front of the room) There is a graveyard about 50 yards from us, it’s all good though hubby has family buried in there.
Do you have a “day job”? Nope, I’m a housewife. So I guess I do have a “day job” and its washing my boys socks and undies. YAY! >:)
How tall are you? 5’6 1/2
- Do you have siblings? 1 sister
- 3 words to describe yourself. Bright, rude, loveable
- Who is your style icon, and why? Don’t have one, never have. I don’t go with trends. I buy things I like, and wear them.
- 3 favorite bands/musicians. David Bowie, Korn, Journey
3 favorite movies. A Nightmare on Elm Street, Casino, Scarface
3 favorite books. Night, Tell Me Your Dreams, Game of Thrones series.
- 3 random/weird facts about you. My favorite color is green, all greens even the poop colored ones. I have a cat, but I’m allergic to cats. I really don’t like people that much!
