I am relatively new to blogging, so I am still improving on my ability to promote my blog effectively. That is why I am honoured to have been nominated by nonchalantdiva (check her great blog out!) for this award. I hope that in reading my answers to the questions, you get to know more about me and my interests.
- Thank the person/persons that nominated you and make sure to link your response back to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions your nominator gave you.
- Nominate 11 other people and give them 11 new questions to answer.
- List the rules and display the award.
- What is one of your favourite blog posts that you have made?
I only have two posts so far, but my favourite one is scars: how to live with them, how to love them. I felt empowered through writing the article, and I hoped that it also empowered people who read it.
- What is a ‘blogging rule’ that you think a blogger shouldn’t break?
Never dismiss people’s opinions and thoughts on your writing. I believe bloggers should absorb different views and use them to develop their blog in order to make them appealing to a wide range of people.
- How far do you want to take your blogging?
I hope that my blog will become a strong portfolio of my writing to show to potential employers in journalism, or other professions, in the future. I want to develop my blog into a tool that broadens my connections with other amazing writers.
- What is your blogging theme/ niche? If you have one, why did you pick this theme/ niche?
I haven’t got a very distinct niche, but my idea for my blog was to write passionately about any topic that affects many people whenever I came across it. The name of my blog, SilentOutburst, links to this idea – it’s a strong expression of thoughts and advice on a particular topic, from a place of quietude.
- Who is your favourite blogger?
The High Heeled Paper Girl – she writes very insightful and amazing articles about current world issues that I love. I would recommend for everyone to check out her blog!
- Peanut butter or Nutella?
Considering that I’ve never tried peanut butter, I’m inclined to choose Nutella!
- How long have you had your blog?
Nearly a month as of today – this time has flown by and I wish to write more posts next month as I become more confident in blog writing.
- Who is your targeted audience?
I aim to be inclusive with the topics I write about. Although I believe the majority of my audience are young adults like myself, I hope that people of all walks of life enjoy reading my posts.
- How many blog posts do you make in a week?
I aim to write atleast one article a week, but due to the chaotic nature of schoolwork and other extra curricular activities I sometimes have to post every other week. I wish to improve on this!
- Do you think using some vulgarity in your blog is a bad thing?
Personally, I try and avoid any language that has a vulgar meaning, but I suppose that this depends on what you are writing about and who for. If you are able to use vulgarity in a clever and effective way, then it isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
- Why do you love blogging?
It’s one of the few times that I am able to write about topics I am passionate about, and also learn new facts and ideas from fellow bloggers. It is a great platform for everyone to put forward new opinions that can have a positive influence on the wider world.
