Okay, so this is the very first award that I received and I couldn’t be more excited! I was nominated by the lovely Molly @ Mind of Molly, so thank you, Molly! I think this award is a really great way to motivate and appreciate (us!) bloggers. Sometimes, we write contents, we design graphics, we do endless shameless self-promo and it can get really exhausting, especially when no ones around to read them! So, it feels really nice that after all of those hard work, it pays off when you get an appreciation that shows you’re welcomed in this amazing community. So, again, don’t forget to check out Molly’s blog because she’s a great blogger and her contents are amazing!
1. What do you blog about?
I blog about books, movies and series! I just started this blog last month, so I haven’t post that much. But, I’d love to write more about lifestyle related post in the future, y’know? My life as a college student, beauty and skincare products that I used, my blogging experiences, and et cetera, et cetera.
2. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I love to write and it feels therapeutic, especially whenever I feel stressed. It helps me to get to know myself a bit more during the process. And not just writing, but also the whole aspects of blogging, basically. Designing your graphics, thinking about your blog branding, learning basic HTML/CSS even though you have to Google them for hours and hours, meeting fellow bloggers especially those who has the same interests with you and all that stuffs are really fun experiences for me!
3. Is there anything in life you regret?
As cheesy as it sounds, most things that I regret in my life are the ones that I didn’t end up doing. I really hate myself for being a coward in the past.
4. Savoury or sweet?
Sweet all the way!
5. Who inspired/inspires you the most?
My parents (obviously?!) and lots of fictional characters from books or movies! I’m very easily influenced by what I read or watch, even though they’re only ‘fictional characters’. I believe there’s always something to learn from them.
6. What advice would you give to your younger self?
“Have courage and be kind.” -Cinderella (2015)
7. What advice do you have for new bloggers?
I’m not sure whether I have enough knowledge to give advice in this field. I started blogging when I was 15, but it was a very messy and unorganized personal blog. I had fun, though, not gonna lie. But, I started to take it more seriously recently. I think the only advice that I have (that I also say to myself in multiple occasion) is to not focusing on numbers and to not let those numbers define your self-worth. In this era, it’s very easy to drowns in pressure of getting as many numbers as you can, whether it’s followers or likes. I hate to admit it, but lots of times, this still happened to me and it sucks. It made me feel horrible about myself and my blog. So, what I do to overcome this issue is to just try my best and be genuine to everyone that I met in this community. And it totally works! My numbers are definitely not high at the moment, but the engagement that I got, especially on Twitter, is overwhelming! And it really made me feel appreciated after everything that I’ve done and it pushed me to keep going and improving myself.
8. Cats or dogs?
I’m a cat person but I could spend hours stalking cute puppies pics on internet.
9. Do you have a secret talent?
Does strolling around a bookstore for three hours and end up buying nothing counts?
10. Favorite movie of all time and why?
Stand by Me (1986)! I’m suck when it comes to explaining something that I really loved, because it just happened! I guess it’s one of the coming of age story that really stuck with me. I adore the friendships in this movie and it also the first time I saw River Phoenix on screen.
11. What is your favorite food?
My mom’s fried rice! Basically, anything that my mom made.
I hope the questions aren’t too hard to answer? And these are the amazing bloggers that I’d love to nominated and I’m excited to see their answers! I love their contents and pretty much obsessed with their blog, so you definitely should check ’em out! Also, don’t pressure yourself if you’ve already nominated or did this award or simply don’t want to do it! It’s not mandatory at all!
