Questions from Sophie:
1.) What made you take the leap and start your blog?
I started blogging in 2012. I wanted to raise awareness of dissociative identity disorder, and mental illness in general, my blog took off from there.
2.) Are you aiming to progress your blog into a full time job or keep it as a hobby?
I just want to keep it as a hobby. I am definitely not looking to make big bucks from it.
3.) What are your favourite kind of blog posts to read?
My favourite is generally anything mental health-related.
4.) What are your favourite kind of blog posts to write?
Mental health related posts, or life updates.
5.) Do you feel your blogging experience has impacted you positively? Why/why not?
Definitely. It provides a sense of community that I wouldn’t be able to access any other way, and it’s something productive to devote my time to.
6.) Are the people in your life (outside of the blogging community) supportive of your blog?
Most of them dont know I have a blog. I prefer to keep it like that too.
7.) What advice would you give to fellow bloggers who are just starting out?
Be real. Be honest. Be you.
8.) If you could go back to when you first began your blog, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
The same as in the previous question.
9.) What is your top tip for growing a blog?
Engage with other bloggers, post to your social media if you have facebook, twitter etc.
10.) How many blog posts do you post a week? Do you try to stick to a schedule or just post when you feel like it? I’ve been posting daily for most of the time I’ve had my blog. Some days I post 1 or 2 posts, on other days I post more. It really all depends. I schedule some posts, sometimes. If I am busy or have things I need to say that I may forget to write about, when I think of them I schedule the posts ahead of time.
I nominate anyone who wants to play along to answer these questions!
