Interview with a blogger...Gemma♡

Wednesday, 15 November 2017

Hi guys! I have decided to do an Interview with a blogger series every Wednesday, and I hope you'll be able to join me! This is so fun and I hope you enjoy reading the answers! This week I am interviewing the lovely Gemma.

1) Tell me and my readers a bit about your blog and what makes you different? 

Helloo, my name is Gemma and I run a little blog called An Ocean Glimmer. I'm primarily a Beauty & Lifestyle blog but I do love to speak about Stationery and Books, as well as another passion of mine motorsports. Pretty much anything of interest to me will be on my blog, An Ocean Glimmer has come along way since I created her over two years ago now, including being nominated for a range of awards, the Unique Blogger Award, the Liebster Award and Blogger Recognition Award.

2) How did you first get into blogging?

I first got into blogging in my first year of College, I studied Media and we had to create a blog to showcase all of our work. This never got that far because I wasn't interested in it! I picked it back up in my second year of University, this is where An Ocean Glimmer was created, I haven't looked back and I'm pleased with the direction it has taken. It has become a massive part of my life and I have met some amazing bloggers through my journey! I actually wrote a post about my blogging journey (https://anoceanglimmer.wordpress.com/2017/09/08/why-i-started-blogging/)

3) What do you do outside of blogging?

At the moment, I am a part-time sales assistant, I try and work as much as possible while looking for a full-time job. With being on a zero hour contract it is very hard to get hours, so you have to grab the hours while you can! When I'm not working you can find me with my head in a book or even playing games, I adore video games. I have done from a very early age, at the moment I can not wait to play Assassin's Creed: Origins, I have to wait until the end of the month for my birthday.

4) What bloggers inspire you?

Through blogging, I have met a lot of bloggers some that I would even call my friends, everyone is super helpful and friendly. I would probably say Jordanne, Jemma and Jenny, now I've just released they all begin with J! These girls are lovely, very supportive and are super creative, I aspire to have my blog similar to theirs, their images are very crisp and they are super imaginative with the props for their images. I would love mine to look like theirs, their content is also amazing, very different from one another but all scream them.

5) How do you motivate yourself to blog?

Keeping yourself motivated while being a blogger, is very hard! There have been a couple of times where I've felt like giving up but then I think of my followers and what blogging actually means. When you have a continuous schedule, brands look at you highly, they know you can keep to your schedule and create your content. For me as long as I have good ideas, I can keep creating! Some days I don't have any motivation but then others I get floods of motivation, I think it depends on my mood. With planning and being organised I am able to continue to be motivated, as well as a fresh flood of ideas.

6) What is your greatest achievement in regards to blogging?

 Greatest achievement in blogging? Woow there's been soo much, I've been blogging for over two years and there's definitely a lot I've achieved! I think it would be all the awards I've been recognised for from other bloggers. It's the best feeling ever when someone has nominated you for an award, you know that all your hard work that you've done, is being recognised. It also backs up the fact that there are people out there who are reading your stuff! And it's not just my close friends and family.

Hope you'll join me next week for another interview!
