Interview with a blogger...Sophia♡

Wednesday, 8 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 Sophia.

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

When I first started my blog I felt like I was interested in so many things and I wanted to blog about it all. I knew I didn't want to just blog about beauty because I had so much more to offer like my passion for baking. I started my blog https://sophiaaaxo.com and I blog about beauty, baking, lifestyle and travel and I love the variety. I am so happy that I don't just blog about one thing because not only does it open my blog to alot more readers but because I can blog amount more than one of my passions. I think because I blog about four different topics, I get people that read my blog that might just be interested in one of the topics such as lifestyle. It has definitely opened up my audience as I will have other beauty bloggers, other lifestyle bloggers, other travel bloggers and other baking bloggers that want to read my content and not just other beauty bloggers...if you know what I mean.


2. How did you first get into blogging?

I really really wanted to start my blog in 2015 and I originally started up a blog with Blogger but I didn't get on well with it. I thought it was too hard and it was confusing, so I never actually put up a post. Then at the start of this year I was like I am at the point now where this is something I really want to do, I love writing and talking (sometimes too much) so I just went for it. I set up another blog with Wordpress and I love it so much as I find it so easy to use and they have really great support. 

3. What do you do outside of blogging?

I am one of these people that loves doing new things, so I never really have any free time. I a currently at University studying Drama and Theatre and I have one more year left until I graduate!! ahh so exciting! so I am there all week and then I also work on the weekends at Wilkinsons. I try and go to the gym as much as possible because working out and being healthy is really important to me. Baking is also one of my hobbies and I try and do this as much as I can even though it does require a lot of time. I love reading aswell, I can open a book and be reading for hours. Netflix and Youtube also take up some of my time when I have nothing to do. I could watch Youtube for hours ( not even exaggerating, there have been times when I go to bed at like 3 in the morning because I am addicted haha ) I love watching a new Netflix series too. I tend to try and keep myself busy just because I hate being bored haha. 

4. What bloggers inspire you?

I tend to watch more Youtubers then read Blogs although there are a couple of bloggers that I love. Obviously I love Zoella ( https://www.zoella.co.uk ), I love her blog posts especially her baking ones. I love Tanya Burr ( https://www.tanyaburr.co.uk ), Inthefrow ( https://www.inthefrow.com ) and Fleur De Force ( https://www.fleurdeforce.com ) too! they are all great. 


5. How do you motivate yourself to blog?

For me, blogging isn't a hobby it is like just as important as my uni work or my actual work. I see it as a career, and because I am so motivated to succeed in it, I am normally quite motivated to want to blog. I find it easier to be motivated to blog when I think that blogging is something I need to do rather then oh I should probably blog or edit a post. 

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

Definitely getting to 500 followers in just 9 months! this is so crazy to me and I can't thank everyone enough. I have had soooo much support and I feel like I have come so far in such a short amount of time. It makes me feel so happy and overwhelmed that 500 + people followed my blog because they want to read what I have to say. They care about my opinions and my views. I have also worked with some amazing brands and made some amazing friends and I will forever be grateful.
