Behind the scences blogging tag.14:40
I got this idea from Northumberland Mum I really liked this tag and thought I'd join in, too.
1. Where Do You Blog?
Usually from my kitchen table or sofa and I have a little side table to put my laptop on. I don't have a desk area at the moment.
2. Where Do You Find Inspiration For Your Blog Posts?
I usually find inspiration from writing about my children, family and of course, other bloggers inspire me, too! Like with this tag post, hehe. I find joining in with linkys that have a theme inspires me, too!
3. How Long Does It Take You To Write a Blog Post?
Depends what kind of post it is. It can take anywhere between 15 minutes and 2+ hours! If I have lots of photos to edit and/or resize, it takes me a long time to do that. I put a lot of effort into my blog posts, sometimes I think I'm a little OCD with photos though.
4. Do You Plan Your Blog Posts? How?
Sometimes. When I'm organised, I schedule posts. June has not been an organised month.
5. What Kind of Camera Do You Use? What Editing Program?
Mostly my DSLR. It's a bit of a pain to lug around with me though, so I use my iPhone. If I edit photos, I use picmonkey online.
6. Do You Use a Notebook To Track Your Ideas?
Yes. And then when I'm in a blogging slump, I'll read over my notes in my notepad and the ideas I've jotted down. It helps to get me motivated and back into blogging!
7. How Do You Take Your Pictures?
Mostly just point and then take the photo. I do sometimes set up a little background or whatever.
8. What's Your Favourite Type of Blog Post to Write?
My Weekly bits and bobs posts. I love reflecting over the good and the bad bits of my week. I also remind myself of things to look forward to in these posts!
9. Who Knows About Your Blog?
Not many people in real life. I know my sister knows... I don't think she's ever asked me what my blog is about or called though. No one else knows - I don't think they'd get it to be honest. I quite like keeping it to myself - It's my own little world :)
10. Are You an Organised or a Messy Blogger?
Sometimes I can be very organised but during June, I've been quite messy. I don't really know why... Not having much time to sit and schedule posts is mainly the reason. I am going to try and be more organised though! I might have some time this weekend to schedule some posts perhaps?
11. Biggest Blogging Pet Peeve?
No offense intended!! The email pop ups or the section along the top of the blog that says 'Subscribe to my blog by email' but it takes up half the page! It only annoys me because it makes my computer freeze! Especially the "subscribe" or "Like us on Facebook" pop ups. I do totally understand and I have nothing against bloggers who have this option on there blog - It's a good idea! I think I just need a better laptop to be honest... maybe one day!
