Q&A With Me!

You asked, I answered!

  1. What made you start writing a blog?
    When I was a senior in college I was Concentrating in New Media, I started the blog for a class project without a clue of how much it would end up snowballing into this huge part of my life.
  2. What makes you? What is perfection in this imperfect world? Are you pursuing your dream? Analytical or follower? Producer or consumer?
    I am driven by passion and learning. Perfection to me is simply happiness, whatever that may be for you. I’m not sure what my dreams are at the moment, but I feel I’m on the right path. I question everything and I believe I am a producer.
  3. What is something about yourself that not many people know? What is your secret passion?
    I think most people kind of assuming I’m outgoing, but I’m extremely introverted and like being alone. I’m too passionate about my passions to keep them a secret 🙂
  4. What motivates you to get out of the bed in the morning and tackle the day?
    Mostly the thought of eating good food. 
  5. What do you do to make yourself feel better when you’re having a bad day?
    I complain A LOT, it’s annoying to others but helps me haha
  6. Favourite Book? Favourite Film? Favourite TV Show?
    Currently: The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Edward Scissorhands, and Scrubs
  7. What is one thing you could not live without?
    Cheese because omg it’s so good
  8. Who is your favorite author? Why?
    Probably Ellen Hopkins, I enjoy her writing style. 
  9. If you were stranded on some uninhabited island, what would you do? If you can ask for 5 things to have with you on there, what would they be?
    I would probably sleep a lot haha I would bring my phone, food, water, a buddy, and a book.
  10. Ever read “Me Before You?” What are your thought about dignitas? Would you do the same?
    I have! I completely respect and understand the decision and would do the same.
  11. What is your biggest fear?
    Ugh sharks and spiders.
  12. What’s your worst online dating story?
    One time I got ghosted which sucked. Another time I actually had to reject someone who thought the date went extremely well and that was hard and awkward for me – the whole date was so uncomfortable.
  13. Approximately how many other blogs do you read a day?
    I skim through a lot, but I read in depth maybe 5 a day.
  14. Which social platform did the majority of your followers come from; WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram?
    Definitely WordPress then Facebook. 
  15. How did you get your job in social media?
    I went to school for Advertising, Journalism, and New Media. I’ve loved social media my whole life so working in a communications department was a perfect fit for me. I started at a very small non profit after graduation and now I am at a much bigger one.
  16. How much do you work with Facebook Ads etc.?
    I don’t work with them but I am actually looking into it for 2017.
  17. Do you know anyone who subsequently married after meeting them on a dating website?
    I don’t! I do know about 3 couples who met via Tinder/Bumble and they have been dating for months so it is possible 🙂

Thank you for all your questions – hope you all enjoyed learning a little more about me 🙂
