Hey Mom, I've Been Nominated!

Hey guys, so yes you probably remember me writing a post like this a couple of months ago. However, my bloggy friend Jess nominated me again, so I decided to do yet another post about it. Also, thank you so much Jess for nominating me. I appreciate it very much, and I am so honored. Below are my answers to her questions, in addition to some blogs I shall nominate.

How long have you been blogging and why did you start?
I've been thinking about this for a while now. I've been blogging here for almost two years (I'll be in my terrible twos in April, expect an awesome post about it.) But when I initially first started writing I guess I wanted to write awesome stuff. Writing has been something that I've always enjoyed doing, and eventually will be my meal ticket. Blogging in a way has shown me that.

What is your favorite thing to write about?
My favorite thing to write about is perhaps social issues, relationships, and music. I like to write about things that actually matter to me. My favorite post as of late is a post about finding my soulmate. (You should check it out, right here). I want my blog to be more than a bunch of random things. I want to write actual pieces in addition to blurbs about what's going on in my life.
What is your favorite blog?

What is one piece of advice you would share with a brand new blogger?
Write for you, not for someone else. It doesn't matter how many views you get, it matters if you're passionate about what you're writing about. Then the views will follow.

Do you have any blogger inspirations?  (Blogs you'd like to model yourself after or follow in their footsteps)
Blogger inspirations, no. However I do tend to model my blog after Carrie Bradshaw's Sex and the City Column.

What is your favorite memory?
Hmm, this is a hard one. It has to be when my friend Gabriel and I got a pizza one Sunday night, and ate it in a park and just wandered around and talked about life. Gabriel, if you're reading this then hi we should do that again. 

If you could go anywhere, where would you go?
Italy. I want to visit my best friend who lives there. 

What is your favorite app/website?
Apps: Instagram, Messenger, Etsy, Twitter, Netflix, and Facebook.
Website: Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, Google Drive, Netflix.

If you could be anything, what would it be?
If I could be anything, I would be a journalist...only I would have my bachelor's and masters. And you know a really high paying job. 

What's one life lesson you'd like to share?
One life lesson that I would like to share is don't let people walk all over you.

What are some of your guilty pleasures?
Nicholas Sparks books, and Etsy.
