I recently read an article about blogging that figures a monthly questionnaire with the author is a good call. Something to do with engagement, blah blah blah. It was aimed at real bloggers and if I’m honest with myself, I doubt I’ve got enough material to fill more than a couple. I do like the sentiment though, so I stole this from the internet.
Welcome to my first Meet the Blogger feature.
Who is A Voluptuous Mind for?
Anyone who wants to read it, I suppose. If I were to go a little deeper maybe people like me who are still figuring out what they want to do with their lives and like films. Geeks, weirdos, normal people.
What are your struggles as a blogger?
Inspiration. Time. Blowing my own trumpet. And maybe not really having a proper focus, by which I mean I don’t really have a theme, my posts are either introspective or about B-Movies. I envy people who can commit to a theme.
How do you deal with numbers and comparing yourself with other bloggers?
I don’t have any numbers! My blog is read by a very low number of people (people whose opinions matter to me) and that’s alright. I don’t do it for popularity or to be like other bloggers. This is my safe space. I don’t know how I would respond the pressure of being a blogging sensation.
What makes you stand out as a blogger?
Honestly, I don’t think there’s anything. I think you can hear my voice in my words and hopefully I write with a tongue in cheek sense of humour but that’s about it.
What are some of your favorite tools for blogging?
I love the WordPress app and use it a lot. Mostly I slap my posts into NotePad at work and then email them to myself at home to post later. Old skool.
What’s your favorite post you have written and why?
Wow this is a good question. I have lots but here are a few:
- Watching Girls Go By
- The Final Girl
- My Own Best Friend
- Big Screen Girl Gang
- Describe Yourself in 3 Horror Characters
Which is your most read post?
I honest don’t know how to find out but this one always seems to be popular and I have no idea why.
How does your perfect day looks like?
I hate to say it but it’s a day with no plans, a whole season of new TV ahead of me and lots of nice food to eat. Like this one. I love blogging when I have the time and I have A LOT of film reviews to type up for my other blog, Thursday Night at the Movies.
My Blogging Space
It’s our sofa, which only I seem to inhabit. Cup of tea, two cushions and the TV. When I’m home I’m home and I love being cosy.
