I recently saw this “Behind the Scences Blogging Tag” on Northumberland Mam who is a great mom blogger. I thought I would try out a tag on my page and see how you all like it!
WHERE DO YOU BLOG?
I usually blog from my apartment. I have a desktop in my room and a laptop I keep in my living room. It all depends on how comfortable I want to be when blogging. Most of the time I am at my desk blogging away.
WHERE DO YOU FIND INSPIRATION FOR YOUR POST?
I find inspiration from many different places. You can read one of my recent post titled 5 Ways to Get Inspired. When it comes to blogging research is the most important factor to finding inspiration for a blog post.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO WRITE A BLOG POST?
It can take me 2-8 hours to write a blog post. From the photoshoots to writing and editing the post there are many aspects of blogging that can make the process long. Even so I love every single minute of it!
DO YOU PLAN YOUR BLOG POST? HOW?
I like to plan my blog post at the beginning of the week by writing them on my wall calendar. Sometimes plans change but I try my best to stick to my blogging layout. When I am working with a brand I have to stick with my plan. Sometimes I think of a blog post throughout the day, begin brainstorming and researching ideas, and then then I start writing. I like to deal with photos later.
WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU USE?
I either use my IPhone 6 or Canon T3i with a 50mm lens. If I am working with a photographer they use whatever camera they work with.
WHAT EDITING PROGRAMS DO YOU USE?
To edit my photos I use Photoshop and the AfterLight App. When it comes to proofreading my blog post I ask my friends or my parents to read it for any grammar mistakes.
DO YOU USE A NOTEBOOK TO TRACK YOUR IDEAS?
Yes I do! Writing anything down on paper to me is therapeutic. I feel that I remember more completely if I write it down.
DO YOU TAKE YOUR PICS?
Any photos I take close up of my face I take with my camera by turning the 10 second timer on. When I take photos of items I take them myself. All other photos I have friends or a professional take the photos to get full body shots.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF BLOG POST TO WRITE?
I love to write about topics that are relatable. Whether it’s fashion or giving advice, if I feel it could potentially help a lot of people it makes me happy. This makes it easier to write and complete a great post.
WHO KNOWS ABOUT YOUR BLOG?
I tell everyone I meet about my blog . I also advertise my blog on all my social media outlets. My dream would be for the world to know and to find candicenikeia.com as a place to learn, chat, and be inspired.
ARE YOU AN ORGANIZED OR MESSY BLOGGER?
I would consider myself to be an organized blogger. When I give myself time it really helps me to stay organized and stressed free.
BIGGEST BLOGGING PET PEEVE?
Any form of competing within the blogging community is my biggest blogging pet peeve. I believe so many people can make it as a blogger. I believe in abundance for all; there’s enough for everyone. There is no reason to feel intimidated or even better than another blogger. I am so thankful for the support communities I have found on social media! Bloggers should always support other bloggers.
Thanks for reading through this fun tag! Did you enjoy it? Should I do more tags? Let me know your thoughts! Feel free to tag me in another one soon! I now want to tag Style Lullaby and Katherine Valdivieso.
