Inspiring Bloggers Tag | Social Media, Blogging and Self-Love!

Before we begin, I need to thank the wonderful Pooja for nominating me. She is such a lovely and supportive member of the blogging community, and is constantly engaging with my content! Thank you for making this post possible, because I anticipate it’s going to be a fun one.

Rules

  • Thank the person who chose you.
  • Include the logo in your post.
  • Answer the questions asked to you.
  • Choose the bloggers who’ve inspired you (maximum 10)
  • Add a feature of their blog which you admire.
  • Ask them five questions.

Questions

Do you prefer blogging or social media?

Unfortunately I spend way more time on Instagram than WordPress, however it’s a habit I want to change. Blogging is a more versatile platform and I appreciate it no end! Unlike YouTube, blogging isn’t an over-saturated platform and everyone earns an audience, whether that be big or small. Blogs are so fun to work on and there’s such a range of content, especially on WordPress.

What is your favourite post that you’ve published so far?

This is such a hard question! I love my post where I discussed all things blogging. It was a lengthy one but people seemed to enjoy it. It’s called The Hustler Blogger Award, and I’ve linked it here if you want to read it (please do!)

What is one thing you are grateful for?

One thing? There are so many things to be grateful for. While I’m sat writing, I’m surrounded by my family. I’m so lucky to be with people during lockdown. Despite enjoying my own company very thoroughly, I would go mental without them.

What inspires you to continue blogging?

I’ve got to make the most out of my short time on Earth, and blogging is a perfect way to do so. I find other people and build bonds, discuss controversial topics and expand my brain. It’s like schooling outside of school, and you all know I’m a big fan of learning! 

What is one thing you love about yourself?

I don’t know. Right now I’m in an inspirational rut and finding it so hard to commit to school work. What I used to appreciate about myself was my constant commitment to productivity, now that’s non-existent. It’s okay to have bad days, but this is a long string of bad days that I can’t seem to work my way out of. I stick to a routine, I do things I love, but I keep encountering a lack of energy and a desire to just read, blog, repeat. As a perfectionist, I find it hard to commit to work if I know I can’t complete it to my best ability. That’s my hardest fence to climb, but as I previously mentioned, I just don’t have the energy! 

*sorry for the abundance of personal pronouns in that paragraph, however you don’t talk back so it’s naturally a very one-sided conversation*

My Nominees

The Cozy Potato – Victoria really deserves to dubbed an inspiring blogger because of the effort she puts into her blog. Alongside a podcast, Victoria posts consistently on her blog. Plus, her Instagram is beautiful which you need to check out!

Simple Little Things – I discovered Ana very recently and she has an awesome blog. Very new to the blogosphere, but already writes with so much experience. On Instagram we have little chats and her commitment to blogging is inspirational. 

Zainab Chats – Pooja is to thank for introducing me to Zainab. She hosts an awesome blog with so much precision and planning that I almost think she is inhuman! Love the success she is making for herself through blogging. 

Meghan’s Teen Life – Meghan is so lovely! Her kind words make my day and when she pops on her Instagram story to chat – I smile instantly. We’ve recently collaborated so I encourage you to check out that post if you have time. She was so fun to work with, always spreading positivity. 

Times Of Trials – Anushka has recently began an Instagram account, which is where I found her blog. It’s such a fun website to read because it’s a real insight into a teen’s mind – which I find endlessly relatable. 

I’ve nominated upcoming bloggers who I find genuinely inspiring. Instead of my regular nominee list, I wanted to share a group of bloggers that you need to support! They are all quite small on WordPress now, but with your support can grow. So go and offer them support. All their blogs are linked above.

My Questions

  • What are you grateful for today?
  • What is your experience with Pinterest, has it grown your blog at all?
  • As a content creator, are there any problems you encounter?
  • What songs have you been listening to on repeat?
  • What does your content schedule look like?

Unfortunately we’ve come to the end of today’s post! I hope you enjoyed reading my answers. If I haven’t nominated you, still feel free to complete the tag. Just pingback to this post so that I can see it (copy and paste the link into your post). On the other hand, if I have nominated you don’t feel pressure to complete the tag. It’s all for fun!

Do you prefer blogging or social media?

I would love to write a post about my experience of both, so please do start up a conversation in the comments! Can’t wait to hear from you all. 

Happy Friday,

  1. Ahh! Finally I was able to comment on your lovely post. I always read them and want to share my thoughts but often the comment section doesn’t come up on your site. Just wanted to say that your pictures are gorgeous as usual and I love that you’ve shared some new and upcoming bloggers. You have such quality content and are an inspiration to myself and so many others. I love our blogging community here. Everybody is so genuine and friendly!

  2. Love reading your answers Catherine. 😍 Pictures are lovely as always (which took forever to load because my connection is verrrry sloooow-2kbps) haha 😄
    As for the question about blogging or social media. I’ll answer blogging without hesitation. I’m old fashion 😁

    • Thank you Jessica! The photos will take a while to load because of their file size, even though I took them on an iPad camera. I’m glad you like them – it’s a new editing style for me. Ahh I really want to write a post about blogging vs social media no 🙂 x

  3. Congrats on the nomination! I’d have to go for blogging too, but they’re such different platforms so I like different things about each. For sharing and a sense of community, definitely blogging. For keeping up with what’s happening with those I ‘know’ or used to know ‘in real life’, then social media. xx

  4. Thank you so much for nominating me for yet another award! I love how you have taken time to describe each nominee as well. Really thoughtful. I just learned that you love studying, something which I did not know about you, can you do a post related to it? Would love to read something that would motivate me to learn more. Thank you once again for the tag😃
    Lots of love ❤

    • You’re welcome, no-one deserves it more than you! I do look forward to reading your answers. I will definitely do a post on studying! I still have a month free of school but when school resumes I’ll make some tip posts (how to prepare for the first day back at school etc). That’s such a good idea! Thank you for the inspiration 🥰

      • Yes Catherine, will be getting into the questions very soon, I just have one more exam to finish! Wow a month more! You can come up with a lot of ideas for your blog❤ I’m glad I gave you a blog idea 😉 Looking forward to reading it!

      • I didn’t know you were still in school/college! In the U.K. it’s all done for the summer, thank goodness. I have a few more weeks of restful blogging time before returning to the stressful school climate x

  5. This was so good!! I loved reading it, perfect for a Friday night read 💫 Your answers are just spectacular and I can TOTALLY agree with you on “knowing that I can’t complete a job to the best of my ability then I won’t want to do it” honestly that is literally what I struggle with the. most. Also you had me laughing at the one person dialogue “I’m sorry for all these personal pronouns but you don’t talk back a lot” 😂😂😂 i died! So good! Thank you so much for nominating me!! ☺️❤️ Much love, Xx

    • Aww Victoria! You’ve made me chuckle. I’m glad you loved it. I’m sorry we both struggle with not starting on a task we can’t complete to the best of our ability. That sucks, doesn’t it? I am working on it though and we’ll progress together! Haha, thank you for your wonderful comment. You’re more than welcome for the nomination. Can’t wait to read your answers! x

  6. Thanks for accepting the nomination and I really enjoyed reading your answers! I agree that WordPress is kind of like schooling without school because you really do end up learning a lot about not just specific topics/subjects but about life too. Also the link to the Hustler Award post doesn’t seem to be working not sure why.

  7. Congrats Catherine! You totally deserve it.
    I think what keeps me going is the people. Like hey, X finally commented! And it’s like a little reunion with a friend.
    Well, I love that you constantly support others, that you’re so optimistic, humble & generally a happy-go-lucky kind of person. And that’s only a few of the traits that I admire! Never forget them!

  9. Loved reading your answers! I prefer blogging and also reading blogs because of the long-form content. It’s easier to KNOW people behind the content and actually talk about opinions here. Social media is made for short content which has a short lifespan. It’s also much easier to relate to people on blog posts and finding new bloggers is more satisfying than finding new people on social media, in my opinion.
