In today’s edition of Blogger Love, I will be featuring Rachel from Another Station, Another Mile which you can read here. I ask everyone who wants to be featured in Blogger Love to answer a few questions so that we can get to know them and their blog so I’m looking forward to you all to get to know Rachel a little better!
Tell us a bit about you and your blog.
My name is Rachel, I’m a Master’s student and expat living in the U.K. I write about travel, study abroad, university, veganism and my life and interests!
Why did you start blogging?
I studied abroad in 2015 and my mom encouraged me to start a blog so family and friends can keep up. Best choice I ever made!
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
Writing the posts and coming up with new ideas!
What’s your least favourite thing about blogging?
The expectation to take perfect, pretty pictures. I have a lot of anxiety over sharing personal photos and it causes me a lot of stress, but I’m working on it!
Tell us about your favourite blog post.
I have a post here about my top ten favourite posts as of November. But I would say my all-time favourite at the moment would have to be one I wrote since about my scuba diving holiday in Egypt over Christmas. I’m so glad I wrote it because otherwise, all the amazing dives would have blurred into one, but reading back on the posts I can remember exactly what the dive was like and can relive those memories vividly. It was also really pleasant to write between dives either soaking up the sun or being cosy in the lounge with a cup of tea.
Describe your blog in three words.
Travel, life, pretty (I’m a bit obsessed with my new theme!)
What do you do when you’re not blogging?
I’m a full-time university student, which takes priority. I also work part-time as a healthcare worker, which I talked about in this post. For fun, other than blogging, I enjoy gigs, date nights, watching Netflix and reading.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Probably some kind of pasta.
What would be your perfect day?
I love my town (Brighton) more than any other place in the world, so it would almost most certainly take place here. Probably just doing tourist-y things (pier, Royal Pavilion, parks and other sights), sitting on the beach with some cider on a warm sunny day (I could literally be there for hours), eating at one of my favorite restaurants, some shopping money to go crazy at the fun vintage shops and end the day at home watching Netflix with a pizza!
What’s your top tip for getting traffic to your blog?
I find a get a lot of traffic when I share posts on Facebook! Maybe no new followers, but a lot of reads!
