Welcome to the first official post of Blogger Love, my brand new showcase for bloggers! Last week I explained a little about Blogger Love which you can read here. Today, I’ll be featuring Aliece who has a self-titled blog which you can read here.
Now, I asked everyone who wanted to be featured in Blogger Love to answer a few questions that I put together so, here are Aliece’s responses:
Tell us a bit about you and your blog.
I’m 19 years old and am a freshman at Florida Atlantic University, studying Communications. I originally started out as a beauty blog, but I realized that I wasn’t happy with just posting beauty-related content so I scrapped that blog and made a completely new one where I focus more on my college experiences and other lifestyle content. I still will occasionally blog about beauty because I’m still obsessed with it.
Why did you start blogging?
I’ve always wanted to write, but I struggled with finding an outlet for others to see. I tried various platforms, but with social media, everything needs to be so concise and not personal. I like to tell stories without being limited to a word count so that’s why I love blogging.
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
My favourite thing about blogging is getting to work with some amazing local and indie brands. I’ve gotten to familiarize myself with so many amazing people and products just through writing reviews. I also really enjoy networking with other bloggers as I’ve found many people that share the same interests as I do.
What’s your least favourite thing about blogging?
My least favourite thing about blogging would probably have to be taking “near perfect” photos to accompany my posts. I’m getting better at it, but I still don’t have a nice quality camera, so I’ve just been using my phone for the time being.
Tell us about your favourite blog post.
My favourite blog post to make was probably “Eat Like a Food Blogger, Save $$ Like a College Student”. I really enjoy taking pictures and writing about food, plus it gave me an excuse to try out all of the unique restaurants in my college town.
Describe your blog in three words.
Personal, Fun, Hodgepodge
What do you do when you’re not blogging?
If I’m not blogging, I’m either at school or binge-watching something on the internet. I’m always on the internet doing something, though.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Gourmet Ramen! Although the sodium content is quite dangerous, Ramen noodles (ones you make at a ramen house and not packs of top ramen) are extremely versatile and can be paired with absolutely anything!
What would be your perfect day?
As long as I’m travelling somewhere and trying new foods, that would be my perfect day.
What’s your top tip for getting traffic to your blog?
My top tip for getting traffic? Networking. My blog didn’t start to get traffic until I started meeting other bloggers through Instagram and Facebook, Really. I hope that I’ll be able to meet a few in person one day.
