Hi everyone! I am taking my spring break to work ahead on blog posts. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted something other than a Weekly Wrap-Up, but I am back! I was lucky enough to team up with some other bloggers to create this Boss Blogger Tag. We all came up with questions and at the bottom of the post I will have their blogs linked so you can check them out! I hope that this will be a fun way to learn a little more about me!
What made you want to start a blog?
I had been toying with the idea for awhile, but didn’t think what I had to say was important enough. But then throughout my senior year I started coming up with ideas and by this past fall I saw how much potential comes with having a blog. I loved the idea of Life with a Pop potentially leading to income. But more importantly, I realized that I really enjoy writing and wanted to do something for myself that I really enjoy.
What is your favorite post you’ve created?
I have only had Life with a Pop for about three months so I don’t have too many posts under my belt. But my favorites are my Weekly Wrap-Ups. I think because they are interactive, consistent, and allow for a positive reflection. But I am really excited to write more posts about topics I love!
Where in the world are you from?
I am from Frederick, Maryland! Frederick is about 40 minutes from Baltimore and Washington, D.C. – I feel very lucky to live in such a great location!
What country is at the top of your bucket list?
It is a tie between Australia and Greece! Australia has been my dream destination for as long as I can remember. It is so beautiful and the people seem so nice and fun! Greece has been a dream for awhile now, especially after watching Mamma Mia many years ago. I am lucky enough to say I will be in Greece next year!
What is your favorite way to relax at the end of the day?
At the end of a busy day I take time to slowly go through my nighttime skincare routine. It is such a relaxing way to take care of myself and unwind. I also always listen to music at night to relax, typically I listen to John Mayer.
How did you come up with your blog name?
I actually have a whole post about this! To give you a little preview, it was inspired by my aunt who always looked to add a pop of color in her life. I loved this concept and decided I want to do that, but also add pops of positivity and fun into peoples’ lives.
What is your biggest goal as a blogger?
Right now, the goal is to get name recognition and eventually the opportunity to work with brands that I love or discover in the future. It would be great if this led to a career.
What is the one thing you hope people will get from visiting your site?
I hope that people learn something from my writing, whether it is big or small. It could be learning ways to reflect, tips and tricks about beauty products, etc. But ultimately, I hope that people will feel happier and leave with a more positive outlook on their day.
What advice would you give beginner bloggers?
This is tricky to answer because I am still a beginner blogger! But I would say do research before you start, this was very helpful and reassuring to me when getting Life with a Pop set up. I would also say be patient with results and continue to write about what you enjoy. There is nobody telling you what to write so keep riding that freedom and enjoy it!
What are some of your hobbies?
I would say my top three hobbies are makeup, music, and writing. I never considered writing to be a hobby, but when I think back I have been writing since first grade when I would write kid stories. Being in college has made me realize how much I really love it. Although I do not play any instruments, listening and discovering new music is one of my favorite things to do. I will spend hours some days looking for new music and supporting lesser known artists. Makeup is my favorite hobby. It is such a unique and growing creative outlet that I think is so fun! You can look on my Instagram page to see looks I’ve created!
Where is your #1 favorite place to eat?
Although I do enjoy eating out, take out is my favorite! My absolute favorite that I will always be in the mood for is Chinese takeout!
What is your favorite part of being an influencer?
Honestly, I would not consider myself to be an influencer yet, I’m still so new! But I do love getting to share my thoughts, give people a look into my life, and hopefully help people in some aspect!
What is the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
I don’t know if this necessarily counts as adventurous, but one of my favorite recent adventures was taking a trip to New York City with two of my friends for New Year’s Eve. We stayed in the Upper East Side and it was so fun to just have the time to explore. New Year’s Eve was spent in Times Square so that we could see the ball drop. We stood in Times Square for 14 hours, 10 of which were in the rain, but we had a great spot to see the ball drop. I will have an entire post about it towards the end of the year, but I can honestly say it was one of the most surreal and fun experiences.
