We are going to talk about how we are able to maintain the goals of our blog while answering a few questions about our blogging process.
Earlier this week we were nominated by our friend Sara who blogs at Life Between the Miles ( isn't that a great title?) to answer some "behind the scene's" blogging questions about our blog and our writing process.
And here they are:
1) What are you working on?
We are currently working on trying to find a balance. We started off blogging only 3 days a week (M-W-F). We have become so enthusiastic about our blog that more and more days have crept in. Some say that you should only blog when you have something worth while to say, of course every blogger thinks they have something worth while to say, right? So when the day comes that you think that we are just blogging about nonsense, please tell us (except for Thursday's. We like to have our random "Thursday Thoughts" posts every once in a while)! Some days we just need a break though so we are trying to throw those "break" days in every once in a while.
2) How does your work differ from others of it's type/genre?
As you know, there are two of us who work on this blog opposed to just one writer. That sometimes makes it unique because our experiences are doubled. Between the both of us we are never lacking in content, that's for sure. We always feel like we have something to say. We always have someone to throw ideas off of. Each of us have our own opinions and our own unique voice. By now, I think our readers can tell who writes which posts even if we forget to sign our initials at the end.
3) Why do you write what you do?
Everything we write we try to keep in alignment with what our blog is about. Sometimes this can be a struggle because we are not JUST a running blog, We are not JUST a travel and Disney blog. We have never made overnight oats and we are not on a vegan or on a Paleo diet, so are we allowed to call ourselves "Healthy Living" bloggers? The line is so blurred? But what we do know is that we love activity of all kinds. And that's mainly what our blog is about, staying active. And the "Fairytales" part, well that just refers to our stories and everything we love, our dogs, our traveling, our running, and yes even Disney!
4) How does your process work?
We both contribute content to our blog. We write about things as they happen or when we get an idea. We generally have a few posts waiting in our queue to go live. Some do, some never do. Some we actually forget about. And then of course there are always those last minute ideas that we write the night before. If you're a blogger, you've had those right?
5) We would love to hear about ALL of your blogging styles, especially if you share your blog with another blogger. We are suppose to nominate 3 other bloggers to answer these same questions in a post. We nominated Amy from Mom's Magical Miles, April from Run the great Wide Somewhere, and Lauren from Lauren's Glass Slipper. (this was so hard because there were like 15 more bloggers that we are interested in hearing about their writing process)
Lastly, if you are not a blogger, you can take this quiz : What is your Social Media Personality?
( if you are a blogger you can take the quiz too)
If you are a blogger can you briefly answer any of the above questions? If your not a blogger, what was your Social Media Personality?
