Hey, internet buddies! Happy, happy, happy Monday to you!! 👩🏻💻
I have a feeling this on gonna be a GREAT week! I have another super special collab coming up! Can you guess who it’s with? (Hint: the woman who brought me into this world)
ENOUGH CHIT CHAT!
Today I will be interviewing the LOVELY Megan from her beautiful blog, A Barefoot Gal. If you haven’t checked out Megan’s magnificent blog, I suggest you click that link to check it out. Be sure to follow! 🙋🏻
Not only will I be interviewing Megan, but Megan will ALSO be interviewing moi! How cool is dat? 💁🏻
Let’s start with Megan’s answers to my questions shall we?
1. How long have you been blogging?
Just about… Goodness! Four years! I’ve been blogging since February 2014, but A Barefoot Gal started started in May of 2014, I believe.
2. I know you’re a magician with a camera… what kind of camera do you use?
Why thank you! Most of the magic comes from the camera. I own a Nikon L830 which is a great camera, but now that I’ve been using my sister’s Nikon d300 DSLR camera I don’t like it as much. XD Sadly DSLRs aren’t exactly cheap… Anybody want to do a DSLR giveaway eligible only for people who adore donkeys and baseball and have been blogging for 4 years and a month?
3. Do you prefer to write shorter or longer blog posts?
If I have enough photos and enough to say, I’d definitely prefer to write long posts.
4. How many blogs do you have?
Well… If you count all the urls I have, that would be like 10 or something because of all the ones I use for blog design/showing people what their blog design would look like. But the ones I actually do are abarefootgal.wordpress.com, wpkidblogs.wordpress.com, and mypocketfulofposies.wordpress.com. The last two I don’t post on that much.
5. What’s your favorite Disney song?
I have a hard time deciding favorite songs, and I can’t really remember any Disney songs right now except frozen ones. 😛 Oh, I like the ones from the Lion King! The tunes are so pretty. I think my favorites are The Circle of Life and Can You Feel the Love Tonight.
6. I know you live on a farm. What’s your favorite thing about living on one?
As with the previous question, it’s often hard for me to choose just one favorite. So I’ll just list a few of my favorite things. (Now I’m going to have that song from The Sound of Music stuck in my head!)
– The beautiful scenery and rows and rows of crops. I especially like corn. It seems so summery and farmy.
– All the space to explore and play.
– The farm “education” that comes with growing up on a farm.
– Sometimes even the farm chores are fun too. 🙂
7. What inspired you to start an Etsy store?
I first got into clay because my sister Allison , and then I wanted to think of something I could keep making since I was running out of ideas. So I made a (kinda horrible) little inchworm with a top hat and then I decided to keep making them. I posted about them on my blog a few times and made a photostory about one – Inchy B – and several blogger’s suggested that I should start an Etsy shop, so about a year later I opened Inch-by-Inch Studios.
8. What’s your number one piece of advice for beginning bloggers?
Find lots of blogs you like and get to know the bloggers. Comment a lot, but don’t beg for followers!!!! Yes, that definitely deserves four exclamation points.
9. Do you use social media to promote your blog? If so, has it helped you gain followers/readers?
I guess I pin some things from my blog on Pinterest, but no, I don’t really. So no, I don’t think it’s helped gain that many followers or readers.
10. Last and most important question…
Megan, everyone wants to know…
When. Are. You. Getting. That. Donkey?! WE MUST KNOW.
I WANT TO AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! Which could be this summer or 3 years. XD
Haha. That was so fun! Don’t you just love Megan’s answers? XD
Now, here are my answers to Megan’s questions!
#1. Were you reading many blogs before you started blogging or not?
Not really. I read Clara from Clara-And-Co’s blog every once-in-awhile. 🙂
#2. What is something you’d love to post about but never have?
Ooh. That’s a tough one! Probably some sensitive subject. I just have refrained from doing it because I do not want to offend anyone.
#3. I know you like Star Wars, but do you think it’s at least a little bit overrated? XD
Haha. Good question, Megan! I have actually been asked this question many times before. XD I think in some ways it is.
#4. What is your most used emoji in posts, and do you prefer the 🙂 “emojis” or the actual 🙂 emojis?
Hmm… probably “👩🏻💻” or “❤️”. I love the actual emojis, but I think 🙂 “emojis” are my favorite. 😀
#5. Number one blogging goal?
Bring happiness through my blogging to as MANY people as I can. 🙂
#6. What’s one continent you’d like to visit most and why?
Ooh! Definitely Australia! XD
#7. What would you say your dream job is?
Either a professional blogger or professional dancer.
#8. What’s the easiest part of blogging? What’s the hardest part?
I’d say the easiest part is making internet friends, and the hardest part is keeping a consistent posting schedule.
#9. Do you normally have lots of post ideas or does it take a while to come up with one?
I think I usually have a decent amount of post ideas. 😀
#10. Favorite thing about your blog?
One of my favorite things is my site design. I’m really happy with it! XD
Do you like Megan’s blog? Do you want Megan to get that donkey?
