Here’s where I say a massive thank you to Red Lips and Rose for my second nomination for this award! Their blog and Twitter account were one of the first I followed when I started mine back in February, and since then they have been extremely supportive and are definitely one of my fave accounts!! So, if you’re not following them, why not?!? You should be!
What’s one thing you wish to accomplish this month, blog or otherwise?
This month I’d like to be able to be more consistent with the promotion of my blog. I’ve had really low numbers during the week which are kind of made up for at the weekend but I’m greedy so want those higher numbers all the time! Saying that though, I haven’t had as much time to spend on promoting my blog like I did at first. I really need to get in the habit of scheduling my posts!
What is one food you cannot live without?
3. What is one blog that inspires you?
I’m gonna cheat and choose two! One is Livvy @seabreezecorner and the other is Kayleigh @thekeytokayleigh. They are both going through a tough time with health complications but yet they still remain positive and are always being supportive continuously, so I’m bigging them up because I think they both deserve it!
Are you a saver or a spender?
See, I have such good intentions of saving but as soon as we have some spare money I’m spending it. In my defence though, we’ve hardly ever had spare money so it’s nice to indulge in little treats when we do. But, I’m planning on changing that this year and saving some of our extra money so I’d like to say I’m 50/50 on this one.
What social media platform is your favorite to boost your blog?
The best one so far for my blog has to be Twitter! I’ve been put off the idea of Facebook for blogging, my Instagram is kind of my weight loss account mixed with blogging (the weight loss is on hold while I’m hobbling around on crutches lol) and I am the worst at Pinterest! Literally all I’ve figured out on there is how to make my own boards and pin stuff to them. Help?!
If there was a movie about your life which celebrity would play you?
I’ve left this answer until one of the last as I had no idea! The only person I’ve ever been told I looked like (this was in high school) was Martine McCutcheon – she’s pretty so I’m taking that and running with it lol!
What is the story behind your blog’s name?
Well, Steff is obvs my name lol… and my life is literally a journey!
Do you listen more to your head or your heart?
I’m definitely one who listens to my head. I’m a very logical and organised person so there has to be reasons behind everything.
What are you most thankful for today?
Ok, this response is probably going to sound extreme and a bit attention-seeking… Being here and my girls still having their mummy around! I’ve had 5 close calls now so believe me when I say how lucky I am!
What’s your ideal way to relieve stress?
If I get stressed I usually have to try and take myself away from the situation before my anger comes out – nobody likes it when that happens lol!
Share your favourite blog post from another blogger and tell us why you like it
This extra bit was added in on Red Lips and Rose’s post so I’m doing it too! She’s going to think I’m some kind of stalker/weirdo (I promise I’m definitely not!), but Livvy posted the other day where it was 20 facts about her. Now it wasn’t the type of post where she answered questions like ‘Where do you want to go on holiday?’, they were deeper questions and by the end of it I really felt like I ‘knew’ her better! I loved it so much I’ve started a draft post for myself! I can’t guarantee my answers will be nearly as interesting as hers but still, it’s a great idea!
