Lets all say hey to Soph today! *Hello friends! I’m Soph from soph.creates* Soph is an everything blogger from soph.creates. She likes lounging around on the beach, puppies, and video games. Sophs favourite social media platform (generally) is Instagram. But is that what she loves to use for her blog? Who knows….
I started blogging back in my childhood bedroom when I decided that it was time I took my diary writing public. I always had a fascination with documenting my life and being able to go back in time and read about all the things I was doing that day and I also loved to share. Blogging was really the only next logical step.
Do you having a blogging niche? Or do you just write about whatever you enjoy?
I definitely don’t have a blogging niche and I find it super hard to stick to one. Some days I’m a travel blogger, other days I’m a food blogger, and other days beauty and fashion. I tend to write about what I enjoy and these days it’s more about using my blog as an outlet to feel like I’m not just “working for the man” but also engaging in my hobbies.
Who would you say are your blogging inspirations?
I don’t really have blogging inspirations because my blog is pretty personal to me. It’s not really about getting to where anyone else has gotten, or writing in the same style as someone else. For me, my blog is for me and if people enjoy reading it then awesome.
How long have you been blogging?
Counting all the blogs I had as a kid? Probably about 8 years now! On my current blog, soph.creates it’s been about 3 and a half years.
What is your favourite social media platform for sharing your blog?
Twitter! There’s something about Twitter that I’m finally starting to understand and I find the community on there to be great. All the bloggers I interact with are so genuine and lovely. They’re also super encouraging when it comes to writing and it pushes me to keep it up.
Set yourself some goals and work towards them. Those don’t have to be follower counts or pageviews. If anything they should be things that you want to gain for yourself rather than anyone else. Blogging for me is a way to become more comfortable with talking openly and sharing things I find important and my goals these days are things like “write two blog posts a week” or “spend an hour taking photos and editing them” – because those are the things that make me feel the most accomplished rather than having 10k followers (even though that would be nice!)
I love the tips! Setting goals like that is far better than goals to do with numbers & stats! I cannot believe how long you have been blogging, that is amazing 😍
