Welcome back to Post Comment Love, where Steph and I welcome all bloggers, all topics, to link up and share their best post of the week.
This week I'm slowly getting back to normal, the carpets are mainly down (apart from the stairs) and most of the furniture is back where it's meant to be. I love our new carpet, because it's a lighter colour it brings so much more light into the house. The boys have been banned from wearing shoes on it and I'm conscious that I'll have to mop the kitchen floor often if I want to keep the carpet clean.
My office is awesome. I've got real, actual shelves! They're filled already, not with any sense of order so that's the next job. I have a few pieces of furniture that still need to be moved out of my office but once that's all done it'll be finished. I love working in a room with white walls, it's not so dingy on the dreary days, and the fact that I have both a Pixar picture and a Friends picture on the wall makes me smile. My two loves right there, Disney and Friends.
I am inspired every time I go into my room and I'm happy. The Hubby and I had a tough couple of weeks making sure everything got done but it was all worth it.
I spoke a few weeks ago about something new, that I was going to turn my hand to crafts again. The type of crafts I'm trying is card making and so far it's going okay. I've bought a few items I needed and have had plenty of time practising. It hasn't all gone well, which I expected, but all in all I'm enjoying it. Here's a sneak peak of what I've been doing...
As for the blogging side of things, I'm still playing catch up (always!) but as things slow down at home I'll be able to catch up a little more.
How has your week been?
Blogger Showcase Guilianna from Guilianna Marie
Who are you?
I am Guilianna McGinniss, a blogger whose work often concerns the beauty and fashion industries, as well as fitness and life.
I am currently a senior in high school who hopes to work in the medical and/or journalism field. As of now my goal is to major in psychology/psychiatry and minor in journalism.
When I’m not blogging or studying, I enjoy spending my time outdoors. I enjoy hiking and taking walks on the beach- like any other romantic. I also like baking chocolate chip cookies and cuddling with my dog, Macy.
How did you discover blogging?
In all honesty, I was messing around with my Google account and came across Blogger. I decided to play around with it. When I was in junior high, I posted daily journal entries. Once I got to high school, my blog became a lot more serious.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I wanted to express myself. I wanted to be heard.
What do you find most challenging?
When it comes to blogging, the most challenging aspect is gaining an audience. It’s hard to get readers coming back for more sometimes.
What is your favourite topic to write about?
I wouldn’t have said this answer 6 months ago, but my favourite topic to write about is anything personal. This past January I wrote a post about the first boy who broke my heart. It’s crazy how I used to fear people reading those types of posts from me. Now, I just want to let other girls know that I feel what they feel. And more importantly: they’re not alone.
Are you blogging for fun or do you have goals?
My blog definitely started out as a little hobby. Then, after two years I decided I wanted to pursue blogging as a career in some way shape or form. As of now, I treat it like a side job. I plan on doing that in the future too.
What is your favourite thing about blogging?
There are so many things I love about blogging. I love making friends and connecting with brands… But I also love having the ability to inspire someone. When someone comments, “This post was really inspiring,” I get an incredible feeling. It’s hard to explain.
Have you ever attended a blogging conference?
I have yet to attend a blogging conference. I think it would be really cool to do so. Unfortunately, most bloggers I talk to are from Europe. Not many are from here in the States.
What are your three best posts?
Blogging For The Better-
How To Take Killer Notes-
My Blogging Essentials-
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Motivated. Passionate. Loving.
Are you a tea and biscuits or coffee and cake person?
Definitely tea and biscuits! Enough said.
What’s your idea of a perfect night out?
I love going out to eat. I would start off my night by going to some Italian restaurant and then over to the cinema for a romantic comedy.
And the perfect night in?
I’m definitely the type of girl who likes to lay low on Friday nights. My idea of a perfect night in is starting off with pizza. Reading magazines with a face mask on. Hot bubble bath. Candles. Are you with me?
What would you best friend/OH/mum or kids say is your best quality?
My best friend would probably say my best quality is being able to communicate. I am very easy to talk to.
