Following on in my Meet The Blogger series, today I am introducing you to Sam who blogs over at Gridcore Graphics
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF?
My name is Sam; a 20-something freelance graphic designer living in Yorkshire. I’m a computer geek, gaming nerd and huge foodie.
WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I first started blogging in 2014 to share my thoughts on the latest games, tech releases and my graphic design business. It mostly consisted of reviews, wishlists and personal posts on my life as a freelance graphic designer.
HAS YOUR BLOG CHANGED SINCE YOU FIRST STARTED?
My blog has evolved over time and has turned into a fully-fledged lifestyle blog covering various aspects of my life from business advice, personal finance, food & leisure as well as home and motors. I also feature occasional gift guides from a man’s point of view.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FUNNIEST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
Having to explain why I actually ‘waste my time’ on my blog – most people think it’s like an online diary for preteens! What they don’t know is that it’s led me to make new friends, gain amazing opportunities and work from home!
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR WORST MOMENT SINCE STARTING YOUR BLOG?
Redesigning my blog layout and thinking that I had lost all my posts which I created by putting in a lot of time and effort; I just wasn’t looking in the right place, so there was a happy ending!
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO A NEW BLOGGER STARTING OUT?
Stay true to yourself & don’t follow the herd – your interests may just tap into a small niche which can skyrocket your readership!
WHAT SURPRISED YOU ABOUT BLOGGING THAT YOU DID NOT REALISE BEFORE YOU STARTED?
When you start to take it seriously, you need a lot of time and patience! I salute bloggers who juggle it with a family and full-time/part-time job.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
I’m a computer geek, gaming nerd and huge foodie. I’m also partial to movie marathons, Netflix binges and theatrical productions. However, above all, I enjoy the occasional staycation (I have a flying phobia!) and lazing around in bed all day (I wish…)
IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FIRST?
Decide which charities I would like to give half of my winnings to. I believe that giving to charity makes your wealth grow in abundance!
WHO IS YOUR BLOGGING HERO AND WHY?
This is a hard one and I can’t really pinpoint one blogger. So, I’m going to say all those bloggers who are there to help and support other bloggers, no matter how big or small the issue, because without them, I wouldn’t still be blogging 🙂
