Carrying on with my Meet The Blogger Series, today I am introducing Kelly who blogs over at Adventures Of A Riot Grrrl.
Tell Us About Yourself?
Hi I am Kelly and I blog as Kitty over at www.adventuresofariotgrrrl.com! I am welsh Brummy living in Derbyshire just enjoying the adventure that is life.
How Or Why Did You Start Blogging?
I always loved writing fanzines when I was younger as I have always been hugely into music and activism. I loved the whole riot grrrl DIY scene. Which encouraged girls and anyone who felt they were unheard to have a voice. As a plus size woman who loved music and fashion. I felt like I had a lot to talk about and it just kind of started from there.
Has Your Blog Changed Since You First Started Blogging?
Oh for sure! I don’t post as often about fashion anymore simply because I am not buying as much. And I guess I have grown a lot. I definitely want to go back to my roots a bit and give my blog a bit of a shake up again. The fun thing about blogging is as you change it can change too and that is okay.
What Has Been Your Funniest Moment Since Starting Your Blog?
I think every day when I open my inbox and the variety of crazy posts you get offered. From anal bleaching to random gifts these always keep you amused that is for sure.
What Has Been Your Worst Moment Since Starting Your Blog?
I think getting lost in comparing your blog to others and feeling a little isolated when you haven’t found a click because sometimes it can be like being back in school again. This is when you really need to take a step back and shake yourself up a bit. There is no point comparing yourself to others because you are the only one that is the uniqueness that is you! If you feel like you don’t fit into a group don’t worry about it and do your own thing there are lots of lovely supportive and empowering bloggers out there who would love to chat find them instead!
What Advice Would You Give A New Blogger Starting Out?
It won’t happen over night and will take time! Get your domain straight away so you are building your domain authority from the beginning. Put the work in but most of all don’t forget to have fun along the way too! Don’t get caught up in the numbers you can build your readers and following in time.
What Surprised You About Blogging That You Did Not Realise Before You Started Blogging?
I guess how much work really goes into it like with any great thing there is so much behind the scenes things that nobody really tells you at first. I thought I could just sit at a computer and shoot my words out there and in some ways you can but it also helps to create great pictures, share fun places and learn how to manage your own site. There are so many different things bloggers learn as part of a blog and these are great tools that can be used in the work place too.
What Do You Like To Do In Your Spare Time?
I adore reading and art so devouring books as often as possible and filling my mind with crazy characters and far away places is amazing. I like adventuring to new places and eating as many different kinds of food as possible. I am all about new experiences and exploring.
If You Won The Lottery What Would You Do First?
My boring adult self is all pay off my bills and buy a house and make sure my parents are financially stable and supported. Then if there was any left go on some crazy adventures and finally get married haha.
Who Is Your Blogging Hero And Why?
Oh wow there are so many amazing bloggers out there but I love Kobi from www.horrorkitschbitch.com shes such a beautiful and creative human who radiates love and warmth. She is super kind and sweet too and has just launched an amazing fashion line for plus babes.
