I was recently nominated by a fave blog of mine, Life +1 to give a glimpse into my blog writing process. I am sorry to inform you that I am not that interesting when it comes to creating my little blog world! Just imagine me in my jammies watching telly....yep boring!!
But nevertheless, here it is :)
Post wise, I'm working on catching up on all of my Paris editing as well as preparing for some upcoming Christmas posts...eeek!! German Christmas Market heaven...yay!
And overall blogwise, I am looking into purchasing a layout to keep me organized. I have always created my own designs for the blog but I am thinking it's time I need some help! Nothing fancy, just something a little more streamlined and stylized. So stay tuned for a new look come January! And possibly more organization.....we will see :)
How does your blog differ from others in it's genre?
I don't think I am too different from the many other bloggers who took jobs abroad or followed spouses who did. I originally started my blog with the intention to keep family updated on our travels and it has turned into a wonderful hobby for me! I love connecting with fellow bloggers and learning about destinations around the world. So I guess I have my own unique voice and style but my content is nothing extraordinary. Just the world through my eyes!
Why do you write/create the way you do?
I love photography.... ever since my high school days with my manual 1975 Canon and losing hours of time in our classroom's darkroom. I loved watching the image appear onto the paper and being able to manipulate it with filters and such. Nowadays, it's much more technical but I still get the same pleasure out of watching my photos transform into something amazing with a few tweaks here and there. While I have MUCH room for improvement, photos are what dominate my blog and I am happy with that!
How does your writing/creating process work?
I try and write a good bit about a destination or topic before I start adding photos. Like I said, the photos are my favorite part and if I start laying those out first, I will never write anything worthwhile! So I do my best to describe things that I saw, things I experienced, and of course things that I ate. AND then I add my photos! I usually write in the mornings with my morning Zeal. Gets my brain powers flowing.
So that's about it! Blogging has been a God-send for me! I love having a little hobby to tinker with and I absolutely love recounting our travels and almost reliving them as I watch them fill the computer screen. I have learned so much about blogging and I really enjoy connecting with and viewing other's creative spaces! So thank you to all of my blog friends for keeping my mornings busy :)
And I am nominating some fellow UK blogger friends :)
