Last month Dishing Up Chic reached 2,000 followers. In honor of reaching that milestone, I wanted my readers to get to know me better. I asked for questions that people would like answered on my social media and I am responding to some of them below!
What made you want to get into blogging?
I go into this a little bit on my about me page but, I wanted to share my passions with people. I’ve always loved writing and helping others. In college, I would do my friends’ makeup all the time, and they still come to me for advice on products.
When I started learning to cook, I would post my meals on Facebook, and people would comment asking for the recipe. Like I said I love sharing with people so, I wanted to share on a larger platform.
What is one thing you have learned that has helped make your blog successful in gaining followers?
I try and support other bloggers. I have networked with a few different groups and it really helps to know that we help lift each other up. Other than that, I try to be myself and share what I know and hope people enjoy it.
Who takes your pictures?
Most of the time my boyfriend takes my pictures. He is a really good sport about it haha 🙂
Do you have any pets?
Right now, no. I lost my family pet in March. It was really hard. I would love to adopt another animal, but where I am living currently, doesn’t allow pets. In the meantime, I am volunteering at an animal shelter as a dog walker. It makes me feel good to contribute in the way that I can right now.
What makes you happy?
A lot of things make me happy! Trips to target, reading, country music, being outside, spending time with my family and friends the list goes on!
What do you do for a living?
I work in marketing at an in-house agency that represents nonprofits and associations. I do a lot of social media and content writing. I like that I can work with a lot of different clients.
What’s your biggest pet-peeve?
Loud chewing… the worst!
What’s your zodiac sign?
My birthday is August 1st, which makes me a Leo. I think I fit the Leo traits pretty exact.
I would love to get to know you better! Leave a comment below answering one of the questions listed in this post.
Thanks for reading!
