Hi, Chantele! Let's get started. When and why did you start your blog? I started my blog in the summer of 2009. I wanted to meet more people like me in the blogging world, since I didn't know any other writers personally. I'm so glad I did. I've made so many awesome friends, critique partners, beta readers and fantastic bloggers. Although, my first few posts on my blog are SO laughable! Ha ha. :)
Argh. Mine are a total embarrassment.
What advice can you give bloggers who are just starting out? Be yourself. Don't try to be someone else. Have fun, keep your posts interesting and you'll make so many friends. The writing community is one of the nicest I've ever been involved in. If you start commenting on other blogs, they'll comment on yours. You'll make friends before you know it. :) And I wouldn't worry too much about that darn follower button. Just be focused on making friends and supporting others and you've got it made.
Such good advice!
What is your most memorable blogging experience? Hmmm... I'm not really sure. One thing that sort of made me think blogging was a bigger deal than I thought it was, was when I went to LDStorymakers last year and people knew who I was. They knew my name. People I'd never met in my life. It was crazy! And awesome. :)
I wish I could have been there. (That didn't sound stalkerish at all, did it?)
What are the top three reasons you continue to blog today?
- To keep my friendships going.
- To share my personal writing experiences. You never know what people are going through and I hope I've helped at least someone through a tough time.
- I love it. I think it's so much fun!
Random Question: If you could travel anywhere in the world to research a book, where would you go? I've always loved Greek and Roman mythology. (More Greek.) I'd LOVE to go to
and see all the statues and things of the Gods and Goddess's. That would be
Can I come? ... No? You're probably right. That would take my crush to an unhealthy level. :-)
Thanks for being here!
My answers are lame, but oh well. Thanks so much for having me!! :)
Okay blogging buddies, what are you waiting for? Go stalk Chantele!
