When did you start blogging? November 2015
Why did you start blogging? I started blogging because I really needed a creative outlet. I’d just finished participating in NaNoWriMo and wanted to keep the creative momentum flowing!
What inspires you to blog? The community and life in general! The bloggers I’ve gotten to know are so creative and hard working. Without realizing it they push me and inspire me to work hard on my blog. And life is just so much fun and I love to share it.
What are your hobbies? Besides blogging I love ballet, reading, horseback riding, photography, going to amusement parks, and seeing musicals. I also love collecting hobbies I suppose!
What do you enjoy to do on your free time? I watch more YouTube and Netflix than is probably healthy.
In your opinion, what’s the best blog post you’ve written? I believe that would be my post on my experiences with anxiety. I consider it to be one of my best because of all the people who have told me they were able to take something away from that post. It makes me feel very happy that I was able to help, even the tiniest bit.
What are some of your favorite places that you’ve traveled to? I studied abroad in Barcelona and love that city to this day. I also love visiting family in Mexico, specifically in Mexico City and Morelia.
Let’s Get A Deeper Connection
How would you describe yourself? I am a complete type A. I set goals for myself and stop at nothing until I achieve them. My dreams are big but luckily so is my confidence and my determination! Oh and I’m a huge introvert.
What advice would you give your younger self? You are incredibly creative, even if you don’t believe you are.
Throughout the years, what have you learned about yourself? I really love being spontaneous. It’s something I never thought I would say but I’ve learned that I love making last minute decisions and going with whatever happens!
What has blogging taught you about yourself? Definitely that I’m more confident than I thought. When I set up my blog I did use my real first name but never thought I’d include my last name, details of my life, or anything like that. It’s evolved to be much more me!
What are your life goals and how do they differ from your blogging goals? My life goals mostly center around my career. Right now I’ve been accepted into an MBA program and I’m starting classes at the end of the month. In that aspect I would say I’m very “success”orientated. My blogging goals are much more relaxed. I just want to enjoy the ride!
Thank you so much Pamela for that incredible interview, I absolutely love your answers and I think you are extremely confident, strong and creative. I apprecaite you sharing your experience with anxiety, your ambitions and your dreams. Congratulations on being accepted into an MBA program, I want to wish you the best of luck with that. You’ve accomplished so much and I’m certain you will accomplish so much more.
Everyone: Why are you still here?! It’s the end of the post and the only thing you have left to do is go on over to Pamela’s blog and give her a massive follow, some charming comments and some likes!
