Why did you start blogging?
As part of the Alex Beadon Feel Good Blogging Challenge, I thought that this would be a good idea to increase traffic on my blog related to beauty product reviews and opinions. But as the day progressed, I didn’t think that I could dedicate myself to doing all of the products and reviews (especially since I’m trying to save money and am definitely not well known enough to get free things sent to me). So I decided to start this new blog that will hopefully be a documentation of my journey to creativity. I don’t consider myself creative or have many passions or even hobbies, but I’m hoping that by participating in this challenge, I can break out of my shell and get started on my journey.
Who are you?
Having said that…I’m Roxanne and I’m a young professional living in the Washington DC Metro Area. I live in the suburbs, but I don’t mind it because I don’t really like city life. I’m also going to school for a Master’s Degree in Management. My undergrad degree is in Geography and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and I currently work for a federal government department. If you asked me when I was 18 if I saw myself here…the answer would be no. I have a lot of free time, but like I said, I don’t really have any hobbies to be passionate about. There are many things I like to do, but none seem to ignite the passion and creativity in me.
Who is your blog for?
My blog is mainly for me in the fact that I’m trying to make myself better by putting myself “out there.” I’ve never been one to enjoy the spotlight but I have always enjoyed being recognized and known, so to me a blog is a way of doing this. Theoretically, anyone who has access to this could be in my audience, but realistically, it could be only a handful of people. But if along the way I attract readers who are like me and feel something about my thoughts, then that would be awesome as well.
What’s something you’ve been working on lately that you’re REALLY proud of?
Honestly, not much. I’m pretty proud though of being to work full-time and take classes to further my career. Who knows though…maybe in a few months, I’ll have a better answer to this question.
What’s the ONE MESSAGE that you hope people take away from your blog?
As this blog is brand spankin’ new, I’m not too sure. I think I want people to see through hard work and dedication, you can find something to be proud and passionate about, even if you don’t think you can.
