I was nominated for the Liebster Award by an amazing blogger and a friend.The Liebster Award 2017 is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. I would love to thank Unapologetically Kelly for nominating me for this incredible award. She has opened up my journey by allowing to be a part of her amazing community, where I have met so many bloggers that are supportive and uplifting. For this award, I was given a few questions to answer, which I appreciate because they make me think about the long journey that I had traveled to get here. Enjoy!
Why did you start your blog?
I first started Timeless Brunette (back then called Within These Closet Walls) as a hobby, and never in the world would I have thought that it would become to mean so much more. I wanted a place where I could express myself as well as to help young people with life. Timeless Brunette started out just as a fashion blog, but as I started receiving emails from young women asking for advice, and I knew I could really make an impact.
What is your favorite way to practice Self-Care?
Alone time. It is so important for me to have my alone time. I use this time to catch up on work and reflect on everything that has or is happening in the world and in my personal in life.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I honestly feel like this is a tough question for as I am barely a college freshman. I see myself going into the medical field in college. I have always had a passion for anything that involves science. It screams my name. Becoming a surgeon is what I am aiming for, nothing less. I also hope to grow my blog into something people can relate. I want to be there to guide and help them.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
I would definitely go to Spain. This country is full of rich culture, and its historic background is amazing. I want to learn more about my roots. Plus, I would have to stress out much about communicating with people seeing that I am fluent in Spanish. Learning has always been a big part of my life. I am a curious child I want to learn how things work, how things were made, and how people are the way they are.
How has your blog changed you?
My blog has helped me grow as a person. I have matured so much since I first started. Back then I was just a child without a purpose. Now, I have so many goals. It has also made me become an organized person. I currently have 3 planners and Google Calender and trust me I use them all. There is not day that goes by that I don’t look at them.
What has been most enjoyable for you about the blogging community?
I have made so many blogger friends! They are genuinely the best people. It’s so cool because they are helpful and don’t judge you at all. They may give you constructive criticism, but that is always welcomed. Who would have thought that I would have friends from the UK, Africa, and other places around the globe! I am so blessed to be a part of this magical world!
When you’re not writing, in what ways are you improving your blog?
I am always searching for new inspiration that helps me bring new content to my blog. I understand that reading the something over and over can become boring, so I try to bring in topics that will connect with at least one person around the world.
If you could share any piece of information with a new blogger, what would it be?
Stay authentic. I know you will look at other successful bloggers and wish you had what they have, but nothing is better than being yourself. You will earn loyal and supportive subscriber/followers by just being you.
If all of the stars aligned and you could make 1 wish for your blog, what would it be?
To help young women become confident.
