The Tell Me More Tag

The Tell Me More Tag

I’ve loved Lyd’s blog for a while now, and she recently created ‘The Tell Me More Tag‘ and I decided that I wanted to participate. Lyd’s blog is always full of wonderfully curated posts, so if you haven’t already, you should definitely check it out.

The ‘Tell Me More Tag’ has been created by Lyd with the intention of getting to know other bloggers and their reason for blogging, including their inspirations, goals and favourite things about blogging. So without further ado, here we go…

What’s the story behind your blog name?

The main reason for the name of my blog is because I wanted to create an online presence to share my experiences of what it’s like to be a girl. My intention of talking all things beauty, travel and lifestyle from the perspective of a woman was to create a little community of people who can also share their experiences with me. It also stems from one of my favourite movie quotes ever from Notting Hill: “I’m just a girl standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her”.

What’s your real reason for blogging?

I’ve always loved writing, even from a very young age and it’s always been my ultimate dream to write my own book. I think the main reason for writing my blog is to document my life and the things that I’ve done so that I can look back in many years and remember all the stuff I’ve done.

Best thing about blogging?

The best thing about blogging is definitely the friendships that I’ve made online. It’s strange, but I feel as though the people I’ve met online could be friends forever. I just have so much in common with so many people and it’s so cool to be a part of such an awesome community.

Worst thing about blogging?

I think the worst thing might be the subconscious desire to compare yourself to everyone else. Whilst I truly think that it’s the most amazing community, I think it can sometimes be too easy to compare yourself to others and wonder whether you’re keeping up.

Proudest moment so far?

I’m honestly not sure what my proudest moment so far is, but I think that just having a sense of belonging in the blogging world has made me incredibly proud. When I got my first 1000 views on my blog, that was definitely an achievement that I was proud of; I can’t believe that so many people had read what I had to say.

What are your ultimate blogging goals? Don’t be shy!

I’d love to be able to make an impact on the world. If my writing could affect even just one person, then that would be absolutely amazing.

If you released a book, what genre would it be?

It would definitely be a rom-com. Or maybe even a kind of self-help book; I think it’d be pretty cool to turn my experiences into some kind of guide for other girls.

If you released products, what would they be? Homeware, beauty, or something unexpected?

I’d love to release a series of books, (kind of like a J.K Rowling…) but I think it’d be pretty cool to have my own homeware range too. Things like candles, bedding and photo albums would all be at the top of my list.

What would you name the products and why?

Ooh this is a tough one! I think I’d name them after my favourite movies and books, and the range would be Tiffany Blue and silver I think.

What has blogging taught you?

That I’m better at things than I originally thought. My confidence has also improved so much in the short time that I’ve been blogging, I think that talking to a lot of new people has really helped me.

Sum up your blog in three words!

Adventure- I’d like to think that I’m making a good effort of documenting all of my life’s adventures, including new experiences and holidays.

Happiness- I want my blog to be a place of happiness, for both myself and for other people.

Memories- I’d love to look back at my blog in many years time and see all of the amazing memories that I’ve made and documented on my blog.

If you take part in the ‘Tell Me More Tag’, please let me know in the comments or on Twitter @imjustagirl_16.

  1. I’m really enjoying this tag! Love all of your answers. I really love the story behind your blog name- that’s one of my favourite movie quotes as well, so romantic. And I agree with you about comparing your blog to others. It’s such an easy rut to get into, and I actually let it put me off my blog for quite a while last year, not something I want to happen again

  2. Such a great post, I might have to do this tag too as I really liked it. I absolutely loved your answer to blogging goals, making an impact on at least just one person… this is my ultimate goal too. Beautiful response!
