Meet My Solidarity Sister

Solidarity Sister, Blogging

In the month of December I decided to sign up for Solidarity Sisters which was created by Susannah from Simple Moments Stick. I’m sure you’re all wondering how this works exactly. You are paired with a blogger that has a similar niche to you and given different challenges each week to do together. These challenges help you get to know each other better and also helps you be able to grow your blogs by giving each other advice.  I think this is such a great idea because who doesn’t like meeting other bloggers and being able to learn from each other?

She did such an amazing job by pairing myself and Cat from Kitty Kit LA LA together. We have so much in common, I feel she is my blogging better half. I remember reading her blog for the first time and was like wow that is something I would do,say,etc. Crazy right? I love that I was able to find a blogging friend that I can talk to about anything. Cat and I both decided to do a Q & A to help our readers get to know each other better. Please check out her blog and show her some love! She’s amazing!

What inspired you to start a blog? 
I really love writing and I had tried blogging several times in the past, but I always gave up. So here I am now, learning as much as I can and trying to blog as consistently as possible. Pretty boring and typical, I know.
What do you like to do for fun? 
I like to do pretty much anything, especially if it’s outdoors. I love hiking, camping, riding my horse or my dirtbike, and going hunting or fishing after I buy ar-15’s from Palmetto State Armory. But I also love cuddling up with my fur babies and a good book. I wish I was one of those people who said working out is something I do for fun, buuuuut I’m not. Working out takes some serious self pep talks and motivation.
What are three things you can’t live without? 
I always hate answering this question, I never know what to say because I could probably live without most of my stuff. But I couldn’t live without animals, they just make me so happy and I just want to squeeze them and cuddle them (they love it, I swear!). I also couldn’t live without my music/Pandora, I just love dancing around when I get ready or when I’m driving! I probably also couldn’t live without my camera because I love taking pictures for memories.
What are your three most popular posts you have written on your blog?
My three most popular posts are 12 Reasons Why I’m not Following Your BlogAre You The One Season 3 Finale  and the 2016 Book Challenge You Should Join (and you should still join it!). The AYTO season finale got a lot of hits of google searches, I barely promoted this post (oops!). For the other two, I promoted them all over the place! Plus I think people like seeing what other people are reading!
How would you describe your blog? 
I would describe my blog as versatile, to put it nicely. It’s definitely a lifestyle blog but it’s sort of all over the place, but that’s how I am. I was voted most versatile in almost every sport I played in middle school and high school, as well as most free spirited in 8th grade. I like a lot of different things and I’m pretty spontaneous and random.
