Who is She? That girl behind the blog and the scheduled tweets? I was nominated by Katie from katie-lauren.blog and I think these awards are a great way for you to get to know the blogger behind the screen. Here are a few things you maybe didn’t know about me:
When did you start blogging?
I started blogging originally around 3 years ago – but it was in no way a proper blog. I had no idea what I was doing and no one read my posts (I’m not surprised). But I started sophierayne on WordPress in January 2017. I then went self-hosted in September 2017. If you want to learn more about the process, check out my process to self-hosting.
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I’d heard a lot of YouTubers speaking about their blogs and thought I’d give it a go. When I wanted to start taking it more seriously, I started blogging because I wanted a different hobby to try and I was already reading blogs so thought I’d give it a go.
What is your blog about?
My blog is about a variety of topics – lifestyle, uni advice, beauty, travel – just all the things I enjoy reading about really.
What’s your favourite quotation?
I have many favourite quotations!
“You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.” – Robin Williams
“I’m too busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener.”
“Try to live every day like Elle Woods after Warner told her that she wasn’t smart enough for law school”
“The woman you’re becoming will cost you relationships, spaces and people. Choose her over everything”
“I’d rather be someone’s shot of whiskey than everyone’s cup of tea.”
So that’s quite a few but if you want to see more, have a look at my “Quotes” Pinterest Board.
What’s your favourite holiday destination?
Well that’s easy – Walt Disney World, Orlando. The magic, the parks, the weather – amazing. If you want a look at some of the places on my travel bucket list, click here.
Are you the type of person that meticulously researches a holiday trip or do you just go with the flow?
Definitely meticulously researches! I don’t like not knowing what’s going on and not knowing if where I’m going is a good place!
What means of travel do you enjoy the most?
Definitely by airplane! I don’t know what it is but I love airports! And love the feeling of knowing I’m going somewhere new! (Although coming back is never so much fun).
What’s your favourite colour and why?
Bright turquoise. That’s been my favourite colour since I was little. And I don’t know why – it just looks nice!
What are your hobbies?
Blogging, dancing, playing video games (Xbox & Sims 4)…does watching Netflix count as a hobby?
What’s your favourite type of music?
I can’t really pick a favourite because I like quite a varied range of genres. I like country (due to watching Nashville), rock (due to watching Rock of Ages), 80s, pop etc etc. There are only a few genres I don’t like.
And that’s it – do you know who she is now? Probably not but hopefully you know a bit more about the girl behind the blog!
