Bloggers w. Good Vibes Award

*happy tears* I just wanna thank Adi for believing in a real one. Style is life! *drops mic*

Enough of my crazy and on to my questions, LOL

1. When did you start blogging?
I started blogging in June 2012.

2. Why did you decide to start blogging?
I started blogging because I finally listened to what people were saying. I kept getting compliments and  asked about if I had a blog. The answer was always "No." Then I became unemployed and I told myself why not give it a try. Better than just going crazy *shrug*

3. What does your blog teach us?
Initially,  it was just at outlet to show what I wear. As I kept doing it, I wanted to able to inspire. One thing you can learn from my personal style is that I make it my own. I follow some trends but not all. Also, most of the time, I work with what I have. Everything doesn't have to be new. Other than that I move freely with my words and I let you take it in how you want to. I'm set to inspire you so that we can all be great.

4. Did it cost you some time to name the blog?
Omg, yes! Me and names ... I don't know what it is but it always takes a lot of thought for me. I had a name for SP and I googled it. There was already a page with the name and I simply let my head hang because I knew the process ... Then a commercial flashed the word "Proportions" on the screen and BOOM! Stylish Proportions was born. 
The day I have to name children... pray for me now everyone!! lol

5. Is your blog design autodidact or contracted?
Autodidact. I'm not super computer savvy but I know I cant pay anyone at the moment. Google have a really close relationship. Oh, and I ask Adi also! 

6. How often do you publish a post? 
I was more consistent when I first started. Now its once a week or every other week. Don't worry though, I'm getting back. Slowly... but very surely.

7. Do you have solid days where you publish or do you do it whenever you feel like doing it?
I have to build a schedule for my posts because I do have a regular 9 to 5 and then some. It's usually on my off days or at least it'll be typed on that day. I keep a notebook handy to keep track.

8. Do you share your publications on other social media sites so people can recognize you?
Of course. I think that's a given!

9. If so, what are the social media sites we can find you on?
As of right now,
.... I have been thinking about youtube. hmmmmm

1O. Do you have different sections of your blog?

11. What would you recommend to us on your blog?
Everything. I swear sometimes I feel like I'm rambling.

12. How much time from your day do you dedicate to blogging?
If I include social media, I say about 1.5 - 2 hours a day.

13. Do you think you're capable of shelving the virtual life right now?
My personal one, yes. Blogging, never! I see this as a way to connect with new people and show what interest me. Whether the connection is blogging, styling, etc. there's something there and I love displaying that. 

14. What positive things has blogging brought to you?
Confidence would definitely be number one. Just the fact of putting yourself out there for others to see and enjoy (hopefully) brings out a newer sense of confidence and comfort. Knowledge. Some new friends.  

15. And negatives?
 Writers block can kick my butt sometimes. There have been plenty of times where I just sit at my laptop questioning what the next post will be about.  The stress can get a bit heavy at times!

16. What is the first thing you look for when visiting a new blog?
Pictures....because I feel mines aren't good enough LOL. I'm so serious. I want to get a new digital camera with a tripod or something. Maybe a photographer... Not sure yet

17. Would you like the blogs that you visit daily since a long time ago become businesses?
Yes definitely. Seeing growth is always great. I love to see growth in anything (people, business, hobbies) because its significance of learning and gaining. When it comes to blogging, I think it gives the blogger the feeling of accomplishment. There's obviously an interest so why not let it expand beyond.  

18. Would you like your blog to be the way you win your life?
I've always wanted to be my own boss. I'm still learning as I type. There are so many thing that I want to do and to get across to other people. Stylish has helped with it tremendously. I would to take my baby to another level and watch it grow and be successful. However, I'm taking my time to learn how to. I think that's where some people mess up is because they jump in automatically expecting someone to compensate them only after a month. Hey, it may have happened before but not for you. make you're own path. 

19. Does it bother you to not receive any visits?
Yes. *side eye emoji* 
I do want to take the time to thank all of the supporters, the Style Bunch. It means so much to me that you are reading this and a welcome everyone with open arms. I encourage ALL, one more time ALL, feedback. I love you all so much!

Thank you, Thank you!!
