Bonjour, Blogger! Hope
Name Hope Butler
Blog URL Hopes Gone
What is your blog about?
A mixture of things. Mostly about making those tough life decisions that teenagers/young adults have to make nowadays, with a bit of fashion and music thrown in.
Is this your first blog?
When did you start your current blog?
June 2013, but I only really got into it a few months ago
What made you do it?
I wanted something to occupy me and help me recover from clinical depression. My friend had a blog and seemed to really enjoy it, so I thought it would be a good idea. I was actually too scared to open my own laptop for six months!
What was your first blog post about?
Just an introduction post. It was probably really bad
What do you think is the most useful tool to you as a blogger?
Am I allowed to say Google? I google pretty much anything, from HTML codes to what different # mean on twitter!!
Do people in your real life know about your blog? If yes, has your blog helped you career wise?
Yes – not yet, I hope when the blog gets a bit more up and running it might. Plus I am still a student so I don’t actually have a career
What has been the one thing (blog post, project, etc) that you have been really proud of?
To be honest I am still finding my blogging feet. Although I am pretty proud of some of the design changes I have made, as I am a total technophobe.
Where do you see your blog in a year?
Hopefully still here, hopefully growing all the time!
What do you wish you knew when starting your blog?
Mmmm…the importance of finding your own blogging voice
What do you wish you know more about now?
HTML definitely. And the benefits of social media
How do you keep motivated to post?
With the hope that one of my post will make someone somewhere happy, or will help them in some way, that definitely keeps me motivated
Anything else you’d like to add?
I think that’s about it….other than the obvious ‘Go check out my blog’ haha! Oh and thank you Bonjour Blogger for having me.
