💜 H E L L O B L O G G I N G B E A N S! 💜

So, in today’s post, I’m going to be sharing how I write my posts from scratch (Images, text, etc.) 😍 So without further ado, let’s dive into this post!

💫 💫 💫

I use ‘Canva’ for my images and I’ve got some helpful tips for you! Personally, I use a mix of templates and images from scratch. 😂 I love canva and really recommend it. 💕

  • When your in a rush and don’t have time to make a featured image from scratch, use a canva template and customise it. 😇
  • Use some helpful ‘Elements’. Evin has a great post on ‘Living the Blogging Life’ Which you can check out here.

💜 PLANNING POSTS 💜

The very first thing I do In the whole ‘Blogging process’ is planning. Planning is really important and comes in many different aspects. For example, one brief outline of a post written down on a piece of paper or a notes app can help you when writing. I use a notebook to get down ideas when I think of them and then expand. Here are some tips: 💕

-Write down key info for the post ✏️

-Think of title ideas ✨

Generally, planning helps me so, so much when writing a blog post.

💜 What Do I Do While Writing Posts To Stay Focused? 💜

I find that sitting down and writing a post all in one chunk of time is really hard. 😂 So many distractions, my phone is just sitting there… 🙄. To begin I put on some tunes 🎶 and then look over my outline and I find words (did I say that right 😂.)

Know your Buddy Tag ft. Merlyn | Flora’s Week Show ✨

Photo by Soubhagya Maharana on Pexels.com

Welcome back to flora’s week show! How are you all? Today’s post I’m joined by Merlyn @Curly Thoughts by Merlyn for a great tag I saw on Evin’s blog @A Curly Sue’s Ramblings and I loved the idea. 💕 In this part of the post, i’m going to share our questions and my answers are on her blog.

Without further ado, let’s get started! 😄

Rules:

  • Tag the original creators of this tag – Tallblondetales and Proxywords – and tag the original posts from each of their blogs. If you do, you’ll be eligible for the roundup post and grand ‘Know Your Buddy’ tag winner! If not, you can still take part in the tag you just won’t be a contender for the overall winner.
  • Thank the bloggers who nominated you (and your buddy), share the badge and rules in your post.
  • Pick a blogger with whom you’d like to do this tag with, answer the questions together, and share each other’s answers on both the blogs.
  • Nominate 10 new Bloggers and keep spreading the love.
  • Notify the bloggers (tell them you nominated them) by commenting on one of their posts.

What is your favorite blog post of mine and why?

Okay so I don’t have a specific answer since I enjoy them all, but I actually really enjoy your short poems. It’s really beautiful and nice to hear.But maybe If I had to choose I would say I like ‘ The Summer-y Poem’one. I just seriously am amazed on how you get inspired by a flower and write a poem. ( like damn girl that’s really good 😮 )

Me- Aww! Thank you so much 💕

What would you like to be known for – your name or your Blog name?

Probably my name cause … uh it’s my name and my name is unique and cool and awesome and no one can spell it properly and even write my name correctly at times, so ya I would like to be called my name 😄. ( I remember when a teacher couldn’t tell my name properly and asked my if it is a Japanese name, uhmm I mean 😶 💀)

What is the weirdest comment you’ve ever gotten about your blog?

Uhh well I got a comment asking why people keep using the letter ‘ i ‘, I was kinda blank like what type of question is this? 🤔

Me– 🤣 🤣

Do you think cereal is soup? Why or why not?

NOOOOO OH HELL NOO

, FIRST OF I HATE SOUP 😱 ( yea it just tastes weird like water with some masala’s in it ,idk) SO NO IT’S NOT A SOUP!!

If you had a controller that has the power to rewind or fast-forward, which one would you press on WordPress?

Uhm maybe the fast – forward, idk cause it just sounds cool 😀

If you two were to be buddy characters in a movie, which characters would you be and why?

Uhmm what about Finding Nemo, I feel Flora would be Nemo who is so cute and brave and I feel like I would be those seagulls ( lmao I couldn’t think of anything else !)

HiHelloGIF.gif

Me- You’re so sweet! 💞

What is the most boring part of posting blog posts for you, or what part of posting a blog are you laziest about doing?

Probably darkening some sentence and colouring them, cause I like putting colours I find attractive and at times WordPress acts funny by not putting the colour I want and I have to like re- do it again ( sorry but not fun )

If you could transform into any animal, what would it be and why?

majestic wolf ✨ I don’t know it just sounds pretty 

If your blog had a superpower/magical element, what would it be?

Oooh uhmm maybe what if you could feel the sentences like I say that I went to the ice- cream shop and had the best chocolate ice – cream! 😋

 ( But also I feel like most of my sentences are kinda gives me depressing killer vibes, I mean I always write bleach in my posts, so maybe not a good idea )

If you were given the power to exchange blogs for a day, which thing will change or adapt first?

I bet it would be the sense of humour in the post cause I know for a fact that Flora has a sense of humour while I doubt if I even have ( I mean it is confirmed by my friends that I don’t have one, thanks guys you the best! 😀

I nominate you all!

Thank you so much for reading! Have a lovely day,

-flora ✨

ps- Stay tuned for Sunday because I’ve got a special post coming up! ✨

*Nervous laughing* maybe once .. who am I kidding , most of the time that’s the case.

 never have I ever tried a DIY and it didn’t turn out the way you wanted

yeah, a LOT of times! too many times 

never have I ever binged netflix all day

Never have I ever read a whole book in one sitting

 No.. oh wait i think i have , but that was a children’s book , what? I didn’t have anything to do 😶

 Never have I ever been caught talking to myself

thankfully not yet , or maybe i have been by mom , but she might have just remembered that i am weird and let it go. 😇

Never have I ever traveled by plane 

yeah, 3-4 times , but it was not international travel or anything...

❤️Interviewing Zainab❤️| Flora’s Week Show ⭐️

Hello friends! ❤ How’s everyone doing on this Tuesday morning? Today, I’m joined by the lovely Zainab from @Zainab Chats and we’re doing an interview collab. Her questions and my answers will be on her blog so make sure to check that out here. I love Zainab’s blog and find it so inspiring. Without further ado let’s get started. 💭

Key:

Bold writing– me

italic writing font- Zainab

When did you start blogging? And why 💻

So my first ever blog was created in December of 2019 and it was called Z.H Blogs. At the time, I didn’t really know if blogging was the right thing for me, so I created it just as a beginner blog. However, I really fell in love with blogging (especially the community!) so I created Zainab Chats during lockdown as my main blog and it’s been going really well and I’ve been blogging on it since April 2020 and it’s honestly been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

Me- That’s really nice. I found my love for writing through my blog too

Did you ever hit a blogging block? (you couldn’t face writing a blog post)

I’ve never hit a major block but there’s definitely been some days where I’ve gone to write a post and I just think ‘what can I do?’ Usually to counter it I either look through other blogs for inspiration or Pinterest and they’re both big help!

Me- That’s a really good idea! 💡

What motivates you to write a blog post? ✏️

My main source of motivation is my followers! The whole blogging and content creating community is incredible and I just feel so blessed to be creating content for and alongside so many other people, so definitely the community!

Me- That’s a big part of blogging for me too. Each of my followers are so sweet, kind and caring and I couldn’t thank you all enough.

How do you plan a blog post? 💭

Well, the thing about blogging is that inspiration can strike at any time – so I don’t necessarily plan my posts. What I do though is have a note on my phone which has all my posts written out ready for Sunday (my post scheduling day!)

Me- I’m kind of the same. When creativity strikes I make a note of the idea an then build on it for a post idea.

What is your writing process? ✍️

Normally I write a little introduction, welcoming everyone to the post, then I write the main body of the post and then sort of an outro! In the outro, I usually thank people for reading and share my social media!

Thanks so much for reading and also thanks Zainab for joining me for this post! If you’d like to do a collab post with me visit my Contact Page for more information. Have a spectacular day,
