something different || q+a collab

 Today I have something kinda different for you all!
My blogging friend Victoria and I have worked together on a blog collab, and she is guest posting today!
We both thought of several fun, deep, or interesting questions, and we’re both answering them.
If you want to read my answers, head over to The Homeschooler’s Hangout and you’ll find them there!
So, without any further ado, let’s meet Victoria!

Wassup peeps, I’m Victoria from The Homeschooler’s Hangout! *winning smile* My blog can be summed up in three words: mental teenage girl. I don’t really hold back on the weirdness, so, yeah. I try to be funny and write witty posts on all kinds o’ stuff. Thanks, Sunshine, for doing this collab Q&A! Onto the questions.

1. If you could spend a day with anyone in the world, past or present, who would it be?

Well, I’ll get to see all the Bible characters in Heaven, so…huh. I guess one of my favorite Youtubers xP

2. If you could have an exotic animal as a pet, which one? 

Probably a lion.

3. Would you rather go to space or down into a deep-sea trench?

I guess a deep-sea trench…

4. Would you rather live in a treehouse or someplace underground?

Treehouse.

5. If you could jump into any video/computer game, which one?

The computer game Super Mario 64 o.o It was so fun…*sighs*

6. If you could only save three things form your burning house, what would they be?

My bedroom, kitchen, and garage. JK. My tablet, laptop, and wallet.

7. Would you rather have no one attend your wedding or your funeral?

Funeral. I mean, I’ll be dead, so I won’t care. I would just hope people were at home mourning, not fighting over my stuff.

8. Would you rather have the ability to be invisible for a day or the ability to read minds for a day?

I’d want to read minds.

9. If you could know the absolute and total truth to one question, what question would you ask?

If a person had never heard of God or the Bible in their entire life and died, how would they be judged?

10. What is your first memory as a child?

I have no idea what the first one is…I literally have the worst memory. Sorry.

11. What do you see yourself doing ten years from now?

Lounging in the spare room of my parents’ house. Nah, I kind of see myself married, maybe with a kid.

These photos were taken in my room…’cause that’s where I am today-doing some studying, writing, and obviously photography, editing, and blogging.

This time of year is when my room suddenly becomes my happy place. The lighting is brighter and cleaner, I have my spring and summer decor out, and somehow it all comes together into my own special haven.

blogger recognition award

Guess what!? Allison Joy, from The Words of a Writer, has nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. Thanks so much!

THE RULES:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Write a post to display your award.
  3. Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  4. Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  5. Select (up to) 15 other bloggers for this award.
  6. Comment on each blog to let them know you nominated them and link to the post you created.

HOW IT STARTED:

In January 2016, have I started blogging at Words On A Page. Why? Well, I just thought it would be fun to have a blog.

A year later, in January 2017, I set up this blog, because I was feeling the need to upgrade, get a new name and url, and started really creating my own quality content.

ADVICE:

My advice to new bloggers is to do lots of research and have a good plan. While I tend to research stuff a lot, one of my biggest mistakes when I started blogging was doing absolutely no research and having no plan. Before starting a blog, choose a name and url! Figure out what you’re going to blog about! Have some content ready beforehand!

I mean, maybe this is obvious, but those were things I didn’t think about at all before I started blogging, and that was a bad idea. So yeah, plan, plan, PLAN!

WHO I NOMINATE:

The Homeschooler’s Hangout

theamigirl

Thee Adventurette

Chloe’ Mae’s Cottage

one year…

I couldn’t let today go unnoticed. You see, it was exactly a year  ago that I published my first blog post!

Here, a year later, I now have:

106 followers

841 visitors

4546 views

129 posts

and

757 likes

Besides those lovely numbers, I have also gained things that can’t be measured, such as creativity in areas like photography, editing, and graphic design skills, and much more.

I’ve been blessed to come across other bloggers that share many of my same beliefs, hobbies, and talents.

So, here is to another year of growing and learning…

Care to join me?

Pictures On a Page || It’s October!

Hello all! Can you believe it’s fall already, much less October? Somehow this cooler, cozier weather has given me lots of blogging inspiration, so be looking for some fun posts!

Just to give you an idea of my blogging schedule, I’ll be posting Pictures On a Page every Sunday with pictures I’ve taken over the previous week. On Wednesdays I’ll be posting a “random” post – recipe, DIY, or other stuff. And on Saturdays, I will be posting my verse of the week!

Today I have a Pictures On a Page for you! I’ll explain the pictures as you go through them, so without further ado, here we go…

This is the photo from the last day of the September Photo Challenge.  The prompt was, “Warmth,” so I took a picture of a cozy flannel scarf of mine.

These two are from this morning, after it began raining. I love how the one on the left turned out!

See you all Wednesday!
