Common Mistakes New Bloggers Make

Hello, everyone! This is Q’Zion, and welcome back to The Joys and Trials of a Christian Teen! Being a part of the blogosphere is like a dream for those of us who love to write, inspire, and create. But when many bloggers make the decision to create a website of their own, there are a few common mistakes that I have noticed being repeated.

So whether you’re a beginner blogger wanting an overview on what to expect or a more experienced content creator needing some blogging advice, these common mistakes to avoid that I have noticed myself and other awesome content creators make is for you!

Not Having a Clear Purpose or Audience

For my fellow teen bloggers, it can be easy to create a blog just for the fun of it! I often see new bloggers post a bunch of random–but really entertaining–posts with little repurposed content or common topics. And while displaying our personalities in what we do and post is important, it’s also crucial that we have an idea of what audience we’d like our blog to reach or resonate with.

E.g. when you choose the name and major topics of your blog, you want to make sure that what you’re posting will appeal to your target audience–whether that be people in a certain age group or with similar interest as you.

Lack of Consistency

Not having a blog post schedule has got to be the largest–and most common–mistake that I’ve seen within the blogging community. At first, some new bloggers will post excellent content every single day . . . and then they’ll disappear for a month. Trust me, I understand that some things come up in our lives, such writer’s block or a lack of motivation, that can make it difficult to keep posting content. But at the same time we have to remember that the only way to get our blog to grow is by being consistent. Posting only two days a week can do wonders for a blog’s traffic–all we have to do is show up and stay committed!

Grammatical and/or Punctuation Errors

Alright, I’ve got to put my hand up on this one. While writing the first draft for a stellar blog post, it can be easy to accidentally miss a letter or type a word twice. You see, the fact that we make simple errors like these is not the mistake; it’s when we make the errors and fail to revise them. Re-reading your blog posts aloud before you introduce them to the public is the best way to avoid grammatical mistakes. You could even read them aloud to a second person to catch errors you may miss and get a second opinion. Either way, revision is one of the keys to making every post the best that it can be.

Not Engaging with their Audience

It’s not uncommon that I’ll see 3-5 comments underneath a blog post . . . and all of them are by fellow bloggers complimenting the writer’s work. Thanks to the wonderful invention of notifications, we get a message every single time someone comments on our posts. And since one of the main goals of most bloggers is to build an audience, its important that we show our appreciation to the supporters that we already have. Not only will your viewers appreciate it, but you could even make a few new friends along the way.

Creating Extremely Short Blog Posts

Another common trend that I’ve seen going on, especially within the last few months, is bloggers making five- to twenty-word posts about five times a day. And all they do is tell their viewers good morning, afternoon, or night.

It’s always nice to greet your viewers before you get into the topic of a blog post, and short posts are acceptable now and again (especially on holidays.) But you want to make sure that you’re not just posting to post–after all, we want our readers to see our effort when they look at our blog. Not a bunch of short spam posts piling up in their email.

Choosing Quantity over Quality

When you create your blog, it’s easy to want to post every single day to get your website out there! But when you’re posting five times a day, it can become a challenge to give every single post your all. Therefore, even if you can only create one post a week on your blog–that one, well-written post is probably much better than five rushed ones.

Not Using Attention-Getting Blog Post Titles

Ahh~titles. They’re the first thing that anyone who stumbles upon one of your posts will see–alongside your images when viewers are browsing WordPress Reader, which are also very important. Therefore, it’s important that you add relevant, fun titles to your posts that get the main topic across and grab your viewers’ attention. There are a lot of great bloggers and posts out there: that’s why we need to use our titles as a strategy for convincing our viewers to click on ours.


So, those were some of the most common mistakes that new bloggers make, and I hope each and every one of you got something positive out of it! Also, I’d like to know, what are some common mistakes that you notice and/or made that I missed here? And if you’d like, is there any advice that you’d like to give to other bloggers to prevent them from making that mistake? Feel free to share your responses to these discussion questions in the comments!

Have a beautiful and blessed day or night, everyone! God bless you all and I’ll see you next time! Peace in! ♡

Imagine A World Without Music – Words of Wisdom #22

Psalm 150: 1-6 -- New International Version (NIV)

1 Praise the Lord.

Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty heavens.
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
    praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
    praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
    praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
    praise him with resounding cymbals.

6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Could you imagine a world without music? That means no instruments. No melodies to listen to when you get home from school or work. None of your favorite singers or musicians. No singing in the shower.

For most people, music is a part of everyday life. In fact, many people use music as a way to get through the hardest of moments in their lifetime. And considering that many of us consider the blessing of music a part of life, it’s really difficult to imagine what life would be like without it.

In today’s episode of Words of Wisdom, I will be touching on the subject of music, the reason why God gifted us with music, and what life would be like without music for followers of Christ. Let’s get started!

Why Did God Give Us Music?

I can’t necessarily give a direct reason as to why God blessed us with music–although I’m eternally grateful either way–but I can share a little bit of how I feel when I listen to music, and how it influences me on a regular basis.

When I listen to music, I feel an indescribable happiness and sense of peace; as if in that moment, all the bad things in the world have faded away. I often use music to relax after a long day or worship the Lord, and I believe that gospel music is an outlet for us to build a closer relationship with God. Songs such as “Because of Who You Are” let us discover more about who God is and what He says in His Word; this means that we can learn a lot about the Bible by listening to godly music. Awesome right? (But remember, reading God’s Word is still important.)

Further more, have you ever been in a tough spot in your life, and then all of a sudden a song came on that tells you exactly what you need to hear? Almost as if God himself is speaking to you through a melody, telling you that it’s all going to be alright? It’s always been amazing to me how a simple melody can carry 1,000 words. And I think how music can be one of God’s ways of communicating with us makes it that much more powerful.

What Would Life Be Like (for Believers) Without Music?

As followers of Christ, music is a huge part of our faith. I mean, one of the best parts of church every Sunday is the music during praise and worship. But, how would our lives change if music never existed? This is a solid question to ask because of how much music is involved in the celebration of our salvation in Christ.

But the truth is, whether or not music is involved in our worship, we can still praise the Lord. Just think about it: music is only one way that we can worship as followers of Christ. Praying, reading the Bible, loving our neighbors as ourselves, giving, fellowshipping, and being obedient to God are all ways that we can worship the Lord. Music is like the icing on the cake when it comes to giving God the glory . . . but it’s far from the only way to do so.

In fact, I think that’s one of my favorite things about being God’s daughter; there are so many ways to express the love that I have for my Heavenly Father.


As Christians, the first thing that may come to mind when we hear the word “worship” is singing our favorite gospel hymns on Sunday morning. And it is true that music is a great way that we can deepen our faith; after all, God himself loves music and named the instruments for us to praise Him with. But worship comes in more forms than one. And that is something that could never change: even in a world without music.

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! God bless you all, and I will catch you next time! ♡

Paperback vs. Hardcover Books: Where Do I Stand? ♡

What’s up, my fabulous followers! This is Princess Q (a.k.a. Q’Zion) and welcome to my blog! ♡

Now, to all of my fellow book fanatics, there’s really no such thing as a bad way to read a good book. From audiobooks, to hardcovers, there are so many different ways to read! And while all bookworms love a good story, we each have our own preferences for how we like to read. One of the largest debates among the bookworm community is the simple question: Are paperback or hardcover books better?

Although it may seem silly to most people, a majority of bookworms have a preference between the two. Honestly, I have both paperback and hardcover books in my collection, and as long as I have a book that I can hold, I’m a happy camper! But I thought it’d be cool if I had a little discussion about what I like about each, and whether or not I have a true preference between the two. Let’s go!

Paperbacks

I think we can all agree that paperbacks are probably the most convenient when compared to hardcovers. They’re cheaper, lighter, easier to transport while traveling, and they take up less space, which is super helpful for those of us who have hundreds of books in our collection.

I have to admit that if I put a book in my purse to take with me while I go out, it’s most likely going to be a paperback. They just have this classic “homey” feeling when holding them in my hands; and since I love to read while getting comfy in my bead or on the couch, that is a huge bonus!

Hardcovers

Whenever I get a hardcover book, the one thing that I can think is “fancy.” If you’re someone who highly values the aesthetic of your bookshelf, these are probably the way to go. Hardcover books last longer, are harder to stain due to dust jackets–or those little thick wrappers that wrap around the cover–and make for a much more luxurious reading experience.

It would be a lie for me to say that I don’t love all of my hardcover books. Not only is the cover art absolutely gorgeous, but they are also so nice to look at on a shelf. Although, when I’m reading them they are a lot heavier to hold, which isn’t the best as someone who likes to be comfortable while reading. And even though I adore dust jackets for their function and how they look, I almost always end up setting them to the side while I read. Despite these few drawbacks, I can’t deny that the fact that hardcover books are so gorgeous makes up for them.


Okay, so I know that you guys are still waiting for me to answer the question. Which type of book do I like the most: paperbacks or hardcovers? But to be honest with you, I’d have to say neither. At the end of the day, they both have their pros and cons. As long as it’s a good book–and preferably one that I can physically hold–I couldn’t be happier.

Well, I’ve already told you all where I stand in the paperback vs. hardcover debate. But what about you? Do you prefer paperbacks, hardcover, eBooks, or audiobooks? In fact, do you have a preference at all? I would love to hear from all my fellow bookworms in the comments!

Have an awesome rest of your week, everybody! God bless you all, and I will catch you later! Peace in! ♡

It’s National Photography Day | Here’s what I did to celebrate ♡

A/N~Every photograph that is present in (and on top of) this blog post, was taken by me, and therefore each of these photos are my property. Please do not redistribute or use any of my photographs for any reason. Thank you, and enjoy the post! ~ Q’Zion ✨

Guess what, y’all: today is Friday. Hallelujah! I hope you all have had an amazing week! You know, there’s something that I realized earlier today: it’s been a while since I’ve practiced my photography. And by that I mean have an entire photoshoot, like I usually do on the rare occasions that I go out of the house. But then I found out that today is both World Photo Day and National Photography Day!

And since most of you know that I have fell in love with photography ever since studying it in my Visual Art class, last year, I decided to take a few photos outside to celebrate. What can I say? It was absolutely gorgeous outside, this afternoon. Anyway, here are a few of my favorite shots that I took today. Enjoy!

What’s funny is that I took a majority of these photos whilst Goodmommy—my grandmother and guardian—was driving. So although the diagonal line in this photo wasn’t intentional, I have to admit that I don’t really mind it.

Landscapes in nature are some of my favorite things to photograph. I think that when it comes to the outdoors, there’s so much variety when it comes to lines, shape, and color. There’s literally an opportunity to take a great photo at every corner. It just takes a little patience and the speed to snap your shot at the perfect moment. I thank God that in half a year, I’m already seeing some improvement.

I’ve got to admit that I’m absolutely in love with this one! The clouds and sky have been so pretty lately. Plus, the color from the flowers are just right to add a little brightness to the photo! God definitely had everything arranged perfectly for me, today! Thank you, Jesus!

Me and Goodmommy like to change the wreath on our front door every season or upcoming holiday. I’ve got to admit that this one is one of my favorites. Although, purple, pink and blue are my favorite colors—especially when they’re all together—so I may be a little biased.

Although the shot of these bushes are probably the most simple out of all of these photos, I really like it for some reason; the way that the leaves are two colors gives a really cool effect! I guess that just goes to show that sometimes, the most simple things in life can be the most beautiful of them all.


Alrighty, so those were some of my favorite photos that I took in celebration of National Photography Day and World Photo Day of 2022, and I have to admit that I’m super happy with the results! Hopefully, you guys liked them, too!

Which one of my photographs in this post did you like the most? What’s your favorite thing to take pictures of? Also, what did you do to celebrate National Photography Day—if you knew about it before now? I would love to read your responses in the comments!

Have an amazing weekend, everyone! God bless you all and I will catch you later! Peace in!

30 Last-Minute Things to do Before You Go Back to School

Happy Friday, y’all! Woah, has this week went by fast? I’ll answer my own question: yep. Although many of us are about to go back to school–or just beginning school–that doesn’t mean that we have to throw in the towel with having summer fun just yet.

To make this summer break even more memorable, it’s important that we take the last few days and weeks before school begins and check off a few last-minute additions to our bucket lists. As some creative inspiration for things that you can do to kick-off the beginning of a new school year–and the climax of summer–I’ve provided 30 activities to give you a head-start! Let’s go!

1. Watch a highly anticipated movie at a theatre with your family (Minions: The Rise of Gru, D.C. League of Super Pets, The Bad Guys, Lightyear, etc.)

2. Make one last stop to the beach

3. Go on a road trip to a new place.

4. Make a movie with your friends.

5. Visit a waterpark.

6. Do some back-to-school-shopping at your local mall (clothes, school supplies, etc.)

7. Go fishing.

8. Have a lemonade stand in your neighborhood.

9. Volunteer at an animal shelter.

10. Complete your summer reading with a book that you did not finish.

11. Create a wrap-up of your summer in doodles.

12. Unplug for a day and go outside.

13. Go to an ice cream shop that you’ve never visited.

14. Go to a drive-in movie with family.

15. Challenge yourself and a friend to make a tower with pencils: see who can stack theirs the highest.

16. Draw chalk-art on the sidewalk.

17. Team up with your siblings or best friends and cook a meal for your parents.

18. Bake a cake. Then, try to decorate it while blindfolded. (P.S. have some paper towels on hand! ;))

19. Attempt to break a (safe) Guinness World Record–with permission from a parent and/or guardian, of course.

20. Visit a National Park.

21. Read the Bible to get rid of back-to-school jitters.

22. Try listening to a new genre of music.

23. Go camping in your backyard.

24. Watch the sun rise and set. And don’t forget the photos!

25. Start a prank war with your family or friends.

26. Go mini-golfing on a sunny day.

28. Visit a science or kids’ museum.

29. Enjoy a family game night with your favorite board games.

30. Plan a scavenger hunt for your family and friends.


We tend to have a long list of things that we want to do when summer begins. And even though the time flies by, doing fun things like this is the perfect way to recharge and relax before a brand new school year! Remember, summer isn’t over yet–let’s make the most of it!

Who’s Ready for Highschool? | How to Get Prepared — Reblog

A/N~ Happy Saturday, everyone! Let. me. tell. you. Today was a busy day, for me. Still, I decided to reblog this super fun post of mine to help out 8th and 9th graders to prepare for high school, since most schools are already/almost back in session. I hope you all enjoy it!

When you’re in 8th grade, it can be a lot to think about your future. It’s the last year of middle school, a.k.a. the time in your life where you start thinking about college and what career you want to pursue, all while trying to find out more about yourself and how you are changing. I know that it can seem like a lot sometimes. However, as a soon-to-be-freshman myself, I’m here to tell you that everything will be okay! We just need to get prepared. And here’s how!

1.) Make Sure You Have a Consistent Schedule to Better Suit the Upcoming Changes ~ Highschool is nothing to be afraid of. Still, it’s a new chapter of our lives that requires preparation. And that means a schedule that will better suit the changes. In high school we will have new classes, teachers, peers, schools and our grades begin setting deeper footprints. This means that we need to make sure that we have routines that will give us plenty of time to stay productive during weekdays.

2.) Pay Attention to Academic Areas that Need Improving ~ Most of us have at least one favorite subject. And along with that, there might be some subjects that you feel like you could improve in. Now is the time to put those feelings into action. If we go through the process of getting more comfortable with the subjects that we need help in, we are setting ourselves up for success in the future and in life.

3.) Maintain Good Study Habits ~ One of the biggest differences in high school vs. middle school is the amount of work. High school is when we really start to prepare for our future, so why not start early? Maintaining positive and stable study habits will help prepare us for what’s to come, making the load lighter when high school is in session.

4.) Ask For Help If (and When) You Need It ~ At one point or another, we’ve all had to ask for help, whether it was from God, a parent, a teacher, a friend, or even our communities. And if there’s any stage in our lives that we need to ask for help, it’s probably now. New stages can be exciting, but for others they can be nerve-wracking. So, whenever you need a helping hand to lay on your shoulder during this time of transition, don’t be afraid to ask for it. Asking for assistance is a skill that we will need to use in all stages of our journeys as people and individuals.

5.) Create an Organized Workspace ~ While study habits are important, the only way that we can study effectively is if we have a constant place to do so. When you come home from school (or when you do your work if you’re homeschooled, like me) it makes it much easier to focus when you have an effective study space to get the job done.

6.) Get Your Priorities in Check ~ Prioritizing what we find the most important in our lives is crucial to preparing for grade 9. Peer pressure is just about everywhere in most public schools, so make sure that you are in check with what and whom you should spend your time. High school is all about preparing for adulthood, and while we still have time left before then, making priorities are a must for another successful school year!

7.) Relax~We Got This! ~ No matter what, remember that as long as you give it your all, you’ve got it together! You are capable. You are smart. You will succeed. You are getting better every day. You got this! Don’t forget to say these things to yourself whenever you need some words of encouragement. We can’t overlook mental health! <33


This guide for How to Prepare for Highschool was such a blast to create! I’m super excited for what high school has in store for me, and I hope that now you are, too. Don’t forget that with effort, the willingness to ask for help, positive affirmation, and academic preparation, high school will be smooth-sailing. All we need to do (besides these tips) is relax and enjoy what’s soon to come!

Summer Solstice | A Haiku in Honor of Summer

First day of summer 
Sun sits lofty aloft 
The glistening sea
-- A Haiku "Summer Solstice" written on June 21, 2022 by Princess Q'Zion. All Rights Reserved.

Welcome, everyone to the first–and longest–day of summer! Although a majority of us have already been enjoying the “summer experience” after another school year ended, today is the beginning of the real summer fun.

Today the Earth orbits the Sun at a specific angle, making the large star appear at the lowest or highest point in the sky. Not only is it really beautiful–making it the perfect opportunity for selfies–but its also the start of road trips, family gatherings, visits to the beach, leisurely bike rides, county fairs, and all the other amazing elements of the season of summer.

So I wanted to ask you guys, what are your plans for this spectacular time of year? Traveling across the world? Writing a novel? Eating some hot dogs with your family? Sleeping in at home? There are so many things to do–the list is pretty much never-ending. Feel free to share some of your goals for this summer and/or some things on your summer bucket list in the comments. I would love to hear from everybody!

Thank you so much for reading, and I will see you all next time! Have a happy summer solstice! ♡

The BEST craft for summer

While it’s always nice to get a break off from school, sometimes it’s difficult to come up with things to do. But what I love about time gaps such as this is that they can increase your creativity, and help you try new things to serve as your entertainment.

Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been doing to spend some of my time during summer break. Yesterday, I mentioned that I got some new Rainbow Loom supplies, including some rubber bands and a hook. But the question still remains; what do I do with them?

Welp, here’s your answer!

Within the past 3 days, I’ve made a total of 12 mini 3D foods out of my rubber bands, all of which I made off of tutorials from the YouTube Channel feelinspiffy, the owner being the original creator of each of these super cute designs. To be honest, these are so fun (and easy) to make that it’s hard to stop once you’ve made it a hobby. Plus, they are so stinking cute!

Believe it or not, at one point I made over 50 of these, all either foods, objects, or characters, but I lost them in a move about two years ago. While I was pretty sad that I lost all of my creations, recently it dawned on me that it gave me a chance to make new “happy foods” that are even better than the first. And summer break is the perfect time to start.

I was a little nervous to get back into one of my old hobbies, since I wasn’t sure if I actually remembered how to use my loom. But I guess looming is one of those things where when you learn it, you’ve got it forever, as it immediately felt as if I never stopped. Thank God that I didn’t have to start from scratch LOL.

Overall, I wanted to post this today for two reasons. First, to show you all that it’s good to use free time as opportunities to use a little creativity. And second, that even when it seems like your work has dissapeared before your eyes, it is never too late to get back up and start again.

Have an amazing rest of your day or night, everyone! I’ll see y’all later! 💖

Fun in the Sun Book Tag ☀️

I don’t know why, but today I just felt like writing about something book related–I just didn’t know what. That’s when I saw some of the summer book tags on WordPress Reader–and I really loved some of the prompts. But instead of doing a book tag that’s already been created, I decided to make my own: The Fun in the Sun Book Tag.

I find these types of posts super interesting to read, so I’m excited to share another one of my own. To check out my first book tag, you can click HERE. Otherwise, let’s get started!

Rules:

  • Provide a link to the original creator Princess Q’Zion @ajoyfulchristianteen
  • Reiterate this list of rules before your responses.
  • Answer each question with one of your favorite books.
  • Nominate some of your blogger friends.
  • Have fun!

1. Ice Cream: A Sweet Book

Although I haven’t read this one in a while–probably about 2 years–I remember really enjoying it. This short, lower middle grade novel is about a girl named Taylor who has recently moved to Roxbury Park. She decides to join a local Dog Club, which begins to face competition with a luxury dog groomer right across town. Meanwhile, she faces the struggles of being the “new girl” as she experiences bullying at school. Overall the plot is really simple and straight to the point. But the adorable dogs and long-lasting friendships make for a really short and sweet read.

2. Hydrangea: A Book with lots of Character Development

An intriguing trait of the Smile series is that it is based on the teenage years of the author, Raina Telgemeier. I think that automatically adds a lot of originality to this graphic novel. After she gets braces due to a sudden trip, she struggles with learning to love herself, becoming comfortable in her own skin, and identifying who her real friends are. In the end, she develops to be more confident in herself, and smile bigger than ever before. This is definitely a book that I would recommend for all tweens and teens; it’s one of my favorites to this day.

3. Starfish: A Book with a Unique Concept

Twintuition is a series authored by actress twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry about twin sisters–Cassie and Caitlyn. As the two city girls–who’ve lost their closeness over the years–move to a small town in the large state of Texas, they soon discover their newfound power to see the future when they touch another person. This is a really cute read that has diverse representations with a unique concept and a sweet delivery of the theme of sisterhood.

4. Airplane: A Book that Started off Slow but Rose Beyond Your Expectations

Recently, I wrote a book review of Witchlings, one of the newest additions to my bookshelf. After the initial introduction of the main characters, the plot seemed to lack in action for a little while. However, once the gears finally started spinning, and the pieces of the puzzle began to connect, this has easily become one of my favorite fantasy novels.

5. Blazing Sun: A Book that Takes Place in the Summer

Soon after I finished reading the first addition to this series, All Four Stars, I knew that I had to get the sequel. Although I’ve just began to continue reading The Stars of Summer after a long break, I’m loving it so far. Considering that it takes place on a summer camp, with the 12-year-old protagonist (Gladys) being a food critic for the New York Standard newspaper on a mission to find the most delicious hotdog in New York, I feel as though it’s the perfect story for the summer.

6. Roller Coaster: A Book that Gave You the Giggles

DOAWK is one of my favorite series from my early childhood, mainly because the author Jeff Kinney never holds back with all of the humor. In this book, Greg learns what it’s like not to have electronics (like in the olden days), when he goes to Hardscrabble Farms for a week, where everything is old-fashioned. Although this book doesn’t take place in the summer, it gives me summer camp vibes. Plus, it’s a great option if you want to read something that’ll keep you laughing.

7. Sandcastle: A Book that Feels like a Fairytale

Grimmtastic Girls is a series set in Grimmlandia, the residence of a large scale of modernized fairy tale characters, including Cinderella (who prefers to go by Cinda), Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, Rapunzel, Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Goldilocks, etc. While this is a book that I read years ago–therefore I recommend it for elementary schoolers–it was still a fairy tale with many modern twists that I really enjoyed.


I hope you all liked this Book Tag just as much as I did. But to be fair, any post relating to books is one of my favorites.

As for my nominees for my Fun in the Sun Book Tag, I choose EVERYONE who is has read this post to give this new tag a try. If you post these questions on your blog, please provide a link to the post in the comments. I would absolutely love to see all of your responses.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a beautiful and blessed day, and I’ll see you next time! ✨

We reached 100 FOLLOWERS! Thank you!

309 days ago, on August 1, 2021 I posted for the first time on this blog. Ever since then I have learned so much about marketing, my writing skills have improved, I’ve met so many other amazing teenage and Christian bloggers, I’ve gotten wiser and I’ve gained a total of 100 of you guys (my loyal and amazing followers; 98 WordPress and 2 emails!!!

🎉 WE DID IT, Y’ALL! 🎉

Oh, but did you think that was all? Nope! As an extra bonus, today was the day where we reached 1,000 likes on The Joys and Trials of a Christian Teen!

I want to give thanks to God for giving me the perseverance of to post almost every day and bringing me you guys, my Goodmommy for constant love and support, and all of you for going out of your way to follow my blog—especially those of you who frequently like and/or comment on my posts. I appreciate you all, and I thank you for joining me on my journey.

In celebration of this huge milestone, I would like to do an 100 followers special. After brainstorming and considering all of your suggestions, I decided that this time I would like to do an assumptions about me post. But there’s one thing that I need to do that . . . your assumptions.

To join me in this amazing achievement that wouldn’t be possible without you all, I would really appreciate it if you would comment a few things that you assume about me based on my appearance, personality, writing style, hobbies, or other things that you know about me already. Feel free to get creative with your questions! The only type of questions that I won’t permit is those seeking personal information such as age, DOB (date of birth), etc. Otherwise, have fun and ask away!

After I have received a good amount of responses, I will answer your questions for the special. I’m super excited to read and answer your assumptions about me! And thanks again for all your love and support. I’m truly thankful for every single one of you.

Have a happy day, God bless you all, and I’ll see you next time! Bye guys! 🎉
