Bloggers Spotlight-Gaia-s

Here is this weeks Bloggers Spotlight, Gaia-s a blogger of environmental protection, nature, and ecology. Basically I sent out a tweet on twitter, asking who would like to be part of blogger spotlight by answering some questions for us to get to know them better.

* Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?

I’m Anja Debeljak, a student of Environmental protection science and I used to study ecology. The blog Gaia-s is my outlet for my ever-growing need to share the knowledge and inspire people.

My blog is about environmental protection, nature, and ecology. I aim to share the knowledge and connect people interested in previously mentioned topics.

*What inspired you to start your blog?

Gaia-s is actually my second blog, which I started with an idea to share my knowledge and be at least a bit useful.

My first blog, however, stared out of boredom, that later grew into a bit of a passion, that now formed into Gaia-s.

*Who are your three favorite bloggers or influencers and why?

My fave bloggers are:

– Honey (from http://honeysroyaltybeauty.blogspot.com/) she is my best (blogging) friend and stuck around ever since I started blogging. Also, she makes awesome nail art.

– Charlene (https://twitter.com/blogabtnothing1) and her amazing Beechat. She is super supportive and the chats she hosts are awesome.

-Seeking Science (https://twitter.com/seekingsci) a blog up my alley, I simply enjoy their posts.

*What inspires you to keep moving forward with your blog?

*My wish to share and support from other bloggers. Also, I’m pretty stubborn so that helps.

*What is one piece of advice you would give to someone wanting to start their very own blog?

Blogging is tough; also you can’t expect people to do your work for you. YOU have to work for it, if people help you out, it’s just added benefit. Your blog is you and your passion. People in the blogging community will help you out, but don’t think they are obligated to do so.

Now that I scared you, I can tell you that once you get into it, it can become the best obsession and most beneficial hobby there is. Don’t give up.

Bloggers Spotlight with BestieTalks

Here is this months Blogger Spotlight, BestieTalks . They are best friends that run a blog together by long distance! How cool is that! Basically I sent out a tweet on twitter, asking who would like to be part of blogger spotlight by answering some questions for us to get to know them better.

* Can you tell us a little about yourself and your blog?

We are long-distance besties who created BestieTalks as a platform for us to have the ability to share our love for writing, travel, love and adventures. Our blog is something that connects us even though we are states apart. We live separate lives but are always connected and BestieTalks is proof of what we can do together..even when we aren’t together! Having a blog with my Bestie is like a grown up version of us sharing a secret journal.. except its visible to the entire world!

*What inspired you to start your blog?

We wanted a way to stay connected while enjoying something we do, writing. A blog seemed like the perfect outlet and something we can both be a part of while being thousand miles apart. (See above answer too.)

*What inspires you to keep moving forward with your blog?

Honestly, we inspire each other! We both live busy lives and have high expectations for ourselves. We have gotten great feed back on our blog and that is so inspiring in itself. Our future inspires us!

*What is one piece of advice youwould give to someone wanting to start their very own blog?

Keep going! Even if it feels at times like no one is reading your blog but you.. thats ok! Remember why you started and keep going because it makes you happy! Don’t give up…persistence always brings results!

Well I hope you enjoyed meeting our Blogger Spotlight! If you would like to be include in a Bloggers Spotlight, please feel free to message me!

December Goals

Here are some are some of my goals for the month of December. November wasn’t that successful for goals that I had in mind so I am hoping that December will be better.

No spend

Well last month for November did not work out, We didn’t really stick to it at all. I’m a bit disappointed by this. So for the month of December, I’m hoping to do better and have a no spend month on unneeded items.

Blogging

I had everything planned out but didn’t stick to it. Why, I don’t know. Life. By the time I get home from work, I’m tired and hungry. I make my dinner, hop in my bed and turn on my heating blanket to watch my YouTube videos. This month I’m going to try to work on blog post while watching my YouTube videos , hopefully this helps me stay on track.

Art

Honestly I haven’t really created much of anything in awhile. I have a few ideas but it’s just a matter of sitting down and starting.

Makeup

I haven’t played around with eyeshadow looks much in November, even though I got the Jacklyn Hill palette and the Boss Mood palette from Morphe. Those puppies are like butter. I think there was only one or two shades that haven’t really impressed me so far.

Daily Journaling

I really should get back into doing my planning/daily journaling, I was doing so well until the last few months I got out of the habit. Lately I’ve been feeling unorganized because of this. So I’m taking this as a sign to start back up.

November Goals

Its a new month and here are my November goals!

Surpass Octobers views

Honestly ever since I had let my domain expire in march I  have been struggling with views. I was roughly  getting anywhere between 500- 1500 views a month. Now I barely get 100-200. Which is insane. Since buying a domain again, my hope is that I get back where I was last year and earlier this year.

No Spend November

Alright we did this last year so we could move from downtown Milwaukee to the suburbs  and we need to do this again this year. Well, we don’t need to but I want to. Our bank account would like it and I would like new car tires and a washer/dryer combo by tax time.  Yes, we could use our taxes for that but we don’t want to use all of it on that. We would like to save a good deal of it and maybe even put a nice chunk down on our car to speed up the payments. We are already paying it off six months early, because we do split payments. Plus we have a trip coming up in January/February.

Journal/tarot/plan Daily

Just being more consistent with everything. I hardly did anything in September but October was better, 2 out of 4 weeks. But November needs to be better. Period.

Read the books I have and stop buying new ones

Easy enough to understand. I keep buying new ones and not finishing the ones I have. I need to stop. Please someone stop me.

One blog post a week min

Some months I’m really good at blogging and keeping up and some months not so much. I try to stay two weeks, ideally a month ahead but life happens.

More Consistent with @bloggingbeesrt

In case you didn’t know I run Bloggingbeesrt on twitter, which is a RT account. Basically you tag or mention Bloggingbeesrt and I RT you. Very simple. I am still fine tuning  daily threads, so please bear with me. I do run it my self.

Workout

So for October I was planning to a thirty day workout challenge and didn’t. I got a really bad chest cold at that time  and I’m still dealing with the cough but there “nothing” wrong with me. Um okay, bye Felicia.

I would love to hear what your goals are!
