Meet the Blogger: Aisling

Hey guys! I hope you're all having a lovely day. Welcome to the very first part of my new 'Meet the Blogger' series, I'm so excited to share these fabulous creators with you all. Some of the questions are blogging related and some are just random to let you guys get to know the person behing the blog. Today I'd like to introduce Aisling from thisdreamsalive.wordpress.com! Hope you enjoy!






1. Introduce yourself!

My name is Aisling (pronouced Ash-ling), and I'm a 22 year old Irish blogger.

2. Describe your blog and why you started it.

I write book reviews, talk about coffee, bucket list & travel updates, and occasionaly go on a rant so it could be descibed as a lifestyle blog. I've been blogging on various platforms since I was 14 but just before starting college in 2015 I deleted my old social media accounts and started everything again for a fresh start.

3. What was your favourite blog post to write and why?

I'm torn between my post Like a Girl and Girls Who Rock as my favourite posts, because girls deserve to be empowered.

4. If you could travel anywhere in the world for free where would you go and why?

California is on my bucket list, there's so much I want to do there! Ideally I would get there in 2019 because my favourite band, My Chemical Romance, based on of their albums in Californa 2019 so I want to go to fulfill my teenage emo-phase dreams.

5. What's been the most challenging moment of your blogging journey so far?

Being afraid of what people will say in my real life, the blogging community is usually lovely and supportive, as well as the readers, but some people in real life think blogging is weird or don't want me to be open.

6. What's your favourite thing about being a blogger?

My favourite thing about being a blogger is having a space to say what I want, I'm also a journalist which I love but it can be quite restrictive in terms of writing style and what I can actually say so I have much more freedom on my own blog.

7. What's your favourite book, movie and tv show?

I have a few favourite books but I think I'm going to pick the Bell Jar as my favourite. My favourite movie has been the Lion King since I was born, and right now I really like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. 

8. What is your number one piece of advice for new bloggers?

My advice is to write about what you love, and not about what you think will get views. People can tell when you're genuinely passionate about something, and if you're selling out for views you're going to end up hating blogging.

9. Who are your favourite bloggers?

 I love http://asphodelmoon.blogspot.com/https://writersblockwhat.wordpress.com/, and https://crazyonclassicrock.com/

10. Where do you think your blog will take you in the future?

I would love to make a living from my blog in the future, it started something for fun and it still is, but I really don't want a real job! 

So that's it for this week's 'Meet the Blogger' episode, let me know what you thought in the comments! I will link all of Aisling's social media below so you should definitely head over and follow her. Also if you have any questions you think I should include in more episodes of this series let me know. Thank you so so so so so so much for reading!

  2. I really loved getting to know you in this post. I can completely understand the wanting to come to California part (just to come here anytime soon the wildfires has the whole northern part of Cali all Smokey so the air is really bad) but I loved this post!
