Thankful Blogger Friends Tag

Hi everyone, I was tagged by Ashley and Pilar for the Thankful Blogger Friends Tag! I love these girls! Please check them out and follow them! This is the second time I'm doing this because my lovely blogging app decided to just delete my whole post :( I meant to have this post up last night along with a Wet n wild review but it just wasn't working for me, today hopefully! So if you want to learn some more about me, click below!

How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging at the end of August, this year.

Are there any bloggers who helped you out/encouraged you when you first started your blog?

Yes! Pilar was actually my first follower and comment. I remember being SO excited! I still get excited everytime I get a new follower and I'm so thankful for all of you!

What Social Media has given you the most traffic to your blog? Is there a platform that you don’t use?

I have a twitter, that's probably what I use most often. I feel like I don't use it enough though. I also have a google+ but I have no idea how to use that honestly. I also have an Instagram!

How often do you post? Do you have a regular schedule?

Ideally I like to post 4-5 times a week it hasn't been going my way though haha! Work has been so busy and I've been so tired. I usually don't do much on the weekends either but these past few I've been so busy! I'll get back into the swing of things though :)

Where do you blog?

In my bed, or my boyfriends couch! My comfy spots :)

What camera do you use? What photo editing software do you use?

When I first started, I used my iPhone 4S because I didn't have a convienent way to get my pictures from my camera to my ipad. But I bought an SD card that has wifi so now I use my Canon Rebel t3i.

How did you come up with your blog name?

Well neener is just my favorite word. My cousin calls me neener so I just stuck that with makeup and it worked for me!

Do you do any regular “series” posts on your blog?

Not yet, but I'm starting one soon! Once every month or two I'd like to do an update post on products I buy. The posts would include 4-5 products and a mini update on if I still liked them and stuff like that!

What draws you to a blog?

I would say the first thing is the name, if it has a catchy silly name I'll click it! But what would keep me is a nice, clean layout and Interesting content!

What turns you off of a blog?

When they don't have interesting content or all they do is sponsored posts, and you know the product is crappy but they rave about it. I know people have their own opinions but sometimes it's too much.

How many blogs do you subscribe to? Are they all beauty related?

Probably around 100? I'm not too sure. Yes they are, I'd like to start following so crocheting and cooking blogs. Maybe even start my own one day. For now my beauty one is priority!

When do you generally read blogs?

I do all my blogging activities after work and on weekends!

What is your favorite type of post and why?

I love reviews! I can't tell you how many products I wasn't thinking of buying but did because I read a great review on it.

What is your least favorite type of post and why?

Being the holiday season, I'm not the biggest fan of the gift guide posts. I don't know, they just don't tickle me fancy.

NOW ABOUT YOU!! (If there are any you prefer not to answer, just skip!)

Where do you live? Tell us a bit about your city!

I live in a little country town in the Mitten.

What about your home?

I live with my Mom and Grandparents in a trailer.

Single or taken?

I've been with my boyfriend for 5 years.

Do you have children?

No! Not for awhile.

Do you have pets?

I have my dog Gemma, at home. But I consider all my boyfriends animals mine too! He has 3 dogs and 5 cats! It's a zoo :)

Do you have a "day job"?

Yes I'm a housekeeper.

3 words to describe yourself.

Goober, Opinionated, Excited!

3 favorite movies

Cruel Intentions, Fight Club & Nightmare Before Christmas.

3 favorite books

All of the Harry Potter books, Go Ask Alice, and The Giver, OH how I love The Giver and cannot wait until the movie comes out.

3 random/ weird facts about you

In high school my favorite class was ceramics. If I were rich I'd buy myself a pottery wheel and a kiln.

I love to cook, hate to bake.

I own as much yarn as I do makeup, no shame.

And that's it! This was fun to fill out, and now you know me a little better. I want to thank Ashley and Pilar for tagging me! I hope you enjoyed reading this and thank you!!
