Bloggers Spill Tea W/ Emsi Rose

Happy Friday everyone! Just wanted to start and say a huge thank for such a great response on the first blog post in this series, which I will link in case you have not read it yet. Today's post features the lovely Emily from Emsi Rose and once again her blog will be linked at the end of this post.

1. Describe your blog in a sentence?
As cliche as it sounds 'it's my little space on the internet' and I like to fill it with my thoughts on anything I, or my readers, want!

2. Does your blog name have any special meaning behind it?
I wouldn't say it has a 'special' meaning behind it. I've been referred to as 'Emsi' before so I followed it with 'Rose' - my middle name and Emsi Rose was born.

3. What//Who made you start blogging?
Around 2012/2013 I started watching YouTube videos and in 2014 wanted to have a go at it but felt too young so a blog seemed like the perfect way around it. I could upload pretty much any content that I would have done as a video and also remain anonymous.

4. Where do you get inspiration from to write your blog posts?
I'm just inspired by whatever is around me or whatever people want!

5. What do you do to prepare before uploading a blog post?
Usually promote it a little bit and make sure I'm happy with my photos. I definitely love taking photos.

6. What makes you want to blog consistently?
The sheer joy of uploading and seeing a response is lovely.

7. Do you like interacting with other bloggers?
I love it! I wish I did it more but definitely enjoy it when I do.

8. Have you ever followed a blog just to be nice even if you don't like it?
Probably, but I can't remember and will eventually unfollow because at the end of the day there will be people who don't like my blog and that's okay.

9. What do you love and hate most about the blogging community?
I love that everyone tries to support each other but at the same time, I hate that some people leave hate and see blogging as a competition.

10. Do you ever feel like no one remembers that you have feelings?
I'm lucky and have never felt like that!

11. Do you feel like the bigger you get, the smaller of a relationship you have with your readers?
I feel like as my blog gets bigger I get closer to my readers because there's more and, as a result, I spend more time interacting with them.

12. What opportunities have you gotten from blogging?
I've received a few emails from brands but have never followed through with them because they haven't been right for my readers or appeared as spam, so I wouldn't say I've had any concrete opportunities. However, I've had the opportunity to grow as myself and in confidence.

13. If you were to receive no views or comments on a blog post that you worked really hard on and you were super proud of it, how would you feel and what would your next step be to make sure that you don't experience it again?
I think like anyone I'd be disappointed but I don't write blog posts for the views and comments. I'd probably just promote it more!

14. What is your response to people that say blogging is easy?
I think it is compared to somethings but as a whole it's not. I just explain to them what goes into each blog post and they begin to understand. I think if you're negative about some things it's probably because you're not fully informed! It's pretty easy to make assumptions with something like blogging.

15. Have you ever came across or noticed bloggers that do it for the fame or money?
Definitely. You're always going to find someone that's doing it for a different reason to you but never to the point where they're successful with it because they don't appear genuine.

16. What do you think shows that a blogger is in it for products/ money/ fame?
When every post is asking for sponsors or is sponsored. I think a balance shows that you blog for yourself or your readers too.

17. Do you think that there is a certain time or milestone that you should reach before earning money from blogging?
Yes. I think you should have put up a few posts. I've seen bloggers working with brands after one post and I honestly don't know how they do it!

18. Is there a certain post/ colaboration (etc.) that you really regret doing?
Definitely not! However its always a shame when someone pulls out of a collaboration last minute and upsets me if I have to do the same.

19. Do you like reading sponsored content? and why?
I don't particularly look at whether a post is sponsored or not. I just read whatever interests me!

20. In your opinion, is there anything wrong with sponsored content?
There's always the concern that the views aren't totally honest but you have to trust the blogger and so there's nothing wrong with sponsored content. I'm all for fellow bloggers working with brands and being sponsored!

Can you relate to any of these answers?
