This is a new segment on the blog and I am elated to share this with you. I will also be introducing other fun segments so that you all can participate and also get to know more about this blog and the author.
Therefore, today I will be answering some questions I got from my viewers/audience. Lets get started.
WHAT DOES UPFRONT BY LR MEANS AND OF WHAT SIGNIFICANCE IS IT TO YOU?
I had no idea how I wanted my blog to look like but I was sure I wanted my expressions to be truthful and authentic. The word “upfront” popped up in my head and that was it for me. I chose the word because it reveals my truth and originality. Upfront represents my advancement, authenticity and honesty. I chose this blog to represent my life and my truth. On the other hand, “LR” means Lashile Roye, which is my name.
HOW DO YOU FEEL WHEN YOU GET FEEDBACKS?
I really do love receiving comments concerning a post or people commending my articles. This means I am definitely doing something right. On the flip side, I have also received negative comments which I turned into constructive criticisms to further improve on my writing.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN STARTING A BLOG?
One of the greatest lessons I know is that time is never a factor when you are reshaping your life. Yes, time waits for no one but it should not also stop you from making a better decision. It is never too late for you to make a better decision. I knew I wanted to be a writer/blogger but I got caught up with other things but I started blogging anyways and it was not too late. Nothing is ever too late to start. Therefore, before starting a blog, you should however be intentional and be purposeful. You should also ask yourself sincere questions on what you would want to achieve.
Also, you need to find a niche and dwell on it. However, consistency is very important when starting a blog. Set a schedule for your blog and give your audience what they want.
HOW AND WHEN DID YOU DEVELOP A PASSION FOR WRITING?
I have always been interested in writing. I believe writing is my truth and through that, I can always express myself. I’m not the most vocal person but writing gives me a voice. Having a voice is never enough when you do not a medium to express it. Writing gives me that opportunity to air my voice. I developed my passion for writing at the age of 13 when I wrote my first poem and a short story which won me an award. Since then, I have never looked back.
WHEN DID YOU START BLOGGING?
I started blogging in November,2017. It has been a blissful journey of 5 months.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF WRITING?
I try as much as possible to interact with my audience and engage them in ways that I can.
DO YOU HAVE ANY REGRETS SINCE YOU STARTED BLOGGING?
Definitely none! I have enjoyed every bit of this and I’m looking forward to more. This blog gives me another life which compliments the one that I already have and I’m glad I get to share it with you.
Thank you for the questions I received and I hope you are satisfied with the answers. See you next Friday!
