Good Morning! I hope you are excited because this post holds my very first (and quite possibly my last ever) vlog. A couple weeks ago when I offered y’all the opportunity to ask questions and I said that I would answer them in person, I had NO IDEA how hard it was going to be to make a video. Emotionally, physically, practically hard. It was like hello insecurities and stage fright! Oh dear. But I made it through and you better watch this video because I put so much blood and sweat into this one! (It is okay if you do not have time for the video now, you can see my summary below!)
DO YOU HAVE A QUESTION FOR ME? I am continuing to answer your questions so please fill out this form to submit your question and I will get to it! XOXO
1. Do you go by Elizabeth or Beth? (Anonymous)
I go by both! I went by Elizabeth until Kindergarten and then I could not write my whole name on my papers. My teacher suggested that I come up with a nickname and I have been Beth ever since. I always have loved both names but found the transition hard/weird so I always just go by Beth. When I started getting into blogging, I discovered a world where I could be Elizabeth and not confuse everyone – turns out, I still do! HAHA
2. What type of camera do you use/ do you take your pictures / did you take photography classes? (Asked by Itunu)
I use a Canon EOS Rebel T3 and I love it! It is so new to me but I am learning lots. I do take a majority of my own pictures myself or I set up a tripod. Bruce (my husband) also helps me take a lot of pictures too while we are out! He is the one who got me into photography! I have never taken a class but I would love to! Let me know if you have any course recommendations! For more photography answers & tips, check out this post!
5. When was the turning point when you felt that you could start putting money into your blog? (Asked by Andrea)
This is such a good question! I think this was when I decided to take my blog seriously. When I was confident in it as my hobby and creative outlet, I wanted to start using my fun money to try new things. To learn, grow, expand, and be professional. When I chose that this place was worth the investment to me, that is when I was okay putting some money into it! Here is an article on that process that dives a little deeper into this question!
