So you're a blogger? FAQs

The other day I announced my blog to the world. I thought many of you may have some questions about my hobby so I decided a FAQ type post would be the best way to address them.

Do you spend money on this?
I spent $12 to purchase my domain name and hosting from GoDaddy for 2 years. Other than that, no I don't spend money. I did all the design and code myself after reading a few tutorials.

Are you a famous blogger?
I wish! Companies are hardly throwing free products at me and Target isn't begging me to create my own interior design line. I did get to write this fun sponsored post though. Hopefully with now sharing and promoting myself to everyone I know I'll gain more exposure and maybe one day be a famous blogger. I'll know I've made it when someone offers to send me on a free vacation.

Does anyone actually read your blog?
Yes they do. I've actually made really connections through blogging and consider some of these friends. That's the coolest thing about blogging; you get to meet so many different people from around the world.

Why is your blog called Salsa and you don't just write about food?
When I started blogging I actually blogged under the title From Mississippi with Love. My background was orange and white flowers and was truly horrendous. I then started to be interested in the design aspect and self thought myself how to create something more ascetically pleasing using skills I'd learned in journalism classes and google. My design was red, white, and blue and featured an outline of the state of Mississippi. About two years ago I realized I really loved blogging and wanted a name that would make sense no matter where I lived, so after much thought I decided to rebrand. You can read all about that process and the explanation of my name here.

What's the best way to keep up with your blog?
In general I try to post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but sometimes life happens and I just don't get a post up. You can follow along via bloglovin by clicking that button to the left. I also maintain an Instagram and Twitter account solely for my blog.

Anything else you want to know about my blog?

I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
