Hey Guys so today I've got the first post in my The blogger behind series. Today I'm talking to the lovely Jordan from Jordan Courtney. I hope you enjoy these posts, if your a blogger and are interested in getting involved leave me a comment with your email address and I'll get back to you!
My name is Jordan and I’m 20 years old (soon to be 21). I Live in England and I run the blog www.jordancourtney.co.uk which very simply is named after myself. I blog about a variety of things from food to beauty and even my personal life and anxiety.
5 interesting facts about yourself.
These type of questions are always the hardest to answer I think! Definitely made harder by the fact I’m possibly the least interesting person ever.1. I used to have my tongue pierced.2. I‘ve only ever visited 3 countries.3. I find it really hard to tell people ‘interesting’ things about myself.4. I hate to sleep without socks!5. I can’t actually swim.
A favourite memory
My favourite 2015 memory has to be being invited to the #WrenFamilyFavourites event and meeting Linda Barker! I’m still in shock! My favourite all-time memory is probably when me and my family stayed in Anaheim for a few days when we went to America - we had Dennys every day for breakfast and Disney California Adventure was so amazing!
How did your passion for blog related things start?
When I first started my blog I was certain it was to only be about beauty. I was in the ‘I want to be a beauty blogger' mindset and this was inspired by all the lovely beauty bloggers I loved to read. However, as I settled into my blog I realised I had a passion for much more than that - I love the lifestyle posts as I like to have something personal to look back on and my food posts started from one recipe post which turned out well and got good feedback!
3 Favourite posts on your blog
In no particular order my three favourite posts have to be:
How long have you been blogging?
Technically, my first ever blog post was published 19th April 2014 but I didn’t actually get fully into blogging (i.e. being consistent etc) until December 2014.
What do you love most about blogging?
I love the community! I love the Twitter interaction (for example in chats), I love the comments people leave on my posts and I love the events where you get to meet and chat to fellow bloggers.
Do you feel like the blogging scene has changed since you started?
When I first started blogging I feel like it was only just coming out to be something that was seen as normal. Prior to this lots of people would laugh if you wrote a blog or made Youtube videos and you’d be called a weirdo. Recently it’s become more the norm and I love that.
Current most lusted after item?
The Urban Decay ft. Gwen Stefani is top of my wish list at the moment! I am shocking at applying eyeshadow but this palette is just so gorgeous! I hate spending money on myself though.
3 Favourite bloggers
Again, in no particular order, my 3 favourite bloggers have to be...Rebecca - http://www.fromroses.co.uk/
blog - I swear I’ve told her way too many times she probably thinks I’m so weird but I really do love everything about her blog!Kathryn - http://www.chaptersofkat.co. uk - I don’t think I have ever read a blog post of Kathryn's and disliked it. Such a lovely genuine person too!Becky - http://www.milkbubbletea.com - I’m not sure how I stumbled across Becky’s blog but I am sure it was one of the first I followed. Her photos are always so beautiful!
3 wishes for this year these could be personal or blog related
I actually wrote a blog post on my 2016 goals as I’m hoping this will motivate me a bit more! This year I would love to be able to pay off my credit card, get a new job and then finally a blog related one, I would love to be able to reach a few social media goals!
