Come Introduce Yourself || Reader Q&A

Happy weekend, everyone!

Today’s post will be a little different than usual – I’m celebrating reaching 500 blog followers with a reader Q&A! I said a while ago that I would do a giveaway when I reached this milestone, but I changed my mind – getting to know you guys better seems like a lot more fun. πŸ˜€

Before I explain the Q&A – thank you all SO much for following my blog and reading my posts! It means a ton to me that people take the time to read my blog and leave friendly encouraging comments, especially considering how awful I am at commenting back on all of your lovely blogs. XD THANK YOU! You guys are the best. ❀ Now onward to the Q&A!

This is a pretty simple concept – just leave a comment and tell me about yourself. πŸ˜€ Whether we’ve talked before or not, I’d love to get to know you better! Don’t be afraid to ramble – have fun! List some random facts about yourself, talk about your hobbies – whatever comes to mind is great. If you have no idea what to say, then here’s a list of fun/random questions to answer that might help. πŸ™‚

  • What are some small things that make you happy?
  • Can you describe yourself in five words?
  • If you could do one thing and succeed at it, what would it be?
  • What does a regular day in your life look like?
  • Current favorite song(s)?
  • Favorite books/authors?
  • Dream career?
  • Favorite place to be?
  • What’s been the highlight of your day today?

There we go, I hope those look somewhat fun to answer! Oh, and if you have a blog that I haven’t followed yet, don’t hesitate to leave a link and I shall check it out. πŸ™‚

I can’t wait to see your comments – I’m going to read and reply to all of them! *points below excitedly* Ready, set, COMMENT. πŸ˜€

    What are some small things that make you happy?
    raindrops on roses and– Oh, man. Hearing songs I like–in commercials, in stores, on spotify..
    Can you describe yourself in five words?
    I can certainly try to.
    If you could do one thing and succeed at it, what would it be?
    Oh, man. Oh, oh man. This is going to sound crazy, but, tht has to be the writing a book on Canada dream.
    What does a regular day in your life look like?
    School, overthinking, blogging… swinging… attacking people with enthusiasm
    Current favorite song(s)?
    Light Up My Room is the first one that comes to mind. The Falling For the First Time.
    Favorite books/authors?
    Right now, Neil Schusterman is pretty high on the list because Scythe is top-notch.
    Dream career?
    Freelance writer!
    Favorite place to be?
    I like most places pretty equally, so! In the universe, I suppose!
    What’s been the highlight of your day today?
    Either discovering a BNL fan site, or writing the scene in which my MC finally, finally gets apprenticed to a mage. Or watching My Little Pony with my sister and giggling over it with her.

      Ahh, I LOVE Neal Shusterman – Scythe is amazing!! I’m eagerly anticipating the final book in the series. πŸ˜€ Haha, My Little Pony is hilarious, my younger siblings love it. XD

  2. Congrats on 500 followers!!! This is a super neat idea!

    My favorite book is Skyward by Brandon Sanderson (the greatest compliment I’ve ever received was when my brother – after he gave it to me for Christmas – told me that Spensa (the MC) reminded him of me XD). My second favorite is God’s Smuggler — this book shows so much of God’s greatness and it’s just…WOW. There is seriously no words to explain how amazing God is!

    “If you could do one thing and succeed at it, what would it be?”
    Honestly, there are SO MANY things I could answer with, like write a song that becomes popular, make a movie as meaningful as Endgame, run my own business, or publish a book that changes lives — but above it all, if I could choose one thing to succeed at in this life… It would be living wholeheartedly for Jesus.

    Hi! I’m Arunima. My name means red rays of the morning sun. My dream job would be an author or an artist (or both). I start High School in about a month and I’m more excited than nervous, but I’m still very nervous. I have wayyy too many favorite songs. My favorite author is Shannon Messenger. And I think this was a really creative way to celebrate your amazing accomplishment. Congratulations, again!

  5. Just had to establish my world dominance. I have returned with a legit reply.

    Number one: CONGRATULATIONS ON 500 FOLLOWERS!!! ❀️ I’m really surprised you don’t have over 1,000, especially with how long you’ve been around… your blog rules the interwebs. There are probably only one or two blogs I follow that don’t know yours, so my brain deems you the queen of bloggers. ALL HAIL CLARA

    Number two: I GET TO TALK ABOUT MYSELF THIS WHOLE ENTIRE COMMENT? YEET

    Kidding, kidding πŸ˜‚ Whether they say so or not, that is literally the inward reaction of every person who is going to comment on here. Don’t even try to deny it, random person who’s reading this comment.

    A few words about myself: I AM MADI AND I LIKE TO SUCCEED AT LIFE. I love adventure, music, and doing what God calls me to do! I blog, write, collect dolls, and minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ. ❀️

    I am dominating the world one first like at a time :’)

    I do have an idea of what to say but I would like to answer all these questions anyway AND further establish my dominance with the longest comment. πŸ˜€

    What are some small things that make you happy? // Little adventures, sunshine, music, clean happy pretty colorful organized spaces, happiness! πŸ˜€

    Can you describe yourself in five words? // Determined, intense, creative, ambitious, and cocky. πŸ˜€

    If you could do one thing and succeed at it, what would it be? // Do what God has called me to do. And I WILL succeed at it, failure not be an option >:D

    What does a regular day in your life look like? // Oh goody, I love this question. Currently, my daily schedule looks like:

    wake up and chat with you
    eat food
    shower & get ready for the day
    lunchy
    aim to crush my to-do list (doesn’t always get crushed but I do aim for it, if I create one that day :’))
    usually go on a drive with musics, ahhh 😌
    dinner (sometimes while watching a show with my family)
    go to bed and chat with you until I fall asleep XD

    Current favorite song(s)? // Poster (feat. Aaron Cole) by nobigdyl. I actually don’t love it that much, but it’s the newest I have and constantly stuck in my head, so it’ll have to do. πŸ˜€

    Favorite books/authors? // Copied from my Camp NaNo profile: “Behold the Dawn by K.M. Weiland | Josie Beth, and myself because if you don’t love your writing no one else will lol later haters”

    Dream career? // Traditionally-published, bestselling Christian author

    Favorite place to be? // Outside on my swing ❀️

    What’s been the highlight of your day today? // I designed a wallpaper I really like, so I was super happy about that!

    WOOHOO, THAT BE MY COMMENT. I hope its length has not raised your stress levels :’) Congratulations again on 500 followers!!! You deserve 5,000!

      THANK YOU!!! ❀ Goodness, I don’t even feel like I’ve been blogging that long. :’) accepts crown hands it to you instead I think of you as the queen of bloggers, you’ve been around since I discovered the internet. πŸ˜€ XD
      πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I laughed out loud at that, it’s wonderfully true. :’D
      “dominating the world one first like at a time” could be your motto on your way to world domination! You could make a logo with Pinky and those words on it, it wouldn’t be confusing at all. πŸ˜€
      Same to all of that! Especially clean happy pretty colorful organized spaces, what a wonderful description. gazes sadly at messy desk
      WAIT, you forgot hilarious on your list of words. πŸ˜€ That’s a perfect description of you though. :’)
      YAY, of course you shall succeed! >:D πŸ˜€
      Definitely didn’t know any of that already, I was extremely surprised. πŸ˜€
      Ooh I shall go listen to it! Haha, I know the feeling. XD
      YAY, that’s a great highlight! And this was a GREAT comment, thank you so much for leaving it, it made me quite happy. πŸ˜€ THANKS! ❀

  6. CONGRATS ON 500 SUBS CLARA!!!! WOOT, WOOT, WOOT!!!
    Ook, hopefully me ranting about myself doesn’t bore you…
    I am a Christian and my main goal in life is to glorify God. I love music, art, poetry, photography, writing and simply being creative. I started art last yr in June, and though most people know me for my art, my real passion is for music. I sing and I’m learning guitar, I find it super difficult and I’m surprised I’ve stuck with it for a yr now. Although I read a lot of blogs, I do not blog myself. My fav colour is red. Things that make me happy are sunsets, the ocean, family and friends, singing, walks and lots of other things. I’m kind of a pessimist but recenty I’ve been trying to act more positive, I’m an introvert, I’m crazy but then I’m serious (yep, I have a lotta mood swings XD). I listen to a lot of Switchfoot, Twenty One Pilots, Imagine Dragons, OneRepublic and Needtobreathe plus lots more.
    I think I’m going to end there before it becomes an essay on my whole life. Congrats again, Clara! Have a great evening! x

  7. I LOVE this idea! Well, I love art, especially hand-lettering, kawaii animals and clay. I’m starting to learn about manual mode on my camera. Each season, I make a newsletter for my extended family, which is so fun. Small things that make me happy: snail mail (!!!!), pleasant scented foaming hand soap, laughing so hard you roll on the floor, when wild animals let you come up close, looking at photo albums, visiting someone’s house for the first time + getting the tour, & photos of people laughing.

  8. ❀️ YAY CLARA! πŸŽ‰ Super congrats!!! Your blog is a lot of fun and you totally deserve 500+!!! (Also, this is a really neat idea.)

    I’m Jewel! I want to be a fiction author and hopefully have a family down the road.

    I have a pixie cut and I love 50’s fashion as well as Jazzy music. 🎼

    I like to laugh! I cackle very loudly, and I cherish corny jokes. πŸ˜†

    HOMESCHOOLING ROCKS! (I’m homeschooled.)

    Legos, American Girl dolls and Star Wars Black Series figs are all awesome. I am a HUGE Star Wars Geek and I want to go to the next Star Wars Celebration for my birthday. 😍

    I’ve been writing a lot of short stories recently for a variety of contests, and I thank the Lord for helping me improve in what I love.

    I adore analyzing characters!

    People are my favorite… but I can fall into the trap of being a people pleaser.

    I can talk anyone’s head off and can somehow splurt out things when there really is nothing to say. 😬

    I don’t think I could live without my siblings. πŸ™‚

    My favorite color is yellow, but I tend to wear a lot of black… weird. πŸ€”

    Batman is the best, but Superman should have never been made.

    I enjoy quoting films, and I don’t like watching movies all by myself. πŸ™‚

    I really like your first question. So five words that describe me are: Humorous, contemplative, dramatic, geeky, and eager.

    Thanks for doing this, Clara! It is really interesting to get to know people!

  14. CONGRATS CLARA!! I’m Gracie, I’m 15 – my main passions are writing, sailing, swimming, blogging and doing whatever o can to make a difference. If I had to describe what I’m into really simply I’d just say ‘water and words’ haha. Things that make me happy are listening to music (I LOVE music – music is LIFE), the ocean, my friends and family (love em all to death), young people coming together to make the world a better place, quotes and lyrics, sarcasm and loads more. One of my fav movies is Les Miserables (because REVOLUTION). I could never choose a fav song or artist, but atm I love Every Breaking Wave by U2. Some of my fav books are The Secret Life Of Bees, The Hate U Give, Beautiful Broken Things, Are We All Lemmings And Snowflakes and Letters To The Lost.

    My family and I are currently driving round the entire UK coast living on only ten pounds a day as a challenge to raise money for charity.
    Oh yeah, and my plan for the future is to become a youth worker or a sailor (preferably both!).

    And ooh! This is such a cool idea, Clara!

    Well, my name is Danielle! I’m a clumsy but cheerful teen who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (a lot of people who don’t know the name of our church call it Mormonism πŸ™‚), and I have strong belief in God and Jesus Christ.

    I love to blog, draw, create stories in my head, plan my wedding ten years in advance, and design clothes as well as characters. My dream job would be a haute couture designer. THAT would be AMAZING. Imagine designing clothes for the richest people in the world. The amount of creativity needed is insane, but I feel like if I started designing in that field, I would never be able to stop. Of course, right now there are only about fifteen haute couture designers in the world because the standards are so crazy high. Anyways, if that never works out, I would also love to work in the design department in animation. I could help design characters and worlds as well as help create the stories, which would be so cool!

    Some small things that make me happy are having a productive day, eating ice cream, spending time with my sister, living the word of God, finishing a drawing, doing something with a thrill, and, of course, Chick Fil A. πŸ˜›
    I have three favorite songs right now. One is Loyal by Jasmine Thompson. I love the jazzy instruments mixed with such a chill beat and her gorgeous vocals. It feels like winter when I listen to it, and I love winter. Another song I love is Keeping Your Head Up by Birdy. The chorus just slams you with this inspiration that makes you feel like you can do anything. It makes me think of the Aztec, and I always start creating in my mind bizarre but beautiful costumes with feathers and patterns when I listen to it. The third song is Chinstrap Penguins from the Planet Earth II Soundtrack. I love the whole soundtrack to the end and back, but Chinstrap Penguins is definitely the best song on it. It feels powerful, like the ocean slamming against a rocky beach. I definitely recommend this song to any writers who are writing an epic fantasy. πŸ˜„

    I could go on, but this comment seems like it’s getting a lil long, so I’ll stop now. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Thanks for doing this, Clara! I really enjoyed it. πŸ˜„ And again, congratulations! ❀️

  19. I’m here for this! (I’m also very late) but here we go!

    Small things––somebody filling in the line of a song that I start. Especially a musical number. Not like β€œOld Town Road,” I know everyone knows that, but the words to It’s Quiet Uptown, for example.

    Driven, charismatic, squirrely, creative, talkative

    ACTING ACTING ACTING ACTING ACTING ACTING

    Waking up, slipping downstairs at the dark of night to do homework or jam out to music, eating a terribly un-nutritious breakfast, heading to school, coming home, listening to loud musical music and doing math at the same time (i do not recommend this method of study at all) and eating chocolate.

    I just got onto the Dear Evan Hansen train (yes, I know, I’m terribly tardy) but I’m into Hollyn’s new stuff, Shawn Mendes, and Ed Sheeran’s new music is pretty good too. And of course, anything by Billie Eilish.

    Joan Bauer’s books and writing style has recently been very impactful and fun to read, so I’d say her.

    Acting in film, writing music for Broadway, or writing a screenplay for a thriller movie.

    On my brother’s swivel chair.

    This, tbh. I haven’t talked about myself in a minute.

    Small things that make me happy: flowers, swimming, dancing, a puppy’s yip, when little kids come sit by me, and trampolines are some. πŸ™‚
    Myself described in 5 words: adventurous, crazy, dreamer, funny, and bookworm. πŸ˜›
    One thing I could do and succeed at: Um, write a book? XD Obviously, but I’ll go beyond that. πŸ™‚ Invent a device that can make you fly and is very lightweight. XD
    A regular day in my life: Get up, water village flowers, eat b-fast, chores, sometimes garden work, then I’m free! In my own time I read blog posts, write, write blog posts, read, and do stuff outside if it isn’t broiling.
    Current favorite songs: Prize Worth Fighting For (by Jamie Kimmet), Church (by Cochren & Co.), One More Day (by Aaron Cole), It’s Gonna Get Better (by Stars Go Dim), Zero (by Imagine Dragons), Irene (by TobyMac), and I Just Need U (also by TobyMac). Those are just a few! XD
    Favorite books/authors: My favorite authors are Nadine Brandes, J.R.R. Tolkien, Wayne Thomas Batson, Lois Lowry, and Trenton Lee Stewart at the moment. Favorite books include Fawkes, Romanov (haven’t gotten a chance to read the Out Of Time series yet!), The Mysterious Benedict Society, Lord Of The Rings, The Giver, The Isle Of Swords series, The Dark Sea Annals, and Great Expectations!
    Dream career: An author of course! I would like to have a publisher, but who knows?
    Favorite place to be: At Grammie’s house!
    Highlight of today: I didn’t have to water the village flowers because it rained all night! HOORAY!

    A few other things about me! I’m a weird kind of introverted that I don’t know ho to explain. I don’t have a very high heat tolerance, yet I still like summer better than winter. I love snail mail (that reminds me, will you be my pen pal? :))!! I really love fruit, especially mangos, blueberries, and watermelon. In fact, I’d rather eat those than chips, most of the time. πŸ™‚ I’ve tried the hobby of knitting, found I’m actually pretty good at it, but didn’t really like it.

    I’m so happy whenever I get my hands on a good camera.
    I love God.
    Hand lettering…
    Watercolor and artsy stuff…

    What are some small things that make you happy?
    – Hmmm, random beautiful aesthetic things. For example, I’m not sure why I’m so obsessed, but every time I walk into a small shop or whatever (most of the time it’s a boba tea shop ;)), that’s super aesthetic, I literally swoon over it, and I’m basically like AHHHHHHHH… (okay, that sentence was not grammatical at all, but whatever xP)
    – Pictures with good composition. Especially if there are some sort of lines in the photo, and it’s nicely parallel with the outlines/lines of the picture. xD
    – Cyan/turquoise
    – God’s AMAZING creation (okay, that’s probably not a “small thing” xD)
    – Stationaryyyyy

    What are some small things that make you happy? // This list could go on forever… I guess I’m pretty easily pleased, because all sorts of things make me light up inside – wildflowers, a good book, sunsets, plants and succulents, new art supplies, a kind comment (like the ones from you <3), capturing beautiful photographs, organizing or cleaning something that was really messy, music that fits my mood, Mule rides and exploring the farm with my family, going to church (more like a big thing, but XD), having meaningful conversations with friends, singing, barn dancing, pretty eyes, and just pretty things and aesthetics in general. They make me strangely happy.

    Can you describe yourself in five words? // Oh dear, I always feel like I’ll either under-estimate or over-estimate myself. XD It usually helps to think of it from a friends perspective, so… probably creative, talented, thoughtful, sensitive, and kind. ???

    If you could do one thing and succeed at it, what would it be?
    At this point in my life, I’d choose successfully selling my art. Overall, I’d choose living a godly life and supporting/inspiring others, or rasing a godly family. πŸ™‚

    What does a regular day in your life look like?
    Eh heh, I don’t really have regular days. XD I do usually wake up around 7:30 and go to bed around 11:00, but the in-between really depends. I try and do Etsy work/make art/social mediea/blogging in the mornings, and then help with office work/bookkeeping or hay delivering or rebaling in the afternoon, but those elements get changed up a lot. πŸ˜›

    Current favorite song(s)?
    Most things by Switchfoot, If You Fall by JJ Heller (and a bunch of her other songs), Agnus Dei by David Phelps, the Air for Free album by Relient K, and a bunch of Audrey Assad’s songs.

    Favorite books/authors?
    The Bible, the Narnia series, the Little House series, the MBS series, Anne of Green Gables series, A Severe Mercy, Sipping Saltwater, Jane Eyre, and tons of others.

    Dream career?
    An artist! I also think it would be fun to be and illustrator, like of books, or an editor.

    Favorite place to be?
    Maybe at church. I love my church family so much. ❀ Also out exploring our farm.

    What’s been the highlight of your day today?
    Getting an email about an upcoming art class workshop that took a lot of stress off my shoulders. XD

    1. hides because this is a shamefully late reply OH DEAR. I’m dreadfully behind on comments. XD Anyways, THANK YOUUUUU! ❀ It was so much fun reading your comment!!

      Ahhh, what a wonderful list of happy things. ❀ I would say that pretty much every single one of those things makes me happy, too. πŸ˜€

      Haha, I thought you did a great job, that description seems spot-on to me!

      Once again, GREAT answer, and I would say same here – except my “art” is photography/writing and I’m still figuring out how to make that a career. XD

      I don’t normally have regular days either. :’D That sounds like a pretty full day, though, which is always good!

      Ooh, I haven’t heard of several of those artists! zooms to Amazon Music XD

      Oh my goodness, I think you would make an AMAZING book illustrator! I think an editor would be a super fun job, it’s something I’ve considered before. πŸ˜€

      Thanks so much for the wonderful comment, Allison! ❀

  31. First off, congratulations on 500 followers!

    How hard can it be to think up some amazing things about such an awesome girl like me?

    I plan to become a published author by churning out books that people of all ages can enjoy.
    But I don’t want to just be an author because I also love math and numbers. Shocking, right? I think it’d be cool if I was an accountant or bookkeeper and an author as well.

    Even though I love writing, my spelling is probably below the grade average.
    But while my spelling is unsatisfactory for teachers, I think the immense amount of vocabulary and random facts I have stored in my brain will make up for it.

    I’m rarely seen without my nose in a book and headphones on. If you ask me what my favourite book is, you better pull up a chair and clear your schedule for the next 20 minutes. That is if you’re lucky enough to catch my attention.
    I listen to my music at an earth-shattering volume, so it’s very unlikely that I will hear you calling my name. My parents get quite annoyed because of it.

    I suffer from sleep depravation because the day doesn’t have enough hours. Since I have crazy dreams and goals, I’m constantly doing something. But between school, work, and family time, I’m left with a limited amount of space for writing, blogging, photography, and planning out the next step.
    Whatever I don’t finish when the sun is shining will be completed at night before I slumber. Besides, who needs 7 hours of sleep anyway?

    I am constantly trying to persuade my parents to let me fly to meet my best friend. I think they might be wavering though.

    Some random facts about me:

    I’m currently writing a novel called Chase
    I have hair thicker than a Redwood tree
    I buy too many notebooks that I never completely fill up
    I’m an introvert
    My favourite colours are navy blue, white, and black
    There is an entire drawer in my desk dedicated to markers
    I love crossing things off my weekly list
