Phew.  I had no idea answering blogging questions was going to take this long.  But I finished and I truly hope you find a few jewels of truth inside.  I hope I don't do another Q&A for a good long while.  In the meantime, please enjoy the post!  I can't wait to share my tips and thoughts with you.    

When did you decide you wanted to be a blogger? 
There wasn't any sort of life changing experience that made me decide.  I just did. My first blog was my sister’s idea and I was rolling with it until – BAM – I realized I wanted/want to be a blogger forever.

What's the biggest piece of advice you would give to another blogger?
ASK QUESTIONS.  If you don’t know how to do something or are hoping for a little advice then ask a blogger who knows their stuff.  Most everyone is happy to give advice, plus you usually end up making a new friend.

How did you pick the name for your blog?
I don’t remember exactly how I came up with the name. I remember, for a while I had been experimenting with different blog names, but nothing felt natural. I wanted something me. Then one day it sort of popped into my head, The February Fairy. I ended up changing it to February Fairy, for consistency and the alliteration sounds much better. But it mostly stayed the same.

The “February” part is because it’s my birthday month, and “Fairy” because I think every girl should feel as graceful, elegant and feminine as a fairy, that’s part of the message I’d like to convey through my blog.  

What is your biggest blogging tip?
Three people asked me this question, so I’m going to share my top 3 tips.

1.  Interaction is key.  Plus, it’s literally the reason I blog-to meet other girls all over the country or world.  Having a pretty theme and quality content is also important, but it doesn’t matter if you no one knows about it!  Every time you read a blog post tell the blogger.  Be relatable and enthusiastic about what you say.

2.  Write about subjects you enjoy.  Trying to fit in will do NOTHING for you.  People look for a unique blog and blogger.

3.  Use good grammar.  Of course, there are a some bloggers who can pull off tbh-s and little punctuation (like this girl right here), but if you are trying to write an informative post I don’t want to be Googling abbreviations.

My point is, interaction + being yourself + grammar = a better blog.  For even more on the topic I wrote a whole post about blogging tips right here

If you had to guess, how many people/blogs do you think you're subscribed to?
Gosh, a LOT.  Maybe 80 something?  I recently unfollowed a few blogs, so it might be less now.  

What is your favorite thing to read about on blogs?
I enjoy all types of posts, but one thing that makes me click is the promise of something.  The promise of learning something new or a better way of life.

What is your favorite kind of blog post to write?
Lifestyle and inspiration.  I love clicking publish hoping my post might make someone think differently.

What's your favorite thing about blogging?  How's your day going?

Today I'm going to be showing you my bedroom!  If I had it my way I'd redecorate weekly.  But since money is an object in this life, I've learned to re-purpose and reuse.

I have had many questions and requests for this posts, so I finally decided to do it.  My room is never this clean.  My sister literally came home and couldn't believe how much floor we have.  Enjoy!     

Warning: if you are sensitive to the color pink please leave now.  I do not want to cause anyone discomfort.  

First I have my gallery wall.  I've switched this up countless times, but this is the best it's ever turned out. 

Here I have my little hanging shelf.  I keep my purse, and a few knickknacks on it.  Usually it's pilled full of bags and jackets and sweaters.  

I have this beautiful bunting hanging above mine and my sister's beds.  I believe I got it from Target.

Here's a better look at it.  Both of your beds have matching spreads and headboards.  I love things that match.  

I've finally hung curtains in our room.  It bring in such a light and airy touch the room.  In case you didn't notice I actually hung them very crookedly, but I haven't gotten around to fixing them.

Don't you love these?  I hung them a while ago while ago when I was hanging the curtains.

Last I have a dresser, mirror and more random little tidbits.  I've found that this is one of the best places to do my makeup thanks to the wonderful lighting.  

What does your room look like?  What are the main colors?  Do you share with anyone?  Would you enjoy more personal/lifestyle posts?
