500 follower Q + A!

Okay, you GUYS. There are 500 of you crazy people following on gfc! 500! Not to mention all you other non-gfc followers. Who even ARE all of you and why are you following me?! I'm kind of flabbergasted and I don't even think I comprehend that there are actually people reading the things I post. But, honestly, you readers are a huge part of what makes blogging so much fun! I have loved getting to know so many of you.

The truth is that sometimes I feel like I fail at connecting with you and probably have missed responding to countless questions or emails. And if so, please, please just pester me until I answer you, because my lack of response is completely unintentional. It's way too easy for an email or comment to get buried in my inbox and I really think I need a better system.

That being said, I wanted to celebrate reaching 500+ followers with a little Q+A sesh. But it's going to go two ways because I want to get to know you as much as I want you to get to know me.

First, I'd love for you to answer the following questions:
  1.  Are you a blogger or just a blog-reader?
  2.  What are some of your favorite blogs?
  3.  If you won an all expenses paid vacation to anywhere in the world, where would you choose to go and why?

Then, ask me anything you would like to know about me and I will answer them in an upcoming post! You can do this either in the comments or via email: kyleenoelleblog[at]gmail[dot]com.

Also, I've been meaning to make a FAQ page, so I'll just get that out of the way right now so you don't have to ask these ones:


Q. Did you design your blog yourself?
A. Yes, I designed the elements myself and then stumbled my way through getting them to actually appear on the blog!

Q. Do you offer any design services?
A. Some. Feel free to email me (kyleenoelleblog[at]gmail[dot]com) with what you are looking for and we can discuss rates and availability.

Q. What kind of camera do you use?
A. I have some lame Canon PowerShot or my iphone. Nothing fancy.

Q. What do you use to edit your photos?
A.  Mostly I use Photoshop or Instagram.

Q. How do you make your collages?
A. Picasa, Photoshop, or Polyvore.

Now ask away! xo

3. A paid vacation? Anywhere outside of Europe! I would love to make a roadtrip in the USA, or go to surf in Bali!

Sini said...

Oh my question was that, as you have such a cool style, could you give tips and advice how to find own style? :)

Shade of Whim said...

I am so glad I came by your blog today!! I'm your latest follower ;)

1. I'm a blogger (http://shadeofwhim.blogspot.com)

2. There are so many. I often visit coco and vera and design files. To be honest, I have a huge list of blogs I'm following and each of them give me something so different!

3. I would go to Greece and Cyprus. My partner and I have been talking about going back to visit family (most of, I haven't yet met).

Question for you:
How did you manage to get this number of followers?? I'm not that new to blogging but I'm now just trying to take it a little more seriously - and increase a following. My blog is about general/lifestyle and inspirational little things from design, fashion and food... I sometimes wonder how I have the 54 followers i do.... I can't imagine 500!! That'd be a great feeling! :)

CONGRATS on the following and I'm looking forward to your next post. Maria x

Congratulations on 500! That's an epic milestone :D

1. I am a blogger, who is still finding my ground between hipster iphone photos and creative writing :P thewildestofdreams.blogspot.com - come visit! :)

2. I read so many blogs!! adesertfete.blogspot.com was the first blog I got hooked on. I have no idea how I found it, but Jamie just seems like such a rad person. I also really enjoy reading daringcoco.blogspot.com and bleubird vintage :)

3. I'd love to go back to India, but that wouldn't be too costly so I'm thinking the US. Ever since I read On The Road I've wanted to road trip it across the States :D but it's so expensive getting there from Australia.

Now I wanna know where you'd go on an all expenses-paid trip?? Is that a cheat question? :P

Congratulations again! You're blog is quickly becoming one of my favourites (even more so now that I know you don't use an SLR, like me) :P
