This week's interview features Jordan from J.S. Roth (be sure to check out her amazing site). It's super awesome and Jordan is probably the coolest person ever, so I will not detain you any longer...enjoy...
(The above picture is a bit off since Jordan recently changed her blog...whoops.)
~When did you first start blogging?
I started blogging the summer five years ago, back when I was still a youngin'.
~What inspired you to start blogging?
When I was little, I was very big in to story telling (as I still am). Journals and journals and journals were filled with my nonsensical musings, and then one day, I was online (I'm not really sure why now), and I came across a blog where posts and posts and posts were filled with someone else's musings. The rest is a fairly self-explanatory: I asked my parents if I could have a blog, they said yes, and many years later- here we are.
~What's the story/inspiration behind your blog name?
I guess ya'll will be the firsts to know that I'm actually going to change my blog, and its URL, to my name: jordanskyroth. ;)
~When you first started blogging, what did you mainly blog about?
When I first started blogging I did- rather awful -craft tutorials; I then moved to photo stories because my crafts were not that good.
~What are some of your favorite blogs to follow/read?
My favorites are Cally Declan's blog ( wordspassingyouby.blogspot.com ); Adelaide's blog (downbythewillows.blogspot.com ); and, of course, this beauty.
~What inspires you most in writing?
Life. When I go out I'm always watching those around me. I get inspiration from the way a girl's hair blows in the wind, the way a boy will glance down at his feet before talking, etc.
~What are your favorite things to take pictures of?
I like taking photos of people mostly. However, lately I've been dabbling in taking nature photos (mostly of flowers), and that has been a lot of fun.
~If you had to choose just one for the rest of your life: writing or photography?
Well, at the moment I am in college ( I graduated two years early ), and given all the papers I have to write (or else I will fail): writing. If you mean, though, one or the other as a medium of fun... the answer would still likely be writing.
~What are three words you would use to describe your blog?
I honestly have no idea ;)
And for some random ones...
~Ice cream or cupcakes?
cupcakes are the window to my soul. ;)
~What are your three favorite colors?
I like nature-y colors: forest green, burnt orange, maroon.
~If you could be any animal, which would you want to be?
A wolf. ( I have a thing for wolves )
Thank you so much Jordan!
Have a great day.
