Blog Post Tuesday- Ada

Morning beauties.
Happy Tuesday! After a bit of a break last week I'm back with another blog chat Tuesday!!!

Today I'm chatting with the beautiful Ada from Adatude. Not only is she a lovely blog friend but I recently won a contest she ran and got the most amazing beauty goodies (some of which I'm going to review realllyyy soon). Also spooky coincidence we were in Lexington at the same time in June!!

So here we go....

1. Can you tell me a bit about yourself? 

People call me Ada for short. I was born in Bosnia, moved to the US during the genocide in the '90s, lived in Philly for a few years, grew up in L.A. and now live in Tucson. This is my life story in basically 10 seconds. I love hiking, running, and walking (although not so much in 110 degree weather). 

2. Can you tell me a little about your blog? (i.e. whats it about, how did it get started etc?)

I started this blog as a school project to document my thoughts and experiences with electronic dance music and different electronic events I attended. Since then, it has evolved into a lifestyle and beauty blog which includes my travels, beauty, books, and so on. I started the blog back in January of 2013 so I've been blogging for about a year and a half now!

3. What's your favourite thing about blogging?

My favorite thing about blogging is visually sharing my experience with my readers. Before I would have to tell every friend, acquaintance, and coworker the same story over and over when they asked how a trip was or how I did my make-up on any particular day. Now I find people asking me specifics AFTER they have read my posts. I love having the ability to share so much detail about wonderful experiences and different product recommendations via a single URL on the Internet. It helps me stay in touch and share my opinion quickly.

4. What's your least favourite thing?

My least favourite thing is the Google Blogger app. I try to upload images from my phone via the app and it takes 500 years to upload. Then if I open the desktop version of Blogger, the app or desktop version will override the other because they're not 100% synced.

5. If you could write any other type of blog what would it be?

I would write a blog dedicated to food & wine. I absolutely love food & wine so I think I would enjoy trying tons of both and sharing my experiences (my hips confess my love for food & wine as well). I do throw in mentions of both in my current blog, but nothing to the point where I would tell anyone how to pair a specific type of fish with a particular wine. 

6. Do you have any blogs that you'd recommend?

I love The Londoner ( Rosie is actually one of my main inspirations for turning my blog from an electronic dance music specific theme to a lifestyle/beauty corner. I also adore Essie Button ( as a specific beauty blogger.

7. What three things would you say to wannabe bloggers?

1) Do it because you want to and it makes you happy (NOT because you have to write a post to get a commission check of some sort, etc.)

 2) Make sure to proofread all of your posts because my biggest pet peeve is when I see a BEAUTIFUL blog with typos everywhere. It just doesn't show the penmanship or writing skills so anything you are writing is almost void due to the fact that spelling makes you seem less credible to readers.

3) Don't start blogging thinking you're going to be successful and rich in a month. You're not. Your readership will take some time to build (unless you're Shay Mitchell). I've just heard a lot of bloggers start their blog with the sole goal in mind to make money right off the bat; it's not plausible. Ease yourself into it!

8. Anything else you'd like to add. 

 Overall, I think blogging is such a fun past time and I love doing it (even after a long day at my actual job). It's your piece of the internet so share your adventures and get people excited about what you have to say!

Thank you so much, Ada!! I'd definitely read a blog about food and wine- in fact I kind of want to co-blog that! I'm so in agreement about the frustrations of the blogger app!!
