Happy Saturday everyone!! I hope everyone’s week has been good–mine has been pretty sad BUT I am thrilled to be writing today’s post and all the exciting things that we have planned!
Since I started joining some blogger groups on Facebook, a few bloggers have really stood out to me, Ashley Gabrielle being one of them. I love her videos and also just how natural and “real” she is.
Today’s post is the first of many that you will see Ashley and I teaming up together (#LASH)! If you don’t already know who Ashley is, she blogs over at Ashley Gabrielle and blogs about fitness, food, and seeing the world. Ashley and I both answered several questions about each other (you can find my interview on her site).
Here is what she had to say:
1. What is your name, age, blog name, genre, where do you live, anything else about yourself?
My name is Ashley. Gabrielle is my middle name. I write for my self titled blog over at ashleygabrielle.com. I am a lifestyle blogger that focuses on writing about fitness, healthy living, adventure, travel and just anything going on in my life I think others can relate to. I am 23 years old. I live in Flagstaff, AZ with my boyfriend Camron and our Golden Retriever Reeve.
2. What’s your reason for starting your blog?
I started this blog because I have always had a passion for writing. I wanted to use it as a way to connect and share my other passions with others.
3. How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging since high school, so maybe 7 years. I started Fitness, Food and Seeing the World two years ago and then on August 1st of 2014 I decided to get more serious with blogging. I bought my own URL. So now my blog is titled Ashley Gabrielle but I kept my headline as Fitness, Food and Seeing the World.
4. How do you focus or get motivated to write and put up blog posts?
To focus on blogging I put on music and write out a list of everything I need to do. Then I try to tackle the most important things first. I use a notebook for brainstorming and keeping to do lists. I also use a planner to plan out my day and posts.
5. Favorite animal, color, food, shoes?
Elephant, emerald Green, Thai food (Pad Thai noodles with tofu and no egg), orange and dark gray Nikes.
6. What do you do in your free time? (besides blogging if you do that during free time)
Netflix, write for myself, try a new recipe or try to create my own, hang out with friends or family, shop online, hiking, and I like working out but since I do that daily maybe that isn’t considered a free-time activity.
7. Short term goals you have for yourself?
In no particular order…Finish school and get my B.A. in English, get into a good graduate school for marketing, get my personal training certification, put on more muscle, get a job I love, make a good income from blogging and expand my business, live somewhere awesome, go on vacation in 2015, go on a road trip, visit brother in Wyoming, go to Seattle and visit my friend Kyle in Denver.
8. Favorite place to go to relax?
I like to relax in quiet settings usually so, in nature, bookstores, coffee shops, my bedroom.
Alright lovelies, I hope you enjoyed getting to know Ashley! Like I said, we have some great stuff planned so be on the look out for The LASH Project! #LASH
