500 Followers and Q&A


I can’t believe I am currently on 500 followers. That number seems crazy to me. I can honestly remember jumping up and down with excitement when I hit 50 and 100 followers so this seems totally surreal.

Thank you so much for everyone who has supported me from the start, Invisibly Me and Samanthamurdochblog deserve a big shout out for always communicating with me and helping me move forwards with my blog.

And to all you newbies over here at ellamaygarrett.com, I hope you like it! Pull up a chair and get a cuppa and have a nosey through some of my old posts, I would love to hear from you.

It seems to have become a small custom to do a Q&A post on your blog when you hit such a great achievement so I really want to do one too. Please feel free to leave any questions you want down below and I will answer them in an upcoming post. Travel, lifestyle, beauty, fashion, blogging, just plain weird – I’m all for it!

Big thank you hugs all round

    Congratulations, Ella! I love your blog. I’m super curious and always want to know more about people so I would like to contribute with my own questions.
    1- Why do you thing you have so many people? How did YOU get them? What so special about YOU? (I know this, because I follow you but would like to hear your perspective!)
    2- What’s your favorite part about blogging? What do you love about it?
    3- What is next? What are your blogging goals? And dreams?
    That’s it. Keep up the good work 🙂

    Wow – huge congrats! Thank you for the shout out too; it’s been brilliant seeing how your blog has come along in time as we seemed to start out at a similar point.

    I really like Cheila’s questions for the Q&A. I guess I’d like to know a bit more about your hopes for after University – what are your job ambitions, and where would you like to live if you were to leave York? You’re smiling more in photographs which is great to see, so what’s your next personal goal of a similar nature? What’s your biggest regret in life?

    And the most important question – what are you doing this weekend to celebrate your huge achievement with this blog? 😀

    Congrats, Ella! And here are my questions:
    1. What advises can you give to someone who’s starting a blog?
    2. What would you say to someone who wants to give up (in blogging or anywhere) already?
    3. What is your favourite motivation quote?

    Congrats again!

    Congratulations on 500! I just found your blog within the past two weeks but I love it so much, your posts are super interesting to read and the layout is very aesthetically pleasing. I have a question for your Q&A: If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go, who would you bring with you, and what would be the first thing you did?

    • March 12, 2017 / 10:55 am

    Congratulations EllA*! My questions are:
    – where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
    – if you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would that book be?
    – what is your perfect pizza?

  10. March 12, 2017 / 7:41 am

    Congratulations! 500 is such a huge achievement, I remember thinking the same when I hit that amount!

    My questions
    1) Since you started blogging, have you cleared up any misconceptions you had before you started?

    2) What do you love most about writing a blog?
