Q: WHY DID YOU START A BLOG?
A: I started The Wild Hideaway with the hopes of having a place to archive my writings and photos and to further my commitment to that little hobby of mine. I also wanted a creative outlet to not only document all my goings on but to keep me writing. It is great to have somewhere to write where people might go to read from time to time.
Q: WHAT IS A LIFESTYLE BLOG?
A: A Lifestyle blog is not limited to one topic. Simply put, I love these types of blogs because there is no one single focus you must write about, I write about whatever the heck I feel like. A lifestyle blog really is about whatever comes to mind at the moment. I think that’s what makes them so interesting because you never know what you will read the next day. I like to refer to my blog as my open diary where I can record how exciting (or boring. whatever) my life is and also write about whatever I please!
Q: CAN I POST ONE OF YOUR PROJECTS ONTO MY BLOG?
A: Yes you may, but please note that you may only post one photo with a link to the original blog post. Please DO NOT re-post the entire content of any blog post on The Wild Hideaway without written permission. If you are a print publication wanting to use an images or if you have any questions about photo/content usage please contact Shannon here.
Q: DO YOU MAKE MONEY FROM YOUR BLOG?
A: I consider myself very fortunate, as what started as a hobby has now become a “job” (although I don’t think I’ll ever see it as one!). This blog accepts sidebar advertising and sponsored posts. If I’m working with a brand then I’ll say so in the post, so you’ll know if it’s sponsored. While I do make money from some of my blog posts, I would never, ever write something I didn’t truly believe.
I accept advertisements from both small and large businesses, bloggers and anything that might be relevant to my readers interests. I consider all inquiries but will ultimately only run ads that I feel fit with the overall theme of Wild Hideaway. For more information please contact me here.
Q: I WANT TO GET IN TOUCH REGARDING PR/ADVERTISING, HOW DO I GO ABOUT THIS?
A: Awesome! please see my PR/Advertising page here for more information.
Q: WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE NOT TAKING PHOTOS AND BLOGGING?
A: Work work and work, write, go on adventures with my partner, empty the dishwasher, read, retrieve the mail, try on pretty outfits, watch movies, eat, fold laundry, catch up with my sisters, work on projects, write letters and listen to music.
Q: DO YOU READ OTHER BLOGS?
A: I sure do! I click around though blogs all the time. I also follow links in comments and comment back as much as I possibly can. I absolutely love all my beautiful readers and have met some amazing people through the blogging community!
Q: WHAT IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
A: Great – I love questions! All you need to do is hit the little contact tab on the top of the page, email me and you’re good to go!
