How are you doing? Today I have another post in my behind the blog series featuring Deandra. Deandra otherwise known as Black Princess Diaries is a blogger who was inspired by the Princess Diaries and added a twist as a black woman. Her blog focuses on expressing herself. As normal my questions will be in pink and Deandra’s answers in black.
Question One- Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I wanted a place outside of Tumblr to get my poetry out there more, but I knew I wanted to write more than just poetry on my blog. Personally, I love giving advice to people and I also have thoughts on many different topics. I get to express how I feel and in return maybe even help others or at least show someone that they’re not alone if they feel they can relate.
Question Two- What has been your biggest struggle in life?
My biggest struggle in life has honestly just been my mind. I have many struggles and it al circles back to my mentality and mental health. It’s not the best, which causes me to struggle with many things that I wish to accomplish. I know one day I’ll defeat it and accomplish all the things. I’ve always wanted to one day. I just have to take it a step at a time.
Question Three- Name on thing you are grateful for
I’m so grateful to have such a supportive mother. She’s always been supportive no matter what and I know not everyone has that in their life. She’s even read some of my blog posts and have told me how proud she is of me. My mom has always been like my best friend and I’ll never take your relationship for granted.
Question Four- What is one aspect of your life you would like to share more on your blog?
I’d like to share more of what I do. I see people make blog posts all the time about how their experience going here and there and I get a little bit jealous. Problem is, I barely do anything. My life is pretty much boring 90% of the time. Who knows, maybe things will pick up and I can write all about it!
Question Five- How would you sum yourself up in 3 words?
Silly, Caring and Short.
