You and your Blog:

All About Zayda and Falling into Light

Can you tell us a little about yourself? -
 I'm a 24 year-old aspiring photographer born in the beautiful city of Cartagena, Colombia. I moved to the US  two years ago and I live in Southern Georgia with my wonderful husband and my lovely dog. I work full time in a Family Photo Studio and when I'm not there, you can find me with a camera in my hands taking pictures of everything, crafting, watching movies, listening to music, reading and playing with my dog.

When did you start blogging? 
 How did you get into blogging and why? - I started blogging not too long ago, it's only been 3 months actually! I got into it because of my friend Liliana from Just Because. We got to talking and she told me how cool the blogging world was and how many people you get to meet to I decided to start my own little blog.

What is your blog about and why should people read it? -
 My blog is pretty much about myself and what I love. It's about my love for Photography and my addiction to it. It's about music, silly things and everyday life. I wouldn't say it has a set theme because I LOVE to ramble about whatever comes to my mind at the time, but Photography does take a huge chunk of it (including its name) because it is my passion. My blog is my little own space that I'm more than happy to share with whoever wants to read it!

What would you say inspires the content of your posts?  
 Love. Art in all of its forms, Dreams and people who are dreamers like me, and the fact that beauty can be found in the most simple aspects of everyday life. And... probably some stores that sell really really cute stuff.

Everyone has a favorite/least favorite post. Name yours and why?
Include a link to each if you like.

Where do you see yourself blogging wise in the next year? 

 Honestly, I have no idea. I joined for the fun of it and I would love for it to continue that way. I hope that a year from now I'm still having as much fun with this as I do now. Maybe get the blog a little more out there so people can see what I do, but other than that I just see myself enjoying it and getting to know more and more wonderful people every day.

Sweet Little Chelsea

Which one plugin would you suggest all bloggers to have?  

I have tried to keep my blog as simple as possible (Key Word: Tried, it's not as easy as I thought.) But my favorite little gadget is probably the Labels, that way your readers can choose a specific topic they want to see posts about and it is easier for them to find a post if they are looking for it.

Any specific tips you have for fellow bloggers?  

I know it's cliché, but don't give up. That's the best advice I can give you right now that I haven't had a lot of experience in the blogging world. Get back to me in a couple of years, I'll probably have something better to say :)

When you write for your blog do you stock pile posts, why or why not? 

 I do but they are not really big piles. I work full time and my days off are Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so I write the posts for the upcoming week on these two days. It's easier that way and helps me keep my blog organized on a weekly schedule.

How did you find Calamity Kate's Kitchen?  

It was probably the way I find most of the stuff I read, blog hopping. I might have seen CKK's button somewhere and it got my attention and here I am :)
