Praising bloggers for their amazing work is something that I think isn’t done enough in our community. We are always quick to promote our own blogs and try to get all the comments and views we can but sometimes we can forget that all our other blogger friends have the same goals and ambitions, even if they’re in different forms! That is why I started the Blogger Spotlight. I began this series on Blogs for Days and I want to continue it on Life of Kimberly.
The first blogger to be featured on LOK is Stew from “The Guy With The Owl Tattoo“. He is a blogger that has supported me from day one and we always keep in contact on Twitter. He’s a great guy with an awesome blog! I love that he posts as if he’s just communicating with his friends. I feel like I really know him when I read his blog and that’s amazing blog quality, in my opinion. So, without further ado, here’s my interview with Stew!
1. What made you go from being a podcaster to blogging?
I was in the middle of moving house and I really couldn’t dedicate enough time to the podcast I was currently on, I still have a Podcast Network that I am involved in and run but decided to give blogging a go as another avenue to still voice my opinions on bits and pieces. I will be going back to podcasting over the coming months but it will be something a bit different to the comic/geek style one I was on before.
I have lost count of how many tattoos I have now, I have one completed sleeve (bar a few touch up’s) which is just full of things I like and think look cool, I have an incomplete sleeve on the other arm which is bird themed, (its how I came up with the name for my blog as well) which I am trying to finish by the end of this year if I can. I have a few others dotted about on my legs and chest. Most of them don’t really have any meaning, apart from one of two of them, I have a tattoo of my parrot which I really like, and one of a tooth that I have so much trouble with I had to get it removed after spending a small fortune trying to save it. I also have a quote from Shawshank Redemption which is one of m favorite Books/Films, I have “Get busy living or get busy dying” which I think is quite cool.
I love all movies, it’s really hard to pick a specific genre as its all about what mood I’m in when I pick a movie to watch. I was born in the 80’s so I am very fond of the movies from that sort of era with Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Back to the Future films being some of my all-time favorites that I can just watch over and over again. That being said I watch all the new stuff that comes out when I get a chance and you can not beat sticking on a Disney film every now and the as well!
When I was younger I played a couple of Pop Punk bands at School, but since then all I really haven’t been involved with another band fully, Now I like to do is Jam with some friends of just sit in my drum room and play along to some of my favorite songs. I’m sure my neighbors love me.
Just do you! Don’t compare yourself to anyone else, we all start somewhere and come from different backgrounds so everyone’s audience/readership is different. There is no right why to blog so do what you like when you like, just enjoy it! The blogging community is nice, bunch of people for the most part so interact and you will make some friends in no time.
