Featured Blogger Friday-Me!

Well, the featured blogger I had planned for this Friday wasn't able to complete the questions in time(which is perfectly fine-I understand the circumstances!) and I didn't have time to send out another request, so I decided I would share a little bit about myself and my blog!

But before I do that, if anyone wants to be a featured blogger, let me know by going Here! I would be happy to send you the information :D

So without further adieu, here is the feature:

Q. What's your name and your blog? What other information would you like to share?

My name is Kayla(as if you didn't know!) and my blog is The Eclectic Element. A little bit about myself: I'm 19 years young(a very useless age), I'm unemployed and not in school(no, not because I'm a bum), and I have been sick for the past 6 years and counting(which is why I'm unemployed and not in school).

Q. Why did you choose that name for your blog?

That's a funny story. I'm an insomniac, so one night I stayed up all night(and I do mean ALL night) writing random words on a piece of paper and pairing them together. I wanted something that both described me and the business I was looking to put together and when I paired The Eclectic Element together, it was like a light went on in my head and I said to an empty room, "That's it!"

Q. Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because I literally had 24 hours out of 24 hours free to do anything and I usually spent it being bored. Finally, I decided to open my business on Etsy and soon after that, came into blogging!

Q. What kind of stuff do you cover with your blog? Is there a specific genre you write about or is the sky the limit?

I started with featuring different artists from Etsy and now I have expanded to featuring companies, as well as individual artists and bloggers, weekly fun memes, giveaways, product reviews and life in general. Just as my name states, I try to cover everything!

Q. Name one thing that you love about your blogging job.

I love meeting all the different and wonderful people that are out there. They are truly beautiful, each and every one of them.

Q. Name one thing your not so fond of about your blogging job.

It's a little stressful because I want so much to be a success, I push myself to get things done(I know, it's not THAT big of deal, but for me, this is my life).

Q. What's one random fun fact about you?

I love reading self help books(that tells you a lot about me, doesn't it?).

Q. Inspiration comes in many forms for different people. What inspires you?

Life inspires me. Everything around me inspires me. Being sick has put me in a different perspective then everyone else and that's inspiring.

Q. Any advice for other bloggers?

Hm. That is a tough one. I would have to say if you want something, work towards it. Nothing is easily attainable-you have to fight and work extremely hard for what you want no matter what it is. Don't doubt yourself-your as good as anyone else!

Q. Where else can we find you(Etsy shop, other blog, twitter, facebook, etc)?

You can find me in my Etsy Stores:

The Eclectic Element: Handmade
The Eclectic Element: Vintage

(Stay tuned for my Vintage shop launch party!)
