Bloggin' Ladies: SrslyLiz

Name+Age+Site/Blog: Hullo. My name is Liz & I'm a fancy nerd who writes over at srslyliz.com

What is something interesting about you? Most people don't realize I'm 100% Mexican and are even more surprised to find out I'm fluent in Spanish.

Why did you begin blogging? I started blogging in general as a way to express myself through writing. I've always loved journaling {I can't tell you how many embarrassing diaries I have from being a kid} and blogging gave me the opportunity to do just that in a community-based environment.

How long have you been blogging? I've been blogging for over 10 years, which is so crazy to think about. I started out on Teen Open Diary, spent a few years on Live Journal, ventured into Myspace and then finally to a self-hosted WordPress site when I started getting more into web & graphic design.

Who is your inspiration for writing? 
I'm not usually inspired by a specific person but rather by music, other bloggers/writers, specific events in my life, etc. 

Where do you get your ideas? My best ideas all come from the same place--the shower! Srsly. It's my favourite place to think.

Do you have any advice that you want to share with fellow lady bloggers? My advice to bloggers in general is to just be yourself. This can be tricky in The Blogosphere specifically because of similar interests but I personally appreciate people who put their own spin on things instead of just being more or less the same. Be yourself and own it. It will shine through in your writing/blog.

What is one thing you are looking forward to most in your future (blog or otherwise)? Since the decision my boyfriend and I made to move to Seattle this summer, it's all I can think about! We are so very excited to explore a new city together and spread our wings a bit.

[Thanks, Liz! <3]
