Blog Tour Award

I was nominated by Claire to do this Blog Tour Award Tag: You should definitely check out her and her blog – it’s really worth a read! The tag is all about telling others about the creative process that you go through.

The Award Rules:

  • Pass the tour on to at least four other bloggers.
  • Give your nominees the rules and specify the Monday in which they should post their nomination answers.
  • Answer the four questions about your creative processes, which allows other bloggers and visitors to understand what inspires you to do what you do.
  • Compose this one-time post on a specific Monday (date TBC by your nominator).

Questions:

1. How does your work differ from others in your genre?

I’m not sure that it does. I mean, beauty-blogs are not very unique in the blogging world. I do try to vary my content so that you can’t anticipate my next post, otherwise I think it would get boring to read if it was just the same content over and over again. That is why I also throw in some post regarding other aspects of my life – to keep it fresh. Also, I think it is important to be honest in your reviews. That way other people will find you more reliable and come back for your other reviews.

2. How does your writing/creative process work?

If I want to write about lifestyle or movies or music or whatever the inspiration usually comes in my everyday life. Posts like that are often personal, so it’s natural to have the inspiration come to you as you go about your day. If I want to write about beauty, the content is usually determined by which products I’ve bought or tested out. Overall, I spend a lot of time in the blogging world, on YouTube, Pinterest etc. and I find that I often get my ideas through there.

3. Why do you write or create what you do?

To show people. A lot of my content, at least when I first started out, is nail art related and there are only so many times that my boyfriend can find it interesting to see my new creations, so it is nice to have an outlet where people express their opinion about what I’ve come up with. I’ve recently noticed that there is a much bigger interest in my beauty related posts than in anything else I write about, which is great since my the majority of my posts are about that, but the blog is still also an outlet to me, a place where I share my thoughts and though it’s a little demotivating not to have your posts received as positively as you’d hoped, I still want the blog to show other aspects of my personality.

4. What are you working on at the moment?

I have a collab coming up in July that I’m preparing for now because once I start working I won’t have that much time or energy. Apart from that I don’t really have anything “cooking”. I usually just write about what I feel like on a particular day. That is also why I don’t want to have a posting schedule – some weeks I have tons of ideas for posts and others I can hardly think of one, and I think, for me, it would be too forced if I had to produce an amount of posts each week.

Nominations:

  1. Prettykool
  2. Woodennails
  3. Sayhellotogorgeous
  4. ilovemymani

Your deadline will be next monday 29th June. Please tag me in your posts – I’d love to read your answers! Have fun!

My own domain

After considering it for a long time, I decided to take the step and register my own domain. This means that my blog will from here on out be found at

http://www.bottledindemark.com

As of right now, if you click onto my old address, it will refer you to the new one, but I do not know how long that will last, so if you’re following me through the website itself, please note the change.

If you are currently following me via WordPress or Email, this will not effect you in any way – your subscription is still valid.

Changing my URL

For quite some time now, I have considered changing the name of my blog. When I first started the blog I thought the name was quite clever actually, but ever since then I have slowly grown to resent it. I found that people had a hard time spelling it and that’s not what you want when writing a blog – you want people to be able to find you easily. That is why I have decided to change it.

All of my future post will be found at

http://www.bottledindenmark.wordpress.com

All of my previous content will still be on the site, and I hope to see you all there!

2014 in review

2014 is coming to an end. This is my first year as a blogger, and I just want to thank all of you so much for reading my things! It means so much to me! In the course of just a few months I’ve gotten almost 1000 views, almost 600 visitors and 70 followers!

I wanted to share a list of my top posts:

  1. 20 Random questions – tag  –  I’m surprised so many of you want to read random stuff about me lol
  2. No. 2: And Your Bird Can Sing (Anthology version) – The Beatles – YAY, other Beatles fans out there!
  3. Sally Hansen – Rule of Plum swatch – I understand, it is SOOO pretty
  4. 31 Day Nail Polish Challenge: Day 6: Violet Nails – For some reason this was incredibly popular considering it is one of the simpler challenge days
  5. 31 day nail polish challenge: Day 14: Flowers – Thank you, Robin Moses for inspiring my manicure 😉

Here are some of the countries where I have the most readers:

  1. United States – No wonder I always wake up to a lot of views (because of the time difference)
  2. Denmark – Not so weird, maybe some of my real-life friends contributed?
  3. United Kingdom

Countries I didn’t expect to get views from:

  1. Pakistan
  2. Lithuania
  3. Saudi Arabia

Thank you all so much for visiting my blog in 2014! I hope to see and hear from you again in 2015!

Happy New Year!

Love, Nanna

Radio silence

FINALLY!

Today we finally got internet in our new apartment. Luckily I have a smart phone so I could check all the necessities, but man it is so nice having real WiFi again!

The lack of internet also explains this silence that has been going on on the blog for a few days now – I didn’t have the time or patience to blog from my phone, but hopefully now I’ll find time within all of my exams to catch up on it all.

Love, Nanna

Song of that day series

Hello!

Music plays a big role in my life – I’ve sung in choir for 12 years, played the piano for 10 years , the marimba for 2 years and I studied music in gymnasium. In addition to that I rarely leave the house without my iPod and when I need to really relax I just lay on my bed and listen to music. I like to lose myself in the music, the lyrics, the story.

In addition to my nail polish challenge, which is bound to end at some point, I am considering creating a new series of blog posts. Regularly I would create a blog post telling you about the song of that day  – a song I have gotten in to lately or have rediscovered or a song I find fascinating for some reason. It is not going to be EVERY day, but the song of THAT day – the day when I feel like sharing a song with you.

What do you think about that idea?

Love, Nanna
