Sunday Social

I decided to link up with Ashley and Neely this week for Sunday Social, this weeks topic is blogging, which obviously I am a fan of! And I thought it would be a great time to shout out to all my new followers! 

Hey guys! You have no idea how excited I am! Thanks so much for all your sweet comments and thoughts x


1. What is the name of your blog and how did you come up with it??
Sinead in the Sun
I used to blog under the name Life As I Know It... but I knew it was very generic and wasn't "me" enough. So I changed to Sinead in the Sun, very me (obviously, cause its my name) and it has the vibe I want for my blog, happy and hopeful and warm!

2. What do you love the most about blogging??
I love the idea of keeping an online journal, something I can look back on a say "remember when..." but I also love the community, obviously not all my posts are a life scrapbook, some are for the connections with other bloggers. I love how sweet everyone is, how willing they are to help, and how many fantastic connections are formed other the internet!

3. What are your 2 favorite posts you've written?

4. What is something you'd want to tell someone just starting out in blog world?

Definitely fix the "no-reply blogger" issue! It makes me sad when I get an awesome comment, write an awesome reply, and it goes nowhere! And it will hinder your connections in the bloggy world. Also be sincere. Be you. No one wants to read a blog that almost the same as another blog, but less genuine. And we bloggers can tell!


To fix the annoying "no-reply" issue do this:
Click "edit Blogger profile"
Check "Show my email address"

5. Biggest blogging learning experience you've had?
I think blog design, I have always like design, but never really got into it this much! But now I'm designing pre-made blog designs every other week. I'm thinking of starting to sell them, but I'm not sure...

6. Give us 3 blogs we NEED to be following that you love. 
Ok I'm gonna have to do more than 3! I will split them into categories!

My IRL friends that are now brand new bloggers and are super fantastic:

Yellow Brick Road

Lauren @ Here I Am
Here I am 

Faith, trust & Pixie dust
p.s I designed their blog designs! go visit!

Bloggers that I get excited about when a new post pops up:

Every Day is a New Adventure
Becoming What I Always Was

Living In Yellow

Enjoy my darlings

I remember when you changed to "Sinead in the the Sun." Blog design is the one part of blogging I really haven't gotten into much. I love the writing and comments and the friendships...I like to see pretty blogs but I don't get excited about learning the design part, for some reason. Hey, we all have our strengths and weaknesses!
