Congratulations, Ida! How did you react when you got the news about you being the winner of this years #Nouw30DayChallenge?
Thank you so much! I was driving home from a meeting when I got the call from Line, that told me that I was the winner of the challenge. I tried really hard to control myself since I was behind the wheel, but I had to stop and let the excitement kick in. I was so shaky, and I am so thankful that my blog got chosen from so many amazing bloggers.
Blogging every day for thirty days is definitely a challenge! How did you find the inspiration to upload new posts every single day?
What inspired me throughout this periode was definitely my readers. I definitely did not want to let them down since I had told them that I was in the challenge and told them that I was going to upload new posts every day for thirty days. I realized that I got more and more readers, something that motivated me to keep going. After a while it became a part of my daily routine.
Do you have any specific posts that got more attention during the challenge?
The posts that got the most attention were my personal posts that I wrote, among them "five things you didn't know about me". I have never been very personal on my blog before, but I challenged myself to be more open during the #Nouw30DayChallenge. I recieved great feedback on my personal posts, something that I really appreciate.
You have won an inspirational trip to Paris. What do you look forward to doing while you are there?
Paris is my favorite city, and I cannot wait to explore the city even more. This time I want to do my research on restaurants, and find those food-experiences that you just do not forget. I want to visit the amazing Louvre, eat my favorite cake "Ispahan" at Ladurée, and show the best of Paris to the person that I take with me. French breakfast at a tiny café, enjoy the view from Sacré-Cæur, visit iconic stores, experience a concert at Notre-Dame and late nights from bar to bar are some of the things that I look forward to doing in Paris.
Lastly, what are your plans for your blog going forward?
I want to keep the good routines I have gotten in to, and my goal going forward is to update my blog at least 3-4 times a week with quality content. I will be sharing personal tips, from my best beautyproducts to my favorite apps that I keep on my phone. And of course I want to share lots of my travels and experiences.
