The Person Behind The Computer #3- GirlRadio

Hello everyone! Today we have a lovely interview from GirlRadio! Take it away interviewer me!


TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF
 


I’m GirlRadio from Nerd Glasses and Wanderlust. I have an obsession with elephants (they’re irresistible), roller coasters, and washi tape. I’m from California and ten years old (although I’m entering the sixth grade) and no, I did not skip a grade, I was just born a few days before the cutoff date.

WHAT'S YOUR BLOGGING STORY?

I’ve been blogging for (almost!) two years, since September 27, 2013. I actually don’t have one of those super-deep blogging stories (i.e. my mom was dying of cancer and I needed a place to express my thoughts, or I fell into depression and ran away and all I had was my computer so I started a blog to share my story). I just was on a whim, having some fun, and decided to start a blog. I did not know what I was getting myself into when I hit that “Create Blog” button. I know. It’s not all that touching.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FANDOMS?
 
Okay, first of all, I die a little inside each time anyone mentions Harry Potter, because I already finished all the books and I just wish the series was endless. I’m also kind of (but not really) into the Percy Jackson series. I know, forgive me somehow, but I’m not much of a fangirl. (I’m completely fine if you stop reading right there because you’re too appalled.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT BLOGGING?
 
All of you lovely humans, of course! I think we have a little tween/teen girl community going on, if you know what I mean. In the comments everyone just spreads so much love to each other, and we all have each other’s back – I just think that’s so awesome. Keep being amazing, everyone!
 
 
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR HOBBIES?
 
I have a die-hard passion for performing, and I’m also really into writing, coding, and blogging (of course), and I have this talent for blurting out random facts at all the wrong times. I don’t know why, but once my older sister was literally like one of those cartoon characters with smoke coming out of her head because she was so angry, and I just felt the need to tell her that California is more populous than Canada. I don’t know what goes through my head sometimes.


WHAT'S THE STORY BEHIND YOUR BLOG NAME?
 
I’m somewhat a nerd in the sense that I do well in school (but I’m not socially awkward), I wear glasses, I love to travel. It just all came together. There’s nothing in particular that inspired my blog name. I’ve been through four by now.
 
WHO ARE YOUR INSPIRATIONS AND WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE BLOGGERS?
 
My writing inspiration? J.K. Rowling. Cliché, but, come on. Favorite bloggers? Um, Morning, Noor, Cassie, Oakstar, Amelie, Jolly Girl, the whole Blogs for Kids group, and Edie, to name a few.

WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A FRIEND?
 
When looking for a friend, I look for someone who’s incredibly supportive and doesn’t have a reputation for spreading rumors. Bonus points if you have a good sense of humor and at least one common interest.
 
GIVE SOME ADVICE TO NEW BLOGGERS
 
Just a while back I got stuck in a phase where I felt so terrible about not having too many followers. I kept comparing myself to bloggers who were older and had more blogging experience. But I realized that I blog for me, because I want to put myself out there, and that fame doesn’t drive me. So do me a favor and don’t ever get in a similar situation. I hope that the numbers don’t define you as a blogger.
Another bit of advice is to write with personality. Don’t try to be like another blogger; just be you, and I’m sure people will appreciate your posts. Don’t bite back your charming sense of humor, or your tendency to use big words, just because you feel like it will make your posts less appealing.

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION: CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA?


Oh my gosh, Noor, you totally stumped me! Um, this answer took a lot of thought and I’m not so confident about it, but, uh, vanilla? Maybe? Okay, yeah, I’ll just go with that.
