Bloggers Uncensored: with Tracy Abelseth
Welcome to this weeks Bloggers Uncensored! This is my latest and favourite blog series that I've created. This series is an opportunity to read your favourite bloggers' honest and uncensored opinions on real life topics. This weeks blogger is Tracy Abelseth.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I'm a small town bookworm. I recently got married on September 1st. If I'm not stuck in a book, writing, or spending time with my husband someone should probably come looking for me!
Why do you write?
I found my joy in writing as a way to relieve everyday stress. It helps me escape.
Why did you start blogging?
Honestly it appealed to me as a way of sharing whatever I wanted to say to the world. It's hard to even put into words besides the fact it was a calling for me.
What do you love about the blogging world/community?
The blogging community is so welcoming! If your new to something there's always another blogger to point you in the right direction. Not to mention I've actually made a really close friend through blogging!
What do you hate about the blogging world/community?
One specific thing. The follow-unfollow trend to up your followers count. It's unfair in so many ways. I pride myself in helping every blogger I find.
In your opinion, who are the most underrated bloggers?
The small bloggers like myself. It's so hard for us to climb up there because unless you have a huge following, no one is interested as easily. We aren't really looked at for our content alone.
What are some hard truths you have learnt about life?
Family isn't always what you think. Hard fact.
What does freedom mean to you?
Freedom is being able to say what you want without judgement.
What are your thoughts on mental health and how it's portrayed in today's society?
Mental health is a very serious matter that I think should be recognised. However I do think it's being almost over rated today. I'm glad it's being noticed but not every single thing you do is a mental health issue.
What are your thoughts on feminism and how it's portrayed in today's society?
Honestly I'm pleased with how it's being portrayed. I don't really have anything particular to say on it.
What are your thoughts on 'Love is Love' and how it's portrayed in today's society?
Literally what it says, love is love. No matter what colour, gender, or species you are you should be allowed to love whomever you please!
What advice would you give to someone who is fighting a mental illness?
There is help, and honestly you're not alone. Keep fighting.
What advice would you give to someone who is being bullied or harassed?
Don't believe everything you hear. You do matter. If someone doesn't like it, that's not your problem, it's theirs.
If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?
What else do you feel strongly about?
You covered all of my thoughts there!
Let's end this with some fun 'This or That' questions:
Love or money?
Work hard or play hard?
Cups in the cupboard: right side up or upside down?
Chocolate or sex?
Plan everything or wing it?
Happiness or money?
