HI, MY NAME IS… Sarah Fournier
MY TWITTER HANDLE IS… @caffandconquer
MY BLOG URL IS… https://caffeineandconquer.com
I’M FROM….Ottawa, Canada
ASIDE FROM BLOGGING, I ENJOY…Reading, painting, watching tv, tourism
I’M CURRENTLY WATCHING…Colony on Netflix
I’M CURRENTLY READING…A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin and 365 Days of Happiness by Jacqueline Pirtle
I GOT STARTED BLOGGING IN…February 2018, though I had many smaller personal blogs growing up that I never stuck with.
MY BLOGGING PROCESS INCLUDES…I publish one new post a week, on Thursdays. Each month I sit down and figure out what I’m going to write about that month and what theme I want to follow. If I have any sponsored posts I need to write sometimes those take precedence.
I like planning ahead so I have time to think and mull over the topics in my head. I find I can write better if I have time to process it before writing.
I then write one blog post a week. I write a draft on Tuesday, which is usually just writing without paying attention to formatting, spelling or grammar. On Wednesday I will proofread, format, add images and design my pin. Thursday it gets posted at 4pm and then I promote it across all my social media channels.
I BLOG ABOUT…Personal growth and blogging tips
I MOSTLY BLOG AT…I either work in my bedroom where my desk is or at a coffee shop between the hours of 11am-6pm
(Your preferred time of day and or place)
MY GREATEST BLOGGING ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR IS…Not completely blogging related but because I became really good at promoting my own blog on Pinterest, I decided to take on clients to manage their Pinterest accounts as well. In this way, I have monetized my blog and it’s my greatest achievement so far.
WHEN I’M BLOGGING I LISTEN TO…When I’m writing I don’t listen to anything. It’s too distracting and I can’t process my thoughts. However, when I’m doing the formatting, graphic design and social media promotion I listen to podcasts. My favorite right now are Detail Therapy, The Game Changer Podcast, and Being Boss.
MY FAVOURITE SNACK/DRINK WHILE BLOGGING IS…Coffee or carbonated water with a spritz of lemon juice. I don’t tend to snack while I work.
IF I HAD A BLOGGING SUPERPOWER, IT WOULD BE…The ability to get more done in a day while maintaining the same level of energy I wake up with.
IF I COULD INTERVIEW ANYONE ON MY BLOG, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE…Amy Landino
IF I COULD RECORD A VLOG WITH SOMEONE FAMOUS IT WOULD BE…Rachel Hollis
OTHER BLOGS I GET INSPIRATION FROM ARE…Believe it or not, I’m less of a blog reader than a Youtube viewer. So my favourite channels I get inspiration from are AmyTV, Erin May Henry, Renee Amberg, and Muchelleb.
I LOVE BLOGGING BECAUSE…I need a creative outlet in my life and blogging has filled that need. It’s also multiskilled so I get to learn so many skills which keeps me busy and happy. I’m a creative person and I see my blog as my baby.
