The Sunshine Blogger Quiz – Blogger Tag
I’m getting into these blogger tags. They’re a great way of getting to know other bloggers and also sharing stuff about myself with you in a quick and informal way. G and I also spent the evening answering a load of different tags over a few vodkas the other night. It was great fun and a good way to hear new stories about one another. I’ve been tagged in a few and I’m waiting to film one of them for my brand new vlogging channel. Today, I am doing the Sunshine Blogger Quiz. I was tagged by Nadine from Then I Became Mum – click the link to read her own questions and answers and browse through her blogs while you’re there too.
Let’s jump straight in and answer my 10 questions.
What is the meaning behind your blog name?
Reclusive Fox was inspired by my past and living with a social disorder for the large majority of my life. Anxiety and agoraphobia made me a recluse and I felt Reclusive was a more pleasant way of saying ‘I hate going out and seeing people’. Fox comes from the habits of a Fox – they come alive at night – which is what I do as I’m a natural night owl. Thinking about it, I could have called it Reclusive Owl.
Why did you start blogging?
I’ve blogged in different forms for many years. Before blogging came along I wrote diaries and I have loads of them hidden up in the loft away from prying eyes. Writing is something in life I’ve always enjoyed but blogging to the public is simply a great way of sharing thoughts and feelings that could be of interest to people living in similar boats. Reclusive Fox was initially started as I was working on ways of managing my mental health issues and I wanted to help others and push myself. It’s since developed more into a gaming blog simply because that’s one of my main passions in life.
What’s your happiest memory?
Ugh, what a question! I have many happy memories and I also have many memories that have gone missing. However, I think feeling my brand new baby girls’ amazingly soft velvet skin for the first time takes the number one slot. Honestly, I’ve never felt softness like it.
How do you motivate yourself?
These days I motivate myself by cleaning the house or rearranging a room or two. Failing that I go for a walk on the hills. There’s nothing quite as motivating as spending some time out in the wild. I’ll watch vloggers, Casey Neistat is a great motivator.
What do you like to do on a rainy day?
Listen to the rain in bed and then play video games. Sadly, most days are rainy so a lot of them are spent doing the normal tasks in life.
What’s your favourite ice cream flavour?
If you could go on holiday anywhere, where would you go?
If I wasn’t terrified of flying and had unlimited cash you’d find me buying a ticket to Japan. After Japan, my next destination would be Alaska.
What’s your goal for the next year?
I would like to spend more time on my streaming and grow a larger audience there. I’d also love to vlog more but I’ve been saying that since January and I haven’t vlogged once this year.
What was the last thing you ate?
A bowl of Weetabix after streaming The Last of Us. I needed sugar and we had nothing sweet in the house, so I loaded some Weetabix with a boatload of sugar to recharge. It’s a stressful game!
What is your ultimate pet peeve?
Negativity, can’t stand it. It’s easy to be negative, being positive is challenging, but so much more rewarding. Negativity holds everyone back and is so draining. Let’s leave negativity in the past, yes?
