Since the beginning of my time as a blogger I’ve been on the lookout for websites that are somewhat similar to Loitering Lion. It’s much harder than you would think! There is a sea of blogs out there and finding something different can feel like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Over time, however, I’ve had some success. Recently I stumbled across an amazing blog known as Hepburn’s Pixie Crop. Megan, the woman behind the blog, states that PixieCrop.com is “as a whole [a] lifestyle with some beauty elements, but it really is just anything I fancy writing about at the time. Books, films, comics, day trips, whatever!” Aha! Looks like I found what I was looking for!
Megan, 21, began blogging in February of 2014. She was working on her studies as an English Literature major in England when she decided to procrastinate by starting a blog. She’s been posting everyday, but has been cutting back to once every other day in order to “give [herself] the space to breathe if [she] ends up getting really busy again.” Her favorite topics to blog about are books and comics, resulting in her review of Deadpool Killustrated being one of her favorite posts on her website.
Blogging has changed Megan’s life by allowing her to talk to more people and become more confident in her work. “I’m happy to show it to the world, whereas I was deadly scared of doing so before,” she says.
As far as gaining more followers is concerned Megan insists that fellow bloggers “let it happen naturally. I know, I know, cliché. But it’s true! Spamming people’s comment boxes with giveaways and ‘please look at my blog!’ pleas isn’t going to get you a true following. People will follow you if they want to follow you. You want people who share your ideals and passions to be the people you closely communicate with. It’s like making new friends. You don’t force people, it happens naturally.”
Megan is often inspired to post by Lyzi from BringLittle.co.uk because of “how she doesn’t conform to the usual posts blogs write and catalogues her beautifully-photographed life.” When asked about where she sees herself as a blogger 5 years from now Megan admits “I honestly have no idea. It’s a hard thing to predict! I can’t even try and guess where my life is going to be in general in five years. I’d like to think I’ll still have my wonderful followers that I have today. They’re so supportive and it makes me so, so happy when I see my regular commenters saying such lovely things about what I write. That’s all I could ask for.”
Megan is a very talented blogger with a lot of intelligent and inspiring thoughts to share with the world. She’s so friendly and her website is always teeming with fresh content. To hear more from Megan, visit her at PixieCrop.com or follow her on Twitter.
