Lifesfinewhine- The Random Interviews

Hey there! Welcome back to ‘The Confessions of a Random Blogger!’

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Pooja from Lifesfinewhine. She was one of the first bloggers I ever came across when I first started blogging, and she continues to be an inspiration for me and multiple other bloggers I’m sure.

I would like to sincerely thank Pooja for allowing me to interview her. Check out her blog if you haven’t already!


How would you describe yourself and your blog to a new reader?

Hi, everyone! My name is Pooja and I’m a Kenyan blogger currently residing in Canada. My blog is a multi-niche blog which basically means I write about a number of topics. I have a lot of different interests and wanted to share a lot of different topics with my followers without confining myself to just one topic. I write about my life and experiences as well as other topics such as poetry, six word stories, quotes, blogging advice, vegan recipes and food and so much more. 

What is your writing process like? Do you have any traditions or rituals you do while writing?

I don’t exactly have a particular ritual or anything but I do like to meditate before I write just so I can really think about what I want to put out there and put it out into the universe first.

You are one of the most followed bloggers I know. what are some tips you would like to give to smaller bloggers looking to achieve what you have?

My main tip would be to be patient and stick with it. I see a lot of bloggers who try to grow overnight but it just does not work like that. Blogging takes time and patience. When people try to take the easy way out they often end up stealing ideas from other bloggers, leaving spam comments and likes, choosing quantity over quality and other unethical things. This may get you a few random followers but will not get you an organic audience.

What is one of your blogging pet peeves?

At the moment my biggest pet peeves are people leaving spam comments and people stealing content ideas. In general, blogging is a lot of fun for me but these two things really annoy me. 

What are some of your biggest aspirations, in terms of blogging and in general?

I guess I aspire to become a full-time blogger when it comes to blogging and in general I would love it if I could turn my online ventures like blogging and social media into a full-time job.

What was one of your biggest blogging mistakes?

Not doing enough research- I wish I had known back then some of the things I know now. 

Who are some of your favourite bloggers and why?

I literally have so many I can’t list them all but I will name a few that come to mind:

Tiani

Cindy

Belladonna

Wintersoseca

Haoyan

Jim

Matt

Shweta

And SO MANY MORE! These are just the ones that are currently coming to mind. 

What is your opinion about blogging as a career? Should blogging just be a hobby? What would you like to say to people that say otherwise?

Yes, of course blogging could be a career. If you are able to turn it into full-time work you most definitely should. Always do what you enjoy and if that’s blogging go for it. For those that disagree- the world is constantly changing and currently traditional jobs are not as easily available to many especially the younger generation and for those that do work traditional jobs it can be quite unfulfilling as a large number of these jobs run on taking advantage of their employees. With blogging you are your own boss, you make the rules and you get to keep the profit you make from your hard work. Online work is becoming increasingly popular due to the way the world is evolving and this sort of work is the future whether we like it or not.

Has your creative process changed during the pandemic? If yes, describe how.

Yeah- I have a lot more time now in general which I have been using to write some longer posts and do more research for my posts. 

What is the most difficult thing about blogging?

I think, personally, the technological/technical aspects are the most difficult as it’s really not my thing. 

What’s your most favourite and least favourite post you’ve ever put out? Why?

My most favourite post is this one.

The reason it’s my favourite is because that’s when I got my first thousand followers and it was a huge achievement for me. I never thought I would get ten let alone a thousand so this was crazy to me and I remember just being in absolute awe. 

I don’t currently have a least favourite post to be honest. I may not relate to some of my older posts as much as I did when writing them but I still love them because that’s where I was at that point of my life. 

Thanks for interviewing me- it was a pleasure. 


Thank you for reading! Once again, I would like to thank Pooja for allowing me to interview her. Now I have a question for you guys- What are some of your biggest pet peeves? They don’t necessarily have to be about blogging!

  1. People who spam and steal content are the worst! I’m glad that you’re getting more time to blog, Pooja. I hope that soon you’ll be able to take it up full time. I’m honoured that I’m one of your favourite bloggers. Thank you so much for the shoutout! Great interview, Random Blogger!

  2. What great fun for Pooja to finally get interviewed after interviewing so many great people’s blogs Random Blogger.
    Great job… I bet everyone would have loved that opportunity but you made it happen.

    There is no one like her and I’m so grateful to her for her help with the technology etc even though she doesn’t like it either. 🤣. She has been a Godsend and so encouraging like she is with all of us and with over 22,000 followers, i’ve no clue how she does it with her studies, instagram etc. She’s an inspiration❣️❣️❣️❣️👏👏👏
    I couldn’t agree with her more about the spammers.

    She’s right be patient… Rome wasn’t built in a day. Be authentic. Give more than you want to receive. That’s where the gifts are.

    If anyone can be a professional blogger it would be her.. For the rest of us make sure to keep your day job.

    And WOW thanks for the mention of being one of the Cindy’s you mentioned as one of your favs… I’m sure there are at least 20 Cindy’s floating around but you’re covering your bases.. You have to when you’re famous you know. You and me.. 🤣🤣🤣🤣
    👏👏👏👏👏👏👏🙌🙌🙌

  3. Pooja was one of the first bloggers that I started reading as well. Her advice has been both informative and inspiring. When I’m feeling a bit lost about the direction of my blog, I remember her essential message to write for yourself first—not some imagined audience. I’m glad you interviewed her because I didn’t know she was from Kenya.

    I don’t know if I have a pet peeve yet with respect to blogging. It’s harder than most people think but whatever. As Pooja reminds us, I’m doing this for me.
