Finishing up the week of featured bloggers with everyone’s favourite – Jay @ Bearded Igor Blogs!
Who are you?
My name is Jay, also lovingly know as the BeardedIgor
What’s your blog address?
What’s the name of your blog?
BeardedIgor. It came about after a convo with a friend where I casually remarked you never see an Igor with a beard.
When did you start?
I started 1 June 2018. It’s incredible to think it’s only been 2 months now.
WHY did you start?
One word, recovery. I hit a low point in life. Just been dumped and found out I had anxiety for near on 15 years I wanted to start writing to help get my thoughts out.
What sort of posts do you feature?
A mixture of things. I have short stories, positive posts, anxiety posts, lists of favourite things. All sorts.
Ever made yourself a blanket fort?
Yes I mean who hasn’t haha.
What 3 essentials would you have in your Blanket Fort?
These days Xbox, food and drink. The essentials.
Blogging can be a very personal thing… have you told your friends and family that you have a blog?
Yeah they were my first supporters. I know one of my best friends and Mum read my blog a lot. It means the world to me.
What are your passions, what makes you happy?
Music, gaming and sport. Music is something close to my heart. Simple words on a powerful song, an intro that makes your skin tingle and a guitar riff followed by the bellowing sound of screamo all make me happy. Gaming is something I use to connect with friends and put me in a place where I can shut things out. Always been a huge football fan so Saturday at 3pm is always a great day 🙂
Describe your happy place for us.
Somewhere where my head isn’t racing, thoughts aren’t over loading. Somewhere where I’m not over thinking everything and worrying. Somewhere where my brain isn’t fighting every positive thought I ever possessed. Where I can smile, enjoy a laugh and forget. My happy place isn’t a physical place, isn’t a beautiful location or a beach somewhere. My happy place is a state of mind, positive and just happiness.
Last one – If you were a sweetie… what would you be?
Ooh this is so tough. I have no idea. I really want to say a pick n mix as in a little bit of anything haha. Awesome question.
