Happy Monday stunners!
First things first, congrats to Maryanne for winning the DIY Granola Giveaway! Expect a (Well concealed) granola package and it’s ingredients coming your way! For the rest of you…expect something pretty epic next week.
Today I thought I’d start answering some of the questions. Thank you to everyone who used the form, emailed me or left comments- I’ve compiled them all and have broken them into parts-

Today we’ll start with all questions blog related!
How did you come up with your blog name, The Big Man’s World?
I came up with this blogs name as I was in a period of transition. I was about to finish university and essentially, be letting go of what was the final branch of being somewhat carefree- and moving to the ‘Big Man’s World’ where it was time to grow up.
How do you come up with blogging content?
It really depends. Sometimes it comes up in the midst of a conversation, some recent media hype which grinds my gears or simply a topic which I am passionate about and feel like having a vent on. I pride myself on unapologetic blogging and know firsthand, some of my posts rub others the wrong way. I welcome constructive criticism and reiterate a judgement free zone when it comes to individual choices.
Also, I would never force content– If I have nothing to say, there will be no post that day. Simple as pie. (A frozen pie. A pie from scratch is anything but).
How do you come up with recipe inspiration?
My recent recipes might provide some indication, but lately, it’s been experimenting with dessert or cake flavours and translating them to oatmeal, granola bars or cookies you wouldn’t necessarily consider. I promise that will NOT be changing anytime soon.
As I mentioned on Friday’s post, expect more single serving recipes which was a big request.
How long do you spend blogging a day/week?
It really depends on how well I manage my time. I work full time Monday to Friday, embrace my weekend brunching and dining with friend, kitchen experimenting and of course- some ‘do sh!t all’ time. Blogging comes after- I’d never sacrifice time spent with others or stressing out in favour of the blog. Saying that, it is something I am absolutely passionate about and never feel like it’s forced or a chore. I read blogs/comment/do random blog stuff after work when I’m slumped on the couch.
Would you let Regina George guest post?
No. She’s busy training for her next competition. Besides, SHE CAN’T BLOG WITH US.
What is your favourite/least favourite social media platform?
At the moment I’m really working on my blog’s Facebook page- If you’re not a fan yet- Click here and be in the loop (If you do, I may consider getting Regina George to guest blog).
I’m not a huge fan of twitter because it can get pretty overwhelming at times.
Did you hire someone to redesign your blog? Would you recommend them?
Yes. I am an amateur when it comes to Computers- when I first got my macbook, I had to use my phone to google how to shut it down. I wish I was kidding. If you’d like more information on this, shoot me an email – email@example.com
Can you change you blog name to Sugar Daddy?
Sure. You buy the domain, redirect it back here, and voila.
Can your sister replace you as the main blogger?
No she cannot. She already has an overly large head and it will explode should she have those powers.
Do your family/friends know about your blog?
Not many- I’ve told my closest friends about it but most of them are still not aware of it- I’m going to make it a goal to open up and just start telling more. I’ve told my mum about the blog, but I don’t think she reads it often.
….she still thinks Windows Microsoft 94 is a prominent player in the computer market. She also still believes in floppy disks.
Can you do a shout out or highlight me on your blog?
Sure. But you sent me an email under anonymous so that’s a great start.
And that rounds up the Blogging related questions. Some were definitely quite…interesting. See you champs tomorrow for a delicious, northern hemisphere dedicated recipe.
