Why did you delete your previous blog?
My previous blog was on blogger which was difficult to use as I use my sister’s laptop. She didn’t like me logging on to google mail with my address and logging her out. Most of her site used Gmail so my logging in caused her a lot of difficulties.
You’ve deleted most of your social networks, how come?
I’m planning to fully address this in a future blog but the main reason is because I don’t need them
Do you plan on deleting any more social networks?
I want to delete my Instagram but that won’t happen soon. I’m also planning on to make a private SnapChat.
Where did the name Jorlaska come from?
Jorlaska is originally a shipping name. (If you’re a fangirl, You will totally understand this). I used to go by the pseudonym name Alaska, a year ago, after the character Alaska from John Green’s novel, Looking for Alaska and I also liked the youtuber Perpetual Jordan during that period of time. So a close friend and I came up with the name Jorlaska as a shipping name. It’s no longer a shipping name but I do use it as a brand or I plan on doing that.
When are you going to blog?
Since it’s a Monday today, I hope to blog every Mondays or every other Mondays depending on how busy my schedule will be
