A short time ago, I asked Angel Vee if she would allow me the opportunity to interview her. Graciously, she said yes. What I did not know at the time was that Angel Vee had already been interviewed at leastfour times by her fellow Content Sources. The first one was published on March 19, 2008 and the last one that I could find was published on July 14, 2008. At the end of his interview, I will provide links to four of these interviews. I encourage you to read them all, because each one is written with its own style and flavor and this will allow you the opportunity understand Angel Vee more fully. I will try not to duplicate the efforts of the other interviewers. However, all but one interview was conducted over a year ago, so it is quite possible that her circumstances may have changed and her answers could be different.
Before the interview begins, let me point out that in just short of two years Angel Vee has received slightly more than 1.3 million page views on her published articles on Associated Content. This is outstanding work. At my last glance, I noted Angel Vee had 439 fans. That means that she is adding nearly twenty fans a month. This is quite a testament. As I have mentioned previously in my April and May of 2009 nomination articles of Angel Vee, that she takes the time to make numerous comments on other Source’s work. It is because of this and her writing style that she has tremendously loyal fans. That is why, when you are reading an Associated Content article, if you look to the left side of the screen you will see that quite frequently Angel Vee’s own published articles are among those Associated Content articles listed as having the most comments for the day. I now draw the curtains and allow Angel Vee to take the stage.
Why do now publish articles on Associated Content as Angel Vee and not 3lilangels?
Well, AC Darnell sent me an email asking me if I could make my name more professional for A.C.. So with that in mind I had no problem at all. I chose Angel Vee because Angel for my babies and my last name start with V.
Is it correct that you became a more active writer just in the last few years?
I try to be as active as I can, but some days with 3 children it’s hard to do. I basically just go with the flow and write in the early morning hours between 3-5 when my babies are sound asleep.
How did this come about and who were the people that encouraged you the most to become more active with your writing?
One of my good close friends on A.C. named Stephanie got me into this gig.
Since, becoming more active with your writing do you feel as though write more effectively and efficiently? Do you think that your writing style has evolved or remained the same as when you first began writing more seriously?
I try to do my best no matter what. I try to be as creative as I can but accurate at the same time. I love to be original and use my great talents with my writing style.
How do you come up with ideas for articles for Associated Content?
I just write about really anything I know. I get a lot of ideas from just being around people, my kids, and of course online.
Do you have a written list of article ideas that have you have yet to write?
Of course I do, but some of them are actually Christmas articles, which I won’t write about yet. Right now I am on a Halloween kick, because I love to see kids dressed up in their costumes and it just sparks so many ideas for me.
How long does it typically take you to write an article for Associated Content?
This can be a tough one, because I will start to write an article then stop in-between to do stuff my kids and my house. So sometimes one article may take a day or so depending on what’s going on in the day.
Which article or articles of yours are you the most proud of?
Wow that’s a tough one for me to answer, because I am proud of every article I write. If one article can help one person to me that’s an award.
Are your page views for each article fairly consistent or do you have some mega- performers and some duds?
I have a quite a few articles that have mega views and some that have only a few hundred. I have one article that I did this month that actually hit over 30,000 views in 4 days. To me that’s a huge award.
Which Associated Content Sources do you like to read the most?
I love them all. I love to read about everything. When I read from all different categories it really sparks my brain and allows me to learn new things every day about different ways of life or about the person.
Have you developed any close friends within the Associated Content Community?
Yes I have and they are totally awesome to me.
Where do see yourself on your fifth anniversary as Cont Source for Associated Content?
Hopefully past the 5 million mark, but not sure if that will happen.
In my April of 2009 Best of Associated Content Award nomination article of you, I predicted that you be at two million page views by May of 2010. What do you think of that prediction?
I hope to be past that mark if all possible and I have the time.
What do you consider your three biggest achievements or milestones in your writing career with Associated Content?
To make more money and be an original writer with a touch of humor at times.
Are there any changes that that you would like to see with Associated Content in the near future?
So many changes I would love, but I’m not sure if they would do it.
What do you like best about writing for Associated Content?
The friends, learning, teaching, and money
What do you like least about writing for Associated Content?
Nothing at this moment I guess.
Do publish articles on any other online sites or in print?
Yes I promote my articles on like 7 other websites including Bukisa, Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Topix, Yahoo, Yuwie, and more.
Do you ever get writers block and if so what do you do to overcome it?
No not really I always have something interesting in mind to write about.
What are some of your interests outside of Associated Content?
Hanging out with my family, friends, beach, animals, music, drawing, cooking, and so much more. I am always looking to have fun.
What are your favorite memories outside of Associated Content?
Marrying my prince and having 3 lil angels. Also my new home we just bought.
Do you enjoy giving a child his or her first haircut?
I absolutely adore it. I always want to be the first one to create that masterpiece for the child.
What do you consider a fair tip for a typical haircut or hairstyling session? In your experiences are most people fair tippers?
It really depends on how much the stylist charges you, but say the haircut is $25 then I would say $5 is an awesome tip. I received $500 for a tip once that just blew me away. The money was in a sealed envelope. When I left my salon I opened up the envelope and saw $500 I just screamed and jumped up and down. Then I felt so bad about taking this money I actually called the customer up and told them that they gave me way too much. The customer told me to keep the money and that I was the first person who actually created a piece of art with their hair. I was totally blown away. From that time on every time this customer came into my salon I would get $500 just for a $25 haircut. Sadly my customer passed away 1 year later at the very young age of 40.
Is there anything else that you would like to add to this interview?
Yes, Han you are one of the sweetest people on here who really cares for all of us and gives up pure respect. I admire what you do and definitely who you are. Your writing style is definitel
y a winner not just to me, but to all on here. You put your all into your work and at the same time it’s priceless. Thank you so very much for taking your time out to do this interview with me.
