Introducing: ASK MARIA ♡



Hey all! I've decided to introduce an ADVICE COLUMN. 

I'm introducing this because I felt like there was somewhat a gap between my readers and I.
I absolutely adore your messages via email and social media but this adds a whole new level of personalization to my blog that I've been craving.

My goal is to be real and uncensored. I want to help people. I want to connect with you. I want to pour my soul on the keyboard for you.

Submit all your questions to askmariamondays@hotmail.com and you could see your question up on my blog! SUBMISSIONS ARE ALWAYS OPEN. NO MATTER WHAT.

Here's a little FAQ below for how you can submit / any other concerns. In the future I'll probably tidy this up once I know what I want for this column.

What can I ask you?
  • Primarily, these are going to be ADVICE questions. If you want advice on literally anything, go ahead and ask! The more details, the better. A backstory always helps.
  • Ask about relationships / work + career / art / school + college / mental health / spirituality / body image /  social justice issues / literally everything and anything else.
  • ANYONE can ask. Any age, gender, race, religion, location, walk of life...
How can I ask a question?
  • Email me at askmariamondays@hotmail.com /Advice submitted through my personal email or social media will not be responded to. I will be checking emails every Monday for review.
How will I know my piece is selected?
  • If I choose your question, I will email you letting you know with a link to my answer.
Are there any rules or guidelines? Can I ask you personal questions? How many words does it have to be?
  • My rule with questions is if I can help at least one person out there, it's all goooood. However, if it's a question with a simple yes or no answer than it probably won't make the cut. You don't have to write me a novel, but I can't give you good advice if you give me a sentence. Shoot for at least 5 sentences. (I feel like a 4th grade teacher saying that.)
Are you qualified to be giving advice?
  • There's always that one cynical person who gets mad when someone that doesn't have 5 PhD's gives anyone advice. I am no psychologist or licensed expert here, and I'm not claiming to be. However, I am pretty damn good at giving advice. It's something I enjoy. All of the conclusions I come to come from my wisdom and my experience.
Is this confidential?
  • Yes yes 100% yes. Just tell me the name you want to go under. If you don't want even me to know who you are, make a fake email. If you want exposure, tell me and I'll add your link on my post. It's all up to you. Nothing will be used without your permission.
Can I ask more than one question?
  • You can ask as many questions as you want!
