What is your blog about?
My blog is an insight into my admiration’s and inspirations surrounding the fashion industry. Alongside examining the best dressed of the high fashion events such as the met ball or the Oscars I provide styling tips and outfit suggestions. I also share with my audience the hottest looks from catwalks and review them during fashion week, both seasonal and couture.
Is this your first blog?
Yes! I needed an extensive space to share my thoughts and ideas rather than solely on my twitter feed.
When did you start your current blog?
My blog was created on the 2nd March 2013, its first birthday has just passed!
What made you do it?
It was time to. I have always been in love with fashion and my blog is a way to prove how serious I am about the industry.
What was your first blog post about?
An introduction of myself and purpose of my blog. My following post included my inspirations and how they influence my views on the fashion world.
What do you think is the most useful tool to you as a blogger?
Social networking to engage with a diverse audience or the blogger app so I can post on the go (including abroad)!
Do people in your real life know about your blog?
It had taken me around about 6 months to tell people about my blog. I wanted to ensure it was successfully up and running and had rich content before revealing to my friends so until then I was directly engaging with other fashion bloggers. I then created a Facebook page as a source and easier way to access my blog. Day after day I find my audience growing and my closest beginning to take my blogging a little more seriously not just viewing it as a hobby!
What has been the one thing (blog post, project, etc) that you have been really proud of?
Receiving constant emails and tweets with people who show their appreciation and wish to discuss my blog. It is so lovely to know your posts are worthwhile. The most rewarding thing is when people take your styling tips into consideration and share them with you.
Where do you see your blog in a year?
Continuing to develop my posts and expanding my audience whilst approaching new areas of fashion such as menswear.
What do you wish you knew when starting your blog?
How much work it would be and how hard it is to keep up with posts on a busy schedule. Having the time to sit down and write quality pieces are the most important elements to me.
What do you wish you know more about now?
How do you keep motivated to post?
My surroundings and ambitions especially being a student. Powerful women inspire me and I always desire success and know the sole way to do this is through hardwork and determination. I also get enjoyment out of posting and find it rewarding writing about an industry I love.
Anything else you’d like to add?
