Follow her along the way:
1. How would you describe your style? Where does your inspiration come from?
I would describe my personal style as minimalist chic. I typically don’t wear very much color and my go-to pieces are oftentimes neutral in color (black, white, grey, olive/khaki). I was influenced by other minimalist bloggers and how they put themselves together. they always looked appealing with very little color. Black is my favorite color so I figured it just fit.
2. Do you consider yourself a professional communicator?
I do consider myself a professional communicator. In a sense, we’re all professional communicators. We can send out dozens of messages each day so easily from our phones.
3. How do you continue to build your audience?
I’m still perfecting the art of building and maintaining my audience. One of the most important aspects of blogging is consistency. Your audience doesn’t want you to post “every now and then” or inconsistently; they want guaranteed content frequently posted. It’s also important to just be yourself. I think people respond to a more authentic personality than one that feels “manufactured”. I try my best to remain true to myself.
