Hey Gemma, tell us a little about your blog and why you started it…
I absolutely love fashion and as someone who generally has something to say about everything I felt that starting a blog would be a great way for me to witter on freely! I had also started writing for a couple of fashion magazines and think that by having a blog it can help to develop your writing skills and creativity.
And what’s your plan for your blog? Where would you like to see it in a year from now?
It would be brilliant if in a years time my blog was well known, I think everyone wants to feel appreciated at what they do. I have recently started blogging about fitness (I actually have a Diploma in Sport Psychology -theory based) and would like to see that side of things develop.
Does blogging full time appeal to you, or is your blog primarily a hobby?
You could technically say that I do blog full time. I left my job of eight years at a Veterinary Referral Hospital at the end of July to pursue a career as a Freelance Writer, and I think that my blog has been a great platform for that. I definitely use it a way to get my name out there.
Who are your favourite bloggers at the moment?!
There are so many great bloggers at the moment. I think may favourite would have to be Paula who writes the P-Ho Diaries, she has such varied, interesting content. Also I would go for Tasha who writes drawdrobe and for me her posts on freelancing writing are invaluable.
And finally what would be your 3 top tips for those just starting to blog?
Always write about what you would want to read, blog for yourself not for others.
Your blog is like an extension of your personality, so don’t be afraid to let it shine through. Personally I write how I speak so it is very much like you are actually talking to me.
When reviewing products be honest. You should be able to give your genuine opinion of something but do remember that there is no need to ever be rude about an item.
