To start, tell us a little about yourself and your blog!
I am a fashion illustrator and fashion blogger over at Raggy Doll. I originally started my blog as a place to share my ideas, inspirations and current fashion lustings with like minded people, and I haven’t looked back. Sometimes I throw in a bit of beauty blogging in my posts, and I have regular guest appearances from my dog.
We love the looks that you put together, as well as your outfit posts. What’s been your favourite post you’ve done so far?!
Thank you! I actually really like my newest post ( http://www.raggydoll-raggydoll.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/really-like-ya-mangos-wanna-shake-ya.html). It was an outfit post of a dress I’d seen on a couple of blogs, and when I tracked it down it was only £14.50! So I got both colours & couldn’t wait to blog them. You know it’s going to be a good post when you’re excited about it! Another favourite post of mine was my Valentines themed post (http://www.raggydoll-raggydoll.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/valentines-treats.html) Any occasion to celebrate or dress a bit more specially than normal, and I am 100% in! I’m also a huge lingerie fan, so it was a great time to blog a few of my favourite picks.
Where would you like to see your blog in one year from now?
Honestly, I just want to keep on enjoying blogging. The moment it becomes a chore I think I will need to take a step back and remember why I started in the first place. I’d also love to have worked with a few more brands, that’s one of my favourite parts.
What difficulties do you think most bloggers face today?
There is a lot of competition, so maybe it’s a little harder to get noticed. Although I think it’s best to just support each other, which is another thing I love about blogging… there is a real sense of community. I saw a quote once; “one woman’s success is not another woman’s failure”. It’s always stuck with me and I think it’s a really nice thing to remember.
And finally, who are your favourite bloggers at the moment?
I love Megan from www.pagesbymegan.com and Amy from www.thelittlemagpie.com. Their styles are right up my street. I think I’ve emailed them both at one point or another for advice, and they are super lovely!
