The Blogger Interview Series

A few days ago, I was nominated by a fellow Blogger to participate in The Blogger Interview Series.  They'll be a short paragraph after the interview in regards to the picture above.* 

How did you get into blogging?
I have a Fashion Consulting business where I provide Clients with closet organization, personal shopping, fashion advice, etc.  My Clients wanted a personalized source of information that keeps them current on fashion trends.  My blog: Everyday Fashion on a Budget gained huge popularity, and now I'm a successful Fashion Blogger.

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?
There are millions of bloggers out there.  Set yourself apart by finding your niche.  Also, the more you put into your blog, the more you get out of it.  Participate in promotions, guest posts and apply for blogger programs.  The more you put yourself out there, the more you'll get noticed.

What would be your dream campaign?
I participate in a lot of fashion blogger programs.  The one company that I have yet to collaborate with, but I buy a lot from is H&M.  Their clothes and accessories are right in line with my blog's purpose.  Designer fashion at an affordable price.  Love H&M.

Do you have a plan for your blog?
Absolutely.  I want to continue to collaborate with clothing companies, and potentially expand into the beauty and lifestyle industry.  To become an International Fashion & Lifestyle Brand, would be my ultimate goal for my Blog.

What do you think about rankings?
When I first began blogging, I thought it would be easy to gain the numbers needed to collaborate with brands.  I quickly realized that it takes hard work, time and dedication to become successful (just like any other business).  I believe that rankings are a reflection of how hard you are willing to work and they are necessary to measure that hard work.
