Hi guys! Happy Friday 🙂 a couple days ago I was answering some of my DMs with questions you guys asked! So, I decided to round 5 questions I received that day into a post so everyone can see!
Q: HOW DO YOU BECOME A BLOGGER? I AM REALLY INTERESTED IN FASHION AND HELP MY FRIENDS OUT ALL THE TIME WITH THEIR LOOK! I FEEL LIKE IT WOULD SOMETHING I WOULD REALLY ENJOY AND BE GOOD AT! – @adriana_schutz
A: It sounds simple, but you honestly just have TO DO IT! There is no right way to do to it. Don’t worry about your website or photos being perfect, the most difficult and important part is to just put yourself out there through your social media & website.
Brittany from Thrifts & Threads has a really good blogging tip section that helped me out when I first started. You can find it right here.
You can also read about my journey in a recent interview I did with The Digest, a Hoboken/Jersey city magazine, here!
YOUR PICTURES ARE SO AMAZING! DO YOU FILTER/EDIT THEM? AND IF SO, DO YOU USE PHOTOSHOP, LIGHTROOM OR ANY OTHER APP TO DO SO? – @iwantkende
A: First off, THANK YOU so much! That means a lot to me. I honestly edit most of photos on my phone using VSCO, Lightroom or Snapseed. There are a ton of great editing apps out there, but those are three that I love the most (& that I am used to) <3
Q: Was wondering how long you blogged part time before you were able to make it career? Also dow did you get into making money from it. I always feel bad asking for money and am so unaware as to how to start that and go about it? – @laurenbeluxe
A: I quit my job this past March! I wrote a post about right here that explains how it all came to be. In regards to how to make money while doing it – that is a tricky question! I think it differs for everyone, but I started to ask for a tiny bit of money when I hit 10k. Always ask, but don’t be greedy. Be fair & know your worth.
Q: I was wondering how you gained such a large following on Instagram? – @mypassport2style
A: Thank you! I don’t really have much large following, but I started to gain my readers & audience by getting featured on large accounts that had super loyal audiences such as American Eagle, H&M, Forever21 & OOTD Magazine. THANK YOU to those accounts. <3
Q: How do you do your hair with it [Moroccan oil texture spray]? -@lilasirena
A: Haha! I feel like I get this question at least every day, my hair. I did a little post here about how I use some of my products, but I am so guilty – I STILL haven’t made a tutorial. AH. Hair tutorial by end of month. Promise.
