A little while ago I joined in with a #TeacupClub chat on Twitter; Envy Fisher tweeted about wishing to start a shop that sold stationery for Charity. Since then, she has set it up, which really impressed me. Click here to see her shop. Meanwhile, I spoke to Envy about Blogging For Business. And if you’d like to know more about how her shop was set up, click here.
Firstly, how were you introduced to the concept of blogging?
What made you wish to start blogging?
Shortly after my friend made that remark, I noticed I needed some kind of outlet. I had loads of things on my mind and no one to talk to. I had the kind of friends who’d say ‘do we really have to talk about that?’ or simply ‘shut up’ when I started about things I was passionate about. The blog remark sat there at the back of my mind, until one day I decided to give it a shot and see if it’d help me feel less isolated.
Could you tell us a little bit more about Lost In Translation?
What do you think about blogging for business?
I used to think that blogging for business was something unobtainable, that you needed thousands and thousands of followers to even get a chance to start some kind of business. It was my ultimate goal though. As long as you sell a product or service you can 100% support I see blogging for business as the best thing that could happen to a blogger.
Could you tell us a little bit about your current business venture?
Why did you decide specifically to focus on notebooks?
How will this be of a benefit in terms of charity?
I’ve always wanted to raise money to preserve wildlife and help protect the environment. As I was making plans for my shop, I was quite aware of the fact that I didn’t really need the money. I enjoy making stationery, but I wanted this to benefit more than just me and my wallet. That’s why I decided to donate €0,50 of every purchased item to the WWF, so they can keep up the good work in protecting endangered species.
Do you have any advice for fellow blogger?
