So, yes, this is another ‘tag post’; I saw it on this blog (click here to view.) and I loved it in these sense that it could help a website’s identity, and that you could get to know more about the Blogger. (And yes, because I am nosey!) One thing I wish I was better on here is to interact with whoever read this blog; let’s change that!
What is the story behind your blog name?
At the time I thought of it, I loved Sylvia Plath; latterly I read the book ‘Pain,Parties, Work’ by Elizabeth Winder, which is about Plath’s time in New York, referencing Mademoiselle Magazine. The concept of the magazine fascinated me; women who could be literary, but also be interested in style. We’re told time and time again that that’s what we cannot do; but why not? Then I found out about the ELLE column, which really cemented the idea for me. These women are people to look up to!
What is your real reason for blogging?
I love to write, and have a need to write, but I now also have a wish to say about my Aspergers Syndrome. If I can raise awareness, then brilliant.
What is the best thing about blogging?
The people. There are such lovely Bloggers on Twitter-just tweet out and they will be so kind. The people I work with are also pretty cool; blogging has allowed me interviews, for instance, or to go to concerts. The people make this blog a truly great project for me.
What is the worst thing about blogging?
Trolling. The drama people try to draw you into on Twitter. Automated DM’s. FOMO.
What has been your proudest moment so far?
Probably meeting Queen Extravaganza; that was one of the most craziest things I’ve ever done, largely as I pitched the interview whilst on holiday in the States! interviewing Anastacia and Lissie was also a proud moment for me.
What are your ultimate blogging goals?
Turn it into a business!
If you released a book, what genre would it be?
Fiction. Because I post way too much about my life already! And also, I have been intermittently working on a novel for a little while now; I’d love for it to maybe one day be published.
If you released products, what would they be? Homeware, beauty, or something unexpected?
Stationery. Because paper allows me to be creative, and the layout is a help.
What would you name the products and why?
What has blogging taught you?
A few lessons, if I do say so myself; never refer to females as ‘girls’ in a tweet, trolls are just people who wish to feel better about themselves, your goals come with patience, to have faith, discipline, that I am not alone, and that I spend too much time online!
Sum up your blog in three words!
Feminine, opinionated, pink.
Now, I would like to tag some of my favourite bloggers; Emily Hallock, Envy Fisher, Natalie Benton, and Abbie (Abbie Chic!)
