“SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED TO CRY TO CLEAN YOUR EYES TO WASH ALL THE BAD STUFF AND SEE THE WORLD WITH A CLEARER VIEW AGAIN.”
I am so happy today. Today is not just another blogging tips from me that I have got from my experience. Today, I am bringing another great blogger to tell us all about her experience in the blogging world, her inspiration and her advice to all of us. Today I will be interviewing Hilary from THE CLOSET ELF. But wait no, we won’t have an interview, but we will be chatting together and I’ll be knowing her better and you too guys. Please make sure you go and check her blog THE CLOSET ELF to enjoy perfect fashionable wearable looks.
Hello Hilary, thanks for doing this chat with me. I was so happy when I saw your email that you accepted it. I won’t take so much from your time, so let’s right jump into it.
Why don’t you tell us more about your blog?
Not going to lie this is one of the questions I trouble with, but to sum it up The Closet Elf is a blog filled with miscellaneous posts as I can never seem to come up with the exact genre. Very free spirited and I would like to hope it give out the sweet and playful atmosphere.
How long have you been blogging?
I’ve started my blog on October 2014, so almost two years no w.
What inspired you to start THE CLOSET ELF?
The Closet Elf was actually a school’s project, we were asked to create a blog to post our passion. Mine happens to be fashion, hence my blog. After a couple posts I started getting into the spin and schedule of posting till this day. Don’t worry the blog no longer purpose as a school’s project.
What was the hardest step in starting a blog?
This might come as a surprise, but the hardest step in starting a blog is gaining the confidence to embrace having a blog. I was never an extrovert and I kept my blog a secret for 6 months until a friend finds out.
What is the thing that you enjoy the most in blogging?
Overall I most enjoy interacting with the blogging community and readers. Besides the experience and amazing opportunities blogging has brought me being able to interact with the readers gives a boost and motivates me to write more. I enjoy talking with the blogging community because I feel like we can relate to one another and have a lot in common.
What is the thing you enjoy the least in blogging?
There is nothing specific but sometimes it can get repetitive as I was so tied down to the fact of scheduled posts. Hence why I don't have a posting schedule as I want to make sure I provide quality content on the blog.
Do you take your own pictures, or do you use a professional photographer? If you take your own pictures what camera do you use and what program do you use to edit your pictures?
It really depends on the situation, If my mom or a friend is around then sometimes I’ll ask them to help take my pictures. But most of the time it’s just myself and a tripod. The camera I use is the Canon 6D, as for the camera lens I consistently change them depending on what I have with me
Who is your blogging role model?
Definitely Samantha Marie, I’ve been a constant reader on her blog since it was still under the name of Beuty Crush and honestly her aesthetic gives me chills it’s just so pretty.
Can you tell us what captures you the most in other blogs? Like what do you like the most about the blogs you follow, so we can take care of those details that captures other bloggers?
Personally I appreciate any bloggers who interacts with their readers, so addressing the readers at the post or maybe replying to the comments is something I really like and appreciate doing. Interacting with the readers builds a stronger connection with all the benefits for both you and them, it also shows how much you actually care and that their opinions matter.
I know that I want to know and everyone else would also want to know, what are the five advices do you give to those who want to start a blog?
1. Do it out of love instead of fame or popularity
2. Get to know your readers and what they like
3. Embrace having a blog and don't be ashamed of it
4. Compromise, post things you and your readers would enjoy. This comes with experience so just keep blogging and soon you’ll start to see the pattern and will be able to identify what they like.
5. Be open to interact with your readers and acknowledge their opinions
I would really love to know what you think of this post in the comments down below. Till next time, bye. .
