“THE TRUTH IS YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN TOMORROW. LIFE IS A CRAZY RIDE AND NOTHING IS GRANTED.”
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 Tamara from LOVE OF MODE. 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 LOVE OF MODE to enjoy perfect fashionable wearable looks.
Hello Tamara, 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?
Two and half years ago I left my home country, Lebanon and moved to San Francisco. As we were new to the area, my hubby & I were exploring what the west coast had to offer. I wanted to document our adventures so I started a blog named The West Coast Explorer. As the time went by, I started pivoting more towards fashion and the The West Coast explorer brand didn’t match with it’s content anymore. So I rebranded my blog, named it Love Of Mode and focused more about fashion, my true passion.
How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging on and off for about two and half years. But ever since I launched Love of Mode, less than a year ago, I became consistent with my schedule.
What inspired you to start LOVE OF MODE?
I’ve loved fashion ever since I was a child. I wanted a place where I can express my style and feed my creativity, so Love of Mode was born.
What was the hardest step in starting a blog?
The hardest part when you stat a bog is definitely getting your name out there and making your blog stand out. I learned the hard way that you have to work on it, because it won’t happen by itself.
What is the thing that you enjoy the most in blogging?
Blogging is something I’m really passionate about. I love coming up with new concepts, I love shooting, editing pictures and writing content too. I honestly enjoy every aspect of it.
What is the thing you enjoy the least in blogging?
Even though I feel unmotivated sometimes, I still get a big smile on my face when I’m doing anything related to blogging.
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?
I’m lucky that my husband happens to be a photographer and filmmaker. He takes my photos 90% of the time. Sometimes though I take my own pictures. I use my husband’s camera the Canon 5D Mark II and I prsonally edit all the pictures on Lighhtroom.
Who is your blogging role model? Who is the other blogger that you look up to and wish to be like one day?
There’s a few bloggers that I admire but to be honest I don’t wanna be like anyone, they’re already taken, I just wanna be the best version of me. Rose from The Londoner has to be my all time favorite blogger. I really love her style of blogging and fashion sense too. I also admire Lauren’s from The Skinny Confidential boldness. She discusses all those “taboo” topics in such a honest and non offensive way.
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?
I love a well designed, well layed out blog. The first thing you see in a blog is the layout. It has to be cohesive and easy to navigate. But if the content isn’t of good quality I probably won’t come back again.
In the end can you tell us, what are the five advices do you give to those who want to start a blog?
1. Find a good layout/theme
2. Commit and be consistent
3. In order to get you have to give
4. It’s ok to say no. Don’t jeopardize the quality of your blog for a few dollars.
5. Stay humble
