Thanks for deciding to pop in and spend some time with me today. It’s gonna be good I can tell you that.
Oh yeah, welcome to the “Creative Corner“! Don’t be alarmed by the title, I’m still bringing you exciting interviews with other creatives, I’ve just decided to group them all under this title.
I am excited to be having a guest on the blog whose blog I follow and love!
I would like you to say hello to miss Nons Mshengu, creator of the beautiful blog Cher Belle that aims to inspire and uplift women to be the best version of themselves.
This 22-year-old South African blogger is also a freelancer and digital creator who loves to write and is obsessed with iced coffee.
Continue reading to find out more about this truly inspirational blogger.
What does blogging mean to you?
Blogging to me means having a creative outlet to be able to express myself however I want. I have always been someone that is creative and loves writing & when I got to university, I wasn’t happy with what I was studying so I started blogging and it was the best escape. It gave me something to look forward to and gave me the fulfilment I was lacking.
What was the inspiration behind the name of your blog?
Cher Belle is French for ‘Dear Beautiful’. The name is French because I fell in love with French in high school and it has stayed with me since then. It is ultimately an ode to myself and a love letter to every person that clicks on my blog. I wanted it to be a space where you leave it feeling beautiful, empowered and inspired.
What do you love most about blogging?
What I love the most about blogging is being able to connect with people all over the world. I have made so many incredible friendships with people who have connected with my work, who are inspired by my work and want to see me winning.
I didn’t expect to meet so many kind and supportive people when I started this journey so it is not only what I love the most but it has been the best surprise.
Who are some of your favourite bloggers and why?
love blogs that inspire me to create more and make me want to be a better writer and digital artist.
KAYLEIGH ZARA is one of my favourites. She imparts so much knowledge, tips and tricks about blogging that I am sure I wouldn’t have known otherwise.
CAMPS BAY GIRL is one of my favourite South African bloggers. I saw her page and I was immediately blown away by her quality and her travels. She is a must-follow!
BUDDING REGARDLESS is also one of my favourite bloggers. She is also South African but currently living in America & it’s amazing to be able to follow her journey.
What do you think the most challenging part of being a blogger is?
Consistency! Blogging takes SO MUCH TIME! No one speaks about how time-consuming it really is so for me I have struggled so much with consistency because of the fact that I don’t have a lot of time.
However, this year it is definitely one of my goals to be more consistent with my blog.
Which of your blog posts is a “must-read”?
ALL OF THEM! I’m kidding, lol. It would have to be “5 simple daily habits to change your life!”
This post was a very transformative one for me. I had just realized gone through a huge lifestyle change and writing this to share, then having so many people relate to it and love it is what makes it a must-read for me.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
Like I said, I am someone who is truly inspired by people around me. I choose to surround myself with like-minded people who are goal orientated and just going hard for themselves. It motivates me to go hard for myself too.
But blog-wise, I am an extremely visual being so Pinterest is my go-to. I make mood board every month for what type of content I want to create and that propels me to stay inspired throughout the month when I am writing posts, taking photographs etc.
What has been the highlight of your blogging journey thus far?
Buying my own domain and self-hosting, for sure.
I started blogging in 2018, with the free WordPress domain and themes. Although I was loving it and happy, making the investment into this blog and myself made me realize how I sure I was that I can be successful in this industry.
With that said, I have done quite a lot since I decided to self-host in January 2021. I have launched my own presets, created free printables for my subscribers & started a series called ‘ALL ABOUT THIS GIRL BOSS’ where I will be speaking to South African women who are absolutely killing it in their respective industries.
What are your essential blogging tools?
My essential blogging tools would have to be:
– Flodesk (I use Flodesk for my email marketing. It is so aesthetically pleasing and makes email marketing so much more enjoyable and easier)
– Trello ( I love Trello for all my organizing. I genuinely don’t know where I’d be without it. Trello is an amazing app to really be able to map out everything you need to do, set deadlines for yourself & plan out your blog posts.)
– Lyrical (Lyrical is what I use to host my website. They are so helpful, make the migration process too easy & if I need help with anything, they are available immediately.)
Piece of advice you’d like to give to beginner bloggers…
The most important thing I would tell a blogger just beginning is to not be discouraged. It is so easy to feel discouraged when you are putting in so much effort but you’re not seeing the traffic coming in or the engagement on your blog.
Keep your chin up, be consistent, keep creating content that you love and the right people who want to read what you are putting out will find you.
Blogging is not an easy way to reach an audience or to gain popularity so make sure that if you want to blog, you’re blogging because you love it.
