When did you start blogging and why?
It’s a long story, but to keep it brief I started blogging during undergrad. However, I didn’t start blogging professionally until after graduating.
What have you been doing to keep productive during the lockdown due to Corona Virus?
As of right now, I have been pretty much taking it easy blogging wise, etc. I have been working on small projects here.
Who are some of your favourite bloggers and why?
I have several favourite bloggers. Some of my favourite bloggers are Tanesha Awasthi of Girl With Curves, Chasity Garner Valentine of Garnerstyle, Nekiah Torres of From the Rez to the City, Rochelle Johnson of Beauticuve and many others. I look to them for style inspiration, blogging advice, and more.
What did you want to be when you were younger and what do you do now?
Wow! There easier question would be what didn’t I want to be. In middle school, I wanted to be a fashion designer. While I still have a love of fashion I focused more on blogging and writing instead.
What would you say makes you unique as a blogger?
I think what makes me unique as a blogger is that I cover all different aspects of fashion. On My Own Sense of Fashion, we covered not just red card fashion, but the business side of the industry as well.
Do you or have you ever participated in Blogtober, why or why not and what advice would you give someone who is interested in doing Blogtober?
Honestly, I haven’t participated in Blogtober yet. My advice is to have fun and research topics that reflect your blog.
What do you like most about yourself?
What I like most about myself is my ability to be determined despite setbacks. Setbacks are inevitable, but it comes down to how you deal with them.
When you get writer’s block, how do you go about regaining your inspiration?
One thing I do is step back for a while. I don’t try to force a topic, etc.
Once I have cleared my mind, I am ready to write. If it doesn’t, I just choose another topic in its place.
What are the skills you think are required for one to be a successful blogger?
There are few I can think of but the main ones are consistency, determination, and patience.
What advice would you like to give to the new bloggers that are just starting out?
My advice is to do research, find your voice, just start your blog.
Honestly, I wish I would have done my research when I first started.
Don’t worry so much about the other blogs and bloggers. There is only one you.
I hope you guys have enjoyed our little “chill sesh” with Tamara. Let us know what you thought by dropping a comment.
