Interview With A Semi-Famous Blogger

Today is an interview with a sorta famous beauty & shopping blogger-my good friend Shop In Chic.

MVR-Okay Shop In Chic(will be known as SIC from now on during this interview), tell us what made you decide to make a blog and let alone a blog about beauty & fashion?

SIC- For the longest time, I wanted to create a fashion magazine. But unless you live in New York City, you’re out of luck. I was researching about starting up a fashion website, and I soon discovered beauty and fashion blogging. I did a little more researched and launched it about a year ago. I haven’t looked back since.

MVR-Tell us about your love for fashion and beauty and how you fell in love with it?

SIC- I’ve always been fascinated with the finer things in life. As a child, I would sit on the couch for hours and look through catalogs, dreaming of all the fantastic clothes and accessories! So it’s only natural that I write about what I’m passionate about.

MVR-How did you come across beauty blogs?

SIC- I read articles about how beauty blogging was becoming a niche, and they talked about notable beauty bloggers and gave out there links. Really I find most links through other blogs.

MVR-Tell us about the name?

SIC- I had a hard time coming up with a clever and original name. I thought about what it was about, which is shopping and looking chic. Shop In Chic, you’re shopping and looking chic at the same time.

MVR-Any advice on how to get semi-famous?

SIC- Thank you, thank you. I wouldn’t say that I’m even “semi-famous”, and I’m not just being modest!

MVR-What did you use as blog promotion?

SIC- I’ve heard of 101 ways to promote, but for me the best way to promote is by regularly commenting on other blogs of the same niche. How else are they going to find you in a sea of a billion blogs?

MVR-What is your favorite brands and designers?

SIC- Ooooh, I could go on forever! Dooney & Bourke, Juicy Couture, BCBG, Diane von Furstenberg, Betsey Johnson, and I won’t bore you any more!

MVR-What do you wish you knew about blogging when you first started?

SIC- I wish I knew that it really does take time. Heck, I’m not even wear I want to be yet.

MVR-What are you goals for Shop In Chic?

SIC- To become bigger and get more readers, of course. I pride myself in being a blog that really tries to be a little more diverse when it comes to important things like style. What I mean is that I don’t talk exclusively bargains or exclusively designer, I talk about everything.

MVR-What were your hopes, goals, and dreams for Shop In Chic when you first started?

SIC- I wanted to create the best fashion and beauty blog.

MVR-Any last famous words?

SIC- Dream big and always think positive!
