Good evening Family! It’s been a while. So good to be back for the festive season. I have partnered with Keabetswe on this post. We had a chat some few weeks back and, she sent through a questionnaire. ~Plaid Woven Trousers
You say this is your online home, what inspired you to be a blogger?
I get a lot of inspiration from books, lifestyle shows, fashion, travelling and interior designs. I grew up in a quiet environment. The mentioned interests above were my friends. As years passed, I discovered some uniqueness in me. I had great experiences, so then popped the idea of putting them in writing. That’s when I have started a blog(back in 2015 and relaunched in June 2018).
What can we expect from you in the future?
Collaborations(in fashion prints and photography), designing homes and most importantly empowering black community to take risks and pursue their dreams and lots of travelling.
What advice would you give to people who’d like to venture into blogging?
Be creative and authentic. Find out what’s fascinates and makes you different from everyone. Purchase a domain. Hire a web designer. Invest in high-quality photography and let your personality(focus on yourself! The fact that we are not, all the same, makes you unique) shine. Plan and set goals.
What difficulties have you experienced as a blogger?
Having to juggle blogging and academics, it is not easy meeting deadlines with other of my projects and also finding the perfect photographer. What do you wish you have known about having a blog?
As a beginner, I expected a high level of readership. I thought it would be easy to get the word out there about my blog. I wish I knew blogging is not an easy task. People in my community were not familiar with what a blog is, and I had to expose them to the idea. ~ RJ Black Slip On
