If creativity is another word for great fashion reviews and tips that would surely simplify that in fashion anything is possible and all that we have in our daily lives are part of what we call F-A-S-H-I-O-N. Tell me if I am not mistaken but it does makes sense for me. Everything right now is incorporated with fashion candy wrappers, notes, shoes, back packs, lunch box, bottles and even home decors can be associated with fashion and that does not only includes clothes, bags and outfit posts.
I know someone who has a love for shoes but is also open-minded in terms of the trendy world of the runway. She writes perfectly like an editor for a fashion magazine and she loves Thailand the way I love it too.
She is the perfect Pinay that I can really relate with. It is like we both are hitting the international scene and loving what we do best. We are not competing with one another but we are playing a great harmony of love for blogging. It is like playing a great song that has the perfect melody and if we combined it together it creates a perfect soundtrack for a movie. Okay that is too much!
I am not making a review about the all time favorite musical series Glee because in fact this is really about my next Favorite Blog Award real name. If there is someone who makes music in my ears that would be Glee, her pen name is Gleenn of Creative Fashion. I would not wonder why she sounds so sweet and thoughtful in every way. In a community where all girls unite and make friends with each other any where around the globe, I found someone who is not only near my vicinity but the same authenticity of being a real Filipina.
We are still planning for the big day to come when we would agree to go on a date, a bloggers meet-up just the two of us in the lovely place of Bangkok. Yes, you heard it right, we are actually in the same city blogging and I found her in a fashion community that became our second home, Delance Fashion Community. We were both concerned for each others sake during the riots that happened here last May and the constant communication paved way for a new friendship. My bad because we already exchanged our numbers but I always forget to send her a message or give her a ring. We only get to talk via twitter, Delance and yes our blogs. But I was indeed lucky to catch an interview about her.
She is busy like any one else but good thing she was very open about my interview. Know her more because she writes perfectly and she has a great collection of poetry and stories too.
Check out my interview about her.
Sweet: Can you briefly tell us about yourself?
Glee♥ This is a very difficult question because of the word “briefly”. But let me use some quotations that I authored.
“I would rather sit and write my book than go out and party with a crowd.”
“I am a friend only to few, those genuine and precious.”
” If I were to choose between a lovely dress and a fabulous pair of shoes, I’d take the shoes. Oh, how I love shoes
Sweet: How did you get into blogging?
Glee♥ I started as an expert author for Ezine Articles, a contributor for Helium.com as well as the Associated Content simultaneously until I discovered blogging by stumbling upon blogger.com. Shortly thereafter I met a virtual friend online who guided me in improving my blog. The first blog that I put up is the Creative Fashion. A couple of months later I put up two more blogs for my literary pieces – one serves as the collection of my short stories and essays while the other is solely for my poetry.
Sweet: If you had to describe your blog in less than 20 words how would you describe it?
Glee♥ I’d take it that this question refers to my fashion blog. Creative Fashion covers general fashion: shoes, apparels, bags, accessories, shopping, celebrity outfits, style tips and anything fashion with emphasis on creativity.
Sweet: How long have you been blogging?
Glee♥ A little more than a year.
Sweet: Is this a full time job?
Glee♥ No. But I do consider making it full-time. Who knows?
Sweet: In what category can you qualify your blog?
Glee♥ Editorial fashion blog with a little mix of What I Wore.
Sweet: How many blogs do you have?
Glee♥ I used to have six but I deleted one recently so I’ve got five left. However, only two are active. This is because I don’t have sufficient time to maintain everything. I put up a Shoe blog and a Scarves blog in addition to my first three blogs.
Sweet: What are some of your goals this year for your blog?
Glee♥ My goals are simple. To hopefully earn a total of 300 followers [at the least] through google at the end of this year and to get an Alexa rank lower than 350,000.
Sweet: Where do you find inspiration for your outfit post?
Glee♥ I don’t post a lot of my outfits; however, if I dress up, I get inspired by the occasion and by my mood. I always try to look good whenever I leave my house. I made it a rule to do so when I discovered that I became a subject of gossip by some vicious women which I never knew existed when they saw me on a bad hair day. From then, I never let bad mood ruin my fashion image.
Sweet: How does your workplace look like?
Glee♥ Chaotic and congested and very multi-cultural .
Sweet: What advice would you give to new bloggers wanting to start their own blogs?
Glee♥ 1.If they are serious about their blog, they should secure their own domain. When they do choose for a domain name, it has to be unique and must be less than 20 characters. The domain itself must speak about the blog. Building a blog under blogspot or other free blog publishing tools has a lot of downsides when it comes to monetizing. Abandoning a PR4 free blog with quality contents to start up a new blog under your own domain name, for example, is akin to abandoning a bungalow that you just built to start building a mansion. You’ve got to start from scratch.
2. Brave the challenges being intimidation as the biggest. When you’re new to blogging, it’s normal to feel intimidated with blogs that have great following or blogs that are already established. Just bear in mind that they too started from nothing and that they too worked hard to bring their blog to what it is now. You cannot create a great blog overnight. With time and hard work, it is born naturally.
3. If you wish to earn a good page rank quickly, you must read my article How to increase page rank in the shortest possible time. Believe me, this article is of great help for a new SEO gal.
