I totally forgot to answer my questions last week and it was all about Moms too. Darn. Here is my latest entry in the Friend Friday series, enjoy and you can always ask me more in the comments section.
1. What’s your main purpose in blogging?
I’ve answered this question a bit in my FAQ’s section, but I think that answer has changed a bit. I blog because it is a creative outlet for me. I get to talk about what I want to talk about, take pictures of things I love and share things I love with all of you. That’s good enough for me to have been doing this now for 2 years and some change.
2. Do you think bloggers should receive monetary compensation for their efforts?
Would I love it if I made money from my blog and didn’t have to work my 9 to 5? HELL YES. Do I think every single blog should make money, not necessarily. I don’t see this blog as a cash cow, believe me it’s not. I think of it more as a creative outlet that will hopefully lead me to my next great career move or opportunity.
3. What do you find the most frustrating aspect of blogging?
Finding the time to do everything I want to do. I’ve been talking about doing a post on how I wear clogs for months, has it happened yet? Nope. There’s never enough time in my day to do it all and sometimes between lack of time and just creative blocks I don’t get to give The Art of Accessories everything I think it deserves.
4. What’s the most rewarding part?
The comments, the reader interaction, the emails, the tweets. There are so many people that I consider friends and I’ve never met them, only emailed, tweeted or shared comments with. I love the connection that I get to make, no matter how big or small.
5. What is one goal you have for improving your blog?
Taking the time to do bigger posts on how to accessorize is a big goal. I get asked about that stuff a lot and just want to be able to help folks out.
6. Feel free to list some of your absolutely favorite blogs to check out daily.
The Fashion Frontline : Have you seen me yet? You’ll have to vote on my style!
Design Wonderland : Jessica is one of my best friends and I love her blog almost as much as I love her.
The Coveted : I had the pleasure of getting to hang in NYC with Jennine and she is lovely and her blog is fabulous too.
What I Wore : Jessica does a daily style photo and it’s interesting to see her perspective on style.
