I've Been Nominated for the Liebster Blog Award!
I have been blogging for about three years now, but I'm honestly just now starting to do it "correctly", so I am honored and excited to have been nominated for this award by fellow blogger Queen C of Lavender Luvah!
I can't lie, I had to read up on the Liebster Award to see what it was about because I had no clue. I discovered that it is an internet only award given to bloggers by other bloggers. It's sort of like a chain letter that acts as a way to recognize, highlight, promote and discover new blogs. Some people accept it, some don't, but it opens up your blog to new audiences and allows people to find out a little more about you and your blog so why not?
The nominee answers questions asked by the person that nominated them and then includes 10 random facts about themselves. Once that is done, the nominee then nominates another group of bloggers and so on and so on.
Q&A from Queen C:
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging for a few reasons:
What is your goal as a blogger?
My goal as a blogger is to inform and educate my reader on All the Fly Things. I want to solidify myself as a fashion expert and a style leader and I try to do so through my blog posts by giving fashion and style tips, writing fun fashion features, attending and reporting on local fashion events, discussing fashion industry news, interviewing cool people, and my own FlyGirl Chronicles adventures in fashion.
Is blogging your hobby or a job?
Nah, I work way too hard for this to be a hobby!
How do you promote your blog?
I mainly use social media, I am a part of lots of blogger and fashion and style groups on Facebook and I use word of mouth while I am out and about. I have a few other tactics that I use including traditional marketing strategies: business cards, postcards, events.
Do you make money off your blog ? If yes how do you do it?
Yes, by collaborating with independent brands and businesses and hopefully off of affiliate marketing really soon. I also host an account for models through my Model Portal. It's for models who are looking for a professional online portfolio to store their photos, booking information, stats, etc. without having to do any extra work.
Have you ever won other blog awards?
I never even knew that they had blog awards!
What is your advice for new and upcoming bloggers?
Do you blog on YouTube ? If yes,how many subscribers do you have?
No I don't, but I micro-blog on Instagram and I have a personal blog: The FlyGirl Chronicles where I talk about things that don't involve fashion and style. I started it a few months ago and enjoy the freedom that comes with not being inside just one niche. I can write about other things that move me: my weird favorite movies, my favorite street lit books and old school southern rappers I love and other random things.
