Hey everyone! I'm so excited about today's post. For a while now I've wanted to launch this blog series called Meet (Name) From (Blog), where I feature a Q & A with one of my favorite bloggers. For my very first feature I would like you all to meet Alyssa from The Glossy Life! Alyssa has the ability to turn a snow storm into the cutest photo op. It's obvious the glass is always half full as she caries her optimism into each post with her beautiful smile. As a magazine editor in NYC she has the keen ability to make style posts look as if they fell out of the pages of Marie Claire. I've enjoyed reading her blog and with her recent site re-design this poses as the perfect time to introduce you all to Alyssa.
A. Hi Baking in Couture readers! I'm Alyssa, the voice behind the life and style blog, The Glossy Life. The Glossy Life touches on everything from fashion and beauty, to recipes and entertaining, to DIY projects and life as a twenty-something.
Q. From your personal experiences as a blogger what's the best piece of advice you have for someone just starting out?
A. Even though I've been blogging for more than two years now, I still feel like a blogging freshman–there's SO much to learn and the industry is constantly evolving, so I'm still taking it all in and growing from it. For beginning bloggers, I'd say the most important thing is knowing who you want to be as a blogger–and making sure that represents who you really are in life–people respond best to blogs that feel genuine. There are a ton of inspiring blogs out there that it can sometimes feel like there's no place for another, but there always is. Also, be supportive of other bloggers–I've met some of the most wonderful ladies through blogging, and I'm so grateful for that. Plus, word of mouth (or click of mouse!) is the best way to spread the word about your amazing new blog. And above all, be kind. That goes a long way in life.
BIC commits to MWF posts with a few surprises in between.
I read and appreciate all comments!
