Blogger Interview: Mayra Vasquez
We are very grateful to Mayra Vasquez for this blogger interview.
Please check out her blog her: www.mayralamode.com
What is your blog about?
My blog is about Fashion, Beauty, and Lifestyle.
I’m also documenting my journey into entering the Fashion Industry.
What inspired you to start your blog?
Well, I’ve always wanted to share with others my Fashion knowledge and ideas, but I never really knew how. I’m a very introvert person, so I felt writing was a great way to communicate with millions of people without actually having to deal with awkward moments. Haha
When did you start your blog?
I actually started my blog around September, I was watching re-runs of America’s Next Top Model, and I just had so much to share! So I made a blog, wrote my opinions down, and to my surprise people liked it.
How do you motivate yourself to keep the blog up and running? There’s always new things going on in the fashion world, designers emerge, trends change, and there’s always something to talk about.
What do you find the most frustrating aspect of blogging?
Making my blog look perfect. I am constantly updating little things, changing colors, fonts, I just can’t seem to get it right.
In the future where do you hope your blog will take you?
I hope my blog opens more doors for me. I love fashion, maybe one day I’ll be featured in a magazine or work for VOGUE.
Have you met anyone interesting/famous on your blogging journey?
No, not yet, but soon I hope! When I do, I’ll let you know!
If you could do only ‘one thing’ today then what would it be?
There’s just so many things I want to do! But if I could do one thing today, I would love to go to brunch with Anna Wintour, is that weird?
Amazing blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Cheers!
