This time the lucky one is Bessana Blue. She loves fashion and dresses differently from the others. She has developed her own style and I adore it! It's so colorfull! Her blog is also very good and well thought out. I was curious about her opinion on fashion and how she got such a nice blog. This is the interview. What do you think of her style?
Please introduce yourself.
My name is Bessana Blue, I’m a fashion passionate and blogger from The Fangle Jungle (thefanglejungle.blogspot.com)
. I’m a strange dreamer addicted to writing, reading, music, fashion, chewing gum and chocolate M&Ms.
Why (and when?) did you start blogging?
I started blogging 30.03.12, almost four months ago. I decided to run my own blog because of my style, which stood out among grey and boring streets. My friends used to say, that I have got a very personal way of dressing, and in the end of 2011 one of my colleagues said “You know what? You should have a fashion blog!” I wasn’t sure about this, but one day I thought “Why not? I want do to this, and I have to stop saying ‘Maybe tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow’. So… I just did it J
What keeps you blogging?
I think that the most important things, that keeps me blogging are reactions from my readers. I see that someone likes my outfit, and it makes me super happy when I see my efforts are appreciated by someone ;)
Please describe your style.
My style is quirky and unusual. I love colors and crazy things, jewelry and beautiful details. But I also appreciate classics like black&white and minimalism, I’m wearing them seldom, but they’re also great. Anyhow, I feel best in juicy colors and crazy sets, I get used to people’s shocked gazes ;)
Who is/are your style icon(s)?
My style icons are Anna Dello Russo and Coco Chanel. I know, they are as heaven and earth. I really like every single Anna’s look and her amazing fashion sense. As I said, I love colors and crazy stuff, and she totally rocks it! I admire Chanel, because she dominated fashion, and had a great, although classic style.
How does your blog make progress?
I try to do my best all the time. I really care of quality and frequency of posting and I improve it every day ;) I try to develop my passion and make it interesting to my readers.
What do you like the most about blogging?
Blogging is a chance to share my passion and meet new people J Sharing my passion makes it even better! I’d like to do someone associated with fashion in future, so I enjoy dealing with this. I also found a lot of blogs led by amazing people, it is really inspiring!
Are there any things you don’t like about blogging?
Honestly…? No! It is my escape from daily problems and it makes me smile even more!
Do you have any difficulties with finding new topics to post about? Why or why not?
I think that I don’t. The biggest part of my posts are my outfits, which are sets I wear daily basics, they are not artificially created for photo shoots ;) Other posts usually express what’s on my mind J
Is it easy to blog and why?
It’s hard to say… I devote my free time to blogging, but it became my hobby, and even if sometimes it is hard to take good pics or write something good, I don’t mind ;) One thing I am sure about this: time consuming, but worth it J
What do you think of your readers?
They’re the best readers ever!!! I will say it like that: my blog is a car, I’m an engine, and they’re the best fuel ever! I really appreciate them, especially loyal readers, who often let me know about their opinion J
What do you blog about?
After all these questions it’s obvious, but I can say it million times: fashion <3
Who is your target group?
Everyone! I’m from Poland, but my readers are from around the world and I think it is great! I blog from people from anywhere and at any age J
Are there any people who help you with your blog?
Yes! I get much help from my best friend, she is the my main photographer under the pseudonym Mowa-Zee J My mom is also taking pics of me, and one of my friends recently said that she can also help me. I think it would be tough without them ;)
Do you have sponsors for your blog? Yes, what did they sponsor? No, why not?
For now no, because I decide to expaned my blog and make it really good before having sponsors. But maybe I’ll look for some collaborations soon, who knows?
What did you do to gain followers?
I visited and commented on lot of blogs, I also asked people if they want to follow each other, but I have a rule: I’m asking about that people, whose blogs I really liked and I just want to keep in touch with them J
Which interesting blogs do you follow and why?
Every blog which I follow is interesting and special <3 My favourite blog from more popular ones is Macademian Girl’s blog (macademiangirl.blogspot.com). She is one of my biggest inspirations. I really like one of pretty new blogs, Photographic Sense (reinhardtkenneth.blogspot.com
Do you have anything to add to this?
Yes. After few months of blogging, despite my earlier concerns about this, I really loved this, so here is my advice: If you want to do something, stop putting it on tomorrow. It can be fun, but you have to find it out by yourself.
