Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog because I needed a space for myself — to write, to vent, to share stuff with people who didn’t know me in real life.
What’s a sure way to show up on twentythree?
Just strike my interest. Be beautiful. Have a good cause. Be fun and creative.
What do you find most rewarding about sharing your interests?
The feedback, support, and responses I get from my followers. The kind messages and emails they send me are amazing.
What advice would you give to someone starting their blog?
Focus on content. Make your blog your own. Don’t stress on the number of followers you have. Just give it time and patience and the followers will come your way.
Have you spent any time with your followers offline?
I’m with one of my Tumblr followers right now! We’re shopping! I went to the Tumblr concert in New York and a Boston meetup to meet people, and I plan on meeting a whole bunch more.
What’s something about you that none of your followers know?
I hate chocolate because it makes me sick and I’ve never eaten a bagel in my life!
