This week’s Blogger Spotlight goes to someone who is twinning my name, Kimberly at The Kim Konnection! She is a recent college graduate that enjoys online personalities and hopes to be a publicist to one someday. The interview just talked about her life relating to feeling like “a big fish in a little pond” and her blogging experience. Read the interview below, check out the links to her social media, and her blog.
Q1: Who is your favorite “online” personality and why?
It’s actually been tied lately between Patricia Bright and Louise Pentland. I’ve been watching Patricia for years and she gives such good advice in various fields (beauty, fashion, life, career, romance, etc.) and I always find myself going back to her videos. Also, she’s a dark skinned woman like myself and that representation is very important to me. And I love Louise because she’s hilarious for one, but she’s also such a strong, compassionate person. She’s been through alot, but she has accomplished so much and to see her so happy makes me very happy. They’re both very inspiring women who have changed me for the better.
Q2: What is your favorite topic to write about on your blog?
My favorite topic to write about is either stories about trips I’ve taken or advice posts based on my personal experiences. It’s always interesting to think back to events that have happened to me and see how they could potentially be helpful to others. I love letting others learn from my mistakes haha.
Q3: What inspires you to keep moving forward with your blog, even though you said you can feel like “a big fish in a little pond”?
What inspires me is seeing other bloggers doing well with their blogs and getting excited about the content they put out. Also, hearing positive feed back on my own blog is really motivating as well. I also would love to see how my blog grows and changes when I finally do move away and all that.
Q4: Do you think that bloggers who write about many different topics or those who have one niche are more successful? Explain.
I think different topics. You can be very successful when focusing on one niche, but then you’re only able to reach one niche audience. Whereas with different topics, you’re able to reach different kinds of audiences, even if they only like a select few of your posts. It just gives you more reach and allows your blog to offer a little something to (almost) everyone. That being said, there’s nothing wrong with niche blogging and a lot of people are very good at it.
Q5: What is one piece of advice you would give to someone wanting to start their very own blog?
Be patient and give what you want to receive. If you want views, comments, and likes on your blog, especially from other bloggers, then you need to view, comment and like their blogs. Not everyone is going to return the favor but it’s a good way to get involved and get to know other bloggers, which will really help in the long run. It also helps get your name out there as well. And if you don’t know where to find other bloggers, go on twitter and join blogger chats!
