Blog’s name is TrendHimUK.
Tell us a little bit about your background:
I graduated from the Economy Department. I was the editor of an advertising and marketing magazine for almost 3 years. I was a freelance writer for various magazines including lifestyle magazines. For the last 4 years I have been the social media content strategist for various brands.
How did you start your blog and why?
I started a blog in order to use it for the brands that I worked for instead of looking for a blogger or trying to convince one to write about my customer’s brand. Then it became a blog by itself. My father loves shopping and wearing good things. I have many male friends who are the same as my father. We go shopping and we spend more time in the men’s section than the women’s section. They also take advice from me.
What is your blog about?
My blog is about men’s style and fashion, but from a woman’s eye. It’s a menswear blog written by a woman. What do we –women- like in menswear? What do we prefer our boyfriend/husband wear?
What are the best and worst things about being a blogger?
Best thing is that you can write your own opinions and people read it. You create something… It’s such a good felling to get ‘likes’. I think it’s about the ego, human nature… I can’t see a bad thing…
What are the things you like most about your career?
Writing and taking photos, meeting new people all the time.
What are some of your top sources of inspiration?
Streets! I always find the street looks mesmerizing and better than the runway. It shows the person’s character and home life. I have always been a curious person. Other sources of inspiration are my friends, my father, and other blogs.
What is a typical day like?
First thing first: Coffee! I can’t wake up without a coffee! Checking my e-mails and my social media accounts, going for horse riding (show jumping) and start working. Dinner or movie or both with friends at nights. Party sometimes but not as much as I used to. And travelling… I love travelling and I travel a lot.
What are some of your greatest accomplishments?
There were 2 times that I was in the main role creating a brand and developing them. It was like giving birth. (I don’t have a child by the way) And my horse… I do attend show jumping competitions. I also did interviews with Kevin Costner and Rupert Everett in person.
What would be your advice to someone wanting to start a blog?
Just start and keep writing no matter if someone reads it or not. Someone will see and read it eventually. Trust the WOMM (Word of Mouth Marketing). Write the things about what you like most. Be efficient in social media. It’s a MUST in the new world. Blogging must be your life. Otherwise it fades.
What’s your philosophy of life?
Always do what makes you happy.
