Hello there, today in our Bloggers Interview series, We are publishing an interview of Nistha Saraf, Fashion & Lifestyle blogger at Fashionistha.
Can you tell our readers about yourself?
Hi friends, I am an MBA by qualification, working with Real Estate Company based in Pune. Currently, I am located in Pune. Married to the most wonderful human.
When and how the blog idea took place?
I have always been inclined towards fashion and have a thing for styling outfits. Coming from a small city, Varanasi, I did not really know what blogging means. After shifting to Pune, I got to learn about blogging and one fine day I decided I would do this with my husband’s consent and where it all started. It’s been almost 15 months since I am into fashion blogging.
How much time do you spend blogging weekly basis?
No, I am not a full-time blogger. I have my usual 9 to 6 job six days a week. I hardly get to spend 8 – 10 hrs a week for my blogging minus the shoots that I manage on weekends.
What is the information that you share with your readers on your blog?
I mostly write about fashion and lifestyle. Majority of my posts are about how to style a particular outfit and there are times when I talk about a different subject such as jewelry and other accessories.
As a blogger, what are the challenges you face? How you pass over them?
My biggest challenge is finding the time. Since I work six days a week, it becomes super taxing at times. As a blogger, I have to manage shoots, writing, editing and most of all, is always active on social media. Sundays I plan my shoots and on weekdays at midnight, you will find me writing for my blog. So yeah, that’s about it!
Everyone has a favorite blogger by whom they got inspired. Do you have one?
Before I started, I did get inspired by Juhi Godambe, Aashna Shroff and Nischita Rambabu.
What tools do you use to manage your social media presence and to increase user traffic?
I am super active on Instagram. That’s the right place for the bloggers, I feel. I ensure I interact with all my followers and always tend to their queries without fail.
What is the revenue source of your blog?
I get paid by brands at times when collaborating. Although, the majority of the brands work on barters. Also, I get paid sometimes for blog posts (sponsored) by other websites.
What is the big picture of your platform?
I am looking forward to becoming one of the most versatile fashion influencers for all the fashion lovers out there.
What is your best motivation line that inspires you?
Belief in yourself and Never give up!
Keep doing what you love and give it your best. Your day is not far!
Would you encourage other passionate people to start their blog and what would be a few practices you would suggest?
Yes, definitely. Everyone is unique and can bring something new on the table. So go ahead and show your talent to the world.
To all the newbies, I would say: Be CONSISTENT and ensure QUALITY!
