1- Hello Alex, can you please tell us a bit about you?
Hi! I’m a 22 year old New England blogger. I moved back to my crazy small (and cold!) town from Miami so I’m definitely adjusting to New England life this year. In my free time, I love taking my two puppies to new beaches, making a crazy cocktail, or shopping online!
2- What are your focus areas and why?
My blog (and Instagram) focuses on fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and travel. I like to talk about anything pretty, fun, and classy! These are the types of blogs I love reading because they’re exciting so I want to share those areas of my life with my readers. I only recently added a travel section so I’m really excited to continue expanding that (check out my most recent post here).
3- Where do you think your work is making an impact?
There’s not a ton of New England bloggers out there so I like to think that blog readers in this area can read more specific content that they can implement.
4- Can you tell us about your blog?
My blog is called Chasing Daisies because daisies remind me of anything pretty and sweet yet authentic. Going after the simple things is often overlooked but so essential. I strive to give readers a taste of these “daisies” in all different areas that are beautiful yet attainable.
5- What were some of the biggest challenges you encountered while working to launch it?
I actually changed the name within the first few months! My blog started off focused on sororities and switched to New England lifestyle and fashion so that was a huge change. Ultimately, after I decided to make the switch writing and photography both got a lot easier because I can now deal with topics I currently am dealing with and care about.
6- What the word “Lifestyle” means to you?
Lifestyle is anything you might deal with on a daily basis! On my lifestyle page I write about entertainment, gifts, dates, decor, my dogs, etc.
7- Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
I plan to be living in a city (Boston or New York), be blogging full-time, and be traveling at least once every two months!
8- What can you tell young women who are pursuing their dreams?
The biggest lesson for me so far was to be realistic about what I can accomplish in a certain amount of time but also try to do what I really love. I still work a regular job while blogging now but am able to see my progress and do something I love which is awesome!
9- What are you most excited about at the moment?
I’m really excited about the rate my Instagram & Twitter followers are growing recently. It’s so encouraging to get such nice comments on my photos and make some awesome connections with my followers! I’m also looking forward to getting some awesome pics this summer.
10- The last word or final thoughts?
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me so far! I’m really excited to be blogging (I totally recommend it to literally everyone – it’s so much fun!) and I’m excited to see where this goes.
