5 Questions With Black Southern Belle

We can’t wait to introduce you to wedding blogger Michiel of Black Southern Belle. Read on below to learn how she got her start in blogging and make sure to follow her Instagram here!BSB-Feb-2016-153
1. What inspired you to start a blog and how long have you been blogging?
I was inspired to start blogging as I went through the process of decorating my home in Maryland and planning my wedding in Charleston. As a low country native, I wanted to find inspiration of truly southern inspired weddings and homes with African American images. I was not able to find such inspiration after asking all of my Southern Belle friends in the South and who were transplants. With that in mind, I found the URL blacksouthernebelle.com was available and decided to start to launch the digital magazine. I have been blogging since March 2015 and haven’t looked back since.

2. What has been your proudest blogging moment?
My proudest moment blogging was when I was featured by Draper James with a food and lifestyle inspired story. Let’s just say a lot of biscuits were involved and who doesn’t love Reese Witherspoon.

3. What is something you would like to learn more about?
I would like to learn more about web design, I design and edit my blog myself and have become obsessive about it. I would love to learn to make my own app for the site one day down the line, right now I am just trying to survive the Charleston allergy season 🙂

4. Favorite place to sit and blog in the city?
My favorite place to blog in the city is any furniture or home decor store. I get so much inspiration from them and not to mention content ideas. I always get a great post when I visit any store in the area. If I could decorate my home every few months I would, but my husband’s might not be too happy about that.

5. If you could grab coffee with any blogger who would it be?
If I could grab coffee with any blogger it would be Erika Ward of Blue Label Bungalow, I love her design style and love how truly southern she keeps the homes she designs.
