Today we would like to introduce you to blogger Aimee Mars! Make sure to check out her blog and visit her Instagram here.
1. What inspired you to start a blog and how long have you been blogging?
Just months after my clothing line in New York City came to a screeching halt I found myself happily home with a newborn but desperately seeking a creative side project to call my own. Though it started as a project to obtain control at a time in my life when everything else felt as though it were spinning wildly out of control, I found my site to be a great outlet for defining a fresh direction in life and establishing new dreams.
2. What has been your proudest blogging moment?
I wanted to learn every aspect there was to running a website and blogging so I took it upon myself to design the site, code it, and run it in entirety. My proudest blogging moment was actually figuring out how to code and seeing the site live for the very first time. It’s a moment I get to relive often because every time I want to add a new feature, page or design, it requires more code. I’m still completely stunned it works when I hit publish.
3. What is something you would like to learn more about?
Honestly, I would like to learn more about writing as basic as it may sound. I always want my posts to be elegantly written with my true voice and personality shining through, but also have them be grammatically correct as well. Grammar can sometimes be a challenge to say the least.
4. Favorite place to sit and blog in the city?
My family and I moved to Charleston less than 7 months ago from NYC (read: I haven’t completely found my “favorite” spot yet) but in an effort to replace some of our city haunts we’ve been visiting many of the great cafes and quiet wine bars around town. Currently I’d have to rank St. Alban as one of my favorite blogging spots, and I’ll willingly visit many times just to confirm!
5. If you could grab coffee with any blogger who would it be?
The blogger I’d most like to grab coffee with at the moment would be Jillian Harris (her blog is also called Jillian Harris). I found her site and Instagram feed, which are topnotch, long before I knew she was the bachelorette or a host on Love It or List It, but I was hooked instantly. She seems extremely warm and friendly and I always love her content as well as how she presents it.
