Happy Monday morning everyone! We are starting a new series to help everyone get to know the members of the Charleston Blog Society a little better. We all read lots of blogs but how often do we really get to hear about the voice behind it? To kick off our interview series we sat down with Kate Wilson of Boss Lady Jobs.
Launched just a few weeks ago, Boss Lady Jobs is a unique concept as it focuses solely on highlighting women with creative jobs. Kate herself is quite the interesting lady. An avid traveler and a full time marketer with a passion for creativity she brings her warm and glowing personality to The Charleston Blog Society. Read on below to learn more about Kate and follow all of her adventures on Instagram – here.
1. What inspired you to start a blog and how long have you been blogging?
Growing up in relatively small towns in the southeast I never really had professional women role models that I personally knew. In school children are pushed into traditional fields and taught to aspire only to be lawyers and doctors and focus on how much money you can make. No one ever teaches you to explore what you really enjoy and few people realize there’s plenty of money to be made in the creative space. Charleston is an amazing little ecosystem full of women who are creative and making a huge dent in the digital corridor. My blogs sole purpose is to highlight women in these fields.
2. What has been your proudest blogging moment?
I just learned that some of my posts will be featured on Charleston Grit and it is so exciting to me to see these special women in the spotlight Grit can provide. Shout out to the fabulous women running the show, Jessie parks and Madison Miller!
3. What is something you would like to learn more about?
I’m SO curious and love to travel. I would love to learn more languages. My goal is to be beginner conversational in Icelandic by my next visit in the summer of 2016.
4. Favorite place to sit and blog in the city?
I do my best work late at night which means I’m at home in bed but for early morning sessions no one has a better breakfast than the acai bowl at Cafe Medley on Sullivan’s.
5. If you could grab coffee with any blogger who would it be?
That’s such a hard question! I feel lucky enough to be a part of this community of bloggers but I would LOVE to have lunch with Jenny Walton. She is the coolest blogger and illustrator making amazing work for some huge brands. I would love to sit down and just watch her work! Check out her Instagram @jennymwalton
