Today we would like to introduce you to lifestyle blogger Madison of The Southern Edge. Madison’s blog began with her love of all things style and fashion. As she began to travel and experience different cultures, foods and people her blog expanded to include more of what she came to love. A talented blogger Madison has been lucky enough to cover New York and Charleston Fashion Week! Follow along with Madison over on Instagram!
What inspired you to start blogging and how long have you been blogging?
Well, I have always had a very strong interest in style and fashion (so much so that I went to school for it) but I never knew what specific part of the industry I wanted to work in. I have many friends that have blogged for quite some time now, and I have seen the opportunities they’ve been given due to blogging. After seeing their success, I knew that I wanted those same opportunities, and that blogging could help me get there. (And if nothing else, it’s a ton of fun and I get to meet fabulous new people!) I have only been blogging since April! I decided to get serious about it after Charleston Fashion Week.
What has been you proudest blogging moment?
I don’t know if this is lame, but the first time a major retailer liked an instagram photo I got very excited. I also love when local stores regram and retweet my posts…I just think blogging has such great cross-promotion potential, and it’s exciting to see that happening.
What is something you would like to learn more about?
Oh my gosh. Everything. Graphic design, social media marketing, SEO….I could literally go on forever, but those are at the top of my list.
Favorite place to sit and blog in the city?
I haven’t found my favorite place in Charleston yet. When I moved in and didn’t have wifi yet, my pool was my office (there was wifi at the pool)…so that’s not too shabby I guess?
If you could grab coffee with any blogger who would it be?
Any blogger, from anywhere? Adam Gallagher. He’s incredibly well-dressed, and his posts are always very witty…and seeing as how he’s “blogger-famous” he obviously knows a thing or two about promotion.
