I'm pretty excited to finally have a fashion blogger featured here on A Is For Ayla! Although I don't post fashion or ootds I do love to read them, this months featured Blogger does tons of lovely outfit posts! On that note I shall introduce my featured blogger for the month of January, Kristy from Smugpug.
In less than 50 words tell us a little about yourself and your blog.
I am a 24 year old ginger style enthusiast from Suffolk - the farm county. I adore the countryside and the little things in life make me happy. I use smugpug to share my style and love of fashion with the other beautiful bloggers out there.
When and why did you initially start blogging?
I started blogging in 2011 but only as of late have I got into my own routine and used it to the best of my ability. I originally started blogging as not a lot of people appreciate someones style in the countryside, so I decided to share it online instead, to not feel like the "odd one out".
Do you have any tips or ideas for someone wishing to start a successful blog?
The usual tip would be "be yourself". Which i definitely agree with however, having a good camera and someone willing to stand in all weather conditions to take your outfit photo's helps! Plus, I think its important not to feel self conscious, blogging is a way to express yourself.
Do you feel you've taken anything out of being part of the blogger community?I have met some lovely people although I wish I could find more local bloggers in East Anglia. I hope to meet new people and attend more events this year. Every blogger is lovely.
