Morning babes! This week I interviewed Linsey Sijmons from the blog ‘POSE-BLOG‘. Linsey is a freelance art director and graphic designer. She always had a big passion for fashion and followed many bloggers, but one day Linsey decided to start a blog on her own. The creativity in Linsey pictures and blog post make her unique than other bloggers and that’s one of the mean reasons why I love her blog.
Let’s get to know her a bit better… Enjoy!
1. Can you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Linsey Sijmons, I’m a 25 years young online influencer from Amsterdam. I’m the proud owner of my digital baby POSE-BLOG.com and a freelance art director and graphic designer. I worked for I Love Fashion News.com and newspaper De Telegraaf is my biggest client at the moment.
2. What was the reason why you started your blog?
Honestly? Out of frustration. I started my blog while I was still studying art direction. I’m just so addicted to fashion, which wasn’t really part of my study. And I followed a lot of blogs before I started my own. Then I thought: hey, I can do this too! That’s when POSE-BLOG.com was born.
3. How would you describe your clothing style?
I always say “feminine with a rough edge”. But it actually depends on my mood when I wake up. Sometimes I can wear a pink dress with sky high heels and the other day I can wear a boyfriend jeans with cut out boots and a gigantic hat.
4. How do you keep coming up with material/content for your blog? Many people struggle with coming up with different articles/posts
Since creativity is one of my strongest points in life, it’s not a struggle for me. Sometimes I come up with ideas while I’m in the shower, or I wake up at night and think YES, this is an awesome idea! I find my inspiration in actually anything! From people on the streets, to cool Instagram accounts, tv shows or even from some conversations I have with friends. My tip: keep your eyes open 24/7!
5. What are you favorite brands and shops?
My ultimate favorite: Acne Studios. I’m OBSESSED with this brand! I was in NYC two weeks ago (for the first time in my life) and discovered the most awesome shop ever: Dover Street Market. Which you can also find in London, Bejing and Tokyo.
6. What’s now on your wish list?
On top of my wishlist is this ah-mazing “Velocite” lammy coat from (3 guesses…) Acne Studios. I’m also searching for the perfect over the knee boots which I haven’t found yet. They’re just perfect for Fall/Winter!
8. If someone was interested in blogging, what would be a few things you would suggest? Tips!
Have fun with it but also take it very serious! Because a lot of people underestimate blogging. Work hard play hard. Make sure to find your niche and let this specialty come forward in your blog. You have to do what you do best. For example: my specialty is art direction (creativity). So I make sure every post on POSE-BLOG.com has a good concept and is a little bit different than the rest. Last tip: use social media! This is the key to your amount of visitors 🙂
Enjoy your day!
