Tell our readers about yourself and your blog
I’m a single momma living in Los Angeles, CA but I am originally from Georgia! I love blogging about fashion and beauty on Simply Classy Cassie but I also talk about motherhood and nutrition from time to time!
Tell us how you first got into blogging
I first got into blogging when I was pregnant with my daughter. I lived far away from my family and wanted an easy way to document my pregnancy for all of them to see! I never knew it could grow into what it has today!
How did you establish your “theme” or brand?
I honestly just fell into it! I wasn’t posting trying to grow a blog or brand, but slowly people started following me that I didn’t know and asking about my outfits and makeup! I’ve just stayed true to who I am and what I love and that has become my brand.
Where do you find the inspiration for your blog posts?
I love finding inspiration all around the city. Living in L.A. there is so much to see and it is all so inspiring! I also love traveling to get new perspectives and to refresh my mind.
What do you think is the best strategy to get more traffic to your blog?
What’s your favorite social media platform?
I love Instagram the most because I get to interact with my followers the most on Instagram. I love being able to share my day to day life on Insta-Stories as well as my curated images on the platform. I especially love interacting with my followers through comments and DMs.
