Every Monday, Bloggerbabes.com will be presenting a Blogger Babe Of The Week, a featured blogger that we will interview to get to know what motivates her to blog.
Our featured Blogger of the Week is Lindsey W, Editor in Chief, Stylust Magazine.
Lindsey: Stylust was born in January 2011. I had previously worked for another online fashion magazine and wanted to pursue the path of having my own online platform to connect with women who were interested in the same things that I was. With the premise of supporting local independent fashion designers, companies, and insiders, we started out mostly staying within Vancouver, then branched out to include other major Canadian cities like Edmonton, Calgary, and Toronto. Until recently our content was exclusively Canadian. We now have expanded our content and topics covered to include all of North America with shopping local remaining at the forefront.
Lindsey: The most rewarding thing I would have to say is the constant flow of new knowledge. The internet and the blogging industry has changed so much in recent years and is changing everyday, so I am constantly learning. I’m never bored, that’s for sure!
Lindsey: I hope that readers will take away that fashion and function are not mutually exclusive, and that fashion and function don’t have to be boring either. Our reader really is the everyday woman and we aim to bring style and real life together to make women feel fabulous everyday.
Lindsey: I wouldn’t say it is difficult to assemble a team but it is hard to maintain. A lot of people approach me and tell me that they want to be involved but they quickly realize that this job is not all glamourous and walk away. Managing an online publishing platform is no easy feat, you have to work really hard. We have, however, been fortunate to have a few really awesome team members since we started over two years ago, and its great to work with like minded people and build strong connections that can sometimes turn into great friendships.
