Other names that were instrumental to my blogging then were, Bamidele Michael (we would talk about different entertainment gist, I even put up my article on his gig (ShugaLounge.blogspot.com). Another guy, I wouldn’t forget in a haste is Lanre Akinpelu. I met Kemi Filani one of the famous entetainment bloggers at one of the organisations I interned with and Finally, I left entertainment blogging to the OGs because it was affecting my CGPA (I need to please papa with a First class)
I took a really long break and just about graduation, when the Instagram hype was too intense, I decided to upgrade my gadget, got addicted to IG and loved all the fashion stuff I saw on there and I thought of having my own blog name.
INTO FASHION BLOGGING NOW..
I’d say fashion bloggging picked me. My Area of specialisation was PR & ADVERTISING but guess what all the organisations I tried to intern with, didn’t give me a chance (Their loss). I grew up with the machines and needles and fabrics and I guessed it rubbed off on me. I’m quite artsy (got that from my original mama) and had a taste in my own choice of clothes. If my mum made me a dress with puffy sleeves (I’d rejected it). I wasn’t ungrateful but it’s that fashion thing going on…
MY FASHION BLOGGER INFLUENCERS
My very first fashion blogger influencer is CASSANDRA IKEGBUNE. I met her at a film festival Lights Camera Action in my 400l and we just chatted a bit. I don’t know if she can remember. She gave me her card and I looked her up on IG and voila! my love for fashion blogging grew-Thanks Cassie.
You must have read the double doze post I had with WANSHYGIRL (Double Dose: All Black x Colour Pop). We had been colleagues at the uni and we only bonded well just few weeks to graduating. How I wish we bonded well before then, we would have blown in this blogging sturv.. She introduced me to Desola Mako whom I have been a loyal follower ever since. Dear Dee I wanted to tell you in person to be my blogger mentor, I still need to know some parole…I loved Desola’s style, as soon as I clicked follow, I knew i’d be addicted to that page, her pose, style, outfit just almost everything!
I followed some other bloggers Ranti Onayemi Blanchard Mirabel Osuji, Grace Alex, Princess Audu,Ada Oguntodu aka StylebyAda ( I still keep following more) and here I am, thanking these people!Words will not be enough to say how much they influenced me in this blogging game and see how far I have come. I could say I’m grateful to God I didn’t quite and I have done a good job so far. There’s still more to come and I’m still searching deeper because Bloggers are the next big thing in the business environment.
I know you would ask about my blog- The next post would be on how I finally settled for THE LAZY OUTFITTER as a permanent blog name.
