Blogger Spotlight

It was a gorgeous day out here in Calgary! The sun was shining as bright as can be and the temperature hi about 9C (that's about 48F)!!

What a wonderful way to end a week-end:)

Now, I meant to post about this sooner.......but I'm doing it now~

Today, I'm introducing a new feature that I'll be having on The Creative Mixx.

Now as you know I've posted many interviews; from photographers to jewelry artists and fashion designers to musicians. I'll continue to introduce you to new people each week, but I wanted to get to know the people behind the blogs that I currently (or will begin to) read.
So I'll be having a "Blogger Spotlight" on The Creative Mixx. Sometimes I may contact you, or you can send me an email if you're interested in appearing on my blog~

The first ever blogger that I plan on introducing you to Gotham Hipster (of Gotham Hipster)

It's a lovely blog that celebrates many "loves" - fashion, vintage-findings and food. I discovered Gotham Hipster through the Independent Fashion Bloggers social networking site. Updated fairly regularly, expect to see a lot of divine photos showcasing Gotham Hipster's fab "street style", her love for cupcakes and cafes, fashion magazine covers & fashion editorial.

1. How long have you been blogging?
I’ve been blogging for about a year.

2. Is "Gotham Hipster" your first attempt at blogging?
Yes. But it’s evolved quite a bit from when I first began. It’s my first official attempt at blogging, but I’ve been writing my entire life.

3. Please let my readers know what your blog is all about?
I document why I think New York is so brilliant. I celebrate all it has to offer; the delectable meals which I consume, scavenging to find that hole-in-the-wall vintage gem, and all the interesting and culturally unique people I observe on a daily basis.

4. Many bloggers start up for many reasons, tell me a bit about why you started a blog?
I wanted a format to combine my aspirations of a career in fashion journalism with my love of New York.

5. What steps have you taken to promote your blog and gain readership?
I make sure I’m up to date on all of my favorite blogs and scavenge the web to find new ones I’m not familiar with. I leave a lot of comments. If you’re leaving a comment worth reading, chances are they’ll be interested in reading your blog.

6. Name one item that you can't live without?
My red lipstick is my signature- without it I feel naked.

7. Do you have any advice for newbies starting out?
Site all of your sources
