Nerd About Town Blogger Interview

A little while ago I did a blog post on my three favourite bloggers. This is an interview with Stephanie from 'Nerd about town'.

What made you get into blogging?
I started blogging in 2013 as a beauty blogger. Even though I had a huge love of fashion, I was still at a stage in my life where I felt incredibly insecure and too scared to post full-length photos of myself.
It wasn’t until I joined the plus size/fat positivity community that I began to find my confidence and self-esteem and finally dress to express myself.
                          
In one sentence how would you describe yourself?
A fat, stylish outspoken trollop from South London.

In one sentence how would you describe your blog?
A clusterfuck of awesome styles, motivational writings, and humour!

What is the most interesting blog-related thing you have done/accomplished?
I recently became an ambassador for Reek Perfume and

Why did you choose fashion as your main niche?
I use fashion as a way to express myself and to also show other plus size ladies that we can wear whatever the hell we want and still look fierce.

Have your posts around self-esteem and body confidence helped yourself (I have definitely found them inspiring)?
Definitely; my posts are the products of epiphanies and lessons I’ve had to learn over the years – any time I feel low or short of confidence, I sometimes go back and re-read old posts!

What is one thing you wish you knew when you first started blogging?
I wish I would have known how competitive it could be. Not specifically me against other people; me against myself. When you have been blogging for as long as I have, you can sometimes put an unnecessary amount of pressure on yourself to have the ‘perfect’ blog and content but at the end of the day, it’s all about being true to yourself – that’s what people respond to.

What post are you most proud of?
I’m a fan of my ‘Black Lives Matter, Especially to Bloggers’ – it’s important for those who have the platform to speak up about important social issues do so.

Where do you see your blog in 5 years’ time?
Hopefully at a place that continually churns out awesome content. In 5 years I would have liked to model for a plus size brand or even have my own capsule collection – that is my dream!

You are gorgeous and have so much confidence, what is one piece of advice you would give to young women who are insecure or have body issues?
Thank you! Recognize that the path to self love is a long and tricky one and you will have good days and bad days. You have to have the belief that you DESERVE to be here. You DESERVE to wear whatever you want to wear and you DESERVE to be treated with the same respect that everyone else deserves. You matter, you are important and you are loved.

Lastly, what is the one piece of advice you would give to new bloggers?

I know that it can be a little intimidating as the sector is saturated with bloggers, but as long as you have passion for what you write about and produce good content, as well as engage with your readers, you will be fine!
