5W1H BLOGGER INTERVIEW WITH KATE FROM CLEAR THE WAY

Tuesday, April 8, 2014


Most of the photos for my blog are sourced from artists online or taken by myself. My awesome friend Olivia usually takes my outfit photos. 

I was very ill a few years ago before I discovered that I had Celiac Disease and gave up gluten. I was spending a lot of time online browsing fashion sites and home decor sites, but my time did not feel productive. I'm a pretty active person naturally and I felt like I was not doing anything constructive which really bothered me. I figured that starting a blog would allow me to browse the sites I enjoyed browsing but would also force me to create something and make my online time more valuable. It turned into a real passion that I've kept up even after becoming healthy and active again. 

Most of the time I am inspired by my surroundings. I like taking long walks or bike rides to get some good thinking time. On these walks/rides I generally find inspiration visually around me or from whatever I was dwelling upon in my thoughts. I also enjoy sitting in coffee shops and reading. For the blog, I am inspired by other bloggers, street style I see around me, home decor magazines, and things like that. Oh yes, and social media too. I'm constantly finding and sharing inspiration on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter

I plan ahead. I am the sort of person who likes to keep busy so I take on a lot and if I didn't plan ahead, I would get totally swamped. Right now I'm taking skills classes, working two jobs, volunteering and keeping up blogging full time. If I didn't set up an editorial calendar to follow, I would be lost!
