First up… Ciao Flamingo.
Featured Blogger | April
The French beauty Charlène, of Ciao Flamingo, has accepted the first feature + I’m honoured to have her on-board. Her blog is an entertaining read + she has a pretty awesome bunch of followers. She’s an active IG friend of mine + her grams inspire me every day. From fashion + travel, to lunch time treats + catgrams, her feed is clean, cute + full of joy.
Tell me about yourself + your blog Ciao Flamingo.
My name is Charlène, but you can call me Cha! I am a 22 year old girl, passionate by creation. After two years of law studies, I decided to be part of the digital world with my digital marketing studies.
In ciaoflamingo.com, you can discover my world and all the things I truly like. It’s all about fashion, beauty and lifestyle. I like sharing my new discoveries, my favourites. I wish I can make my blog a positive, pink and beautiful world.
How did you get into blogging?
I learn a lot by blogging. I learnt about organisation (I really had to deal with this problem!) By joining this wonderful adventure, I met lots of amazing people. Like Leanne xx
What drew you to using WordPress as your blog platform?
I dug into blogging without any knowledge or cognition. I even think I googled “how to start a blog”. Then, I discover this “formidable” WordPress (fantastic!)
Do you have a favourite plugin that you use?
Because Instagram is my favourite social media, I would say Instagram! I spend a lot of time on it and Instagram Feed is perfect to show my instapage on my blog. Must have for all the instagram addicts.
You seem to enjoy exploring + discovering new places (and taking seriously cute street images). Is there anywhere that you visited recently that captured your heart?
My last trip was Zagreb, in Croatia, to visit my twin sister. She is studying there! I loved this city! However, my heart is beating for Vancouver, last summer.
How much time do you spend working on your blog + do you have a process?
I dedicate more and more time for my blog! I’m trying so hard to be punctual. I post two articles per week (the first one every Wednesday or Thursday, and one during the weekend). If you count the time I spend taking pictures, I would say that it’s represent about 6 to 7 hours per week.
What do you do in your spare time besides exploring + styling wonderful outfits.
I am a passionate person! Whether it is to take pictures, to paint, draw or about music. I also give my time to an association that I carry with my heart. This association organises wonderful camps for young people who want to discover the mountains. I obviously continue my studies in the digital marketing field. Although, I will start my new internship next week! It’s a new challenge for me and my organisation system! Haha! I don’t have time to be bored!
Do you have a favourite blogger that inspires you?
Do you have any advice for newcomers to the blogging world?
Do it! Just go and do it! It is an amazing experience. I think the most difficult thing about blogging, is to start. Don’t be scared, try!
