Our ‘blogger of the week’ features are back. We will be featuring bloggers every Thursday as from today. Let us introduce to you, Faeema Sader, of The Sparkling Labrynth.
- What inspired the name of your blog?
The name of my blog was inadvertently inspired by the movie Pan’s Labyrinth. And by my own thoughts that life is a huge maze that we all walk through, beautiful in its confusion and it eventually leads us to where we are meant to be.
- How long have you been blogging for?
I have been blogging for about a year now.
- What difficulties did you come across when you first started blogging?
Mostly figuring out the technicalities are challenging. But you overcome that quickly and then its just the fun stuff.
- What do you think new bloggers need to know about blogging that most people don’t?
New bloggers need to know that as much as your blog will change and grow, it will also change you. You learn so much, not just new things but about yourself as well.
- What would you say has been a highlight of your blogging career thus far?
The highlights for me are in the little things, a compliment here or there or when someone tells you they enjoy reading your blog. I suppose brand wise getting involved in the Ford EcoSport promotion was lots of fun.
- Who are your favourite bloggers?
My favourites are Leigh from lipglossismylife.com and of course Brett Robson. It comes so naturally to them
- Which is the most read blog post on your blog and why do you think people like it?
My most read post is How To: organize your underwear. I think people love ‘How To’ posts and organizing tips.
- What else do you do besides blogging?
I also do features for small magazines and my Event Planning business is something I am slowly building.
- Where do you see your blog in the next two years?
I see it evolving into more and more of what I love and learn as I go along.
- Do you look at your blog as a business, hobby or as a portfolio?
It started out as a hobby, and now I supposed grew into a portfolio, a piece of me and my life. It isn’t really at the point of business yet.
