Ex: Tell us about a change you’ve seen in the digital blogging space since you started out your journey? How has this space evolved?
When I started blogging 6 years ago, the term blogging wasn’t very popular in India back then.It was initially blogs with a lot more written information, which then slowly moved to platforms like Instagram and Facebook for images, and then evolved into longer videos on YouTube and IGTV. When I started, I never thought I’d be creating such videos. This would have to be the biggest change for me.
Ex: Can you give us an insight into social media platforms that only an Influencer can know?
Honestly, I think social media is different for everyone. We all have our different ways of consuming content, we all have our own favourite platform, our own particular time of the day that we like to post, etc. I think the biggest insight would be consistency and interaction.
Ex: If you were stranded on an island, what are the 3 gadgets you’d take along?
my phone, portable Wifi & a power bank
Ex: A technology you wished you’d invented?
I would have said the internet but I can’t imagine being even remotely close to inventing that so Netflix, maybe.
Ex: What’s been your favorite encounter with a fan so far? (DMs included!)
It would have to be the first time someone recognised me in public. She came up to me and brought her mom along too and they both told me how much they love me and what I do. And I was super shy and nervous, but it’s one encounter that I’ll always cherish.
Ex: What does success mean to you?
For me, doing what I love because it would make me happy and being able to make a living out of it, is success for me.
Ex: Do you think Influencer Marketing is a fad? Where do you see this space in years to come?
As a creator myself, Influencer Marketing is pretty much what my job entails. And I see first hand what it can do. If you’re a creator who has an organic following that loves your style/content and truly takes your recommendations seriously, influencer marketing can work wonders for the brands that work with you. So it’s definitely not a fad, and given the way social media is growing today, I only see this growing bigger and bigger over the next few years.
Ex: As Fashion-Tech is on the rise, what is your take on this new style of couture? Do you think it’s here to stay?
I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. I’m the kind of person that takes some time to get used to new changes. It’s definitely very interesting, but maybe I’ll grow to love it if it does stay.
Ex: How would you define your personal style?
My style is usually pretty experimental. Currently, being at home most of the time, I’ve been loving classic fits. I’m all about basic, well-fitted pieces paired together with statement shoes and accessories right now.
