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?
Shehrezade: I started out about 8- 9 years ago when there were very few creators in the country. Now, we’ve grown drastically and there’s content for everyone. Now it’s an actual career option for people which I think is amazing.
Ex: What would be your calling in a parallel universe? (Alternate career options)
Shehrezade: I think it would have to be law. I’ve studied law, I’m a B.A LLB.
Ex: If you were stranded on an island, what are the 3 gadgets you’d take along?
Shehrezade: I would take my iPad, my vlog camera to document it all, and amazon echo for entertainment.
Ex: A technology you wished you’d invented?
Shehrezade: Anything that’s Apple. I feel like I am a complete Apple geek!
Ex: What’s been your favorite encounter with a fan so far? (DMs included!)
Shehrezade: One which I will always remember and cherish is my relationship with Ruchi who is a subscriber that I met at my very first meet and greet at the first YouTube fanfest and she was a cancer survivor then. She told me that she watched my videos through chemo and a couple of years later she also won a makeover contest on my channel and I got to spend the day with her and give her a makeover which is amazing!
Ex: Social media trolling is seeing an upward rise. Do you think this only increases with the popularity of an Influencer? How does one tackle this situation?
Shehrezade: So I think that my approach with trolling is pretty similar. I usually respond to any kind of trolling. I never let it slide. I always tell them that this is not cool, that there’s always a polite way of putting a point forward.
Ex: What does success mean to you?
Shehrezade: I think success means to me being happy you of doing what I do and being good at my job.
Ex: What according to you will be the next big trend in the Lifestyle blogging industry?
