A Tour Through Blogland

A few weeks ago Christie from KikiMac invited me to be apart of a tour through blogland. Unfortunately at that time I was unable to participate so I was extremely appreciative when I had a second chance at joining in the fun when Kate from Taffeta & Tullips invited me to be apart of hers. Kate's blog is an amazing spot to find food, fashion, and decor inspiration that will help you elevate your everyday in a very attainable way. Kate probably has one of the only blogs that has made me whip up a spontaneous batch of cookies just because her post that day looked so delicious, without being too much of a hassle of course. The attainable quality of everything she shares is what always keeps me going back for more. If you are looking for a blog to help you make your everyday life just a little bit more special, I highly recommend checking out her site. I mean if a busy mom of four can do it I think we can find the time too!

What are you currently working on?

November is definitely shaping up to be a very busy month for me. At the moment I’m currently working on a few collaborations behind the scenes that I’m so excited to be able to be apart of. They have certainly taken me a bit outside my comfort zone but in the best possible way. I’m also currently working on a few website redesigns for myself and a few other businesses & bloggers. Lastly I am working on expanding MINCK | CO. with new series & content. Part of this growth will include adding a few contributors to the sites roster who will share their particular expertise with my readers.

How does your work differ from others in it’s genre?

My work has a lot of elements that are similar to other lifestyle bloggers but there are also a few distinct differences that I think set it apart. I believe it’s similar in that I am a young woman sharing my passion & insight with others of similar interest. It’s unique in that some of the topics that are covered are not what you’d necessarily expect from a lifestyle blog. Two things that I have been fascinated by for a while are technology & startups. Everyday we have new technology & companies that are popping up and changing the way we live our lives. I love being able to highlight some of them on my site, giving people a chance to know about them before they become really mainstream. 

How does your writing & creative process work?

When I first started my blog I was pretty strategic about the space I wanted to create. I spent months figuring out exactly what it was that drew me to various sites that I frequently visited. Once I had an understanding of what I liked and didn't like, I tried to pull it all together to create a site that felt authentic to who I am and what I would like to read. One thing that I really love about certain blogs is that they don't tell you everything about the person behind the blog upfront. I love when a blog feels like a slowly unfolding story where little bits & pieces of who someone is comes together over a long period of time. That's how I wanted my site to feel. I didn't really want it to be a personal diary but I did want to have bits of who I am come through in my writing. I try to give my readers a hint of who I am and things going on in my life while still sharing unique content that you won't find everywhere else. For daily posts I like to stay as close to my initial vision as possible. Once I come up with a post idea I usually write a few different versions of the text until it has that perfect balance. 

Why do you write & create what you do?

I’ve always known I wanted to start something of my own one day, so I guess that this little site of mine was kind of my first step towards that. Before starting my site, I always felt like I had a unique set of skills & insights that I wasn’t exactly putting to use in my daily life. I’m pretty reserved when it comes to talking about myself or networking so starting MINCK | CO. was a way of exploring a side of myself that I’d always been hesitant to really put out there. 

So I know this post was a bit different from what I usually share on the site but I hope you guys enjoyed it! If you like the concept behind a tour through blogland be sure to check out these these talented bloggers who will be sharing their answers next monday! 

  Simply Elegant began in the winter of 2014 as a way to keep some creativity in my life while I was busy at college taking classes, writing papers and doing homework. I aim to bring a fresh and unique perspective to the blog world.  On Simply Elegant I work to highlight the little things that help to brighten the day and bring more joy to life. I'll write about fresh flowers from the garden, a new purse that caught my eye, or a perfect iced coffee. I love finding new small brands and companies to share on the blog and I place importance on unique and well made pieces.

  My name is Maru and I'm a blogger based in Mexico City with a love for fashion, design, decor and everything in between. I started blogging in June 2013 to combine those passions in my life, but it has lead me to so much more, like the idea to start my own business. When I'm not blogging, you will find me spending time with my family, friends and my sweet rescue dog Candy. I try to live my life not settling, but chasing my dreams no matter what, every one of them. I love reading, dancing and singing (not so well I might add). Above all, I believe in inner beauty and working towards improving from the inside - out.
