TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT 24 BLOGAZINE.
24 Blogazine is an online mag blog that caters to the beautiful, fashionable, healthy and news conscious twenty somethings around the world.
24B came to me in a dream. Yeah I know what you're thinking but ideas do arise in dreams. I started 24 Blogazine in 2009, inspired by a friend who was nudging me to do so. I then thought about it for a long time and finally dreamt the idea. I didn't want it to be like all the blogs out there and I decided to create an online magazine blog that would cater to ladies my age about fashion, beauty, health and news worthy material.
HOW DID YOU MONETIZE COLLEGE FASHION?
24B’s revenue comes from google ads and posts on brands that I feature.
HOW HAS BLOGGING AFFECTED YOUR CAREER?
Wow, great question! I would say it has helped me find my passion! I realize I love marketing/PR and I enjoy what I do to a degree that I sometimes forget I’m working when I’m out with friends or talking on the phone and I bring up 24B. Social Media has changed our generation and blogging has become the focal point that brings brands and people together more than ever before!
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW?
I’m so glad you asked this Q because I am working on something that I hope will bring the twenty something community in NYC and abroad together for one night of giving and learning about PCOS on Aug, 13th. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is the #1 hormonal disorder in the United States and many women who have it aren’t aware and I’m campaigning to make them aware of the symptoms and providing a resource – The Metabolism and Cholesterol Center in Cincinnati, OH where women get the help they need to get their life back in order. We will be selling recycled denim cuffs and crop tops for $20-$25 to raise funds for the hospital and everyone must pay $15 to attend. My goal is to raise $5,000 for the hospital. If you’d like to help me out in any way, email me at [email protected] Thanks!
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECE OF ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO ASPIRING BLOGGERS?
Hmmm… if you want to start a blog, think of something that impacts you in a way that you’ll want to talk about everyday for many years whether it’s providing health tips for people your age or street style blogging. You want to pick something that will allow you be creative and always able to come up with a different angle in blogging about that particular subject because readers love interesting and innovative things that will not only teach them, but inspire them to be better people!
