Every Monday we bring you a feature on a talented blogger who inspires us. This week we are excited to feature London from London, Like the City, a young and talented lifestyle blogger from San Diego. Her voice is the perfect mix of young, chic, adventurous and coffee crazed (which we always can relate to). We found her through Twitter, and knew she was an account to watch. Read more from London here.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?
Hi there! My name is London- I’m 24, a total leo, and love living in San Diego. I’m all about beaching, being outside, making stuff (both food and projects) learning about health & natural remedies, trying new restaurants, and generally having fun.
I studied Communications and Human Rights at UC San Diego, and currently work full-time in marketing, while taking on fun freelance social media and content creation gigs on the side.
What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?
Creative, silly, laid-back
What Profession other than yours would you love to attempt?
Definitely floral design…I took classes before just for fun! And interior design, party planning, or table styling for events, too.
What is your favorite quote?
Oh wow, I have way too many. Right now I’m really connecting with “Just take a breath, let go, and be open to what happens”. But, my “WORDS” Pinterest board has a bunch of my favorite quotes and phrases to live by!
What inspired your blog?
After having a few food and travel blogs throughout college, I was ready to start fresh with a blog where I could write about anything and everything, without limitations. It’s become a place to really explore and share my growing interests and document life as a 20-something in San Diego.
I’m visually oriented so definitely Instagram, but I’ve actually made some close real-life friends through Twitter, so it has a special place in my heart too.
Where do you find inspiration for blog posts?
All over the place! Anything I come across (from things I see and do, articles I stumble upon, etc.) that inspires me and I think my readers will love.
What do you think it is about your blog that keeps people coming back for more?
Ha! I’d like to think the quality of my photos and casual, real “voice”, but who knows! I try to share cool new things and create content that inspires.
How does a brand get your attention for a feature?
Usually through email, sometimes social media. But if I already absolutely love a product or brand and really want to feature them, I don’t hesitate to reach out to them first!
I really enjoy getting to style, take and edit photos. I also love the totally unique sense of community it provides, and the fact that my little piece of the internet will be around to look back on for years to come.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
If only I knew the answer! Hopefully, traveling around, creating, writing, working with my hands, surrounded by love and feeling absolutely fulfilled!
In your opinion, what separates a great blog from an unsuccessful blog?
Passion and dedication. You have to truly enjoy it to stick with it and be consistent. But a clean layout and quality photos never hurt, either. J
