Day FOUR and FBFF Questions

February 4, 2011

First and foremost...today is National Wear Red Day for the American Heart Association. I am doing my part to raise awareness to fight heart disease in women and hope that each of you would consider doing the same.

Today also brings another round of question and answers from Katy of ModlyChic, if you are interested in joining this fabulous group of ladies, check out her blog here.

1. With all the blogging events out there how do you determine which ones to participate in and which ones to avoid?

This is an easy one...I really try and sign up for ALL the events I know of benefiting a cause and to help raise awareness, like above. I recently became a participant in Everybody, Everywear because I love the idea behind it and the 30 for 30 challenge is to prove to myself I can!

2. Be honest, have you ever jumped on the bandwagon of some blogging movement/event for the wrong reasons? How did that turn out?

I can honestly say I have never done this. Prime example...this is my first time doing the 30 for 30 challenge even though it has been done 2 or 3 times in the past. I sat on the sidelines and watched a lot of other blogs I follow take the plunge, but at the time I wasn't ready to commit. I finally bit the bullet for the Winter 30 for 30 and so far, so good!

3. How do you give your own flair to a blog event while still maintaining the general mission and purpose?

I just try and be myself and dress the way I always do, only with the added pieces that are part of that particular challenge.

4. When determining the best content for your blog what criterion do you keep in mind?

I try and keep in mind the things I would like to read and outfits I would love if I were reading somebody else's blog. I like adding content from my everyday life (like how I am feeling and what is going on in my life at that time) because I feel that makes me more "real".

5. While everything will not suit your blog, how do you try and support your fellow bloggers who are participating in something worthwhile but not your style?

I try and always comment and cheer my fellow bloggers on... the last 30 for 30 challenge many people were complaining when it was getting towards the end and I always made sure to let them know that the challenge was almost over and how rewarding it would be for them to finish. I find that Twitter (@AFashionFix) is also a very useful support system in sending quick and easy encouraging messages!

  12. Wow, that's a lot of red! Good thing you look fantastic in it! :) I like your answer to the fourth question a lot..."If I weren't me, would I read my blog?" We should always try to answer "yes" to that question, or else we've strayed too far and have lost ourselves in the fashion blogosphere!
