Hey everyone it’s Zainab, welcome or welcome back to Zainab Chats! Today, I’m going to interview one of my favourite bloggers: Olivia from Olivia Lucie Blake Blog. We are going to be talking how she started her blog, her new small business, SEO and more. Let’s jump into the interview!
Thanks so much for agreeing to be interviewed, to start , can you tell my readers a little bit about yourself?
Hi! My names Olivia, i’m 26 and I live in the UK. Social media and digital content creation are my passions! I really love creating and publishing which is why being a blogger is a perfect job for me! I have recently started to get into hand lettering and calligraphy and find it so relaxing, so I do that whenever i can! ☺️
Your blog is very well established and looks very professional, how long have you been blogging for, and what made you want to start your blog?
I started out as a beauty blog and after a year i took a whole 4 years off blogging! I came back in July 2020 right in the midst of the pandemic. I started writing about life, the world and everything in between. I soon established a platform and have been loving building and growing my blog ever since. Its taken a while to get to the point I am today & I still feel like there are areas where I can improve!
Would you consider blogging your full time job or do you have any other hobbies, I’ve noticed you’ve been selling some digital portraits on Etsy!
I’d consider it in a few years once I am getting a steady income from my site but at the moment no. I can run my blog around my full time job and it works great like that for me at the moment.
Yes! Digital illustrations are a new hobby for me! Starting a small business is scary but I have been shown so much love already!
You also released a new SEO Guide to help bloggers, what made you decide to create it, and what is one of your biggest SEO tips you can share?
I am so excited for the guide to launch as I know it will be so helpful for other bloggers who need help in that area. As previously mentioned, I love creating content and if I can do what I love and help others thats a plus for me☺️
My biggest tip would be to do research before you post. Google Trends and Pinterest are great places to see if the topic you’ve chosen to write about is relevant!
Thanks so much to Olivia for agreeing to be interviewed!
Before I go, I just wanted to let you know – we hit 300 blog followers! Thanks so much for all the support, since I answered assumptions for 100 followers, and answered questions for 200, I decided since I’ve answered anonymous questions before, for 300 followers I will answer anonymous assumptions!
