Tell us more about you and your blog

I wanted to see more diversity in fashion blogging; three years ago I started What Nicole Wore to make blogging more inclusive for women of color. I talk about style, beauty, and lifestyle topics.

What people don’t realize about blogging is…

     how much work goes into every stage behind the scenes.

What are 3 things you wish you knew about blogging before you started?

  1. That quantity doesn’t matter — having an engaged following is more important
  2. Planning ahead is a huge key to success
  3. Google and Pinterest will become your best friend as you learn new skills.

What’s been your most memorable moment as a blogger?

Getting to host a Kentucky Derby themed style event!
