They’re a resource for bloggers, entrepreneurs and creative types offering workshops in branding, blogging and graphic design…OH MY!! AND Sakura happens to be a major fashionista and a sports fan so please enjoy our Q&A!
The Sports Brat: How did you get into blogging and Bloguettes?
Sakura Considine: I’ve always been obsessed with blogging before it got HUGE, because I love photography & fashion. When I started The Sorority Secrets with my partners, I was fortunate enough to have a graphic design & marketing background to get it all started. I saw the need for every business owners & bloggers to have these tools which is why my partner and I started Bloguettes. Bloguettes is a fun 2-day Branding Workshop for business owners, bloggers, and entrepreneurs to learn not only Photoshop, but how to use social media & blogging to leverage their business. We also go into the topic of business of blogging (partnerships, PR, etc.) and photography as well.
TSB: What do you see as the top trends and future for blogging right now?
SC: I see more and more people starting to have a blog, but it is those that have an exceptional brand behind the blog that is going to succeed! I also see more men are starting a lifestyle/fashion blog as well- which is so interesting to see!
TSB: Ok, you know I’m a sports gal, so who do you all root for?
SC: The 49ers! And I grew up a Yankees fan because my family is a die-hard Yankees fan all from New York!
TSB: If we were to see you at a niners game, what would you be wearing?
SC: Probably a jersey with some shorts or jeans with converses! I love a causal/sporty girl look!
TSB: And what would you be nibbling on?
SC: Nachos… hands down.
TSB: Ok most important question…what cutie athletes are you crushing on?
SC: I don’t have my eyes on anyone else, but ERIC DECKER.
TSB: Just because sports are rough and tough, us gals can still put on a little glam for the game. Any beauty tips on how to add just a touch of glam to your game day look?
SC: I’m a huge fan of the natural look. A little bit of blush and mascara and any girl is good to go!
TSB: The NFL has a new bag policy…as in you can’t bring yours unless its tiny or clear. Any tips on how to downsize your load for the stadium? Any bag recommendations?
SC: I actually ran into this problem and I was so bummed! I’m not sure about the other stadiums, but I know that the Cardinals have clear string backpacks that they give you on the inside! You really don’t need anything else, but your wallet, phone, and lipgloss anyways!
