What’s your name?
My name is Trisha, that’s short for Patrizia. I also go by TrishArgh or Mary Sew 😀
Where do you live (country is fine)?
I am from Germany. I was born an raised in Berlin and now live in a small town called Siegen to study here.
Where do you blog?
Usually from my desktop PC, but when I am lazy I blog in bed with the laptop 🙂
What made you start blogging? /How long have you been blogging? Has it always been in the same place?
(I answered all these questions in one, I hope that’s okay?)
I always had a blog. I’ve always had a website, the first webpage I made back in the 90’s (oh god, I’m old!). I am a html and coding geek and I always played around with it. And I always followed the latest Internet trends. Blogging was a part of it. So I think the first blog I started about 7 or 6 years ago, it was called “crying out loud” lol. I was very much into digital art back then and posted about that matter a lot. Later I had a livejournal. About 2 years ago I wanted a DIY blog. I was inspired by all the big DIY blogger like Elsie or Mama Sew. I’ve been sewing and crafting for so long and it was a big part of my life, I thought it would be great to show these things on my blog. I also wanted to share tutorials.
WordPress, Blogger or other?
I used to have a Blogger account back then. But now I go with WordPress, hosted on my own webspace. I love WordPress 🙂
Do you have a day job or is blogging your main thing?
Haha, yeah, that would be great. No, in fact I am a university student. I also run a small teeny tiny business.
Do you have specific blogs that inspire you?
I get inspired by the blogs of my friends Thera and Max a lot. They create awesome fashion and are so very talented. I also love the blog of the Dainty Squid and a German blog called Frau Liebe the most.
If you could ask me one question (and I answer it) What would it be?
How old are you? You always look so young on your pictures, it’s hard for me to guess your age 😀
Piece of advice for bloggers out there?
Be yourself, anyone else is already taken! Don’t try to copy other people. It is totally okay to get inspired by other blogger and I can understand when you choose them as a role model for your own blog in the beginning. But somewhere along the way you should develop your ow blog personality. Oh, and only blog about things you really like to share. Don’t blog pretty pictures just to blog something. That’s boring and your readers will see right through it.
In answer to Trisha’s question
How old are you?
I’m 24 – I’ll be 25 on my next birthday in April. I often get told that I look younger than I actually am – which should be a good thing because then when I’m like 60 I’ll look 50 haha! Better than any anti-aging cream lol.
