It was not easy to write this questions because Erin is very-very interesting person. She’s so kind girl behind the blog about art, award-winning Design for Mankind. I was really glad to do an interview with her. Meet Erin through answers.
You are writing a lot, really a lot, how it became your passion, job? Beginning!
I’ve always been a writer, ever since I can remember. My favorite movie/book growing up was “Harriet the Spy,” as I so badly my journals to be as interesting as hers. ;)
How’s being a half of BAKERY? Tell me more about the collaboration with Jaime?
Jaime is… fantastic. She’s the perfect counterpart for me in every sense—I tend to go with the flow of things, yet she’s much more serious and business-oriented. We joke that she’s the project manager and her biggest job is to manage my crazy!
I’ve found your articles all around the web. ShelterPop, DIY Life, Design Milk, Share Some Candy and more. How you catch it all?
It’s tough juggling a lot of jobs, but I couldn’t love it more. I like researching a variety of different topics until I can deem myself an expert, whether that be party-planning, fashion or home decor.
You’ve done 16 dialogues so far, can you tell me more about the behind scenes, recording techniques and how you are finding your guests?
Dialogue is soooo much work, but a ton of fun. I actually owe its success to the “cast” of contributors—they’ve worked hard to record their segments in the right lighting and come up with thought-provoking responses to my insane questions. I found my guests pretty simply—people I loved, respected and wanted to know more about.
In the Dialogue episode 2 you said you’ve quit your daily job and started freelancing. How your day looks like?
My day is pretty flexible—sometimes I sleep in, sometimes I don’t (although I get much more finished when I don’t!). I always, always make time for my daily yoga or kickboxing class, otherwise I have crazy pent-up energy. Other than that, it’s just me and the computer, hour after hour!
And finally blogging. I’m visiting your blog every day and think I’m feeling the spirit of it. What are your content resources? Do you have a blogging plan or just write by the free will?
I actually JUST started a blogging plan, or editorial calendar, to help with organizing myself. Normally, I just surf with no real goals and jump through the rabbit hole of the Internet. Either way works well for me, as I’m pretty easily inspired.
I actually don’t have a desk, as I’m in the middle of a fixer-upper! I often blog from local coffee shops and things.
Thank you Erin.
