Hey babes! So aside from providing unsolicited fashion and life advice here on Gal About Town (shameless plug: you really DO need this neon pink sweater in your life– okay got that over with), I wanted to use todays post to answer some of my most common questions I get from you guys.
Any Tips for New Bloggers?
I plan to start incorporating blogging tips and advice in more detail soon because I get a TON of questions on this! When I started Gal About Town in 2015 I honestly had no idea what the fu*ck I was doing. I knew I loved fashion, writing, and sharing my life and stories with others but I can’t say that I ever planned for this to turn into my full time gig. I think what has helped make my blog successful (I still have a LONG way to go for the record) is that everything I post and write about is genuine, and I love connecting with others. I did not start this blog with intentions of growing it into a business and making money, I did it because it fulfilled me. Posting and writing about things I loved, always keeping it “real”, and being transparent. Find what makes you “you” and what you are passionate about, and there you go– that’s your brand. Blogging has become quite a saturated market because ANYONE can start a blog– that’s also the beauty of it. Anyone has the opportunity to turn something they love into a successful business. Okay… I am rambling. I promise I will cover more on this and go into more specific questions.
How do You Manage Ellie’s Dog Hair?
Haha I am not kidding this is a VERY common question I get. If you don’t know, Ellie is my 7 year old golden retriever and BFF. Aside from vacuuming like a psycho, I also try to brush her every few days and when I get her groomed I ALWAYS get them to “de-shed” her. Lint rollers are also in every room of my house AND in my car. However, when it comes down to it…. no matter what you do there will always be dog hair in your house and on you– it’s just a small price you pay for being a dog parent of a long haired dog. I am looking to getting a roomba though to cut down on vacuuming, so if anyone has any input on that let me know!
How Do You Care For Your Hair?
Again, this is another topic that I am going to dive into more detail on the blog soon. I promise. I have SO many hair posts in the works. However, one thing I will say that I feel like makes a HUGE difference for me is that I only wash my hair once or twice a week. AKA: I am in a committed relationship with dry shampoo and hats. I know this might not be realistic for many of you depending on your hair type, but I think that is a big part of keeping my hair healthy. I also try to minimize the heat I put on it if possible.
Do You Sell You Clothes?
I personally do not sell them. However, I have a friend who picks them up and lists them on her personal Poshmark account (along with some other bloggers clothes who you may know) which you can shop here.
What is Your Fitness Routine/Diet?
Well… I am definitely not a fitness enthusiast or paleo eater. However, I try my best to eat clean(ish) and stay active. I actually want to share more with you guys on my fitness journey because there was a point in my life where I was NOT healthy or happy with my body. As of now, you can see my workout routine in this post here.
I have a longgggg list of questions from you guys that I will continue to answer here in the blog and go into detail on more topics! If you have any you would like me to include, please reach out!
