It's always inspiring to talk to like-minded, creative people who are constantly trying to make a difference in this industry!
Creative visualiser, stylist, model and blogger Monalisha Mahapatra of The Greyhalfway spoke to Shopcade recently about her personal style and nuances of the blogging world, and as fans of her work, we asked her for a few tips so as to help every budding blogger out there.
Shopcade Headquarter (SHQ): What is the story behind the title "The Greyhalfway"
The Grey Halfway (TGH): "There is no story as such, though i was just researching at my workstation with few of my friends on cable knit sweaters on Pinterest and somehow got connected to bright colours and muted colours and that's how this name came into the picture."
SHQ: Describe your sense of style in one sentence
TGH: "My style is easily adaptable"
SHQ: What is your current favourite brand on the block?
TGH: "It has to be Zara, Oh i am in love with the new Zara Patched denim jackets!"
SHQ: How hard is it to sustain in the blogger industry?
TGH: "I believe that content is the king and i keep on creating a lot of editorials on my blog TheGreyhalfway now and then. We work on a lot of pet projects as well, which includes styling and playing with light and shadows where photography plays the most important role. Creating content is where everyone struggles so i think that's about it."
SHQ: 3 Tips for Newbie Bloggers
TIP 1: "Just work on the content you create and stay truthful to your own self."
TIP 2: "Style according to new trends."
TIP 3: "Instagram is one of the most socially active applications, make your Instagram as attractive as you can. Instagram posts don't necessarily have to be HD, but try creating good frames with your phone camera and post process it to make the pictures look attractive My secret editing software is VSCO and its a free app and I always use hashtags, Instagram permits 30 hashtags for one single post, so make full worth of it."
