Featured Style Blogger: Savvynista

Maria from Savvynista

How long have you been blogging?
I've been blogging for over 4 years but with my current blog savvynista.com, 1 1/2 years.
What were your main reasons for starting a blog?
I started Savvynista because I wanted to share with other women and my friends savvy things for women about style, beauty, life, some techie things. After tracking what features get read the most, it seems that style tips, how to pair pieces, wardrobe staples, savvy fashion investments and stories about my personal life get read the most.
What inspires you?
Anything really. A quote I read can inspire me for the day or someone's smile. The color of the sky, the smell of the air, perusing new shops and antique stores. A piece of jewelry I haven't worn in a long time. You name it!
What do you like to do on your spare time?
I enjoy walking outdoors, by the ocean or in nature, shopping of course, reading a good book, traveling when I can and trying out new restaurants.
How long have you lived in San Diego?  Tell us what you love about SD.
I lived here when I was a little girl, then we moved all over Southern California. I just recently moved back to Carlsbad area. I love that for such a big county, overall it has a small town vibe. It's not as hectic and fast paced from Santa Monica/Los Angeles where I lived for many years. And I love that there's a lot of parking for free! No more scrounging around for meter change.
What advice would you give to others who would like to begin blogging?
Don't think about the results too much. Start a blog and if you don't like the name or direction, change it. It's a good way to explore your creative side and see what resonates to you. If you're serious about making your blog part of your living, then expect to make it a full-time job and enlist help from others. Also connect with a blogging community that matches up with your angle and if there isn't one, start it. I'm sure there are others in your area who would enjoy being a part of it.
