Featured Style Blogger: The Jessica L Blog

Jessica from The Jessica L Blog
How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging since 2011.

What were your main reasons for starting a blog?
At the time I discovered blogs, I was going through a really rough time in my life, which made me seek  out other outlets of comfort and relief.  I felt particularly inspired to document my story in an online forum.  Blogging then became the medium through which I felt that I could express the creative and emotional side of myself that I couldn't share with others from day to day.

What inspires you?
Stories of people overcoming significant challenges, funny moments, nature, art, music, poetry, and definitely food.

What do you like to do on your spare time?
I'm pretty boring whenever I have any down time. I like to journal, blog/write, run, hike, cook, explore, scrapbook and spend time with my dogs, family, and friends.

How long have you lived in San Diego?  Tell us what you love about SD.
Although I've been living in San Diego for the last 4 years, I was stationed here once before in 2003 to late 2005. Tell us what you love about SD. I love the laid back vibe of San Diego, the fact that traffic is not as bad as L.A. traffic, the proximity to the beaches, the people, the dog-friendly atmosphere, and the warmth and the sun of course!

What advice would you give to others who would like to begin blogging?
Figure out why you want to begin blogging and tailor your blog to meet those needs. If you want to blog for extra income, then you will have to be an active participant in the community and on social media. You will have to invest in a good design for your blog and learn how to make yourself marketable. However, if you want to blog just so you can document your personal life or as a hobby, you won't have to put as much effort into it. But whatever your goal for blogging is, be as genuine as possible. Also be ready for criticism because you are putting yourself "out there". Finally, just do it.
