Featured Blogger : Rita of Coast With Me

by - Saturday, October 20, 2012

I've always wanted to meet new bloggers. You would agree that, along the way, when you meet new bloggers some became your favorite and perhaps your another inspiration on blogging. That's what happened to me.

I've been off with my blog lately been very busy with school especially with my thesis. As I return blogging, and on my quest on looking for new blogs to read, I meet Ms Rita. I fell in love with all her looks and the way she express herself on her blog. I was quite overwhelm when I emailed her asking her if I can feature her on my blog and much to my delight when she respond and agrees to it.

So, join me as we coast with the one and only Ms. Rita Korkounian of Coast With Me.

"BE YOURSELF! Let your voice shine through:)!"

    How would you describe yourself? Shy & Quirky

 Tell us about your blog, how does it start?
It all started with a quarter life crisis...read my bio and it will all make sense. 

What does your blog url means?
Come along with me. Join me on my journey 

Can you tell us more about your blog name?
I love the beach and all things coastal. For months I was trying to come up with a name for my blog and it hit me at Target in the magazine aisle. I picked up a coastal magazine and the name just came to me. 
What blog platform do you use?

 What do you do when you’re not blogging?
Work, spend time with sister and friends, watch sappy romantic movies, and SHOP...of course! 

What’s the most challenging part you do with regards to your blog?
I’m a perfectionist...so everything! It takes me hours upon hours just to choose two or three pictures for my outfit post!How do you come up with new contents on your blog?
Planning in advance helps and having a variety of content to post such as polyvore sets, outfit posts, music videos, baking recipes, etc. Just sharing things I’m passionate about.

Was there a point when you feel like you’re tired of blogging?
Too soon to tell;)! Hopefully not.

Do you experienced get bullied or receiving hate comments on your blog or because of your blog? How do you handle them?
Not yet....I’m sure I will sooner or later. I’m a very sensitive person, so I don’t know how I will handle these comments, but I’ll deal with it when the time comes. Also, all I know is that you can’t feed into that negativity. People will write hate comments or bully others when they are unhappy with something in their own lives. All you can do is ignore it and/or wish them the best and hope they find their own happiness. Kindness is always my rule of thumb.

"Kindness is always my rule of thumb."

Share a tip on how you promote your blog.
 I’m still trying to figure this one out, but using as many social media outlets as possible and leaving comments on other peoples blogs. I wish I had the opportunity to guest post on other blogs too. Thank you for this opportunity btw:).

What’s your blogging style?
Not sure...Eclectic? 

Do you have any upcoming goals for your blog?
 Yes, to just enjoy it and do it because I love it.

Name some of the bloggers whom you look up to and why?Atlantic-Pacific, Cupcakes and Cashmere, 9to5chic, Wendy’s Lookbook, VivaLuxury Blog, etc. TOO MANY TO LIST!

Last message for those who would want to start their own blog?Just do it because you love it and the rest will follow :). Oh, and most importantly....BE YOURSELF! Let your voice shine through:)!

I'm leaving you with some of Ms. Rita's look I'm sure you'll all adore.
