Over the years I have profiled bloggers from the Northwest Territories to the Fraser Valley, anyone that interests me and that I hope will interest you as well. A few years ago I started asking a standard set of questions and I’ve sent these out to a few local bloggers for this week’s series. Click, share, explore, and enjoy.
How long has your blog been around?
It was started in February 2010 during a trip to Mexico City on an extra-long reading week due to the Winter Olympics.
What is your role?
I’m the owner and 95% of editorial content is written by me.
What does your site do/what is it about
Being Tazim is a blog focused on reader-service, organized around the principle that every individual has varied interests and unlimited creative potential.
What can people see, read, and do when visiting your site?
Content ranges from smart tips for home décor, to smart ways to use and enjoy technology. My partner and I travel a fair amount, so I also share a fair bit of our travel adventures, as well as (more recently) DIY projects and ideas.
Why do you blog?
Originally, I started in order to express the ‘hidden’ personas that I couldn’t focus on due to being a full-time university student. I ended up focusing the topics over time and connecting with other bloggers in a variety of social medias—and it became a way to be part of a great network of supportive people, in addition to being able to do something that I love. My formal education started out in interior design (before I pursued a degree in Art History at UBC), but I don’t practice interior design professionally anymore, so the blog has been a place where I can still showcase my ideas.
What is the ultimate goal for your site, how would you like to see it grow?
I’m hoping to be able to reach more local readers, and those interested in home decor and creativity. Being able to interview people I’m interested in, attending events, and featuring home, studio and store tours are all things that I would like to focus more on. Every month I am happy to get more opportunities to work with brands and causes that I stand behind — and I would love to do more of that on my blog. Ideally, I would like to be able to work part-time and spend more time on my blog.
