I am Caro, a 22 year old student from Berlin. You can find me on my fashion blog “Terrorbambi”, which has been running since December 2010 – my 2-year anniversary is not far away!
A lot has changed for me personally: I met many new people through the blogger world. It is amazing that there are so many girls buzzing around there that have the same interests as me and with whom I can talk about fashion, trends and the fashion world in general. The biggest change, however, came with the first invitations to events and through my varied cooperations. When I think about going to Berlin Fashion Week for the third time, I still quite cannot grasp it. My blog has presented me with so many possibilities that I would have not been able to have otherwise.
I think it’s a shame that the German blogger community is often very competitive. In other countries bloggers work together and help each other to grow their blogs together. Here it sometimes feels like as if people begrudge other bloggers every reader. Comments are sometimes only written to get new readers, even though the true motivation should lie in an honest feedback and exchange. The worst, however, are comments like “Do you want to follow each other? If you follow first”. These are especially obnoxious and totally pointless. 😉
Originally I started my blog to build up a little portfolio for me for future jobs in the fashion industry. The first steps into this business are not easy and with this blog I wanted to get closer to my goal! However, at this point this has become less important. Instead, I want to collect many different photos and inspirations on my blog, have the opportunity to go to many more events and share these experiences with my readers. To make a living through blogging would be my dream!
As a newbie in the blogger word you should definitely give all your heart, but bring some patience as well since in the beginning your following won’t grow as fast as you would like. However, there are three key points that are always important to me: an appealing design, good quality pictures and of course amazing blog content. And it’s also important not to forget: Have fun blogging! 🙂
