Tell us a little about you (the person behind the blog).
Tell us about your blog.
Delphina Luxe is a platform for my love for jewelry, art (mine as well as the art of others), my personal style (which I refer to as “dark chic”), my photography, and the work of creators that inspire me. I emphasize and celebrate the beauty and elegance of dark aesthetics.
What inspired you to first start writing your blog?
My blog was originally an outlet for my fashion illustrations, but it very quickly came to encompass a lot more. Having to separate all of my creative endeavors into different blogs and websites was becoming overcomplicated, so I decided to channel them all into a single, multifaceted site.
How has blogging affected your life?
Blogging has been quite rewarding, but it’s a lot of hard work. I’m sure many have said this, but it’s true: it’s much like having a second job, and sometimes it becomes one. I provide unique content for each post, most of which I create myself. As you can imagine, it’s very time-consuming.
What has been the biggest challenge you have faced with your blog?
Finding the right balance in my content. On one hand, my blog is quite niche due to its focus on dark fashion and glamour. On the other, the illustration work and the focus on jewelry has a wider appeal. I try to balance the two, but since my audience consists of many different kinds of people there is a certain amount of pressure to keep everyone happy.
What advice would you give to new bloggers?
Although I’m rather new I think it’s important to be unique and passionate, and do it because you love it, not because you expect it to become an overnight sensation. Also, don’t recycle or regurgitate information that can be easily found elsewhere. Try as much as possible to have a unique voice and content of your own so that you have something new to share with the world.
