FEATURED BLOGGER OF THE WEEK – Ginseng & Thyme

How long have you been blogging?
G: We’ve been blogging since early February 2017, but we established the blog 6 weeks before that, taking some time to build our website, form our ‘brand’ (shudders at the thought of calling the blog a brand…) and started teasing folks on Instagram & social media for a month before we launch with our first post ‘Cheap Eats’.
Why did you decide to start your blog?
T: I did a little bit of blogging, if you could even call it that, while I was at Uni. I absolutely loved doing it, but it wasn’t very good and I was terrible at taking photos and being disciplined about it. Luckily, Georgie excelled at these exact parts, so when she asked if I would be interested in partnering up I jumped at the chance. I think it’s safe to say we make up where the other lacks.
What do you hope to achieve for your blog in 2017?
What is your favourite social media channel & why?
T: I mean Instagram is amazing, especially for what we do as it so visually driven, but I’m obsessed with Pinterest. I find it so inspiring and I get some of my best ideas from trailing through images for hours. I use it for so many aspects of my life like food (obviously), style, body positivity and even DIY. I like being able to see other peoples collections too, it’s usually a really good insight into someones world.
