Today I have something to share that has been in the works for a while now!
Drum roll please….
For those of you that don’t belong to her over 10,000 strong subscribers’ viewership on WordPress alone, Natalia is the writer behind http://renegade7x.com/
If you love fashion, travel, uncut realness and some pretty awesome reviews…. well Nat is the girl for you.
I have had the pleasure of creating some exciting content with this writing inspiration myself!
I have spent the last few weeks speaking with this blogging Queen and asked if I could interview her.
Nat has been kind enough to sit down and share her knowledge, thoughts and give us bloggers just a little sneak peek behind the curtain of renegade7x.com.
As many of you know, along with my fashion, travel and advice posts I love to write blogging tips. Having the opportunity to gain some insight from a well-established blogger and writer has been something I’m very grateful for.
Beginning on Tumblr over six years ago, Nat transferred to wordpress.com. Humble with her success, Nat lives in one of the World’s fashion capitals Prague! I first came across Nat when I saw her post “2019 is the worst and it’s been just 12 days!” From there I was hooked, I have been eagerly awaiting each and every post since! I’m sure you’ll find so too!
Her realness, relatability and writing skills were and continue to be just so enticing. Nat is a writer few can compare to, she writes from the heart and is so engaging you can feel like she is talking directly to you over a coffee.
It’s funny to me that many bloggers are writers that engross you more than a book ever can. (Plus the bonus of getting to talk to them directly couldn’t be cooler.)
Bloggers helping and sharing with other bloggers is something that is incredibly special. This forum allows us to connect with other likeminded people. One thing that took me by surprise, is that so many of Nat’s responses were the same as my own. So, from one Australian blogger and one Slovakian blogger we thank you for being a part of our community. Please feel free to share your own responses below, we’d love to hear from you!
Here is our interview below:
1 – what’s something people don’t know about you?
When I was 2 years old me and my parents and grandma moved to New Jersey from Slovakia. My first english words were “grandma where’s my puppy?“
2- How long have you been blogging?
I started in May 2013 out of pure boredom and curiosity. I created my tumblr blog and started exploring the blogger world. My blogs main topic changed so much over the years just as my interests changed. I created my WordPress blog to share more articulated articles about my life in 2018 – so really I’m still a blogger newbie.
3- When did and what made you gain a blog following?
I believe my tumblr blog got the biggest boost because of youtubers Dan and Phil (or Danisnotonfire and AmazingPhil back then) I shared small comments, edited some pictures and people from youtube fandom seemed to enjoy my stuff and I gained thousands of followers seemingly overnight.
About my renegade7x website I believe it was just few months after I started blogging on WordPress. I kept it real. I wrote stuff that was hard to type and the response I got was heartwarming. I wrote about my depression, anxiety, self harm, psychiatric sessions and I kept it as rough as reality was. So many people could relate but couldn’t voice it like I did and that’s what brought attention to my writing.
4- what’s your go to fashion piece in your wardrobe?
I have this one black and white knitted cardigan that I had for ages and it’s so stretched now but I just can’t let it go as it looks great with everything I own.
5- who’s your fashion icon?
Rihanna. She’s truly a fashion icon because of how she wears herself. People joke around that and item of clothing is ugly until Rihanna decides it’s not – and that’s just so true. She could put whatever on and still look fabulous because of her admirable level of confidence I aspire to have one day.
6- what’s one word to describe you?
7- what actress would play you in a movie?
I don’t want to sound too cocky but I’m gonna go with my celebrity crush Lily James. Love the shape of her.
8- where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I’m in my New Yorks apartment with this beautiful view over the city. I’m wearing silk pajamas and drinking coffee. My laptop is opened and my succesful website is on as I’m finishing my lattes article. I just published my book alongside with my new fashion line.Life is great. Everything I do now is in order to get that coffee in 10 years.
9- where do you want to travel next?
Switzerland. I have this scratch off map of the world and I have Europe pretty much traveled but I’m missing
Switzerland. Hope to fix that this year.
10- what’s your favourite blog topic?
It’s so natural for me to write reviews. It’s relaxing. But I find it more challenging to write something personal, some reflection. I love that feeling when I get new idea and I just have to pour it all down in one sitting and I get to publish it right away for world to see.
11- top tip to new bloggers?
Don’t focus on the numbers. I know it’s exciting to see your audience grow but don’t let it discourage you if the results are not according to your expectations. Take your time and focus on the content instead. Enjoy every struggling minute of writing
I hope you enjoyed today’s post as much as we loved creating it!
Special thank you to Nat for all her time and inspiration.
All my love,
