INTERVIEWED: SQUIBBVICIOUS

Welcome to Interviewed, a series of discussions and chats with creators of all kinds.

 

Today we’re joined by Haydy of Squibbvicious, a travel expert, London know-it-all and food connoisseur. Haydy is one of the few bloggers I’ve been lucky enough to spend some time with, she’s just as hilarious, kind and bubbly in real life as she is online.

D: What do you do online as a creator?

H: I blog about travel, food, festivals, London, Essex and all the other bits inbetween, make YouTube videos, spend too much time on Instagram, and moan about my daily commute on Twitter! I also spend a hell of a lot of time emailing people about collabs – does that count?!

INTERVIEWED: NIK SPELLER

Welcome to INTERVIEWED, a series of discussions and chats with creators of all kinds.

Today we’re blessed by the company of a man with the eye for manmade structures and a wizard of words, Nik Speller.

D: What do you do online as a creator?

N: I’m a writer, first and foremost. That’s why I started blogging (all those years ago); I was looking for a ‘creative outlet’ and decided writing about food and restaurants was the way to go, as – at the time – it was pretty much the only thing I was interested in.

Since then, I’ve boosted my photography skills a little, helped in no small part by working with Mat on his blog, Buckets and Spades.

My photography has mainly been for the blog, when Mat’s had to be in front of the camera and needed some help in getting the perfect shot. I’ve also started a bit of a sideline in architectural photography over on Instagram – totally by accident, I’ll add. It was just something I started doing on a dull, boring day off, and as folks seemed to like it, I’ve kept it on.

Writing is still my main passion, though, and – thankfully – I’ve been able to upgrade from writing for my own (very small) food blog to contributing to Buckets and Spades (and a few others) on a whole range of very cool projects. Fortunately, I’ve also been able to carry writing into my day-to-day work too: writing articles on influencer marketing and the digital world in general, which seem to have really resonated with people.

INTERVIEWED: EDD SPEAKS

Welcome to INTERVIEWED, a series of discussions and chats with creators of all kinds.

Today we’re joined by blogger of all kinds Edd Speaks.

D: What do you do online as a creator?

E: I love the term creator, much better than influencer! I run a blog, my own little space where I talk about lifestyle and fashion pieces that I’ve been loving and other things that come to mind! I created my blog as I have so many thoughts and I wanted to share my creativity with as many people as I can!
The fact that I now have over 130,000 views is crazy to me!

INTERVIEWED: ALICE SPAKE

Today we’re joined by someone I love a great deal, a blogger who’s pregnancy has had Twitter on the edge of it’s seat: Alice Spake of Annie Writes Beauty.

Fun fact, I recently made a post about blogger friends and people I’ve connected with online, I wanted to include Alice but didn’t as I didn’t think we were there. She promptly tweeted me with an ‘AHEM’ and I realised we are well and truly there.

D: What is it you do online as a creator?

A: I run my blog, Annie Writes Beauty talking all things beauty and lifestyle, mostly recently I’ve added in a baby category to document my pregnancy. I also run Southampton Bloggers, a blogging hub on the South Coast.
