In a multi-part series, Wedding-Scoops.com asked a number of wedding bloggers -- those with no other professional interest in the wedding industry -- the same five questions about what keeps them going day after day.
In the seventh installment, Wedding-Scoops.com talked to Christine Dyer, founder of BridalTweet.com, an online wedding community that connects brides, wedding vendors and wedding bloggers. (See the last installment here.)
Here is what Dyer had to say:
Why are you a wedding blogger?
I am the creator and founder of BridalTweet.com, and at BridalTweet.com, I am the featured wedding blogger.When I first created BridalTweet, I wanted to create a more open wedding community where wedding vendors could have maximum editorial freedom. In addition, I wanted to create a place where brides could find free wedding advice, planning ideas, giveaways, local events and more.
What do you enjoy most about wedding blogging?
I blog to brides on my homepage and I blog to vendors within the vendor marketing secrets section of our wedding community. I love blogging to brides because it enables me to be creative and it inspires them. I really love blogging to vendors because it enables me to share over 10 years of marketing expertise that I have with the wedding community. I really feel like I'm helping people when I blog to vendors.
What do you like least about wedding blogging?
It is a lot of work and you have to plan your content calendar in advance.
What do you consider to be your wedding expertise?
Wedding marketing advice.
Where do you get your inspiration?
That's easy -- from the members of the BridalTweet wedding community. Their feedback and comments motivate me every day.
