Teen wins the chance to be guest blogger
A SHEPTON teenager has won the chance to be a guest blogger for a fashion website.
Talented Charlotte Smith, who has only been blogging since May, won the competition last week and has already made her first contribution to Inspired Magazine.
The 18-year-old said: “I was very nervous, I didn’t think I would get it. Living in Shepton there aren’t many opportunities, so I am really pleased.”
Charlotte’s fashion blog is based around high-street clothes as well as her own outfits.
She believes that you can “shop cheap and still look good, it isn’t about the money it is the way you put things together,” and this is what she aims to share with readers.
Since starting her blog back in May, Step into my Closet has received more than 4,000 views.
And now she has agreed to share her blog with Journal readers too, on our website.
Charlotte, who works as an apprentice in marketing five days a week and has a weekend job at Kilver Court cafe, said: “It is hard. I work seven days a weeks, with two jobs, but if you have the drive and determination I think you can do it.”
The competition to be a guest blogger for four months at Inspired Magazine was a social media-based competition.
It aimed to give everyone a chance, therefore didn’t want to base the winner on the amount of followers but instead bloggers had to share their photo and blog to receive the most likes on social networking website.
