Hi there, welcome to Layered Indulgence! I don’t know how you made your way to this little blog of mine, but I’m sure glad you’re here!
My name is Kate. I’m a twenty-something Torontonian who loves cafe-hopping, writing, and traveling the world one amazing city at a time. I’m planning-obsessed (literally can’t function without my day planner), and am a big time friends and family gal.
On this blog you’ll find blogging and social media advice, productivity and organization tips, and my thoughts on life as a full time entrepreneur.
I started Layered Indulgence about three years ago cuddled up in my bed (because where else does one start a blog?) and it has evolved from a tumblr-style inspiration board, to a fashion blog to a lifestyle blog, to today – a charming mix of lifestyle and blogging tips, for lifestyle bloggers who want to build their blog and biz, but also want a dose of life + style inspiration. Yes, you CAN have the best of both worlds!
Many bloggers will tell you you HAVE to pick a niche if you want to be successful, but I lovingly disagree. While there’s nothing wrong with having a niche (flaunt what you got!), I believe you can grow a successful lifestyle blog, blogging about what you love and not having to narrow your content to ONE specific niche. I know because I’ve done it. In the past year I’ve gone from under 1000 page views per month to over 20,000 page views per month and you can do it too (probably even in a shorter amount of time than me!). I aim to show you everything I’ve learned along the way!
I graduated from the Fashion Masters program at Ryerson University and realized my love for online journalism after interning at publications including FASHION Magazine and The Kit. It was at these places I learned how to write for the web, to navigate the world of WordPress, and that no, not every fashion internship parallels The Devil Wears Prada (although I’m sure some do).
As a full time blogger, freelance writer, and co-founder of Lipstick and Muffin Media I aim to empower women to reach their full potential, follow their dreams, and live the life they’ve always wanted.
Wondering where to start here on Layered Indulgence? Maybe one of these posts will catch your fancy:
