What’s your blog called and why?
I was raised in Dubai so when I moved back to Chennai I wanted to explore and talk about the city hence the name Made In Chennai. I’ve been trying to show people about Chennai through my blog.
What makes you stand out from other bloggers?
My blog is more like reading a friend’s message; something which gives the girl next door vibe and relatable to the readers. It feels like I can connect more to people and vice versa.
What made you start blogging?
My love for fashion began when I was a kid and I like dressing up. Once in school, I got the title ‘Miss Fashionista’ for a fancy dress competition so that’s when I got the spark. After that, I started to groom myself even more and invested in fashionable clothing as well.
What motivates you to keep going with blogging?
Definitely, my followers because at the end of the day all my effort is for my readers. When I get the acknowledgment and appreciation from them I really feel motivated and even when I feel low I read their comments and messages so I think that keeps me going.
How do you get your following?
‘If Subhiksha can wear something I can also wear’ that’s the attitude I’m trying to build through my blog and I’m succeeding in it and that’s why I’m getting organic and genuine followers.
What are the things you do to catch up with the trends?
Thankfully there are so many fashion magazines, blogs, and Instagram handles which I follow and read regularly to be updated with the ongoing trend.
