Q&A with: Carly A. Heitlinger AKA. The College Prepster

Q&A Series
Hello Beautiful People!

So as I said in my previous blog post, I came up with an idea the other day to start an little interview/Q&A series on my blog where I interview other bloggers from all over. Some of them known, some of them new or upcoming. I wanted a way to show that there are all types of blogs out there and something that makes each one and each blogger unique.

For this particular Q&A, I got the chance to ask Carly Heitlinger from The College Prepster a few questions about herself and about blogging. This was pretty exciting for me because I have been reading her blog for as long as I can remember and she is truly one of my “blogging” role models. Carly is a blogger based out of NYC and her blog mostly focuses on fashion and lifestyle. So check it out!

Where do you get inspiration for each blog post?
Inspiration is everywhere! Pinterest helps, but I also just turn to what’s going on in my life!

What gives you the motivation to keep up with your blog daily?
I love what I do and now it’s my job. Getting to connect and share with other people is my favorite part and a large part of the motivation. But at the end of the day, I do it because I just love it 🙂

What is one unique aspect that sets your blog aside from all the other ones out there?
I’m very personal on my blog. I don’t share every detail of my life, but I to make it so that my blog isn’t just a “highlight reel.”

Who are your biggest fashion influences?
Olivia Palermo has killer style; classic, but still on trend.

Who are your biggest role models?
I look up to a lot of businesswomen, but especially women who have careers that intersect fashion and writing. Kate White is one of my favorites!

Do you have any advice for those who are interested in starting a blog?
Start with the right intentions!
