'Meet The Blogger' Series Interview 36

Wednesday, 7 September 2016

I have decided to start a new series here on Sunshine Sarahxo after meeting so many lovely bloggers on Twitter I would like to get to know them. So I am going to try to recruit as many as I can as I think everyone deserves a chance to be in the spotlight. =)

Q1: Hello there, nice to have you here on Sunshine Sarahxo! Please could you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your Blog:

Hello there! We’re Suzy and Beth and together we run an online magazine called The Olive Fox. We started The Olive Fox in October 2015 as a place for readers to find lots of unique content across a variety of categories, without even having to leave the site! So you can find anything from health and wellbeing through to culture and politics. There’s something for everyone!

Q2: At what point did you decide to make a Blog and share it with the world??

We’d both had our own personal blogs before starting The Olive Fox but, for a while, we’d both wanted to do something a bit more substantial. The idea grew pretty organically over the course of an afternoon and, within a few hours, we’d created the bones of The Olive Fox!

Q3: How would you describe your writing style? Has it changed over time at all?

Well, The Olive Fox is mostly made up of contributing authors so we don’t have one particular writing style - something we absolutely love! We hope to keep adding to our growing list of contributors as the site becomes more established.

Q4: Was there anyone in particular who inspired you? Which Bloggers do you emulate?

We’d like to think that The Olive Fox is different from a lot of other sites out there and we’re certainly trying to provide something unique in the content and categories we provide. More generally though, there’s lots of bloggers who inspired us to go on and create The Olive Fox!

Q5: Do you have anything in the pipeline on the Blog which you are particularly excited about?!

It can sometimes be tricky to establish new ideas on the site as we live two hundred miles apart so we don’t get chance to have a good old business chat as often as we’d like to. However, we do have a few things planned for The Olive Fox in 2016 including new writers, a newsletter, and there may even be a little party in the pipeline!

Q6: Does anyone else know about your Blog? What do they think about it??
Yes, all of our family and friends know about our site and everybody has been wonderfully supportive. Both of us work in full-time jobs as well as keeping up with all of the site work so our partners are having to get used to seeing us from behind a laptop every hour of the day. Thankfully, they’re very understanding!

Q7: Are you obsessed with Lush!?!? If YES what is your favourite product?!
Haha it seems like every blogger in the land is obsessed with Lush! Suzy is a big fan of the Refresher shower gel because it smells deliciously like sherbet lemon and Beth loves The Comforter bath bubbles and the Eau Roma Toner water.

Q8: Has your Blog helped you in other areas of life?!

Definitely! Our confidence in our own abilities has certainly increased by working together on The Olive Fox. It’s great to know that we’ve managed to create a tiny, but happy, community which people want to contribute to and enjoy. It’s exciting and has encouraged us both to have a bit more pride in ourselves!

Q9: What is it that makes you so fabulous?!

Oh gosh, having just said that our confidence has improved, we both just winced at this question haha! We’re not good at complimenting ourselves! Okay, maybe we should each say why we think the other is fabulous?

Beth is fabulous because she is wonderfully caring and generous and would do anything for somebody that she considers to be a friend. She’s so talented in her business and is a complete whizz (and lifesaver!) when it comes to technical know-how. Beth is an ideas machine and she encourages me to open my mind and just go with things much more than I used to. It’s genuinely like working with a child with an overactive imagination, she’s so much fun!!
Suzy is fabulous because she keeps everything grounded and takes a step back to make sure I (Beth) don’t go too crazy. She is an incredibly talented writer, and gives 100% into everything she creates. She also inspires me to go for the things that I want to do. She’s methodical, passionate and hilarious. I couldn’t ask for a better best friend and business partner.

Q10: Finally, can you recommend anything to us today!? (Skincare/Beauty/Tv Show/DVD/Music/Food Item...anything!)

Ooooh, yes! Suzy recommends Happy Valley if you fancy a great British drama to watch, as it’s absolutely gripping. Also try and catch the new tracks from Catfish & The Bottlemen (Soundcheck) and The Lumineers (Ophelia). Beth really likes superhero programmes, so she recommends Jessica Jones and Daredevil (not for younger viewers). Food wise, she loves Oreos and Frazzles (and is very happy they’re both Vegan and is eating them right now!)
