My name is Isabella Thordsen, and this is my online diary.. a happy corner of the internet where I have spent the past 12 years filling pages with personal tales, stories and anecdotes about my ever changing world of travel, lifestyle, family, fashion and beauty.
How did you become a blogger:
I started blogging when I was 16 years old. I was one of the first bloggers in Denmark to ever start a blog. Blogging back then was very different, but I’ve blogged almost every day since then, and I have and I still love every single moment of it! When I first started blogging I daily shared my outfits and life experiences. I always put a lot of effort into being very personal, since I find it important in a world of powerful social media where it’s easy for young girls & boys to be misled by the constant images portraying the ”picture perfect” life, to also write openly about up and downs and life’s challenges as well as my happy times. Since I was one of the first bloggers in Denmark my blog quickly grew, and I have been lucky to keep a very genuine and loyal following.
How do I become a blogger:
If you have been thinking and dreaming of becoming a blogger, I can only say: “Go for it!”. Blogging is hard work and takes lots of time and effort. You have to keep improving at all times, to be able to stand out. Growing a large following takes a while, so you got to understand that before you start. Getting followers doesn’t happen night over. You got to be consistent and post regularly to be able to grow a loyal following. My best advice is to be you. Don’t try to be anyone else! People want to follow you because they are interested in you, and what you do.
How do you edit your photos:
I shoot all my photos in RAW with my professional Canon Marl III camera. I edit all my photos in lightroom on my laptop using my own presets, which I’ve created and edited throughout the last couple of years. I do not sell my own presets (maybe one day!), but you can purchase many good presets. For editing travel images I have used and love: Gypsea lust; Do you Travel Presetssto odio, dapibus ac facilisis in, egestas eget quam. Nullam quis risus eget urna mollis ornare vel eu leo.
