Bloggers We Love: Lisa and Wendy from HipUrbanGirl.com

Published on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 in ,

Our next bloggers featured in our "Bloggers We Love" series are Lisa and Wendy from HipUrbanGirl.com. Be sure to check out their lifestyle blog that is dedicated to the busy city chick on the move!

D.O.L.L.S: How would you describe your blogging style?
Lisa and Wendy: We're pretty casual in tone and try not to take anything too seriously that it's not fun anymore!  We post two articles a day, five days a week and write daily features on food, travel, life advice, events and style.

D.O.L.L.S: What inspired you to start blogging?
Lisa and Wendy: Our friends were constantly asking for advice on travel destinations, great restaurants in the city, things to do - so we compiled all that information into our website.

D.O.L.L.S: What keeps you motivated to continue blogging?
Lisa and Wendy: Whenever we get compliments from our readers - we know we're on the right track in sharing great information.  The amazing opportunities and events that fall into our lap because of blogging also keeps us motivated.  This month I will be travelling to Spain to see Coldplay perform in the Bull Ring in Madrid thanks to American Express Canada.

D.O.L.L.S: What's the best thing a blogger can give to their readers and why?
Lisa and Wendy: I love little details and facts that you can get directly from an owner or designer that you won't find in any guidebook.  I love sharing these little tidbits with our readers.

D.O.L.L.S: How does your blog reflect your unique style and beliefs? 
Lisa and Wendy: I'm a very positive person and believes in being honest. If I really dislike a product or an experience at a restaurant or while travelling, I simply won't write about it.  There is so much negativity already in this world, there's no point in me spreading around more of it and putting that sort of energy out in the world.

D.O.L.L.S: Has social media in any way helped to enhance the blogging experience for you? How?
Lisa and Wendy: Twitter has allowed me to connect with and make friends with complete strangers who share the same passions as I do.  Tweeting is a great ice breaker and I have met some really fantastic people and made friends with those I have chatted with online.

D.O.L.L.S: What's your favorite post that you wish everyone who came to your blog would read and why?
Lisa and Wendy: What I Would Tell My 20 Year-Old Self - where I reflect back on the life lessons I learned in my 20s and share any advice I have.  It's going to appear in Huffington Post Canada soon. I'm the most proud of this one because I think we all felt one of these emotions at some point in our lives:

D.O.L.L.S: Name 2 bloggers who you like to read on a regular basis and why?
Lisa and Wendy: Nelia of www.Styleblog.ca  has such a unique sense of style and she makes any outfit look good. Stella of http://www.foodjunkiechronicles.com/ - Chronicles of a Food Junkie.  Stella can't eat anything and her reviews are always so interesting.

D.O.L.L.S: What can our readers expect to find when they drop by your blog?
Lisa and Wendy: Lots of travel ideas for the next getaway, style previews into the latest trends of the season, practical life advice, inspiring women, hip restaurants and food ideas

D.O.L.L.S: What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about starting a blog? 
Lisa and Wendy: Be consistent with your posting, don't worry about putting something up every day.  Just set a schedule and stick to it.
