Bloggers We Love: Kanisha from kaykispeaks.com

Published on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 in , , , ,

We're kicking off Part II of our "Blogger We Love" feature series with Kanisha of kaykispeaks.com! Check out the latest and greatest news on her entertainment/current events blog, but first get know a little about her from her interview below!

D.O.L.L.S: How would you describe your blogging style?

Kanisha: I’d describe my style as random & honest. Its mostly all from inspiration.  I dont often blog anything that doesnt truly & naturally prompt me to blog it. Whether that prompting is the fact that it made me smile or made me upset..it genuinely has to catch my attention. Now, some times I blog about people/things that I know my readers like, even if I dont care for the subject matter, but that took some time to figure out. I consider those posts "for the love of my BabyKayKs" lol, but most of the time its from the gut.

D.O.L.L.S: What inspired you to start blogging?

Kanisha: A combination of natural curiosity, people constantly telling me I should, & not having many options of entertaining aaannnnd positive blogs to read for myself.

D.O.L.L.S: What keeps you motivated to continue blogging?

Kanisha: My BabyKayKs (readers)..absolutely. Its funny, when I started it was a hobby, but that gets  old after 2 years lol. So I consider my readers daily. The emails, hits, & messages keep me going.

D.O.L.L.S: What's the best thing a blogger can give to their readers and why?

Kanisha: Consistency for one. There are a billion blogs out there, and for someone to make the decision to read yours is a big deal. Not just in posts, but content. Give them what they want, and keep doing that. Different readers want different things, but knowing your readers keeps them happy for sure.

D.O.L.L.S: How does your blog reflect your unique style and beliefs? 

Kanisha: My blog is in no way a fabrication of opinion. What I say I mean, so I guess its a direct reflection of my beliefs. As for my style it all says me..from the color to the content. :)

D.O.L.L.S: Has social media in any way helped to enhance the blogging experience for you? How?

Kanisha: Absolutely. Twitter was definitely the tool God used to propel my site to where it is today. Its prob the best marketing tool for bloggers out there. Its quick, efficient, and easy!

D.O.L.L.S: What's your favorite post that you wish everyone who came to your blog would read and why?

Kanisha: Hmm... what a great question that Im not sure I can answer. So much has happened in the past 2 years that sticks out. If I absolutely had to pick one...maybe one of the very first posts called "Self Love". I think it was like the second post. It was in my long winded days, lol but its so honest & reflective. A message anybody can appreciate!

D.O.L.L.S: Name 2 bloggers who you like to read on a regular basis and why?

Kanisha: Well I love a couple of blogs that dont have one particular blogger. I dig The Life Files & Shoerazzi.. I check those daily!

D.O.L.L.S: What can our readers expect to find when they drop by your blog?

Kanisha: I pray & believe that I do have something for everybody.. well at least thats what I like to think.
The latest in fashion, world news, and entertainment with an ounce of love. Thats what I aim for.

D.O.L.L.S: What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about starting a blog? 

Kanisha: Do it. You've really got nothing to lose. Next, appreciate your readers. If your blog is going to go anywhere its going to be because of them. Most importantly though, dont think about the numbers. Thats way easier typed than done right? Ive learned that 1 reader is just as important as 10000. When I first started I had a hit counter on the site. Every day I monitored how many hits I was getting. I found myself being discouraged on days that werent as good as others. Now that Ive been blogging for a while I understand the trends and I do not check my hits every single day. Of course I know what the core number is, but I tell myself that I blog for each reader individually, not for the number of hits.  When the money starts to trickle in ( & trust it literally trickles at first!) the numbers may appear to become important, but dont lose site of whats really important, and thats connecting with each reader.
