Style and Substance

in Blogosophy, Style & Substance Interviews


I love blogging, and a huge part why I love it so much is all the super amazing, lovely, generous, cool girls it’s brought into my life. I’m talking about the women of the Aussie blogosphere. They really are a fabulous bunch! Almost two years ago now, when I was all new to Australia and The Spring was just starting out, I began a series of interviews called Style & Substance featuring some of my favourite local bloggers. It was my way of reaching out, making friends, and finding a place in the online community. And it worked, so well in fact that I got lazy and let the series fall away.

Now that I’ve discovered so many more incredible Aussie blogs I feel it’s time to bring Style & Substance on back – only in a slightly updated form. That’s where you come in! Instead of asking the same 7 questions to everyone I’ve expanded the list so each interviewee can chose the questions from each section they’d like to answer. But before I start sending out the Q’s for our best bloggers to A, I want to find out two things from you first: Who would you love to see featured on The Spring? And what are you most curious to hear them talk about?

Here’re the probing questions I’ve got down on the list so far…

// Style

Q: How would you describe your personal style?
Q: What item in your closet are you loving most this season?
Q: What fashion/beauty/decor items are you coveting right now?
Q: Do you have a signature scent?
Q: What are your go-to beauty products?
Q: What’s in your handbag?
Q: What would be your ideal meal?
Q: What are your favourite local haunts?

// & Substance

Q: What inspires you lately?
Q: What’s the most recent thing you’ve made?
Q: What are you reading?
Q: What’s your favourite song/book/movie?
Q: What do you love about blogging?
Q: If you could jet off anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Q: What or who (so far) is the greatest love of your life?
Q: What’s the worst thing anyone’s ever said to you?
Q: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Q: Tell us a joke!

If you have suggestions for more questions, bloggers I should interview, or you want you and your blog to be featured in a Style & Substance post… please let me know in the comments below! Have a great day & thanks for your ideas!

Hi Catherine,
I never got back to you, its well over a year now.
When you asked me if I would answer a few questions for your blog.
Hope its not too late as I would love to.
A couple of questions for your list, (if you like them):
- what 8 people would you invite to dinner if anyone you picked in world said yes.
- what job/career would you love to try even if you love the one you have
- favourite last meal in world
warm wishes,

What a great idea Catherine! As a new blogger, I think its so important to have opportunities like this to help promote your blog and build a network. I would love to be interviewed one day (once I’ve developed my blog a bit more of course)!
