The Ladies Who Made It Online: Heather Moore

Bloesem Living | The Ladies Who Made It Online: Heather Moore

Spending some time this quiet morning to ponder over how remarkable it is that the web is able to bring so many people, from all over the world, together.. Indeed, it has now become commonplace and something we don’t think twice about, but today I’m taking a little moment to appreciate that. I’ve met many people online whom I remain connected to to this day and one that definitely comes to mind is my dear friend from South Africa, Heather. I think we first got to know each other way back in 2007 when both of us just ventured into the web, and come to think of it — boy, how time flies! She’s both the owner of design company Skinny laMinx, whose textiles I absolutely adore all through the years, and also a fellow blogger. With both of us reaching our 10-year milestone, we were pretty eager to hear her thoughts about making it online.. Read on to find out!

What do you see in the future for blogging?

I can’t say, although Instagram is a total delight, and lots of people are abandoning blogs for their Insta feed. Personally, I still love keeping my blog updated with interesting content. Not only is it a useful journal (for me) to see how the business is developing, and also a great place for me to take the time to research and write about something that otherwise I might just have Pinned and moved on.

Exactly! I have also grown rather attached and the blog has become an irreplaceable personal space.. So what’s something you never expected to happen when you first started blogging?

I started blogging simply to keep a record of the things I’d been making in my studio, just for fun. I had no idea that it would have such a massive effect on my life! Being in South Africa, it’s easy to feel far away from the rest of the world, but my blog readers’ enthusiasm for the things I was making really encouraged me to make more, and now, 10 years later, I have a store, a staff of 10, and Skinny laMinx fans all over the world. It’s like a dream that I’d never have dared to have, actually came true!

I’m truly glad we connected even though we’re miles apart! What do you think is a ‘must’ for anyone who wants to start a career online?

A good-looking, well-planned, often updated website and a genuine enjoyment of social media.
