I am Glenisha Mc Gillivary a creative and a dreamer based in Grenada. Writing for me is a medium of expressing myself. I created my website to share with others my life stories, fashion and beauty tips and travel stories. The aim is to inspire and be inspired. You’re free to become whatever you want and do what makes you happy. Life is your canvas so express yourself.
RB: Tell us the story behind creating The Fab Life Story.
GM: The best aspects of blogging are: I get to express myself and create great content. I meet amazing people who share their craft and who love creating content also. I get to attend social events and blog about it- pretty awesome. It feels good to be part of a community that appreciates the art of writing and self-expression. Worse aspects:
Don’t get me wrong I love writing but writers block is no joke. I tend to procrastinate at times and let things pile up (bad habit) then try and do them all at once. Not everyone will like or appreciate your work and that’s totally fine. As a super sensitive person I try and avoid those who come with negative energy but still accept constructive criticism.
GM: The Caribbean region of bloggers is growing rapidly. Before blogging I had no idea all these amazing and talented individuals existed. I think more and more of us women are influencing others to start their own blog. After all, women inspired me.
GM: At present I do but on a small scale. I’m always in search of ways to improve myself and to promote the brand I created. Yes I’d love to get paid for my work but I also understand that the higher influencers once started small. It all takes time and determination.
RB: Where would you like your blog to be positioned in a few years?
GM: I would definitely like to see my blog grow and continuously flourish. The aim is to master the art of writing, produce inspiring content that my followers enjoy and to never forget the reason why I started on this journey.
RB: How did you go about carving out a niche for yourself in the very noisy blog space?
GM: For me it’s creating content that I love, so that’s what I’ll write and talk about. I am not trying to become anyone else but the best version of myself. I allow things to flow in its synchronicity. If you like what I create then you’ll follow, if not it’s totally fine.
RB: Describe your typical day as a blogger.
GM: Lets just say I started out in a rush, only to realize there isn’t a need to. I tend to write at nights when its quiet or out in nature. I sat one day and planned all my content in which I’d like to create for the year, a lot of which did not happen because other things kept popping up. I now allow ideas to flow and I write accordingly.
RB: What keeps you going when you are having a bad day?
GM: Whenever things start to get out of control or if I’m having a bad day; I find a quiet place take a few deep breaths, meditate and shift my focus. Yoga has been helping me out a lot lately. Positive energy is key.
