This is an awesome find out about other blogs and get the word out about your site. This bash goes from July 12th to the 16th, so head on over to Not Your Average Teen and figure out how you guys can participate!

Blog Bash

Introduction: I'm HC, otherwise known as the Haute Californian, and I'm an 18 year old Californian who is a sophomore in college. In college I'm studying Apparel Production & Merchandising in hopes to one day be a stylist and an editor of a fashion magazine. Growing up I had several interests and went through various phases. I danced for a couple of years, did soccer for a year, played the flute for four and a half years; however, my one constant love was always fashion. Whether it was altering my clothes, sketching designs, or reading fashion magazines, fashion has always been a prevalent part of my life. In fact, whenever my friends were in a clothing bind or needed a shopping buddy I was always the first one they would call! So when I started applying to colleges I knew that I wanted to go somewhere where the action was, that wasn't too far away from home, that also had a fashion major and a year later here I am!

1.) Why do you blog?

I blog because I love having a voice. Sharing my opinions with others and learning about other people's points of view gives me such an energy that no other form of communication could suffice. I love knowing that there are others who share my love for the fashion industry and blogging :)

2.) What do you blog about?

I tend to blog about my personal style, runway shows, collections I covet, and celebrities whose style I adore; so essentially I blog about style. However, I would not consider myself limited to it. I also love hearing about what others like to see in my blogs (i.e. what to wear on the first day of school) which is why I have my Formspring!. Seriously, let me know what you guys think! The next post could be about you :)

3.) What do you find to be the biggest reward you get from blogging?

The biggest reward from blogging is connecting with my readers and other bloggers. Blogging is such a huge network and it's always the best when you get other people's opinions about what you are doing or just any sort of acknowledgement, it makes it all worth it!

4.) How long have you been blogging?

Well I have had blogs in the past but that was kind of like when I was younger and dumber. I blogged about the randomest things and I'm pretty sure I wasn't being one hundred percent me, I'm surprised people read my stuff back then haha! But when I started Haute Californian in late June I knew that I was going to give it my all and be completely real and have been hooked ever since :)

5.) Let's hear the story behind your blog title! :)

The Haute Californian. Um I kind of just wanted something that told people that I would be blogging about fashion so I put haute and I consider myself pretty All-Cal because I was born in SoCal moved to NorCal and now I got to school in SoCal so I was like why not? And I know Haute means high but I thought it was a cute play on words because Haute and hot sound the same, and California is very hot lol. It was cute at the time but explaining it sounds silly haha.
