Blogger Spotlight: Alma of The Alma Chronicle

Hello guys, happy new month! I do apologise for being absent throughout last week. I had posts planned out and all but the wifi suddenly developed a mind of its own and stopped working. Very bizarre. Thankfully it has been fixed.
     There are so many amazing bloggers out there that I love . I have decided to start a new series on the blog called Blogger Spotlight so that you guys can know them too. If you have any blogger in particular that you'd like me to ask some questions, let me know in the comments section! xx



I'm a big fan of this particular blogger. I actually discovered her blog through Twitter. Someone retweeted one of her tweets, I checked her account and followed her. Then I started reading her blog and retweeting all her gorgeous outfit pictures. My admiration for her skyrocketed after reading this interview she had with Bella Naija. I present to you Alma Ezonfade of The Alma Chronicle. 


When did you start blogging and why?
I started blogging in January 2015. Before that, I was an avid reader of different fashion & style blogs and I really liked what it was all about. I liked the idea of having a space to freely express your thoughts whilst sharing style and beauty tips. At that time, I must admit I wasn't the most stylish person but I wanted a platform I could document bits and pieces of my life and voila, The Alma Chronicle was born. 

What's your blog about?
My blog is mostly about my personal style. It's also a space for me to freely express my thoughts on certain topics that I’m passionate about. 

How would you describe your style?
Simple & Comfortable. My personal style is greatly influenced by the saying "less is more" and that's what I try to preach on my blog. I believe in making the most out of simple basic pieces and I don't believe in compromising comfort to look good. 



How do you balance work/school and blogging?
Well, I just completed my masters in Engineering Management and for that period, my blog suffered. I'm not the best at juggling priorities so I wouldn't say there's much of a balance yet. Lately, I've embraced the idea of scheduling posts and bulk shooting so my blog doesn't suffer even when my life is busy. 

What does self love mean to you?
Self love to me, simply means being able to accept, love and respect yourself. Being able to comfortably call out my insecurities and imperfections and then accepting them because essentially that's what makes me ....ME! It's very important that us females understand this because we're in the day and age where the media influences whether we love ourselves or not and that's just simply sad.




What are some principles you live by and why?
live with no regrets and try everything at least once.

What're your future goals for your blog?
Hmmm. I can never really put these goals in short sentences. In summary, I want my blog to be a sure stop for ladies of different demographics seeking some sort of style inspiration. 

What advice would you give to aspiring bloggers?
Don't compare yourself to other bloggers. I know this is easier said than done because we live in an era where success is largely publicized on social media platforms and as such, it's easy to get caught up in the quicksand of self doubt when you feel you aren't moving as fast or benefitting as quickly as the next person. Do your own thing, appreciate every lesson learnt and you'll see results. Use other bloggers as a source of inspiration as opposed to measurement of success. I have a post dedicated to this, you can check it out here (With Love, Alma).

  1. Love this interview!

    The not comparing yourself to other bloggers is really hard though. Especially when you're already a blogger.

    But it's not always a negative thing. It could inspire you to be better.

    Really nice pictures.

  2. Awesome post and gorgeous photos. Comparing yourself to others can be such a hindrance, I completely agree, you have to stay focused on yourself. No one's story is the same and that is the beauty of it, although it can be hard to implement sometimes. Great read xxx
