Today we’d like to introduce you to Tania B Darling.
Tania, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I launched my blog during my post-grad studies in London mainly for learning purposes to allow myself an opportunity to gain better access to the job market. I was hoping to get a digital marketing job after my studies, and my blog was going to serve as my online portfolio showcasing my transferable skills. Six months down the line, I started to gain following across my social media channels which gave me the motivation to take a leap into a content creation world. I’m currently in my third year of blogging, and I’m able to travel the world as a full-time blogger creating content for some of the most amazing brands.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Challenging yourself to be better than yesterday is a difficult task especially in a community filled with so many amazing and creative people. Working for yourself can also be hard as you need to wear so many hats without an option to go home after work. Building your presence and business from scratch is never easy, but its extremely rewarding and I would never trade it for anything else.
We’d love to hear more about your work as a content creator.
I specialize in travel and style inspirational content. For some reason people either love fashion or travel and crossing over is not always the case. I want to provide information to people on what outfits go well with a particular destination and how to stay stylish during your travels. I also really focus on providing as much information as possible on what to do in places I go to as well as facts and history about those destinations, so people that read it are able to decide easier on whether or not to visit and if they do, what they can do whilst there.
We’re interested to hear your thoughts on female leadership – in particular, what do you feel are the biggest barriers or obstacles?
I’m happy that my industry is one of the industries where females are paid more than males; however, girls sometimes may not be as supportive of each other which I find a little sad. I support female empowerment and always look for ways to help other entrepreneurs, and I would love to see more of the same witing the community as a whole.
