A few years ago, I dreamed of starting a creative platform where bloggers, artists, foodies and friends could come together to share their ideas, inspiration and support of one another. I wanted to create an online community of people who believed in the power of inspiration and creativity; this is how my online magazine Khoollect began.
Months of strategising, late night brainstorming and copious amounts of tea were endured; I remember spending day after day behind my laptop. Almost two years have gone by since these humble beginnings, and the team and I have come a long way. There’s an incredible amount of innovative bloggers, websites and magazines out there, so in order to stand out from the crowd, we work hard at creating purpose-driven content that inspires our readers.
Running an online magazine is non-stop; behind the scenes, there’s a lot of admin, schedules, strategies and Excel sheets our followers don’t get to see. But what I’m most proud of is that we continue to work towards my dream of sharing unique, authentic and uplifting stories (and food!) with our community every day.
If you have a dream of starting your own creative blogging platform, business or new side project, there are plenty of top tips, inspirational people and advice over on Khoollect. Check out some of my favourite career and inspiration posts from the site …
