I’ve been accepting sponsors/advertisers on FAT AUS for a few months now and I thought I would give my lovely sponsors a chance to tell you guys a little about their blogs/businesses and hopefully you’ll find something you enjoy on their sites. I am really picky about which blogs/businesses I accept as advertisers on here, I only work with brands that I feel are appropriate for that and that I personally believe in and think reflect my and the blog’s style. Anyway, enough out of me – meet the sponsors!
JEZZY BELLE’S VINTAGE
Hi, I’m Deborah! I run Jezzy Belle’s Vintage out of my little apartment in Knoxville, where I live surrounded by boxes. My husband, daughter and borderline obese cat take up the space that the boxes don’t. I’m a classic collector, I fall in love with pieces. I imagine stories for them, invest emotions in them. So basically if I didn’t run Jezzy Belle’s I’d be starring on my very own episode of Hoarders. I’m drawn to things with sparkle, loud colors and obnoxious patterns. If it might run a little too tight, a little too low cut or just a little Too Much, it makes me happy. I love sharing pieces with other collectors and there is little that makes me happier than photos of gloriously obnoxious gems on my lovely customers. Things have been a little crazy the last few months, (I’ve moved TWICE. YEAH.) but now that we’re settled in Tennessee I’m really looking forward to getting back into the swing of things both with my shop and with my blog. And getting to know more of my customers!
POP CULTURE MAJOR
Pop Culture Major started because I got tired of submitting posts to other sites and decided to take charge and do it on my own for once. My name is Dani and lemme be for real, I’m a lazy person and I’ll take the easiest way out always but for some reason, my love of pop culture propelled me to say “Hey, I’m gonna start my own blog and do things on my own terms!” Of course it was admirable and cute of me to think it’d be so easy but damn is it hard. You basically have to be online at all times because if you dare to look away for one minute, you might miss something. However, this doesn’t mean I don’t like what I do, I’m just being straight up: blogging is hard work but I love it so it’s rewarding (how Hallmark of me).
I birthed Pop Culture Major in August so it’s a baby but it’s growing and getting there. Aside from the above, I also started the blog because I am a pop culture groupie: I know a lot of useless trivia about TV shows, music, movies, etc. I couldn’t tell you squat about the history of my country but I can look at a photo of Rihanna and tell you what year it was taken, tell you which artist had the best selling album of all time (Michael Jackson, if you’re nasty!) and could probably kick your ass in Trivial Pursuit. I could talk your ear off about anything pop culture related all day and I will but that’s for another post.
I’m married with two hounds (one of whom is a puppy) so between blogging and dealing with that, I can get kinda tired out but I love doing it. There’s a lot of Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna on there but that’s to be expected since they’re such huge stars. However, nothing makes me happier than seeing a news item about Lindsay Lohan, Kim Kardashian or Courtney Stodden (http://www.popculturemajor.com/tag/courtney-stodden/
); I get to perfect my wit and snark every time I write about them. My favorite post has been the one about Coco (Ice-T’s wife) and her dog shopping in Miami because she retweeted the link (http://www.popculturemajor.com/2011/11/09/spotted-coco-and-her-english-bulldogs-day-of-retail-therapy/
) and sent great traffic to my blog: that made my year.
Another perk was interviewing an up and coming singer named Doxi Jones (http://www.doxijones.com/
), which blew my mind because it was the first time I ever interviewed a celebrity or anyone in the entertainment industry. Her interview will be up soon and I hope get the opportunity to interview more celebs. I also added someone else to the PCM team – my friend Monica, who loves “Clueless” and fashion since I know crap all about the latter. If you’re into free gifts, the holidays are coming up and we plan on having a giveaway so you don’t wanna miss that! We also have a Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/popculturemajor
