Allie of ALLIE NYC
Allie is the voice behind the blog ALLIE NYC, which she started to combine her two passions in one place: design and writing. She also wanted a place to share her love of fashion, interior design, beauty, men’s fashion, and anything else that struck her fancy.
Allie lives in New York with her kitty, Chloe, and works as graphic designer in the publishing industry. When not working or blogging, Allie can be found dining with friends, hitting the beach and you guessed it: shopping.
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I work as a graphic designer/associate art director in the publishing industry. Although some of the work can be rewarding, you spend a good amount of your time producing the ideas of other people. I also found working in publishing I often admire what editors do. With blogging, my blog is my dog and pony show, and I have complete creative control, which is very rewarding. It has also allowed me to expand on my skill set and learn new things like writing, editing, marketing, and social media.
What do you find the most challenging about blogging/being a blogger?
Time. It is quite challenging to have a full time job in publishing and maintain a blog and grow your audience; there are only 24 hours in a day.
If you had to eat only one food for an entire year, what would it be?
If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Not sure about what super power I would wish for, but if I was granted a wish like that, I would wish for a strong, healthy, pain-free body for the majority of my life. You know what they say: if you have your health you have everything. I think as a society we would be better off being grateful for what we have, instead of wishing for something that is unattainable.
