Stephenie of Phantasm
Stephenie Kang (that’s Stephenie with an “e” instead of an “a,” by the way!) is a bookish sartorialist and traveler blogging at Phantasm. You can mostly find her stalking other book/fashion/travel/lifestyle blogs or scuttling rapidly toward her local library, scaring off small children with her perpetual presence in the literature section.
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Ahh, this is such a difficult question! I love almost everything about blogging, but if I really had to choose one thing I loved, it would probably be the writing. I want to earn an English BA once I get out of high school and try to break into the publishing industry, so on top of enjoying taking pictures and tinkering with my theme, keeping a blog is something I’m hoping will really help to develop that sense for writing I think will help me further along the road.
What do you find the most challenging about blogging/being a blogger?
For me, I find that the most challenging thing about being a blogger is simply promoting my blog. Especially because I chose to use my name as the URL, I feel sort of hesitant putting my blog out there, even though the official title of the blog is, well, Phantasm. It concerns me whether people think I’m too self-promotional when I attempt to spread the word. I haven’t even told my closest friends about the fact that I run a blog yet! But, you know, I suck it up, and WordPress’ automatic Publicize option really helps with promotion, too.
If you had to eat only one food for an entire year, what would it be?
Oh my gosh, I don’t even have to think about this one! I would eat pizza all day, every day for an entire year if I really could. Unfortunately, I’m still a minor and living with my mom, so I have restrictions as to what I can eat, but a girl can dream, right?
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
It would be the ability to conjure a small loan of one million dollars out of thin air. I would kill to be able to invest in business ventures without worrying about my own personal finances!
Thanks for being this week’s babe, Stephenie!
