Blog of the Moment

August 28, 2010

Hey, I’m a day late, but I have a new blog spotlight! This week it goes to Kelly of Sour Tang!


Sour Tang!

Sour Tang is a really diverse blog. Kelly often posts about designs that catch her eye, recent finds, or beautiful art. Her blog is a great example of great design, and it is very user-friendly. It’s definitely worth checking out!


Meet Kelly!

Describe the idea behind your blog, Sour Tang.
My blog, started a long time ago as a place to rant and was a personal space to share the things that I did, liked or was inspired by. And eventually, I started getting more into fashion and began posting things that I liked in fashion. After a long hiatus, I took my fashion research and communications course which had us blog as a semester long project. Instead of thinking it a pain in the butt. I really enjoyed it, and I’ve pretty much been blogging since then. :D
Where did your blog’s name come from?
I actually used to sell jewelry, and things online, under the name of Sour Tang. I wanted to come up with something that was whimsical, and was still related to myself. Tang is my last name, and I guess I thought sour was something that described my fourteen year old self?.. and it’s kinda stuck since then!
What type of posts do your write?
I write A LOT of different posts really depending on my mood. I write about fashion, interior design, lifestyle, my life, food, and things that I learn or things that I do, or things that inspire me. I also started a new post called Fashionable Causes which focus on fashion for charity which I feel is really important because fashion is not only a superficial thing.
How would you define your personal style?
I’m not sure if I can really describe it, I don’t really just have one style. I like to mix several different styles together. But again I’m mainly influenced by my mood and what I’m feeling at the moment. So I seem to contradict myself sometimes. I can be totally in love with wearing jeans, or I could wear a long skirt some days. I could be feeling edgy another day and the next day be a super girly girl. So it’s kind of all over the place. haha.
Where do you gather inspiration from?
From everywhere, I love finding things for style and blogging, in magazines, online sources that aren’t popularized, tumblr, art, design that isn’t fashion-related. There are so many things that inspire me. But sometimes I come up with random ideas for blogging and I kind of find other things that go with that idea. For me inspiration is everywhere so I don’t really have just one place where I get inspiration.
What’s your favorite part of being a blogger?
There are so many things that I love about blogging. I love that I can share my ideas and get feedback from people around the world! I love that I have met so many wonderfully sweet bloggers, who are very genuine and I feel like I get to see into their life, and I’ve never even met them in person. It’s just amazing how we can connect with people around the world.

Thank you so much for the interview, Kelly! & thank you for being such a great reader as well!
