rewardStyle Banner

Screen Shot

You may have noticed we have taken down our Christmas import.io banner, today we have replaced it with a rewardStyle banner, which we will update regularly.

 

rewardStyle is a company that allows publishers to get the credit they deserve when advertising products. For example, if you use rewardStyle and a visitor to your blog clicks on an item and then goes ahead and buy the item of clothing you (the publisher) will gain some commission.

My Week Shared With You! BBC, Studio XO, BAFTA, Little Big Planet

Morning!

 

Chloé and BAFTA

 

Firstly there is only one week to Christmas, big EEK! Can not wait to stuff my face with lots of food. Being from a Caribbean household, christmas dinner is traditional (turkey, stuffing etc) and then some (lamb, fish, beef etc)!

 

I had a lovely but challenging week just gone as I did some more filming for the BBC Computer Science program I am presenting. We had four main locations this week, first up was an awesome Fashion Technology company called Studio XO in North London. They are big in the wearable tech game at the moment, making an array of outfits for Lady Gaga including a flying dress and also light up LED shoes for boy band JLS. I really enjoyed interview co-founder Benjamin Males as we shared the same Fashion Technology vision and it is always humbling to meet others that express the same view as yourself, reassures you are on the right track.

“What a week it’s been” (Alan Carr Voice)

This week has been a mighty one! Very fast paced and fun and equally exhausting. I am writing this post on a train back to London from Manchester but before I get into why let me back track to the beginning of the week.

 

It all started with a lot of madness, we were booked to do a workshop for bloggers on Thursday and had done no prep for it, so Amy and I had to be “all systems go” to pull something out of the bag. The workshop was to be one on one sessions with each blogger, 80 confirmed, to advise them on technical changes they could make to improve their blog.

Hello, the #30daysofcoding may be over but did you really think you would be rid of me?! (Or that I would want to stop!)

 

Each Thursday I will be giving a tutorial on a new piece of code I have added to the blog so make sure to check them out! Today I am attending a blogger’s event with Chloé which I am so excited about! We will be giving advice to bloggers on how to ensure there blog is as engaging to their readers as possible as well as answering any other questions they might have for us regarding their blog.

 

For this post however, I will be showing you how to add resource pages to your site. This will allow you to share and celebrate other resources you read and follow with your readers.

It’s Chloé here, I am so excited to be posting this blog post today. Amy has been coding for #30daysofcoding ALL November to set this blog up and I believe she has done an amazing job of it! They say do something for 30 days straight and it becomes a habit so I thought it cool to have Amy code to increase her skills and she has grown so much as a coder. Well done Amy!

 

Every Monday I am going to be writing a post about chloédigital, what we have been up to in the past week and what we excited about for the week to come. The first year of chloédigital has been an absolute whirlwind adventure, one that I could not have imagined going in. I have learn’t that putting yourself out there in the world with an idea or a certain view point really creates miracles. In the last year I have been fortunate to meet lots of people interested in coding and fashion technology so we thought it best to set up a lifestyle blog to share with you the ins and outs of this niche and exciting industry especially from the London view point. I noticed I was always telling people to own their own blog in order to document their life journey as a memoir to look on in the future. Imagine what the internet is going to be like in 10 years from now, I think everyone should have a piece of it, so here we are with our view.
