Our guests today is one of the bests woman’s bloggers in Kuwait Tidbit Du Jour is blog about everything fashion, gadgets and other stuff that makes it really interesting blog. We’re glad to have them as our guest in IWB.
Here what they have to say:
1. Why did you choose Tidbit Du Jour as a name to your blog?
We wanted a name that represents what we do. A “tidbit” is a small interesting piece of gossip or information, and “Du Jour” means “of the day”. That’s exactly what our blog is about: We post interesting information daily for our readers.
2. Tell me about yourself?
We are three young Kuwaiti women who share a passion for life and all it offers. Some of us are happily married others are happily married to their jobs ;). We consider ourselves extremely driven in our respective fields, but we try not to take ourselves too seriously!
3. How long have you been blogging?
Tidbit du jour is a toddler, we are barely a year old. We started in October 2008 but took a 4-month break due to personal reasons. We managed to get back to the blogosphere a few months ago, and hopefully we are here to stay!
4. How many writers (Members) in your blog?
We are three bloggers: Mrs Dickens, Mrs Drakvl, and Mrs F
5. What kind of category you see your blog in?
We would fall under the “General lifestyle” category. Our blog includes news and reviews on gadgets, design, food, fashion and anything that falls in between.We also try to keep our readers up to date on the latest happenings both locally and globally.
6. How did you start blogging?
Initially, We had an email tradition that involved sharing snippets of our Internet finds. Everyday or so, we would forward an email entitled “daily doses” to each other which would include anything from an inspiring image to a funny viral video. So basically it was very much like a blog, but not a blog. After a while, our bookmark folders were bursting at the seams with all the information we had accumulated. So we decided to document our finds in a blog, thereby having a wider audience for our quirky interests and enjoy unlimited storage ;). One thing led to another and “Tidbit du jour” was born.
7. What was the reaction of the people around you about your blog?
Our families and friends are our biggest supporters, and their responses have been very positive. Fortunately, we also have been receiving great feedback from our regular readers and this is what ultimately encourages us to keep doing what we are doing.
8. What kind of marketing method you used for your blog (How did you promote your blog)?
It was mostly word of mouth, partly via email and recently we started listing our blog on several of the main social networks to increase our exposure.
9. Do you have any new ideas coming soon to your blog?
We recently revamped our blog design and added a couple of cool new features, like the “snapshots” section where we place quick links to interesting finds around the web. We are always looking to improve our blog and regularly find new ways to keep it fresh and interesting.
10. What do you advise the guys/girls who just started blogging?
Stay true to yourself, blog about what you love, and most importantly, have fun!
11. Any last words to your readers?
Thank you for recognizing Tidbit du jour and giving us this opportunity to give our readers some insight on what our blog is all about. We would also like to thank all our readers who take time out of their day to pay us a visit, and we hope to always keep you informed and entertained.
