Today I had the privilege of talking with Lora Bloomquist, a vintage enthusiast, and successful blogger. Lora has been blogging for over ten years, and originally started blogging in conjunction with the opening of a vintage store as a way to keep customers in the loop. In 2016, she realized she could actually make money from blogging and jumped in with both feet.

Lora told me that even email stressed her out initially, but she’s come a long way in navigating the online world and is proof that anyone with the determination to work hard and stick with it can make it big in the blogging world.

Lora Bloomquist has been hunting down junky, vintage treasures for most of her life. She spent many years refreshing and repurposing them at her own vintage-inspired store and loves coming up with new ideas for old things. She also enjoys guiding others to make the most of their surroundings and fall in love with their homes again.

In this episode, we cover:

  • Lora’s start and experience in blogging
