The Christmas carnage is now a distant memory, so sit back and check out our Blog Spotlight with Dear Designer editor Carole King for some New Year interiors inspiration! 

Tell us about your blog, how did you get started? Why did you choose your subject?

I started my blog in 2009 as a way to document everything that inspires me in the world of interior design, which is a particular passion of mine.

How do you source content for your blog?

My content is a mixture of reviews, personal projects, new things on the market, events I have attended and inspirational images.

Do you have a favourite post or one that best sums up your blog?

I like to compile moodboards and designs for real or imaginary rooms. 

Do you write reviews? How many people read your reviews?

I do write reviews. My blog is read by between 700 – 1,000 people per day.

How did you build a following for your blog?

By posting regularly. By reading and commenting on other blogs in the same genre. By attending blogging events and networking. It takes time. 

Are you a PR friendly blog? Do you accept contributions and content for your blog?

I write all of the content on my blog myself but I am open to collaboration ideas. 

How best do you like to be approached by PRs? 

By email please.

You can find Carole tweeting @DearDesigners.
