“The Work We Do” is an interview series that asks creatives with daydream-worthy jobs how they got where they are—and what it’s like to live a day in their shoes. This week, I’m speaking with designer, stylist, and blogger Joslyn Taylor.
Joslyn’s blog, Simple Lovely, was one of the first I read when Aron and I first started Hither & Thither, together, back in 2008. And I credit her with some of the site’s success: she called it one to watch at Alt Summit, way back then. (She also interviewed us!) We’ve been in touch since, and I’ve let her know that (along with Julia, of course) she was actually an inspiration for this series: at one point a corporate exec with a blog on the side, she’s reimagined her entire career.
I’ll let her tell you the story.
You’re a woman of many careers: editing, styling, blogging, designing. Tell us how you got your start.
Many people think careers develop in a straight line, but mine definitely didn’t.
