A Quick Thought on Mentoring + Video & Outfits from My San Jose Trip for #BlogHer14

July 31 2014 | CeCe Olisa

It’s still pretty weird for me when people ask me for blogging advice. I feel like such a baby blogger, but speaking at the #BlogHer14 Conference showed me that I have more to share/give than I realized.

One of the things I was asked about is blog mentoring. In my opinion, a mentor isn’t always someone who is leaps and bounds ahead of you. Sometimes a mentor is someone who is stronger in the areas where you need to grow. When we combine and share our gifts, we can be mentor-partners, mentor-motivators, mentor-friends. I have a few women like that in my life, thank God one of them is Alissa from StylishCurves, who you saw in this vlog. Another is Chastity from GarnerStyle.

I think that mentoring is an exchange of strengths. We all have something to bring to the table, we all add value, its just a matter of sharing.

My blogger boo’s and I help each other and share ideas, offer encouragement and we’ve even developed a true friendship which you’ll see in today’s vlog. It was awesome spending time with Chastity while I spoke at the BlogHer conference Style Mini-Con panel. Check out our weekend antics in this video (and of course, outfit links below!)
