Switching from a fashion blog to a magazine was perceived like a big career stepping stone by the public. Weiß quickly opted for doing her own project again, though: Journelles.
The incident makes us think of Susie Bubble. The excentric blooger worked in the online editorial of Dazed&Confused for a short time, however decided against working a renowned magazine to do pursue her own project. Her fashion blog. Anzeichen des Wandels.
Katja from LesMads spoke to Jessica Weiß about her comeback. A sympathetic move. They talk about the idea behind Journelles, the German fashion blogosphere, and the success criteria of a blog.
A very entertaining interview and therefore our recommendation for today’s good read:
LesMads: Congratulations to your new website Journelles, it turned out very well! How does it feel to be back as a fulltime-blogger, or Blogazine owner after a one-year break?
Jessica Weiß: Thanks very much! It feels great being my own boss again. Leaving LesMads feels like it’s been much longer than ‘only’ a year – so it’s great being featured now at my ‘preveious home’.
