Interview With a Disney Blogger
What made you want to get into digital content creation/start this account?
When I was in college, I was always on every social media platform. I was on Vine, YouTube, Facebook… you name it. I wasn’t really involved, but I always thought it would be fun. After I graduated, someone commented on my personal Instagram page that I post a lot of Disney photos! It was at that moment I decided to stop posting so many Disney photos on that account and create a new one. I started following other Disney accounts and people who loved Disney! My love of Digital marketing grew from there and so did my creativity!
How long have you had your @Livfantasmically account?
I started my account in November 2017, but I changed my handle in November of 2018!
When did your love of Disney start?
I’ve been loving Disney since I was a kid. My parents were taking me to Disneyland since I was a baby and I’ve been a passholder since I was 2! My parents and I would always go to Disneyland growing up and my love truly came from the memories we made, the love of Disney movies growing up, and the magic that always came with!
How do you come up with such fun content idea/what inspires you?
I get inspired by a lot of other content creators! I also get inspired from watching Disney movies, playing with makeup colors, going out to a craft store to see what sparks a new idea, etc. It also depends on what or how I am feeling and sometimes something will spark!
Who is your favorite Disney character and why?
My favorite Disney character is Sorcerer Mickey (hence my handle name). When I was a kid, my favorite movie was Fantasia and I watched it so much that I ruined the VHS tape. From there, my love grew. He was super underrated for a long time until Fantasmic was released and Mickey and the Magical Map!
What do you love most about the Disney Instagram community?
I love that the Disney Community can be so supportive, so creative, and so full of love. I’ve met a lot of my best friends from the Disney Community! I love that we can all talk about our love of Disney to start and find other things/passions that we both love!
Do you have any advice for others who are looking to start Disney blogs on Instagram?
If you dream it, then you can do it! Don’t be afraid to be you, post what you love, and share your passion! If you want to create a Disney blog, or any blog, you can just post for fun whenever you want, or you can plan it! I love planning my posts or posting randomly!
What made you start @Livsbeadedmagic and why do you enjoy beading?
I haven’t been able to find a job due to COVID-19 so I started a beaded bracelet business to help me stay creative, stay busy, and help pay my bills. Since starting at the end of May, I’ve been able to get more creative and inspired by my bracelets that I have so many new ideas that I’ll be releasing later! I love beading because it’s a simple way to show my love of Disney, my love of fashion, and my love of all things sparkly!
