“You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”
- Rabindranath Tagore
Hi, my name is Christoph, I'm 20 years old and I live in Aachen, Germany. At the moment, I'm studying International Business at Maastricht University and in 2018 I will start my Master in Business Intelligence and Smart Services.
I always loved to see other bloggers & influencers prosper and making a living with something they love and enjoy - blogging. For me, it seemed desirable to express my thoughts and creativity as a blogger and for a long time, I thought about starting a "career" as a blogger myself. However, the fear of spending a lot of time on this hobby and still failing in the end always discouraged me. But as Rabindranath Tagore pointed out with his inspirational quote above, you cannot achieve your goals without putting any effort into realising your dreams.
In 2016, I started my Instagram account @trendablaze to inspire people with my lifestyle related content and I am pretty happy with its success so far - I was able to reach more than 10k followers in less than a year! Soon I recognised that I love to connect with people from all over the world and that blogging is something that I enjoy every day. That is why I started to diversify my portfolio by adding social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook & Pinterest.
In June 2017, I took the next step and created this blog. My goal is to take you with me on my journey of growing my online presence and (hopefully) becoming a successful blogger one day. Thereby, I want to share all strategies that work for me to add to the success of your online business. These tips are mostly about blogging and social media and help you to become successful yourself!
