The Henny & Coco the brand was created by Jennifer Hall-Fitch. It all started when she was inspired to create cute children’s accessories after giving birth to her baby girl. She was always looking for dainty hair bows and headbands and could never find any that suit her taste, so she took it upon herself to create them for herself and others. Henny & Coco has any and everything a little girl could want–pretty bows, tassel jewelry and glittery princess crowns! Her blog is where she shares her products, as well as her style tips for minis!
How long have you been blogging? I am just a “baby” in the blogging world!!! The Henny and Coco blog has been up for three months.
How did you come up with the idea? I have played with the idea of starting a blog in the past and just never did it. To be honest, after attending the Bloguettes workshop last month it made sense to start blogging along with building my brand. I sat next to a girl who uses the same site as me for our websites, so she showed me a few things and WAA- LA! I began my first post later that day, however I didn’t make it public for a week due to figuring out the system.
What was the hardest part in getting started? For me, I was lucky because I have a website through Squarespace setup already. Also, I was fortunate to have the help of my web designer and friend Heather steering me in the right direction. By the way, Squarespace is super easy to use if you are looking at what to use for blogging.
How do you maintain a balance between other aspects of your life and your blog? I am still learning the concept of balance! Being a nurturing mommy, a catering wife, and running a small business where I do all the designing, and now a blog, it can get intense. However, I love being a busy body!
How do you stay connected with other bloggers and creatives like yourself? I try to do my best to get out and about by attending workshops, events, and markets. It is great because people like myself are there and we can inspire one another and discuss our businesses!
What’s your favorite social media channel for personal use? I use Facebook, however, my posts are more for my business.
What’s your favorite social media to use for business/blog related stuff? I am obsessed with Instagram and Pinterest! I have a feeling I am not the only one.
Who do you look up to? I look up to my babies… so pure and innocent with the world at their fingertips! Becoming a mother has taught me so much, life is such precious gift. Hence my line is called Henny and Coco… “Henny” is my son’s nickname and “ Coco” the dream name I wanted for my daughter/ the beautiful Coco Chanel.
What advice do you have for others? The advice I was told… Be consistent and keep up with your blog by planning posts ahead of time.
What’s the best advice you’ve received? Be consistent! The Bloguettes teach you some pretty amazing things in their workshop… I learned a lot in the two days of being with them about blogging, photoshop, fonts and so much more! I will be attending many more to keep up with the latest and greatest.
