Meet the Blogger: Kirsten Krason of 6th Street Design School





Q: Which came first- blog or business?
A: My blog came first. But I always knew a business would follow. I started my blog about 6 months before I graduated from school so I already had clients ready once my business started after graduation. It was seriously great. My blog has been my biggest form of advertising and I've never had a shortage of great clients. 

Q: What has been the best aspect of blogging for you?
A: The best aspect of blogging is the feeling I get from great comments. It means so so so much to have someone say, "wow, great job!" or "we love your blog!". It's hard when you're starting out a blog to know if anyone is listening or if anyone cares. The fact that I've been able to grow my readership and write about things people actually care about is astonishing to me. I love it! 
Where do you turn for design inspiration?



Q: Where do you turn for design inspiration?
A: I always turn to blogs for design inspiration. My favorite blogs to read are fellow designers like me. I love reading about their sources or recent projects. There are so many talented people out there! 

Where would you like your business to be in 5 years?
In 5 years I'll probably have two kids total. Maybe 3??? So I'm really not sure how the business will run. Hopefully I figure out how to balance it all! I learn so much with each new client and project so hopefully in 5 years my business will run more efficiently and who knows I might even have an assistant. 



Just for fun- what are top must haves for designers?
- a supportive family
- great clients
- a good attitude and personality
- some great fabrics
- a space to work. Somewhere that inspires you. 

Thank you so much Kristen for being a guest here, and sharing a little more about you and the work you do! She is a fabulous chica so make sure and say hello!
