How do you define cool?
I find cool to be such an interesting word because it seems to hold a different meaning for everyone. To me, anything can be cool.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
I know something is trend worthy if I get that itch to tell someone about it. It doesn't take much to get me excited and talking, but when it does happen, I know that I have probably found a gem.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
One of the greatest things about Trend Hunter is how much you can learn on one website. The array of topics includes so much information that I wouldn't have learned about otherwise. Not to mention the wonderful people who work and write for Trend Hunter - it is always a pleasure getting to interact will all the Hunters out there!
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Just like uncovering trends, I think the juiciest posts are the ones that make you laugh out loud, or gasp in shock when you see it. If you react, so will other people.
How do you reset to be creative?
The best way to reset is to take a day off, hang out with friends and family, and just relax with your favorite books and movies. Sometimes you just need to give your mind and body a little break. It's always a night after a long relaxing day that I am my most creative.
