Today we’d like to introduce you to Inga Sergienko.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Photography has always been an interest of mine, ever since I was young. Growing up in Florida and then moving to Boston about five years ago, I have really learned to appreciate the four seasons in New England. I just recently graduated from a master’s program, so as a student, going out and taking photos between library breaks was a great way to unwind. I joined Instagram around when it first came out and always had a personal account and then decided to create this new account to share all the things that I love. It’s been really rewarding to know that something I really care about and enjoy doing, other people have responded to as well.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I originally started out as @blondeinbeantown but then, I found myself traveling more and sharing photos I was taking on vacation, so it didn’t really make sense to brand myself as just being in Boston, even though that’s where the majority of my photos are taken. So, as I tried to think of something different to relate to the content I was putting out, I kept saying that what I was trying to accomplish most was sharing the things I was finding in Boston and in other places. So, that’s how I chose “blondefind.”
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Blonde Find – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I create digital content and blog about certain travel destinations and unique things to see and do. I’m proud of the photos that I take of ordinary things but can make them appear different and unique with certain lighting and editing techniques. I’ve developed a good understanding of social media and content creation. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and consulting with with local businesses.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I’m a recent marketing graduate student and I’m working in event management so, I would love to take the experience I’m getting from starting a website, creating content and my understanding of social media and take it to my full-time career. I’d love to combine my event-management job with my social media and see where it takes me.
