Blogger Feature: Alexie

Why did you start a blog?

I needed a creative outlet. I was so stifled living in D.C. that once I moved to Boston, I wanted to come out of my shell and just be myself.

What does your blog cover?

Originally my blog was going to focus on love, sex, and politics. I still dabble in these topics, but added fitness and just my every day life more broadly.

What encouragement would you give new bloggers/those who are interested in starting?

Just do it. Speak your mind, be yourself.

What struggles do you encounter?

Finding time to write is the hardest. I'm working on building my fitness career, so that pulls my focus most of the time.

Favorite/least favorite part of blogging?

Figuring out Word Press can be a bear sometimes! Also making sure that what I write resonates.

How did you come up with your name?

Lexie is what my best friends call me (just dropping the A). Wayne is my Father's middle name.

How long have you been blogging?

It'll be one year this summer

What has been your greatest achievement in this industry? Personal or professional

My blog is so small! I'm just happy that I did it. And I trademarked the name :)

Who are some bloggers/influencers or creators in general that inspire you?

My influencers are local Boston fitness peeps. I love the community they have created!

What do you hope you’ll get out of being a Bloggers Live Boston member?

Meeting more bloggers in the Boston area and getting advice on how to grow my blog.
