Today's In A Conversation With is one of my favorite all-time bloggers, John Robertson who is the proud founder of The Everyday Man. The Everyday Man is an online magazine for men which offers a mix of all things fashion, lifestyle and fitness.

What is your blog URL?

How long have you been blogging for and what/who gives you motivation to work hard?
John: I've been blogging for 7 years now. It feels made to write that down as the time has absoloutely flown by. I get motivated easily and I really enjoy what I do. I still feel pretty chuffed that my hobby managed to evolve into my job!

What is your idea of success with your blog and do you think it's hard for people to be 'successful' in the industry now, with so many blogs around?
John: I guess you're successful if when you're making yourself happy and achieving some of your own goals. I've always tried my best to avoid what others are doing and the pressure that a lot of people put on themselves to get higher numbers and to grow. As I started this as a hobby I've never felt that way about The Everyday Man, it's more about writing about and sharing the things I enjoy with others. 

What is your biggest achievement? 
John: I guess being able to go full-time was pretty big asnd that I've managed to keep it going for so long.

Do you blog full time? And if so, how long did it take you to get to that position? 
John: I was doing it for around 4 years before I was able to go full-time. I hadn't really thought about it before as this as going full-time was never my aim but it happened and I'm glad it did.

Do you think the visuals on someones blog is just as important as the actual wirrtin content within a post?
John: Yes. I'm big on branding and visual aspects so I think strong pictures are really important/ They help to tell part of the story.

And finally, what are your goals for the future (if you have any) and where would you like your blog to be in 5 years time?
John: If I'm still doing this in 5 years then I'll be delighted. I try not to set myself too many goals to be honest so just more of the same would be good enough for me, anything else that comes along will be a nice bonus!

I'd finally like to thank John for being part of In A Conversation With. The Everyday Man is here for you to check out!
