Lisa and Kaitlyn are the bloggers behind Sisters Marie.

Describe your blog:
Two girls who share everything from relatives to clothes. Lifestyle inspiration from fashion to décor, recipes events and more (we promise to keep the rhyming to a minimum!)
What is your favorite post you’ve written or your favorite series/type of post?

We really enjoy our “rock & swap” posts because that idea of swapping clothes with a friend and making something new again is where our business began (We own two websites: Because I Shop Too Much bistm.com and Because They Grow Too Fast btgtf.com).

Other then that, one of our favorite posts is actually one of our first. Even though the look and content seem rudimentary, I loved it because the situation was so unplanned – we showed up a family party wearing the EXACT same outfit head to toe and that was when we knew, these things need to be documented somewhere!

What is something you wish you knew how to do related to blogging?

It would be awesome to learn how to write code so when we want to change a design element about our blog, we don’t have to pay someone to do the work. We would also benefit from further education in video editing – we constantly have fun ideas for video tutorials but don’t have enough background in editing to put them together in a professional way so that’s high on our list.

Why did you start blogging?

Lisa maintained a personal fashion blog for a few years prior to ours and had built a great following of fellow bloggers that I found really interesting. Then when we launched bistm.com and btgtf.com, we wanted a creative outlet that would allow us to not only connect with the users on our sites but with other fashion-minded females who were looking for a fun style destination. Over the past two years, it has become our second “home,” a place to share all the moments we experience together. We look forward to continuing the transition into a lifestyle blog which allows us to expand on our content and invite readers to take a peek into our lives (beyond the closets).

What is your favorite social platform?
Instagram – even before we were bloggers, we were both very interested in photography so it’s easy to love a constant steam of beautiful photos. In addition to keeping up with all our favorite friends and bloggers, it’s a great way to stumble upon new products and places. We are always taking screen shots of things to remember and check out later!
