Name: Nadia Peña
Blog Name: IAMnadiap
Blog type: Fashion & Lifestyle
Where are you from?
I’m from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Why did you start blogging?
Unknowingly, I was inspiring curvy girls through social media as a plus size model. I constantly got many questions regarding my career and how girls could get started in the industry. Also, Girls liked asking for some fashion advice. So I wanted to create a space where I can engage with my followers and continue to inspire through my pictures, to follow their own journey whatever that dream may be.
How long have you been blogging?
I’m a baby blogger. I’ve been blogging now for about 6 months now.
How did you come up with the name of your blog?
I am Nadia P. Is an introduction of who I am, an invitation to my world, and my own personal journey through fashion, faith, family and some of my favorites like food and fitness.
Blogger Fun Facts & Advice
1) Are you an introvert, extrovert, or an ambivert?
I think I’m an extrovert. I’m open to adventure, I like meeting new people, and socializing with my loved ones. Always one of the loud ones of the group lol.
2) Are you a night owl or a morning person?
I’m definitely a morning person. The older I get, the earlier I go to bed. Lol
3) How much time do you dedicate to your blog each week?
Oh wow… I don’t think I’ve ever done the math… but I would approximately say a few hours a day… 3 days a week. It’s a balancing act you know. Home, marriage, my boys and work. So whenever I can, I work on my blog… that’s my baby.
4) What is your favorite social media channel and which one do you put most of your focus on and why?
Instagram is the account I’m most active with. I have built so many relationships through IG. The engagement is fun and continuous. Also, many of the clients I work with follow me on Instagram. Facebook is more for family and close friends. And I just opened a twitter account like 2 months ago.
5) What is your favorite place to eat in Miami?
I love love love Finka Table & Tap. It’s a great restaurant for the family. I love the music, the decor and their food is delicious!! My husband is the executive chef so I may be a bit biased. Lol
6) What place would you recommend a tourist to definitely not leave Miami without visiting?
If you like dancing like me… I would suggest Ball & Chain!! It’s in Calle Ocho. The music, the scene, the energy is very Miami!
7) Are you usually on time or on “Miami time”?
Omg!! I would love to think that I’m always on time but… if you ask my husband he will say Miami Time lol! Sorry.
8) If you could live anywhere outside of Florida, where would it be and why?
I would love to go back to NYC. You can take the girl out of NY… but you can’t take NY out of the girl. I’m such a New Yorker at heart!
9) Coffee or Cafecito? Yes, there’s a difference 🙂
10) Share a small piece of advice for fellow bloggers.
Everyone is once an amateur so just enjoy the process. I think for me personally I remove the pressure of performance, and also I avoid comparison …. allow my creativity to flourish… when the focus is to love what you do… it leads to beautiful places, meeting beautiful people and things start happening organically. Staying true to oneself is powerful!
