Hey guys! What’s up? I know, it’s been kinda quiet lately. Do you know the feeling when you ask yourself where the time went? Yeah, you do? Because I’m literally asking myself that every single time I look at the clock. Anyway, why am I telling you this? Because it’s been ages since I wanted to introduce you guys to my fellow blogger from Berlin, who’s been in the blogger business for a very long time! He’s one of the few male fashion bloggers out there, carrying the torch of fashion for the guys and providing us with everyday and special occasion outfits, trends and fashion forecasts so that we’re always in the know about what’s hot and what’s not in the world of menswear. So now it’s time to let Oliver Eigensinn from ZEITGESCHMACK do the talking!
Tell me a little about yourself and your blog! When did you get started and what do you write about?
I started ZETGESCHMACK in 2009 together with a friend. At this time I was studying communication management. I was always into the new media and wanted to make contacts in the fashion business. I thought a blog would be a great adventure for me, where I can follow my passion.
What’s your goal with your blog? What kind of things do you want to be your blog remembered for?
My goal was always to keep the readers informed. Show them trends, cool products and and give them some style advices they can buy directly from the online store. I love when people tell me they love my blog or they read them constantly. It makes me really proud.
Did you ever experience backlash about telling somebody that you’re a blogger? How did you deal with that situation?
It happened several times. Especially when blogs were not that big people were laughing about it, named it a time stealing hobby instead of real work. If that happens, remind yourself why you do it, and believe in yourself. You know that it is the right thing what you do.
Do you ever get tired of blogging?
Sure! Sometimes I ask myself “Why am I doing this”, “Does somebody read me”, “Isn’t this Blog just a waste of time”, but when I have this feelings, I start to analyze the problem and change some things to see the advantages of writing for ZEITGESCHMACK and have motivation to do it.
What’s the best and the worst things about blogging?
Best: You get invites to the best parties and meet the coolest people
Worst: A blog is 24/7 work. There is always something to do.
What’s the biggest misconception about you as a blogger?
That blogging is not a real work and people just do it to get free clothes.
How do you choose the topics you’re going to write about?
I am just writing about things I love and what I am interested in.
When did you discover your passion for fashion?
When I was really young (about 7 Years old) I was modeling in basic school for a Kids Shop in my hometown. Since then I always had a passion for clothes.
What’s your take on fashion trends?
I love to try them out. If they fit me, I will definitely wear them. No matter what other people say.
What projects are you working on right now?
We changed the layout in November last year and with the new design I am still trying out new topics. ZEITGESCHMACK was never so personal than in these days. I could imagine to make Youtube videos someday.
