Hello, thank you for stopping by Stray Curls!
I’m Angela – the Creator/Illustrator/Artist/Blogger of Stray Curls which is a Blog dedicated to women who are looking to embrace their creativity and improve their online presence in a more magical sense!
My blog is for you if you’re:
- A creative person who loves art and creativity and wants to learn how to make money with it.
- A Blogger who has just started a blog and wants to learn how to grow and monetize it.
- A Seasoned Blogger who has just started making money with your blog but want to learn how to gain more traffic.
This is what Stray Curls is about – teaching like minded people to making a living out of something that they love!
Who am I?
I am a 26 year old Illustrator and Blogger that currently lives in Bangalore with my husband (who’s also my best friend) and my 2 labradors – a cream puff and a chocolate brownie and I have incredibly curly hair. Hence the name Stray Curls.
I had another blog running for almost a year before I closed it down and started my comic series – Stray Curls (a series about Curly Hair) as a fun experiment to improve my Illustrating skills and get more clients to work with.
I had no prior experience with illustrating or blogging but within a short period of time I was able to monetize both these passions and support a family of 4 including myself.
I’ve realized one thing – if you are truly passionate about something, you can make it work. You can make it a business and you can live off of your passion.

Is blogging hard?
Umm… Yes and no. Let me explain.
I’ve made a lot of mistakes. There is a lot to learn in blogging and blogging is definitely not easy. But it becomes better with practice!
I’ve spent hours researching and learning from trial and error. This blog’s main purpose is to help you learn how to blog and the best ways to do it without actually being overwhelmed.
I’ve also come to realize that blogging with intent and knowing whom you’re writing for is very important if you want to have a successful blog. I use my Planner to actually help keep me on the right path at all times.
Here are a few posts I’ve written that will help you start your journey:
