The Man Behind Style and Pepper

style and pepper - man behind the blog | via vmac+cheese

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Jessie (fab creator of the blog Style and Pepper) on a couple different occasions: first at Alt in 2012, and again at a small dinner when I was in New York last May. She’s always fun to talk to and learn from, and when I look back on it now, I can remember one thing that the other girls we were with would always mention: how much they adored her husband Gerard. Described as funny and an all around great guy, I was very curious to learn more about him as today’s Man Behind the Blog. And now I totally get what all the other ladies have been saying. Gerard is hilarious, warm, and supportive, and his answer to what he doesn’t get about the blog world elicited a big “AMEN!” from me. Any guesses as to what he said?

  3. I love this series. You can really see how supportive and loving the men are. But more than that, they all seem to really respect their women for their blogging efforts – it’s just so nice to see!

    What a darling man. I love that he said he had no idea what starting a blog meant and how it would take off over the years. My hubs is at the ‘have no idea’ what this means stage, other than my hours in from of the computer.

    This is my favorite series of yours (and it is hard to pick one). I love discovering new blogs, as well as hearing about the supportive men in some of my favorite blogger’s lives.
