Meet the Member: Eat Play Pixels

Hi! I’m Alex Shebar and I blog at Eat Play Pixels. My blog is about all the things in it’s title: Eating the best things, having fun around Chicago and taking pictures of both. How can you hate any of that?

When did you start blogging and what inspired you to start you blog?

I was living in London and going to amazing things that didn’t quite fit in a single Instagram post. I figured I had more to say (and more pictures to share), so I started the blog about a year and a half ago, and it’s been only fun times since then!

What is your favorite blog post that you have written?

I think my first post, which was checking out London’s first naked restaurant (yes, that’s a real thing), is still one of the best things I’ve ever written. Too weird and too much fun.

What do you love about blogging?

What do I love about blogging? Everything! I love taking pictures and sharing stories and showing off the best things the city has to offer. I love when I post something and people go, “Hey, I read your blog and checked that thing out and had a blast.” If I can make someone’s day, or add something fun to their calendar, than I am happy.

What are some brands that you have worked with, or some brands that you would love to work with?

Oh man, in the last year, I’ve gotten the chance to work with Game of Thrones, Rachael Ray, Jamie Oliver, Bulleit Bourbon and AT&T. All really fun. Someday, I’d love to do something big with a movie premier. I think that would be the pinnacle of my blogging experience.
