Sylvia is the blogger behind The Sandwich Damsel.

Describe your blog:

The Sandwich Damsel is a review blog of sandwiches, burgers and other sandwich-like items centering around the Chicago area but reaching out to other cities as well. The reviews veer toward the storytelling genre, and are highly personal to Sylvia’s life. life.

What is your favorite post you’ve written or your favorite series/type of post?

I’m so new, but my favorite post that I’ve written is the one about Goldyburger in Forest Park. It touches on the movie “Boyhood” and, more importantly, on the love of my life (besides food), Jason.

What is something you wish you knew how to do related to blogging?

I wish I were better at SEO, although I know the places to go on the Internet to learn more. I also wish I knew how to schedule my week so that I could make time for two posts weekly.

Why did you start blogging?

I missed reporting, and along with that, writing.

What is your favorite social platform?

My favorite social platform is Instagram. I don’t suffer from FOMO when I look at it, it’s oftentimes more funny and fun or artistic than braggy Facebook, and I’m not bombarded by “Follow me!” “Look at this link!” posts everywhere. I’m still adjusting to social media, even after all these years.
