I got this tag from http://www.ashllyd.com/ and just thought i'd give it a go! Hope you enjoy :)
When did you start your blog?
2011 but I never really posted on it as I didn't know what to post and just wasn't feeling the whole blogging thing. I think this was mainly because my blog didn't have a purpose and I didn't have a hobby really. When I started to discover YouTubers and beauty bloggers I started getting more and more into make up and then I started posting properly/frequently in September 2012.
Have you had any other online presences?
Yes, I've been on Piczo, MySpace, Bebo, Foursquare, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook. You name it I probably have a profile! I've always been quite social where networking online is concerned!
Why did you start a blog?
To share my thoughts and hobbies online with like-minded people.
When did you become serious about starting a blog?
September 2012, I really go into make up and loved that people would post online giving reviews to help other people, with the same love of beauty. It's a very welcoming and lovely community that I'm glad to be a part of.
What was your first post?
It was a post about me having a good day haha, a sort of fashion, but not really type post. You can find it, here.
What has been your biggest challenge about blogging?
Keeping going when I had 0 followers! I had 0 for about a month! I was thinking, No one is reading, why am I bothering this is kind of pathetic. I carried on anyway and no I have almost 60 followers and 10,000 Page views! Plus I love the other bloggers and reading their blogs so that keeps me motivated.
Where do you see your blog in one year?
I hope my blog can become more established and serious in the future. I hope the content continues to improve and I hope I can gain some more lovely readers! Basically I just want things to keep going up from here!
What is the most discouraging thing that has happened to you?
Nothing discouraging has happened to me as of yet but what does discourage me is how some bloggers attack other bloggers and their blogs. I don't think there is any need for it, it's just cruel! We should all support on another and love what we do.
What's your lasting inspiration/motivation?
Buying new products that I love, looking and reading other people's reviews and finding them really interesting. This especially motivates me when the review is so good and so well put together that I actually consider buying the product like someone I don't even know has just persuaded me to buy a product I 10 minutes ago knew nothing about, just by taking some decent photo's and writing a few well constructed paragraphs. That's insane right? I love when I see my views going up and knowing my opinion matters. When people comment on my posts giving me positive feedback I makes me feel really warm inside knowing that my little corner of the internet has made an impact on someones decision!
I tag YOU if you're reading this!! Write you response and leave it in the comments!
