So let’s begin..
My blog started after many many months of consideration. I am a big blogger and YouTube fan, I must be subscribed to around 100+ different beauty YouTubers and I love nothing more than spending my free-time watching them. Due to this I have quite the collection of make up and am always buying new things so I thought, hey, why not give people my opinions on the products. So hey presto, it begun.
Who knows where it will go, or where I will end up, but for now I’m enjoying the blogging community and being a little creative within my days.
A piece of advice I would give to new bloggers is to not feel bad if you don’t post like your normal schedule. It should never be a forced effort. When I first started I was so enthusiastic that I wanted to post everyday and then one week I got a massive workload and wasn’t able to keep up and I really beat myself up about it.
Now I give myself a bit more breathing space. I’ve decided to only post on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. And I tend to write a lot of posts in one day and then schedule them all. This way it doesn’t seem like an effort. I’ll wake up one day and think yep, I’m gonna blog today, write about 5 posts and schedule them all, then I have just over a week to do what I want and be re-inspired.
So my nominations are:
- Another One Called Becky
- Fun House Vision
- Styled By McKenz
- Fairy Godmother Beauty Blog
- A Makeup Junkies Blog
I hope you all take part in the tag and I can’t wait to see what advice you give.
