Okay, so I started this blog because over the past few years I have gotten really into nail polish and makeup products. It started with nail polish and then transitioned into makeup as well. When I get into something I give it my all, I follow blogs, I do my research and try to become as knowledgable as I can about the new-found hobby. I found that I needed an outlet to share my knowledge and thoughts because as you can imagine, my husband wasn’t finding my endless makeup and nail polish talk very interesting. I find this blog has inspired me to experiment more with my makeup and try new products and looks so that I can share them with you.
I have also always really enjoyed writing. It was something I did a lot in high school and university and somewhere along the way, I stopped writing for fun. I used to write all sorts of short stories, essays, one-act plays, and so on. I missed writing for fun so this really allows me to combine two passions. I’m probably a bit rusty but I’m working on it.
When I started the blog, I hadn’t realized that WordPress had such a great blogging community that. Connecting with other bloggers around the world has been such an added bonus and I am so thankful for it. It is great to see that there are other people like me out there and it is so much fun interacting with them.
Although I haven’t been blogging for long, I do have a two tips. The first would be to blog consistently. If you can, keep to a schedule and make sure it is manageable. I know there is a rush of ideas at the beginning, but don’t burn yourself out by posting everything close together if you can’t keep up with that pace. Split up your ideas if you can, make a schedule, and spread them out. Scheduling posts is great for this. I try to schedule my posts as much as I can.
Another tip would be to interact with your followers. Respond to their comments and keep that flow of conversation going. Interact with the community by following and commenting on lots of other blogs. You will learn so much by following and supporting your fellow bloggers.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading about why I started my blog and my blogging tips. Since I’m so new to this, I know I have so much still to learn. I spend a lot of time reading blogging advice and other blogs to continually improve and grow with my blog.
I hope you are all having a fabulous Saturday!
