I have been working on getting up some fun posts for the next couple of weeks, so bear with me once those are complete. I didn’t want to only have 1 post this week, so I thought I would upload a tag that will allow you to get to know me a bit more. I am slowly transitioning from the beauty blog to a lifestyle blog, so I thought this was a good way to help with that.
When did you start blogging and what made you start?
I started blogging 3 years ago in November. The main reason for starting this was to have a hobby that I could enjoy. It was during a time of my life where I was only working and going straight home, I didn’t have anything to spend my spare time with. I figured I would start a blog and see how it goes. I guess the rest is history!
How did you come up with your blog’s name?
When I first thought this name, I thought it was the most basic name to have for a blog. However, the blog was initially me just talking about my life and getting a look inside of it. I have thought about changing it a few times, but everyone has told me to leave it, it perfectly describes how I want my blog to be.
Who is your favorite lifestyle blogger?
My favourite blogger, not sure if she is considered a lifestyle blogger, is Mix and Match Mama. She is actually the sister of the Bachelor Sean Lowe. She talks about cooking, the adoption of her 2 daughters, books and everything else in between. I admire how much of a hard worker she is and she seems to have it all together.
Where do you get your inspirations for posts from?
A lot of inspiration comes from reading other people’s posts. Everyone posts about something different and I love how I can gather inspiration just by reading a title of the post and looking at photos. Of course, a lot of inspiration is from my everyday life and what goes on around me. Pinterest and Instagram are a great help, as there is an endless supply of photos and posts from so many people.
What was your first blog post about?
My first post was called “The Blog Life…” ha
I was introducing myself and letting you know what to expect on my blog. If you want to read it, here it is: First Post
What are you favorite things to write about?
I really loved writing about makeup. It was so much fun to post about my favourites items and recommend products to you. However, it got pricey and I started to lose interest. Nowadays, my favourite things to write about include life experiences, decorating and book reviews. You will definitely be seeing a lot more of those!
What advice would you give to a lifestyle blogger who’s just starting out?
Allow yourself to post what you feel like. If you start to create posts that you are only creating to generate views then you will lose interest quickly and your readers are going to know that you aren’t creating genuine content.
Also, have fun! A lifestyle blog is about things you enjoy, show that through your posting.
Is there anything you wish you could change about your blog?
The one thing I always want to change is the quality of my photos. I have come a long way since I started, but I always think there is room for improvement. Either than that, I think my blog has gradually matured which makes me happy.
