I've seen this tag flying around the blogosphere for a few weeks now, and decided it was about time to give it a go myself! I love tags, especially when you're in a bit of a rut as to what to post on your blog, they're the perfect type of post to keep your readers interested and also for everyone to get to know you a little better! So here goes...
When did you start your blog?
I set up this blog in May 2012, but my first ever post was on 9th June 2012!
Have you had any past online presence before (Other blog, YouTube)?
I did have another blog before this for a couple of months, it was under the same name, however all my photo's I'd uploaded suddenly disappeared and I had to delete my blog in the end as it just looked an awful mess. However I feel I've done a much better job with everything this time round :) I've never had any other blogs or youtube accounts previously, however would like to set up a Youtube in the future once I get the confidence to put my face on videos to the entire world! (Wow, it sounds so daunting put like that)
Why did you start a blog?
Id been reading other Blogs and watching Youtube videos for months and I loved how everyone in the blogging world seemed to get on so well with each other. So I really wanted to be a part of this and share my thoughts too. I also started to get into nail art and nail varnish and I thought it would be a great way to post photo's of my designs.
When did you become serious about starting a blog?
I've always been serious about blogging, although it is just a hobby for me I try to put as much effort and time in as I can. I really hope that my blog will continue to grow as it has done so far. Although I wish I had more time to put into it :(
What was your first post?
My first post (other than Bloglovin' link) was a review on the Nails Inc Catwalk Collection. So right from the start I was posting about nail varnish, ha!
What has been your biggest challenge about blogging?
My biggest challenge is TIME! I work full time so I barely get the time to come up with new ideas for posts or get the time to sit down and write them or take photographs either! I always have to wait until the weekend to actually see some natural daylight to take some decent quality photo's. Which also makes it hard for me to do FOTD and OOTD posts too, which I would really like to start including in my blog.
Where do you see your blog in one year?
Well, I hope its still here for a start, and that I don't have to abandon it. Also, I just hope it continues to grow and get more people involved. I'd also really love to attend some sort of bloggers meet up. I live in the West Midlands, so if anybody knows of any... please let me know! :)
What is the most rewarding thing to you about blogging?
Definitely the comments, I love seeing that people have actually thought about and engaged with the babbling that I post here. Also, each time someone new joins/follows my blog, my heart skips a beat. It's very encouraging! Love you guys :)
What is the most discouraging thing that happens to you?
I'm always comparing my blog to others, especially when it comes to the amount of followers other blogs have, its ridiculous. But I guess reader interaction is what counts most! Some people could have lots of followers but not many comments on their posts etc. So I dunno. But I'm happy with what my blog has achieved so far :)
What's your lasting inspiration or motivation?
Motivation for me mainly comes from other blogs/bloggers. I love reading their thoughts on products. Which usually makes me go and spend MORE money on things I really
don't NEED ;) And then I end up posting about them myself. So yeah, just keep on doing what you do girls :) & Thank you all!
I Tag, anyone who fancies doing this!
