Tag: The Secrets of Blogging

Hey everyone! I wasn't tagged specifically to do this, but I did see it on Kate Spitz' blog and thought it would be a good way to get to know more about me and my blog! 

1. When did you start blogging and why?

I started blogging 2 years ago (today, actually!) and I wanted to start a blog because I had been watching beauty gurus on YouTube for years before I even thought about it. One day, something just clicked in my head that this is something I wanted to do because I love everything beauty. Plus my husband, then fiance, said I should go for it. I'm pretty camera shy, and I love writing, so blogging was the way to go for me. 

2. How many people in "real life" know about your blog?

Alot of people believe it or not. My parents read my blog, I post everything I do on my Facebook page and people at work know I have a blog. I don't see it as a big deal to keep this secret because it's a part of my life and I want to share it with people.

3. What are your favorite posts to read?

I have this strange obsession with empties/products I've used up posts and videos. I don't know what it is, but seeing what people have used up is just really cool to me. I also love haul posts and reviews of products.

4. List a blog you have discovered recently.

Hate to say it, but I've been reading the same blogs for quite a while now, so I can't remember what I started following last!

5. What posts are you most proud of?

I'm proud of all my posts! Haha, not trying to toot my horn or anything. I just feel like I work hard on what I post and this is what I want to do for a living eventually, so I try to put my best efforts into everything I post.

6. What advice would you give to future bloggers?

I don't really feel like I'm a good person to give blogging advice since I know I have a ways to grow with everything, but honestly, don't let everything be about numbers! If you focus so much on how many followers or page views or sponsored posts you're getting everyday, you'll go mad. Seriously, when I started of course I wanted to do well because it's what I love, and I almost obsessively checked how I was doing. It's not worth the time doing all that, so just do you and not worry about numbers. If you're putting in the effort and you're happy with where you're going, good things will come in due time. 

I hope everyone enjoyed, and I tag everyone to do this! It was fun and I'm glad I came across it :)


  1. So glad to see you did this tag! Congrats on 2 years blogging!!

    1. Thank you very much! This was definitely fun to do, I love tags!

  2. I started blogging for the exact same reasons! I'm kinda camera shy too- that's what's always kept me from making a youtube channel. And I can't imagine how amazing it would be to blog for a living! I would love to do that one day too!

    1. It would seriously be a dream come true! If I ever get the guts to actually post videos on my YouTube channel, that's what I'd want to do for a living along with my blog! :)


Thank you for all your comments! I'll reply back as soon as I can :)
