My reasons for creating this blog:
Lately (the past year to be exact), I have been obsessed with anything and everything surrounding the knowledge of skincare and makeup. I mean, I can spend hours and hours on YouTube watching people talk about new products, what works for them, watching tutorials, etc. For me, it’s the wealth of knowledge that has the most appeal. The fact that we can all communicate and get each other’s opinions/thoughts for free on this widespread existence we call the internet is fascinating to me. Why limit what products work for oily skin to just your colleagues and family? Entering the world of blogging is where I realized there is so much potential to learn and explore, as well as share my own endeavors!
Two pieces of advice to new bloggers:
Timeline. Timeline, timeline, timeline. I have a huge excel sheet I keep of ideas for each of my blogging “outlets.” For example, I have Magical Makeup Mondays, Wanderlust Wednesdays, and Facial/Fancy Fridays. All future ideas are categorized as such, and I move them to the “complete” category once I have published a piece.
Find your niche. What makes you stand out? Oily skin? Me too. So share your secrets. Mastered the winged liner? I haven’t, give me some tips! Crazy over drugstore products? A lot of us are too – share what you think we need to test out.
