Why did you start blogging?
I started writing my blog in October 2016 because I love Ballroom and Latin dancing and I love anything beauty related…the 2 overlap naturally given I have to look the part as a dancer whether I’m in lesson, exam or competition so my hair and makeup are an important part of my hobby. I can also talk the hind legs off a donkey so why not start a blog and write my ramblings and see what happens! I enjoy writing my blogs and I enjoy interacting with other bloggers and seeing their recommendations or views on things.
Two pieces of advice?
Advice that I would give to new bloggers is purely what I have learnt so far.
Interact with people!!! Gaining followers was slow at first but the more I followed other bloggers, liked posts and made comments, the more followers, likes and comments I was gaining. In doing this not only was I gaining followers but I have learnt a lot in reading the other blogs and it’s so much fun 🙂
The second bit of advice is to use social media as much as possible.
I use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Sometimes with Instagram I post a photo, perhaps just a layout of my makeup, not to promote a particular blog post but it keeps my blog name out there and keeps interaction flowing with people who follow me.
I nominate the following people (I won’t be offended if you don’t share blogger awards on your page, the nomination is there but no obligation to post!) Moreover I nominate them as blogs you should check out!
These ladies all have amazing Instagram accounts too so check them out!
