I’ve been blogging for nearly two years now. My blog and I share a birthday (17th of October, if you fancy sending my blog a birthday card). I’ve been motivated and I’ve been totally lazy. Haven’t we all?!
I love blogging though – I love the whole community that comes along with it. Fabulous, gorgeous, inspirational women and men; the most aesthetically pleasing Instagram feeds I’ve ever seen; immaculate blog themes that make my blog look like a baby’s art project.
I like being able to write whatever I want: whether it be about makeup, my ever-thinning hair, or random bits and pieces from my everyday life. I’ll be moving into a new house soon, and you better believe I’ll be blogging the whole process (expect a lot of “JESUS CHRIST SOFAS ARE EXPENSIVE” and “help, I’ve fallen in love with a biscuit tin but it’s £19”).
I’m even getting to grips with photography – although you might notice a distinct lack of them this month. As I tweeted last month, moving in with my parents while I wait for my house to be ready is all well and good, but not when I can’t find a flat white surface to do my flatlays on!
Still not confident enough to post pictures of myself on social media (bar a cheeky few when I’m really feelin’ myself and my phone camera is blurry enough), but I’ll get there I’m sure.
I’ve had some great opportunities – any ‘blogger mail’ I get is gratefully received (and then shown off to my entire family, who literally don’t care about makeup whatsoever) and squealed over.
I’m lucky to be involved with brands like Coconut Lane; some seriously sassy girl bosses who – despite what anyone on Twitter says – support bloggers and offer a lovely community to be welcomed into.
So basically, what I’m trying to explain is that I love my blog. It’s still a baby; it needs some work (and a pipdig layout, I reckon), but I’m getting there. Watch this space!
Are you a blogger? Tell me what you love about blogging and let’s all have a big mushy love-fest together. That sounds wrong. Ignore me.
