Two years ago on October 19, when I started blogging I had no idea what I was doing. To be honest sometimes I still feel like I don't know. I have learned so much from this experience good and even bad. I've met so many wonderful bloggers and I've become friends with them too! I wanted to make YouTube videos, like any other girl. My first makeup inspiration was Dulce Candy from DulceCandy87, she taught me how to put on eye makeup for beginners! Her channel really made me feel confident! I had been watching videos for a couple of years, so I thought it would be a good idea. But it was more difficult then I thought it would be. In the end I realized making videos was apparently not for me. Even though I was inspired by these videos, creating one myself was not something I could do. I was nervous and scared. But in the process of my decision I ended up making good friends. Some I still talk to often and others I have unfortunately lost touch with. We were really good friends.
So since making videos was not my thing a few months later in June I decided to try out blogging. I didn't really know what blogging was. I wrote a couple of posts, but no one saw and I didn't know why so I deleted them. A few months after that, around September 7th, I was on Facebook and Laura Vitale from Laurainthekitchen made a post saying to come join her in a twitter chat. So I was like this is so awesome, I've been watching every since she started. But then reality set, when I realized I didn't have a twitter. The chat was almost over, I had ten minutes left to join the chat. So I took the risk and created a twitter. So now I'm down to five minutes left. So I signed up, but then I had to follow like five people in order to move on. In my mind I'm like are you serious. So I followed Laura Vitale, Tia Mowry, and Tamera Mowry, and two others. So now I'm down to a minute left and I can finally move on. So I had to think of something in 30 seconds to tweet. I tweet how I was so inspired by her. When I sent the tweet, there was no time left and I thought I missed out. So when she responded I almost fell out of my seat. I was really excited and it made my day! She has inspired me to enjoy cooking. She also helped me bring back memories of me as a child trying to help my mom cook, especially on the holidays. Now that I am older while me and my mom are in the kitchen cooking we share stories with my 15 year old sister (she likes to watch!)
From that day on, I had a twitter but didn't know what to do with it. I remember the day I started getting followers. One of the first followers were @TMariebeauty74, I was surprised but grateful. Although I could not understand how a Beauty guru on YouTube found me on twitter and decided to follow me. Like I said I am very grateful to her and I really appreciate it a lot. I felt like I was a nobody compared to all of these Beauty gurus and bloggers. Since I did not want to make videos because I felt uncomfortable, a month and 12 days, on October 19 I made the decision to start blogging since I had a twitter and I could share my posts there. I decided to start blogging to share my interests and write inspirational posts. I remember my first blog follower was another person on YouTube, her name on there was Ms.ScreamQueen. We talked to each other, but then I do not know where she went. I hope she's ok!
I did not want to be boring and continue with my story, but this is basically how I got my twitter and why I started blogging! I hope you all enjoyed really reading. Writing this post brings back so many memories for me. I am so grateful to everyone who gave my blog a chance. I am so glad I started blogging, because I learned a lot. So many people on YouTube have inspired and they continue to. I do not know where I will be in another year with blogging, but I am glad for these two years!
