1. How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for 1 year regularly, however I started my blog over 2 years ago but was never into it this much until now.
2. What inspired you to start a blog?
I have always loved creating my own space on the Internet when it was piczo back in the day and then MySpace. Also watching you tubers and reading their thoughts on products inspired me to share my thoughts and opinions
3. What goals do you have for yourself and your blog?
Goals I have is to post weekly 2-3 times, and for my followers to grow and hopefully one day have the confidence to start a YouTube Chanel!
4. Where do you see your blog in the next year?
Within the next year I hope my blog is completely re-vamped and as I said before constantly being updated with posts every week. And hopefully more blogging opportunities.
5. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years I would love blogging along with YouTube to be a part time job that is the dream.
6. What have you learned since you started blogging?
Since blogging I learned to be myself and write what I like to write about and perhaps it won't get as many views as the brand new urban decay palette but I'm enjoying writing what I write, even though people may not like it.
7. What are the positives and negatives of blogging?
Positives of blogging for me is seeing how many people are actually interested in what I say, and take the time out there day to leave lovely comments, and I also love how big the blogging community is and how supportive one another is and for negatives there's not many apart from the people that tend to leave the negative comments- there is just no need!!
8. Would you want to turn this hobby into a career in the future?
A dream of mine would be to sit in my room all day and write blog posts about things I'm passionate about and also start a YouTube, but for now I'll keep dreaming ay!
9. Are you influenced by other bloggers?
I'm always influenced (especially when it comes to buying makeup because if bloggers say it's great of course I NEED IT!!) by other people not just bloggers but you tubers and things I see in the street or people I speak to on a day to day basis! You can be inspired by literally anything and anyone!
10. Has blogging changed you? (Have you made any friends or experienced new things)
Blogging has changed me it has opened up all new doors, I have a few people I speak to here and there regarding blogging which is lovely to speak to people who you have so much in common with. I'm much more confident in speaking to strangers and bloggers and confidence in blogging ( I actually feel like I know what I'm doing) all in all I do not regret starting a blog and I just hope it grows and grows and continues to be as lovely as it is :)
