Very new to the world of blogging, any advice?

Recommended Posts

I created my blog yesterday. There is nothing to it yet but one little test post. I am having the hardest time with the aesthetics of it. I myself am an all things Halloween type of person. Quite dark in my personality. All of which I am perfectly fine with. :) As i was looking  through themes in wordpress of course i managed to sniff out a couple Halloween-ie ones. Would that really work all that well with a beauty blog though. Besides just overall major nervousness about sharing with the world this is my biggest headache right now. Any thoughts on the delicate balance of presenting a blog as close to your personality as possible while not taking away from the subject?

Well blogging should be about a mix of your personality and information on a particular topic, do don't hold back on your personal style of writing or emotion, let it all shine and be genuine!

 

As a blogger myself, the best advice I can also give is to create relationships with other bloggers, offer to write stuff and see what they can offer in return. Build these relationships and you'll always have a place to write beyond your own blog.

Make your blog reflect your personality which will give it originality. If you stay true then your followers will see your authenticity and will appreciate it so much more. There's a lot of people copying other blogs but if they can showcase themselves through the blog then there's greater potential.

Also make sure you're consistent with your posts, I feel that is key!

What is your blog url?

    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
