One of my best blogging friends Laura (her blog’s Laura Likes Beauty and is so worth a read) nominated me for the Blogger Interview Tag and I’ve finally gotten around to answering the questions. I think this tag is such a great idea because it gives you a chance to get to know the person behind the blog and learn why blogging means so much to them! Anyway, here are my answers:
1. How did you get into blogging?
I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time and just never took the plunge! Friends of mine told me I should start a blog (given the amount of beauty stuff I own) but it was actually my ex (who is a good friend of mine) that really gave me the kick up the backside and confidence boost I needed. I guess I was worried that there wasn’t room for another blogger and that I couldn’t really bring anything different to the table. Now that I look back on that, I was being stupid! So yeah, that’s how it took off – all thanks to my ex!
2. What advice would you give to bloggers starting out?
Um…don’t be silly like me! I sat and thought so much about it (which I tend to do, I over think everything) that I kept talking myself out of it. If you want to start a blog, on any subject matter at all, then get on and do it! There is always room for one more blogger and each blog is unique in it’s own little way. Oh, and get on social media (especially Twitter) and then come say hey! And join in #ltbloggers!
3. What would be your dream campaign?
I think something charity related and helping to promote organ donation. That would be amazing and one of my blogging goals is to share my transplant story so to have the ability to do that through a related charity would be wonderful.
4. Do you have a plan for your blog?
Erm…I have ideas of how I would like to see my blog develop but not a set plan as such. I’m just enjoying it and you learn so much as you go so I’m enjoying that!
And I would like to nominate the following awesome bloggers to do this tag if they have not done so already and anyone else that wants to take part:
