HOW MY BLOG STARTED

About two years ago, I created a Tumblr account with my friends for fun, each one of us had our own account and we would share our adventures. On the side, I posted movie reviews, shared my fashion and makeup looks. I really enjoyed blogging however I never had the time to actually take it seriously because of university. Moreover, I’ve always loved seeing/reading makeup tutorials but I never dared creating a real beauty blog even though many people used to [still do] compliment my makeup looks and be impressed by the makeup I wore. But, I was just not self-confident. Same year I created my Tumblr blog, I met Aceel, who is today my best friend, she kept encouraging me to be a blogger [an official one] until our graduation day and that’s when I decided to create a wordpress account and take my blog more seriously. 

At first, I shared more movie reviews and a few beauty related posts. Nevertheless, I noticed that people liked way more my makeup looks/reviews than my film critics. As a matter of fact, I must admit that makeup is something I’ve always loved; I love painting on my face, I love talking about makeup, I love trying new makeup products and for me, eight eyeshadow palettes is just not enough. So I decided to make my blog more related to beauty than to movies [I still post movie review though and I’ll never stop]! 

ADVICES FOR NEW BLOGGERS

  1. Create a blog for passion, not for money or fame. Your readers will feel it if you are passionate about what you write or not.
  2. Be yourself and don’t be scared to share your opinion/point of view.
  3. Don’t forget to be nice, when someone comments on your blog, answer him/her. Support other bloggers by commenting/liking their blogpost. That’s how your blog will succeed and that’s how you make friends.

    It’s funny how Tumblr started out as a blogging platform, but hardly anyone on there uses it for ‘real’ blogging. haha I just use my tumblr to post and reblog photos.

    Thanks so much for the nomination, but I’ve already done this same award. You can see it here if you wish: https://surrealistique.com/2017/08/05/blogger-recognition/
    However, I am keeping a tally of what awards I am nominated for & who gave me the nomination for a future post I plan to do when I make it to 6 months blogging. 😀

    This is so seriously cool! You are adorable and I am really touched for being chosen by you as someone who should be “recognized”. This community can be very individualistic and even mean at times, but people like you certainly make the difference!

      Awww that is very nice of you 💕💕💕 thank you so much!! I really like to help others succeed, and yeah you’re right, this community can be very mean sometimes, and we are not one of them!!!
