confessions of a blogger.
Recently, Meghan from Mainly Meghan tagged me in her "Confessions of a Blogger" tag. I really loved reading her answers, so I thought I would post my own.
When did you start a blog?
I started the creation of beauty is art. in July of 2011.
Have you had any past online presence before? (Other blog, youtube, ect.)
I briefly dabbled with another blog - one focused on music. The posts were more like random articles I had written about new CD releases or a review of a concert. Beyond that, nothing major.
Why did you start a blog?
My dream has always been to write. After I graduated from University, I was having trouble finding writing jobs or an internship. I started this blog as a way to keep myself motivated and to showcase what I could do.
When did you become serious about starting a blog?
One day, I was hit with inspiration for this blog, and it has been a big part of my life since then.
What was your first post?
My first post was an introductory post that outlined my reasons for starting a blog.
What has been your biggest challenge about blogging?
My biggest challenge has definitely been making sure that I have enough time to really put my all into every post. Sometimes it's hard, but I've done my best!
Where do you see your blog in 1 year?
You know, I really hope that it just continues to grow and get better in the next year. That's all I can really hope for and work towards.
What is the most rewarding thing to you about blogging?
Being able to express myself and to write for an audience is an incredibly rewarding experience. I feel very lucky that anyone reads my blog at all.
What is the most discouraging thing that has happened to you?
In terms of blogging, there hasn't really been anything thus far.
What's your lasting source of inspiration or motivation?
Beauty and fashion are a huge inspiration to me on a daily basis, so this certainly helps to keep me motivated. Also, reading other blogs is a great source of inspiration as well.
