2 in 1 Tags! My Writing Process and The Secrets of Blogging

Leave a Comment
Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to an amazing start. I got tagged to do a couple of different tags about writing and blogging recently, so I decided to combine them into one post!

My Writing Process

Kelly from Hint of Blush tagged me to do the My Writing Process tag. 

1. What am I working on?

I'm working on getting some reviews done. Some of them are of products that I was sent, but most of the products that I plan to write about are things I bought and really want to share with all of you. There's also a face of the day that I need to post.

2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I don't know if this is really different, but I try to think of everything when I'm reviewing a product. I try to give really tough reviews because I don't want you to read my blog and go buy a product and not like it because there was something I missed during the review. Sometimes, I do think of things that I should have said later, but I do try to tell you all of the information so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to purchase a product.

3. Why do I write what I do?

This is probably going to sound so shallow, but I really like talking about beauty products. I really do. One only has to turn on the news to see how much ugly is in the world, so let's talk about pretty things here. 

4. How does your writing process work?

I'm trying to get better at being a more organized blogger, but I'm still not at a place where I can get on a posting schedule. I just started making lists in order of importance of things that I need to post. This has helped a lot. I like to take photos, test out the product, write notes, then flesh it out into a full post.

That was the first tag! There's one more to go, or you can go to the end of this post to see who I tag.

The Secrets of Blogging

Fellow Texas blogger, Lily, from Beauty with Lily tagged me to do The Secrets of Blogging tag. Some of these answers may be repeated in some form from the previous tag.

1. When did you start blogging and why?

I started blogging in October, so almost 10 months ago. It was something that I had really wanted to do, but I had to just work up the courage. I really enjoy talking about beauty products and sharing information with others. The interaction with everyone is so much fun.

2. How many people in "real life" know about your blog?

I never tried to keep my blog a secret, so everyone knows about my blog. My friends and family have been so incredibly supportive of my blog, and I'm so grateful for that.

3. What are your favorite posts to read? 

I really like monthly favorites and empties posts because they have lots of mini reviews all rolled up in one post. I really like hearing what people think of a product once they've used the entire thing. I also love reading reviews.

4. List a blog you have discovered recently. 

I need to add some new blogs to my list. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I've followed some fashion blogs lately, and those are always fun. The last one I added on Bloglovin was Style Sunrise.

5. Which posts are you most proud of?

Um...I'm pretty sure this would be the equivalent of picking a favorite child. Honestly, I'm proud of all of my posts. Some are definitely better than others, but I put a lot of effort into all of them. I guess it would have to be the ones that are the most helpful to my readers, so you tell me.

6. What advice would you give to future bloggers?

Blog from your own point of view and perspective. Don't feel like you have to be like anyone else. Also, just start blogging if you want to do it. Don't feel like you have to wait. Happy blogging!

Huge thank you to Kelly and Lily for tagging me.
I would like to tag these bloggers:
