When I set up my Blog, I didn’t really think I would use it – although I had, and still have such a huge passion for writing – I just didn’t think I was any good at it, and I didn’t ever want anyone to read any of my work.
I set up Beauty Addict way back in 2012, and only posted very haphazardly throughout 2012 and 2013. At that point, I didn’t really know or understand the concept of promoting a Blog post through Social Media – so I don’t think anyone has ever read my very first few posts.
If you really want to see how bad it was, my very first post was a review of The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Serum – have a read (and a laugh) here
I went through quite a rough time in my personal life, so for quite a long time, I neglected my Blog terribly, and it really was only last year that I felt ready to start Blogging and writing again.
I do still feel really nervous about people reading my writing, but for me, writing is such a massive passion of mine, and I know that I’m not brilliant at it, and to all of you fab guys out there who read my posts, I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.
When I tell people that I have a Blog, most of the responses I get are along the lines of ‘you get free stuff to try out’. No, for me, Blogging is about combining several things in life that I enjoy – writing, beauty, fashion – so combining all of my passions together = my Blog.
For me, Blogging is about so much more than actually posting content – its about engaging and building relationships with other Bloggers and that is one part that I really love – to feel part of a community is so important to me.
Thank you to all the Bloggers and non-bloggers who read my posts – I really hope you enjoy reading them, and if nothing more, I hope I can make you all laugh at my god-awful writing!!!
