TAG : Confessions of a Blogger

Hello! I have seen the 'Confessions of a blogger' tag on a few different blogs so I thought I would do it too!

When did you start your blog?
I started this blog in May 2012, I previously had another blog which was awful as I had no clue about how to write posts and take photos properly! I'm glad I took the time to learn about html and persisted with this blog!

Have you had any past online presence before (Other blog, YouTube)?
As I said above I had one blog before this one, I have considered youtube for a while but at this point in time I am not confident enough to put myself out there, I think you have to have quite a thick skin to do youtube and be quite secure about yourself! If I got the negative comments I see some people get I would not be able to deal with it!

Why did you start a blog?
I can't remember the exact reason I started my first blog, I think it was just because I had read blogs for a while and thought it would be fun. After I stopped my first blog I kept wanting to start again, I was walking behind a girl in the street once who was talking about her blog and I just knew that I really wanted to give it a go again!

When did you become serious about starting a blog?
I'm not really 'serious' about blogging, I do it because I enjoy it and to be honest if I didn't get the feedback I did from others I probably wouldn't still do it, getting nice comments motivates me to carry on! 

What was your first post?
I think my first post was an outfit of the day! I'm not sure if it's still up or if I deleted it! I actually HATE the dress I am wearing in the post!

What has been your biggest challenge about blogging?
I luckily haven't had any negative comments thank god! But sometimes it gets quite hard blogging when I don't feel like it. I feel bad if I don't post as often and I often compare myself to others, I think I just need to get over the fact that everyones blog is different and everyone has different strengths!

Where do you see your blog in one year?
I definitely see myself carrying on with blogging, I would love to have reached 1000 followers in a year! I don't really mind where it goes though, as long as I am still enjoying it and you are all enjoying reading it still that's all that matters!

What is the most rewarding thing to you about blogging?
This is 100% the other people, I have found so many amazing bloggers that I consider my friends. I think I started my blog at a good point, I was feeling very alone and it was so lovely to meet people who had the same interests as me. I also love getting comments, even if someone was to just write "hi!" on a post, I would still appreciate it so much! Blogging has really made me more confident as I get some lovely comments that make me feel so much better about myself!

What is the most discouraging thing that happens to you?
I think when I don't get that many comments on a post I think people didn't enjoy the post! I am very hard on myself, I constantly compare my blog to others which isn't good to do!

What's your lasting inspiration or motivation?
I always get inspired by others, the way other people design their blog or how they write their posts! I also love reading blogs as it inspires me in terms of the way I dress, if I ever buy something I google for outfit of the day posts and see how others wear it to get outfit inspiration!

I hope you enjoyed this post, as always I tag everyone!



  1. I love these posts, I'm always curious why other people start their blogs as well :) I'm the same I always compare my blog to others and am hard on myself think it is just one of those things! xo


  2. I love the confessions of a blogger posts! Your answers are great, I totally agree about when a post doesn't get too many comments, when it's much less than normal I feel like I've done something wrong! I know I'm being silly though haha!
    Love your blog :) xxx

    1. Aw thank you! I love yours too! :) xxx

  4. I love reading these kinds of posts! I might do one myself!:D By the way I'm loving your header hun!!:D xxx

  5. Love this post, I'll definitely be doing this tag!

    Love your header as well!

  6. Your last tip is such a good idea (about looking up outfits of the days) I'm definitely going to start doing that! I've only started my blog about 2 months ago, I'm currently very busy so not had much time to blog and have started feeling bad about it! I think I need to take your view that every blog is definitely and quality is over quantity! Great post, I love your blog so much :) Rachel xxx

  7. I tagged you on my last post :)


  8. I love this! Think I might do it too xxxx
