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!
