Why I Started Blogging

Hello my Beauts!

I am pleased to say I went self hosted!! It was such a big step but its very exciting being able to say I now own my own site!

I thought for my first post since going self hosted I would write about why I chose to start blogging.

I began blogging over 2 months ago now and I am so glad I started doing it because I really enjoy it! The blogging community are so amazing and are so supportive of one and other!

How it all began..

In April I signed up to receive Look Fantastic beauty boxes and after talking with my boyfriend I decided I could write reviews on them which meant blogging! I absolutely love writing and I am huge lover of beauty and makeup and I love testing new products so what better than to test and write about them online. I always find reviews of products very useful when it comes to buying something new.

The first step..

Before I started blogging I’ll admit I had never read blogs from people so for me it was a step into the unknown. I did some research into finding the write site to start from and found wordpress to be the best blogging site and it definitely is a great starting site! Of course I’m only 2 months into blogging so I am still learning and having so many bloggers on Twitter is very useful as I love checking out other people’s blogs and getting ideas and help from fellow bloggers.

My blogging ideas..

For my blog I chose to do beauty when I first started as, like I mentioned earlier, I love beauty and makeup and want to share my experiences with other people. A few weeks into blogging I then chose to add lifestyle posts to my blog. I was inspired by so many other bloggers and began to have many ideas for lifestyle posts so that’s why I chose to add it into my blog.

Working with brands..

I would love opportunities to work with brands and for me, its not just the thought of earning money from my blog. I think having the opportunity to work with brands is very exciting and it looks great on your blog!

Going self hosted..

Finally, I chose to go self hosted as the idea of having my own domain and website really excited me! I would love to be able to work with brands on my blog and I think being self hosted will look more professional and may appeal more to brands. I chose to go with Siteground and found the process easier than expected! If you have any questions about going self hosted then feel free to message me on Twitter @CharlotteC_06 and I will try and help as much as I can!

Thank you for reading!

  2. I’ve had brands reach out to me without much effort on my part except for writing about things I love! They will see the passion in your writing.

    Your blog is great!!

  3. I’m so happy you decided to start blogging since you have a real eye for beauty and know what other people want to read. Since I have been blogging for just 1 month, I think it would be nice to collaborate with you.

    1. Thank you! I’m not looking to collaborate with anyone right now but maybe in the future, thank you anyway!💗

  4. Interesting! My reasons for starting a blog are almost similar to yours. I did it cause I was encouraged to do a blog post for my reviews rather than do it on the instagram!
