The Secrets of Blogging Tag

Hi Ladies!
Today I am going to do a personal blogging tag that I was asked to participate in by two of my lovely blogging buddies.

The Secrets of Blogging

1. When did you start blogging and why? I started blogging September 2013 because my husband suggested it and I thought it was a good idea. My full time job isn't something that necessarily "interests" me, it pays the bills though. I didn't really have a hobby or anything that I could call my "thing" but beauty and fashion have always been something that I am passionate about. All these things are what inspired me to start my own blog.

2. How many people in "real life" know about your blog? Most people in my life know about my blog in some sense. I talk about it ALOT since it has become such a huge part of my life. Some people don't quite "get" it or understand how important it is to me. That is why I am so glad that I have such great blogger friends who understand where I am coming from.

3. What are your favorite posts to read? My favorite posts to read are reviews and hauls. I almost always do research before buying a product. Reading reviews and seeing swatches definitely helps me make decisions. I also love hauls because I get to see new products out on the market and what products fellow beauty bloggers have decided to purchase. I really value all of their opinions and input on product.s

4. List a blog you have discovered recently. I recently went to some local blogging events and have been other Boston bloggers. Because I have discovered several, I'm going to give you a few to check out! 

Chowing Down By the Bay- Chelsea is originally from San Francisco but is currently living in Boston. She is a food and fashion blogger who loves to share her experiences at different restaurants in the area but also throw some fashion into the mix.

Mainely Styled- Elizabeth is a fashion and lifestyle blogger that posts a ton of OOTD's (outfit of the day) and loves to share affordable fashion finds. She also posts about food, home decor, and health and fitness. 

Nouveau Cheap- G is the go to woman for info on beauty sales, special offers, and new products and programs. I have been following her for a while on Instagram but recently started following her on Bloglovin too. Thanks to El for telling me to check out her site!

5. Which posts are you most proud of? I wouldn't say I am more proud one type of post over the others. I put a ton of time and effort in ALL of my posts. I do feel that my fashion posts (What's in My Closet and Get the Look for Less) take significantly more time than my beauty posts. It isn't always easy finding similar or more affordable items so I am constantly searching the web for these things. I always feel so accomplished when finishing these type of posts.

6. What advice would you give to future bloggers? Make sure that you enjoy what you are talking about. If you don't enjoy it, it will show in your writing.  Also, blog because you love doing it but don't let it consume your life. You don't want to do it to the point where you don't love doing it anymore. You also need a break to spend time with the people (and animals) in your life. Its very easy to go overboard, it has happened to me on several occasions. You don't want valuable time and memories to pass you by while you sit glued to a computer screen. 

Thanks to Lily and Chelsea for tagging me!
