Happy Blogmas Day One 🌲✨! I thought I’d ease my way in to blogmas with a little bloggers Q+A! I’m so excited to post everyday 🧡
About my blog:
When I first thought about starting my blog I spent hours thinking of the coolest name, I wanted something snazzy and catchy so people would remember it. But realistically that isn’t me, I don’t like flowers so floral was out of the window.. I wanted something to do with makeup but I couldn’t think of anything that wasn’t already taken. So I just settled for HAYLEY! Which is very ironic because it’s my name ha.. my posts mainly consist of Beauty Related thing such as; Makeup reviews, Makeup Hauls & the odd Lush haul! I also try to add some fashion posts in there from time to time with an OOTD or Clothing wish list.
My main blogging category is:
Beauty / lifestyle
You can find me at:
How and why did you get into blogging:
I have always had a love for blogging, ever since I made my first blog back in 2012, It was an epic fail but I really enjoyed writing about my life.. it was just before I started getting into makeup so beauty related things were never a topic. I also remember seeing beauty crush’s blog and thinking to myself ‘I could do this’. After years of convincing myself to JUST DO IT, I decided to give in and started my blog properly this September.
If you could offer some words of encouragement to a newbie or frustrated blogger, what would they be?:
WRITE WHAT YOU WANT. I think it’s so easy to get lost in what everyone else is doing that you forget why you even started your blog in the first place. Write what you want to write about whether that’s a book review or a highlighter palette you’re loving! Remember it’s YOUR blog so write about what YOU want to write about. I’d also say for any newbie wanting to start blogging, just go for it. Don’t think about what others will think of you, once you’ve started all of that won’t matter anymore 🖤
What has changed most about the blogging industry since you started?:
I’ve only had my official blog since September this year so it’s kind of hard for me to answer that, but one thing I’d say is how many people actually blog now.. from when I started my ‘fail blog’ back in 2012 there’s so many people with blogs now. When is great tbh
Where do you hope blogging will take you in the future:
I blog for fun and do it as an hobby so I haven’t really thought too much about the future. If I had to answer though I’d love to make blogging a full time job for me, but who knows 😉
WHO DO YOU TAG TO DO THIS?:
