I already know Emma pretty well, so let’s see what I learn now 😉 we chat pretty much daily so I can tell you she is a lovely girl! Her blog is beautiful & her Twitter comments are definitely relatable 😂
What made you decide to start blogging?
I started about 4 years ago, and I was just scrolling the old interwebs, as you do, and found some blogs I just couldn’t stop reading! I fell in love with them and the idea of having your own little place to write about whatever you like. (I started mainly doing beauty but I so travel and lifestyle too now!) I looked into it and started a month or so after being addicted to those other ones!
Do you having a blogging niche? Or do you just write about whatever you enjoy?
So I started doing beauty because makeup (and underwear to be fair!) are definitely my biggest obsessions, but I feel like my blog kind of grew with me. What I write now is mainly in travel, lifestyle and beauty though! I feel like its good to keep it fairly relative because I’m not sure my followers would be too interested if I suddenly started talking about space! (But who knows, maybe that’ll be my new thing 😉)
Who would you say are your blogging inspirations?
- Kayleigh Johnson (couture girl) was one of the first I followed, I love her style and pictures, and she has a style of writing where she just feels like your friend. Her instagram is unreeeeal too!
- Em Sheldon (Em Talks) is another I’m obsessed with, she writes about so many different topics, but she has some really down to earth posts about life which have been really helpful to me! She’s such a lovely girl and will always have a chat with you too!
How long have you been blogging?
I seem to be prematurely answering everything haha! About 4 years now!
What is your favourite social media platform for sharing your blog?
I love instagram, although all those changes did make it less enjoyable let’s be real! But that – especially insta stories definitely gets the most engagement for me and I really enjoy spending time on there most days.
When you start blogging you’ll most likely be so inspired, and have so much to write about, but when you blog long enough that love for it comes and goes. I would say push past it because you’ll always come back to that place of inspiration and it really can be so rewarding – you meet so many lovely people through doing it too! Definitely try and write about what you’re most passionate about, don’t go for what you think is a money maker or a freebie zone, because as much as there is room for everyone here(!) blogging is saturated and you’ll lose love quickly if you’re not passionate about what you’re doing. I would say to anyone debating it, just go for it! Use a free hosting platform (blogger or free WordPress) first, and then see how you go before paying too much for anything – as it can get expensive! But enjoy over everything!
Thanks Emma! I love your insta stories too 😂 plus keep up the good work & stay sassy. We need more about underwear from you girly!
