Helping Each Other Out: Blogging How-To’s

Blogging has grown into such a different monster from what it was when I first found out about it. It used to be every nerd’s outlet but now most of it’s sort of been an extended arm of PR and advertising. When I started blogging, it was kind of really easy because you didn’t have to think of content; you just wrote whatever came to mind. Blogging these days, however, requires a little bit more forward-thinking. I’m still trying to understand the blogging world now, but I have found a lot of helpful people whenever I read my feed.

On Beauty Blogging: Thoughts & some of my new local favorites

Okay, this isn’t technically about beauty blogging. And if it were, I don’t know if I have anything of value to say on the matter, or if people would really care about my opinion on it. Yet, anyway. I do have a post on why I’ve ventured into the world of beauty blogging, which I wrote about two weeks into it. I started this blog in late October, after a weird new love for makeup. I say “weird” because it’s really not something that people, including myself, expected me to get into. I liked photography, books, art, and music.
