Confessions of a Blogger Tag

Hello Loves!

I was tagged by the beautiful Jasmine from the Green Eyed Monster to do the "Confessions of a Blogger" tag! I enjoy reading why others started their blogs and their experiences with it so thought it would be a great way to also share mine! Thanks Jasmine! You should definitely check out Jasmine's blog - my favorite of her most recent posts is her Silly Saturday which made me sit and laugh out loud myself like a weirdo. 

When did you start your blog?
So I technically started my blog February 2012 - but I finally kicked myself in the butt and decided to dedicate myself to it starting the beginning of this year, and I'm so happy I did. 

Have you had any past online presence before? 
I guess if you consider facebook and twitter a presence haha then yes but not a blog or anything like that, no. 

Why did you start a blog?
I enjoyed reading others blogs so much that I thought I would love to join a community that enjoyed my passion as much as I did. I also found that my friends were always asking me advice on products, or taking them shopping, or doing their makeup (which I love and wouldn't have it any other way) that I thought this would be a nice way to share my thoughts to more people. 

When did you become serious about starting a blog? 

Like I said above, I started the blog last year but really became serious about dedicating my time to it this year and have loved every minute of it thus far. :)

What was your first post?
haha oh goodness, it was basically saying that this was my first attempt at blogging and that I was very new to it so bare with me...and it had a lovely picture of a cat with photoshopped makeup on - which I thought was pretty cute! 

What has been your biggest challenge about blogging?
Probably keeping up with posting regularly - because I am also a full time student with two internships and a part-time job that my time needs to be well thought out, hence the reason most of my posts are published in the wee hours of the morning! Also, learning the correct lighting with photos and such has been a challenge. 

Where do you see your blog in one year? 
Hopefully with more friendly followers reading it and I would love to get enough followers to start making videos!!! I love blogging and the fact that even one person tells me they read it and enjoys it - it keeps me going. It's definitely hard putting yourself out there! 

What is the most rewarding thing about blogging?
Definitely friending so many wonderful people who share the same interests as I do. I enjoy so much when you all leave comments and share your opinions with me. It's very rewarding to know that even if just one person smiled while reading my blog and tells me that they read it - that pushes me to continue it and even lose sleep to post and 'hangout' with you all through my blog. : )

What is the most discouraging thing that happens to you?
I'm really happy to say that I haven't (knock on wood) had really any negative things happen yet during my blogging experience - and not to say there isn't people out there who think it's "silly" or stupid. But who cares about their opinions, I enjoy it and that's all that matters! 

What's your lasting inspiration or motivation?
Absolutely, hands down, those of you who take the time to come to my blog and read what post and comment and share your thoughts with me, I try to reply to everyone of them and truly cherish those little comments! Knowing that people read it is my motivation to keep thank you to everyone who supports my blog. Also, to my wonderful boyfriend and roommates and family who share my posts and encouraged me every step of the way. Like I said before it's difficult to put yourself out there in this big ole internet world haha 
So there ya go! Thanks for reading my answers and to Jasmine for tagging me! Hope you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me as a blogger!
