Hello Beauties, I hope you have had a great weekend.
Tonight I decided to do a 'tag' since I haven't done one in a while and I think they are great to read. I'd like to thank Erica from 'Abundance of Erica' for tagging me. Please check out her answers too, she is lovely.
Have you had any past online presence before? (Other blog, YouTube, etc)
No, this was all really new to me at the beginning. Was starting blind so to speak
Why did you start a blog?
I started blogging because I enjoyed reading blogs, probably even more than magazines. My sister suggested I started doing my own one. After some deliberation I decided to give it ago.
When did you become so serious about starting a blog?
I think I really started getting into the swing of things around October time, the blogging community are really friendly and helpful and there is a lot to learn from your blogging peers. Everyone has helpful hints and tips and I found that very helpful and encouraging. I actually consider Georgina from Makeup Pix3 a bit of a mentor she has been so helpful and supportive and has been following me from more or less day one. So grateful chick thank you .
What was your first post?
Oh crikey it was so cringeworthy. It was a short intro post and it was hand on heart - AWFUL.. too cheesy, i'm glad I got my swag together.
What has been your biggest challenge while blogging?
Finding the time sometimes proves challenging, There is so much you want to blog about but 'real life' sometimes takes over. What I need to keep reminding myself of this is a hobby for me and it shouldn't stress me when I haven't updated the blog in a couple of days but it doesn't play on your mind because you don't want to let your followers down. The great thing about your followers though is that they are always there for you and are happy to see you anytime you post - well I know that's how I feel about the blogs I love.
Where do you see your blog in one year?
I would love to achieve 1000 followers in the first year - this is a pretty BIG goal but I like to aim high. I think i've done well with amount of readers I have already and i'm grateful for every follow I get. I'm as happy now as the day I got my first follow.
What is the most rewarding thing about blogging?
I love when people comment on my posts and chat to me, this means I am doing something right but also it has helped me establish some really good blogging friends and that is the best feeling.
What is the most discouraging thing about blogging?
Not so much discouraging than a pet hate but I don't like it when people leave comments on your post that simply state 'great post let me know if you want to follow each other?' I think it is quite rude, surely if you like my blog for itself you will follow me, not as some sort of bargaining tool to gain bloggers for yourself. I don't however mind people leaving there links, you have to do what you have to do, but it is polite if you are going to comment whether you agree with the content or not, it shows you are in fact interested.
What's your lasting inspiration or motivation?
I love checking my page views, and i'm always looking out for comments and feedback, There is nothing better when a post gets good feed back and it shows people are reading your work. It is exciting. I have enjoyed the short time I have been blogging and hope 'A Scottish Lass' continues to grow.
I tag, Leslie, Georgina & Luchessa to take part but of course if you are reading this and want to do it, awesome. If you do please leave your links to your post so I can read your confessions too xxx
