I’ve wanted to blog/write about makeup for the longest time, I just never got round to doing it because I always thought I wasn’t good enough like those you see on youtube and social media. But, this January, I bit the bullet and decided to start one. Ever since writing my first post, I have felt my confidence grow and grow, not only in my blog but in my makeup skills. I’m no where near a professional but it’s what I enjoy doing. It’s also so lovely to have a community of people throughout your blog who support you. I wouldn’t know what to do with myself if I didn’t start Rachael Louise Beauty so I’m so glad I did!
Technically, I’m still a new blogger and I learn new things every day. My first piece of advice is not to compare yourself/your blog to others. I’ve never quite grasped the whole photo-layout thing so I choose to do it my way. It may not look as ‘professional’ as some other blogs, but it’s what I’m comfortable doing. Your blog comes from you, not anyone else.
My second piece of advice is to post regularly. I don’t necessarily mean every single day but maybe at least once a week. I always notice a difference in my blog when I’m able to upload as regularly as possible. Try and set a time and a day where your post will be uploaded, or when you have time to sit down and write a post. WordPress have a tool where you can set a time and date for your post to be uploaded, make the most of that. It’s helped me a lot.
Overall though, just enjoy it!
All of these blogs are amazing for their own reason. If you’re not already, go and check them out and give them a follow!
Thank you so much for reading!
