I don’t know about other beauty bloggers but I always feel obligated to review products sent to me. This is why I’m careful about accepting invitations to try out products. If I can’t review, I won’t have the items sent to me–simple as that. Whatever the brand may claim, products sent to bloggers usually come with some sort of strings attached unless it’s a clear “thank you” gift like during festive seasons or special occasions. Even then, I always believe that they were sent in the hope of being featured in a shout-out on our social media platforms.
Tips For Aspiring Beauty Bloggers
Are you an aspiring beauty blogger looking for tips to improve your blog? You are? Then this section is for you! (^_^)
Have you had people who admire you so much they want to copy everything about you? Irritating yes? Annoying much? In this case, I’m not sure if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. In fact, saying that is almost akin to consoling yourself. Well, I’m not sure how I would really react if I catch someone trying to copy my looks or my style but I tell you I was not at all flattered when I found out that my entire blog was copied end of last week.
Happy New Year everyone! Hope you’re all having a blast so far! Somehow, it’s been quite hard to kickstart my blogging mojo and that’s why this late entry into the year. First, I wasn’t keen to discuss the usual R&R—reflections and resolutions—and second, I thought it’s kinda inappropriate to launch straight into the usual topics without some sort of accountability for the new year. HA! So instead of doing either, let me show off my best Christmas present—the Sony Nex-5TY ultra-compact digital camera with interchangeable lenses. This is my new toy that is going to help me fulfil my new year blogging resolution. (Okay, sounds like I contradicted myself but I promise you it’s just one resolution ^^ .)
Recently, a reader by the name of Robyn sent me an email asking for some problogging advice. She wanted to know if it’s possible to make a full-time income through blogging. I’m not sure what niche she’s interested to blog but I think the questions she’d posed are probably at the back of the minds of some aspiring beauty bloggers’ too. Since I was planning to reply her, I thought I might as well address this on the blog too.
