I don’t know if this is apparent to all of you but many bloggers make money out of their blogs. Well, I do. There are many ways beauty bloggers can make money and most of the sources of our income revolves around you. Yes, you! At the simplest level, we are able to generate some blog revenue via banner advertisements owing to your visits that contribute to our traffic numbers. And at a more interactive level, we can also generate income when you make purchases via some of our affiliate links.
I bought myself two pairs of new shoes this week and one of them is a pair of sneakers. I recall the last time I wore sneakers was like 10 years ago. But because I don’t exercise anymore, I just don’t see a need for them really. Well, I’m not sure if I’ll get back to doing any serious exercises with them but they’ll definitely come in handy for some upcoming outdoor activities in the weeks ahead. Other than that, I doubt I’ll wear them much on a frequent basis because they are completely out of my fashion radar. But I kinda like the fuchsia color. If only I could find matching socks too.

It can also be borne out of a personal experience. So today, I’ll share my thoughts on five areas that I think a better beauty blogger should avoid.
