My Plans For Halloween And Christmas

Hello!

It’s Lau. And I feel like it has been a very long time since I’ve made a post, this isn’t really beauty or hair related but I would like to talk about my Halloween and Christmas plans.

I’ve seen a lot of people talk about it on Twitter, Halloween is next month and Christmas isn’t really close but I would like to let you guys know if I will be doing Blogmas and Blog-tober. Is that their names? I’ll just refer to them as that.

And the answer is..

YES

I will be doing it, even though I’m rather busy I will be attempting it. It just means a lot of planning ahead.

I’m super excited for the Halloween and Christmas, cold seasons are my absolute favourite.

But anyways, you will expect more real posts soon. I will be doing that but I just wanted to let you know this before anything else goes up.

I hope you enjoyed this post, thank you so much for reading.

I will see you all soon.

As a blogger it can really be difficult to find companies that want to work with you, let alone pay you.

However, there’s one website that can really help you out with that, and that is Get Blogged.

You can sign up to it at Blogger Outreach, it’s really easy. You can link up your website and Paypal, so when you have submitted your blog post for a company, they can pay you when it has been accepted.

I use this website and I really like it! The way it works is on your DA. DA meaning Domain Authority. It ranges from DA5 to DA40, the higher your DA the more you get payed.

You’ll have to check it out for yourself, I really do recommend it.

Life Of Blogging Documentary – Part One

Hello!

It’s Lau and todays post is nothing like I’ve ever done before, I want to really get in depth about life as a blogger and make a documentary out of it.

There will be parts to it, I want to interview a lot of people so if you’re up for it then please let me know.

So, without further or do.. Lets begin this adventure.

Life of Blogging Doctumentary

To start this story, we should really know when did blogging first come about? Who created the first blog?

It was even called a blog at first, it was called ‘Personal Homepage’ and Justin Hall first created Links.net. I actually wanted to include him in this post to ask him some questions about blogging.. So I actually tried to contact him and I didn’t get an answer back.

Before I get onto talking to other bloggers, ex bloggers and active bloggers I want to talk about my experience.

My Experience

I haven’t been blogging for very long but for the last 5 months I’ve really learnt a lot about blogging, life outside of blogging and the other bloggers. It’s very safe to say that blogging is always on my mind.. “What should I post?” “Should I go out in the pool or do some blogging stuff?”

That was a genuine thought I had today and I chose blogging because I love it. It’s very much my first priority. Around my second month of blogging, I wanted to get a plan. I thought it would make me a lot more professional because now my URL doesn’t end in “wordpress.com” instead it is “.com” and I love that aspect of it. Of course, because I’ve upgraded to personal.. now my mind id on premium. I always want the best for my blog.

Now that I’ve rambled on, I want to go onto other people’s experiences.

Diary Of Ellie

I asked a few questions and here are her answers.

Do you find yourself checking your stats a lot? Her answer: I check my stats a lot, probably more than I should!

How has blogging made you feel? Has it made you feel frustrated at time? The only ever times I become frustrated with it is when I’m trying to photograph products for posts and when I can’t get the shot I like it annoys me so much.

Do you feel part of the community?I’m pretty much always feel included in the community and I love it!

What is life like outside of blogging? For me, I’m always thinking about what post I should do next? I tend to make a lot of ‘real life’ decisions based on blogging so if I see a new makeup product I Like, I think about whether it would make a good blog post, although I do have a life away from blogging I think they’re both slowly integrating into one.

Alex

I asked her a few questions. Here are her answers;

You’re anonymous. Have you ever had any moment of panic where you thought someone knew your identity? Oh 100% — when I first started, I gave away so much information about myself that it was crazy. Looking back, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone found out – but if they are then they’re doing a good job hiding it😂I wouldn’t mind becoming unhidden but I don’t know, I like the mystery.

What’s the lowest point where you wanted to quit? And have you ever written that post but stopped yourself? I’ve actually never even thought about quitting – I mean, sometimes I can’t be bothered to type up posts (hence the spelling mistakes) but I love to share my life with my followers and I love hearing their feedback so quitting is the last thing on my mind right now.

Have you had a hate comment? If so, did it affect you? I’ve never had one – I mean, spam can be pretty weird but that’s about it. I think even if I were to have one, it wouldn’t affect me because everyone is bound to have an opinion and there’s no stopping that.

If you could change one thing about the blogging community,what would it be? People just blogging for the sake of being popular. I think there should be a goal or a reason as to why you’re blogging – not just to be a cool kid if that makes sense?

This has turned into a really long blog post, so I’m going to end it here. Look out for Part Two of this documentary post.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed and I will see you all soon.

Soph x Revolution Palette Review

Hello!

It’s Lau, and it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I do have an explanation for this, I haven’t had any internet since last Tuesday. I’m really sorry about that between this time, I have collected a few makeup products which I am excited about..one of them being the Soph x Revolution Palette.

The Soph x Revolution palette was created by a Youtuber called SophDoesNails and I have been watching her for a while, before she came out with this palette. She is part of the Revolution team, making frequent videos for the Makeup Revolution Youtube Channel.

And now onto the review;

I picked up this palette at Superdrug for £10, the colour selection is well put together.

And onto the quality of the shadows, the metallic shadows are very pigmented that you wouldn’t even need to use anything to make it more pigmented. The mattes are easy to blend and are also very pigmented, it is very fair to say this is my new favourite palette.

The mirror is big and very clear to see any imperfections which is a pro and con.

But overall, I love this palette and will be using it again.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed.

And I will see you all soon.

Reality Of Blogging

Hello!

It’s Lau. And today I want to just sit and talk about blogging. There are a lot of stereotypes of blogging, people say we only do it for free things however that’s only a perk of being a blogger but it’s not easy.

Being a blogger takes patience, committment and effort. There’s really no such thing as going viral with blogging, people discover you and they stick around. And we appriciate every person who does.

I have been blogging for almost 5 months and it’s not been easy. It’s taken a lot of effort to just come to wear I am now, and I don’t plan on giving up anytime soon.

We do this because we love it, those followers aren’t just numbers, they’re people and we know those people and we love those people. We support and care for eachother, it’s one of the nicest places to be. This community is one of the best places to be, it’s the best place to start.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed.

And I will see you soon.
