A blogpost about a blogpost...

So I've taken the plunge and set up this blog! I have no idea what I am doing but I'm hoping a few lovely ladies whom I follow are going to help me find my feet!
I first discovered 'blogging' through the lovely Kayleigh Johnson, a friend from my home town, who I follow on twitter. Kayleigh, who is a journalism graduate, writes about fashion & beauty- 2 subject which I will not pretend I have knowledge in!! But from reading Kayleighs blog (which I have become slightly obsessed with if I'm totally honest) has given me a few tips! She really knows what she is talking about and manages not to overwelm the likes of myself, but makes beauty and fashion seem really simple.
I have interested in setting up my own blog for a few months, but due to a lack of confidence and simply thinking I am too dull for people to spend their time reading about, I have always put it off! That is until I saw a certain post from Kayleigh. straight away the word 'GIVEAWAY' launched itself at me! (everyone loves a freebie right?) And as I always enjoy reading about the products Kayleigh reviews I was so excited that I could have a chance of getting my hands on something she recommends.
So here I am starting my very own blog! I hope not to bore anyone too much (if i get any followers at all) and that you find the blogs I have suggested in this post as useful and enjoyable to read as I do.

Please, anyone feel free to leave me some help/feedback on how to get going with blogging!
Many thanks :) Emma xx

  4. I was nervous when I started blogging (and was put off for a long time because I'm quite shy) but it is really a fantastic way to boost your confidence and to meet people who have similar interests to you :) xx

  6. Welcome to the blogosphere!!!!

    The best tip I can give you is to read TONS of other beauty blogs. You will get your best "learning" from looking at other ladies' blogs and noting their layouts, how they take photos, what networks they've joined, etc. I think it's one of those things that you partly learn by doing--you just have to keep going and figure things out along the way.

    Hope you have a lot of fun!! <3

    1. If you right click on a pic it should give you options for "left", "center", "right"...you can also drag and drop them through posts but sometimes they will not move for me either! :( It's a little easier if you click on the page where you want the photo and then insert it. Maybe more steps, but easier. Hope that helps!
