The Blogger Tag!

A few days ago, I was tagged by the lovely Claire to do The Blogger Tag (please do go and check out her blog, it's wonderful!), how exciting! It's still crazy to me that people would think to tag me in these type of thing, so validating in the blogging world! You can check out Claire's post and answers here

Here are my answers to the questions!

How long have you been blogging and why did you start?
I've been blogging just short of 6 months (it'll be 6 months on the 15th of May!), so not very long at all. I totally feel like you can tell that from the way my blog looks too, I'd love to make it look more professional! I started because I love the idea of having a platform to share what I want. I don't know how to shut the hell up in real life, so, I guess it came naturally to me to have a space to call my own where I can just talk (or type) lol. I also adore makeup (seriously, I study health and social care in college, and when I was freaking out about what I wanna do when I leave in a few weeks, one of my teachers said 'well, you're always talking about makeup, you could go into that' haha!), and there's only so much I can talk about it to my friends before they get bored. A blog gives me a place to talk 'till my heart's content! :)
 Is this current blog your first blog?
No, it's actually not, I had one which I think I started in at the end of 2014, in my final year of school, but deleted it because a girl I went to school with found it and tweeted some horrible things about it. Luckily, since I'm not in school any more, I don't have to worry about that now!

What would you catagorise your blog as?
Beauty, and a little lifestyle too. I tend to just blog about what I feel like, it just so happens that that ends up being beauty most of the time.

Is it still the same kind of blog as when you started? 
Definitely! 6 months doesn't leave a lot of time for development!

Top 3 things about being a blogger?
Hmm, there are literally so many! I love the blogging community, for one, (I think Claire said this too, sorry Claire!), but everyone's so lovely! I feel really welcomed into the blogging world and that's so lovely! I seem to have made tons of blogging friends over twitter and everyone is just so full of light and positivity, not only when it comes to blogging, but more personal things too -if I'm having a super anxious/low day, I tend to vent to Twitter, and there's always someone there to tell me positive things, which is super helpful. Whenever I tweet about having a low day, I'm flooded with people telling me they're there for me, or telling me I can get through whatever's happening, and I appreciate that, a lot.
I also love that I can look back through this blog (maybe in years to come, since the past 6 months is very recent) and just remember things that have happened, almost like looking back at a diary. This is actually the reason I didn't limit myself to only beauty posts, I wanted to write about things that excited me and that I love and that doesn't always have to be makeup. I'll now never forget that night I saw The Pretty Reckless (nope, never gonna shut up about it, sorry!), I think that's so cool!
The last one is (probably a little cheesy), but just being able to read and appreciate everyone elses blogs. I'm not sure I'd have the same level of interest in others' blogs if I didn't write one myself, and even if I did, I wouldn't be able to appreciate the amount of time and effort that goes into every single post they write. I just love seeing what others' are passionate about! There's something so heartwarming about reading how excited someone is about something, you know?

What is your favourite kind of post to write?
 I'm not sure. I do love a good tag, and I also love sharing music, but it's fun to take pictures of different makeup items so I really don't have a favourite. Ew. Why am I so damn boring?!

What is the hardest post you have ever written and published?
Honestly, I wouldn't say that any post I've published has been particularly hard for me to share, after my first blog got discovered, I decided not to share anything that I wouldn't want anyone in my personal life to find, because there's always a chance they might find it! Maybe April's Monthly Playlist post? Because I did speak about going through a breakup in that post, and I kept deleting it and putting it back in, it took me a while to decide that it was an okay thing to share!

 Tag 3 (or more) lovely bloggers!
