Hello my lovelies, today I’m talking to Brighton blogger, Beth. She is 23 years old and works as a teaching assistant in a school. Beth talks about how the algorithm is the worst part about blogging and how she’s met so many like-minded people through this community. I agree girl!
What were you doing before blogging and how did you get in to it?
Before getting into blogging I was at college back in 2015 and I was speaking to a friend in a maths class and we realised we both wanted to do it and so we dabbled. It wasn’t until January 2018 that I really wanted to do it and so made a lot more effort. So 2018 is when I say I properly went for it.
Whats the best thing you’ve done so far with your blog?
The best thing so far is probably meeting and talking to so many like-minded girls.
Who’s your biggest influence?
Oh I have a few I’d say: Sinead Crowe, Jess from Coppergarden, isabellath, gypsealust and lornaluxe.
Best advice you’ve ever been given?
Just to keep going, keep posting, keep creating and it will take off one day.
What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time I try to create content for my Instagram.
What is your favourite and least favourite part about blogging?
Favourite parts are meeting and talking to people and creating content – worst would be the algorithm and how hard it is to grow nowadays.
Favourite beauty brands?
Freshly cosmetics is amazing for skin care! I always love the new L’Oréal glow range, Clinique, Kiehls.
What is a typical day in your life?
A typical day in my life: wake up, post on Instagram and engage with others, have breakfast and get ready for work.
Spend 6-9 hours at work depending on the day of the week.
Come home, have dinner and a shower and post another Instagram.
Get into bed and do some blog stuff, whether that’s reading or watching YouTube, finding inspo, emailing brands or engaging on Instagram.
Watch Netflix with the boyfriend and then go to bed.
What one product couldn’t you live without?
Three words to describe you?
Bubbly, caring, happy
How would you describe your personal style?
Casual (I hate trying to define my style as I’m still trying to work out what my style is haha)
Drugstore or high-end?
Definitely high street
Best advice to bloggers.
Just keep posting, even if you change your style constantly keep posting until you find that style. Also really engage with others, make sure your comments are genuine and reply to people’s Instagram stories because then you can make friends through it. Also don’t be afraid to contact brands yourself.
Thanks for reading my lovelies, tune in tomorrow for my interview with Tanya (glamglitzgloss).
