Beauty Blog of The Week:- YM Beauty Blog
I started my blog way back in 2008 when blogging was a very different game and not at all like it is now, but more on that later. Anyway, it all began by chance really, I was in my final year studying Journalism at Uni and had to create my own blog for a web writing module I was taking.
Before then I’d never heard of blogs nor did I know what one was, so I did a little research and came across a few make-up sites and channels on YT. I’d always been obsessed with cosmetics for as long as I could remember and was constantly buying/trying different products.
Writing about my shopping habits and beauty experiences just made sense really, it also justified (kind of) the fact that I would buy two foundations at one time to compare or owned 20 identical lipsticks!
I quickly became addicted to blogging and still am four years later. When you have a passion there is nothing better than sharing it with other people, people who understand and are just as potty about it as you are. I think everyone should have an outlet, a space on the net to be themselves and share thoughts about what they love, that’s one of the great things about blogging; anyone and everyone can do it so if you are contemplating starting one, do it!
Creating mine was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Having my blog has helped me in so many ways on both a personal and professional level; in fact I don’t know what I’d have done without it. Being a mid-twenties mum to a five year old, can at times be extremely stressful, so having an outside hobby away from that to chat about something a little superficial like cosmetics is a much needed escape.
It’s also opened many doors for me career wise, being a qualified journalist and a blogger combined has enabled me to be involved in some amazing projects with brands I never thought I’d ever be lucky enough to work with. Sometimes I still can’t quite believe the opportunities that writing a blog can bring!
