The Blogger Tag

Welcome everyone to The Blogger Tag! I decided to create a tag specifically for bloggers, I didn't come across anything similar, so I don't think it's been done already. But as with any tag post, the rules are simple:

1. Answer all the questions below
2. Tag fellow bloggers in the post
3. Link back to blogger who tagged you
4. When you post your response and you're advertising it, use the hashtag #BloggerTag

It's for a little fun and since it's January, it also touches on some of the ambitions we all have for our blogs in 2014. It is also a great opportunity to find fellow bloggers along the way. There is no restriction on the content of your blog to get involved. So let us begin...

1. When did you start your blog?
April 2013, so not even a year old yet, but the time has flown by!

2. What encouraged you to start?
I read loads of other blogs and watch plenty of beauty gurus on YouTube that I find helpful and I was always sharing tips with friends, I thought it might be nice to have a centralised place for all those tips.

3. What was the first blog you ever actively followed?
Fleur De Force is where it all began for me. She is based in England and I really like her style of blogging, she also has a YouTube channel which I'm subscribed to and watch regularly.

4. What types of things do you blog about?
Mostly about beauty (i.e. makeup, skincare, reviews, monthly favourites and that type of thing) but I do add in little bits of fashion, tv and general lifestyle

5. What has been your biggest revelation since beginning to blog?
The community spirit out there. I have only been to one meet up so far, but the encouragement and comradery is second to none. I feel I have already started to make some genuine friendships, which is something I never expected.

6. What do you find toughest about blogging?
Without doubt my biggest obstacle for me is time. I am working full time and completing a masters part time, when you include the fact I need to eat, sleep and socialise in there somewhere too, time is a rare commodity.

7. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
When you get a comment or feedback from someone that they found your post beneficial or helpful. It is great to know (and hard to believe) that some of my ramblings have helped someone out in someway. I know I'm not writing any ground breaking stuff, but it's always nice to make some kind of impact!

8. What are your blogging ambitions for 2014?
I would love to get more involved in Bloglovin' as it's an excellent platform for blogs, so really promote that social networking platform. Then outside of that I would like to release a minimum of one post per week (but ideally 2-3 posts) and really strengthen my viewership through Twitter and Facebook.

9. Recommend 5 Blogs for anyone reading this to follow...
Fleur DeForce, Tanya Burr, All the BuzzAt the Beauty Desk & Blushful Beauty
(there are of course sooo many more I could chose, but I had to stick to 5)

10. Who do you tag?
I tag Samantha Johnston, Sarah Hamersley, Avril Murphy, Filomena Kaguako, Lisa Molloy, Make Up MonsterMegan Daly & Lisa De Jong.

So that's it, even if you haven't been tagged and you want to get involved, feel free. Make sure to use #BloggerTag so everyone can see each others' responses.

Happy tagging...
