Why do I blog?

I have been asked this question so many times and I admit using a generic answer when people ask me this question. 
Yes I am overly pouting! bleh! haha!



There can be a lot of things I can say to you why I blog on a daily basis. But there is one thing I would like to achieve – is to be recognized. I want to be recognized with what I do and I want to know if I am that credible for being a blogger. 

blogging was basically refreshing my mind all over again. It was hard at first honestly but was able to get over the awkwardness for some time. There was an awkward phase when I was blogging since I don’t really know if people read my articles. But the longer I get to open myself here, and to also share my thoughts to you, the more I feel that I belong to the blogosphere.

during our thesis...I usually look like this when I really need to go..drink some water!
Beauty blogging is like any other industry there is out there. You have to start from somewhere to get where you want to be. I am only starting in my field, so I don’t know if I am able to make it in the scene. Beauty blogging is a lot of work that is one thing. I spend 8 to 10 hours during the weekend surfing the internet to get information to inspire me to make my blogs. I actually make my articles in advance.  It’s harder than teaching students English as a second language I can tell you that!  :D

wow serious! LOL


Being a beauty blogger requires a lot of hard work, effort and research. If you don’t have the right cards you won’t make it. Not all bloggers get the chance to be sent free items to test out. I honestly have not experience that. And also all reviews made by a beauty blogger are based on their experiences, what happened for them may not work for you. I just have this thought that a lot of girls out there blog for the wrong reasons. As I said to my other article about product reviews is that I really try out the product and give them my honest review. I purchase them with my own money and all comments are as real as the mole in my left arm…sorry going off topic now...

But in reality, we have to pull our resources together to get a good article for our readers. And also it doesn’t matter if you get paid or not in doing beauty related articles, what matters is we get to share our knowledge to others wherever they are in the world.

Much Love!
