I woke up to the AMAZING news that my blog has won a ‘Blogger Recognition’ award. Thank you very much for believing in me (and my blog), Beauty & The Ballroom, without followers like you, I wouldn’t still be posting! We’re part of the Sisterhood!

How ‘Beauty Bae’ came about…

I started this blog on the 2nd of February 2016. I had experience of blogging and writing for national and regional publications, but I wanted to focus on something I enjoyed. I love my make-up, skincare, fashion and haircare products (in that order), so I figured that ‘Beauty Bae’ was the best way forward.

I didn’t know that even after months of stopping, I’d open my WordPress back in November time of last year to almost 60 followers. Thank YOU!

In a short space of two months, my blog is now followed by over 113 bloggers, read by 1,500 users a month, has a sponsor in Harmony Life, and was featured on John Frieda’s website  as well as social-media profiles!

My advice to prospective or new bloggers?

Be yourself. We are all unique, we all have our likes and dislikes, so work with those when choosing what to write about or what type of persona to portray in your posts.

So, yeah, choose a topic that you can write a million posts about and still not get bored of, and be yourself in your writing and choosing of posts…

Remember, your blog is YOURS and is supposed to show you off , acting as a representation of who you are as a person, and what people would get if they were ever to spend a little tI’ve with you…
