I was nominated by Claire to do this Blog Tour Award Tag: You should definitely check out her and her blog – it’s really worth a read! The tag is all about telling others about the creative process that you go through.
The Award Rules:
- Pass the tour on to at least four other bloggers.
- Give your nominees the rules and specify the Monday in which they should post their nomination answers.
- Answer the four questions about your creative processes, which allows other bloggers and visitors to understand what inspires you to do what you do.
- Compose this one-time post on a specific Monday (date TBC by your nominator).
1. How does your work differ from others in your genre?
I’m not sure that it does. I mean, beauty-blogs are not very unique in the blogging world. I do try to vary my content so that you can’t anticipate my next post, otherwise I think it would get boring to read if it was just the same content over and over again. That is why I also throw in some post regarding other aspects of my life – to keep it fresh. Also, I think it is important to be honest in your reviews. That way other people will find you more reliable and come back for your other reviews.
2. How does your writing/creative process work?
If I want to write about lifestyle or movies or music or whatever the inspiration usually comes in my everyday life. Posts like that are often personal, so it’s natural to have the inspiration come to you as you go about your day. If I want to write about beauty, the content is usually determined by which products I’ve bought or tested out. Overall, I spend a lot of time in the blogging world, on YouTube, Pinterest etc. and I find that I often get my ideas through there.
3. Why do you write or create what you do?
To show people. A lot of my content, at least when I first started out, is nail art related and there are only so many times that my boyfriend can find it interesting to see my new creations, so it is nice to have an outlet where people express their opinion about what I’ve come up with. I’ve recently noticed that there is a much bigger interest in my beauty related posts than in anything else I write about, which is great since my the majority of my posts are about that, but the blog is still also an outlet to me, a place where I share my thoughts and though it’s a little demotivating not to have your posts received as positively as you’d hoped, I still want the blog to show other aspects of my personality.
4. What are you working on at the moment?
I have a collab coming up in July that I’m preparing for now because once I start working I won’t have that much time or energy. Apart from that I don’t really have anything “cooking”. I usually just write about what I feel like on a particular day. That is also why I don’t want to have a posting schedule – some weeks I have tons of ideas for posts and others I can hardly think of one, and I think, for me, it would be too forced if I had to produce an amount of posts each week.
Your deadline will be next monday 29th June. Please tag me in your posts – I’d love to read your answers! Have fun!
