Blog URL The Perks of Meg
What is your blog about?
My blog focuses around mainly beauty, fashion and lifestyle. It also focuses around my life because when I buy something I feel like I need to blog about it.
Is this your first blog?
Yes, I made this blog back in July 2013 but didn’t really get the point of it, so I changed it to ‘theperksofmeg’ and now are blogging very frequently.
When did you start your current blog?
As mentioned, I started using Blogger in July 2013 but I didn’t get the point but I have been using it properly since the 15th January 2014.
What made you do it?
I wanted to take up a hobby that I could do in my spare time and something that I would enjoy. I enjoyed reading others reviews about products so I thought that maybe I should start doing it.
What was your first blog post about?
My first blog post was introducing myself
What do you think is the most useful tool to you as a blogger?
I feel like the most useful tool to me as a blogger is communication. If you don’t communicate then you can’t get anywhere with your blog. I have made so many friends by blogging and everyone is so nice. I feel like this has helped me a lot too as I have been more confident as a person.
Do people in your real life know about your blog? If yes, has your blog helped you career wise?
I don’t think it’s helped me career wise as I’m still at high school and only a few people from school know I blog. This was only because they followed my twitter and found out otherwise it probably would be my little secret. I feel really embarrassed when I talk about things I do, so for people to know, it makes me feel a little on edge.
What has been the one thing (blog post, project, etc) that you have been really proud of?
I’m not quite sure what blog post I am really proud of, maybe my Metcalfe’s blog post.
Where do you see your blog in a year?
I’m not quite sure, hopefully I will be a little more popular and I will have got a really good idea if I want to pursue it as a career or just still as a hobby. I want to hopefully have reached 500 bloglovin’ followers and have made even more lovely friends.
What do you wish you knew when starting your blog?
How time consuming it is! I kind of schedule my week of what I have to do. If I have exams coming up or lots of homework I tend to schedule my blog posts for the week, just so I can focus on my homework and revision, as I really need to pass my exams. This doesn’t mean I don’t care about my blog or the content as I put the same amount of effort in all my blog posts and ideas. I also take a bulk amount of photos on a weekend so I have my photos already for my posts.
What do you wish you know more about now?
What other bloggers would like to see on my blog and what they overall think of my blog.
How do you keep motivated to post?
I put my earphones in and listen to music or I make myself a cuppa and sit and type while enjoying a cuppa. I tend to look at other posts on a night when I can sit and relax.
Anything else you’d like to add?
I just want to say thank you to everyone that so far follows me on Bloglovin’ as it means the world to me and your comments mean the world too.
