I know for some people blogging is something they do for themselves and don't really tell anyone about it. For the longest time no one knew about my blog apart from my partner (i knew he wouldn't read it). I'm not sure why i didn't tell people and to this day there is only few people who i know in my 'real life' that know about it. I think partly because i want something for myself where i can go and talk about whatever i like, i also use my blog as sort of a dairy so i can look back at things I've done with my family and beauty products I've liked using. There has been so many time's I've wanted to buy something i have used before and couldn't remember what it was called its so good to just think ohh it was around then when i liked it and just look through my blog around that date. Different colour hair dyes have been a big one that i can remember looking for.
After i had been blogging a few years my sister Jessica really got into youtube and blogs and would talk about it all the time and wanted to start one herself but was a bit worried about it and would say 'ohh we should both do one and start together' at that time i hadn't planned on telling anyone about it so it felt like a big thing for me to tell her. As soon as i told her i already had one and had been doing it a while she got excited and was more confident about setting her own up. It's so good now to be have someone to talk about 'blogging' with and go to meet ups with. Jessica's blog is called PeachyNotes if you want to have a nosey.
There are a few other people who know about it now but haven't seen it (that i know of). I do always wonder if other people i know have come across it but just haven't said anything or if any of my friends have their own blog but keep it to themselves. I always wonder when i go shopping when i see other girl looking at make up etc if they blog too. Have you ever thought that?
I told my older sister who i do The Bow Boutique with last year just before it opened. The reason i though of doing this post is because i had told her about using the Lee Stafford hot shots toner and i was on the phone to her last night while she was looking at it on Google and she said 'ohh your blogs popped up' which got me thinking..... that could of been really awkward if i hadn't already of told her and i just popped up when she was looking on google lol (this was the post from 2011!!!) it was still a bit cringey her readying something i had wrote 3 years ago although i think im alot more relaxed about it know. It seems more of an everyday thing and so many people have their own blog now.
Has anyone found out about your blog while searching for reviews?
Do your family and friends know about you blog?
