The Blogger Interview Tag with Lynn!

Hi! How are you? Welcome to Touch Of Belle! Let's talk a little bit about your blog! Could you tell us a bit about yourself?
-My name is Lynn Jo Chaney and at the moment I'm running a blog which is an extension of my journal. I have always loved writing but found it hard to keep going to my journal to write. Instead I started using my blog :D 

I am a college graduate who is obsessed with McFly. I used to work as a fashion advisor until I was made redundant. I also hope to move from Dublin to London in the next few months :D

How old are you? 

-I am twenty one!
How and Why did you start your blog?
- I started my blog years ago and I just started it as the cool thing to do back in the MySpace age. I think I might have only written one or two posts back then though. Now I keep it going as it is somewhere for me to write and vent and just put stuff in places rather than have even more piles of notebooks at home.

What's your favourite thing about blogging?

 - Literally just writing. Like I could sit down to do a post and keep going for hours. I like all my posts up as drafts in advance which I love. When I used to physically write in my journal I might not have it on me or be in a position to write or I'd forget what I'd want to write about. Now with my blog I save a post as a draft when I have an idea, the mobile app is crucial to me, and I just get back to it when I can. I post everyday but I normally have a week's worth of drafts at any time. I would write even if no one read the posts though, and sometimes no one does read them and that doesn't bother me one bit.
What is your favourite post to write?
- My favourite post I have written so far was my 'I don't understand boys' post. It was one where I vented and raved for ages and it was really well received. I haven't done a post like that in a while, but I must do more of them as they are the ones I always want to do and always have loads to say on.

How long have you been blogging for?

-I have had my blog for about 4 years but it is only since I lost my job at the end of July that I started to properly put effort into it.

If you could describe your style in one word, what would it be?

-Rambling, I literally go on and on for ages, and off on a tangent a lot. I always get back to the point but it can take a while sometimes.
Where or who do you look to for style inspiration?
 -Magazines or the internet. I have a style myself that I created in my head and want to achieve. I do look to tumblr, lookbook, different blogs and sites to try create that though. At the minute I am channeling Dougie from McFly's baggy shirt, skinnies and boots look. It's nice and laid back while still being dressy.
What are your must have products?
 -I swear by my They're Real mascara from Benefit and their Bad Gal chunky eye pencil. Aside from that I always have my Victoria Secrets Body Mist (the mango one), Neutrogena hand cream and face wipes in my bag! :D
What do you enjoy most about blogging?
-Having an outlet. I can just write and say what I want and put it out there. I can write and not publish the post if I want to. I would blog whether or not people read my blog. The fact people do is just a bonus as I feel I can be a role model at the same time :D 
Finally, do you have any advice or helpful tips you could give to new bloggers just starting out?
-Don't worry about being a specific type of blogger (beauty, fashion etc) your blog is YOUR blog. Write for yourself, write what you want to read and keep it your own. You shouldn't write for anyone else. In the same way you shouldn't edit what you say based on what you think people will want to hear... Write only what you want and feel... You will do much better that way, being honest and genuine.
