The Blogger Interview Tag with Claire!

How old are you?

I am currently 18 (and a half- my birthday is in march)

How and Why did you start your blog?

I started it on a bit of a whim one night after following bloggers like Rebecca from d is for dangerous and Olivia from what Olivia did for a few months. I knew it was something I wanted to get involved in but wasn't sure I had enough material but when I decided to go for it I found I had loads to say. I didn't even know what blogger was… I thought the site was probably called blogspot (you can see why).

What's your favourite thing about blogging?

I like having an online diary that I can look back on and the fact that I have followers now is just a bonus. I have also talked to some really great people and hopefully will meet some local bloggers soon.

What is your favourite post to write?

I like doing outfit of the day posts. Thats why I started in the first place. I have also found it's a great place to share my passion for baking. That is a lot of fun showing people what I've made and the feedback I get is so lovely.

How long have you been blogging for?

I started in January 2013 so thats only been 9 months. I still feel like a new blogger because there is loads of people out there with way more experience. 

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

Girly... I like dresses and floral patterns. I wear heels when ever I can- I am trying to be more varied in what I wear though. 

Where or who do you look to for style inspiration?

I'm a big magazine reader- I love company but I also pick up shops magazines and leaflets where I can. I would say they are as much of an inspiration as other bloggers are. Love seeing things and thinking 'ooh I would never of thought of wearing those together' I love finding new ways to wear the same thing.

What are your must have products?

I'm a big fan of tea tree for my skin- I use tea tree facial wipes (bought from home bargains and lidl) and the body shops tea tree skin clearing location on a daily basis. I also love anything by soap and glory and use their moisturisers all the time.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

As cliched as it sounds I love the community. Post a question on twitter and you'll get an answer or someone to talk to. I've not encountered negativity yet and I've been lucky to always get positive feedback. Blogging has helped me to develop my style and ways to use my wardrobe more effectively.

Finally, do you have any advice or helpful tips you could give to new bloggers just starting out? 
Get involved in blogger chats on twitter as soon as you can and learn from other bloggers. Don't be scared to talk to someone because most bloggers are lovely. Learn from other peoples advice and remember that views and followers don't happen over night. For months my posts were only getting about 5 views (I thought that was huge) but now I really appreciate how far I've come. Lastly DON'T be the person that asks to be followed (you won't get very far)
