Confessions Of A Blogger Tag

When did you start your blog?
Erm, without actually looking at my history, I think it was is May this year (2013) 

Have you had any past online presence before (other blog, youtube etc.)?
Yes! I made a blog a few years ago. I then re found my blog about A year ago and showed my friends and family it, but because I didn't feel comfortable posting on that blog anymore I decided to make a new one and keep it private.
I also have been on youtube, in about 2011 I really got into it! I already said this on my blog before but my little brother found my channel and I got really embarrassed  I am a bit gutted because I had got close to around 1000 subs. One day I will get back into Youtube. 

Why did you start your blog?
I always wanted to be an agony aunt, but also have been loving all things beauty. So A blog is a great way to share and chat with all those things in one! I didn't realize how good the blogging community is, but that would have been another reason if I knew. 

When did you become serious about starting a blog?
Is this a trick questions? lol. Well I wouldn't see blogging "serious" until it was a job, or I had consumed a lot of followers. I see it as a bit of fun, if I couldn't blog anymore I would seriously miss it, but it isn't A HUGE part of my life.. yet. 

What was your first post?
I think it was an introduction, sad I know. But I remember worrying about what to post first, and 
that seemed kind of normal?

What has been the biggest challenge about blogging?
There has been a few things that I have found difficult about blogging, one is to try to think of unique blog post ideas. 
Another challenge is to keep my blog up to date and post often. I do shifts and unless I spend a few hours planning posts and taking pictures I won't have a post for a while. 

Where do you see your blog in one year?
Ahh, there is a difference between what I want and what I see happening. 
I want my blog to gain popularity, I know that may seem like I'm blogging just to become popular, but I gain motivation from other people comments and views. I really want to find an enjoyable job for my future that includes writing, and I believe that my blog is a gateway to do it as I'm not a very brave person for going for what I want. 
Now where I see my blog in a year is probably in a similar place it is now, I will have more followers hopefully, but I think it will still be a little blog because there are so many amazing blogs out there already. 

What is the most rewarding thing to you about blogging?
Feedback!! I would love if I help at least one person with my blog! I also love chatting to other people that have the same hobby as me. 

What is the most discouraging thing that's happens to you?
Probably seeing how good other peoples blogs are, ah, I don't mean it in a negative way, I mean as in I compare myself to others way too much. 

Who's your lasting inspiration or motivation?
Bare in mind I'm reading the questions as I go along typing this, but there is one person that comes to mind, Zoella.
I bet people get sick of hearing about her, but the fact her life has changed so much thanks to a little blog (just like mine) has made me think there's a teeny tiny chance that something similar could happen to me. 

Thankyou so much for reading my responses to these questions, I feel I've been verrrrrrry honest! 

I tag all of you that reads this!
