HudaBeauty is my go-to, I remember her from my high school days, I even followed her on Snapchat, I was so inspired and fascinated by Huda, she hustled hard, she was always happy, and she is confident and gorgeous of course! but what stood out the most was her makeup, I love seeing her put on makeup, her opinion about makeup, and her innovative way to blog and make videos, I noticed how many girls she reposted on her blog or Instagram, it was so intriguing and I still love her till this day, I hope to become a blogger just like her, I hope to make a name for myself in the beauty world just like Huda did. Plus she’s not scared of diversity.
SkinnyCinfidential is another good one. I love how she’s so positive. Her blog gives me great vibes every time.
Poosh It’s modern-day blogging. I like her layout and way of capturing the content via pictures.

What sets your blog apart from others in your niche?
I’m not worried about “competition” I am excited. I am finally doing something I love.
I believe what sets my blog apart from others in my niche is the spirit I have. I genuinely love my supporters and I love how creative I can be.
It hurts to have a creative baby you can’t show off. My blog is my baby, it’s me, I don’t see competition I only see me and my supporters.
What tools and software do you use for your content and images?
Canva – I love how creative I can be with Canva.
Grammarly – I’m not ashamed to know I’m no Shakespearean or Maya Angelou.
What’s your process for writing and editing a blog post?
I like to write only when I feel good about the content. Some days I record myself talking on my phone and use that as documents and for editing, I use Grammarly.
Ever had writer’s block before? how did you handle it
Yes. I handle it by keep writing. I just write what’s on my mind.
For example, “I just got into writer’s block, so I’m going to keep typing until I focus, I do love food and I also love getting back on track so I can finish” and whatever else until I’m unblocked.
It’s silly but works.
What tips would you give someone who’s just starting a blog?
Well, I’m new to blogging so I will honestly have to say, if you are scared and don’t know where to start, visit my page and just look around, look at how I’m grammatically incorrect, look at my punctuation, find my first post and examine how my blog post is laid out. Do you think I know what I’m doing? I just pretend it’s a journal or diary.
Write whatever you want it’s your life. Express yourself! don’t worry about a niche, don’t put so much pressure on yourself, just write, edit and publish, and repeat that step every day. Don’t care about what someone will say, be grateful, show gratitude, and love those who support you, and love those who don’t support you, keep blogging.
Talk about the blogging mistakes you have made.
Thinking I had to listen to other people about what MY blog had to be about or what my niche should be or the fact that I shouldn’t create a blog.
“It’s not a real job and you will not make any money” Stop listening to people, how do they know what’ll make you money?
I once created an online clothing store and a blog on the same day. Which would’ve been a bright idea if I had a game plan and have someone other than myself on my team.
Not having a budget plan
Being in my head
Thinking I need a degree to sound like a professional blogger
Not saying “No” to people
Stressing about SEOs
Not using Pinterest or any other platform
Why did you decide to start a blog?
This should have been the first question asked!
I always wanted to start a blog but because of the answers, I listed in the previous question is why I didn’t get far with it. So as time flew by I still wasn’t happy and something told me to blog again, so I did, I decided to search for topics, answer the questions and let my creative juices flow.
I did not worry hard about anything, I just motivate myself by looking at those bloggers who live off of what they love to do.
I see blogging as a manifestation now. I do believe whatever I blog about will manifest itself in my life.
What are your quick tips for better or faster writing?
For better writing, I say use Grammarly but also learn from Grammarly, read the dictionary, and make sure you research your topics so you won’t be outdated and read read read and also have people you know read your article and ask them what they think about it. I’m sure they will be honest.
For faster writing, I always say to make sure you are writing about something that you feel deeply connected to talk about so you can express every emotion in your article.
When you have a deep feeling about something you will type better and faster
What’s your biggest regret? What would you have done differently?
My biggest regret is not starting earlier.
What I would have done differently? stop procrastinating.
What are the best habits you have in your life right now? How did you form them?
My best habit right now is writing.
I love to journalize my thoughts.
I love to be in my own head and express what I want to the world. I formed this habit when I was much younger.
I use to write letters to my mom when she was asleep in her room. I would slide them under her door so that in the morning before work, she could read them and hope to bring love to her heart. Plus I’ve been told I can talk a lot so why not make articles?
