I started my journey as a blogger in March 2012 as I had been reading other beauty blogs and thought this is something that I'd really like to do myself. Being a beauty therapist starting a beauty blog was an obvious choice so Beauty by Emma was born. I honestly never thought for one minute that firstly anyone would actually read my blog and second that any brands would want to work with me so I feel truly blessed that my blog has got to where it is today.
For me there was a massive learning curve involved in blogging, I pretty much knew nothing about writing, photography, how to promote my blog or how to work professionally with brands on reviews and companies like Total Media who offer media buying. Over the years I've managed to pick up tips and advice from other friendly bloggers and I've really enjoyed the learning process, I'm still learning new things everyday.
After around 18 months of blogging I decided to start a second blog that focused more on the parenting aspect of my life as I wanted to keep beauty and my life as a mum separate. I wasn't sure if having 2 blogs would work out and it's not for everyone but it works really well for me and I thoroughly enjoy writing posts for both blogs.
Almost 3 years on and I'm even thinking about starting a third blog dedicated to health and fitness as that's something that is a big part of my life at the moment and I think it might help me to stay motivated and on track with my weight loss. Starting a blog was probably one of the best decisions I ever made, it's given me and my family countless amazing opportunities and I'm very thankful for everything we've been lucky enough to receive so far. Hopefully I'll still be blogging for many years to come.
