I’m a celebrator–I love celebrating milestones in life! Sometimes we get caught up in the process and don’t take time to enjoy what we have worked hard for, and I think that is why I like to take time to celebrate various dates, anniversaries, and milestones.
This post marks our 10,000th post on Temptalia, which is just really exciting for me personally! These milestones in Temptalia’s history also give me a moment to extend the biggest thank you to our amazing readers! Without you, I would not have a reason to post! I’m so blessed to be a part of such an inspiring, knowledgeable community. Here’s to the next 10,000 posts!
Coffee is always a good blogging companion!
One of the most frequently asked questions I receive via e-mail is, “How do I start a beauty blog?” or some variation on that theme—why do you blog, when did you start, how do I get readers, how do you manage your time, and so on and so forth. I thought with today being Saturday and part of the long, holiday weekend, that perhaps I’d take a post to try and give some advice to any aspiring beauty bloggers and some insight on the behind-the-scenes at Temptalia.
I do want to make a point that I take blogging seriously; this is not just a hobby to me. I believe that you get what you put in. With that being said, my advice is from that perspective—I plan my life around the blog, not the other way around. This is what has worked for me, but I understand many who want to blog more as a hobby and escape from their everyday lives. These are not rules but lessons I’ve learned from the past (almost) five years of blogging that I want to share to those who may aspire to blog or are already blogging but would like more insight.
I would love to see any looks you come up with using Jealousy Wakes and share them with Temptalia’s readers. (And if you are camera shy but still want to show me, I’d still love to see it!) Submit your looks to [email protected] by July 1st to be included in the round-up! I only ask that you submit quality photos (no camera phone pics, please!) and your name (just first is fine) — it can be of the eye only or the entire look.
Stay tuned — big giveaway tomorrow with Jealousy Wakes!
“Why do I have two sets of antlers, Daddy?” My Dad is known as the Answer Man, because you can ask him any question, and he’ll give you some kind of answer. (It’s usually the right one, but sometimes he’ll turn it into a joke if he doesn’t know it.) He is one of my biggest cheerleaders and supporters–I have been told that both my mom and sister have caught him watching my YouTube videos or catching up on the blog! I’m pretty sure he frequents Temptalia more than my mom and sister do, actually! And I actually call my dad Daddy more often than not.
Today, we wish a happy Father’s Day out to all of the amazing people who have been our fathers in our lives, from fathers, fathers-to-be, uncles, grandfathers, brothers, neighbors, friends, and even fur-dads, for being there for us, supporting our dreams, and loving us in a way only fathers can.
