HOW TO START A BEAUTY BLOG

Thursday, 9 January 2014



For this week's video I'm excited to launch a new series that Anna and I have been working on for a while. This week we'll be releasing 6 videos, 3 on each of our channels. The topic? Blogging and Vlogging.

Whether your new year's resolution was to start a blog or YouTube channel or if you already have one, hopefully this series will be helpful and interesting to you. In this first video we're covering how to start a beauty blog and over on Anna's channel we're discussing how to start a YouTube channel

Subscribe to my channel here and Anna's channel here so you don't miss Sunday's video where we will be discussing our blogging equipment and filming setups. 

I really hope you enjoy this mini series, please let us know what you think. You can also tweet me @lilypebbles and Anna @viviannamakeup using the hashtag #guidetoblogging

  1. What an awesome series! I have my notebook and pen ready. I've been blogging for a long time now, and I'm slowly switching over to focusing more on beauty. I can't wait to watch the rest!

  2. Im pretty new to blogging in comparison to well established like yourself, llymlrs etc.
    So something like this is fantastic!
    Can't wait to give it a watch later teamed with a cheeky tea!

  3. Cannot express my love for this series more! I've been blogging for over a year or so now, but I'm always trying to improve my blog design. I've got it to a place where I'm nearly happy with it now, just one or two tweaks left. And I'm just delving into YT territory. I've been watching it for years but I've been editing my first video in the last few days so the #guidetoblogging is sooooo helpful!

  44. Oh my God! This is such an amazing series! I am new to blogger and I was unsure of a lot of things but your video gave me answers to most of my questions. For the rest of them, as you proposed i'll google it.

    Have a look at my blog and please leave me a comment telling me what you think i could improve. It would also mean the world to me if you subscribed. It's not as good as i want it to be, as I'm still trying to find my style and what exactly i want to do with it, plus I have LOADS of technical difficulties...

  48. Love the series! I started blogging over the summer and have been trying to better promote myself and make my blog more fun/creative/unique so this really helps! I've thought about the pitfalls of my blog name, too... when you have 'teen' in your username, what happens when you turn 20? I don't know... Adult Beauty Lover? Uhhh, I think not.
    I guess a name change will be absolutely necessary then!
    Thanks for posting this!
