#TravelTuesday Guest Blog
I am often on the scout for new blogs to read on different topics. I find most bloggers refreshing in that they are not scared to share an opinion and this often brings a whole range of different ideas and impressions to their writing.
I also get asked where to find bloggers to follow, so I have decided to try and feature some in my Travel Tuesday series in the attempt to introduce people to different influences.
This weeks blogger is: Seri from Style with Me Pretty
1. Who are you and where are you from?
My name is Seri and I am a beauty and lifestyle blogger from South Africa
2. What made you want to start blogging and how long have you been doing it?
I started blogging in October 2016. Before i started, I used to read other beauty blogs and I love so many things in life and was desperate to share it with you guys. But I was so scared to start a blog at first the reason is because there are so many good bloggers out there that write about the same things(beauty/fashion) I was afraid I wont fit in. I said to myself fear is always within us. Fear to me means two things “ forget everything and run “ OR face everything and rise” I believe to try and then fail instead of fail before I can even try. So that’s when I started it all and really enjoy sharing different topics such as beauty, lifestyle advice and fashion. My personal life experiences also prompted me to share with others what I was going through and to make it known to others that they were not alone. Being a south African blogger I never knew I would get followers from abroad which makes me content that everyone appreciates what I do.
3. What does your blog focus on?
A bit of everything. Beauty being the main topic and lifestyle including a bit of everything that I love: Food, Disney, Travel and much more!
4. What tips can you give people to grow their blog audience?
Tips which I learnt in my 1 year of blogging:
Always be kind and polite to everyone. Visit other beauty blogs and leave a comment with something like this “ Hey, I’m a new blogger, Would love if you would check me out sometime” then who knows, that person will start following you and not only that, anyone might just click on it ❤
Communicate with many bloggers as possible. Don’t feel scared to ask for help. If you want I would love to help you as much as I can. Just pop me a DM or email and I will respond to you before you know it😉.
Another tip is to post regularly. I notice that when I post regularly my view count seems to get higher and higher but as soon as I don’t post for quite sometime, It does not attract many and therefore my views become lower.
Also, Don’t forget to have social media increases traffic for your blog. If you posted on the blog today, you can announce that on social media saying “ Hey guys, check out my latest blog post” .
5. Where can people find you? Website and Social media?
Website : https://stylewithmepretty.wordpress.com
Instagram: @stylewithmepretty /
6. What exciting project do you have in the pipeline for your blog?
At the moment, nothing much. Although, I have tons of new content for my viewers.
7. What is the funniest experience you have had with your blog?
When I was writing a draft of all my ideas with all wrong grammar/ spelling mistakes and WordPress has a option “Publish” normally it has draft option or publish but I actually published it on public 😂
