So Today’s post is about what I have learned since creating this beauty blog. In Classic Cat fashion, I could of written 100 lessons! – but I think 10 is a Good number!

Let’s Get started!

1 – EXPRESS YOURSELF! Β I think this is the most important thing I have learned. Yes -I am a pretty expressive woman anyways – BUT- as the months went on, here on my beauty blog- I became more expressive. This blog has actually enabled me to create in so many ways, to write about what I love, and It has launched a new kind of creative Cat. Not only One way. Yes I had been blogging for years beforehand on catforsley.com about music and art – But – This is MORE FUN! Β It’s Created a more creative CAT !!!Does that make sense? Hehe! I mean to say that we are ALL very multidimensional human beings, and It’s wonderful to access all that expression.

2 – STAY FOCUSED! This one has been a big one for me! Β A lot of people don’t understand or GET why I love doing this. This -in the past, has really gotten to me. I mean to say that no matter what – in general – in LIFE – stick to what you love. That’s where the passion is and that is where the enthusiasm is!

3 – CREATE a Contact page or formΒ ! Β This is how companies should be getting in touch with You! Β Not messages on twitter or instagram. If companies or other bloggers want to work/ collaborate with you, this is the way I believe it should be done. This is obviously coming from experience! Mine ! hehe! Β If it’s about “business”, then It should not come from a message on facebook. I have learned so much about this lately – WOW!

4 – GET A BUSINESS CARD MADE! Β Yes ! This is important and there are some great deals out there. You do not have to pay an arm and a leg. I did this last spring and since then have ordered 2x more. WHY You may ask ? Simple! Β When You are out and about It’s just a great thing to have. Through the magic of iphoto – I took out my phone number – hehe ! If You are in Canada – Vistaprint has some great deals.

sharing is caring mylipaddiction.com

5 – SUPPORT OTHER BEAUTY BLOGGERS AS THEY DO YOU! Β We all share a common enthusiasm right? Right !!!!!!!! Personally I always say to myself that SHARING IS CARING. Without being super cheesy! Sharing is one of the best parts! Without becoming someone else’s PR – lol! But support in sharing means a ton to beauty bloggers and this of course I have learned by sharing others posts by tweeting etc. Β It’s so very easy and CAN EASILY brighten the day for someone.

6 – USE FUN APPS to aid in your creativity! Β There are so many out there! Personally My favourite is Polyvore. It’s easy to use and You can create absolutely ANYTHING from home decor to Face charts!

7 – FOLLOW YOUR OWN FORMULA! BE yourSelf!!!!!!! Yes there are tons of great books out there. On beauty blogging, on being a YouTuber – all that. I’m sure they are amazing. I am just saying – Do Your own thing and Let Your individuality Shine! Β Read Read Read Yes always! But, the only formula that is gonna work for you is YOURS! How You do things – How You express Yourself! We are all individuals and that to me, is super important to keep in mind.

 

step away from social media mylipaddiction.com

8 – TURN THE SOCIAL MEDIA STUFF OFF SOMETIMES. Also from experience! Haha! Especially after giveaways when I had to “WOMAN” my site for hours and hours – I became exhausted. We all know that staring at or into a screen is tiring. Learn to take breaks on the weekends or whenever suits YOU!

 

9 – WRITE TO COMPANIES YOU WOULD LIKE TO COLLABORATE OR WORK WITH! Β What’s the worst that could happen right ? They could say NO! Β And Onwards You go! Β It’s fun to reach out! Β Do Your research and Go for it!

Β 10 – Whatever Your Goal is in Beauty Blogging: whether it be something You do on the side or have BIG FUTURE GOALS- Have fun with IT! Β Have Fun – YES ! Sometimes we forget! Sometimes we forget to smell the proverbial roses! Β So However you do it – ENJOY IT !!!!

enjoy what You do mylipaddiction.com

Hope You Enjoyed My Post !!!!!

I loved creating it!

My Goals are Huge, but in the end it’s the connections I’ve made and the whole journey that matters the most !

See You on Sunday xoxoxox

    I love this! I have to agree with stepping away, I felt like I needed to sort of take a mini break. Life kind of takes over and sometimes it’s good to just give yourself sometime for other things. Sending big hugs your way! xoxo ❀
