My First Blog Post!



Hey everyone, and welcome to the "Beauty Inspiration Stop"!  I almost can't believe I'm here right now, typing out my very first blog post ever!  So in this first post, I decided to tell you a little about myself and how this blog came to be, as well as my plans and ideas for what I'll be posting in the near future.  And more stuff too, that I'll hopefully remember later. ;)

Ok, firstly I should introduce myself.  My name is Katie, I'm 15, and currently a sophmore in high school.  I love writing, reading, music, beauty/makeup, movies and playing violin.  This past summer I started doing some research about skincare, makeup,clearing and covering acne, and other general beauty things.  And while I was doing this, I realized this was something I really liked that I had a deep interest in pursuing.  This got me thinking.  I realized I really loved the stuff I was discovering, and really wanted a way to share it with the world.  Around this time I learned more about blogging, and, long story short, eventually decided it was something I wanted to try.  And thus, "The Beauty Inspiration Stop" was created. :)

Enough about me, let's discuss the blog.  So as the title suggests, this blog is going to be about beauty related topics.  But the reason the word "inspiration" is in that title is because I wanted this blog to be about anything that inspires me.  And for me, that's everything from beauty to entertainment (meaning music, movies, and books) to life to faith and much more.  I may include more or less of these things depending on what you (my readers) would like to read about.

Speaking of you lovely readers, there's something I need to get out there.  I'd REALLY appreciate it if you would comment on my posts, letting me know what you think about them, giving your honest feedback, suggestions, questions, etc. All that good stuff.  I will always comment back.  Another thing: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share this post in whatever way you can so that other people can find this blog.  As I'm just starting out, I'm seriously going to need your help in order to keep it going.  If you're on pinterest, please repin this post.  You can follow my board specifically for this blog and get updates whenever I post something new.  Subscribe if you'd like, that would be awesome!  You can also follow me on google plus.  There are other ways also, just please share in every way you possibly can.

Thanks so much for reading,

Katie XOXO

  6. Hey there, I think that was super and pretty much sums up what your blogs going to be about and it was also interesting and engaging! I agree with Jaz Beauty with that tag, but also something to consider perhaps a 'Products I'm Loving Right Now Post' because then readers (including me) will get to see what sort of style you like eg: neutral, bold or bright lip or subtle lip. Or for instance it could give us some ideas to what we might be tuning into! So far, I loved that first post! And it may seem a lot, but try and post often say 3 times a week just to keep you're readers involved! Thank you and i look forward to reading, i followed via email!

  14. Lovely introduction to your blog and a brief about you. Soon you'd be expanding more on your blog page and you can write more on the "About Me" section and what your aim is. :)

    Your writing style is amazing.
