Hello there and welcome back to Post Comment Love. If you were here last week, welcome back and weren't there some good posts to read? If you're new here then hello, it's great to have you along.
I've spent the week marvelling at Spring and feeling like I should be doing something, that I'm not quite sure what it is, and somehow losing a day as I went. It's been a bit quieter on here this week and if I'm honest I've been enjoying some time away from my laptop after a busy blog week last week. When I have been on the laptop I've been slightly obsessed with a new broken link checker, and was shocked to find so many of the naughty things. Hopefully the mild obsession will pay off!
That means I don't really have a photo to share this week and true to form kept getting distracted as I scrolled through my photos to choose one. In the end I settled on one that somehow felt right, with its wistful look, it's a good summary of my week.
Bloggers Showcase: Zofia from Miss Fine Beauty
1. Who are you?
I’m Zofia Fura and I write a beauty blog - Miss Fine Beauty - covering hair, makeup, skincare and beauty DIY’s. I’m just an average 19 year old who loves reading, beauty and drinking tea.
2. How did you discover blogs/blogging?
I watch a lot of YouTube, so most of the blogs I first started reading were Zoella, Tanya Burr and Lilly Pebbles who all inspired me to start my own.
3. Why did you start blogging?
I've been passionate about beauty and skin care for a long long time now. I am constantly reading beauty blogs and watching reviews or tutorials and I thought I would give it a go. It's a really fun hobby to have and I absolutely love reviewing products and making my own DIY ones. Really the main reason I wanted to start blogging is because I thought I might be able to help people. There has been a few times myself where I am searching for a detailed review on something I want to buy and it doesn’t exist, so now I write my own and hopefully one day I will help people who were unsure like me.
4. What do you find most challenging?
The most challenging thing I've found so far is time. I've got so much content planned that I want to release but just not the time to produce it all! Writing my blog posts is probably the easiest thing about blogging but finding the time to do it is difficult. I put quite a bit of effort into my posts and a lot of effort goes in to the pictures which can sometimes take hours if I'm in a picky mood.
5. What is your favourite topic to write about?
DIY’s are really fun to blog about as I actually get to make them and try them out on myself. You get to be as creative as you want and add in ingredients that will suit your skin type. They also end up being pretty cheap as well which is a bonus!
6. Are you blogging for fun or do you have goals?
The main reason I blog is because I simply love doing it. It's the first time I've had a proper hobby that has stuck and I'm only enjoying it more and more as I go on. I would be lying if I said I'm not trying to get myself out there and promote my blog though because it would be amazing to actually reach people and help them via my posts. Right now, in terms of my blog, my goal is to get more (quality) content on there, get a larger audience, and interest as many people as I can.
7. What is your favourite thing about blogging?
My favourite thing by far is getting feedback. I enjoy all aspects of blogging; the writing, the photography, maintaining the site, but what I love most is when I write and publish a post and someone actually gets back to me. Whether it's a positive review or constructive criticism I love it when my readers communicate. Another thing I'm really starting to appreciate and love is the blogging community. Everyone is so friendly and so happy to help. I've had so many nice comments from people just trying to lend a helping hand.
8. Have you ever attended a blogging conference and if so, what did you think?
I've not attended a blogging conference yet but I look forward to it. To communicate with the community is wonderful but to actually meet up and talk to other bloggers face to face would be great.
9. What are your 3 best posts?
These three are the posts that had the most time put into them photography wise and they got the best feedback from viewers:
- Look Fantastic January 2017 box review
- Glossybox January 2017 box review
- DIY Avocado and Honey Moisturising face mask
10. Describe yourself in three words!
Cosy, comfy, organised.
11. Are you a tea and biscuits or coffee and cake person?
Tea and biscuits all the way. Nothing I like more than a well needed cup of tea with some biscuits to dunk. My favourite biscuit to dunk varies now and then - right now: hobnob.
12. What's your idea of a perfect night out?
I don't really drink so my perfect night out would have to consist of dinner at my favourite restaurant (with dessert if there's room) followed up by a late night movie at the cinema, followed up by a cup of tea in bed - although that's cheating because that's inside.
13. Your perfect night in?
Laying on the sofa in a fresh pair of pyjamas with my feet up on my boyfriend's lap, along with a hot takeaway (varies depending on my mood) and a cold drink, watching a good rom-com on the TV.
14. would your best friend/OH/mum or kids say is your best quality?
My mum has always said I have a kind heart, I’m not sure what that means exactly but I like it.
Thanks Zofia, I don't think you can beat a cup of tea in bed after a good night out either. Please do grab your 'I was featured on Blogger Showcase' badge. If you're reading and wondering about taking part, then do it, Morgan and I would love to feature you in a future Blogger Showcase!
