Before I decided to create a blog, I consider a lot of options and topics to work with. All of them had different public and different interactions with each of the people who decide to participate. But I settle to do a makeup blog. This decision came from April of this year when I decided to create an Instagram focusing on sharing makeup looks. I always thought that makeup was an artistic way to express my feeling, and I always loved how a little bit of eyeliner makes me feel powerful.
The audience that I gain in my Instagram has been welcoming and kind to me, even though we have tons of makeup accounts. And a lot of my friends and people that I meet during my shifts have asked me how I do it?; what step I follow?; what product do I use? And so on. So I decided to choose this topic as my blog so that I can inform people based on my experience and help people to find the beauty of makeup.
I wanted to create a little space for myself where I could, literally, say anything I wanted and share with the outside world. Like dananboyd has mentioned in It’s Complicated I was seeking to participate in the public, but I didn’t have the freedom to actually be on the public, so I seek from online alternatives; thus my Instagram and eventually this website.
I believe that my audience on my website will be the same as my Instagram. I thought that my audience is mostly female, but according to google analytics, I have a more male audience. This statistic is strange to me. Although reading Eric’s blog doing a review of my blog, he mentioned that this blog gave him material to talk with his girlfriend, which makes sense to me.
Learning about the statistics about my website has changed how I am going to write my posts. I decided to make them as throughout as I can, but using a simple language so anybody who decides to read through is easy to understand.
Also, people have recommended me to become more visual, so it doesn’t get so dull and be more informative, which I plan to incorporate more images and videos in the future.
