Blogging is my secret hideaway. People I know in real life doesn't have any idea I have one. I guess I just don't want them to know what I've been doing. This blog is especially made for ya'll lovely ladies on blogger, and not people I know in real life.
So what drove me into making my own blog? Well, I started out as a reader. Just reading and lurking around people's blogger. I noticed how friendly and kind people were to each other. Just by reading blogs, you could learn anything and everything under the sun: beauty, fashion, life, you name it. I found all these very interesting which led me to making my own blog. The main purpose of all these is to continue helping out and inspiring other girls.
Starting out was pretty easy, I felt that sense of belongingness. I guess it's because of the warm welcome people give you. I know it's weird though, all these ladies being really nice to you when you don't even know each other in real life. After months of blogging, I finally understood why. We are all here because of one reason, we love makeup, fashion, beauty stuff. That's all our common denominator why we get along so well. All these ladies here, I treat them as if they were all my sisters. Sisters that I never had. This is like my 2nd family, while MakeupAlley's my 3rd. ;)
We do what we do to help other ladies. We make reviews out of our personal experiences, a review from a 'normal' person's point of view. Not because we're not makeup artist doesn't mean we can't make one. Not because we're not makeup artist doesn't mean we can't put on makeup, and use great products. We don't go out here and claim that we're professional makeup artists. Although some of our friends here are, but they don't brag about how they work as a professional makeup artist. They keep their feet on the ground and act as if they were normal. Not like others who's using their profession just to be noticed, or to feel like they're on top. I'm sorry to say this though, you're not on top. We are all equal.
I say, fuck off and leave beauty bloggers alone. We all love what we're doing and no one could stop us, not even a 'professional makeup artist'. Sheesh. Seriously? Throwing a question 'Is Blogging the new media?' is just plain dumb. Can't think of any topic to put up on your site? Then think harder next time. Better yet, research harder.
PS, blogger ladies, ya'll are awesome. Keep doing what you're doing. ILY. :)
I'm sorry if this post seems like it's not well-written. The article pissed the hell out of me. Goes to show this isn't journalism after all. I hope this made a little sense though. I'm sorry.
We all have our own views and opinions, learn to respect it.
