Hey all, I know I’ve said in the past that I would only be blogging twice a week but if you recall in my blogging goals 2018 post, I want to get more personal with you guys and focus on some lifestyle posts as well as the usual beauty review posts.
I’ve been thinking about how to go about this for a while now and i decided to dedicate Sundays to lifestyle posts and letting you guys get to know me. That’s why I haven’t posted Sundays for the last couple of weeks. I’ve been preparing for ‘The Sunday Life’.
I love the idea of series and ongoing things that’s why every second sunday from now on ill be doing a lifestyle post. I decided to call all of these “The Sunday Life”.
Now that’s out of the way, lets get down to today topic. Why I made a blog. I decided to start a blog in October 2017, Yes I have only been blogging for 4 months! I was bored one night and wanted to do something creative. I love to write but I don’t like writing stories. I like to help people but I wasn’t sure how. I also like beauty and skincare. I study online and work 3 days a week at a little cafe. My partner and all of my friends have full time jobs so I have a lot of spare time on my hands and it was starting to get to me. I needed something creative to do to fill in my time that I felt was meaningful. The next day, I was at work telling my work friend about the little issue I was having and she said “Why don’t you start a blog!” HOLY HELL WHY DID I NEVER THINK OF THAT. I Thought. That night Pretty Peach Reviews was created. Honestly it was the best thing I’ve ever done.
Why the name Pretty Peach Reviews? Well in all honesty I was eating a peach whilst designing my website and went, oh crap I need a name. Peach reviews sounded strange and since I was creating a Beauty blog why not chuck the name pretty into it. Yep…that’s it. That is how i came up with the name. Okay so I was playing around with the name Tru Reviews but I felt that it was very bland and boring.
I was so excited because now I had something meaningful to me and creative to do. I love creating posters for my little cafe to help advertise but their always so strict to what they have to look like. I was excited to design my own logo. My own image! I found over the last 4 months my design has grown and developed into everything that I hoped for. Below are all the logos and designs I went though before getting to the one I love and cherish now.
When I started, no one would read what I posted. Whilst I’m only doing this for a hobby it did hurt a lot. I was putting all my time and effort into these posts and no one seemed to care. That’s when I decided to make and Instagram and a Tumblr to get my blog out there. It was the best thing I ever did. It gave me so much inspiration on things to write and things to try out, as well as an outlet to just relax on. I love to use Tumblr after a long day of work since I can just switch off and look at things I love. Not only did it help inspire me and relax me but it helped me get so many more readers. (My tumblr is prettypeachreviews.tumblr.com and my insta is prettypeachreviews FYI)
Okay to be honest my reads per month is less then 500 but I don’t really care. People are taking the time to read what I write and it makes me feel really good about myself. That’s why I’m all so grateful to you guys. Whilst I haven’t been on this journey for long I am amazed at the blogging community. Everyone here is all so friendly and helpful. I love engaging with you guys and talking to new people everyday! I am so thankful that I decided to start this blog!
That’s all from me.
Until next time my lovely xxx
