    Hey everyone!
    I'm just looking for a bit of advice! I would like to start my own blog and I have a decent idea of where I would like to go with it. I have such a passion for makeup but I have no idea where to begin. I was wondering if there is anyone who has their own blog that could give me any advice on how to start up.
    Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!

    That depends on where you are now Ruby.

    If you don't know anything about the blogging platform you need to learn that first. You can go to WordPress dot com to start posting or you can download a copy of WordPress from WordPress dot org and install it in your hosting account (or use an installation service like softaculous which many hosting providers make available in cPanel).

    If you do know that you just have to start creating articles about your subject (makeup) and post them on your blog site.

    The key is to just start. You'll learn over time by doing and if you have any specific questions as you go along ask. Plenty of people here to help you as you grow.

    Embrace the old cliche: Fail Forward Fast.

    Makeup blogging is a very competitive niche. It's fine if you are at school and want to do it for a bit of fun but if you expect results (freebies, job offers, income) from it then take a bit of time and see what everyone else is doing with instagram, youtube. AFAIK the hard part is making the videos. Getting them presented is easy, getting people to watch them takes time and effort.
