Blog Chat Tuesday- Claudine Converses

Hello Beauties

It's Tuesday so guess what I'm up to?? Yes! Blog Chatting (I genuinely had blog chat withdrawals the last few weeks) This week I'm with another Twenty Something Blogger, Claudine from Claudine Converses (as in chats, not shoes!)

1. Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
My name is Claudine and I am 20 years old. I live in Melbourne, Australia and am in my second year of University. I am studying Communications, Public Relations, History and Sociology. I love watching YouTube videos, I am a huge foodie, and some may call me a shopaholic :)
2. Can you tell me a little about your blog? (i.e. whats it about, how did it get started etc?)
My blog is Claudine Coverses. It is a beauty, lifestyle and fashion blog. I really just write about what I know and what I find interesting. I think that way it is always honest and you really get an idea of the person behind the writing. I love the visual aspect of blogging as well so I always try to make sure my posts look as good as they sound.

3. What's your favourite thing about blogging?
Before I started blogging I would find myself making up reviews in my head when I used products or found a cute bag, haha. My friends aren't as into beauty products as I am and I really wanted to share things I loved with people who like to talk about similar things. My blog is something that I am really proud of because I was so nervous before I started, and I am just so glad I decided to start.
Blogging is so fun and I am extremely happy to be part of such a supportive and gorgeous community!

4. What's your least favourite thing?
I am so bad at balancing blogging with other aspects of my life! I have a part-time job and I go to Uni so sometimes I find balancing everything a little bit difficult. When I have an essay due I blog-crastinate! I spend hours looking at other blogs and working on my own, anything to avoid doing those dreaded essays :) Overall though, I love blogging so much and the positives far outweigh the negatives. 

5. If you could write any other type of blog what would it be?
I think my blog is very diverse in terms of what I can and do write about. I try to mix it up and I really just write whatever I am feeling at the time. I would love to do a recipe post though. I love cooking and eating good food so I think that would be fun.

6. Do you have any blogs that you'd recommend?
One of my favourite blogs is Fashion Mumblr by Josie. She is incredibly talented and has a beautiful blog and personality. Her blog is definitely worth checking out! 
Also I just love Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup and Essie from Essie Button more than words. They are both such great people and bloggers. Blogger goals right there!

7. What three things would you say to wannabe bloggers?
Firstly, START! I was so nervous before I started. The idea of people judging my writing and blog in general freaked me out. Then I realised I could just start and keep it to myself! I know it's slightly cowardly but I think it is something to consider. When I started I only told my sister and best friend. Over time I have started to tell more people and they have all said 'oh cool, I wish I could do that' and to that I say 'START'!
Secondly, try to take good photos. Photos make all the difference. If you don't have a good camera try to borrow a friends.

Thirdly, use the blogging community! People are more open to questions than you might think. I couldn't have gotten my blog to the point it is now without other bloggers help.

8. Anything else you'd like to add. 
If you are thinking of starting a blog or if you have any questions feel free to contact me. I am still new to blogging but I couldn't have done it without the support of such an amazing community, a community that I am now so happy to be a part of.  

OK, do you know why I look forward to blog chat Tuesday SO much? I LOVE learning from the people I chat with!! I LOVE finding new blogs (as if I can find time to read more!!) and I LOVE the advice. "START" is definitely my favourite advice- recently I've had a few people ask me about blogging and absolutely "START" is the best advice I can give!! Thank you so so much, Claudine! 

What advice would you give to wannabe bloggers?
