Virtual Blog Tour: My Writing Process for Blog Posts.

13:45:00

Hey there beauties,

Today I have a different post for you all. I was tagged by Jadirah of Jasmine Catches Butterflies to do this virtual blog tour post. Its basically about how I write my blog posts. It's about the idea behind my blog posts and to share the "Behind The Post" scenarios with you all. I really like the idea of this tag. Such tag posts provide us the chance to explain the reason we blog and share the efforts we put in to create and publish the right blog posts for our readers. So am thankful to Jadirah for tagging me. I love such posts which are different from routine. Okay I have already talked enough, now I should move on to the questions.

Virtual Blog Tour
1. What am working on?
My blog posts are always very detailed and comprehensive. I mention even the tiniest details about the product/store or whatever it is. I even explain about packaging, delivery and all minor details. People really like and appreciate my detailed reviews but still I know everyone prefers to read precise posts and they want to know about main details only. So am working on improving my writing skills and working on keeping my reviews a bit more precised. Also am working on taking the right photographs for my blog, particularly for makeup tutorials. And last but not the least am working on expanding my area/scope of writing. I am working on writing more of fashion related posts and doing more of store reviews and lifestyle posts too.

2. How does my work differ from others of its type/genre? 
When I see different blogs, every blogger has their particular style that they follow and that is what makes them different from the rest. Well I have my own style of writing too. I try to start my posts in an informal tone and always with greetings to grab the readers attention. Then, my reviews and posts are very detailed as I have already explained above. Also, I try to add more than 2-3 relevant pictures of the products in my reviews. I mean I feel reviews and posts seem dull without relevant pictures. That's why I try to add as many as I can in my posts. My pictures are usually sharper, clear and formal having plain white background. Am a business graduate, so my reviews have a particular formal format. However, I still use informal terms and expressions such as using "hahaha" to express laughter or using certain exclamations at different points in my posts. So all these things make my posts and blog different from others of its type/genre.

3. Why do you write what you do?
I write because I love to. Its not that I was always passionate about writing. It was a God-gifted ability , a skill that was in me from start (Alhamdulilah). Since my childhood, I had this ability to transform my emotions or whatever was in my mind into words. I used to write poems too which I don't write anymore. I was always good at all kinda written assignments till my masters. Now writing about makeup is something I never thought I would do but since my teens, I was passionate about makeup. I used to follow international blogs to stay updated with latest brands and new products. Till my masters I had been so busy with studies so didn't had the time to run and manage a blog. But, I wrote some reviews on a few forums just because I love to write about makeup and fashion. Finally after my studies, I finally had time and opportunity to utilize my writing skills. This is how I started this blog where I write about my passion. And now am glad to be a beauty and fashion blogger Alhamdulilah.

4.  How does your writing process works?
I don't take any notes prior to writing my posts or reviews. I just take all the pictures in my little studio. Actually not a studio, it's a table with white charts, other relevant backgrounds and bright light lamp. So once I decide that I have to review this product. I take photographs and edit the pictures before writing the post. Once am done with the picture editing part, I open my blogger dashboard and start writing about the product, shopping experience or whatever the post is about. I never felt the need to plan my post ahead. I just start writing and words automatically start coming to my mind. I add pictures in my post while writing where ever needed and then continue with the next para. After am done with it, I try to proofread my post once or twice to erase any irrelevant details or to remove any mistakes and that's how I do it.
Photo editing for Blog Post

    I can relate to what you said about writing being an expression. It's the same for me and now we have combined it with our unhealthy hunger for cosmetics :-P
