Get To Know Madelyn | Featured Blogger Friday
Good afternoon lovlies! I hope you all enjoyed my latest post, ‘5 Simple Steps That Made My Blog Grow‘, and found some juicy tips to help you along. If you’re struggling to get the most out of your blog go on over and have a read.
This week we’re chatting to Madelyn from Deviate Madli. She’s from the other side of the pond to me in the USA, (FYI – just in the process of booking my honeymoon over there and I’m incredibly excited to put it lightly). She often writes guest blog posts as well as recipes and plenty of product reviews. So, let’s get to know Madelyn…
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging on January 25, 2016. I actually started a long time ago with a gaming blog, but transitioned to beauty and lifestyle.
Describe your blog in five words.
Trendy, unique, quirky, beauty-obsessed
What helps give you inspiration/motivation?
I really love visiting other blogs and coming up with cool post ideas!
How do you stay organised?
Sad to say, I really don’t stay organized. I’m very unorganized, in fact. My desk is very cluttered, but I do stay productive by scheduling posts.
What type of posts do you enjoy reading the most?
I love outfit posts and dupes! I’ve found a lot of good products that have been duped for way cheaper, like the Maybelline Vivid Matte lipsticks.
How often can we expect posts from you?
I’m not very good at posting routinely, but when a burst of inspiration strikes, at least twice a week, sometimes more!
What’s your favourite post to date?
I recently had the courage to release the story of my songwriting into the blogging world.
What have you learnt in your time as a blogger?
I’ve learnt that it’s not about the likes or comments, it’s about what you want to do. There’s a lot of myth surrounding the blogging world that you need to meet a quota of likes or followers. Nonsense: do it because you love it.
What advice would you give to someone starting a blog?
Learn your genre! Don’t come in as a gamer and leave as a beauty blogger. Stay with one to three topics: a lifestyle blog is best because it contains fitness, beauty, and fashion.
What’s your favourite thing about blogging?
Photography. I adore photography. There is nothing like snapping a few great pictures and posting them! It is truly an art.
Which country are you from?
US of A!
How do you like to spend your weekends?
Scrolling through Tumblr, writing (I love creative writing), and songwriting or playing the violin.
What are the top three things on your bucket list?
Perform at the Staples Center in L.A. as a singer, go to Australia, and meet a celebrity.
What do you do to relax?
I’m very involved in music. I sing high soprano, soprano, alto, and in some cases tener. I also love to play the guitar and violin.
Being a featured blogger is a great way of connecting with bloggers, growing your audience, increasing the following on your social media accounts and blog, while also gaining credibility and networking opportunities.
