Blogging Part 1:
Lindsay: Bourbon & Lipstick (http://bourbonlipstickandstilettos.com)
Started Blogging in 2011, under a different name. Started back up again in 2014
Bourbon & Lipstick is a Southern Lifestyle Blog
Started out primarily as a beauty blog, but realized how expensive it was to keep up with purchasing new releases
Needed a creative outlet
The first post was about bras
Christine: Simply Stine (https://www.simplystine.com)
Started in 2012
Simply Stine is a Beauty and Southern Lifestyle Blog
Started out primarily as a hobby as blogs were becoming popular and she was getting asked a lot of questions about related issues
Evolved beyond beauty as she realized she wanted to spend time sharing more of her life and other issues, topics, etc.
The first post was about a Bath & Body Works product line
Social Media (Buying likes, followers, etc)
Instagram and why we think it's pretty much the worst at times
How to put together a media kit and work on approaching brands for sponsored work, etc
Why we both question those that ONLY post sponsored content
We answer if we think blogging has changed since we both started
The difference between Influencers and Bloggers
We'll be back next Wednesday for a new episode! We'll continue this conversation about blogging and answer the questions you sent to us!
