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




 


 


We discuss:




  • Social Media (Buying likes, followers, etc)




  • Instagram and why we think it's pretty much the worst at times




  • Loop Giveaways




  • 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
