Blogmas 10: Almost a year of blogging

Today I am doing something a bit different than usual. This post that you are reading is my 100th post and since my blog will be 1 year old on the last of December, I wanted to take this opportunity to look back and share some of my favorite moments with you.

I was obsessed with you tube and beauty blogs long before I started thinking about writing my own blog. It was Promise Phan that I first discovered on YouTube and then my subscription box started expanding very quickly. After that I started following more and more beauty bloggers and soon found out, I also want to share my opinions and experience with others.

I was thinking about starting the blog for almost a year before actually starting to work on it. I'm glad that I took my time and started slowly. I spend months thinking about the name of the blog and finally came up with the name Beautysaur –which I still love, so I think I did a good job. The design of the blog was another story, because I had no experience, but I am slowly starting to get the hang of things, and I love how the design of my blog is improving.  (Even though it is in a very over-the-top Christmas form right now!)

It was quite hard for me to learn how to photograph and edit photos in order to get the best representation of the product and its color. I promised to myself, that I will always be honest in my reviews and that I will do my best to use only my own pictures (except when writing about products I don't actually have, like wish lists and similar).

It was working for quite a long time on my first post, made so many pictures, used so many light and then finally had it ready and prepared a few days before I wanted to post it. On the New Year's eve, I showed it to my boyfriend, and after his »approval« I posted my first post.

Since then, I've been learning as I go, I try to improve the looks and the content of my blog with every new post I do and I love seeing how more and more people respond to it. Recently, I've created a Facebook page for my blog and this way »showed« the blog to people who also know me in the real life, and for now, the reactions have been lovely.  

You must be pretty bored of this long, rambling post by now, so let me just add a few links to my favorite posts:
