Need A Little Help? #bbloggers

I don’t often get involved in the Sunday night #bbloggers (beauty bloggers) chat but from time to time I’m on twitter at the right time and will take a look at the weeks topic. They all seem to start out with the best intentions and turn sour quickly with a lot of bloggers using the chat to vent their weeks frustrations. I get that, blogging is a solitary pursuit and it can be very lonely when you have nobody to sound off to about issues that arise but for a new blogger logging on to #bbloggers they might get the wrong impression about us as a collective. I like to think that on the whole we’re a friendly bunch but as with any group there’s a small number that want to ruin it for the rest. In theory the #bbloggers chat is there to help those just starting out or moving in a new direction, anyone that has a question that someone else could answer.. it should be about supporting each other but it doesn’t always appear that way. I feel very lucky that I’ve found a nice group of bloggers to chat to when I’m unsure of something or am just having a bit of a bad day.. everyone needs that and in case you don’t have anyone I thought I would offer myself up (in the least seedy way) whenever you may need me.

I’m not a veteran blogger but my blog and Youtube channel have been running for about 2 and a half years so I feel ‘qualified’ to help anyone thinking of starting out with anything they might need and if I don’t know the answer I know who to ask. I’m not sure how popular this will be or whether any of you would even value my help but I think a lot of new bloggers expect not so new bloggers to snub them or think they are above giving back to the ‘community’ and I just wanted to dispel that myth and say I’m always willing to answer any questions I can.

With this in mind I thought I would do a video (of course) … kind of a YouTube/blogging Q&A so if you do have anything you’d like to know.. anything at all then leave me a comment and I will film that this week. I don’t mind whether the questions are from a bloggers perspective or the readers, nothing’s off limits from layout the sponsorship I will endeavor to answer as many as I can. I will write up the Q&A for my blog as well of course but I know a lot of people prefer to watch/listen than read.

If you’d prefer to tweet me my user is @msbudgetbeauty (missbudgetbeauty was too many characters) and if you use the hashtag #missbbhelp I would be eternally grateful!

    Awwww This is such a nice thing to do! I was sooo inspired by you I started up a lil blog myself, I was so confused when I made my first post, I didn’t know my butt from my elbow LOL!! I was hoping that you would help me if ever I get in a tizzy or If I get bad feedback etc… so Thank You for being there for us new bloggers, means a lot to me to know I can rely on someone to help me in a time of need or even to say Hi to x

      I couldn’t agree with you more, it is such a shame everyone is so negative, like Lynda I have just set up a little blog about trying to cut products tested on animals out of my make up and beauty routine although I am slightly worried about the arguements that can be caused by topics like this :/ fortunately or unfortunately LOL I have around 20 views total so far so no discussion on it yet but I can’t believe how negative people can get on the internet and why we can’t all just respect each other and their opinions even if they are not our own. Thanks for offering your support it just goes to show that there are decent people out there and that we just chose to focus on the negative 🙂 x

        That’s madness to me.. so long as you’re not a crusader insisting that everyone who uses a l’Oreal product is eome kind of monster I dno’t see why there should be backlash but I know it’s not always logical! I wish we could just gather up all the ‘nice’ bloggers put everyone else in a box lol

          Exactly! Live and let live, I’m not trying to cast a judgement on anyone ive used these products all my life and am just trying to cut them out and thought people might be interested. That’s why it’s so nice to know that there are other genuinely honest and opinionated bloggers like yourself out there but who still respect others views 🙂

    What a lovely thing for you to do!
    Its a scary thing being a new blogger & not really knowing what to do or who to turn to if help is needed so this will be great, thanks! 🙂

    I joined in #BBloggers last night and there were indeed a few nasty people souring the chat as a whole! Although after about half an hour I felt it got much more positive, a few of us were chatting about perfume at one point! I think last night’s problem was the awful topic choice- ‘what annoys you about other bloggers?’, so negative and really there was no need for it as there was only one way that topic would go!

    I think the video would be a lovely idea, I know I would find it useful and interesting to hear your thoughts and advice on blogging 🙂

      bizarrely the topc was ACTUALLY ‘what annoys other bloggers’ what does that even mean?? so people translated it in to what annoyes you ABOUT other bloggers which is never going to end well. I’m looking forward to getting enough questions to film the video soon x

    I think this is a cracking opportunity, I saw the ”what annoys you about other bloggers?” topic, It made me feel so negative over the whole bbloggers chat, but last night’s general chat was much more positive and sundays was, too! I feel that some bloggers(that i’ve read!) are genuinely pessimistic with everything they do, and that negativity can spread quite quickly! I’m glad that you’ve done this whole ”missbbhelp” thing, i’ll be tweeting some questions soon!
