Why did you decide to become a blogger/influencer?

For one I loved watching others create content but secondly I have always felt that I was influencing people or that people were coming to me anyway for recommendations / advice / promotions that I thought I may as well do something about it.

I can’t swim!

That not everyone’s life is as perfect as it seems.

Trying to produce content during lockdown when there wasn’t much happening!!

Do you feel that bloggers are unfairly judged at times, if so why? 

Even when I buy things for myself and show them of a lot of the time, people just assume you get everything for free!

Go for it. If you don’t try you’ll never know. It is a challenge at times to curate content.
