1. Where do you blog? Do you have a space dedicated to your blogging work?
I typically blog in my Avon office/computer room. I do tend to pre-write a lot of my post on paper and I usually do that at night while watching TV.
2. What do you blog on? What do you recommend?
I blog mostly on my desktop computer. Ocassionally I'll use my laptop, but I like the desktop better because I have the whole desk to have my products, notes and any thing else I may need laid out on. Whereas, when I use the laptop, I have no where to put anything.
I recommend that you use whatever you feel most comfortable using :)
3. Do you have any blogging rituals?
I don't really have any blogging rituals. I do sometimes listen to I heart Radio while blogging, like I am now.
4. How do you keep your blogging ideas organized?
I have a tiny notebook that I will jot down notes and blog ideas in. I also have a weekly planner that I use.
5. Do you have a blogging schedule for the week? Or the month? If so, how do you stay on top of it all?
I don't really have a blogging schedule, per say. I usually try and jot down the blog post ideas I want to do in my tiny notebook, then I'll usually look at my planner and see what days will work best for those posts. Then I'll jot them down in my planner. Some weeks go as I have them planned and others I have to shuffle around sometimes because I didn't get around to writing them.
I feel like having my weekly blog post ideas wrote down in the planner helps me to prepare for the posts and for the most part helps me get them done by the date I gave myself.
Sometimes I'll write all my planned post for the week during the weekends, while my hubby is working and just schedule them to post on the assigned days.
6. If you review products, how do you keep track of what needs to be reviewed in your collection?
Usually to keep track of products that I need/want to review, I'll just jot them down in my little notebook and then I'll usually jot down in my planner two weeks from that day. This gives me the time I need to try them out and get all my thoughts down for my review.
7. What do you do with all your 'old' data?
Currently all my 'old' pictures and videos are still saved on either my desktop or laptop. I really need to decide what to do with all of them! I do, however, delete all the 'bad' photos and videos that I never used.
8. For fun, what beauty/non-beauty products do you need to have on hand near your blogging station?
I can't really think of anything that I need to have on hand near my blogging station, other than lip balm, and that's something that I have to have on had regardless of where I am and what I'm doing. I do keep a tube of my favorite hand cream in my desk drawer too.
