Step Into My Blogging World! A Virtual Blog Tour.

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Hi Dolls!
Today is the day I finally beat my blogging blues and got round to doing this much-needed post. The lovely Huda from The Lipstickholic blog tagged me in her "Virtual Blog Tour" post and I was beyond excited to be nominated. Basically, we have to give our readers a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes in blogging. So now, my well-preserved secret blogging tips will be known to all *sigh* Just kidding, I have no secret tips or formulas as you will soon discover. On the upside however, you get to see how I do what I do!

On to the questions then!
1. What am I working on?
I am always on the lookout for better blog design, template tweaks and hacks to make my blog look prettier. So this is an area that I focus on and try to improve now and then. Also, I am working on creating better images by paying more attention to light, angle and editing of my product photos. So as such, nothing special that I am working on at the moment. But hey, one can never tell when inspiration might strike and a vogue-worthy post might pop up on this blog :D

2. How does my work differ from others of its type/genre?
Just like how every writer has their own voice, so does every blogger. For me, I pay attention to creating posts that are grammatically correct, are in a conversational tone and to the point. I do write detailed posts but even then I try to keep them short. Long, draggy posts are not my thing and statistics too have favored concise pieces of writing over long-winding ones.

3. Why do you write what you do?
I like to share and I like to write down stuff. So these two interests of mine fit conveniently with the concept of blogging. I have lots of interests and I would have loved to create a separate blog for each, however this is not possible. Hence, the easiest way out was to create a blog with all things that girls loved such as makeup, food, fashion etc. That's how the name of this blog, All Things Girlish, came to be.  

4. How does my writing process work?
My writing process is quite simple.I don't dwell too much on perfection however I need to feel satisfied with what I have written before I publish.  It all begins with a brainwave such as an idea which I dutifully note down or a product that catches my eye. 
If it’s an idea, I brainstorm a bit and try to write down my thoughts so as to get the idea in perspective. If it’s a product, I again note down my thoughts about it as well as study the product for other areas such as packaging, weight, price, availability etc. Since most of my work begins with me noting stuff down, its no surprise I use the Evernote software to keep my thoughts at one place. I feel at ease knowing my precious ramblings are stored away safe in a fluffy cloud somewhere!
Once I know which way I am headed, I begin to write the post directly in blogger, adding and adjusting fonts, images etc. as I go. When I am done, I add my big pink signature to the end of the post, wriggle my fingers in joy and hit the publish button like a Boss! 

And here ends our virtual tour of my humble little blog! :P I told you, there was nothing top-secret about how I blog. Still you managed to read this far, so thanks for that!

I nominate ANYONE who wants to take part! So fellow blogger, if you find this tag fun, then you are IT! Surprise me :D
