Why I Started My Blog

Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone had a nice Halloween! I wanted to take some time out to tell my followers/readers why I decided to blog. I actually wanted to start a blog while I was in college, but I never found the time to do so. Even after graduating college in May 2010, I still didn't have the time. Well now that I found more time, I figured it would be a good time to start blogging so that's exactly what I did in July 2013.

At first I had no clue of what to call my blog lol. Seriously I really had to think about. I came up with Beauty and More by Pilar :) because I love all things related to beauty. The "and more" part is focused on all my other interests. I usually jot down my ideas for posts in this cute little journal book to keep organized. Since I don't always keep my laptop in front of me or sometimes I just don't feel like typing at the moment, I write down a rough draft of my posts in a spiral notebook and type it up at a later time.  I do these things so I won't forget my ideas.


As you may have noticed my interests can vary from social and health issues, fashion, and crocheting. (I'm hoping to share some of my food dishes in upcoming posts) I like to keep things versatile. As I mentioned I love before beauty topics are my most favorite. In the spirit of getting back to wearing making again (thank goodness the humidity is trying to taper off…let's hope it stays that way!) stay tuned for FOTD posts…they're also coming) Lately I have been focused on social and health issues such as domestic violence and Breast Cancer. They are two issues that greatly affect society and awareness is very important. Well those are a few reasons why I started my blog. What inspired you to start your blog?

    1. Aww that is so sweet of you Liz! You're quite amazing yourself! I'm glad that we came across each other's blog too! I think the blogging community is a great way to share a persons interests and advice etc. with others.

      In speaking of beauty posts, I haven't posted about beauty in a while! I be posting some beauty related topics and hauls next week! I've been working on some crocheting projects, thats why I haven't been posting much this past week. I can't wait to show you all :) and thank you so much for the kind words about my crocheting!
