    I'm thinking of starting a makeup/beauty blog but I'm wondering how many of you actually read blogs.

    I've been doing a bit of research and it seems like not many people actually spend time reading blogs especially if it's made by using sites such as Wordpress. I feel like far more people would read it if it was on Tumblr. Even though tumblr doesn't seem as "professional" I feel like it's far more used than actual blogging sites.

    I have considered doing YouTube videos instead however I don't like the idea of showing my face. Plus it is a lot more time consuming and expensive.

    But yeah if I did make a blog on tumblr would you actually be interested in it? Or do you have other suggestions?

    Just do it anyway and then if it gets a lot of attention carry on as long as its something you enjoy then your time is not wasted

    You could try maybe writing buzzfeed articles or something instead?
