Looking for a product and landing into the web of blogs was when Snigdha P found the ‘right’ profession for herself. Running a blog – beauttyobsessions.com – Snigdha is a mommy blogger, who likes to try new products and review them on her website.
Let’s see what she has to share about her journey, challenges, earning money as a blogger, and much more:
Describe how did you first get into blogging?
Snigdha: It was very random. Once I was searching for some product online and came across a blog and found the review about the product I was looking for. Before that, I was not aware of blogs, reviews, etc. Then, after reading that particular review, I went on to read a few more posts of that blog and started enjoying reading them at a point. While I was going through them, it suddenly occurred to me that I should write such pieces too. Therefore, I created a website and started writing. This is the way I came into this beautiful blogging world. Initially, I was not aware that one can make money from it and opt it as a career. But now, I can proudly say that blogging is my profession and I am so happy that I took this decision.
What is the most challenging aspect of being a mommy blogger?
Snigdha: The most challenging aspect is balancing time between family/kids and work. Sometimes it is super hectic and sometimes fun.
Do you collaborate with brands/products for promotional activities?
Snigdha: Yes. That’s part of blogging, so I do collaborations.
Do you think Instagram (or any other social handle) verification helps to get better deals and audience?
Snigdha: I think yes, it does. Though I am not verified myself yet, hence I do not have much idea about that.
What are the three essential elements of beauty that every girl should have?
Snigdha: Honesty, being down to earth as well as being loving.
A lot of people think that influencer blogging is an easy way to make money online. Do you have some tips for those people who are interested in making money from the blog?
Snigdha: People have this misconception that social media or influencing field is an easy way of making money, but it isn’t true at all. When it comes to earning money, it is as hard as any other field. You have to create your own place and identity, which is not as easy as it looks. Content is the key here. You have to be very creative, honest and consistent to your work. And that’s the only way of getting success in the influencing field and of course for a good earning.
