This is a very exciting post for me! Today is the launch of mine and Hannah's new blog: Pretty Chatty!!
As many of you know, last June Hannah and I embarked as blogging partners with Beauty Forum on Tumblr. It was one of the most fun projects I've ever had the pleasure of being a part of. Unfortunately Tumblr may not have been the right outlet for us since not only do we each have our own separate pages, but it opened us up to a lot of unwelcome criticism for a project that was less than six months old. We hoped to be a successful beauty blog on Tumblr, but most on that website are looking for quick frequent posts with pictures of pretty makeup to be honest. Hannah and I also set out to be more than that. We took hours on posts because we wanted to be thorough and detailed, so our posts were definitely quality over quantity. It was well received by most, but we wanted more, but it wasn't the right time for either of us. Our lives became over run by work and school and our personal lives. Those were our priorities.
Now here we are, coming up on summer once again and ready to undertake a bigger better project for us here on Blogger. We miss blogging, we missing blogging together especially. We wanted Pretty Chatty to be all us, all the time. We're expanding our content from makeup and hair and beauty to everything really, our lives. There's so much more to us than makeup hauls and nail polish collections. We're excited to share that with our readers. Hence the name, Pretty Chatty. It's still the pretty part: the makeup, the beauty, but now it's us being chatty with our readers about other aspects of ourselves.
Hannah is one of my absolute best friends in the world and I'm so lucky to be starting another project together. I hope you'll head over there to check it out and follow. Pretty Chatty is going to be big, we have big hopes for it and we hope you'll join us.
