Meet The Blogger: Meet Nimi of Hair Care Square

Happy Tuesday! For today's Meet The Blogger its Nimi of Hair Care Square
Hair Care Square just celebrated a milestone, it's 1 year Anniversary!

What make you start a blog?
I used to write blog posts for my colleague and that used to rank well in Google. Then he and I started new blog in partnership and One thing lead to another now I have this hair care niche blog.

How long have you been blogging?
I am blogger from past 6+years but started my niche blog exactly one year before.

What would you say makes your blog unique?
I write about hair care on my blog and come up with the most unique diys for hair care. Plus I negotiate with brands and come up with some of the best deals on best products around the world exclusively for my readers.

What's your favorite part of having a blog?
Meeting new people. I love when my readers mail me their hair and skin care problems. I just love it when my readers send me handmade cards. Just the best feeling in the world.. Makes me feel like I have achieved my blogging goals.

Have you ever reviewed a product that has become something you use all the time?
Yes. I have come across some absolutely amazing products but my favorites are Argan dew's argan oil & hair mask and Neesh's pocket perfume.I just cant resist buying them again and again.

What would you say is the downside of blogging?
Too much of work. Honestly it gets really overwhelming at times. The blog posts, social media, monetization. There is just so much work. Sometimes I just spend my whole day making changes to my blog and at the end of the day its like I wasted my whole day doing useless stuff for my blog.

Do you have a least favorite post that you've written?
Yes, I did a post on how to curl your hair without heat using your old t-shirt and for some reason, I just hate that post.

What is something you have to have while writing a blog post? Examples music, watching netflicks, drinking tea ect
My cellphone, cup of tea and my perfume. I just can't do it without my perfume. I just apply it and feel really happy and positive while writing.

Do you think your blog has changed of the years?
It gave me my identity, financial independence, lots of friends and tons of free beauty products ;-)

 What was it like finding out you were getting press samples for the first time?
I received hair extensions from a brand that too while I just had about 7 blog posts on my blog. IT was a huge achievement for me. I danced for a week and used to wear those extensions all the time. ;-)

Are you married?
I am about to get married this year to a very special and most romantic guy in the world. I just couldn't be happier.

Do you have any kids and/or pets?
I have a baby girl dog and she is just the best thing that happened to me. Whenever I feel sad, she just has some power to sense it and she would start pampering me so much. I feel everything is write with the world again.

Any advice for new bloggers?
I am actually starting a new series on my blog called "Beauty Blogging" where I share my blogging secrets. But until then my advice would be to
1. just take out 20 minutes each day for your blog's design and don't invest more time on that.
2. Focus on your content and social media especially Instagram. I got lot of sponsored posts for my blog via Instagram. Its just the most amazing social media platform out there.
3. Keep a media kit ready even if you are a new blog. This makes you stand out from the crowd and helps in making a really good impression. When I first sent mine, I was only blogging for a month or two and it helped me land a sponsored post.
4. Also invest at least 1 hour each day, to make new blogging friends. And I don't mean participating in blogger threads for 'Like4Like' but actual real connection. Help a friend, share their posts, include their posts in your blog. Trust me this investment is going to take you a really long way. 

Thanks so much for being apart of Meet The Blogger Nimi! You can find her at her blog & the following social media pages.
