PSA: Launch of the new WAUF blog series!

Hello my lovelies!

Today's post is just a quick one to tell you all about a new feature I'm about to start running on my blog! The feature is called Why aren't you following...? (WAUF) and will be published once a week starting in March 2013.


Here's the low down on my new feature:

Why Aren't You Following... ? was conceived by Curly Polish as an attempt to help polishaholics put a face to the nails! Sometimes in our FB polish groups, we don’t really connect those beautiful talons with the person behind them – often one who blogs! It is hoped that this series of posts will help polishaholics get to know new blogs and rediscover old ones by means of twelve succinct questions. Most of all, this series is designed to give a shout out to all the bloggers I admire the most – both big-time and small fry :-)

I have been planning this feature for a looooooong time and have enough material (to which I'm constantly adding) to keep it going for MONTHS *cue collective groans*. Check back here each week to read a short interview with a new blogger, with interviewees ranging from big names to baby bloggers who I think are doing great things!

The top-secret list of featured bloggers is going to be a very personal one and I'm really looking forward to showing you who I love to read (a complete list of WAUF posts will be maintained on the dedicated WAUF page above). As time goes on, I may expand the feature to include YOUR recommendations of new bloggers who are gonna be the next Scrangie (no, she isn't on my list!), however, this isn't in the works just yet :-)


I can't wait to start this series and I hope that you enjoy the feature as much as I've enjoyed orchestrating it!

'Til next time (now with other bloggers!) :-)

- Skye x

    1. Thanks Becca :) It will be bloggers new and old, so I have some MAHOOSIVE big deals appearing some weeks, whilst other weeks I have little bloggers with even fewer followers than me! It's gonna be good to get the community involved. If only I could figure out how to do the same with my actual job?!

    2. Haha little bloggers need love too! And yours has more followers than mine so you must be doing something right! And let's be honest, if life in general were as easy and relaxing as polish, we'd all be alot happier

    3. True enough, true enough :) Have I ever seen your blog? I don't think I have! And little bloggers do deserve love :) I just thought it'd be fun for new peeps in the community to see the established blogs they should check out as well. I'm hoping I've managed to give things a relatively even split but I guess all things are subjective :)

  4. What a great idea :) As a relative new blogger it can be hard, to get out there and been seen in the big blogger crowd. So i really admire your idea :)

    1. Awww thank you :) :) :) I just realised that I only post once a week, which some people might find boring, and I thought this would be a fun way to post more often without having to stress myself out about my nails :) I like to wear my manis for a week and I'm running a business, so I don't have all the time in the world :) I'm so glad people like my idea because I've been getting really excited about it :) I guess the only flaw in my plan is that I only have 50-60 followers so I wonder how much exposure people will get through WAUF haha

  5. Great idea Skye!!! I can't wait to read about the people attached to the pretty nails. :-)

  6. Can't wait to see all the interviews! I have a feeling the list of blogs I follow will grow even more, and it will be all your fault! xD

    1. Muahahahahahaha I hope so! I think we probably follow a lot of the same people but maybe over the next year you'll find someone you didn't know existed haha :)

  7. Fabulous idea, Skye! I've always enjoyed reading the off-topic twenty questions type posts that pop up every now and then, and I can't wait to start reading your interviews!
