To kick off YouReview's first ever, 'Behind the blog' series is Claire, an Australian blogger from over at Sailor Klerr.
Claire's blog is a mixture of reviews, swatches, product comparisons, tags and lifestyle based posts.
I asked Claire a number of questions and here is what she had to say about blogging, all things nautical and microbiology.
Why did you start blogging?
I was really interested in the blogging community, and wanted to join in! At first I wasn't really sure what direction I wanted to go in, as you can tell from my posts at the very start of my blog. I gave up for a while and then started reading and watching a lot of beauty bloggers and vloggers. I started to get into makeup and thought it would be really fun to start my own blog.
Klerr is a nickname a friend gave me a while ago, and I love all things nautical (except, ironically, actually being on a ship at sea) so adding Sailor seemed to fit.
What is your dream career/job?
I don't really have just one dream job. There are so many jobs that I'd love to do, including being a customs officer, a microbiologist and an epidimiologist. I do know I want to work in science though, and I've spent 3 years at uni working towards that.
What is one piece of advice you could give to a new blogger?
Don't be afraid! You need to be blogging for yourself, not anyone else. If you worry about who's going to read it, or follower numbers, you're going to have a bad time! Enjoy it, and write about whatever feels right for you.
Which type of makeup product do you tend to find yourself collecting the most?
Nail polish! I have so many already but I still find it hard to put down a colour if I find a nice one in the shops. My collection would be completely ridiculous now if it wasn't for the fact I need to save money for traveling. I really enjoy doing nail art though, so my collection is justifiable and used.
What is your go-to/HG lip product?
I have so many lip products I love, but my MAC lipsticks, particularly Angel, would probably be my most used and loved.
Thank you so much Claire for being part of the 'Behind the Blog' series. Please check Claire's blog out at http://sailor-klerr.blogspot.com.au/.
