Hello! I'm Zoe, a freelance writer from the UK. Oh Zoe is my little corner of the internet where I like to chat about my favourite beauty products, fashion items, discoveries and inspiration. Oh Zoe (formerly Sweet Electric) was founded in 2012 - reading many beauty and lifestyle blogs, I decided to take the plunge and start my own. I'm hugely passionate about beauty and love writing so putting the two together seemed like a natural step. This blog has grown more than I could have ever imagined and I'm so grateful to everyone who stops by and reads my ramblings. Below are the answers to a few common questions I get asked. If you'd like any more information, see my other pages or email me for more at email@example.com and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Why did you start writing a blog?
I've always been interested in beauty and have read blogs for years. I thought I'd give it go as I've always loved writing too. When I first started this blog, I was going through a tough time in life and online writing was my way to escape reality for a while.
Who are your favourite bloggers?
I have so many favourites, there's no way I could list them all but the first blogs I ever read were Temptalia and Cosmetic Candy.
What tips do you have for new/other bloggers?
I've shared a few posts on the subject of blogging as its a topic I really love writing about. However, please take my advice with a pinch of salt. Posts on blogging are just my tips, they're not 'rules' or things you should do. Every blogger should just follow their own path and essentially do what makes them happy.
How did you become a freelance writer?
Setting up my own blog was a platform from which I established myself as a freelance writer. You can read my other blog Diary of a freelancer for posts on getting started with freelance work and how to make money online.
