#FollowFriday | Rosaleen Gallagher

Starting from this Friday, I will be sharing interesting followers of my blog, on my blog.

I love the WordPress community because it allows a lot of interaction between bloggers. I love discovering other bloggers with similar interests, and am very encouraged when I receive “like” and comments on my posts which further motivates me to produce more good quality posts.

Hence I came up with the idea of sharing these bloggers that share the same interests as I do and also inspire me with their posts. If you enjoy reading my blog, you’ll also highly likely enjoy reading theirs! 😉

The first blogger I’d like to share with you is Rosaleen Gallagher. She blogs at http://rosaleengallagher.wordpress.com/ which she affectionately calls “Mixed Gems” with topics about Beauty, Fashion, Culture & Lifestyle. Unbelievable as it may seem (to me), she started following my blog 7 months ago and those were the times when each follower I gained was a milestone in my blogging journey. It still is now, except it’s more like every 10th follower is a new milestone. 😛

I’ll let Rose share about herself from her About page here.

My name is Rosaleen Gallagher and I am known to most as Rose. I am a 22-year-old English Literature student in Liverpool, originally from Birmingham.

In September 2010, I launched Mixed Gems. Initially I was exploring my love for writing, but now my blog has become an integral part of my everyday routine and my favourite hobby. It has been read by the likes of Pixie Lott and attracts thousands of viewers every week.

As well as blogging, I love all areas of social media. In January 2012, my twitter feed was longlisted for the Marie Claire Best Beauty Twitter Feed Award.

During my spare time, I like to do lots of creative things. I was trained from scratch as a makeup artist at my favourite Liverpool salon, Peaches and Cream. Most recently I have joined Bethanie Lunn’s team as a writer for The Modern Girl’s Guide, one of my favourite blogs.

I love that we’re both of similar age and she really inspires me that it’s possible to accomplish so much more by sharing about the passions in our life.

If you think this “Follow Friday” blog topic is a great idea, please like it, follow me and who knows, you might be the next featured #FollowFriday blogger here! 😉
