The other day I decided that I wanted to reinvest in my TypePad blog by taking the really personal stuff out and focussing on some sort of review model. I chose to use TypePad instead of Vox since (1) it's good for me to use multiple platforms and be familiar with the limitations and benefits of all of them (2) I wanted this blog to have AdSense integration (3) I wanted to be able to experience blogging from both the personal (Vox) and Commercial (TypePad) perspectives.
So I decided that I'd write about beauty and makeup at a blog called Miss Tified. My description of the site explains why: "What is Miss Tified? It's a blog that's meant to answer one fundamental question: How the heck do I master all the products and techniques out there that are supposed to make me look good? And, frankly, how did I get to be 30 years-old and be so utterly clueless about make-up and beauty."
Seriously, I have -- since I was a kid -- been such a mess when it comes to beauty and beauty products. Like I say in the blog, I don't ever intend to be obsessed with it all but I'd just like a better idea of what I'm doing wrong or right. Over the past year I have actually begun enjoying shopping for makeup and beauty products. Yet I don't know how to do a good eye with eyeshadow or keep my lipstick on for more than an hour. This blog is my attempt to document my (and other women's) mishap and spotlight products that I'm using.
So go visit Miss Tified now!
