Welcoming and friendly, the blogging community has attracted more and more bloggers to its fold in the last couple of years. Seen as something that used to be quite a niche hobby for the diehard Tumblr geeks, blogging has expanded to become not only a hobby, but an industry.
Like many things, blogging started off as an incredibly female dominated field, but has quickly moved into more of an equal grounding. Male bloggers have had a smooth transition from being put into stereotypical boxes expecting them blog on all things male like tech and football, and are now enjoying success blogging about all things beauty and fashion along with us ladies.
One such blogger, Owen Frostie has enjoyed great success, and his honest and frank blogs about anything and everything have attracted him a massive 25k Twitter followers. I met Owen on Twitter long before this interview was conducted, and he is a pleasure to collaborate with, has recommended me some great products and is very, very dedicated to his blog.
Not only has be managed to bag some great products to review, but he has also worked hard to get interesting interviews on his site, and you can tell from talking to him that blogging is his passion and his blog will continue to be a great success. I caught up with Owen and asked him a few questions about his blogging.
