The Round Table

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 19 - 2010

So… last week, I was toying with the idea of a “Round Table” for beauty-related questions and answers and how it would be great for me on a selfish level to have somewhere that I could “shout out” the questions I receive via email when quite frankly I’m not always sure I have the best (or at least… “the only”) answers.

I was originally going to introduce a ‘series’ where one post a week would include the questions that needed answering… but I figured it would be quite limiting for readers who may want to chime in with a question of their own from time to time.

Mr. L suggested that I embed a forum into the site and when I realised that it didn’t have to be some mega-big affair, I decided that I would be game.

The premise is simple (ish).  I haven’t added a forum for chats and stuff… think of it simply as a deposit box for beauty-related queries that we can dip in and out of as and when relevant.

An example of how it might work would be…

If someone comes across one of my old posts on Google and has a question about a stockist for O.P.I polishes in the UK (for example) – rather than post on an old topic and only receive my reply… they can post it on The Round Table (or I can transfer it there myself) and they might benefit from 3 or 4 great suggestions from you fabulous guys.

Does that make sense?  Is it crapola?  You can tell me… I always appreciate your honesty even if it sometimes me sulk for ages a short while.

Anyway, if you wanna check it out or get the ball rolling and leave a question of your own (I’ll probably be ON every question until the novelty wears off ;)) then you can find a link to The Round Table in the top right or click here.


New Series: The Round Table

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 14 - 2010

I was thinking the other night, collectively… we’re geniuses.  We’re makeup/skincare/beauty maestros.  Between us, we hold a formidable wealth of knowledge and are undoubtedly a fabulous peer-to-peer resource.

I have learnt SO much from you ladies over the last 18 months… far more than I could ever offer as an individual blogger and I wondered if there might be some way to channel this? (if you don’t mind).

I’m toying with the idea of a Round Table.  I get emailed lots of beauty questions and so many of them involve the opening line… “What’s the best…”

I answer them all, but am always conscious of making the observation that I’m only one person and could be missing out on tens of other wonderful choices and ideas… I send my reply off with my fingers crossed that I haven’t given someone bum advice for their personal needs.

So, I thought it could be a nice idea if I were to post up any queries on here so that we could get a nice wide range of advice… it could be something as simple as… “What’s your favourite winter moisturiser?” or something more in depth like… “I’m coming to the UK in November and would like to know which High Street products I should be taking a look at”.  Perhaps we could all learn a little something from one another on a huge variety of topics?

What do you think?  Would you be up for it?
