I get quite a few emails asking why I don’t feature beauty spots/stores located on the mainland or do I only feature places I like and the funniest of all, why is it that I only feature my friend’s businesses. First off, I WISH all the businesses I’ve featured so far were owned by my friends, can you imagine the perks? But on a serious note, I love to get feedback about posts and these emails got me thinking about 2 things:
- Perhaps these people are new to my blog
- I definitely need to discover a lot more places.
To address point number 1, For the sake of the possible newbies let me take you all a little ways down memory lane and the reason why I started this blog. I started Beauty In Lagos because I wanted to share all that Lagos had to offer in terms of beauty, I wanted to share the then budding beauty industry and all I discovered with as many people as possible. I have featured quite a few locations on the mainland since I started BiL, yes they may not be recent posts, but I have done so. Now I see the industry has grown and there are a LOT more businesses around than when I started so I need some help. Which brings me to address point number 2. I need you guys! I need you, my lovely readers, to start giving me some recommendations of spots that I could visit. Tweet me, send me an Instagram message, hit me up on Facebook, or simply Email me. If there is a makeup store you recently discovered in your area, or a salon that offers great service, whatever it may be, please let me know so I can share! There may be someone who lives in your area and has no idea about this great salon you go to. You can’t imagine the emails/comments I get from readers thanking me for sharing a store because they’d been searching for a particular product for ages, and had concluded they couldn’t find it in Nigeria until they read a certain ‘Out and About’ post.
Also Business Owners, please don’t be shy I know how difficult it is to get the word out about your business, and I really want to do my bit by sharing it. If you would like me to come visit your space and be featured in the Out and About
series, please send me an email. Being featured on ‘Out and About’ comes with a few added extras, so please get in touch to find out more.
