What camera do you use?
I have a few different cameras, but my main blogging camera is a Canon 6D Mark I with the Sigma 50mm F1.4 Art lens. A fairly up-to-date list of my camera kit can be found in this blog post!
Where are you based?
The beautiful county of Derbyshire.
How do you edit your photos?
I use Lightroom, both the desktop and mobile versions. I’ve created a few of my own presets that I use for editing my blog photos.
When and why did you start blogging?
I started Katie Writes in 2014, after several years of blogging on and off elsewhere. I love writing, and wanted to actually get some use out of my writing degree, so a blog felt like a good way to do that!
Are you a full-time blogger?
No, this is just a hobby of mine.
What’s Katie Writes about?
Mainly beauty and lifestyle! Since 2020, I’ve been focussing more on affordable beauty in The Frugal Beauty Edit. I felt as though blogging had lost its way a bit, with such a heavy focus on expensive, premium brands that are out of reach to a lot of people (myself included!) and that it’d be helpful to write about more accessible brands and products.
Why haven’t there been any new posts recently?
I’m currently on a blogging break. You can read more about that here. There are, however, 500 blog posts for you to read while I’m away!
Why can’t I comment on older posts?
I’ve disabled commenting on posts that have been up for a while to prevent spam. If you’d like to comment on something you’ve read or would like to drop me a line, you can always find my details on the Contact page.
