Excel VBA Special Cells by Column

I need to fill in blank spaces in column C in a spreadsheet.  The loop should start from the bottom of column C and step up. If the next cell up is blank, I need to copy and paste from the cell below.  The problem I'm having is my code selects all the blank cells and copies from the cell below. I just want this copying to happen in column C.
What am I missing?

Sub Macro2()

Dim LastRow As Long
Dim i As Long
 
 Application.ScreenUpdating = False
 
    LastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    
     For i = LastRow To 1 Step -1
       Columns("C:C").Select
            Selection.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).Select
            Selection.FormulaR1C1 = "=R[+1]C"    
        Next i
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Without looping try

Range("C1:C" & lastrow).specialcells(xlcelltypeblanks).formular1c1= "=R[+1]C"
