In October of 2012, my blog adventure began. I started my blog to satisfy my craving for a creative outlet. With a number of abandoned blogs under my belt, I had every intention to actually stick with this blog. As I wrote about my passions, and posted fabulous pictures (that were stamped with my approval), I realized that this blog was a keeper. As my blog began to bloom, I was instantaneously introduced to the “blogging world”. In no time at all, I became aware of every “big blogger” name. I didn’t know that being a fashion blogger was an actual craft/profession. Sometimes, I feel that blogging can be a little “keeping up with the Joneses”; one must always have the latest and greatest item. Since fashion is one of my passions, I find this ideology quite brilliant. However, this is not the reason why I started blogging. While I have a deep affection for acquiring the freshest must-haves of the season, this is not why I created my blog. I blog to spread happiness and strive to share my passions with the world. I didn’t start blogging to see how fast I could gain followers. Now, don’t get me wrong! I love seeing the progress I have made over the past year. I take pride in the fact that I have accomplished all of this by myself. But most of all, I didn’t start blogging to be someone that wasn’t me. My blog is a genuine representation of who I am as a person, inside and outside. Sometimes, I have to step back and remember that I do this for me. Not only does blogging allow me to appreciate my true self, but it also enables me to celebrate my individuality. I am not trying to prove that I am superior than others, and I will never succumb to the blogging world’s competitive nature. We always must remember why we start doing something because it can lead us to accomplish exceptional things. My “why” fuels me to illustrate to the world my true-self, quirks and all.
Just something I wanted to share :)
