First I wanted to let you all know that I’m having a really hard time writing this post. I’m currently watching greys anatomy and it’s on that episode where there is a gun man in the hospital. Yup its that episode, and im having mini heart attacks. Just thought you should know. Now back to our regular scheduled programming.
Every time I read any tips about becoming a successful blogger it always starts off with a list of questions you need to ask yourself. You need to understand you niche, who your reader is, what you have to offer that makes you different….and the list goes on. It’s really overwhelming. I mean I want the success and all but I didn’t realize it meant I had to so much self-reflecting. I took two weeks off from blogging (to enjoy my vacation in Hawaii)and it gave me some time to think of some answers for these questions. In light of me rebranding my blog I figured I would share it with you and hopefully give you insight on how to answer these questions too.
I’m having this new found love or rather slight addiction with all of these “tags” I’m finding all over the blogging universe. I haven’t done a proper makeup Monday in a while, or a beauty post at all (I do have some goodies coming up next week!) so I thought this would be fun. I edited the initial tag for my beauty preferences but feel free to do the full tag if you like it!
I went through this phase where I thought I had to fill my closet with outfits of all different colors, colors I knew I wasn’t going to wear. I told myself “I’m a fashion major, I need to be up on all the trends and be able to pull off anything”. Years later I’m stuck with a stack of unworn shirts, shorts that don’t fit, and prints that I would never wear. I wasted my time and money trying to be something that I wasn’t. Now ive embraced who I am, my style, and I’m aware of what works for my body. With that sense of confidence and knowledge I am able to step outside the box and not fear what awaits. I can confidently welcome something that’s different.
Sometimes Blogging makes me have a mini heart attack. I have twitter chats to keep up with, blog posts to schedule, I need to respond to comments, look up other blogs, and this list goes on. Most of which is crammed into a 2 day weekend( along with the rest of my life), and sometimes things slip through the cracks. In a perfect world blogging would be my full time job, or I would be rich and wouldn’t have to work so I could blog as a hobbie. But since neither are my reality I constantly have alot to juggle.
