Today officially marks one year of blogging! It’s been a beautiful journey and I have grown in so many ways – not only in numbers, but also in experience. Although I celebrated my one year Instagram-iversary last month, I didn’t launch my blog until a month later. That’s why I celebrate the launch of my blog today! To celebrate my one year blog-iversary, I’ve compiled a list of the 5 most common questions I receive about blogging.
1. What made you want to become a fashion blogger?
My style has always been something that people have admired. I’ve often been asked where I purchased something I’m wearing, and I’ve loved telling people where it could be found. Sharing style tips with friends has always been part of my daily life, but only after realizing how passionate I was about doing this, I decided to take it a step further and began sharing them with my Insta-friends. As an expressive person and someone who has always loved to write, blogging fit my need for a creative outlet.
It’s true that I love sharing my personal style for fashion inspiration as well as style tips with women, but I want to take my writing beyond that and share something that is a bigger part of my heart. I love to offer words of encouragement and inspirational posts, because I believe that beyond what a woman looks on the outside, it’s her inner beauty that will shine through. I am passionate about helping women to face the world with confidence and smiles despite the struggles of life.
3. How would you describe your style?
It’s very hard to narrow my style down to one word. I love to style outfits that are timeless, classy, girly, sophisticated, and elegant. I also love to combine these with edgy vibes to bring out my playful side.
4. What do you love about blogging?
Blogging meets many of my personal fulfillment needs. For starters, it encourages my passion for fashion. It awakens my creative side as I get to come up with new post ideas and create fun content. It meets my desire to build genuine relationships as I get to network both locally and through social media. It meets my #GIRLBOSS dreams as I get to manage the business side of things and work for myself. It satisfies the born writer in me as I get to share my heart with those interested in similar topics. Finally, blogging gives me a reason to elevate my natural drive and motivation by always creating new goals and looking for ways to challenge myself. With the many challenges encountered and diverse talents required to become a great blogger, I am very fulfilled and love what I do!
5. What drives you to keep going?
The opportunities I have to inspire women like you is by far my favorite thing about blogging. The feedback I get from women who are encouraged by my posts means so much to me. The emails that say “Thank you for doing what you do” fill my heart with so much joy. I am moved by the simple thought that someone would take the time to appreciate what I do and share with me what an impact I’ve made on their life. This is something I am incredibly appreciative of! I would not be where I am without my blogging friends and people I’ve met along the way who motivate me to keep pursuing what I love. Thank YOU for being the driving force that keeps me going!
What other questions would you like to see answered about my blog or about me? I’d love to talk about what’s on your minds in future posts, so be sure to say hello and drop a little comment!
