Why I Love Blogging & You!

Happy Friday! I’m so happy and excited that the weekend is finally here!  I felt like this week was super long only because the week before I was sick and worked half of a week.  Nonetheless the week is over and I’m ready for fun and relaxation. Today I just want to talk about love and how I feel about blogging and about you guys! I don’t know if many of you know but I started blogging in August and it’s been a whirlwind since then.  I’m still learning everyday but I feel like I’ve come a long way and it’s been a great journey!

I started blogging because I wanted to have a medium to express myself and some of my thoughts and ideas.  Also I wanted to put some light out in the world because I feel like we need to have a little more light out in this world.  I love writing about pretty much anything! I mean fashion is big part of me but I also have a ton of other things to share like travel, relationship, being a 20 something, etc.  It’s been some time growing and realizing what gets feedback and what doesn’t and now that I can narrow on what I write about I love it! I used to sit and think what should I write, how should I write it, is it going to get any feedback.  Don’t worry I still think the same questions but it’s a lot less anxiety than before.  I realized I was going to voice my opinion on what I loved and most people were okay with that, actually most people liked it! I love blogging because even though yes it is work I love this little spot of mine.  I love making it my own creatively and I love looking at my work and feeling accomplished.  It gives me a satisfaction that is hard to describe but a satisfaction that hasn’t come from anything else I’ve done.

After 6 months I have found the voice I want to share with everyone and it’s a great thing to know! I was very scared and timid when I first started blogging and if you know me I’m not an introvert by any nature.  I love people and talking to people and a big part of why I wanted to start blogging is to meet new people! Everything that I was scared of has come and gone.  It’s hard to be vulnerable especially on the internet with all the mean nasty things I see and read everyday but it’s been worth it for me.  I have found a part of myself that I didn’t even know I had and I’m so glad that I found it.  I have also found so many great people to share my experience with and without them and my supporters I don’t know where I would be or how I would feel about this.
Blogging now has become more than voicing my opinion but also has kind of become a community of people that I consider my family! I love reading your comments and hearing feedback on things that I do or wear or anything! I feel so much sincerity in everyone’s comments and so much positive feedback has been given to me that I feel like all the reasons of starting this blog are actually there and coming true.  I found people that will listen to my story and be honest about it.  I found empowering women that are so moving and so bold that I want to be that and have that drive! It’s like the older sister I never had. (Even if many of the ones I know are younger than me). 🙂

This year I started an internship with a well known Houston blogger and it’s been such an amazing experience! I’ve learned about the in’s and out’s of social media and how to use it for blogging.  She helps me when I have questions about emails, companies, collaborations literally anything! I also got to meet two new bloggers that are also part of this internship  and slowly I’ve met so many new people! I’ve gone to many blogger events in Houston and everyone has been so nice!  It makes it even more exciting and fun when I have things to do in Houston.

The little community that I have met through events and online are all amazing! You guys are amazing!  I love this community and all the people that are now in my life.  I hope you guys continue to comment and share and love on all my posts whether on here or on my socials.  You guys mean so much to me and that’s why I continue to write and stay up super late and drink a crazy amount of coffee the next day.  🙂 I hope I continue to get your support and continue to grow in this amazing community!

If you new to blogging and are feel anxious to put yourself out there and meet people I’m here! I would love to meet you and know everything! Also if you are a veteran in this blogging world I would also love to meet you! You guys are such inspiration and have kept this business going and growing! Love you all!

I hope you guys have an amazing weekend and I can’t wait to talk to you guys next week!

 

XOXO,
