Disclaimer: I am going to get a bit personal in this post.
First off I want to say that I find a lot of joy through blogging. I enjoy creating outfits, especially those that make me feel really good about myself. The ones that make me say ‘hey, I am actually good at this’. Then there are times when I get down on myself and I wonder why I am even doing this. What value am I adding to myself and my readers by continuing to do this? Am I wasting my time? Do people even read my posts? Who out there is laughing at me or making judgements about me? I will say I knew that with blogging would come those who disapproved or didn’t like my style, I expected that part.
Then my sweet husband told me, if you are enjoying it keep doing it. Nothing is going to happen over night. Be patient and be realistic. I can’t expect to have a million people reading my blog posts, I know that. But that’s not really what I want. I mean that would be great and all but really all I want is for those few who are following along to get something out of my posts. Even if they aren’t inspired to go and try a new style or trend, perhaps they are inspired to pursue a passion of their own.
And that is what keeps me going. Obviously the fact that I enjoy blogging but the thought that perhaps there is at least one person out there that enjoys reading my posts and perhaps they have gained a little confidence in themselves. I will say I have been able to meet some great gals in the short time that I have been blogging, so maybe that thought is a reality.
