Lifestyle blog post
It’s no secret to my blog readers that I love the corset trend. I mean how can I not?
I’ve styled it on the blog before in this post Here. And you can trust that I will be styling it again pretty soon. Why do I love the corset trend? Simple. It’s the one way I can wear something resembling an underwear out without actually wearing an underwear out. Plus it’s so sexy.
Anyway, I finally put my blog together. Did some random shit, got myself a blog planner, de-cluttered the blog. I also did some maintenance, some testing, and got a new expensive premium theme (I hope y’all like it o) PS: Check out the desktop version. Now I’m ready to roll (Lord, please help me be consistent) I have always taken my blogging seriously. I love blogging, the amount of growth and understanding blogging has brought to me is almost overwhelming.
A few weeks ago, I began to feel a little bit lost, underwhelmed even. Blogging became work, I was lost, focusing too hard on SEO ratings. Trying hard to make sure I had a post to put out every week so I don’t lose following. Editing my posts so darn much that by the time I’m done, it almost did not sound like me anymore. I constantly had to google post ideas because I felt the ones I had were not good enough, engaging enough, educative enough. Someone said to me, “all bloggers are the same, doing the same shit in different words” and in a bid to not seem the same, I unfortunately lost sight of my goal, putting out content to please people, instead of putting out content I genuinely wanted to put out.
I felt my life take on an unfortunate robotic quality. Trying so hard to please everyone, I needed brands to love me, wanted my fellow bloggers to adore me, my readers to believe me. Staying up counting blog stats and comments. Refreshing my DM’s and mailbox to see yet another message from a reader telling me how amazing I am. And in all of this, I forgot why I started blogging in the first place.
To have a voice, to share my thoughts, to share my experience, to document growth and lifestyle, to talk about things that matter to me, to just be a writer without a care in the world. There were so many posts on my draft that I refused to hit publish on because I feared how I would be perceived, maybe ”people won’t like it” maybe it won’t fit in with my “niche” maybe ”brands won’t like it” so many maybe until I could not hear my own voice anymore.
Oh well, not anymore. If this break has taught me anything, it’s that this is my blog. Not a brand’s blog, not my reader’s blog, not the public blog. But my blog. No one gets to tell me how it should or should not be. I’m going to post stuffs I want to post, and I’m just going to be myself and love whatever outcome it brings.
Yes, I’m done ranting, who loves this simple ultra feminine look am sporting here, I got a lot of compliments on this day and a lot of toasters too (lol) + I may have even gotten a new job and partnership opportunity o, all cause looking cute is good business. I’ll let y’all know how it turns out.
