It’s been over a month since I posted anything. I just haven’t been in the mood. I seriously have had the blogger blues. No exaggeration but the last couple of times that I’ve taken pictures have been disastrous. Okay, that was probably an exaggeration but the photos have not been to my liking. I am SUPER picky and I will not post anything that is below the standard that I’ve set for myself. Y’all know I like to be transparent and sometimes everything doesn’t come together how I want. I may love the outfit but hate the pictures. I may love the pictures but not care for how I styled the outfit. Hell, I may just think I look fat and don’t wanna be bothered with posting at all!
I also felt very indifferent about blogging after I was selected at The Fashion Bomb Daily Bomb Blogger, check out the post here. I was super geeked to be chosen and I was beaming at all the wonderful things that post mention about my blog. However, with the good comes the bad and there were some not so nice comments. I shrugged it off but it still bothered me that people take time to speak so negatively about others. It’s like we’ve become a society of negative Nancy’s. I know that everyone won’t love my style or care for my outfits. I get it, I’m not for everyone but why say something online you wouldn’t say to my face?
I’ve also been turned off by this “new blogging” which seems to be this money making, branding, marketing, I’m internet famous monster. Apparently, if you aren’t making a few stacks a month from your blog then you’re pretty much a failure. On the flipside there are a ton of “blogging coaches” that will teach you how to become a superstar blogger and make the big bucks as long as you’re willing to spend that cash!
With that being said I had to think about why I started blogging and go back to my original vision of being a curvy and confident inspiration for other women. I need to get out of my own head, relax and get it done.
