I originally wanted to call this space For The Love Of Style, but Tristan had the foresight to delete the style part and leave it more open-ended. I still thank her for that almost 2 years later because it has allowed me to comfortably write about my children, crafts, food, and whatever I have love for. She’s smart, isn’t she?
2 years ago when I was blogging away at my other space, I thought the thing that made me special was my experience in the fashion industry. Turns out, that doesn’t really mean anything to anyone, and it’s been things totally unrelated to style at all which have brought me any modicum of success in blogging. Crafts, writing about my children, and now writing about food, have all been big propellers to other worthwhile business ventures. To those that say you have to be singularly niche focused as a blogger, I say psshaw. I’ve come to realize you have to be singularly focused in writing about what you love, no matter how wide and varied that is. So I’m going to work on just that.
My time here has been sporadic, because I’ve long held this idea that because of my experience in the fashion industry, each style post has to be revolutionary and offer some bit of styling advice. I often think how lucky that Atlantic Pacific girl has it, so gifted in the styling department she doesn’t even have to write out actual words, other than outfit details, to get hundreds of thousands of people to visit her blog each month. We can’t have it all I suppose.
I’m letting go of these self-prescribed pressures and will continue to just share what I’m into. Right now, that’s getting my closet ready for fall, and cooking a lot. You know that scrolling list on the bottom of your Amazon home screen which shows items you’ve currently looked at and recommendations based on your browsing history? On mine, you’ll see a combination of books on food, kid’s lunch boxes, sequins and glitter glue, and juicers. My tastes and interests, as always, are all over the place. Bringing all those varied interests here to the blog may be a big blogging no-no, but it makes me a well-rounded person, so I’ll take the latter over the former. Expect to see more food-related posts, less crafts because I don’t have time for crafts right now, and at least 1-2 style posts a week. I hope that’s okay with all you lovely people out there, and will enjoy seeing a wide array of different post topics and content.
And now, let me share with you what else I’ve been writing about this past week:
