Then I read this post and everything fell into place.
I started my blog as a journal of everyday outfits with a small text that described the outfits or explained my choices.The smaller the text the bigger were my photos.
However , for over a month now this is changing.My posts are not daily anymore,the number of my outfits is reduced and the photos are becoming smaller and smaller. As for the text , it becomes more diverse and more subtle.
What gives me a greater pleasure at this point is to express my thoughts and feelings as they happen to be triggered by the world of style and not so much the fashion industry/trends.
As I struggle to understand and sometimes justify my love of style blogging I realised that it's not the preoccupation with clothes per se that gives me the greatest satisfaction . For me it's the fact that blogging keeps me focused on something (style,fashion etc),gives the chance to over analize it and in this way to go deeper and deeper into it to wherever this might lead me.
Contrary to what happened to many bloggers, I have been able to control my spending through blogging because it gave me such a strong idea of my style at the moment that I have managed to pair it down to a few items and I only look to replace those when it is needed.
And it is needed only a couple of times a year.
I have to admit though that I often wonder how healthy this hobby of mine is .Granted we are far too many style bloggers around but it's not your average past time!What if I 'm bit by bit creating an avatar for myself, a certain way to present myself to the blogger's community that has little to do with the real me?
I beleive that's not my case but how can I be sure?
Happy mother's day to everyone!
